Bella was excited to see grandma and grandpa

It’s so nice only driving a little over an hour to get there instead of over 2.5! I had one request, that on the way in we stop and get a sno-ball! (Yes, that IS what we call them in the New Orleans area, don’t make fun, it’s not nice). I got wedding cake with condensed milk YUM!!!

Saturday morning we woke and went for a three mile run. it was a great run! It was one of those rare ones where you feel really good and happy and you could just keep going and you smile the whole time. I did 3 miles in 28 minutes and didn’t really push till the last mile. I was a happy girl.

We had to hurry and get ready because we are going to a WEDDING for my cousin. Remember the bridal tea I went to awhile back? Well, now it was wedding time!

yes my hair looks straight out of the 80’s. I blow dried it straight, but didn’t have time to tame it…

Not really sure…I think I make that face a lot.One thing I do know is dad has a wide array of sunglasses. Dad, we are inside. No need for them just yet.

The five of us (my sister came with us) rode together to the plantation. (The ceremony and reception were at a plantation). The ceremony outside under a pavilion type thing.

Everything was beautiful, very sweet ceremony. After it was over we went inside and found a table. They had a buffet and servers came with pass around food, and we were strategically positioned right by the kitchen so we got a ton of food, and it was all amazing. I ate so much! (Glad I ran that morning!)

Mother son dance. I was crying! Josh is actually my second cousin, and his mom Wendy is my first cousin. He is her only child, and their dance/song was so sweet!

Daniella and her mom danced to Carrie Underwood’s “Mama’s song” and I cried so much I forgot to take pictures! It was SO SWEET! If you have never heard the song, go take a listen, or at least check out the lyrics.

Ok, now as promised. We did a little dancing…I must say I look QUITE ridiculous on the dance floor. As does my poor mother. Bless her heart.

yummy cookies they gave as favors.

We had a blast, ate way too much, and danced the afternoon away.

 Sunday morning we just relaxed and had an early lunch together so Bobby and I could get back home and get some things done before the week began. Bobby and I picked blackberries last night and I made a cobbler. Recipe to come later, it was so good! I was glad I got to see my mom on Mother’s Day! All around great weekend!

QOTD: Did you get to see your mom yesterday?

  1. Sounds like a fun weekend. I spent mine coaching a Middle School track meet across the state, making awesome banana stuffed French toast (if I do say so myself) for my wife and “Team Mom”, Running Betty, then clearing out the 5 inch thick layer of oak leaves and pollen in the side yard. I didn’t get to see my mom, but she’s flying down next week!

    • ah how I don’t really miss track meets. Way too much standing around waiting for your events lol! hope you have fun with your mom next week!

  2. Oh I love, love weddings. So fun to be a part of a couple starting their life together.

  3. Hahahaha! That face is hilarious! And love your dress!

  4. Love all the pictures ! The reception looks like so much fun! :0) Glad you were able to spend the weekend with your parents!

    I LOVE that Carrie Underwood song. Makes me cry every.single.time. And now that I have a daughter…forget it. I’m a hot mess listening to it! I did get to see my mom yesterday. We don’t like picking between mothers on Mother’s Day, so we had both families at our house for a cookout. I enjoyed my first Mother’s Day too.

  6. Sounds like a wonderful time!!

  7. It sounds like you had a great weekend! I love visiting plantations, and it’d be so fabulous to have a wedding at one:)

  8. Looks like a blast! I’ve only been to one wedding but it was so much fun!
