The first night, I went with my friends Sarah and Laura to have sushi. And drinks. And then Laura ate the biggest bite of sushi ever.
And then Sarah suggested we go buy cheap champagne and drink it.
It was a damn good suggestion.
And. Laura? Who I was staying with? Has the most AMAZING view. It's my background now, the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis.
I used to live a block from here. Most dangerous city in the US or not, it's still a damn pretty building.
And then the Cards won the world series. And that was pretty fun.
Saturday, I went to brunch with TSN and JargonScout. My favorite moment of that breakfast was when we got our food, and JargonScout looked at TSN's and mine, and said, incredulously, "How did the two of you get bacon??" (We had ordered it.)
Then I got to go to the fun wedding.
And. The flowers? So pretty.
It almost makes me want to get married again, this time in the fall.
After the wedding, I was lucky enough to go on the "party bus" bringing the wedding party around to take pictures and drink... At our first stop, the grocery store, we got the bride a Strawberry Shortcake canteen.
Which spent the rest of the day filled with Raspberry Vodka and Sprite.
(PS -That's about the prettiest dress in the world. Seriously.)
At the first picture stop, we ran into several other weddings trying to take pictures - and I took a picture of the most interesting bridesmaids I've ever seen.
After the wedding and reception, I headed over to my friend J-Wat's fabulous Hallow-Idol party, and danced, in four inch heels, until I was about to fall over from exhaustion.
Then I flew home.
As much as I complained about living in St. Louis? I really miss it.
