I was privileged this weekend to entertain a guest by the name of Alison this weekend. We worked together at a small, hick-ish grocery store throughout high school and she’s always been someone who makes me laugh uncontrollably. Most notably in high school while working, we stuffed her into one of a trash bin that one may think no grown human being could fit into, but Ali being somewhat a contortionist, was able to squeeze into one. From there, I would go tell managers on duty that “there’s something wrong with the garbage door, can you please check it?” And they would stick their hand into the open and Ali would grab onto their hand. I bet you every single one of the people we convinced to “help with the trash bin” pooped themselves after that. 

Anyways, Ali came to visit and to shop for the perfect outfit for her engagement session at the end of the month. A group of us are heading to Cedar Point and she and her fiance Tim are getting their photos done at the actual amusement park. So fitting for this couple. Well, Ali was able to find an adorable dress and pair of nude wedges and as we shopped, I pulled her aside to photograph her because she’s just too dang cute.

    I love her outfit! I usually don't care much for distressed jeans, but these are fabulous!
    The trash bin anecdote reminds me of the trashcompacter monster from Star Wars, haha.

    I find your stories about your friends hilarious, often because I have similar stories with my friends.

    For example my tiny friend Alice, hid in a large box in the basement of our work. And kept yelling, "I'm not getting out until we scare someone!" To which I fell on the floor laughing until she finally came out.
