My Best Friend's Wedding

Last weekend one of my very best friends got married. Allison and Mikey's wedding weekend was amazing- almost a trip back in time to when I was in high school (hanging with the girls, catching up on life, laying out on my parent's deck).  At one point I was thinking how if KC was like that all the time I would consider moving back.

The rehearsal dinner was at Boulevard Brewery.  The ceremony was at Holy Spirit.  The reception was at  Drexel Hall.  It was all perfect. Allison was THE MOST beautiful bride.  I am so thankful that Allison has been in my life for the past 13 years.  Mikey and Alli couldn't be more perfect for each other.

Being silly...

Project "Get Fit"

Tyson got fat.  Its not really any ones fault considering he was literally immobile for about 6-8 weeks after his surgery.     On top of that, he was on a lot of pain killers which decreased his apetite which led to us feeding him treats, home cooked meals, etc. so he would actually eat.

Lets just say the vet was not too excited when we took him in this week.

Tyson before surgery:  about 65 lbs
Tyson today: 80.4lbs


Tyson is now on a 'get fit' plan.  Daily walks and runs no. matter. what. Adam has done the best job of waking up really early the past few weeks in order to take Tyson running.  I am more of the weekend trainer.

 Showing off his amazing balancing skills

Hi mom! I'm having fun. 

Chillin with Mike (more on our new roommates later...).  Excuse the blurr.

I am obsessed with weddings. Which means I am equally excited about engagements considering that is step 1 to getting married.  So when Nick Paradise told us his engagement plans for Labor Day weekend  it was hard to contain myself for the next two weeks!   Not to mention that Nick and Maddie where staying with us the TWO nights before the proposal happened... talk about having to check myself every time I spoke!!

The Date: Friday, August 31
The Place: Frisco, CO

Nick and Maddie had planned to be up in Frisco for Labor Day weekend.  The plan that Maddie knew was that Adam and I were going to join them after work on Friday to stay for the weekend.   What REALLY happened is that Nick had invited their families and friends from all over to come surprise Maddie after he proposed on Friday night.

So with about 15 friends and families waiting (hiding) patiently up at Saphire Point in Frisco, Nick got down on bended knee and asked Maddie to marry him.  The pictures probably tell it best.

Beginning to propose


Ok, now lets actually put the ring on :) 


The group!  Minus a few... 

(and, yes, she saw Adam there... Nick had told Maddie this is where they were meeting up with us... when he started to propose it began with "I am really glad Adam is here to document this special moment..." )

After the proposal, Nick then surprised Maddie with the mountain house he had rented for everyone for  the weekend.  Yes, folks, not only did he pull off an amazing proposal, but he made sure everyone that came was well taken care of with a place to stay + food + beer.

The rest of the weekend went something like this:  drinking, eating, staying up WAY too late, repeat.  Hiking, recovering.

Congrats to Nick and Maddie! So glad we could be a part of it!
