She's Just Bein' Miley!

Today was the Halloween costume contest at DHS. A student suggested the other day that Kristin and I dress up as the two identities of Miley Cyrus, Miley and Hannah Montana!

I think we were a hit! :)

The Little Things...

It's the little things that add up to make my relationship with Al so amazing. One of those little things is the fact that he can continuously keep me laughing, even when he isn't trying. See below.

I met up with some of my best friends, Kim and Abbie, at Sun Singer Cafe in Champaign this evening and indulged in a delicious Grilled Cheese Supreme, per Holly's recommendation. The girls and I also shared a bottle of Moscato, and I capped it off with a red wine slushie. Yum!

Colleen met up with us at the end of our meal, and she, Kim, and I headed to C-Street for some dancing. We had a blast bustin' a move to our favorite jams!

Coco had to cool off a bit before leavin' da club!

Alas, at one point Coco had to attend to a crying baby at home, so Kim and I headed over to Highdive to meet up with our menfolk.
Rob was lamenting about having to miss out on the smoochies...too bad!

Kim and I put our new sweatbands to good use on the dance floor! Don't sweat it girl!

All in all, it was a great night out with fantastic ladies and, later on, great guys too! :)

Tonight, Al and I went up to Chicago to see one of our favorite bands, Jimmy Eat World in concert. After our near-emergency on the Stevenson (thanks a lot President Obama!), we made it to the show unscathed and met up with our friend, Emily.

The show was incredible, especially after Al was able to find us a spot with a great view!

Mr. and Mrs. Post

On October 2, 2010, two of my very best friends got married. Chad and Katie Post are so in love and Al and I were elated to attend their wedding. They said their vows at St. Patrick's Church in Urbana, with all of their loved ones looking on.

Afterwards, we all headed to The Linden in Rantoul, where Chad and Katie held their reception. After guests added their thumbprint and signature to the guest tree, we headed into the beautifully decorated banquet room. Blown up versions of Chad and Katie's engagement photos hung from the wall, with gorgeous fall decorations on each table.

We all enjoyed a delicious dinner and cake, fun time with friends and dancing. We're very happy for Chad and Katie, and can't wait to spend some married time with them! :)
