Latest Happenings – Matron of Honor

One of my most favorite people in the entire world got married last weekend – my beautiful cousin, Heather. She and I are very close, and she is close to her other cousin on her dad’s side of the family, too, so we both acted as Matrons of Honor. We were both so honored Heather asked us both to stand up with her.

Heather is more than a cousin. She’s always been more like my sister. The memories we have are endless – and full of so many laughs. We took her on many vacations with us…she became my travel companion. We’d end up fighting at least once each vacation, but isn’t that what “sisters” are supposed to do?! šŸ™‚ She always helped me get out of my comfort zone, and she was more adventurous than I. I hate living so far away from her now, but I know she’s always there for me.

And now I’m so happy she’s finally found her prince! I remember a little over two years ago, she was going to give up on finding love. I told her that it would come when she wasn’t looking…and it did! Now I hope they have some cute babies to add to our family!

Heather is a makeup artist and hair stylist, so her coworker and best friend did our hair and makeup. It was awesome! I can’t tell you the last time I had my makeup professionally done – and used bobby pins in my hair!

I think my makeup turned out awesome. My skin looked flawless!

And my hair was curled with a flat iron. I’ve got to practice curling with my flat iron. Marcy, the girl who did my hair, just curled and then started pinning randomly. I LOVED it!

The wedding was at the top of my parent’s building in Chicago. They don’t call it The Windy City for nothing. Look at our hair during the ceremony – and we are both holding our dresses down šŸ™‚

I’m sad I couldn’t help my cousin as much, so when she asked me to put together her flowers for the reception, I was ecstatic! I think they turned out pretty darn well. I loved the vintage mason jars Heather found!

Remember how I said we loved to laugh – well, I think this picture proves that point!
