Oh. Ow. Hello from San Diego friends! I'm currently laying in the fetal position trying to survive one of the cruelest hangovers I've ever encountered. That being said, I bet you can tell the wedding was a huge success. 

Itching to see my Maid of Honor speech? Here it is, as promised. I WAS SO INCREDIBLY NERVOUS! It's an honor to be able to celebrate these two people. I really do love them.

We came, we loved, we conquered.

This wedding had everything. Good food, great drinks, amazing people, a fun DJ and a killer atmosphere. I feel like I got hit by a bus so I am going to make this short and sweet. The wedding was devastatingly beautiful. Raven and Tom really know how to party (and how to photograph like champions.)

My best friends are so beautiful.

How cool is this welcome sign Tom made?

Raven and Tom got engaged in front of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland so Disney was a theme strewn throughout the wedding. (Can you spy the Haunted Mansion font?)

And how amazing are these escort cards? Raven did a beautiful job incorporating Disneyland in an elegant and innovative way.

The tables each were a different Disneyland ride and had a corresponding fastpass.

Their family friend did all the flowers for the wedding and they were stunning.

INCREDIBLE.

INCREDIBLE.

When I was walking down the aisle I looked over to wink at my family and spy my mother licking her fingers. She brought the Doritos to the wedding. I mean think about it, we eat candy during a movie why not snack during a wedding? I was cracking up.

Stealthy mommy.

Before we entered the reception we of course needed to take the obligatory selfie.

All teeth.

Just being a girl here was my entrance.

I dropped it and then it exploded, just in case you were wondering.

And then it was time to boogie boogie. My GM and Poppy came and were absolutely adorable getting down and dirty to some Iggy Azalea. They are seriously the best ever. 

Doesn't get much cuter than that.

We got turnt. Up. Y'all.

And then there was this morning. Probably the roughest car ride I've ever endured. And I definitely strained my neck dancing like Beyonce last night...How does Beyonce do it? I think she is a wizard because I have whip lash.

Well, I am headed back to New York tomorrow. It was an amazing wedding and we lived up to our bridesmaid stereotypes. No regrets from this girl, except maybe the lack of water...I regret the lack of water... BUT we are back on schedule tomorrow. Anyone race this weekend? How'd it go!?! Remember to send those selfies #RunSelfieRepeat or email runselfierepeat@gmail.com

Until tomorrow, To Once Upon A Time.

My name is Kelly Roberts and I am a 25 year old New York City resident. My story made headlines when I took selfies with hot guys “hottie hunting” my way through the NYC Half Marathon. My blog, www.RunSelfieRepeat.com is bursting with humor and personal stories that lend an insight into the world of running and lead you to believe that just about anyone, regardless of their fitness level, can and should fall in love with running. Though currently an avid runner, I never would have predicted I would run marathons. I was the kid who used to hide in the bushes or play dead to get out of running the mile in school. I HATED running. But running has given me a purpose. It’s shown me that I really am limitless. In the two years since I started running, I’ve run multiple half marathons, 10ks, and 5ks, and two full marathons. My mission is to inspire others to find the courage to say yes to themselves all the while making them laugh hysterically because laughing is the solution to everything.
