weekend recap: wedding season

A couple of weekends ago, 
D and I drove to South Carolina to attend the wedding of one of our favorite couples ... 
Cate and Barrett. 

Cate and Barrett are two of the founding members of Wine Club. 
{posts about that here & here}

It was a beautiful wedding held in downtown Beaufort, SC.  
The ceremony was at the Beaufort Inn's Garden. 
And then the reception was at the Old Bay Marketplace Loft. 
Everything was just gorgeous! 
It was windy on the rooftop
Cate and Barrett asked D to perform their first dance song. 
He was honored to sing that special song for them. 
He did an acoustic version of Hold My Hand by Hootie & The Blowfish. 
And he did a spectacular job! 
{Y'all, I get to marry him!}

The band liked his performance so much that they pulled him up on stage later in the evening to sing with them. 
It really does not take much arm-twisting to get D up on a stage. 
He is a natural performer.

After all the excitement on Saturday, 
D and I did a bunch of nothing on Sunday. 
My introverted brain needed to recharge. 
I am so thankful for a guy that just gets that about me! 

Hope y'all had a fabulous weekend.

weekend recap: july 4th edition

As many of my long-time readers know, 
July 4th is my favorite day of the year. 
You can find previous recaps here, here, & here

This weekend started on Thursday for me. 
Yay for four day weekends! 

Fourth of July mani

Thursday, we celebrated D's little sister, M's birthday. 
She turned 19 on Thursday. 

Friday, I had lunch with my two best friends. 
It was the first time all three of us were able to get together since Christmas. 
So, it was way overdue. 
We definitely talked wedding plans. 
I miss seeing these two every day! 

Friday night, D and I had supper with his parents & sister; 
then we watched fireworks in a neighboring town. 

Saturday, we spent the day at the pool with D's extended family. 
We ate way to much but it was a great, relaxing day. 
Outfit of the day 

I am sometimes called the "kid whisperer." ;)

I baked snickerdoodles & a cheesecake. 
Both were a hit with the crowd, 
we only had one piece of cheesecake leftover. 

Isn't my niece the cutest?!

Saturday night, we went and watched our town's fireworks show. 
They did a really great job this year. 
It was an excellent show. 

Sunday, we had supper with D's family on his dad's side. 

Overall, it was such a fabulous weekend. 
It definitely lived up to previous year's Fourth weekends. 

How did y'all celebrate the Fourth? 
For my non-American readers, I hope y'all still had a great weekend too. :D
