It's nice to get dressed up once in a while!

Hey friends!  I hope you had a fantastic weekend!  After weeks of rain and gray skies (it seemed) and a small snow event on Thursday, we have actually had three whole days of gorgeous sunshine!  It has been FABULOUS!
Throughout the years, Marty and I seem to go out less and less.  We once used to go out multiple times a week, rarely ever staying at home.  These days, it is the complete opposite.  We rarely ever leave the house, except for work and church (and the dreaded car-rider line).  As Dorothy once said, "There's no place like home!"  We love being at home and being together, but every once in a while, it's nice to actually dress up, go out, and be with friends

Yesterday we did just that!
The daughter of one of my very special friends got married, and we were thrilled to be invited to the big event!  One of the things I was most excited about (other than the actual nuptials itself) was getting to meet my friend's family, who flew in from across the world to be there.  I've talked to them on the phone before, but now I was going to actually meet them in person!  
The wedding was two hours away, but Marty and I enjoyed the wonderful sunshine, and great conversation  during the drive.  Once there, the venue was fantastic and the wedding decor was hip, funky and fabulous! The bride was gorgeous and her dress couldn't have been more perfect. We finally got to meet my friend's family and it was like we've known them forever!  It's lovely to know that we have friends from across the world!  It was also great to see some old friends and familiar faces!

The ceremony was sweet, funny, and beautiful, and the reception was a blast!  They had everything from an ice cream bar, to instant photos complete with props, to a delicious buffet, to awesome music and dancing!  The best thing to most of the attendees was a television broadcasting the Atlanta Falcons game.  It's a pity they lost (to some), however.

We had a blast, but it got late quickly, so we had to leave.  I wouldn't want to have to get all dressed up all the time, but it's nice to get dressed up once in a while!
