What are the ingredients for a perfect weekend, you ask?

1 part birthday
1 part wedding
2 parts awesome nights out
1 part amazing fiance
10+ parts friends
1 part hurricane prep

shake + serve over a cool 60 degree weekend.

Oh yes, my friends, it was one for the books.  

first off, we got our save-the-dates
weeeeeeeeeeee!!  less than 9 months less than 9 months!!

birthday buddy at work left me special treats
(including, but not limited to a delicious PSL, balloons, and chocolatey deliciousness!!)
the kids were extra super duper nice - an added bonus for sure.

Nick showered me with special treats and was so stinken thoughtful with his best friends charm, flower delivery to work, and other loving gestures/gifts.  I'm the luckiest lady :)  he even re-created the proposal wine bottle to remind me of how special that event was!

I got a surprise delivery - flowers from my girlfriend A.Ro
(Did I mention she is currenly living in ITALY?!  And was visiting Ireland this weekend?!  And still thought of little ol' me back in the states?!  amazing.  I'm so grateful for her.)

We did a little out + about with co-workers/friends to celebrate turning 21....
...or however old I am (after 21 I decided to stop keeping tarck)
(psst - my "birthday buddy" is the lovely lady in the bottom left picture with me!)

Then recovered quickly and brought our A game to 
a fabulous wedding celebrating Mr. & Mrs. Hall
--I even got a dance with one of the little ushers--
c o n g r a t u l a t i o n s you crazy lovebirds :)

...and what better way to end the weekend then to prep for a hurricane and receive this beauty in a text message?!  Seriously, gorgeous.  And she's a mouse.  hee hee (inside joke!)

so yes, it. was. awesome.
a couple other highlights:
-Nick actually got to say "suit up" and did [from how I met your mother*]
-We double dutched on the dancefloor at the wedding 
-We have school cancelled today in light of hurricane Sandy
-We will be keeping it classy by welcoming Sandy with breakfast Bloody Marys 
-No shave November is rapidly approaching

...Yep, awesome.

How was YOUR weekend??
If you're reading this, I'll assume that Sandy didn't grace your presence, right??

Stay dry, my friends!
