The First Weekend

Being silly at the reception
For me, the first weekend in January was spent with friends and family, and I couldn't have been happier. I spent the Friday night eating dinner with family and then drinking so much coffee it's kind of insane. Saturday, on the other hand, was one of my good friends wedding.

Best friend from work
I posted about being excited for the wedding, and not really being sure of what to wear. While I wanted to wear a LBD, little black dress, I wasn't really excited about the dress option that I had in my closet. So instead I went with a royal blue dress and nude pumps.

The wedding ceremony was really short, but you could tell that they both cared about each other so much, and their personalities shined through. The only complait that I really had was that I didn't really dress warm enough for an outside ceremony....which was completely my fault.

A friend from work was gracious enough to be my date to the wedding, and one of my best friends from work came with us as well. There weren't a lot of people that we knew at the wedding/reception so having people with me that I knew was a godsend.

All in all I had the time of my life, and it was a lot of fun.

Have you been to a wedding recently? What's your favorite part about weddings? 


  1. Good choice with the dress - I love that color.

    I went to a wedding last weekend (still need to do the recap). My favorite part? Hmmm, the food was excellent and it was open bar, so I was definitely happy with that! But I had fun getting dressed up - it's been a while!

  2. i love love weddings. i always cry no matter what

  3. ok im going to be the odd man out here and say i hate weddings! i used to work them when i was in college (i worked as bartender at a banquet hall and also served) and it became so repetitive that it drove me nuts LOL :) i think now, years later, i may enjoy them more. but there came a time where i just hated them! :) but seriously a gorgeous dress you're wearing!


Thanks for saying hello! I love hearing from all of you & reply back to everyone as quickly as I can! xoxo
