Wedding Snapshots & A Relaxing Weekend

It’s so weird to be back at work today! After working 3 days last week, it’s definitely odd to be back in the office, but there are bills to be paid! I had such a great weekend, which started Wednesday night with my girls Lindsay and Nichole. We enjoyed a girl’s night at a local pond, where we talked about life while walking several miles. When we reached the turn around point, we spent a good 20 minutes having fun and taking pictures.

After a quick workout Friday morning, I rewrote my Maid of Honor Speech, and then left around 10:40 for Atkinson Resort and Country Club. Luckily this was only a 30 minute drive for me, because I made the drive there 3 times in 24 hours.

Lisha’s bouquet was absolutely stunning, and each rose had a crystal in it.

Her florist told her that she would make a necklace with the crystals after the wedding. Her reaction was priceless!

We were in the bridal suite from about 11 until 5:30, when the wedding officially started. We are all ready to go!

Best friends for 11 years all because she locked her keys in her car. Lisha came up to me in the high school library one day our sophmore year and asked if I could drive her home to get her spare key. We were strangers up until that moment!

If your selfie is going to be photobombed, at least have it be by the groom! Here we are killing time before making our entrance into the reception.

Best friend and parents. <3

Lisha is my first friend to get married, and as my best friend, it was such a big day for not only Lisha, but for me as well. I am so glad that she found this amazing and hilarious man.

I LOVE this girl! Liz is Lisha’s cousin in-law, but I didn’t meet her until the bachelorette party. Homegirl is my new bff and every event for Lisha we are inseparable.

Going into the entire wedding planning, I only knew Lisha and no one else in her bridal party, but by the end, all of the ladies and her cousins have become some of my favorite girls in my life.

We were all even talking about going out together for girl’s nights and all of that, so it better happen, because they make me laugh more than anyone has made me laugh before.

The wedding was absolutely perfect, and seeing Lisha beyond happy was all I needed.

I slept from about 1 am until 7 am, and spent most of my day recovering on the couch. I didn’t even drink, but the busy week and late nights sure caught up to me. It was a day of eating, shopping, and binge watching White Collar.

And Sunday was spent working out, meal prepping, and sun bathing with a good book! This picture was after I showered and changed, but I got a great base tan for the Bahamas in t-minus 2 weeks!
