Before we left, I thought it was best to eat a ginormous meal. Piece of advice: This is the best strategy if you have food intolerances and you will be relying on someone else for your meal. Always to go an event full. If there is something there for you to eat, great. If not, you're going to be starving.

When I looked at the clock after that, it was already 2:30 - and I still hadn't showered. We were leaving at 3:30. It was definitely a time crunch, but I did it!hello cute dress I have only worn once before!
The wedding was in the city, so FH and I were on our way! This was the most ridiculous drive ever. We didn't know where the reception hall was, so we brought Mommasita's GPS. However, every single time I typed in the address the GPS thought we were on side streets and not on the highway (we were on the highway). It kept recalculating every 5 seconds and we couldn't get the directions! FH then had a great idea - use the GPS on his phone! A fabulous idea until his phone died. GREEEAT! We eventually found it (after almost hitting someone) BUT GPS's were not our friends yesterday.Hello Chicago - I never seem to visit you even though you are so close. :(
At my cousin's wedding, there were a number of things that happened - which are very typical of a wedding.
There was dancing.....
There was drinking (by my tablemates).....
There was family....
my cousin and FH (no, we are not related, I know it looks like we are haha!)
And there was a photo shoot of FH and myself...
Yes, we are holding hands. No, it's not because of our undying love for each other. He was trying to tickle me.
When I got home (at 11 - I am a big party girl) I wasn't really that hungry, but I knew I needed to eat something if I didn't want to wake up in the middle of the night hungry. At the reception the only thing I could eat there were baby red potatoes - and yes, I had an entire serving bowl of them. I also brought along a LaraBar just in case - and yes, I ate that too. To fend off my nighttime hunger, I made some steamed veggies and ate a lot of unpictured cashews.
After my snack, I was out! I woke up this morning around 7, and got right to work on a fantabulous breakfast. A repeat, but delicious nonetheless.
Time for some Sunday festivities! I'm off to church with the family! After that, I am going by the house to finalize paint colors (they're painting tomorrow), and then possibly going to the beach!
Question: What do you usually do on Sundays? Do you go to church, hang out with family, or just have a lazy day?
