babies v. weddings

Last week was a horribly, stressful week. I finished Friday off with a half day at work...then headed home to "de-stress" by working out.

Friday's workout: legs & back circuit, abs, 3 miles

Then Matthew & I met up with our fab friends Emily & Casey for a tastey meal at Seasons 52! As our waiter informed us, "Seasons 52 prides themselves on the fact that each meal is 475 calories or less". I'm pretty sure I worked out in order to eat that evening. It was delicious!

I needed to get a longer run in this today was the day. Ran 7 miles this morning...first half was at a faster pace than the last half.

Then we headed to Bville for a wedding!

Last year was the "year of weddings"...

Wedding #1
Brittany's wedding...bridesmaid in this one...we picked our attire (just had to stick with chocolate brown)
 so I went with Marc Jacobs dress, Steve Madden shoes
(Ideeli purchase)

Wedding #2
Mindy's wedding...I wore a Walter dress, Betsey Johnson belt
(a Bluefly purchase)

 Wedding #3
Amanda & Tom's wedding (Tom was in ours)...I wore a Betsey Johnson dress & jewelry
(a Rue La La purchase)

Wedding #4 
Betsy's wedding celebration (her wedding was in the Bahamas)....Betsey Johnson dress (how appropriate)

Wedding #5
Erin's wedding...bridesmaid in this one...she picked our dresses, we picked our shoes

our "prom" pose...

Wedding #6
Ashley's wedding...I wore an ECI dress (an Ideeli purchase)
Our infamous "married couples" picture...we did this at every wedding, it's now a tradition

And then I had 2 friends that had babies in 2010.

This year though....babies are beating weddings. I have several friends/family members that are expecting, bringing the score to:
Babies: 5
Weddings: 2

One wedding was Susannah & Philip's outdoor wedding. We had super crummy weather this past week (fitting for my horrible week) I was getting nervous for her. But hallelujah, the rain quit yesterday, and today was aboslutely PERFECT Florida weather!

We missed out on a pic with the gorgeous bride & groom...
but here's Matteo & I

It was a little windy...pardon my unruly & uncooperative hair.
Hale Bob dress
(Rue La La purchase)

The ceremony was so pretty, except for these furry, ugly caterpillars that were literally raining down from trees. Huge distraction for me...especially since one bounced off of our friend's head & onto my dress. And then somehow Matthew got some random smutz on his trousers...yours truly had to get it off for him. There was no tasteful way to do was just not in a good place on his rear, and there wasn't a bathroom to escape to. It's the random things in life...

Great pictures! I love weddings. I was at one this weekend with my boyfriend.

And I've met Mindy who was in one of the pics with you. : ]

Small world.

Really?? How funny! I love that gal.

I love a great wedding! I've always made the joke that I would love to go to one of the CMT Redneck Weddings - I would never WANT that for my wedding mind you but to be a guest would be hilarious!

And I wish more places that served fine food had meals that were all around 475 calories! I hate when I see commercials for say Applebees and they claim they have fit and friendly meals for 500-700 calories. Yeah more fit than your usual fare but hardly what I would call FIT MEALS!

It was good to know about this wedding. Couple of months ago, while arranging my cousin’s wedding reception, hired a reputed wedding caterer for preparing excellent food. This was arranged at one of the Los Angeles wedding venues and enjoyed a lot there.
