Hi friends. How was your weekend? Relaxing? Calm? Did you get to sleep in? Laze about? Lounge on your couch in your pjs? Lucky you! While you were doing that, I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off on what might have been the busiest weekend of my life - a rehearsal dinner, two weddings, a bridal shower, and a birthday party. WHEW!
Don't get me wrong - I am not complaining one bit. I had the best time all weekend celebrating with the people I love. But now, on Monday? I am paying for it... I am WIPED OUT!
Let's do a little photo recap, shall we?
First up were the festivities for my cousin Robin, who married her boyfriend of EIGHT YEARS, Jason, this weekend - #finally! Here's a Silverwoman selfie before the rehearsal shindig:
And me and Beans with the beautiful bride-to-be... I am wearing a gorgeous LOFT dress I got on crazy sale while I was in Houston. Go get yourself one!
The party continued Saturday night in Marina Del Rey for the wedding itself! Here are my aunt and uncle walking her down the aisle... spoiler alert: I cried. (Also, how gorgeous is my aunt's MOB dress?! WANT.
The Three Musketeers enjoying cocktail hour :)
(Thanks to those of you who asked where my dress is from - I actually got it last year from Forever 21 of all places! But the good news is, Victoria's Secret is currently carrying something very similar and Bailey happens to be wearing it in black (yes we both wore pleated maxi dresses. Not cool) and it's adorable!)
With our best family friends - Nina, where are your sunglasses?!
Inside the party - a University of Miami-themed tequila ice luge. Didn't hate it.
And on the way out... there was a hot dog vendor. Rami partook of hot dog deliciousness, I sadly did not.
The next morning, I was up bright and early to put the heels back on, this time for my dear friend Ashley's bridal shower! (Remember her from the San Francisco bachelorette a few weeks ago?) It was a lovely brunch and I am seriously counting down the days to her wedding... it's gonna be epic. I wore this awesome ASOS polka dotted peplum top and got a lot of compliments - the little dots are raised velvet so it's nice and fancy :) My new favorite top!
Shortly thereafter, Rami picked me up early from the party so we could make an appearance at a very special birthday party... Baby Ari turned 1 and his parents threw him a party to celebrate!!
He went for that cake with gusto. Want to know what else he went for? MY ARMS, without me begging or pleading, and my ovaries proceeded to explore. I adore him. Could he BE any cuter?!
Oh don't worry - weekend's not over yet. After the birthday party we ran home to get all dolled up for wedding #2! This celebration was in honor of my dear family friend Molly, who married her beloved Ilan in a seriously beautiful and touching Orthodox ceremony.
Are these two not the CUTEST little marrieds you ever did see?!
Me and my boo. Blurry but cute!
Towards the end of the night... getting crazy. There was Israeli dancing going on, y'all! How could I not!?
And that was our weekend. WHEW. I'm exhausted just reading it :) I made Ram promise to make me put my computer away and go to bed at 10:30 tonight so I can get some sleep. We shall see if that happens!
