Weekend Update - Wedding, Football, Wardrobe

Whew, what a whirlwind weekend!
We attended the wedding of one of Stew's co-workers on Saturday evening, which meant bringing Ryder down to Olympia to spend the night with my parents. Seriously, I don't know what we would do without their help and support (probably not attend five weddings in a single summer, that's for sure).
The wedding was at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, and it was absolutely beautiful. The reception was filled with delicious food, drinks, dancing, and lots of friends, so it was a great opportunity for Stew and I to have a night out on the town.



The beautiful bride and groom.
Congratulations Jordan and Chelsey!
And don't worry, Ryder also had a fantastic evening with the family. Not only did he get to see Grandpa and Nana, but he saw his great grandparents as well as some uncles and aunties.

On Sunday morning we checked out of the hotel bright and early so we could collect Ryder from Olympia and get home before kickoff...
The 2015 Seattle Seahawks football season has officially started!
Of course our favorite tailgate buddies, Haley and Brett, were there to start the season with us.
Following the Seahawks loss (did anyone else feel like they were watching the Super Bowl all over again?) I co-hosted a clothing swap in the evening with some friends.

This is the second time I've hosted a swap, and it was so much fun! Basically everyone cleans out their closets and brings any unwanted items. Then everyone gets the opportunity to sort through all the clothes and shoes and take home whatever they'd like.
It's shopping for free!

I snagged quite a few fabulous new items, and I think I actually took home more than I contributed... not necessarily the best thing, because I'm trying to clean out my closet. But I sure do like my new wardrobe!
How was your weekend?

  2. Lookin GOOD in that little black dress, friend! :) So nice that you have family nearby to help and give y'all a fun night out. Sorry about your team's loss- we won big this week but I still know what it's like to start the season with an L. Next game, next game! :)

  3. Having family around is SO helpful and I'm sure the grandparents and great grandparents (how amazing) love the time with Ryder. A clothing swap sounds like a WONDERFUL idea.
