This is where things got a little squirrely - I think I have noted (in polite words) how
The limo took us up to the Stone church - and the ceremony went perfectly. The only thing was it started late (I mean isn't that a given?) - so the sun had set before we could take the outdoor pictures that Lissa wanted. But, the church provided a beautiful backdrop for the group pictures. The reception was great, although the tables were a little tightly placed - I was able to sit with some old friends, and that made me so happy. The Best Man, gave this beautiful speech -- - then the MOH opened her mouth - and I was so glad that my husband had went to the bathroom, because what she said - - - was - - - very disrespectful and worded very poorly. But, it ended quick enough, and left everyone going - - - WHAT DID SHE JUST SAY?
We were home by 1130, and in bed by 1am - since it took a long time to take all 37 bobby pins out of my hair.
I am so happy for my friend - she looked gorgeous, and so happy.
Due to another MOH fail, my husband and I went back up to the Stone church to clean up and gather things from the night before. We were there a little early, so we took pictures around the outside of the church, and then cleaned up as quickly as we could. The funny thing is, we knew to bring both of our sedans... because of course - you can't fit everything into one. I love having an economy car for the gas mileage, but when it comes to having to haul, it's kind of a pain in the ass. Thus, another reason we are going to upgrade to a SUV in the near future.
We delivered the rented items back to Hobby Lobby, and then I saw a grown man, walking around in a red Power Rangers unitard. Not joking, I wish I was - I snapped this picture - and I just died laughing. Random and Epic.
After that we picked up Alaska at the house, and went to Klay's parents - because our baby niece was there. She got to meet Alaska for the first time, and Alaska was just so gentle with her. And baby Maggie was in aw of how large Alaska was.
We ended the day with fancy gyros, garlic beets - and never ending Netflix watching
I had vowed to do no housework, due to the fact I was still exhausted from Lissa's wedding, but you know how it is - there is only so much yuck you can allow. So, I compromised with my sloth, and cleaned half of the house. Hahaha. Clean freak problems, am I right?
Alaska got her summer haircut done by a mobile groomer - if you have seen the picture, she got shaved pretty close, which is the subject of mass debate. Some believe this is really bad for double coated dogs, and others just advise you to watch out for over exposure to the sun. Growing up, every summer our Pyrenees got similar haircuts, and they seemed much better in the heat. Today, it got up to 88 degrees, and even with the fans running in the house, it was still 70 stagnant degrees in the upstairs of our home. This will keep Alaska cool in the house humidity while we are at work. The groomer kept her tail all long, so she has this little girly poof, like a pseudo ponytail - it's adorable. And Alaska really seems to love it.
We went out to lunch with our friends - and then relaxed for the rest of the night.
Here we are at Monday - it's about 8p, and I am just finishing up this post. Work was insanely crazy today, and I barely got out on time. But, since it is the evening - that means all I have to do is polish this bad boy up - maybe grab a glass of wine, and get my pajamas on.
How was your weekend?
