at work the other day, my boss was pulling up supposedly embarrassing pictures of himself to show people. one was from before his kids were born - aka The Time When He Still Had Hair - but then he pulled up a "really embarrassing" one of him in about 8th grade.
it was... a picture of a perfectly normal-looking kid at the beach. maybe some floppier-than-technically-necessary hair, but certainly nothing egregious.
"i hope you all don't think that's an embarrassing childhood photo, because that would be, like, the best photo taken of me as a kid," i commented. there was some good-natured joking, but clearly no one believed me that i had the awkwardest - like, no, seriously, THE AWKWARDEST - childhood.
sooo... i pulled up this old gem:
this is no surprise. you guys, i always win that game. i have a whole childhood's worth of photos jussssst like that one, people. I WIN AWKWARD.
and now for someone incredibly NOT awkward! (how's that for a segue?) my lovely friend alyssa got married a few weekends ago in Rochester, NY (which was pretty awesome since it was 104 in DC that weekend, and something like 79 in Rochester. SO VERY MUCH BETTER).
how beautiful is alyssa??
it POURED the entire morning leading up to the wedding, but cleared up beautifully just in time for their ceremony to be held right on the edge of Seneca Lake.
aww... these guys...
also! look at my pretty bridesmaid friends:
...and then we found the wall tap.
see, the wedding was held at a winery.
and there was a tap, DIRECTLY IN THE WALL, right outside of the room chris & i were staying in.
a wine tap.
things got... inappropriate.
happily, we managed not to do this DURING the wedding, and remained mainly civil and didn't embarass the bride & groom too much. (i hope.)
so, that was 3 weekends ago. last weekend, chris and i headed up to toronto for another wedding.. and in a month we head to chicago for his brother's wedding. and VERY excitingly, we just found out we'll be attending yet another wedding in march, for these two fools:
so. excited. these two? good people.
