I'm bending my "anti-weekend recaps" rule and posting a few
hundred pictures of C's Baptism this past weekend. I mean, it was a pretty darn good party and a beautiful celebration, if I do say so myself!
My dress, although not a bedazzled poly-blend of spandex, was a hit. There were no brawls and only a few fist pumps. And the best news? We will not be featured on TLC's next big hit, "Redneck Backyard BBQ!" Whew. Everything came together just as I had anticipated, despite the handful of nervous breakdowns I was on the verge of having during the days leading up to the party.
And? Only one dog needed Benadryl. Oh, I failed to mention that my parent's dog is neurotic? Ha. Slight oversight. Well, thanks to The Benadryl
and half a beer The Husband slipped him, Hurley enjoyed the company, too.
Up first? Standard front yard family pictures:
My brother, Uncle Woobs and his girlfriend.
Aunts and Uncles all around!
Next Up? Church. Which, if I may interject, WHY is the lighting so awful?
Oh, you know. Just hamming it up...
Paying close attention? Not really. Trying to keep C from lunging out of my arms and into the baptismal "jacuzzi?" Definitely. The kid wanted to go swimming in the worst way!
This picture is for The Shabby Princess.
The best shot I could find of the JCrew dress and glitter wedges!
Meet The Newest Catholic, modeling on the steps of the altar. Awesome:
And finally, the party deets:
Yes, I did buy 50 sunflowers. And yes, I did arrange them myself.
Happy Tuesday, Loyals!
Now, if you'll excuse me I'm going to try and kick myself out of this post-party funk that I can't seem to shake! Hands down I could sleep until next Thursday if only C would let me! Oh wait, what's that you say? Carter's First Birthday is a month away? Right. Forget that I ever mentioned sleep...
