Catching up

I'm back. Home was very busy, but lots of fun! The makeup went over well with the bride and she was happy with it so that made me happy. My mom was in charge of lunch for the bridesmaids and groomsmen and we put together really cute boxed lunches for them. My mom made really cute cookies and the boxes were adorable. We all had a great time at the wedding. There was a really yummy fondue station and there were multiple cake flavors. They had regular, chocolate, red velvet, tropical carrot cake and vanilla raspberry. I got to see a lot of people from my childhood so it was fun to catch up. We stayed later at that one and did not make it to the next. It would have been just too much driving. 
     The next day I went to a bridal shower at the Melting Pot. It was different having a shower there, but was very fun. We had lots of cheese and chocolate and it was great to see two of my friends from high school. Another bridesmaid and I are planning a more traditional shower later on. And now it is back to the grind and a big deadline at work.

Here I am with the bride. I decided to go with a Lilly dress :)

The cookies my mom made. The white one was for the bride and the chocolate chip for the boys. These went in their boxed lunches we put together. I wish I had a picture of those!

I owe you some dance pictures from our show:

I loved my butterflies on my top! We each wrote our favorite verses or quotes about hope on a patch that was attached to our tops. Mine said, "Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul." - Emily Dickinson

This was our sassy dance ;)

Love all your pictures. You look beautiful in your Lilly dress. We went to the Lilly store in Charleston last week and my daughter got the cutest pink Lilly dress. Aren't their clothes fun?
Your dance pictures are great too. I love the saying about hope that you had on your shirt. I wrote it in my journal. I absolutely love the cookies that were in the boxed lunches. Did your Mom have a special cookie cutter for those dresses. I would love to have one just like it. It's so cute. My daughter and I love to make and decorate sugar cookies! Glad you had an awesome weekend. Weddings are so much fun!
Love & blessings from NC!

Your dress was perf for the wedding and the fondue cake-station sounds incredible, all of those choices of cake, I would have needed to sport an empire waisted dress from all of the indulging :)
