Fall Funs!

We had a lot of fun this fall with various things! (clicking on the pictures should let you see them in a larger size)

August is still summer, but we did have a wedding to go to! We made it to Notre Dame for a Basilica wedding. One of my all-time favorite people, John, married the perfect girl, Kathleen, one August afternoon. It was a ball! We were seated with some of his friends from Toledo I had never met but our whole table just had chemistry and got along like we'd been old friends. Great food, great booze, great dancing. What's not to love!?

Just me and the groom!

And now with our lovely spouses

In September we were able to get to Notre Dame for the Michigan game. The game itself was a heartbreaking loss. And the weather was wet! Thank goodness we had rainsuits for the game to keep us dry. We were lucky enough to join the Swanigan's tailgate. :) They had a tent AND very delicious homemade meatball sandwiches! Due to the downpour the camera did not make an appearance, but trust me, it was a fun day.

October was our biggest event - Rachel & Chuck's wedding in Las Vegas, NV. We had the bachelor & bachelorette parties on the Thursday before the wedding.

The limo tour's last stop had to be the vegas sign!

I'm not sure what the boys did all night, but I'm sure that's for the best, haha. Then we had the rehearsal on Friday & the wedding was Saturday. It was a beautiful ceremony poolside at The Mirage. T was an unofficial photographer and actually got some great shots:

He was behind the camera doing a fantastic job 99% of the night, but we did get one picture together

Nobody won any jackpots. But we managed to only lose half of the money we brought to gamble with so I really count that as a win! My dad wasn't doing to badly one day, but his winnings kept bank-rolling my mom's losses, haha. It was such a fun wedding!

Then in November we had the Notre Dame vs. Utah game and tailgate! A lot of my family traveled over for the game, my roommate from ND was there with her family and even T's sister, K & cousin, Laney made a trip out of it! Again, the weather was wet and rainy but the weekend was a real blast! We took K & Laney to the best college bar - the Backer and then to experience friday night drummer's circle. Tailgated with family & friends all day before the game, went to dinner afterward and played cards in our PJs on Saturday night. We were all pretty happy to be warm, dry & relaxed.

Me & Roommate, Kat!

Somehow this is only picture of T from that day. Nice catch, Laney! :)

And now there's snow on the ground. Christmas is right around the corner; fall came and went. But we had a blast with no plans of slowing down :)


  1. Love your hair, makeup, dress, jewelry, everything, for the wedding - you looked so pretty!
