Anotha one bites the dust.

Last week, one of my best friends Melanie got married! She was my very first friend at Higley when I switched high schools my sophmore year. She is so fun and sweet and has always been such a good friend to me. We have SO many funny memories. I freakin love her!
Anyways, I got to throw her bachlorette party. It was 4 days before Christmas so I was pretty worried that nobody would be able to come. But we got a pretty good turn out and it was such a blast to see everyone! I love my girlfriends and even though we all dont get to see eachother very much, when we do it is seriously so much fun.
She's the cute red head in the middle.


My mom let me have it at her lovely house and helped me with the food and decorating. We did fondue! My favorite. It was fun trying to make everything cute.



Then on the 26th was their wedding dinner. It was beautiful and the food...amazing. Like a full christmas dinner with turkey and rolls and everything...so good. The Merchant family is basically llike the Von Trap family from the Sound of Music. With red hair. So of course there was a musical program. The cutest thing I have to say is when Ben's mom sang. It was adorable.

Here's the happy couple.


The festivities continue... the next day was the wedding and we got to be in the temple with them! It was so awesome and Brennon and I's first wedding to go to together. But you have to hear my embarrassing story. So were in the sealing and for some reason I hadn't eaten too much that morning. So were sittin there in the middle of it all, its completly silent except for the sealer and my stomach made seriously the loudest growl i've ever heard. I'm sure everyone could hear it. And this happened like 3 times. Way to ruin the moment huh.



That night was the reception. It was gorgeous. I got to be bridesmaid! My dress was like a full on long dress it was so fun! I felt like I was going to prom again.

Melanie has taught clogging since she was 13 and is an amazing dancer. Her girls that she has taught seriously worship her. They suprised her with a clogging numer of a bunch of the dances she has taught them. It was so cute. Melanie and Ben also sang a duet together that was adorable. They are gonna have some talented kids.


Congrats Mel, I love ya! Get a blog!
