my best friend got married!

I got to fly to Illinois to be with my best friend for her wedding. I, along with multiple other people, helped set up her reception hall. The wedding was beautiful. Kayla was beautiful. & I teared up when I saw that she was tearing up. The reception was a blast & the food was super delicious. The most amazing thing were the cake pops that Kayla’s mom made!

The day after the wedding, we all had to leave. :( Before we headed to the airport, we went sight seeing, ate some yummy ice cream, & went to a museum where they kept trying to kick us out. lmao.

We got our eyebrows done pretty much as soon as I landed. lol.
