Wedding Weekend

Monday, October 20, 2014


This weekend was my boyfriends childhood friends wedding.  We headed to Arkansas on Friday morning...and by Friday morning I mean we left Dallas at 3:30am.  It was a long drive but an entertaining one.

We arrived around 10, and sat around for a couple hours.  We were both hyped up on monster so our nap time ended up never happening.  Once a few other people showed up we all headed out to the cabins.  I was laughing because they said they were only about 20 miles away but it would take us over an hour to get I know why.  The roads are so twist and turn every which direction, our turn off was barely visible from the road and was not much of a road to be honest.  At this point GPS was all we had.  We had to stop at least 4 times just to confirm we weren't about to show up at some peoples house and get welcomed with a shotgun greeting.  Finally we pull up to a beautiful cabin sitting on the calmest lake surrounded by tall green trees.

I was in heaven, the cabin was huge and so quaint all at the same time.  Friday night was the rehearsal dinner, I watched Ryan practice and then we ate.  After dinner we all hung around the camp fire and talked...the boys jumped in the pool (because they forgot to inform the wives/fiances/girlfriends to bring suits...I see what they were going for lol) and hung out until it got too chilly and they had to come in.  At this point I had to crash, little sleep and a few drinks did me in.

Saturday was the big day, we helped set up and I bonded with the girlfriends of the groomsmen.  It was nice to be able to talk and hang out with people while the boys were off doing there thing. I was super excited to wear my eliza J dress I got at Nordstrom, but super thankful I brought some flats.  Between the 100 stairs, and the steep, wet incline I would have never made it.  We had a great weekend among old and new friends, it was hard to make the 6 hour drive back home, but it was nice to sleep in our bed with the cute babies.  I totally regret not taking more photos, but the weekend went by too quickly as they always seem to do.

I hope you all had a great weekend and have an even better week.
