A No Picture Wedding Weekend

Yes, I went to a wedding, wore an awesome dress but didn't take any pictures.

We brought our fabulous camera, but didn't get any pictures of people. #doublefail.

But, it was a wonderful family weekend. We headed to Cincy for a family wedding [missed all the bloggers coming to DC for the marathon, wah] and it was lovely hanging out with everyone. Family weekend's full of love are kind of my favorite!

This weekend I…

… flew solo again because Le Husband left on Wednsday night to get extra family time.

… realized flying solo without booze isn't nearly as fun as with booze.

… tried to finish Miracle but failed, again.

… slept in until 11am on Friday morning. #needed that sleep.

… played with our adorable nephew Friday morning. #beaniebabypileoffun

… ate a delicious fish dinner Friday night.

… watch Despicable Me and finished a book in the extra down time of the evening.

… forgot to grab a snack and went to bed hungry. #goodsleepfail

… visited grandparents at a youth volleyball game Saturday morning. #scaredtobeaparentbecauseofathletics

… relaxed at home until it was time to get ready for the wedding.

… loved how my hair and makeup turned out.


… failed at getting a picture of my dress. Also failed getting a picture of me and Le Husband.

… enjoyed the beautiful ceremony, with adorable commentary from our lil nephew.

… cheered for the newest married couple in the family. #ilovelove

… drank a bazillion cups of coffee to keep from wanting booze at the reception.

… kept telling people it was for Lent and not because I was prego. #theywerentbuyingit #imnot

… was the only girl to get seconds at the buffet. #hungrygirlproblems.

… danced the night away with wonderful family members.

… made it through a wedding 100% compliant, something I wasn't sure I could do. #sadaboutnocake

… slept in on Sunday morning.

… enjoyed a wonderful family Sunday morning breakfast.

… flew home, sat in traffic and waited too long for dinner. #hangryhangrypinky

… unpacked, watched the CAPS game and passed out.

How was your weekend? If you ran in the DC race how did you do?

Ha, the no drinking is bound to bring on pregnancy questions! Hence why I can never hide a pregnancy...even early on!

You looked so pretty!! Wedding weekends are the best, wedding weekends filled with family time are even better!! I dont know how it is with the DC marathon...but I'm hoping you missed out on some of the craziness!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

You looked beautiful! Not having any pictures means you really enjoyed yourself! :) We watched Despicable Me as well. Love that movie!

Nikki said...

Sounds like it was a fabulous weekend! I love weddings!

Kelly Mock said...

We went to a wedding too! And I pretty much only got pictures of the baby! It's insanely hard to get pictures of a ceremony whilst trying to hold back an 8 month old from climbing off your lap and crawling up to the alter to see her daddy! You're hair looked great though! Happy Monday!

Julia said...

You looked beautiful! What we can see of your dress looks really cute! :) Way to go on making it through a wedding sticking to your plan, that would be tough!

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

Love your hair and makeup! So pretty! And haha yes, the second you don't drink in a social setting everyone always assumes your pregnant! That has happened to me so many times!

You look beautiful. Love your hair and makeup. Sounds like it was a great weekend. I was thinking of you this weekend when I got my hair cut. My hairdresser took 2.5 inches off! It's a little shorter than I would have liked but it's just hair it will grow back. Hopefully, soon. LOL.

You look beautiful! Sounds like a wonderful weekend. I always love weddings!

~Dawn~ said...

You look gorgeous...and from what I can see of your dress...BEAUTIFUL!

The Siberian American said...

What I can see of your dress is adorable, lady! I hate not being able to drink at events too because the pregnancy questions never stop! :)

Emily said...

Your hair and makeup came out great!! Sounds like an awesome weekend!

Jessi @ Jessi's Design said...

Whew! What a weekend! You needed me to be your paparazzi for sure! ;) Also, what pics you did get, you looks gorgeous- loved the hair and makeup friend!! xo

JumpingJE said...

I can tell your dress was classic and gorgeous! haha good job on sticking to your lent goals, even if it caused some "questions". You need to sleep in more often!

Rebecca Jo said...

Yay for family wedding weekends. And I'm glad to know that there's someone else on the plant who forgets to take pictures at big events. Ugh, I always do that. Your hair and makeup does look fabulous! You look so old hollywood glamorous! And next time get some booze on the flight ;)

Congrats on the family wedding! I promise Miracle gets better & trust me- I always forget to take pictures!!

Katie Elizabeth said...

You looked beautiful! Sometimes it's refreshing to not worry about taking pictures and just soak up the moment. So glad you had a good time! And Miracle - that's my husbands favorite movie of all time!

Kay R. said...

Your hair and makeup turned out great. Its ok that you didn't take pics, sometimes you just need to be in the moment and seems like you guys did just that for the wedding. Ps flying with no booze really isn't as fun!

Courtney B said...

You are beautiful!! Love the top of your dress ;) Sounds like a wonderful weekend! Sleeping in until 11am?! I don't even remember what that's like!! Soak it up now while you can. Even if you do sleep in until 11 after having a baby, it's only because you were up alllllll night with said baby ;)

Leslie Lukens Martin said...

Love everything about this post...and I'd really like a "sleep in until 11 am" morning of my own! :)

Kristen said...
