weekend recap: from montana, with love.

And we’re back!  Nice to see you.  Although I can’t believe the weekend is over and it’s Monday, again. Must it happen every week?

So we were in Montana for a wedding this weekend, which was so much fun. The ceremony was beautiful, the company was top-notch and lierally all the fun was had. Great Falls itself wasn’t exactly as I had pictured though. In my head it was all mountains and rivers and wildlife… and Jake Gyllenhaal in a flannel, drinking a Coors Lite at the local watering hole. In reality, it was very middle-America looking, the wildlife consisted of flies and squirrels and there were no mountains in sight. And as far as Jake G…. well, there were men, and there was Coors Lite, and that’s where the similarities end. Good thing I had my husband there as a back-up.

Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t bad. Not at all. It just wasn’t what I was expecting. And in fact I felt happy there because it actually took me back about 10 years to my midwest roots. We went to Dairy Queen for the first time in years, I heard the Cranberries playing on the radio (twice) and beers were $2.50 at The Max, our bar du’jour for the weekend. Which I believe makes me Kelly Kapowski. (Just go with it.) And in case you didn’t hear me the first time, $2.50 beers! …the heck?

On Saturday we took a little trolley ride with our friends Teddy & Eileen so we could experience some of the Great Falls majesty.  Take a look if you’d like….IMG_0228IMG_0242IMG_0255IMG_0235 IMG_0234IMG_0254

And then we headed to a quaint little venue for the beautiful wedding.  And we got to laugh and dance and drink all night with some pretty great people. It’s hard to believe we only met these guys last summer…

(thanks Eileen for some of the photos.  and also for the “floss” :)
