Alyssa & Greg’s Wedding

2012-08-04 14.23.42

Before heading to my duties, I stopped by Starbucks and bought my first ever Iced Caramel Macchiato! I wish it was upside down though cuz it was hard to get that caramel mixed evenly. I wonder if they have that …

Still can’t get over my nails. She picked such pretty colors. They’re actually colors I would never wear which surprisingly looked good on me. Never judge until you try was a definite duh here.

Ain’t she gorgeous? Because she is.

Pretty corsage with the gift Alyssa gave me around my wrist.

Getting married and all that jazz. Ahh, love her dress.

My seat with my Shiner and Alyssa & Greg’s signature cocktail drink. Candles are so romantic!

Everything was so delicious. And I grabbed a cannoli from the dessert table but didn’t take a picture. It was GOOD.

Jenny was my date but she left early. Apparently she had a headache. Oh well, I still had fun. At least she got to see how beautiful my friend was walking down the aisle and her first dance. Smile

The speeches were funny and heartfelt. I won’t lie, I got teary eyed A LOT throughout the day. We had lots of fun dancing and laughter like always. I had a really fun night.

I bumped into a couple old high school friends. One of which was Price! He was actually assigned to sit at my table! I hadn’t seen him since he graduated from high school. Actually there was probably one time we saw each other at an Orchestra Concert after we were both in college. Anyway, it was great catching up with him and knowing he’s doing so well. His sister, Maggie, was there too and she’s grown so much. So beautiful. And she seems to be doing well in college and have a boyfriend and everything. Happy people makes me happy especially when I know them.

Seriously, these pictures don’t do the wedding justice especially since I took pretty much NO pictures. It was gorgeous and Alyssa is a definite art and crafter … that’s a word right? Their photographer is by Thomas and Penelope Photography. You can see some of their pictures here:

Enjoy!

Simple Things That Make Me Happy

Sorry if you thought I was doing a giveaway. I just wanted to talk about giveaways.

Forgive me?

I’ve gone through a lot of my Google Reader. The ones that I read always haven’t been touched. Ironic, huh? Because those I read in depth and comment most of the times.

I realized I missed A LOT of giveaways. Is the beginning of August the giving month? I am now depressed that I’ve missed out on some great ones. But then again there’s one like the IPad that I didn’t enter in because I don’t feel the need to enter. I rather someone else that really wants it, wins it! So I’ve entered in none so far.

It’s always great to see old friends, now acquaintances, doing well.

One of my old high school buddies just signed with the Royals a few days ago in the MiLB. For those that don’t know, that’s the Kansas City’s Burlington Royals in Minor League Baseball. Cool, huh?

I like hearing good news and I’m so happy for him. He’s grown so much. One day he’s going to get there and I’ll be able to point at the telly and say, “I knew him in high school!” I’m pretty sure I have a few pictures with us in it from those disposable camera days and his autograph in my yearbook.

I am super excited for Sissy and Brett! We’ve been talking about dresses, venues, music, and other happy stuff. They want it simple with lots of dancing.

I wish I was a Wedding Planner … or better yet Party Planner. Seems like SO much fun. Lots of organizing and all that jazz!

Oh and lately I’ve been remodeling some things in the house. Like my bedroom. My bedroom kind of looks like an office now and I joke, “Come into my office!” when Mum walked into my room today and we talked about changing some things up in the master bedroom. Hope Dad doesn’t mind the changes that will be made soon!

I’ve been foam rolling my back whenever it aches a bit. Or wherever else when I watch telly.

It’s really been helping me. Especially with those long hours at the desk in front of the computer.

Speaking of … I’ve been watching some POP Pilates videos and I think I’ll start those first and see where they’ll take me. They aren’t too long so it seems will fit in my work schedule perfectly. Fingers crossed.

If you know any POP Pilates workouts, let me know! Smile

Happy Sunday!
