Weekend Wrap Up Part 2

Saturday Afternoon:
The Count and I went to a wedding. It was very nice, not my style but nice. My mom came to the ceremony with us because she wanted to see what a wedding was like at my fiancĂ© and my church, and to brainstorm on ideas. The sweetest touch, to me, was that the bride wrote her hubby a song and recorded it and played it as she walked down the aisle! I was done, tears everywhere! *sidenote, I have been instructed to learn how to cry pretty, my mom was like whoa! You cry like somebody is hurting you* But they were cute, up there acting all silly which was nice, because they were true to themselves. On to the reception…..they planned a beautiful outdoor reception BUT it rained! Not just regular rained, it stormed! Thankfully it happened before they got there. When my fiancĂ© and I arrived we went right downstairs (it was held at a mansion) and helped them move the stuff indoors. My baby was out there in the rain taking down tables and bringing stuff in, I was drying off dishes, and chairs, setting tables, whatever needed to be done. It was very uncomfortable because as soon as the rain stopped it got HOT! Being wet and sweaty is not cute let me tell you! But we worked hard, because we know we would want somebody to do the same thing for us. By the time the bridal party arrived we had successfully moved everything inside and we all had a great time. The bride is such a laid back person it didn’t even faze her, but I probably would have been crying away because all the hard work I put in for my outdoor decoration went to waste.

Saturday Night:
We went to one of The Count’s old friend’s cookout. I was hesitant about going because I don’t know any of his friends from elementary school, because he went to a small private school. But I’m glad I went, it was fun. They were reminiscing on old times and stuff and I was cracking up at their old yearbooks. Another storm rolled up when we were just about to leave, so we had to wait for it to die down (of course the power went out too, and everybody sat like you had to be silent when the room was dark, it was funny). But while we were waiting I got to meet his friend’s girlfriend. So we all sat around talking about how they met and stuff because I love to hear those types of stories (there’s was funny, they bonded over his car blowing up on his way home for Thanksgiving break). The Count got a huge ego boost when she saw my ring and grabbed my hand and dragged me over to her boyfriend and told him to “take notes”. I know my baby was proud of his work!

Sunday:
Overslept and missed church. Since I fell asleep on the couch (again) when I went to my room in the middle of the night I forgot to take my phone and that’s what wakes me up. So I slept all day. At like 3pm my mom opened my room door and started hollering “you have been in here all day? I thought you were gone somewhere with the count, if you don’t bring your little hermit behind out here and interact with folks!” So she and I watched some movies together and I finally handled my bridesmaid dress situation, so I can cross that off of my to-do list.

I woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning and I am still in a good mood even after a few encounters with bosslady this morning (I may have to make that tomorrow’s post because bosslady’s boss, bossman, is here and that might deter my blogworld journey for the day).

Soooo, how was your weekend?

I wasn't loud, just ugly! But the count had to learn the hard way how I get down, so he's used to it (it was too funny, Ima have to do a post on that one). My mom said the exact same thing you said! She was like "you talking all this trash about how you want a spotlight on you, but if we have to see that face everybody will be scared!"
