This past weekend was epic. It was the kind of weekend you live for. It had been so long since we’ve had a weekend like this.
Pat and Aimee flew out for the Banquet again this year and Pat decided that this flight would be the perfect time to pop a certain question to Aimee. We all had dinner at Dario & Ginas to celebrate. Saturday us girls went and got our nails done, then we all came over to the house so everyone could see the progress. Saturday night was the Banquet and Sunday we headed over to Dario & Ginas for Mimosas, Scotch and Cigars. It was a weekend of celebrations.
I felt like I was in the 50s while I was getting ready. Too bad all the curls in my hair fell out in a way that made my hair look like crap and I ended up having to straighten it. FAIL. I can never ever curl my hair and make it look good. I don’t know why I even bother.
Also, noet the number of freckles on my arm.
Because it took me so long to get my hair done Chad spent extra time on his, and it didn’t go noticed.
A friend of a friend introduced me to drinking Gin and Ginger. I am hooked. Damn hipsters and their good drinks.
Ryan was very impress with Chads hair, and coming from Ryan, the hair master, that is a big compliment.
I bought myself a new dress. I was pretty excited about it because it was stretchy which meant I could eat all the food at the banquet this year. Everything was so good. They even had the brilliant idea of serving a late night snack of pizza. GENIUS.
The Mafia showed up after dinner for some scotch and cigars.
Who are these old guys.
You know you’ve had a good evening when you end up with wine lips. I am very yellow and Chad is very red.
Dear, we are not at the Cambie. You are not allowed to do that here.
Everyone went home and we stuck around to do some drunk dancing. Jeremy almost got naked. Eddie the DJ, who was also the DJ at our wedding, surprised us by playing our wedding song. I balled my eyes out. Our wedding song is so obscure that I have never heard it played anywhere. It was a very sweet moment.
I took the ‘pianta’ from the table home since we have no living things in the house. Chad dropped it spilling dirt all over my newly cleaned car. Not impressed!
Sunday morning preparations.
I was also not impressed when I found out how much these bad boys cost.
We sat on the stoop while Dario & Gina drove Pat & Aimee to the airport.
What an adorable family portrait! I just realized Dario has a mustache in this photo. Even better!
Many congrats go out to Pat and Aimee. I am so excited for their wedding and even more excited to be a part of their special day. This is our family, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
