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. My 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 :)
