Sooo much fabulocity in one weekend (fabulocity is a word right?), leaving me feeling incredibly marvelous ❤
Friday. Cher. AHHH, guys my lifelong dream has come true, and yes that is such a serious statement. I have loved her music since I heard my mom working out to it when I was a kid, and when I heard she was coming to Milwaukee, I immediately bought tickets. I brought my step-mom with me, as these were her birthday gift last November 🙂
Mexican for dinner, followed by flourless chocolate cake.
The one. The only.
Seriously one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to. This woman KNOWS she’s an icon, and KNOWS how fierce she is. Every single song had a costume and hair change, and she rocked them all. She even sang “I Got You Babe” with a piped in video of Sonny. THAT was so moving.
Singing “Believe,” in a remix version. Just incredible.
Obligatory cheesin’ selfie.
Saturday. My mom and I ran some errands and picked up some awesome tomato plants for her garden, and a really awesome wooden wind chime for my new apartment! I so love the relaxing sounds of it blowing in the wind…ahhh.
The main focus of this weekend was the special, special wedding of my dearest and oldest friend Stefani to her man Michael. The ceremony was beautiful, and when Stefani walked down that aisle with her dad… I can’t even tell you how big the smile was on her face. Michael had me in tears at his reaction too ❤
The beautiful couple.
After the ceremony, we all went to the hotel for her reception, and I was able to catch up with some childhood friends during their social hour! Stefani and Michael took this time as their “receiving line” and we all were able to catch up and hug her and tell her how GORGEOUS her dress is.
Oh hayyy Kaylin.
Their first dance as Mr. and Mrs. Prada!
Obviously needed a Prada sandwich moment.
I am a giant. And Stefani is such a gorgeous bride. Seriously glowing.
I had an incredible time celebrating their life together and journey of love that is to come. Love you guys so much! ❤
Sunday. Obbbviously after recovering from a night filled with dancing and amazing gourmet cupcakes (kudos to your aunt, Stefani!), I stubbornly woke up Sunday morning, full knowing that I needed to get a long-run in before my half marathon next Saturday.
Eight killer miles later. I was spent.
I couldn’t have asked for a weekend filled with more dancing, more laughing til my sides hurt, and spilling over with love love love.
Did I mention how much I love life? ❤ 🙂
