Good Monday morning!
Hope you guys all had a fantastic weekend. Ours was busy, busy, busy.
As I mentioned on Friday, this past weekend was my cousin’s wedding. Her wedding was on a gorgeous property called Pursell Farms. Pursell has an acclaimed golf course, and is also known for their “hunts” (think pheasant hunting and skeet shooting).
My uncle graciously put us all up for the night on Friday night in 2 of their huge cabins. Each cabin has a common area consisting of a kitchen and living room. The cabins also each have 4 rooms, with separate bathrooms, that accommodate up to 4 people. It was a fun weekend of celebrating the newlyweds!
Friday night, we attended the rehearsal dinner. John and I did not make it on time, due to work and travel (Pursell is about an hour and a half from our house). However, we did make it in time to hear a few people speak about the bride and groom. They’d also set aside a plate of dinner for us. On the mini? Filets on a bed of mashed potatoes and asparagus.
After dinner, we all hung out and enjoyed catching up. It was nice to be able to spend time with my cousins whom I don’t get to see often enough. Since my dad is on of 4, I have a lot of cousins on that side – 16!
Saturday morning began with a big brunch of french toast casserole, fresh fruit, carrot and raisin muffins, mini bagels, bacon, and fried ham.
Following breakfast we all hung out on the property, walking and driving golf carts around to explore.
We also celebrated my sister sister, Anna’s, 20th birthday.
Following the birthday celebration, we all showered and got ready for the 4pm wedding.
My cousin was a gorgeous bride, and the wedding venue was stunning. It was such a sweet ceremony!
Following the wedding, we partied into the night at the reception.
Both the wedding and reception were outdoors. It got a little chilly, however dancing kept me warm! John and I had a blast dancing the night away to the 4 person band that was hired to play the reception. I can’t remember their name, but I know they were out of Atlanta and really good!
We finally made it back home around midnight Saturday night.
On Sunday, we forwent church in favor of sleep. The rest of the day included a lunch date with my hubby, trying, unsuccessfully, to find a dress for my sister’s rehearsal dinner, grocery shopping, food prep, and a little school work.
It was a fun weekend and I’m looking forward to repeating it again this coming weekend for my sister’s wedding!
