Might be the end of the day, but still posting
Happy weekend, all!
Love, Chunky Legs
Despite having baby fever, the inner bride in me hasn’t died. I still notice new engagement rings and squeal with soon-to-be brides. (As a matter of fact, the other day at Starbucks I noticed one of the girls who worked there had something sparkly on her finger. I think I surprised her when I asked, “Is that new? Congratulations!”, but she was pretty darn excited to show it to me.)
So I’m so excited to be attending the wedding tomorrow of the very first friend I made in college — my freshman roommate, Katie. We lived together all through college and she’s one of the happiest, quirkiest and funniest girls I know. I am so happy for her and cannot wait to share in her day.
Rocking it at my wedding.
With all the college roomies. (We’ll miss you tomorrow, Elle!)
Yes, even with just a one hour time change. Sleeeeepy.
So today, I leave you with my favorite picture of the weekend.
He even made a rental tux look good.
Something more coherent tomorrow, I promise.
Since the wake and funeral for the aforementioned fireman is today and tomorrow, there will be some tears this holiday weekend. Which is why I’m so thankful that one of my college roommates is heading to RI to spend it with me.
V is a riot (seen here emotional while coming out of the church at our wedding. Love this pic.) and I’m so looking forward to laughing, talking, going to the fireworks and everything else that comes with a great visit. Can’t wait to see you, V!
Happy 4th everyone!
I had my cake…
…and I ate it too.
An entire week with my litte sister. She’s looking forward to making fun of me during the Shred.
What day is it? Is it Monday? I have no idea. I feel like I had an endless weekend so now my days are messed up.
I spent the entire weekend in the sun. Yesterday our little state climbed past 90 degrees and I know some of you have already been basking in the pre-summer weather but not us. The one downside of living so close to the ocean is ocean air, which means while everyone else is getting 75 degree temps, we get 60s with wind until May.
So you can imagine how wonderful this weekend was. Except for getting bit by a gnat. Did you know gnats bite? I didn’t. Until my hand swelled up like a baseball. Stupid gnat.
In lieu of any fascinating stories, some of you asked to see some more professional wedding pictures. I haven’t posted a ton, mostly because it’s hard to choose favorites from almost 1,000 shots. But the only other story I’ve got is how my husband (who tans nicely) didn’t listen to his wife (who burns quickly) and didn’t wear sunscreen is first few hours working in the yard. We’ll keep the “I told you so’s” to a minimum this morning.
Another beach shot…I think we were looking at our venue. (PS- to the person who asked if I was brave enough to walk on frost — no frost, darling. Just sand. It was a pretty warm October day. Also, if you missed it in the last post, Michael is stopping me from stepping in dog poo on the beach. Love, I tell ya.)
The bridal party. By far some of my favorite people in the entire world.
I’ll post a few more during the week!
Have you ever noticed that a visit home has restorative powers? I’ve been on edge for about, oh, 10 weeks now and was tired of all things Rhode Island. So when the opportunity to go home to New York the same time my sister was appeared, I jumped on it.
The drive is 3.5 hours and while not short, it’s not too long either. It gave me just enough time to clear my head and remember our wedding as I sung along with the CDs the DJ gave us after the wedding.
The weekend was just…so nice. Shopping, chatting and snuggling with my mom, laughing and watching old home movies with my sister, looking at childhood artwork and catching up with my dad.
Though too quick as always, the weekend refreshed and rejuvenated me. My spirit feels renewed and lifted.
I always get a little sad on the way back home, knowing that it will be a least a few months before I see them all again. But as I crossed the roads through New York, Connecticut and finally Rhode Island this morning, I realized I’m lucky to have them all within reach.
Proof I love my husband…
Proof he loves me…
The fact that the mall is walking distance from the convention center was not lost on me. The fact that a Le Creuset purchase meant lots of yummy meals was not lost on him. We work well, he and I.
Now, who’s got some recipes I can make in it?
