my big brother is married!
it was a bit of a stressful week all around… lots of last minute things to take care of, place tags to print with a broken printer, etc. my week was slightly better. I discovered saturday morning that when my dress was altered, the seams were let out too far and parts were falling apart. it wasn’t noticeable to anyone else, but it was frustrating. also, my hairdo cost more than I ever would’ve guessed. but it all went off fine.
saturday morning was very nice. I had time to stop by my weight watchers meeting, where I had lost another 3/4 of a pound that was still hanging on. then I headed to my hair appointment. I was worried I wouldn’t get much protein later on, so I went healthy and had a soy corn dog. ;-)
everyone was just beautiful. my dad had a tux just like all the groomsmen. my mom had a pretty, flowy dress. and I really loved my bridesmaid’s dress. no joke, it was beautiful and elegant. and EP cleaned up so good.
it was a long Catholic mass, but once we all walked in, our nerves settled down. we had a nice bus for the wedding party, and delicious sweet champagne during the photo-taking hour. the reception was good fun, too. I found out about some sweet heart-to-hearts afterward. but there was a lot of dancing. and laughing.
not too many photos yet. hopefully I’ll get to see what the photographer took soon. but I had the iPhone, and they had a photo booth. we’ll make do with those for now.
and now, it’s back to a normal week… with an even rougher monday morning because of daylight savings time. I’m excited for an extra hour of sunlight tonight, though!
