I don't know about you, but when I've had an amazing time, I find I never know what to say when someone asks me how it was. 'It was amazing,' doesn't seem to cover it, you know? Even when it WAS amazing. That's how I feel about my trip to the States, because it was absolutely amazing.
The absolute highlight was the whole reason for the trip, Erin and Pete's wedding. Erin is absolutely one of my favourite people in the entire world and so I'm not surprised that her wedding was incredible. There were so many cool little details, and I loved the novelty of going to an outdoor wedding. It was held at the breathtaking Huntsville State Park in Texas, at the Raven Lodge. Check out the view of the lake!
From beautiful flowers to amazing desserts to the best gosh darn canapes I've ever had, it was a perfect day. There was a photobooth (I think I need to buy myself a Viking helmet to wear to every party), dancing (including my attempt at leading the Saturday Night dance) and many, many cocktails.
I finally wore this dress which I blogged about months ago. I'd already decided to wear my red sparkly Dorothy shoes with it, but when I was having a trying on session at home before I went away, I rediscovered this belt which I'd totally forgotten about. Perfect match! Plus, I'm not really sure an outfit can have too much glitter. That's like saying a meal has too much cheese on it, right?

I must say though, after tearing in to the canapes like deep fried mac'n'cheese and meatballs-on-sticks, I did slightly regret wearing a dress with a boned bodice. But I'd do it all again for more deep fried mac'n'cheese. Wouldn't you?
And now I have no more weddings to look forward to. SOB. I'll be crossing my fingers for some NYE engagements, because goodness knows I LOVE a wedding. I'm not sure if I mentioned that.
Congratulations Erin and Pete!
