Pre-Wedding Festivities

Hello from Kiiintucky!! It’s weird because if I look out my window, I can see Ohio, but our hotel is over a bridge that puts us in the lovely city of Newport, Kentucky.

We had a 8 and a half hour car ride yesterday, and although I rode bitch the entire ride, at least I had pretty scenery to look at!

Fancy how different things looks once you get a few hours outside of the city ;)

My family is pretty large, and we were lucky that most of us started arriving around the same time. That meant a late lunch and afternoon cocktails at a restaurant next to the hotel.

Later in the evening my aunt and uncle (the parents of the bride) hosted a cocktail and dessert party for the out of town guests. Cocktails and desserts? That sounds like my kind of party :)

Prepare for picture overload.

Too bad my cousins are ugly, right? ;)

More cousins :)

Mom and me

He makes us look good :)

Let’s not forget desserts.┬áMy hand frequented this bowl throughout the evening as well. And that sneaky carrot cake in the background was heavenly!

Okay, I’m off to spend more time with my family! I can’t believe my cousin is getting married tonight!! It’s so very exciting :)

I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend filled with good food, great friends and family and lots of laughs :)
