Hi guys! Wow, it has been a while since my last post! I have been busy enjoying the good company of all of my family. It was wonderful to have everyone come into town, catch up on everyone’s lives, and just plain have fun.
On Friday, we helped set up everything for the wedding/rehearsal dinner bright and early in the morning. Then once some of the family arrived into town, we headed out to grab a bite to eat at one of my favorite lunchtime places, Carl’s Bar.
This place has the best sandwiches ever! I got a warm whole wheat sandwich with smoked turkey, swiss cheese, spicy brown mustard, and tons of veggies.
Friday night was the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner in which my sister, Jessica, my aunt Kathy, and I all helped set up and serve the dinner. We were pretty much the “catering staff.” :D We even got cute little aprons to wear:

After rehearsal dinner, we headed over to the “after party” (haha) and my uncle, Steve’s, house.
We were pretty tired after the rehearsal dinner though, so I was conked out when we got home.
Saturday was the actual wedding day. It was not until 4, so I made good use of the day and got in a nice run. It feels so amazing to be running again! I felt so renewed and refreshed during and after. Gotta love that runner’s high!
Before we left for the wedding, we snapped a few pics.
Jess, Momma, and I:
The Walmart dress worked out perfectly! I can’t wait to wear the other one now!
The married couple to be:
The wedding was beautiful and being the emotional person that I am, I may or may not have been a tad watery eyed. I loved the wedding colors that they chose: red and lime green. So cute!
We then headed to the reception for some cake!
My crazy cousin from Las Vegas, Jenn, and I:
Steven with my uncle…ummm, did I mention he was tall?
Me with the madre:
After that, we headed over to my uncle Steve’s house, in which the “kids” proceeded to teach the adults how to play beer pong. Oh boy, was that a sight to see…my family is quite crazy though, so they were definitely all for it. I will not scare you with pictures from that event. ;)
Sunday was the lazy day. Everyone slept in and then eventually made it over to the grandparent’s house for a cookout. It was leisurely and very nice to just relax for the evening.
Today everyone is heading back home. It has been a fun weekend and I can’t wait until they all come back again. :)
On the food front, there was not a lot of pics taken. I will back to it soon enough though…especially with my Amazing Grass that should be coming TODAY! And I want to give a shout out to Kristina at Stonyfield for sending me a wonderful package full of coupons, plus an eco-friendly re-usable bag! So definitely expect some great yogurt experimenting in the near future! Yum!
Well, now I have to get ready to head off to workio, but I hope all you wonderful people have a great Tuesday!!
Love, Kristi <3
