Weekend Whereabouts and Where Are The Weekends Going?!

A whirlwind wedding weekend.

Try saying that one five times fast! I couldn't think of a better way to describe this past weekend. Actually, that's not true. If I really wanted to convey just how my weekend was spent, it would need to include words such as, "breathtaking," "beautiful," and "amazing."

After a ten hour drive North, a drive that must've felt like eons for my husband, constantly catering to his 32 week pregnant wife's every whim, we safely and eagerly arrived in Cape Cod, Massachusetts for the nuptials of one of my dearest and bestest college friends.

In front of 218 guests, J&M gracefully tied the knot in one of the prettiest settings and ceremonies I've ever been privy too. And I was blessed to stand by her side and witness it all. Each and every detail, down to the slightest of details, echoed this couple to a "T." From the antique hydrangeas in the centerpieces, to the light blues and navy's used throughout the wedding, to the music chosen to play during Mass, straight from the church walls of Villanova, to the monogrammed koozie's tucked neatly into each guests' place setting.. This wedding couldn't have been more "J&M." It was perfect.

And what a gorgeous bride! I always knew I had pretty friends.. but J? You looked gorgeous, darling! Absolutely gorgeous!

Although this experience has me vowing never to be an intergral part of anyone's wedding at 32 weeks pregnant, I'm so happy I was able to be there for J on her special day. And I couldn't thank her enough for worrying about me as much as she did. Despite it being her day, she wouldn't let a second go by without first checking on me and making sure my bridesmaid dress hadn't cut off the circulation to my lower half. J, you're the best friend a girl could ask for!

Here are just a few pictures that I snapped from our wedding weekend on The Cape:

the new Mr. & Mrs!

and the party...

(yep, I'm the one smuggling a watermelon
underneath my bridesmaid dress!)

And what a party it was!

As if time doesn't already feel as if it's slipping by too quickly to grasp, the next two weekends promise to be just as whirlwind-y! How's that for proper grammar? This coming weekend, Hubs and I will be spending some quality time away, quite possibly for the last time as just a family of three (can't forget Sheepie) and the following weekend, I'll be celebrating the soon-to-be birth of Baby Boy at my Baby Shower! I'm undoubtedly so blessed to have such incredible women in my life who will be hosting this shower and I can't wait to celebrate with them! I've already had a couple of sneak peaks and let's just say, I am ONE lucky Momma!

Stay tuned for updates, pictures and posts!
