Weekend festivities

J, JOE & I went to J's cousin's wedding this weekend. It was in Norfolk, VA. We had a blast but the journey to and from was NOT fun. We spent 8-hours on the road trying to get there on Friday. Needless to say, after 6-hours strapped in a car seat, JOE got very cranky! Then there was the explosive diaper incident that required us to pull over on the side of the road. I now have a whole new appreciation for my sister and her husband who have taken several road trips from GA to MA for the holidays with 3-kids in tow!

Here is JOE on her first road trip. She did GREAT!

The groom's cake was served at the rehearsal dinner. It was quite tasty! That sounds so wrong saying that :-). Oh and to cut up the cake, they beheaded it first. Yeah...not cool. I cringed even knowing it wasn't a real dog.

My loves looking quite handsome and beautiful. I <3 them!!!

The couple and the back of the bride's dress. She looked ABSOLUTELY perfect!

J & I did a reading at the ceremony. We each got roses. This was mine.

My 3rd drink since I got pregnant. First one was on mother's day. Second one was a glass of wine the night of rehearsal dinner and then this one. I had to plan my pumping accordingly. Thankfully, it didn't affect my supply.

I love their wedding colors. It was cream and green. Very pretty. We got seed packets as favors. A pretty green idea! Love it!

Beautiful and tasty cake! I loved the "We Do" love birds. Very sweet. 

Brothers. J & his brother.

The view from our room. There was a mall right around the corner. Yes...we visited :-).

It was a fun wedding but more than that, J & I felt really honored to have participated in their wedding ceremony. We truly wish them the best and look forward to many more future celebrations with them as they eventually build their family.
I hope you had a lovely weekend as well. 


  1. That's awesome that she did so well on such a long road trip.

    I wouldn't have been able to eat the groom's cake, lol.

    Looks like a gorgeous wedding!

    Hubby and JOE looked great! Just missing you in these pictures :)

    1. Lol...I know. I didn't like my turkey arms in the pics so I decided not to post them and instead focus on losing weight :-).

  2. Love road trips and what a great reason to take one!! Glad JOE did so well on her first one!!

  3. What a fun weekend. So glad that JOE did a good job. Such a big girl

    Like Faith said where is a pic of you at this wedding. You have to get from behind the camera sometimes ;)

    1. She sure is growing up fast! I did take some pics. Just didn't like the way I looked. Now i have to get serious about losing weight asap!
