Over the summer, I've been busy preparing for a friend's wedding in my hometown. In July, I ventured home for a weekend to spend some time with her at her bridal shower (hosted by matron-of-honor Celine). Then, I came home in August for a week to celebrate with her at her bachelorette party and, the next weekend, her wedding. SO here are our shenanigans as we prepared for and eventually celebrated her wedding day with her!
This happened about a month ago when I went home the first time. There was fruit...
Games....you know that mean game where we ask her questions about her fiance when she gets them wrong, she has to shove gumballs in her mouth?
TP bridal gowns!
Ok, we played nice last time, so it was time to get naughty. Since this is a family show (namely, my family: Hi Dad! Hi Mom! Hi Brothers!), I'm choosing to edit the actual events of the night, but here is the setup.
Assorted snackage care of Lindsey....
Buffalo chicken dip:
I drove all that day to get up to my hometown, so I was in charge of drinks. I meant to make them look all pretty and then take a picture, but I forgot in all the fun. So, here are my two healthy-yet-amazing cocktail recipes...sans pictures.
8 oz mango puree
~20 oz pineapple juice (half a large bottle of juice)
325 mL Malibu coconut rum
500 mL soda water
1/2 can frozen lemonade concentrate
~750 mL vodka
4 cans diet gingerale
Once we got our food and drink on, we got ready to go out. Here is the bride before we made her look obnoxious:
And after....before the addition of the candy bra...
Lindsey and I came prepared to catch cash for our bride...and we all went out with bandanas and cowgirl wear:
Building up to the wedding:
In the days leading up to the wedding, we were busy girls. We got our nails done -
Then it was the big day! We were all up early to do our hairs and makeup!
Poor Celine! So pregnant! And so cute!

Ok, wish me luck kicking some viral butt as I hope to recover for a weekend long run. It's 1/2 marathon training time! I don't have time to be sick!
