I hope everyone has a fun weekend ahead planned! I am jittery with excitement, because I’m headed to Austin for my darling friend Becca’s wedding! I’d happily add in ten more exclamation marks to the end of that sentence, but I don’t want to freak anyone out. She and her fiance, Blake, are the cutest high school sweethearts you’ve ever seen. After four years of getting to know them at college (Becca was a KKG at the University of Texas with me) all of her friends and I are so excited to finally see them tie the knot! Congrats, you two!

(In honor of #flashbackfriday, I had to share this photo of us from freshman year… Becca, doesn’t this feel like yesterday?!)
