So, it’s been a month and a half since my last blog post. Life has been absolutely nuts since the end of June. Actually, as my blog posting shows, the past year has been crazy!
At the end of June, June 28th to be exact, Fred and I tied the knot. It was a whirlwind of a weekend to be sure! My daughter and my best friend flew in from Minnesota. What a treat to have them both here. I was sad that my second daughter wasn’t able to make it. The ladies stayed at my parents for the four days they were here. The boys and I went to join them for a couple of days. It. Was. Awesome!
On June 29th, we headed over to Annapolis, Maryland where Fred and I said our “IDos” in front of friends and family. I’m so thankful it was a beautiful day on the docks. Getting married in Historic Maryland, by the water, was a gorgeous choice for location! I knew our room above Federal House was going to fit our small group perfectly.
Our wedding was super relaxed, and just such a chill day. We had a good time with good food. I have to say, I loved being surrounded by my family. I’ve always known how fun they were, but I have to tell you, when you have us all together, we’re the loudest bunch in the room. We laughed hard, and made some great memories!
I have to give a shout out to my dad for taking a ton of pictures at the wedding. In fact, just today I finally went through them. He even took a few videos, but I haven’t had a chance to view them yet. He was my photographer, and I can’t thank him enough! Love you dad!
LP (my bestie) showed up and made sure everything was finished. We went and had our nails done thanks to my mom! While I was still getting my nails done, LP and Baby did some running around, and when they came back to get me, she had flowers to make for décor and for me to hold. I totally wasn’t planning on having a bouquet, and here she is, surprising me.
Mom, what can I say about everything she did to make sure I had a beautiful wedding. She got the boys shirts and ties (Baby added her touch with the suspenders). She made sure the ladies and I were pampered with our nails getting done, and then Sunday before the wedding she set it up for Bill, our hairdresser, to do everyone’s hair. She wanted to do tons more, but I knew she’d empty her account if we let her. I actually had to do stuff behind her back so she couldn’t pay for it. I love that woman! Thank you mom!
For me, the pièce de résistance was our wedding cake. It was apropos that it was the shape of a Twitter bird and had our wedding hashtag! And no, that image wasn’t on the cake. It’s just my watermark. lol
I’m hoping I’ll be able to get back in here to blog more regularly. It “should” be easier now that Fred and I are in the same home, not always having to GO somewhere to spend time together. I just have to organize my time better. I’ve been spending too much time sitting around catching up on tv programs. I need to catch up on my blogging! I certainly have missed it.
My next post will be about our super fun trip back to Minnesota!
How has your summer been? Have you done anything exciting?
