so my weekend was fantastic. it was the kind of break i never get but desperately needed. the weather ended up gorgeously even though rain was forecast through the weekend. damn meteorologists!
it was at the ritz carlton out there and the people at the ritz do not mess around. from the bulgari toiletries to the 15 minute turnaround pressing my dress for the wedding, the whole thing was luxurious. every staff member who passes you says hello and asks if you need anything. i've never been waited on hand and foot before and it was embarrassingly enjoyable.
the coolest part about a destination wedding was the chance to meet and bond with all the other wedding guests so by the time the wedding rolls around everyone knows each other. i got to spend quality time with some good law school friends who i never see anymore. there were about a dozen kids there too. i'm not a fan of children really but these kids were SO MUCH FUN. granted, they were not typical children. the family they came from were practically ethiopian royalty so these kids were mature and such characters (and incredibly spoiled). also the bride has a 10 year old son who is the smartest cutest boy i know.
the breakfast buffet at the hotel was amazing. i could eat there every day for the rest of my life and be happy. also life changing: the frozen mojito. i'm a girl who likes mint. i usually pull my mint leaves out of my mojitos to eat them. the brilliance of a frozen mojito was that the mint had been blended so they were little specks in my freezing glass of happiness. LIFE CHANGING. seriously. i will never be the same. i have a love affair with an alcoholic drink. is that wrong?
fish tacos at the poolside cabana bar were brilliant and served alongside homemade tortilla chips.
the groom had a hot groomsman named dave who was by turns completely immature and insecure or amazingly charming and intelligent. so at times, i hated him. other times, i lusted after him. regardless, he's single, we spent a lot of time together, and i hope he tries to get a hold of me.
in all, it was great. a treat i wouldn't have otherwise given myself. three days that felt like 5. yay.
