Weekend Recap - Road Trip Ediion

Wow! It's Saturday! An entire week has passed and I have yet to give you a road trip recap from our past weekend! Not sure how the week got away from me! Bit here is a brief recap from our road trip to Louisville! 

We headed out of town Wednesday afternoon to hit up Chicago! We stayed with my friend Sam and her fiancĂ© Ryan!  It was great to be able to relax and enjoy sometime catching up with them! 

Thursday after a quick and yummy brunch with Sam, Derek and I hit the road for Indianapolis! It was time to visit butler!

Derek and I took a quick campus tour before catching up with my former boss and lovely friend Amanda! 

It was great to being back on campus and to be able to show Derek my Alma Mater!  So many good memories at Butler! 

As Derek and I left Butler we made a small detour at the flying cupcake...

More amazing then I remember it! 
And then hit the road again for Louisville - Just an hour and a half left!

Upon arriving in Louisville we quickly checked into our beautiful room at the Brown Hotel  

and freshened up so we could meet the bride to be, her family and some friends for dinner at ! 

The veggie pizza was amazing! 
After a few drinks and laughs at the hotel bar we all called it a night! 

Friday- Derek and I headed out for a scenic 6.2 mile run around Louisville where we ran across this amazing bridge to Indiana! The Big 4 Bridge -

Running is seriously one of the best ways to see a city! 
 Once we returned from our run we quickly cleaned up and headed out for a delicious lunch at 301 Bistro! 

Amazing food! Derek enjoyed crab cakes while I had a greek wrap!  Yum! 

Post lunch we were off to explore and our first stop was The Louisville Slugger museum! 

So cool! 

After that we wandered around a bit more before heading back to the hotel to meet my friend Ashely and get ready for Kari and Russ's rehearsal dinner! Loved celebrating the couple!

Saturday started with a nice run, a walk to Starbucks and a 2 mile walk to brunch! 
After that it was time to get ready for the wedding! 

Kari and Russ's wedding was beautiful!  There was so much love in their day and you could truly tell how happy they are together!

Congrats you guys!

Didn't she make a beautiful bride?

I had so much fun celebrating the lovely couple, catching up with old friends and dancing the night away! 

Saturday night ended with a trip to 4th Street Live for some more dancing and fun!

All in all it was a wonderful weekend full of friends, memories and lots of celebrating!
