I’ve been a busy bee!! Apparently a good way not to be too bummed about Nationals is to be so incredibly busy you don’t even have a chance to think about it!
We left early Thursday morning and got to New Jersey mid-day-ish. I was put to work then, and didn’t reallly stop until I got in the car to come home yesterday.
The wedding was very nice. Weddings in general aren’t really my cup of tea, but this one was beautifully personal to the bride and groom. It was in the church the bride grew up in and since her dad is a musician, there was a jazz song in the middle of the ceremony. It was very nice.
The reception was wonderful, too, except I over did myself during the cocktail hour - food wise, not drink wise, and so dancing wasn’t as fun as it would have been on an empty stomach, lol!
The groom (my BIL) is in the Navy, so they did a sword arch when leaving the church, so that was cool. The bride made her own dress (she just graduated from art school) and made all of the bouquets and centerpieces.
The rehearsal dinner (”wedding eve celebration”) was at the In-laws house which meant we worked hard to get it ready for company. The other SIL and I did a lot of cooking. And yesterday there was a brunch at the house before we left for home. I was exhausted!
I slept in obscenely late today.
Anyway, we brought an extra body home with us in the form of the Hubsters cousin (second cousin if you want to get technical) from Australia. He’s been in England for the last 7 months on his gap year (the year between high school and college) so made his way across the Atlantic for the wedding. Now he’s off exploring DC.
So, what did everyone else do this weekend? Did I miss anything good?
