Let the Festivities Begin

We traveled to Charlotte this weekend for an engagement party for my brother Logan and his sweet fiancee Katie. My in-laws kept Sterling over night so we had a baby free evening and morning. It was super weird to sleep in and not wake up to a baby crying, and by sleep in I mean 7:30. I swear my body is so used to waking up early that I physically can’t sleep late anymore.
I decided since it was the Holidays I would glam it up in sequined dress I had bought but had no where to wear it to until now!

The party was filled with delicious food, like this amazing sushi! I swear I gained like 5 lbs this weekend between all the booze and food!

And these super cute “K” and “L” Cookies for Logan and Katie.

Matt and my brother ended up wearing pretty much the exact same outfit, it was pretty hilarious

The boys of the family: Brian, Matt, Joey and Logan

All us girls: Kelly, Me, Katie and my sister Taylor

Our moms decided to join us in this picture

The fabulous koozies we had made for the party because what wedding party doesn’t have monogrammed koozies!

Hope you all had as great a weekend as we did! I am so excited this is just the start of all the fun wedding parties and not to mention holiday parties! I am hoping my sparkle dress gets worn again this season:)

    You AND your dress are absolutely gorgeous. So glad you were able to enjoy a full night out! We had one Friday night. I woke up at 6 am and jumped b/c our video monitor wasn't on- ha!

    You're my hero for leaving the baby for a night, I hope I'll get there at some point. Now if only I had a sparkly dress and yummy sushi waiting for me that night might come sooner then I'm thinking 🙂
