This morning, I got up a little earlier than usual and ran and had coffee with a friend who’s moving this week. I feel like I’ve already had a whole other day before work, and I kind of love it. Despite the moving thing.
This weekend my boss/friend/favorite person Jordan got married, and it was a beautiful day and weekend. I think I’ve mentioned once or twice that I love my job? I love what I do: communicating with people all day about why working out and living a healthy lifestyle is awesome. I love my company: a company that believes in bringing the best fitness to as many people as we can. But we all know what makes or breaks a job is the people you work with day in and day out, and I work with such smart, funny and caring people that 99% of the time, I truly enjoy going to work. A huge part of that is because I hit the manager lottery: Jordan is one of the nicest people I’ve met, and is so awesome as both a manager and a friend. So I was so honored that she invited all of us to share in her big day.
I started my day at DreamDry. Grace has been doing these awesome hair tutorials with a stylist from DreamDry, and while I will never be able to follow any of her tutorials, I can certainly book her stylist, Jay. And he is amazing. I walked out of the salon very, very happy AND the blowout lasted until I washed my hair this morning, so I consider it well worth it.
My coworker Amanda and I split an Uber out to the venue in Brooklyn, and made it there with plenty of time to spare. Whew. (I was really nervous about traffic.)
Earlier in the week, Jordan had been concerned about possible rain since the ceremony was outside, but she got incredibly lucky with the weather.
Doesn’t she look gorgeous?! We ended up sitting in the last row purely by accident, but it was awesome because we were the first ones to see her when she walked in. I obviously cried no less than three times during the ceremony. I cannot attend a wedding without bringing all of my eye makeup to immediately redo in the bathroom following the ceremony.
Beach waves, long floral dress — beach or Brooklyn? Clearly we know where my heart and head are. I got this dress at the Lilly sample sale several years ago for somewhere between $30-40 when it retailed for $300+. I’ve only worn this dress twice, but it’s made me really happy both times. I also knew there was no way in hell anyone else would be wearing the same dress!
Here’s to love and happiness.
Sappy Theodora is still around. Tell me about your favorite wedding!
