My Best Friend's Wedding...without Julia Roberts.

Since Carlee doesn't seem to enjoy the blog world as of lately, I took it upon myself to inform you all of her celebrity-style wedding last Saturday. It was remarkable. Classy. Perfect in every sense of the word. I'd thought I'd post some highlights of the wedding.

-Took place at the very exclusive Glenwild Country Club in Park City.
-Enjoyed a bridesmaid day of yoga and spa day (hair and makeup).
-Carlee rockin her Monique Lhuillier designer dress while every girl stared at her with envy.
-Ceremony at the adorably quaint St. Mary's Catholic Cathedral.
-Photo booth for guests. Guests getting a little crazy in the booth.
-A few memorable toasts and tributes to the bride and groom.
-Daddy-daugther dance to Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight".
-Ben's heartfelt tribute to his new wife (not a dry eye in the building).
-Dance party Roderick Family style.
-Catered Dolcetti Gelato. Best in Utah, hands down.
-Several buffets of the most delicious, eloquent and melt in your mouth food.
-The biggest chocolate-covered strawberries I've ever seen. It literally took five minutes to eat one.
-Favors included homemade lemoncello and personally designed koozies.
-Carlee, Laura, Blaire and I dancing and air-guiataring to none other than AC/DC "You Shook Me All Night Long". We represent our Delta Gamma roots well.
-Bachelorette Party Weekend in Palm Springs.
-Wedding Rehearsal Dinner at The River Horse --best filet mignon ever.
-Bridesmaid dinner the wedding eve at Cafe Terigo in Park City.

There will be more authentic pictures of the wedding soon but for now I'd thought I'd post pictures of the Glendwild Country Club.

Congratulations Carlee and Ben!

My Guiltiest Pleasure...

Ok. So I might watch one of the worst shows in the world. Yeah that's right. The Hills. I think I enjoy watching it because it reminds me of how normal and pleasant my life is compared to these hooligans. I got to say my favorite characters on the show are Spencer and Heidi. Not because they represent anything good or decent but simply because they are so entertaining. I believe in the latest episode Heidi actually said she wants to get "H" cups. Yeah. You heard me right. You may be asking yourself why. Well, because "H" stands for Heidi. Duh. Of course.

Luckily for us, Spencer is now completely off his rocker. He's always been a total tool but now he's actually crazy. He's either doing some serious drugs or some form of Hatha yoga. His style has turned from douche-bag clubbin' scenester to crazed hippie. It's a spectacular transformation. Mind boggling, indeed.

Another fun fact about the latest Hills gossip. Audrina is successfully dating a bigger tool than Spencer. None else than Ryan Cabrera. I don't know what's worse, his flat-ironed hair or his deplorable music. Nonetheless, serves for great entertainment.

Here is a picture of my faves. Spencer just being his awesome self...intensified by some form of hallucinogen. And Heidi in her newly-plastic robotic self.

Here is Ryan Cabrera in all his awesomeness. He's just asking to get beat up. Two words: flat-iron.

Another horrible confession. I actually like Gossip Girl. It's like Cruel Intentions meets the O.C. Except it's in New York. Great show. The best part is I actually despise the elite "Ivy Leaguers" even more after watching this show.

I actually don't fill my day with complete garbage. I've been reading a wonderful book. I'm 70 pages into it and loving my life. If you haven't read this yet, I highly recommend it. Have a fun-filled weekend. Peace.
