Word to Your Mother

May 10, 2010

Happy Mother’s Day!!!

This weekend has been a busy one! The wedding last night was a blast—great food, great friends, GREAT band!  We spend the night dancing and drinking.  Much wine was enjoyed, and I woke up this morning feeling less than stellar.  But, it was all worth it.  I got to catch up with some great friends:

This is my BFF Mary Margaret—we share the same birthday, and went to school together from 2nd grade, all the way through high school.  Love this girl!

I actually didn’t snap many photos of food at the wedding.  They had a wide array of delicious eats, from a gourmet cheese table to a shrimp and grits station to a meat carving station.  I enjoyed a nice cheese plate, and some wedding cake as well.  Again, no pictures…but rest assured that it was delicious!

This morning, I was feeling like death a little hungover, but again, it was worth it to have such a fun night with old friends!

Anyway, I needed to get over my slightly weakened condition, because it was time to celebrate…
