Weekend Craziness!

Man, I am exhausted.  I went to sit and read a book at 7pm last night and fell asleep for the whole night. Why so tired you ask?  Well, I had a crazy awesomely packed weekend.  This past weekend one my best friends got MARRIED.   It was one of the most love filled, fun weekends I have ever experienced.  These are two of my most favorite people in the world, and I was so honored to be a part of their day and celebrate with them.

The rehearsal dinner on Thursday was at Cooper’s Hawk, yum.  No big deal we had the WHOLE bottom floor rented out just for us.  AH-MA-ZING.

I have to admit, Friday during the day/morning was probably my favorite part of the whole weekend. Just getting to hang out and spend time with some of my closest friends while we are all getting ready was so fun.  It is not very often I get to spend this kind of time with these ladies whom I love so very much, so I really enjoyed it.  Another awesome part of the weekend was being able to give Krissy all the awkward attention she deserved.  Her and I have had many discussions about how this is one of the aspects of getting married we both dislike.  All eyes on you, all the time.  Can you say uncomfortable!?  Just trying on wedding dresses alone made me feel so vain, everybody look at me look at me!  I totally felt her pain.  Although I can’t say I helped the situation…I mean look at this girl.  How could you not stare??

The night was filled with drinks,  dancing,  funny pictures and lots of love.  I hope it all turned out as she wanted it to, I know we all sure had a good time.  Hope you two lovebirds are having an even better time in Spain right now 🙂

Saturday morning I forced myself to workout, run some errands and do the usual cleaning and what not.  But man I was worthless for a better part of the day.  I sure don’t recover how I used to.  Okay, who am I kidding I never recover well.  Later that afternoon, Shain and I went on our annual Christmas Tree hunt with his family.  Always a fun tradition that I look forward to.

That same evening we headed to a friend’s Christmas party which was also a ton of fun and sooooo much good foooooood ( I would expect nothing less Ami!).  I also have a confession….I did have one cookie.  I know, I know.  December “no sweets” challenge bla bla bla.  BUT I avoided cheesecake, wedding cake and an ENTIRE sweets TABLE FOR GOODNESS SAKE for the wedding so really I’m not that bad right? (Don’t be mad Krissy, I drank countless cocktails)  Anyway, that little cookie surprisingly did not send me into a sugar frenzy, phew.  Crisis avoided.

On Sunday,  Shain and I pretty much spent all day running errands and getting our decorations and tree all set up.  It is finally all done!  It is awesome to just sit in our cozy little living room and take in all the lights.

All in all, it was a good weekend.  I don’t always love how crazy this time of year is, but I do love all the friends and family I get to spend time with.  Ready to get back into somewhat of a routine this week!

 

Stay blessed in the mess! 🙂
