Just Another Manic Monday

Ok, well, this weekend was great! A little hectic and some drama, but overall, wonderful. KD's wedding was gorgeous. I don't even have words to describe it (and would you believe it, I'm going to have to try, cause I did not get a single picture. Shame on me). They got married in the garden of a beautiful manor in Mississippi. It was dusk, candles lit the way down the aisle, and each bridesmaid carried a wrought iron and amber-colored glass lantern. It was raining, not like a torrential down-pour, but big plops every so often. Her dress was perfectly her. The whole thing was absolutely magical. I can't think of a better way to describe it.
The reception was in the manor as well as out in the garden. There was a beautiful gazebo with twinkle lights and vintage fabric hangings set up for dancing. It was perfect.
Anyway, KD and Justin went strait from the reception to New Orleans where they hopped a plane for NY where they now reside (YAY, another friend up there :)). And, one of her bridesmaids is moving to DC in a couple weeks, so I'm hoping to get to know her a little better.
So that was the wedding, it made for a long day (the drive was 3.5 hours one-way, and I went there and back on Saturday), but it was oh so worth it. It's kinda funny, I never realize how much I miss KD until I see her, and then I can't imagine why I haven't spoken to her in so long, you know? I'm hoping to change that.
Sunday, a bunch of Josh's (and my) friends came over for BBQ. His friend Daryl is a grill-master, so the food was amazing. Plus, it was the last time that Josh is going to really get to hang out with any of these people, so we really wanted to have a little party.
Daryl and his wife Holly have a puppy named Roxy, so they brought her over to play with the boys. Josh's friends Alison and Fred brought over Titus (their min-pin puppy), so the night was interrupted randomly with puppies playing, running, and barking.
Overall, it was a good weekend :) Long, but good. The end :)

P.S. Thank you all so much for your kind words :) You made me blush! I'm really into gifts, not just getting a good one, but getting a perfect one and making the package itself a part of that. I was really happy with the way this one turned out :)
