friday fun

this past friday started off a very busy weekend for me. my dear friend from college got married on saturday, and i was asked to help her celebrate in her special day. of course i was honored considering we go way back from being in the same pledge class in the best damn sorority at UAB, to many spring breaks together, to numerous nights at the music hall, and everything inbetween. we'd been through it all, and eventhough we don't get to hang out as much as we use to, that special bond is still there. friday at noon, we all got together for our bridesmaid's luncheon. the food was delicious, and the company was at the luncheon, the bride was telling us about her horrific day she had the day before. get this. . .so she procedes to tell us how she went to the location of where they had planned to have their rehearsal dinner to start decorating. as she walks up to the door, it's locked with a sign in the window saying, "this place has been evicted due to failure to pay rent." okay, being the bride and the day before the dinner is planned, she freaks out. i can only imagine how stressful that must have been. eek! but luckily, ruth's chris steak house was able to accomodate all of her guests for the rehearsal dinner instead so everything was smooth sailing from there. i'll be honest, i'll take a free meal from ruth's chris over any place in birmingham so i think it was a blessing in disguise. hehe. here are some pics from dinner. . .lyla was VERY hungry!
