As most of you already know, I chose another Rent the Runway dress for this wedding. It's a rental service for designer dresses that I've used a few times. But when I opened up the package, the jeweled belt it came with wasn't there! Cue mini meltdown. I tried it on with a few belts and finally realized a ribbon necklace would work as a belt...crisis averted.
My cousin's wedding was this past Saturday night in NYC at the Harvard Club. This venue is supposed to be upscale, but I wasn't impressed. Animal heads like deer, elephants, ox etc were on the walls...not exactly romantic. I just pictured old men smoking cigars and drinking whiskey in there. The cocktail hour only had passed hors d'oeuvres, 90% of which were seafood/fish which I don't eat. The food at the reception was not a whole lot better, but at least I was able to eat the entree. I spotted a Chipotle across the street and I seriously thought about grabbing a burrito. We did have fun taking photos though... (Big thanks to my parents for their camera...I forgot mine! Blogger's worst nightmare.)

Maybe my hubby should run for President?
