well shit…i dont think that i have blogged since way before i left for the wedding on the cape. wow since, hmmm let me check my archives, since July 14th…wow..and that was just pics posted.
Well my life has been pretty busy. I was working crazy hours there for awhile, because July 18th-22nd I was up on the Cape in Massachusetts for my Brother’s wedding which was July 21st. I will tell you in another blog all about my BLING BLING HAIR I got for the Wedding – Ridiculous!!
Tues-Thurs I spent many of hours in the sun and on the beach hanging out with my kickass cousin, Aubrey, wow has she grown up – AND i absolutely love spending time with her!! (my parents rented a convertible for the week and Aub and I stole it one day – to pick up men!!) I also got to spend a lot of time with my family which was cool since we hardly ever get to see each other.
My parents hosted the rehearsal dinner on Thurs nite, clam bake with a DJ – talk about a party!! I was even dancing with Monkeys!! Blow up ones that is. I also opted to give my best man speech at the rehearsal dinner instead of the reception, thought it was more intimate…
The wedding was Friday nite and it was amazing and beautiful and alot of fun! And if i do say so myself, yes i am going to be cocky, i looked GOOD!
saturday was family time and we all just vegged out all day..and then SUNDAY – was NYC tour day for the fam.
