At Last

Hii guys.. I didn't go MIA again!!

Remember I told you about my friend Allison and her wedding in Bahamas.. well that was this past weekend. Matthew and I flew down last Sunday and spent a few days to ourselves before the wedding. I meant to post before we left but time got away from me...

Allison and Jeremy had everything planned out so perfectly. Allison has always been super organized. She used to write things out over and over so that it didn't look messy and she would constantly try and schedule my life for me. Try being the keyword.

Everyone was always so shocked that we were as close as we were in College. Allison was definitely more serious and studious and I always just went with the flow. She would spend all day studying and prepping for tests and I would just sit there and flirt with boys. I always got better grades than her too- which I know she secretly hates me for. I couldn't help it.. I just retain information easily. In our adult lives though, you could see the differences. Allison and Jeremy are so calm and calculated whereas Matt and me are just plain chaos.

Thursday evening they hosted a cocktail party for all of the guests that had arrived from out of town. Matthew and me made friends with another couple Leslie and Graham. Leslie is Jeremy's cousin. I'm pretty sure I might have met her at a birthday or something but I couldn't really remember so I kept my mouth shut. Graham worked in the same industry as Matt so they compared notes and talked pretty much the whole night while Leslie and me got drunk.

There weren't any plans for Friday, so we ended up spending the day with Leslie and Graham again. We I didn't crawl out of bed until almost 1:00 pm, so we decided to get some lunch and spend the day by the pool. I didn't want to risk getting a bad sunburn the day before the wedding so I sat in the shade. I'm pretty sure I was also extremely hungover from the night before because just standing in the sun was making my head spin. Leslie didn't feel anywhere near as horrible as me, so clearly my partying days are over.

Later in the afternoon, we were all just chilling in the pool, and Leslie was getting way too touchy feely with Matthew. Allison and Jeremy had joined us at this point, and she could tell that I was starting to get irritated. I'm not a jealous person, but I am territorial... what's mine is mine! Allison asked Leslie to go and get some food with her, and gave me a knowing smile. I love that girl... she can read my mind like no one else.

The day of the wedding was beautiful. It rained a bit in the morning, but the sun came out dried up every last drop. Allison wore a long flowy dress, similar to this one. She wore her long blonde hair in a lose braid with a flower tucked behind her ear and went barefoot. She's beyond stunning. The bridesmaids wore long flowy dresses as well, but in a pretty floral pattern. Jeremy and his men all suited up in light grey- and traditional converse all stars. Typical Jeremy.

I was originally planning on wearing a long dress as well, but I ordered this dress super last minute, and it showed up at my door literally one hour before we left for the airport. Thank goodness it fit! I'm not crazy about blue, I feel like it makes me look washed out, but it looked so nice with my tan. Matthew of course looked extra sexual. He wore bluish grey pants that framed his beautiful behind and a white dress shirt that fit him even better. He had brought a jacket and tie, but decided to go without. He just looked so perfectly undone.

Leslie kept looking back at Matt through the whole ceremony. It should have irritated me but I secretly love when women stare at him. I know he only ever has eyes for me. They can look, but they can not touch.. that's when crazy Tori comes out! The rest of the night was magical. Allison and Jeremy's first dance was to "At Last" by Etta James, and I cried. Not like a Kim K ugly cry, but a few solid tears trickled down. Matt noticed, so he pulled me closer and kissed the top of my head. Even in heels he towers over me.

Overall, we had an amazing trip. We both got to relax and catch up on some much needed rest. I feel like the last few months have been so mentally draining for both of us. You don't realize how much of a toll it takes on your body until you finally get a chance to relax. We also spent the week without turning our phones on - which I think helped a lot.

I hate sounding so corny, but I can't imagine what my life would be without Matthew. It's crazy to think that just over a year ago I swore I would never be in a long term relationship, and now here I am, wanting to spend every waking moment with this man. I'm so grateful for him and everything that he's brought to my life.

But enough with the mushy stuff.. my next post will be back to regular scheduled drama!
