Eat, Drink & Be Married.

I’m safely back from the DC roadtrip and so happy to be home. It was fun pretending to be a tourist, going to my first Steelers game {will blog about that soon!} and seeing my sister marry the love of her life, but there’s something about just relaxing and sitting on your own couch. I’m exhausted! Annnnnd I have to go back there in less than two weeks for a NASM personal training conference. I’m a roadtrippin’ fool lately!

So now, about my sister marrying the love of her life…Yay! That’s right….I did go to DC to be the Matron of Honor in her wedding!

This is the happy couple in one of their engagement pictures. Isn’t my sis cute?! My new bro-in-law Shurman is a lucky man. She’s also lucky because she found a really good guy. Awww, ain’t love grand? :-)

The wedding and small dinner reception took place at the Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa. It was beeeyooootiful there.

I could stare at water forever. I seriously need to move to the beach. It doesn’t matter that I don’t know how to swim. I just want to look at it.

Now, I did a lot of running around at first–I had lots of Matron of Honor duties to complete! I then felt sweaty and gross by the time the ceremony began. Blah. But it wasn’t about me. But I’m also slightly vain so, yeah, I still wanted to look nice! ;-) Not so, I’m afraid. After all that searching for the perfect red dress of my dreams, I don’t like any of the pictures that I found of myself  in my camera. My hair was a mess, my face was oily and needed to be blotted. Double Blah. I’m HOPING someone else got good ones.

This is the only one I somewhat like and it’s BLURRRRY. Grrrr. So, here’s another:

I think my face was still puffy from the cats! My sister has the most amaaaazing little kitties and I adore them, but I’m allergic. I guess I cuddled too much with them, lol! I sneezed the whole trip, but as hubby pointed out–at least I didn’t sneeze during the wedding. :-)

And now, for the most gorgeous bride ever–my sister Pamela!

LOVE the dress!



After the wedding, it was time to come in and get our eat on! {Or, drink on…}

Can't forget the champagne to go with my Yuengling!

I did eat, too. :-)

Oh, and the cake! The cake was yummy. Pretty, but yummy mostly.


And here are some of Pammy’s best friends enjoying themselves:

It was a great night had by all! I’m so happy for my sister and thankful to see her married off! The only part I dearly missed was having our Mommy see her, but I know she was there watching from one of the soft, puffy clouds in the gorgeous sky above. I thought I felt a small drop of rain hit my arm during the ceremony, but I’m quite certain it was her shedding a happy tear. :-)

‘Tis the season for weddings…have you been to any this summer?
