I had such a fun weekend! I went home to California for my best friend's wedding. It was so much fun being with her on her special day and getting to spend time with my family, especially my mom :) I got there on Friday and ran errands with my mom all afternoon, and we went to my favorite place...Wahoo's..duh. That night we hung out and watched some episodes on the DVR. I don't have cable in my apartment out here so I had to catch up on some things...! Saturday morning was the sealing at 10 AM. It was awesome for me because I got to go inside the room where Justin and I were married just 6 weeks before :) It brought back a flood of memories and feelings. I loved hearing the words of the ceremony again because on my wedding day my brain was all over the place and I didn't quite take it all in, so it was nice to sit, relax and take in all of the words and promises that are given within the sealing. I have known Brittney and Jesse from the beginning and it was really special to watch them be sealed, as well! After the temple, we took some pictures and then I raced home so I could make it home for Brittni Lumsden's bridal shower. It was soooo good to see everyone and just be with family. After that we went home and I did Caroline's hair for Prom. She is such a diva! Her and her friends looked gorgeous, and she says she had a lot of fun!
The reception that night was in Temecula in someone's backyard. It was absolutely beautiful. Honestly, it blew me away when I saw everything. There was food, dancing and lots of friends. It was so much fun to let loose and just be with my friends. All the while, I was missing Justin very much. We haven't spent more than a couple hours apart since the wedding so it was sad but we were both really busy and having fun so it was all good! Sunday was my Grandpa's 70th birthday party, so we went to that! Happy Birthday Gpa. Oh! I got to see one of my best friend's Allie on Sunday night, miss her so much. The weekend was amazing and now i'm sitting in my lonely desk, in my lonely office back in Arkansas. One more thing! As we were flying in to Arkansas today I couldn't help but notice how beautiful this place is! You would never know it but seriously this place is a little gem. It's extremely green with gorgeous mountains. It really is such a fun place to live for the summer.I can't help but feel really blessed today. Well, now that you know what I did this entire weekend, I will go! Until next time. :)
