So I really haven't been able to update the blog since school started last week, grad school, including my internship (I'm interning with my principal and need to complete 240 hours by May 1st), and having a student teacher! It's been a crazy last two weeks to say the least, but I figured I'd tell you Elyse and Scott's wedding! I thought I'd originally reuse the bridesmaid dress from Jess and Ben's wedding, but due to my healing and unsightly toe, I decided to wear a maxi dress to cover the eye sore. Luckily my mom scored me a sweet brown beady one that did just the trick - covered the toe and let me wear comfy shoes - which I totally needed for all of the dancing that would be done! Meredith and Ben came in for the big event and stayed at my parent's condo in the city. After some pre-wedding bellinitini's (made by Caroline) we headed to the beautiful ceremony. Auntie Leslie did an amazing job and it truly was beautiful... especially since I can remember the night Elyse came home proclaiming that she liked Scott... Oh Bo James! The reception was awesome. Great food, great drinks, and fabulous band which meant tons of dancing! One of the singers even came out on the dance floor and let me sing with her... my secret passion. However, Mike did tell Matt Tefka (who gave an amazing speech and rapped) to watch out because I was going to kidnap one of their twins (they are so cute - but I would NEVER). After the wedding we headed over to Dick's Last Resort for a night cap and hair extension try on... thanks Mere! I got to feel what it was like to be a brunette... or at least half of one. We ended up back at the condo where I passed out with Mere on the couch... just like our old college days. It was a super fun weekend hanging out with all of the Iowa clan and the Tefkas and Radfords - gotta love a good wedding! I also think the Swansons need to move to the Chicagoland area so we can enjoy their company more!!! I LOVE YOU MERE!!!
