Just Something I Whipped Up and Some Wedding Details

Thank you all sooooo much for leaving me comments on New Friend Friday. I loved reading them and getting to know you better. 🙂 I can’t wait until this Friday. I have an idea for a new “get to know you” question. 🙂

Okay, before I get to the party I figured I’d share a few details (and pictures) from my sister’s wedding. The day started off with me getting a horrible haircut. Ugh! Bangs WAY shorter than I had expected or wanted. Good thing it was not my special day. I just grinned and beared it. :/

We had to travel over 2 hours and that went off without a hitch……for the first 30 minutes when we realized we left Mr. Girl Creative’s shoes at home. Not a big deal. A trip to Target remedied that!

Fast forward a few hours to the pre-wedding pictures when my 6 year old, Emilee, got mud on the bottom of my sister’s dress. Luckily a little bleach took care of that. But that is when the stress began for Mr. GC.

The Bridal Party and the Bride got to the church a few minutes late b/c apparently no one gave the limo driver the memo on exactly where the church was located or how to make an illegal (shhhh!!!) left turn into the church, thus detoring us and the whole motorcade behind us through some random neighborhood instead of just turning around in Walmart.

Whew, we’re at the church, all is well, everyone is in place, the bride has just walked in when I hear my 3 year old (Gracie) yell, “I want out of here!” proceeded by big sister Emilee’s not so quiet “Shhhhhh, Gracie! Or else we’re not going to Disney World”. Next thing I know, all is quiet and peaceful………because Mr. GC took both girls out to the car and missed the entire wedding.

Let me not get started on the 8:00pm reception. LOL My sister looked beautiful, she had a great day, her groom was on cloud 9 so in spite of all of the chaos that surrounded me and my brood, it was the perfect day for the perfect couple. Here are a few pics….

Doesn’t she look beautiful??? I’m soooooo happy for her. 🙂

Thanks for letting me share my weekend with you. Onto the Linky Party!
