There's no place like home....

Ahhh, the joys of home. I just love my house - it truly is my home and place of rest. :)

We are back from the whirlwind weekend. Except it wasn't very much of a whirlwind in a good sense of the word. Always something huh?

I was so excited to get away and be able to attend a wonderful rehearsal dinner at a winery in St. Augustine - with wonderful food and great conversation. Then, a fabulous reception dinner consisting of filet mignon eaten overlooking the beaches and intercoastal of St. Augustine. I was expecting great things! Can you totally see where this is going??

Friday afternoon during the rehearsal itself, Andy felt sick. Turns out, he got the stomach bug that Layne was dealing with earlier in the week. Not much fun from there on out....we ended up going to the rehearsal dinner (not sure why he committed to go!). He spent his time mostly in the bathroom while I cared for Layne and tried to enjoy the company I was with. When the dinner line was opened, I wanted to wait until the line was small - however; Andy prompted me to go because he wasn't lasting and wanted to go. So, I scarfed my food and we left. Delicious food. But, scarfed nonetheless. I spent the rest of the night wandering the isles of Target with the baby, so I could get out of the hotel room and try to do something fun. Like spending some money! heehee And mostly to avoid watching and listening to Andy get sick all night.

Then, Bayleigh got the stomach bug on Saturday morning. Poor baby! :(

Needless to say, the weekend was not what I had been expecting or hoping for. I couldn't help but be disappointed and sad. And thinking that if only our original plan would have been supported by his family, we might have been in a different boat. But, it's okay. I had to let it's no ones fault. :)

We did get to enjoy the wedding and reception. A few pictures to share from the event:

Alright, holy picture overload, huh?!?!? :) That's our eventful weekend in a nutshell. haha The only eventful part!!

I have a project due today that I am trying to finish up, so I better get back to it! Nothing like procrastination!! hehe I work better under pressure. Ahhh, at least that is what I tell myself.

Back tomorrow with a layout to share.

Until then....

Oh dear...sorry to hear it all went pear-shaped. So many people ill at this time of the year - when it's a stomach bug, tho,you tend to forget about the adults picking it up! Still, lovely wedding, great pics!
