I'm here! As promised!
Saturday wrapped up all our "pre-wedding" events (minus a random BBQ my dad decided to have the Sunday of wedding week. Wah). It's nice to kind of be in the home stretch, but man I sure did have fun!
Saturday the girls set up the house while I took a brief siesta in the basement. I came upstairs and they were whipping up all my favorite foods (seriously, bruscetta, caprese spears, strawberries & pineapple which I'm not even sure they knew are my 2 favorite fruits), buffalo dip, and spinach artichoke cups. NOM. Looking at these photos I'm sad I didn't eat more, now.
Everybody started arriving around 7.
We had plenty of drinks, food, and opened gifts, which I wasn't really expecting but was so fun! I got some BEAUTIFUL stuff that I'd never treat myself to but is very fun to have! I even got the VS white silk Bride robe from Dana, which I have always secretly wanted to get ready in and I have. Wee!
Some photos, for your viewing pleasure:
Sad this is blurry, but TJ's alert posture seriously cracks me up in this one:
Some awesome floggers
Law school friends (I should probably stop calling them that...)
MOH giving a little "thanks for coming" toast :)
Opening some gifts..
These girls are too sweet.
Some of M's friends' wives/girlfriends!
Probably the last bit of alcohol I consumed, which happened to be my first and only shot. I had drank about 3/4 of a glass of wine prior, and was feeling FAR too drunk. I know this is "normal" but starting my new job coming off a 2 day hangover sounded like an awful idea.
We went to Stella's in Uptown initially, and then wanted to get our dance pants on, so we headed over to Bar Abilene, which was coincidentally the scene of my "coolest night ever".... oy. I wasn't drunk enough for a repeat, but I still think I was pretty sweet. haha.
I had such a good time though and still feel guilty that I'm putting everyone out by having them come to these events for me, buuuuut I don't think that'll ever change.
17 days until the wedding! HOLD ME.
