Country Club Weddings

E, the little gray dog and I just returned from my friend Maureen's Wedding and wow was it a busy weekend. Thursday afternoon we drove to MA for the rehersal dinner. Maureen's husband loves dirt bikes so his groom's cake had to have a dirt bike theme. When we returned to our hotel Maureen dropped of a cute little "welcome box" with snacks, tissues, aspirin, a cd, and a bottle of wine. It of course was tied with a pink ribbon since pink and green were her wedding colors.Friday we ran some errands and I got to relax a little and visit with Aidan before the big day. Saturday was crazy busy. I met Maureen and the bridesmaids at the salon for hair, then we went back to Maureen's mom's house for makeup, mimosas and a ton of photos. I swear my mouth ached at the end of the day from all the smiling. I didn't catch any of all of us as a group because I was in them, but I'm hoping Mo's mom took some. Then we drove to the church (where the bride's grandparents married almost 60 years ago!) for the ceremony. The ceremony was short and sweet (for a catholic wedding) and Mo and Josh looked really handsome together.

The reception was in the ballroom of the Quidnessett Country Club overlooking Narragansett Bay. The ballroom was beautiful and the photos should be really nice since it was a beautiful sunny day. E and I swapped meat at dinner since I don't eat red meat. He was pleased to have two filet mignons and I was just as happy with my chicken. The cake was a delicious chocolate tuxedo cake and Mo's signature strawberry margharitas weren't too shabby either.
All and all a happy and fun weekend. We even stopped in Mystic, Connecticut to have a seafood lunch at a cute little seafood shack right on the water.
Hopefully I'll be able to get my sewing machine drama straightened out this week. I'm sending the machine back, but it's still unclear whether I will get money back, or have to take store credit. I'm crossing my fingers for a refund, I e-mailed the owner, so we'll see how receptive he is.

Quidnessett is so pretty, we had such a nice time there. I went to college in RI so it will always have a special place in my heart.
