working hard at the classic toilet paper wedding dress game during the bridal shower 
and we won haha. we're definitely on trend with the off-shoulders and cute little bow complete with the bling hahahaha 
best wedding reception food ever - endless sushi! 
the cake was pretty AND delicious 
thankful to have tshun as my partner-in-crime to carry out all the bridemaid duties! from running around making sure the decorations were up to getting food for the bride and groom to running to make sure the drinks were filled halfway through eating to cleaning up after the wedding and running to our cars halfway to change out of our heels because our feet were dying haha

the bridesmaids and the groomsmen at the end of the night haha. so tired and playing rock paper scissors with eating sushi as the punishment to help finish up the leftover sushi hahahahaha

we're two days away from the end of May and i'm glad to report that we survived the month of May.
as you can see from the photos above, May was literally bridal showers and weddings nonstop.
and when i wasn't attending one of those, i was working or sleeping.
it was rough rough rough but hey, i survived it and my 2017 wedding season is almost over with just one more wedding to attend in July.
i'm so glad it's a long weekend cause i literally have no plans today besides just roll around in bed, read my book and rest hahaha. 
i seriously have no energy left in me haha. 

besides attending weddings and what not in May, we actually found the time to take a short trip to Seattle as well - during the only weekend we were not at a wedding or bridal shower haha. 
we had been talking about heading up to Seattle for awhile now and decided to just do it haha.
and it so happened that May would work the best (the irony of it all) for all of us so that's what we did.
even though it was such a short weekend trip, it was so fun nonetheless to hang out with Jess again.
the three of us together are the best combination ever haha.
we match each other's traveling style so well and our conversations are seriously like never ending haha. not even kidding.
at the end of the trip we were like omg we need to plan another one again soon!
started our trip bright and early and this was the sunrise on our way to the airport
we had dim sum for breakfast at chinatown and then headed straight over to pike place. that is seriously my favorite place. i could spend all day there! 
the fruits omg. so pretty!
we ate so much. the cheesecake at The Confectional was really good! 
beecher's mac and cheese was definitely on a different level 
it doesn't look too special but the smoothness and creaminess. so good! 
the line for this was forever but was definitely worth it! i got the smoked salmon one and it was fantastic 
at the original starbucks 
the view from there was pretty too!
and of course, we had to visit the gum wall haha. these two were chewing and blowing gum till their cheeks and throats hurt hahaha
we had seafood at ivar's by the waterfront for dinner before heading up to kerry park to admire the Seattle skyline 
our view from the top 
pretty skies before sunset 
it was pretty dang cold though haha 
we stayed till the lights came on
and then went and got ice cream at molly moon's despite freezing from the cold haha
on the second day of our trip, we drove to bellevue in search of good taiwanese food and found it at facing east. the food was really good and i'm glad we decided to go there right as it opened for the day cause it got so crowded! 
 gorgeous flowers at the temple
headed over to the temple since we were in the area and it was beautiful 
enjoying having the sun out since it was kind of cold haha 
went to alki beach before we headed to the airport and just kind of enjoyed the scenery. we also stopped at Spud's for some fish and chips on our way out and it was pretty good! 
we got to the airport pretty early so we had some time to just sit at our gate and chat before having to separate for different flights. it was such a good trip despite it being so short and i can't wait for our next trip! Chicago? Portland? we need to plan haha

so that was basically our May and so far we don't have any big plans for June and that actually makes me kind of excited cause i'm such an ah ma and need so much rest hahaha. 
okay i'm going to go back to resting haha.
ending off with some other photos from May:
Japan has so many kit kat flavors! 
view from the 27th floor penthouse at City Creek 
welcome back dinner for Branon! 
meeting baby Kalia 
I had the day off on Friday (my boss said i worked too much in May) and so Jennifer and I got together to discuss a couple of things for church and ended up chatting while eating for like 4 or 5 hours hahaha. it was so so so fun though and then we even went and got gelato at Sweetaly's after and talked some more haha. love this girl to bits! 
finally got to meet Ezra & Carol's little one Kayla and she is THE cutest! so calm and fun too!
