This week for #wcw I wanted to feature a rising star 💫 whose family business 🚗@mcgrathauto 🚖 has been killing it lately! Well, technically since 1957, but with the #nextgen now coming up through the ranks coupled with incredible mentorship from their parents, there is nothing this hilarious, fun-loving, philanthropic family can't do! @lmcvasquez is quite literally one of my oldest friends. She was always the popular 👱🏻♀️🤳🏻, cool kid at school that I was trying be like and somehow convince her 🙏🏻 to like me (as was my mother!) 😂. Lindsay wasn't the stereotypical meangirl - but just the opposite. She was the popular girl who broke through the seemingly unavoidable clicks in high school (and well, in life) and was friends with everyone. She is the one who could make #fetch happen. She has one of the kindest hearts ♥️ of anyone you'll ever meet, can make you laugh 🤣😂 until you cry, and really cares about everyone around her. Not for the 📽 press or to for any self gain, but because that's just who she is and was raised to be (shout out to @mckay821 & Papa Pat❕) So, here's a glimpse at some things you may not know about this #mogulmom :
1️⃣ we share the same birthday 🎂🎁🎉 and while I'm not sure technically who came first but she is def the wiser 👵🏻 #maythefourthbewithyou
2️⃣ I think it's safe to say that, between the two of us (and @llongthomas ), the number of 🍞🧀 salt bagels with light plain cream cheese consumed at @brueggers between 1996-2001 is def pressing on four figures 😬
3️⃣ she and her husband @vasquez1johnny (who is also #slaying in the family biz) have two adorable sons, Briggs and Frankie 👨👩👦👦
4️⃣ her family opened the @mcgrathamphitheatre after the great flood of 2010 to help make Cedar Rapids great again (🚨breaking news! There are still tickets available to 🎵 @boyziimen and @envoguemusic 🎶 but get them before they're gone!) •
Lindsay thanks for always showing me that you can do it all. Be a total boss and incredible mother. An amazing daughter, sister, wife, and friends while running a rapidly growing, incredibly successful company. You truly are #inspirational#momswhoinspire#momlife#momboss#inspiration#womenentrepreneurs#womenbosses
The first day of 4th grade. She is the bravest, kindest, funniest 9 year old girl I know. This has been a steady season of upheaval and change, but she has taken it all in stride with a gracious spirit and generous attitude. I literally could not have asked for a better big sister in our little Berry bunch. Good vibes appreciated, because being the new girl can be a little overwhelming at first. Can't wait to see what 4th grade and Highland Elementary hold for my fierce! #LaylaGrayce#fierce#maythefourthbewithyou#theswankylittleberrys
To my one and only...Happy Birthday Obiwan today is your day and we're going to have so much fun! I wish you could really know how much I love you and how much you have changed my life. Thanks for being my truest friend in life and for joining me 4 years ago today🎂💙💚💛❤️#maythefourthbewithyou#birthdayboy#sohandsome 🖖🏼4️⃣🐕
@Regrann from @dani_nemeh - Happy #maythefourthbewithyou 🤓alright, I've actually never watched Star Wars...but this day is special to me because 5 years ago Jim and I went on our first date! We celebrate every year by recreating our date night--watching Avengers & take out from a small vegan spot. & now we get to enjoy it all with our Charlie👶🏻💕 - #regrann
Marry the one that makes you laugh uncontrollably.
Marry the one as weird as you.
Marry the one who loves YOU.
This couple has been on the books for a while, but we have been holding back on posting for these adorable engagement photos and this was SO well worth the wait. 🍑🍑🍑
These two are seriously a bad ass couple who are all things nerd. Their intimate elopement will include #StarWars , #HarryPotter , and #hopsbeer . You guys, I've been WAITING for this couple. The cherry on top? Their wedding day is on #maythefourthbewithyou day!
We already love you two so much and feel so privileged to be one of few that will witness your joy and love on May 4th 2018 in Bend!
Our friend @laurenreberphotography captured their lovely #engagement photos. We can't wait to work with you on their big day!

Half of me likes running for goals in our company to get invited to really prestigious parties 🍾🎉
The other half of me loves doing it so I can dress up fancy with my boo and get to walk around showing her off 💃🏼🕺🏼
