Hey y’all and TGIT!! Truly, though, I’m feeling FANTASTIC on this Thursday. It may have something to do with the unplanned extra hour and a half I got this morning when I decided that the great dreams I was having were more important than the 7 am BodyAttack class…. No matter what is causing it, I hope this feeling doesn’t fade anytime soon!!
Lunch today also may have something to do with my great mood, because it was a perfect one. One of my coworkers brought a little treat for everyone in the office and put it on the “community microwave” which is usually where we put snacks that we made or leftover goodies to “share with the rest of the class.” Today’s was MUCH better than cupcakes.
They completed the salad for the ages:
This little taco salad was very similar to last night’s taco salad but tasted much more delicious. I think it had something to do with the freshest little tomatoes and the fact that there wasn’t 1/4 lb of SUPER STRONG spicy turkey (which I replaced with a 1/3 can of Bush’s reduced sodium blackbeans) overpowering everything. I really tasted the avocado, and it gave the salad a creamy counterpart to the crisp peppers.
Anyway, here’s the fourth installment of the wedding weekend (sorry if you’re getting sick of this, but not too sorry because it’s been a blast to write and great for my mom to get a play by play of the wedding!!)
In case you missed it, here are the other parts:
- The 61 Hour Wedding Whirlwind Weekend: The Rehearsal
- The 61 Hour Wedding Whirlwind Weekend: Rehearsal Dinner at Monterey Bay Fish Grotto
- The 61 Hour Wedding Whirlwind Weekend: Primping
After we finished getting all dolled up, we rushed Cait’s room to observe her (much more laborious) preparation.
Cait’s dress was a total looker, fitting for such a flawless bride!
The bow on the back was difficult, apparently, but we had a bridesmaid for that! Juli, one of Cait’s old roomies, was ready to step up.
There were many many pictures snapped of the bridesmaids, of Cait, of the moms, of the photographer:
Then, we hopped onto a trolley to head up to Mt. Washington for THE BIG REVEAL!! In case you’re unaware, the big reveal is the first look that the groom gets at his bride. Especially important when you’re taking pictures before the ceremony!
It was incredibly hot and sweaty during the picture taking, but we had a good time in the trolley thanks to our dear friend: beer.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get many pictures from the ceremony considering how annoying it would’ve been having a Maid of Honor snapping shots inside the chapel. But thankfully, my handsome date snapped a few.
The ceremony was beautiful, the vows… inspiring. And we all hooted and hollered as they walked off into a sea of bubbles!
Join us tomorrow for our final installment: the afterparrrrrrrtyyyyyy! (also known as the reception).
