Flavors to Follow: Peach

Hello Summer!  And by hello, I really mean geez it’s HOT out, but I LOVE it!  🙂  This past week has brought on hot, humid, 90 degree weather out here in Kansas City, has it been the same for you?  Well, this weekend I will be off again to another wedding, this time to…

The City of Love – San Francisco

I couldn’t be more excited to be attending my dear friend Eafong’s wedding this weekend.  The story of how she met her fiance really proves that great things can happen when you least expect it… basically she had just gotten back from a three month business trip in Australia and was pretty exhausted.  But my other friend was throwing a vampire party and I felt the need to drag her along.  When I called her the night of the party to come out, she used the fact that she didn’t know what to wear to try to get out of coming with me.  I just told her to throw on some black clothes and that I’d pick her up at 8PM, which she finally agreed to.  🙂  Few hours into the party and I kept seeing her with this guy and I wasn’t sure if she wanted to be with him or not.  As we left the party, I asked her “Are you okay???”  because I wasn’t sure if he was a creepster or a nice guy.  Little did I know that they had already exchanged numbers and planned to have brunch the next day…. and really, the rest is history!  I’m sad that she’ll be moving away from Kansas City though, because these past five years wouldn’t have been the same without her, but I am really happy that she found her true love and gets to be with him.  🙂  Congrats Eafong + Matt!

So in honor of their upcoming navy and peach wedding – I’ve gathered together a summery peach board for you all!

    This is such a sweet story Sandy, I will have to remember to go the next vampire party I’m invited to 🙂 I’m keeping fingers crossed that no plans come up for the weekend–I just want to be lazy!

    I’m celebrating with my bff this weekend… she’s getting married tomorrow! What a great weekend to celebrate love!

    How funny they met at a vampire party! That’s so cute and definitely unexpected — I love it.
    It’s really quite hot and humid here in NJ too. Finally feels like summer. It was so cool and dry in San Diego. The difference between the two places is really startling.
    Have a fantastic weekend and a fun time at the wedding, Sandy!

    Oh what a fun story!! And, have fun in SF! I *love* that city. 🙂

    This weekend I’m hoping to try out the cutest little mini-donut maker that a friend sent me. YUM. Maybe I should make some PEACH donuts, hee hee! 🙂

  12. June 25, 2010 / 1:19 pm

    Have so much fun!! I will wave to you from another part of the city. Hopefully on another trip we can meet up!

    Aww! You were the reason behind this unintentional hookup!! 🙂 I love those too. One of my best friends got to know her present boyfriend through me. He used to have a crush on me too, but I obviously was already madly in love with somebody else (my husband now of course!). My best friend didn’t mind it at all that he used to have a crush on me then moved on to her because they are very much in love right now.

    This weekend? I’m going to a wedding too!!! This couple met online. He’s in the air force, and she’s a nurse. They kind of reminds me of a 40’s set movie I saw…. minus the internet!
