This weekend I’ve been…otherwise engaged.
When I wasn’t sleeping, I was eating food. Delicious food. From Dutch baby pancakes to pulled pork sandwiches, it’s been another successful weekend of meals here in the Bender household.
My mom also recreated the Cucumber-Citrus Skinny Margarita. She did an amazing job!
When I wasn’t eating, I was watching the Olympics…
Check out this gigantic hawk’s nest spotted on the 17th hole today. Incredible!
And when I wasn’t golfing, I was otherwise engaged, jumping up and down on the course.
Why, you ask? Because at approximately 8:01 a.m. Arizona time, I received the call that every best friend dreams of getting. The call that can easily bring you to tears because you’re so happy. The call where your best friend announces she is officially going to marry the love of her life.
That’s right. The garter and bouquet toss winners at my wedding are getting hitched! While I could pretend that their catching talents had something to do with it, the truth is that Sam and Alex have been destined for this day since they first met in the fall of 2005.
Congratulations to two of the most incredible people I know. I am so excited for what’s to come in the next year and beyond. Cheers to a lifetime of happiness! Let the planning begin.
