This weekend, we played hooky from work on Friday to head to Illinois for the wedding of our two good friends Nick and Emily.

Chris and Jenny Gales, Nick and Emily at the rehearsal dinner, Alex & Kelly getting ready to go on the trolley

- Card games with good friends on a week night (We are such rebels!)
- Morning walks/workouts
- Chick-fil-a
- Mani/pedi
- Standing up with Emily and Nick on such an important day
- Cowboy boots stomping (aka dancing)
- Too much good food
- Drinks and merriment
- Beautiful fall foliage
- The cutest little town of Galena, IL
- Drunkly deciding to become a band of gypsy with a few of my favorite girls without the orange tans

- Hangovers
- Long drives
- Stinky water
- Realizing that I won't be able to talk to Nick and Emily while they are on their honeymoon :(

I'm so thankful that this will be the last weekend we have to spend away for a wedding, but this also means we will be seeing less of our friends. We had so much fun with everyone this weekend. I love and miss them so much! Until next time... so bittersweet.
