Wedding Prep Weekend!

 Last weekend, I hit the road and headed to Pittsburgh to spend a few days with one of my dearest friends to prep for her wedding!  Kelly and I met at Ohio University, where in the same fraternity (yes, you read correctly, fraternity.  As in co-ed service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega.  We did good and had lots of fund doing so.) and she was my roommate and partner in crime in my London study abroad adventure.  I had so much fun spending time with Kelly and being a part of her bridal shower and bachelorette party.  Here are a few photos of my fun, fun weekend:

Thank you tags to go with the party favors
After I arrived, we made a little grocery store run and then started baking cupcakes for the shower, Corona and Blue Moon Cupcakes.  We were up until midnight baking these puppies. Yes, they were delicious.  Yes, you should try them.

Ready for the oven
Let the beer basting begin!
Starting the frosting, why yes,  that is 12 oz. of whipped
cream cheese. 
 The next morning, we headed out for an interval run and then got ready for the shower (which was held at a lovely restaurant called Table).
Beautiful Guest of Honor!
Our finished product!
 After spending the afternoon at the shower, being pampered with Mani's and Pedi's, and some afternoon drinks, we headed to downtown Pittsburgh for the bachelorette festiveness!

After enjoying some drinks and dinner at Bar Louie, we headed out for some dancing.
There were fireworks after the Pirates game,
they didn't translate well into photo.

Such a fun, fun weekend.  So glad to be able to spend it with my dear, dear friend and get to know some of her fabulous friends!  Can't wait for her big day in a few weeks!
