I’m finally starting to recover after what was an amazing weekend home in Ohio for my sister’s wedding! After ten years, Erin and Bryan finally tied the knot, and it was a weekend to remember!
Because of events at work last week, I was not able to fly home to Ohio until Thursday afternoon. I was greeted at the airport by my parents and sister, and we headed straight to my parents’ house for last-minute wedding preparations.
While my mom and sister put together the escort cards/favors (picture frames for photo booth strips) together, I worked on alphabetizing them to put out at the reception. I’ve recently started admitting my love for alphabetizing, and I’m pretty sure my family thought I was crazy for enjoying it so much.
The night didn’t consist of just work, though. While out searching for props for the photo booth, my mom came across Wizard of Oz masks. Since this has been Erin’s favorite movie her entire life, they were obviously purchased.
…And I obviously had to play Toto for a few minutes.
Speaking of dogs, my parents dog Scout loves having Erin and me home, and decided to sleep with us that first night. Even though we have our own rooms, when we are both home Erin and I typically both stay in her old room. This could get weird now that she and Bryan are married. This is how Scout decided to sleep the entire night.
And did we move her? Of course not. Instead Erin and I pretty much shared her side of the bed and had “moon landings” all night (Modern Family, anyone??). I think it’s worth it for such a cute pup!
After laughing for quite a while, we finally fell asleep and were up early on Friday for nail appointments!
PS Has anyone ever had a gel manicure before? A week later and it’s still holding strong–totally worth the extra cash!
The day consisted of nails, brunch with the bridesmaids (and my parents), picking up THE DRESS, and the rehearsal dinner!
More on that in my next post!
