This previous weekend used to be full of festive amusing. The Pilot used to be house (wahoo!) and we took benefit of the time in combination. Saturday, we were given to peer two of our buddies get married at the beautiful Hacienda del Sol. (This is the place we had our child bathe for Liv!) We very hardly make it available in the market although it’s no longer a long way in any respect. It used to be the highest venue for a marriage and the climate used to be a dream. It used to be 72 (heaven-ty two) levels in the courtyard!
(The get dressed used to be a Rent the Runway win! I’m at all times a little bit worried as a result of fashion designer clothes at all times run very small and really lengthy. I generally have to move up a measurement or two once I hire from RTR and keep away from lengthy clothes as a result of they drag on the flooring. I’m generally a S or XS, and ended up getting the petite small on this Bronx and Banco Moulin Rouge robe. It are compatible completely and I were given numerous compliments on it. The pictures don’t do it justice, however the embroidery and sequins on the skirt actually added to the high quality and design of the robe. If you could have any particular occasions arising, you’ll use my hyperlink to get $30 off your first Rent the Runway apartment.)
All of the main points of the marriage ceremony have been completely stunning.
The cake used to be embellished by way of their nieces (!)

the rite used to be personalised and heartfelt,
the meals used to be implausible,
however my very favourite second used to be the reside match painter. When we walked into the reception room, we spotted that he used to be portray the surroundings onto a big canvas. The DJ presented the new couple to the room, everybody cheered, and the bride and groom started their first dance. As they have been dancing, the artist began portray THEM into the scene he’d began on the canvas. Cue all the dinosaur tears. SO stunning, proper?
What a fantastic option to immortalize the day. They’ll have this putting of their area any further, and the considered that simply fills me with all the heat fuzzies.
In between the sentimental moments, the marriage ceremony used to be chock stuffed with fighter pilot shenanigans.

I’ve discussed Winterhaven a couple of occasions on the weblog. It’s a historical group in Tucson and a part of their HOA contract calls for elaborate mild shows. They’re backed by way of Tucson Electric Power – most probably in order that they’re no longer hit with monumental energy expenses the month of December – and strolling round Winterhaven right through the vacations is one in every of my very favourite issues. The ladies have been SO onto it this yr. We ended up walking round for roughly two hours!
My favourite area used to be the Christmas Story area, entire with a slide, and this monumental snowman.
The remainder of the week, I’ve been wrapping presents (I simply typed “wrapping gifs” – I reside on-line an excessive amount of lol), looking to persuade P to attend till Christmas prior to ripping ALL of them open, and making plans Liv’s magnificence vacation birthday celebration. We’re making snowman slime, having a dance station (Just Dance on YouTube on the projector), cookie adorning, BINGO, and pin the center on the Grinch.
