Just One More Vacation Day, Please… / Tayls and John Get Married!

9 Jul

Oh boy. First full week of work after a bitchin’ vacation. My wagon is draggin’ (feel free to steal that phrase), but I have a *lot* to catch up on.

Let’s start with the wedding of the summer – Tayls and John got married!! They are just the sweetest people and they are going to have a very wonderful and musical life together. 🙂

I shamelessly stole this from @cdomm ‘s Instagram page 🙂

What a lovely wedding! – in a beautiful church by a lake in Upstate NY and the weather was just perfect. The reception was also quite lovely – it was in a lodge with great food and even better people.

If you’re on Instagram, you can find photos of the wedding by searching #pipesweddingstravaganza.

I loved getting to see all of the Pipes and getting to sing with everyone again! Holy nostalgia, Batman! It reminded me of being with everyone when I first joined my a cappella group. It’s where I got the name Beezy from. 🙂

The next leg of my journey was the trip to Philly. That one is a bit more detailed, so I’ll save that for a different post.


How I Spent My Summer Vacation

8 Jul

This was pretty much my mantra during my week-long vacation-extravaganza. I had more fun and did more things than I thought I could handle.

I watched two friends start their lives together.

Congrats, you crazy kids!

I said goodbye to both the amazing and terrible times I’ve had in my Philadelphia apartment.

I saw the Rocky Statue, the Liberty Bell, the Art Museum, Betsy Ross’s house.

I drove a multi-ton death torpedo (or a rental truck, depending on how you look at it) with all of my earthly belongings strategically placed inside.

I collected a ton of bruises from cramming said earthly belongings into the multi-ton death torpedo.

I saw more shapes and colors of glass than I knew existed.

I drank lemonade and watched fireworks with someone fantastic.

Thanks for the .gif, Mashable 🙂

I got a sunburn from not paying attention to the time I was outside talking with my sister on the phone.

I made iced tea from scratch.

I watched some great movies.

Most importantly, I laughed. I laughed until my face hurt. I laughed until I thought my sides were going to tear apart from the sheer joy I felt.

I’ll probably post more detail about my Summer Shutdown adventures later, but for now, I’m going to revel in the last few hours I have until vacation is officially over…
