Wedding Weekend Wrap-Up!

Monday morning is back already and I’m like #wheresthecoffee??  I think I am just in a constant “exhausted” state of mind lately and am looking forward to A WEEKEND HOME next weekend!! You read that right.. a WHOLE weekend at home with the hubs with NO plans this coming weekend.  I promise that if you ask me and the hubs to do anything, our response will be “NOOOOOOOOO!!!” so don’t even try!  At least for now.. we’re just tired out!

Not your “traditional” wedding gift wrap!  Life is better with pink, monograms and flamingos πŸ™‚

Anyway back to the good stuff.. Our weekend!  This past weekend we were able to have a little bit of “fun” time at home and it was glorious!  The hubs and I signed up for a Costco membership on Friday #whatthewhat?? And now I’ve already picked out a new couch, bed, headboard, all the food…. let’s see what else?!  Has anyone ever bought their furniture at Costco?! Such great prices!  But in reality, we walked out with golf balls for our first trip. Who are we??

The hubs and I were able to enjoy our first Happy Hour of the summer together!  Of course it involved queso and pineapple/malibu drinks πŸ™‚

After happy hour, we set out to 2nd Swing for the hubs to purchase a new wedge.. another new club! Then headed to HOM furniture to look at couches because it’s just time to replace our red beast! πŸ™‚

Saturday AM we woke REALL early.. I mean like 5 am to shower and get ready to head to EC for my cousin’s wedding!  The hubs met up with some work buddies and golfed the morning away.. I set out to have my Bridesmaid dress hemmed for our friends’ wedding next month!

The wedding was at Dixon’s Apple Orchard which is a newer wedding venue and it’s just darling!!

The couple got married outside… and the bride made a “grand entrance” coming in on a horse-drawn wagon!  She then made her entrance to see her Groom through the doors above!

 We were transported by tractor as the setting was amongst the apples πŸ™‚

On the tractor ride πŸ™‚ Excuse the blurriness!

After the ceremony, cocktail hour started and we were all thrilled πŸ™‚ #givemesomemalibu #andpineapple #orilltakewine

The inside was decorated beautifully and had a few “separate” rooms which had the Rustic theme flowing through and through!

It was so nice to be able to celebrate together!  They also had a “food truck” making wood fire stone pizza for their dinner!  It was yummy!! And it was so different which was awesome to see as well! The hubs and I LOVE food trucks πŸ™‚

the beautiful bride!

We were missing some family members (which is always sad!!) but most were there and it was great to get some updated pictures!

The girl cousins on my Mama’s side; missing 2 more!

It’s always important to make time for family!  Even on days when we’re exhausted from traveling 12 weeks out of the summer months.. and we haven’t had 1 weekend home together (or even 1 weekend for just us) since the beginning of May.. we’ll still always make time for family! #becausepriorities


My not so little cousins!


Love this cute little Mama of mine! πŸ™‚

I spoke a while back about my Mama’s side of the family and some of the issues going on and somehow we’ve been able to come together and become a family again! It’s truly amazing how much I enjoyed our family this past weekend!  It was back to how things were when I was growing up and to how things should be!  Just wished my siblings could have joined in on the fun (both had other things going on previously!).


Myself and the Bride!

I will also tell you.. this cousin of mine is quiet.. I mean BEYOND quiet!! She’s a few months younger than me and growing up she’s never been a talker- which I never understood because I can talk enough for myself and 5 other people πŸ™‚  Lately, she’s come out of her shell a little bit and it’s been fabulous!! I’m looking forward to more things with her and that sweet Husband of hers!

I am about to get real with y’all now.. my two cousins have little babies…

Easton (4 months); Corbin (8 months)

And can I just say.. the hubs and I have major baby fever after this weekend!! Seriously… the hubs and I have been “trying” and cannot wait until we can add a little babe to our crazy mix!!

We danced the night away with a few more drinks and it was just wonderful!  The hubs and I had a lot of fun but we are ready for a weekend home together next weekend!

And on a different note.. i’m ready for the Lilly After Sale Party!! I was thinking it would be today, BUT since they didn’t send anything out this weekend (usually only give about 2 days notice), i’m thinking it will be next weekend! Keep your eyes and ears open and I will give you the deets once I find them out πŸ™‚

Hope you all had a great weekend and I’ll see you later this week!! πŸ™‚
