Mel's Wedding

This weekend was super fun! I had a rough week so a fun filled weekend was definitely needed. Friday night I met Kate and Steve and some other friends for dinner/drinks, and then we saw My Bloody Valentine 3D. It was hilarious. Not scary. Really stupid, and enjoyable. Patrick joined us for the movie and he thought it was pretty hilarious as well.

Saturday Patrick and I drove to Dallas for Melissa Wallace, now Gastineau's wedding! We checked into our hotel, a lovely Omni, across the street from Elaine's apartment, and also where her wedding reception was at. We got ready and then Elaine and Brian picked us up and we headed to Royal Lane Baptist Church for the wedding ceremony. Mel looked beautiful! She wore a mermaid style dress and almost got away with wearing her cowboy boots. They both looked so happy as they exchanged their vows. The reception followed at the "Old Red Courthouse". It was uh-mazing. They rented out the whole buidling. The reception was on the fourth floor. There was wine and beer and snacks while we waited for the bride and groom to show up. Since it was at a courthouse, and being lawyers, Elaine and I had to get a pic in the courtroom -

We moved into the reception area and had a yummy dinner and continued the night with lots of dancing and catching up with old friends. I got to introduce Patrick to a lot of friends from college, which was great. I got to see all my friends from the 6th floor back in freshman year at Baylor and spend some quality time with some Zetas. A wonderful wedding!

Patrick and I drove back to Houston today. He's currently working hard at his apt on some work projects (he's amazing and came with me to the wedding even though he is super busy at work) and I'm doing some work of my own and laundry and other fun chores that I love (ha if you know me you know that's not true, not at all).

This week is going to be super busy. For some reason January 30 is the deadline for 4 different projects at work. AWESOME. Hopefully it'll go better than last week. I'm finding my feet a bit more and trying to maintain confidence in my work in the midst of seemingly unconfident behavior.

Much Love.

Yay: Seeing friends this past weekend.

Dang: Patrick having to work a TON this coming week, poor guy.
