Trip to Utah, Vegas, Utah, and Josh's Reception

I'm finally getting around to posting about my trip to Utah, Vegas, back to Utah, and then home to California. Scarlet and I flew out to Utah on October 12th. Things were going great.... until the plane was delayed. Their excuse? "They burst the line where the blue juice goes in." Awesome. Stuck on a plane with a 1-year-old. Let me tell you how much fun that is. Needless to say, Scarlet screamed the entire flight from LA to Utah. Sorry to all the passengers on the flight with me.

I dropped Scarlet off at my parent's house, stayed the night, and then left the next morning with Leslie and Dari for Vegas! It was so good to see my long lost friends (even though it's only been two months since I last saw them). We got to eat great food, get pedicures, shop, and best of all, go to Brooke and James' wedding. It was gorgeous! Brooke was gorgeous! I felt so lucky to be there for such a special occasion. The weather couldn't have cooperated any better either. It was the dream wedding.

Plus, I got to see more of my favorite ladies while I was there! Ashley, Dari, Brooke, Leslie, Me, and Amanda. We go way too long in between seeing each other. Kind of hard though when we are scattered across the country.

After staying in Vegas for a few days, we came home (Utah home). I stayed with my parents for the week. I found these cute dresses for the girls to wear for Josh's reception. They were so adorable in them! Chloe really did like it, she just doesn't like pictures.

It was so good to go see Grandma Carolyn too! We got to see the Marziale cousins, Aunt Kacy, and Uncle Garrett. It was a really busy week! Scarlet stew?

Josh and Megan got married in a beautiful little church in Hawaii. Thankfully for the technology of a webcam, I got to witness their union. It was excellent! Since all of our friends and family couldn't go to Hawaii, they did a reception in Utah. At the end of the week, I got to help with Josh's reception. I had been making pumpkin spice trifles, and little cheesecakes all day the day before the reception. Here's the amazing spread thanks to the hard work of my mom, Megan, Megan's mom, Megan's sister-in-law, Cecelia.... the list goes on and on. We couldn't have done it without all of the help we had. It turned out to be absolutely beautiful!

Pumpkin rolls, trifle, assorted breads...

Apples, cream puffs, cheesecakes...

Pumpkin spice trifle, caramel apples...

Water, hot chocolate, cider...

We had such a great time in Utah! Sadly, I was really happy to come back to the 80+ degree weather in California and my own bed. Not to mention, I really missed Bella while I was gone. Getting home came with it's own set of problems though. Our flight from SLC to Long Beach was delayed 4 hours! Yep, awesome. I woke up at 4:30 a.m. so I could make it on my 10:30 a.m. flight. Scarlet thankfully fell asleep in her daddy's arms on the plane and stayed asleep all the way until we got home, plus an hour longer. She was pooped!

The center pieces.... SO CUTE!

Um, that food looks divine. I saw the invitation for Josh's reception at my folks house, although it was after the fact, so... ya know. Sounds like a great time!

Congrats to JOSH and MEGAN!
