The Most Epic Blate of All

Morning, ladies! Forgive me if I'm a bit all over the place today, but I'm recovering from the epic weekend that was my BOFF's wedding. It was truly an amazing time and I am so thankful I was there to be her right hand lady and to witness such a weekend of love.

This wedding weekend I...

:: Woke up at 4am to make our 655am flight.

:: Saw beautiful skies on our easy, empty flight.

:: Landed, checked in to the hotel and finally got to hug my BOFF.

:: Ate lunch with this guy.

:: Got my nails done with the BOFF and picked matching shades, accidentally.

:: Had my first DRY BAR EXPERIENCE with the bride to be.

:: Tried not to flip out, after the stylist butchered my hair. Imagine Shirley Temple curls with Dolly Parton volume, starting at the crown of my head. #notagoodlook

:: Wished I took a picture, but we were too busy laughig and trying to fix the mess. Le Husband said " the 80s called, they want your hair back"! #whydidntitakeapicture?

:: Met my BOFF's friends and family and decided they are all so wonderful!

:: Ate a delicious meal at the rehearsal dinner. With a side of too much laughing at the best table, ever! #twerkit

:: Went to bed early, to get lots of sleep.

:: Woke up, packed my day bag and headed to the BOFF's house, for the fun getting ready festivities.

:: Celebrated the day with champs!

:: Loved our beautiful earrings, the bride so kindly gifted us! #firstkendrascott

:: Loved how my hair turned out. Hooray for fabulous hair stylists! #makesupforfriday

:: Fell in love with my makeup, too! The makeup artist was incredible and made us all feel beautiful and glamorous. If you're in Ft. Worth and need a makeup artist, you need to get in touch with Jen!

:: Witnessed many a beautiful moment with my beautiful BOFF! The getting ready process was so much fun and filled with so much love and happiness! Operation learn to sew starts this week!

:: Made new friends with all the amazing women in Lynn's life. She has some incredible friends and I'm so glad I was finally able to meet them!

:: Tried to skype Jessica but technology failed :(! Lynn was able to speak with her and I sent her many a picture, too! It was wonderful sharing those moments with our sweet friend!

:: Ran into a 5K when trying to take pictures downtown.

:: Tried to use my womanly ways with the valet to make parking easier. 

:: Failed, miserably. #nexttimedonttripinheels.

:: Took pictures, then relaxed as we waiting for the ceremony!

:: Watched my beautiful BOFF marry the man of her dreams, in an incredible ceremony!

:: Moments before the ceremony began.

:: CELEBRATED THE NEWLY MARRIED COUPLE! #winterwedding

:: Left my nice camera at Lynn's home, so had to use my iPhone for pictures! #boo

:: Watched Ohio State crush it, during dinner. #championshipsaturday

:: Gave a toast, without crying, cheersing the beautiful couple! #theylovedthechampagneflutesJess

:: Dressed up, snazzy with the man. #stud

:: Boogied down on the dance floor!

:: Finally met Neely! #bloggermeetup

:: Ate delicious food and amazing cake! #yummycakeisthebest

:: Drank lots of wine and water, too! 

:: Sent the happily married couple off with bubbles and love! 

:: Continued the party, with the bride and groom's family.

:: Hit a wine bar, right as it closed. #oops

:: Moved on to another bar and actually found Redbreast Whiskey! #thisneverhappens #hooray #twowhiskeysneat

:: Stayed out later than planned, so we raided the hotel snack shop like we were college kids. 

:: Photographed the aftermath of an amazing evening. #bobbypinsfordays #plusbenandjerrys

:: Slept in, hallelujah!

:: Packed up the room and went to brunch with the family, Sunday morning! #belliniandwafflesforthewin

:: Was sad to say goodbye to my fabulous BOFF!

:: Flew home and passed out! 

This weekend was better than I could have anticipated and I am so thankful to have Lynn in my life. Watching a best friend get married is one of the best feelings and I was so honored to be able to participate in the ceremony! It truly was the most epic blates, ever!

How was your weekend?

I'm also linking up with my dear friend, Jessica, for her lil bit of cheer throughout the month! I'm double dipping, as Jess says, by calling memories from this weekend my bit of cheer. I'll have more Christmas cheer, next time!

Everyone looked gorgeous at the wedding! I usually love Drybar but it all depends on the stylist - hope you have a better experience next time!

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

Gorgeous wedding and yayyyyy for your first DryBar experience! I still can't believe they haven't come to Florida yet. Still just a bunch of other "wanna-bes" popping up around here :-P

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

*Sorry it wasn't the best! Next time ask them to re-do it for you ;-)

Brooke said...

What an amazing wedding weekend!! I've never tried a dry bar before, but I generally have anxiety when dealing with my hair. One too many bad experiences. At least there are no scissors involved in a dry bar! Glad your hair turned out amazing on the day that counted! You looked beautiful :)

Courtney B said...

Perfect weekend!! I'm SO glad you had so much fun!! Seriously sounds like it was perfect- except for the hair fail on Friday. I don't know why I feel the need to apologize for hairstylists mistakes, but I do, I'M SORRY! Ha!
You looked beautiful on wedding day! What amazing memories you will cherish forever!

Amy said...

Looks like you had a wonderful, wonderful weekend! Isn't blogging great?! The people you meet & the friendships that are made. It is amazing to me!

Thanks for sharing your Christmas cheer!

Katie Elizabeth said...

This is amazing!! Definitely the best blate ever :) So cool that you were able to be there with her on her big day - you both looked absolutely beautiful!

Heather (My Little HEA) said...

OMG this was a jam packed weekend but it looks like you had soooo much fun. I am out of the loop with what a BOFF is #clueless but what does the O stand for. Looked like the wedding stylist ?should also be working at the dry bar! Stinks about your hair and even without the pic you gave us a great description!

Brianne said...

That sucks that you had a bad dry bar experience. I've only gone once but if I could afford it I'd go all the time! You looked amazing!

Mree said...

Jessica said...

First of all, I am super sad that there are no pictures of the Shirley Temple curls, lol:)

Second of all, what an absolutely GORGEOUS weekend! So glad that you were there to support Lynn on her big day. It looks like you guys had the very best time and I am so sad I couldn't be there. Hate that the stupid technology failed us and foiled our Skype plan, but so glad I got to chat with sweet Lynn right before she walked down the aisle!:) And am so happy to hear that the flutes worked out perfectly!:)

Yay for beautiful weddings! And yay for bloggy besties!
