Adieu to what I shall deem the busiest year ever

2013 by the numbers:

2 bouquets caught
3 bachelorette parties
5 continents
7 business trips
9 countries
10 weddings
33 weekends spent NOT in Houston

It was a year of travel and a year of weddings...and sometimes traveling for weddings.

I was busy, exhausted, broke financially challenged, and loved every second of it.

In a year where I lived out of my suitcase more than my closet, I feel like I really started to come into my own. This year, more than any other, I feel like I've embraced who I am and really owned it.

With a giant move coming in March, I'm glad that 2013 was spent celebrating so many friends and making such lasting memories.

2014...expat life in Australia. Let's do this!

Alex Maldonado- Wedding guest extraordinaire!

Apparently age 26 is when all your friends get married.

I attended a whopping 10 weddings this year and was in three.

Let's break it down, shall we?


Cath & Quinton
[extra points for this one being in Australia]


Courtney & Jake 


Rebecca & David 

June- what I like to refer to as the wedding double header. One weekend. Two weddings. Two bridesmaid dresses.

Emily & Ben 

Swampy & Neeraj 


Taylor & Mark 


Sarah & Comeaux 


Kassie & Zack 


Marjory & Matt 


Jordan & Zach

Clearly I should go into a new career field...professional wedding guest! Trust me, I have it down by this point. And even more...I actually love going to weddings. 
I admit it.
Free food, free booze, lots of embarrassing dancing in which I'm usually the first one out on the floor, CAKE, and even a competitive ritual in which women fight each other to the death for a bouquet of flowers. 
Oh, you don't take bouquet tosses that seriously? Pardon me.
Oh and happiness and love and all that, of course.

So there we have it folks, wedding guest of the year!

Now I have a break...until February.
