Don't worry if you can't keep up, I can't either. My family and friends have SERIOUSLY outdone themselves over the last year. For those that follow me, you know I am getting married in about a month but we have been engaged for about a year and eight months.
We have a super fun situation in which we both have huge families that we are extremely close with and friends in both states we grew up in (plus a dozen other states). We live in Rhode Island, where Teddy grew up so that makes half the battle a bit easier. The best way to sum up what I am trying to say is, we have been partying for the last year and a half. Right after the engagement, we headed to Sea Isle City for an informal celebration with my close friends and family. Then, around Thanksgiving, we had a second engagement party in New Jersey because the whole family was in town at my mom's house. We then proceeded to continue the party in Rhode Island when T's mom threw us an engagement party in Newport. Are you still following?
Fast forward to the past few months and I have now had two bridal showers (one in both states) and two/three? bachelorette parties. It sounds totally crazy but it makes perfect sense to everyone involved, promise, haha. The weekend of my Jersey shower, me and my besties hit the town in Philadelphia for a night of fun. I then went to Miami a few weeks after with a smaller group. Most recently, after my shower at T's mom's house, my girlfriends in Rhode Island surprised us with a night of fun and reckless behavior. I am guessing you all understand the hashtag now, hahaha.
I had gotten a few questions about everything and although it shouldn't matter, I thought I would explain it for those curious. Teddy still has his bachelor party coming up but his friends joined us this past weekend with mine. If the last year and a half is any bit of a preview for the wedding, we are all in for the best. weekend. ever!
