MOB's engaged + STL with CK

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Even after a holiday season filled weekend I'm still in denial that Christmas is on Sunday - where did the time go?

If time is my issue then this past weekend was the perfect holiday primer as I traveled to St. Louis for a weekend with CK and his wonderful family...

... but more on that later because something HUGE, MASSIVE, AMAZING, WONDERFUL happen Friday afternoon before I boarded a plane to STL.


Foxxy, MOB, me and Beaver are all super excited!!! I promise Pete is too, but maybe not so much in this picture. It may or may not have been all my screaming with joy that scared him :)

MOB is one of, if not "my best friend" (right Beaver?) and to say that I was excited after patiently waiting for Pete to pop the question would be the understatement of the year. I'm so genuinely happy for my friend I'm not sure I can put it in words.

So just like I did when I walked into the Public House before heading to the airport on Friday for a celebratory shot + cocktails I'll just scream, cry and jump up and down for 5 minutes.

As a slightly buzzed up passenger post PH I made my way to CLE to board my flight to STL for, as I previously mentioned, for a fun filled holiday celebration with CK and his family. We ate + drank + caroled + visited + danced + open presents and generally had a good time. And I can't thank CK's family enough for their hospitality and general awesomeness.

CK's sister + brother-in-law Maggie and Chuck and CK's other sister Caroline and her boyfriend Parker caroling the night away.

CK demonstrating one of his iPhone capable Christmas presents and Parker, CK and Jessica taking a break from a rousing game of front yard soccer with a child sized glitter soccer ball - it was magical.

At the end of the weekend I left STL feeling happy and loved which is all that you can ask for after spending a weekend with your boyfriend's* family, right?

Say it with me now, "Awwwwwwwwwwww".

Happy Tuesday, kids!

*Disclosure: I'm 100% positive this is the first time in 1.5+ years of dating that I officially referred to CK as my boyfriend on this blog.
