Wedding Wednesdays and Weekend Update

There has been a lot going on with this girl over the last couple of days. Some of it good, some of it not so much...things that are causing stress that I really don't need at this point in my life. I'm not going to write about that stuff. I'm sure I will at some point, because I look at this blog as a type of an outlet, but today I feel like writing about things that make me happy. That would be the weekend that just past and my wedding (of course).

This weekend update was meant to be posted on Monday, until I got a call at 8:00 at night from my sister telling me that she fell and was at the hospital with a potentially broken wrist. Four hours later we emerged from the hospital with a shinny new cast, and a blogger who was way to tired to write anything. So that's why we are late

Friday: Was one of bridesmaids birthday party. We went to Jack Astors and then to a bar. Believe it or not, I have no pictures. I have some, but none that really require posting, and I actually didn't take all that many. That's very unusual for me. Either way we had a lot of fun drinking, catching up and of course watching the Toronto Maple Leafs take home win number 4. (This post would have been a lot more fun if it had been posted Monday before they lost game number 5. Details.....)

Saturday is where I also get to talk about Wedding Wednesdays. I have a total of 6 bridesmaids all who have very different schedules and lives. 3 of these bridesmaids have been my best friends since grade 9, and I think we have the busiest lives out of all of us. From teachers college, to full time jobs, to classes and part time jobs, finding any time to get all 4 of us together is next to impossible. I am making a slide show for the wedding, and I wanted to get all of us in the same room to go through those terrible high school photo's and all come to an agreement of which ones to use. This was much harder than I thought. I had the last two weeks off of school, but finding a day that worked for all 4 of us apparently did not exist. After trying to make plans for a couple of hours and learning that no day was going to work I became frustrated and gave up. Until Friday at said bridesmaid's birthday party. There we were all together, and we all learned that we were conveniently free the very next day. Done.

I have to say that this was the best day of my weekend. Spending a few hours with these girls is always so fun. Grouping this with pizza and old photo's is hilarious. I gave each girl 5 poker chips, and called them their veto's. The rule was that they could veto any photo and had to give up one of their chips, and then I could not use the photo. Once their veto chips were gone they no longer had a say, so they were cautioned to use them carefully. I honestly thought this would become an all out war, but it actually went better then I thought, and only two veto's got used.

And for a final random thought on Wedding Wednesday: I love each and every one of these girls. They have always been there for me no matter what, despite insanely busy schedules. I know that if I need any of them, all I need to do is pick up a phone and they will make time. I also love the fact that these 3 girls
that posed with me for prom pictures, will be standing beside me for my wedding pictures 9 years later.

Sunday my mom and I had K and we made candy apples

My mom and I found this set at Costco which makes 8 caramel candy apples. It was so messy, but so much fun. I think it may have to become a fall tradition in my house.

So that was my very busy weekend!

Hope everyone else had just as awesome of one!!
