I've spent a good amount of my time in the last week (and month really) focused on a friend's wedding, which was this weekend, so these are going to be a little wedding themed.
This is kind of cheating because its from two weeks ago, but since I missed last week, I figure I can include it. I mentioned last time that I was getting ready for a the bachelorette party. Well it happened and we had a great time! The five of us girls have known each other since high school, and its always great to get together! We did some shopping, just a great dinner, went to a whiskey bar, and checked out some speakeasies! All super fun. Just to show off, here's the loot from the party survival kits I put together for the girls :).
The rehearsal dinner was held on the outside patio of a beautiful restaurant. While the dinner itself was great, a highlight of it was that Up was playing on a big screen in the plaza next to the restaurant. Up is definitely my favorite movie, so that was awesome! Though I'm sure I looked crazy when I teared up, I just can't help it with that movie!
Ok, since this has all been about the wedding events, I should probably mention the wedding itself. It was beautiful seeing my best friend marry the man she loves. There was a perfect ceremony, and a reception, with much drinking and dancing! One really sweet part of the whole day was when my best friend was given a bible that had been passed down through generations in her family:
Ok, just to have something not wedding related, the Paleo diet is going well. I'm down 6 pounds so far. Considering the parties I've been going to, and all the cheating on the diet I've been doing at them, I think that's pretty good! I'm having fun finding recipes to cook too. I just made a meatza tonight and it was super tasty!
Hope everyone has a happy week!
What a great post! Love those goodie bags from the bachelorette party. :) Always love the movie Up, definitely can't help but tear up a little. That opening sequence just hits way too close to home! Passing that Bible down through the family, what a beautiful tradition! And yay for 6 pounds down!!! You go, girl. :DReplyDelete
