My Freaking Cold Wedding Weekend

This was my big, back home weekend that I've been looking forward to! One of my close girlfriends from college got married and while the wedding was not my thing, the party afterward was awesome!

BTW, it was sooooo freaking cold in Kansas that it made me long for the “chilly” days we get in Florida, lol.

I had lunch with a friend at one of my favorite restaurants in El Do. Fancy Chinese dining for affordable prices, especially at lunch! I hadn’t been there in a couple years, because the last time I went back they were closed due to a fire or something...which means it was brand spanking new inside! Enjoy this cute little confused panda on their menu.

After lunch I stopped by my favorite LSS (Local Scrapbook Store) in a neighboring town. Instead of hanging out at Starbucks to use their wifi, I was able to enjoy my Sonic drink and get some stuff done on the interwebs...all while reminiscing and catching up with some friends!

Then I headed to meet my friend Emily for some shopping and more eating. I ate A LOT on my trip back home...there are just so many places I don’t have or get to eat at in Florida!

We woke up to a nice day, and had a few errands to run. I finally was able to get my eyebrows done at Ulta. I had forgotten to go on my Birthday when they would have been free, but I didn’t want to miss out on having my eyebrows shaped. I think they did a really nice job.

Then we headed out for the wedding, amidst flurries! But first, we had a little stop to make...

That’s right, we stopped in so I could see my grandparents. They were so surprised! Not just by me showing up, but when I turned my phone around to snap this shot they were quite giddy. Too cute and I loved getting to see them even for just a little bit.

The wedding was long. Way too many things and I felt really bad for the girls in heels that had to stand super still for about 45 minutes. Seriously, weddings don’t need to be that long, right? Now, the after party...we stayed for about three hours and it didn’t feel like we’d even been there one hour. Amazing! So much to do to keep the guests occupied. They had a photo booth, dancing, even a little line dancing! Yeehaw!

We had a little Star Wars action going on with the groom and a buddy! BTW, the groom’s cake was Star Wars themed as well. Too funny, really.

We woke up to about FOUR freaking inches of snow. *pouts*

It "snowed in" with drifts around my aunt’s house since they live on a dirt road that isn’t a priority plow, so I wasn’t able to get back to her house to get my big suitcase and I stayed an extra night with my friend that lives in the city. I’ll have to meet my aunt on my way to the airport Monday so I can get the rest of my my glasses. Important stuff I tell you!

Since we were kinda snowed in, we were able to watch some movies and catch a little March Madness. Totally watched KU make a comeback in the second half and come out with a win! Definitely made the house I was staying with happy and it ended up being a great game. Did your team win?

All in all, it was a great weekend and even though I am not a fan of the cold or weddings, I know I’ll miss everybody when I get home.

What about you? Did you catch up on some March Madness? Did you end up with snow like we did or were you enjoying some Spring weather?
