Wedding Weekend Recap

As I mentioned on Friday, this past weekend was full of wedding activities - a bachelorette party for my almost sister-in-law, a shower for my cousin, and the wedding of two of my friends.

In what's becoming a new family tradition, the bachelorette party included a little norebang - Korean-style karaoke (we did the same for my sister's bachelorette party).  Boys were invited, which I think confused and amused my boyfriend and his friends.

I gave the bachelorette some stickers to hand out, and she put "worst dancer" on me three times.  I think she's trying to tell me something ;) 

My cousin really likes sharks, so her shower on Saturday was shark themed.  The girls planning it really went all out, there were a couple of cute things I recognized from Pinterest (including a shark fruit salad!).  We played a couple of games, including something called "He said, She said" which I'm playing above.  

On Saturday night we headed out to the suburbs for what my boyfriend said was prep for the ceremony on Sunday - it turned out the groomsmen all just wanted to get together and watch the Blackhawks together.  But since we were there so early, I got to have a little pool time.  The wedding itself was really interesting and fun.  It was a traditional Jewish ceremony which I've never experienced before.  It turns out that includes about an hour and a half straight of dancing between the ceremony and dinner.  All of the guys in our group loved it, there was lots of jumping and tossing the groom around.  

I took Monday off of work to relax and recoup, which was totally necessary.  I'm pretty psyched for the rest of this week, one of my good friends is moving to Chicago and will spend a couple of days with us before she moves into her new place.  I hope you have a great week ahead!
