This trip did not start out great for me! I had to wake up at 4 am to catch my 7 am flight. Most of you know I am not a morning person by any means so this did not make me happy! Well we made our flight and found out that our straight thru flight was now changed and going to be making a lay over in Atlanta for an hour. AAAHHHHH I hate lay overs especially when I have to fly over my destination to make it there! Well we were delayed in SLC for 45 min b/c of some "technical difficulties" a excuse me what does this mean? Any who ... We made it to Atlanta with time to eat lunch only to find out our flight there was delayed an hour and a half .... AAAAHHHHHHH seriously ... I have now been up since 4 am UT time and find out my flight was supposed to land in St. Louis by 2:40 pm (just enough time to take a nap before the Bachelorette/Bachelor parties) and we now are not landing until 4ish. This super sucks b/c Jeremy still has to head to Men's Warehouse to get his tux! Well we finally made it to our hotel at 6 pm Thursday night and had just enough time to shower and get ready before the festivities! I have to say I was a trooper, I didn't complain once I just ate some much needed dinner and then went out with the girls (many of whom I didn't know mind you). I finally had Josh's aunt take me to my hotel around midnight b/c I needed some sleep!
Friday started off slow. The boys went out to celebrate with Josh and Jeremy didn't stroll into our room until 5 am .. WTF???? So he slept until about noon and by this point we had just enough time to get ready and get a quick lunch before driving to Danielle's parents house in Illinois for the rehearsal dinner. This was a fun night. Great food and we got to meet all of Josh's St. Louis friends and Danielle's family and friends!
Saturday we hit up the Budweiser brewery. We never miss this stop when we are in St. Louis b/c they give out free beer at the end! We had a great time with just us SLC friends and Josh it was a nice day right before the big "I DO". We then travelled back to Illinois to Hidden Lake Winery where Josh and Danielle exchanged their vows and had a HUGE celebration! It was such a fun night and I loved every minute of it!
Sunday we just relaxed and slept and got on our flight to come home. It was a fast and busy weekend but we are so glad we could be there to celebrate with the happy couple!
Congrats Danni and Josh we love you. Hope you're having fun in Mexico I am very jealous!
