There are only so many occasions to wear a tutu when you’re not a professional ballerina, but I found another one: celebrating your recent marriage with all your friends. You probably recall the super exciting news from last week that my lady friend and I took advantage of the chance to get our marriage legalized in our (mostly) lovely state of Indiana. But since we did it at the clerk’s office on a Wednesday night, none of our friends could be there. Boo.
Lucky for us, our friends are pretty much the bomb dot com, so a bunch of them got together with us on Saturday for dinner and a sort of reception. We had 2 other friends who got gay married (or as I like to call it, “married”) last week, so it was double the celebration!
Our friend Bob even prepared a ceremony full of lots of mushy stuff, so both of us couples got to reenact our vows with our friends. Cute, right?
I included a couple non-outift photos from the night below. To my fellow Americans: enjoy your holiday weekend!

Little girls like ice cream. Big girls like bling. So I’ve got the best of both worlds! But if I had to choose one, let’s be honest…I’d choose ice cream. We have way more history.
Have a great week, everyone. I have a couple recent outfits that I really loved that I’ll share throughout the week. Follow me on Bloglovin’ or Facebook so you don’t miss out!

Remember when it was winter forever and I wouldn’t stop complaining? Well now that it’s spring, let me go ahead and complain about that too. See the thing with spring is: it doesn’t really know what season it wants to be. The forecast could say there’s a high of 65, but that doesn’t happen until 5:00pm. In the morning when I head out, it could be 45.
My solution is to go bare on the bottom and bundle up on top. That means my legs are a little too cold in the morning, and my arms are a little too hot in the afternoon. By my logic, my body’s internal thermometer averages out, so at the end of the day, I can combine the hot and the cold in my head and then reflect fondly on my general comfort level. How does this make sense? It really doesn’t. But it’s the best idea I have.
