One of my best friends got married this past weekend at the Inn at Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina.
Mallory and I hit the road for the wedding weekend, well-prepared with snacks.
That’s right. I made guac for a road trip. Normal, no?
In my guac:
- Red onion
We hit a little traffic at the end.
We distracted ourselves by singing some Alanis Morissette. Ironic.
Despite the crawl, we arrived in plenty of time to enjoy the view from our cottage before the rehearsal and dinner.
The Bride showed up to the rehearsal wearing the perfect dress. Isn’t she pretty?
Buffet. S’mores. Open bar.
You do the math. It was a good night.
Side note: I’m not so sure I’m digging my spray tan. Too Snookie?!
Saturday morning we had time to roam around and enjoy the day before the wedding festivities began.
Mallory and I wandered into the Market and I found nut butter heaven.
We all got dressed and headed to pictures at the family’s guest house. These houses were no joke. I could have gotten lost in there. Specifically, in the Viking stove.
The wedding went without a hitch (pun intended). Christina was a GORGEOUS bride! I can’t wait to see the pics from the professional photog.
Post-wedding we had wine and hors d’oeuvres on the lawn. My favorite people in the world were all in the same place! (RARE occasion these days.)
The we were treated to an awesome 5-course dinner, plenty of toasts and dancing all night.
We had a great time with fellow bridesmaids and new friends Lauren and Tricia… Lauren is modeling the longest cucumber slice I have ever seen.
Sadly, we had to all part ways Sunday morning. Slowly. Fueled with coffee and eggs, compliments of the bride’s dad.
Being cooped up in a car all morning did motive me. After getting home, I went for a run, cleaned, played with Stevie (who was very glad I came home!) and got some work done for an early meeting.

Today’s breakfast was simple (so was the cell phone pic), but hit the spot after a weekend of over-the-top food.
Protein, good fats, and antioxidants. Just what the doctor ordered.
This afternoon I’m off to the airport for a business trip. This will be the story of my life for the next month or so. #marriedtowork
Does it seem like all of your friends are paired off/married/having babies?
