Ariel and I started our day with a trip to a get our hair styled, which was a lovely and much-needed treat for my hair that can be bushy sometimes. As wedding fun is getting into full swing, today was my debut with Ariel’s friends and future family, and I wanted to look my best. Turns out I could do a pretty good job on my hair by myself if I had the patience to straighten my hair in very, very tiny strands...but it was nice to sit back and let someone else do it for me today.
After we finished with our hair, we ran back to Ariel’s house to change, grabbed some coffee, and dashed off to meet Ariel’s parents. We fixed her mom’s hair before going on a grand cab adventure through city traffic. Let me just say Oh. My. Gosh. Baton Rouge traffic has nothing on the madness up here, and while I know I’d break any promises I made to never complain about Baton Rouge traffic again, I’m going to make an effort to be grateful that Baton Rouge traffic isn’t close to what traffic is elsewhere.
The shower itself was absolutely fabulous! The decorations, food, and beverages were on point, and the location was amazing. There was a great party playlist, and we had fun playing games and learning about Ariel and Kevin. The guests were great, too! It’s always good when the people you know are friends with other great people who are fun to be around. We stayed well past the scheduled end time hanging out and socializing, and everyone agreed that it was a great event. (Phew!)
After we dropped Ariel’s parents off again and made it back to her apartment, we were ready to change clothes and relax for a bit. Then, somehow, we were hungry enough for dinner around 8:00, so we ordered Thai food and walked to pick it up. Now, we are watching The Crimes of Grindelwald, and I must say that this is a pretty awesome way to spend a Saturday night.
Something that made today great: Spending the whole day with my best friend!
Time I woke up: 7:45 am
