I love me some big hair . . .
So I jumped at Matt and Mariah’s wedding as a chance to get me an enormous beehive. I have what I like to refer to as a Secret Shit-Ton of Hair, which can get a little scary when it’s under construction…
I’m like Wilma! Minus the pterodactyls! A shit ton of eye makeup and our fabulous dresses from Vivian’s of Â Holloway’s completed our look:
The wedding itself was fabulous, and it was so nice seeing all of our friends all dolled up:
The wedding itself was lovely, despite the inclement weather. The ceremony involved many umbrellas and a trumpet surprise:
It’s not easy to smuggle in a baby AND a trumpet, as Mrs. Whisky can tell you from experience!
The most amazing part of the wedding (besides seeing my friends get hitched, of course) was the dessert. Instead of getting a weary old wedding cake that goes dry and nobody eats, Matt and Mariah had Top Pot donuts for their cake. I nearly passed out when I saw them. And I’m not the only one, as everyone started swiping donuts WAY before dessert was supposed to be served. In our defense (as my table may have swiped a few), it was the old ladies who started it! Greedy old ladies! Here’s some XXX-donut action . . .
They were soooooooooooooooo good. I am drooling just writing this, like one of Pavlov’s dogs. If you’re in Seattle anytime soon, get thyself to Top Pot!
All in all it was an absolutely stunning wedding, and remarkable in how many people came from all over the world to see each other. Here’s a final group pic of all of our Edinburgh Crew: These are all people who met at the University of Edinburgh and came together that night for Matt and Mariah’s wedding. May they all know great joy, for I sure do get great joy out of knowing each of them:
Bright and early the next morning, the Whisky family picked me up and we all trudged off to the airport. It was a long day of travel (Seattle is so far away!), but considering I had to fly through O’Hare it went pretty smoothly.
Monday, however, came all too soon, and I went off to my first day of orientation. It was really good. Seton Hill is very different from my former university, and I think it’s going to be a great fit.
In other news, I only just built my last 3 bookcases, so I’ve yet to do any book unpacking. Which means that for the two of you who are waiting for your prize packs, they’ve not been unearthed, yet. That said, I should tackle the final few boxes soon, and as soon as I have the prizes un-boxed I will re-box them and send them out to you.
On that note, I’m going to bed! It was a crazily long day at orientation today and I am BEAT. But I’ll see you soon . . .
And one more Huzzah for Matt and Mariah! HUZZAH! 😉
