Laura and Julian are married :0

Spent the weekend in Dillon Beach at the wedding of dear friends Laura and Julian.  I heart weddings and I heart groups of women standing in support of the bride.  Heading back to work in the morning but will be daydreaming about that beautiful ocean side ceremony all week long :).

Simple pleasures

 Our tomatoes are back!!!!

 Joe made this beautiful trellis out of bamboo from our wedding venue and we're growing bougainvillea and I love it!

 Jasmine is blooming right outside our front door!! 

Cookie taste testing!  Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal and Almond half-dips from the Prolific Oven.  Molasses Ginger and Peanut Butter from Mayfield!  YUMMMM!

my girls :)

By far, my favorite thing about this whole marriage business is all the world colliding going on!  Last weekend Jess plotted out the perfect bachelorette party - I couldn't have asked for anything more.  We stayed up late talking and playing awesome trivia games and watching my adorable fiance answer a few of the questions on video - shout out to Lindsey for that brilliant idea.  We got pampered at a sweet little spa, hung out at the beach, went out to a great dinner on State street and then painted the town red on the dance floor!  I may or may not have danced on table tops and nearly got kicked out of a couple places, intentionally :).  I also may or may not have tried to go home at 11:30pm - which is apparently unacceptable according to Whitney - as is frozen yogurt at 11:30 at night and getting excited about going to bed at that time :).  

Well, all I can say for myself is that I'm old and these days, sometimes bed sounds just as exciting as getting down on the dance floor in the wee hours of the morning - but I'm glad that Whit rallied the troops and that we made it to midnight and that I didn't turn into a pumpkin.  More than that, I just couldn't be happier that a few of my F4lies and my Friend Star got to meet and spend time with one another!  I feel so lucky to be going into this next stage of my life with a group of strong, beautiful, fun-loving and supportive women by my side!

My sister, my maid of honor and the bachelorette party planning master!

The live count down.

Spa time!  And my sweet homemade bride-to-be banner!  Thank you Mom and Jess!

Check out that pink feather boa!

Shenanigans!  Free dessert, which we appropriately ate with a knife - way to work the female privilege Laura!
