Kristina was staying at Lisas house this week, so I decided I would stay there too, It was like a slumber party alllll week long - we called Lisa the concierge because she is such a great hostess and made us breakfasts, dinners, snacks or drinks before either of us could even open our mouths and say we were hungry or thirsty!
|One of the many breakfasts we got: beans, eggs, hash browns, croissants and my favorite, hollandaise sauce!|
|Lisa, Eliza, Kristina, Shannon & Amanda|
|We might have drank a few too many of these...|
On Friday, we helped Eliza & Justin set up for the wedding. The clubhouse got all set up, and it looked awesome. My favorite were the hydrangea center pieces:
The next day, it got made official: there are now TWO Mrs. Liebregts' in town! Eliza & Justin tied the knot. Their ceremony was at the adorable Milner Chapel in Langley; it is the cutest church ever and I love how they ring the bell after the ceremony. The reception was at Amandas clubhouse & turned out really well with everyones decorating efforts! Eliza & Justin, boy do you two know how to throw a stellar party. You looked pretty good while you did it too ;) I am so happy for you guys - congratulations again!
|Min, Amanda & Krissy|
|We were trying to "show a little leg"...and then take it all back, Lemon Drop style...!! (Amanda, Shannon, Keri, Eliza, Lisa, Kristina & Min)|
|Feel the love here?!|
|I laughed so hard when I saw this picture - the look on Justins face is priceless!!|
|Have I mentioned yet that I caught the bouquet?! Yup, be expecting your wedding invitation soon!! (this is the boy who caught the garter)|
|I am a sucker for babies, and who can't be a sucker for babies on the dance floor?!|
We also went to Eliza & Justins gift opening the next day. Isn't Eliza gorgeous?!
Believe me, I could go on for pages & pages with my thoughts on weddings. It would include a LOT of exclamation marks and smiles, that's for sure! Eliza & Justin, thank you for allowing me to be included in your special day - I know that's cliche, but I feel very blessed to have you both as my friends.
This morning, it was time for Kristina to go back home to her hubby, girls & puppy. We were sad to see her go, but will definitely cherish our time that we got to spend with her here. I drove her to the airport in Bellingham (at 4 am, I might add) and held back the tears as I dropped her off. Hope to see you again soon buddy. Here is a photo that makes me think of you...our dancing shoes!!

And so I will wrap up my blog with a photo that also makes me happy:
