This past weekend Roo and I went to his cousin’s wedding on the Upper East Side of NYC. To say it was held at a spectacular venue is an understatement. Roo could not stop making jokes about us being in Hogwarts. No really, the place. is. insane. Like, where’s the owlery?
The whole day was a whirlwind of constantly looking up, being in awe of the intricate stone work, and tugging uncomfortably at my off-the-rack black dress as I walked by girls in Manolos and Prada. Sometimes I wish I could go in my leggings and apron everywhere. What? The apron is from Etsy. Respect.
I promised Roo I wouldn’t write about the food, but I did take notes during the reception. On what? The music of course, as I loved the variety of good ol’ songs that were being played throughout the night. What gets people moving on the dance floor? Oldies. Fact.
Who carries around a notepad and pen around with them at a wedding? This girl. Notepads are so the next, “bringing a camera” to a wedding. We’re getting old fashioned in these parts. And by parts, I mean it was stuffed in my coat pocket along with my Burts Bees and three hair elastics, because that’s how I roll.
And being one with lack of rhythm, I greatly appreciated tunes like “The Twist,” and “Sweet Caroline,” as all I had to do was shuffle my feet around or raise my hands in the air, singing along. That, and an open bar helped. Ok, the latter helped a lot.
Hopefully you can move around in your kitchen, absolutely uninhibited, as no one will be watching you “shuffle” and prep veg at the same time. Well, at least that’s what I thought when I listened to this when making dinner tonight. I’m 99% sure I heard Roo snicker as I started singing along to “Like A Prayer.” But really, who doesn’t like, “Like A Prayer?” Oh that’s right, communists.
