The Royal Wedding had nothing on this!

Tuesday I packed my bags kissed my boys goodbye and got in the car with my hubby for a quick breakfast before I left for KY..........ALONE!  I was traveling back to my home state for the wedding of the century.  I couldn't wait for a couple of days catching up with old friends, just talking, eating, drinking(more on that later), just being. 

I have known this little girl since she was a year old!  I used to walk her around the block so her mom could get some things done around the house.  That's how it started, just a babysitter for an hour or so so a single parent could breathe.  It turned into so much more.  I gained an older brother, a younger brother, and a younger sister.  Not to mention a WONDERFUL other mom and a couple of years later, Ron, the saint!  Funny how God puts people in your life at just the right time and He knows just what you need.  I love this family. 

The festivities started on Thursday with the Bridesmaids Luncheon at a nice little place in Lexington KY. I got slightly lost but after a phone call to the bride I made it fine! It was so nice to see Miss Heather again. Not to mention Auntie and Sandi and Jess! It was like a reunion from way back! It just felt right, like home again. Heather was beautiful as always and it was like no time had passed at all. We enjoyed a nice lunch and got a nice gift from Sandi to remind us of Heather.

Then the rehearsal dinner on Friday.  Could it have been any hotter?!  The humidity was horrible and we were all sweating so bad.  The boys looked horrible, wiping themselves with a towel and sweating through their shirts!  The bride to be however was stunning as usual!  She has such a sense of style.  Then out to dinner at the place where the bride to be and her groom to be had their first date and where he proposed!  How romantic!

What a great night with old friends!  It was nice to be able to spend some time with my sister without the kids too.  We had a nice ride to the rehearsal and then a nice time at dinner.  I can't remember the last time we had dinner together without kids!

Saturday was the big day!  We asked out Aunt Mary to take us down to Lexington at 8am!  We had a lot of places to be and didn't want to have to worry about our car.  Our wonderful friends Pam and Steve picked us up.  The ride home was very entertaining to say the least!  The wedding was beautiful and just perfect!  The reception was a blast and I am sad to be leaving friends and can't wait to see them again!

Congratulations Mr.and Mrs. VanDyke!  I love you to the moon and back!
