It’s a snowy Sunday at home and since Michael is currently yelling at the Panthers game on tv, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to blog a little bit.
We drove to Charlottesville on Friday in the pouring rain & drove home today in the snow, but it was a trip well worth it. Michael’s childhood friend Ray was marrying his fiancé (who I think he dated for 12 YEARS!) and it was really awesome to be a part of it all. We ate delicious Italian food on Friday night at the rehearsal dinner until I was basically too full to function and just passed out. Waking up with a sore throat on Saturday, I decided to take advantage of the hotel gym and sweat out whatever was trying to kill me (or maybe just make room for lunch because I had my eye on Citizen Burger). Thanks to having friends who are equally obsessed with good food as I am, my friend Shannon suggested ‘the mini’ so we walked down to grab lunch, took a nap, and then hit the gym one more time before the wedding festivities began because you can never burn too many calories before an open bar wedding.
The ceremony was short and sweet and exactly how I like them. I literally had just met the bride & groom 24 hours before the ceremony and I was still crying through the entire thing. I don’t have many photos from last night because they wanted an unplugged ceremony & the reception was pretty dark, but it was a blast and the food was great. Once we got back into the room, I immediately regretted not filling my pockets with mac & cheese. I wish I had gotten pictures of the dessert table with old rustic windows & shutters as decorations, but I was too distracted by making sure I got a slice of cake. And cupcakes. I ended up “catching” the bouquet but only because she threw it and nobody else wanted it so I grabbed it. Hello, why doesn’t anyone want to catch the bouquet? Do you hate your boyfriends? Either way, that thing was mine.
I have some updates on my last post about my wholesome project (including quitting my job! details to come!) but I’ll leave you with this semi-related link here while I nap and wish I had food in the house or at least the desire to go to the grocery store on the day it decides to snow.
