This past weekend, SMS and I headed to the East Coast for Marissa and Blake’s wedding!
First, we arrived on Friday at LGA and picked up our rental car. We headed to my uncle’s house, about 25 minutes from West Point. We spent the night with Rick, Jen, Tahoe and Vegas (the dogs). It was really nice to see them and hang out a little longer than we were able to at the wedding.
The next day, I was stressed because I had forgotten my uniform shirt. Dumb, dumb, dumb! When will I learn to double check that EVERYTHING is there? Since my other shirt was on its merry way to Japan, we left Rick’s, picked up Karen in Garrison and went to the PX. Fortunately, we got there with plenty of time. We dropped our stuff off at my med school friends’ house then headed out to the wedding.
The West Point chapel is BEAUTIFUL! It was a really nice ceremony and the first kiss was awesome! Then, I was in the sword arch, which was my first one ever. I was really honored and excited to be a part of it!
That afternoon, we went out to lunch and then I took a nap. We got ready for the reception and the three of us headed out to the West Point club. We had a great time and it was a beautiful setting. All my college friends except Laddie were there. I was really grateful to have the chance to see everyone before leaving for Japan.
