Almost Recovered..

So last weekend was my friend's wedding. At this point I think I am finally (almost) recovered from it. Haha.. Her day was exactly how she wanted it. It was absolutely perfect for her. My favorite part was when the doors opened up for her, her *now* husband had tears streaming down his face. It was so sweet.

My bouquet
Me with the Mr. & Mrs.
Eating the cake... So funny story.. The photographers took their rings to place them on top of the champagne bottle to take a few pictures. Well, the champagne decided to pop with the rings on top and the rings went flying. Hers was found right away but they couldn't find his anywhere. They FINALLY look at the cake, and lo and behold, his ring had buried itself in the cake. The piece that they cut to eat had his ring in it so it was kind of like a king cake. He got the prize piece! Hahaha..
This is what we put on the back of their car. :)
I caught the bouquet!.. Meghan kept looking backwards so she could aim right at me. Haha.

 That's all the pictures I have of the wedding... I'm in another one in March. Hopefully I'll be fully recovered from this one in time for that one. ;)

Wedding Week!

This weekend is my friend Meghan's big day! Here are some pictures from the bridal luncheon and bachelorette party this weekend:
All the bridesmaids with Meghan... We make a flower

Hats were required at the luncheon.

We're such ladies... Haha..

At the hotel.. Meghan was forced to wear a tacky crown and sash.

PF Chang's!

Me and the bride. :)
Made with a Comic app.. Great fun!
This weekend is going to be crazy!

McGraw Family Reunion

So this weekend was my gigantic extended family's cousin reunion. I really mean gigantic.. My great grandmother was the oldest of 13. In the next generation (my grandmother's) there's around 54 people (plus spouses) and in the 3rd generation (my mom's) there are around 105ish people (plus spouses) and then in my generation there are already 60something people.

Every year on Labor day the family gets together in Dothan, Alabama at one of the cousins' houses and it's pretty fantastic. 5 of the original 13 siblings were there.

On Saturday, they had this couple who played a ton of different instruments and were dressed in colonial garb. I got to play is violin.. It was fun. :)
His name was Chuck. He was excellent. 

Creepy face on a tree...

I also found some gems in the old family albums:
1989. Yes, that is my mother in the middle with the poodle hair.
From left to right: random cousin (ha), my mom, my aunt Teresa, my dad, and my uncle Keith.
1993, I believe (the year before my brothers were born).. I'm the one in the front on the far left with the ginormous bow.

The horse, I mean dog, Rudy

The kids all went out and had a mud fight in the river... I missed out on that one. OH well.

Baby Chloebelle.. Her feet didn't quite touch the ground in her walker. Haha.

And the McGraw family wall. HUGE family.

I hope everyone else had an excellent Labor Day weekend!
