Wedding Weekend Happenings

March 9, 2009 at 7:50 PM (Food, Friends, Wedding)

What an awesome weekend!!  I worked a half day on Friday then headed home to wait on my friends Blair, Heather, and Jenna to arrive from NC and SC.  We started out by eating at Bugaboo Creek Steakhouse.  We then headed to an awesome makeup store called Bare Escentuals (yes that is how it’s spelled).  We spent over two hours in the store.  My makeup “adviser” put together a wedding day look for me and taught me how to pull it off.  It was a great experience.  We all learned a lot.  Later that evening, I made dinner for everyone.  We had salad, mashed sweet potatoes, and cranberry pork chops.  We also spent a lot of time discussing Table Topics (highly recommended, by the way).  Ben had his own “date” scheduled while the girls hung out.  He ate dinner and saw a movie with our friend Jon.

Saturday started with breakfast.  Ben went to an eye appointment and then over to Jen and Jesse’s house to play games for the entire day.  My crew and I headed out to do some more shopping.  We found a great head piece and jewelry for me to wear on my wedding day.  I’m very pleased with everything that we found.  We headed back to my house where we took a stroll (jog for Jenna) around the neighborhood.  The weather was picture perfect!  We then made homemade pizza for dinner.  We made two kinds: chicken BBQ and white pizza.  The chicken BBQ pizza consisted of chicken, honey BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, and onions.  The white pizza consisted of pesto sauce, onions, black olives, spinach, feta cheese, and mozzarella cheese.  The pizzas were fabulous!!  Yummy!  We ate dinner outside by candlelight.  It was lovely.  We spent the evening talking and goofing off.

On Sunday Ben and I made breakfast for everyone.  We also invited Talissa, Jon, and Mazie over.  We made pancakes, strawberry and cream cheese crepes, sausage, bacon, and scrambled eggs.

This weekend was just amazing.  We truly have awesome friends. 🙂  Check out some pics below.  Blair and Heather took most of the pictures so I don’t have very many.  I’ll share more pics as soon as they send them to me.
