Oh, this weekend sure was a great one. Lots of good things happening as you can tell from the title of this post so let’s jump right in! Ps. Sorry if this post gets a little long winded or picture-heavy… you have been warned!
Friday was a busy day. I sat in our kitchen from 9:30am to about 4pm addressing our save-the-dates. It was a lot of work but I gotta say… I LOVE how they turned out. Luckily my gold ink came in the mail that morning and I went to town on those envelopes. After only a few breaks, a skipped lunch, and a cramping right hand, they were finally complete! And yes, I did them all in one sitting (mostly because we had our engagement pictures pushed back so I was in a time crunch). Luckily we’re having a small wedding so I only addressed about 60 envelopes. I can’t wait for all the guests to receive them and will be sharing them with all of you in a few weeks!!
In much more exciting news… one of my very best friends got engaged this weekend!! Logan also happens to be my MOH and I’m so excited for her and Kevin to tie the knot. I still remember when we all went to trivia and they were “set up” by one of her friends in law school… which happens to be Kevin’s now sister-in-law. We’re all just growing up so fast! She thought we were having a girls night out but after he proposed, they came at 5Church to find all of us waiting. So then we popped some champagne and celebrated all night long!
Saturday was spent mailing the save-the-dates, napping, and getting prepared for our 2nd annual friendsgiving feast. One thing that I’m very thankful for is friends that can cook… and cook well! I’m not the best in the kitchen but I can make a mean cranberry sauce haha. I know it’s super easy but oh-so delicious. We also had to get some shots of the couples… maybe these will convince them to send out Christmas cards this year!
We had quite the spread of turkey, ham, stuffing, brussel sprouts, broccoli & corn casseroles, bacon-wrapped green beans, and mashed potatoes. Complete with hot apple cider and apple crisp for dessert. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it again! We ended the night with some card games and a showing of Step Brothers. I love this time with friends and I’m glad that we have this tradition… which can hopefully take place at our new place next year!
So as you can see, there was lots of love going around this weekend. Nothing beats QT with the besties. Like I keep saying, 2016 is going to be one exciting year! I hope everyone had a great weekend as well (and hopefully y’all scored some goodies at the Sephora sale– and in case you didn’t, the sale ends tonight)!
