Wedding Weekend We-Cap

'Ello lovies, how was your long weekend?

Did you say thank you?!?
[i hope so!]

My weekend was super duper filled and crazy fun.

Weddings, pools, bbqs, National Cemetery and family togetherness.

Phew, I'm tired just typing that sentence.

Let's get we-capping shall we?

Saturday the whole Brady bunch was invited to a family friend's wedding in Pennsylvania.

Sportyspice and I were even asked to hand out programs, so honored!

We were up bright and early Saturday morning to prep hair and then we hit the road on schedule to arrive 45 minutes early to finish primping, change and head to the church to hand out programs.

Then we hit an hour of unexpected traffic!

Ruh-roh!

All of that extra primp time, out the window.
YIKES!

All of a sudden the Brady Mobile became the Brady salon, because Sportyspice and I pinned, unpinned, hairsprayed, makeup applied, repinned, rehairsprayed and did everything but change in the car. We reached the hotel with just enough time to DASH into the communal restroom change in to our dresses, grab the other program friend and speed to the church.

Thankfully we got there on time and cleaned up PRETTY well if I do say so myself,
and I DO!

Sportyspice takes her car wearing clothes seriously!
Buzz, your girl friend, WOOF ;)!
Purdiful curls from said get-up!
Bad hair day ended up working pretty well.
When the bride asked the two B ladies to hand out programs at her wedding, I told her we would GLADLY accept, as long as we could wear CLOWN noses.

It became a running joke whenever the wedding was brought up.

GUESS who brought clown noses to the party?

And sent THIS to picture to the bride?!?
Just WAIT for the wedding picture, amazeballs!
In case you were wondering, "Where the heck is Babyspice", don't worry, she was IN THE WEDDING!

And looked stunning don't you think?!!?
Gorgeous bride and GORGEOUS sissy
So happy her best friend got MARRIED!
After a fabulous wedding ceremony it was back to the hotel and a quick shuttle ride to the country club for cocktails and chats before the reception.

The weather was blindingly sunny in the afternoon but by early evening a cool cloudy cover rolled in and offered some much needed relief.

The setting was gorgeous and the family had a great time hanging out.
New favorite sissy shot?!!? I think so!
Cocktail hour was a great time, but everyone was ANXIOUS to start the party. Because, we KNEW this was going to be a fabulous party.
CONGRATS MR and MRS!
The first dances were precious and the food was delish.

OUR TABLE [table 1] was the BEST table to sit at hands down.

We got the guys at the table to wear flowers in their hair
and drink 'Dirty Shirleys'.

Yeah, we have skiiiiiiiiiiiills!

The DJ was faboo and the party was HOPPIN' the entire night.

I enjoyed QUITE a few champagnes [yum] and had a blast dancing with the family, bride, groom and various other friends.

Then came the token garter/bouquet toss.

And wouldn't you know, yours truly CAUGHT the bouquet!
My first bouquet EEEEEK!

I'm taking this as a good sign of luck and moving right along, no pressure ;)!

The rest of the night was awesome and we partied late into the night.
Shuttle ride home.
Sunday was spent eating brunch with the bride and family, then a quick trip home with no traffic, hooray!

Even though we were all exhausted, we HAD to go to the pool, play some tennis and catch a few rays. It was much needed detox time and then PIZZA at the pool, YAY!

Monday was a well needed day off from work, although mine started early taking the bride and groom to the airport for their honeymoon. It was wwwwaaaaaaaaaaay early, but I love those two so no sweat. I came home, took a nap and then Sportyspice and I went to Arlington National Cemetery to visit my friend Shane's grave.

The place was PACKED [so awesome/so sad] and there were SOOO many people around. It gave me a good feeling to know that people were remembering the REASON for the day off work.

After a humbling and cryfilled visit, she and I headed home to a neighbors cookout then back to the pool for some relaxation.

I was straight WORN out by the end of the day and hopped into bed around 8pm.

NO JOKE!

This morning I woke up refreshed and ready to face the week.

All in all it was a fabulous weekend with wonderful people. I wish there were MORE 3 day weekend in the year don't you?!!?
