Love and the lake – weekend recap

1 Jun

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend! Noah and I took yesterday off in order to make it a true mini vacation for ourselves. We had a great weekend and were very relaxed.

Friday night we went to our friends’ wedding in Frederick, Maryland. The weather was perfect for their outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour and everything looked absolutely beautiful. I love the attention that was paid to all the details. The food was incredible too!

Then, about halfway through their reception we saw the sky turning black and overheard that there was a tornado watch for the area. I managed to snap a picture of the (somewhat pretty looking) sky right before the downpour and insane winds began. Oh, and the power went out right as I was sitting on the toilet. That was fun! Luckily, the venue had back up generators that they used until the storm passed. The bride and groom weren’t phased though which just goes to show that no matter what, your wedding day is awesome!

All in all, we had a great time! Congratulations Shawn & Michelle!


On Saturday, we drove to the airport to head to Georgia for our extended weekend. When we arrived in Atlanta we met up with Noah’s friend Mario and his wife to hang out and grab some lunch. I’ve been dying to try Richard Blais’ Flip Burger ever since Katie from SheLikesRuffles posted about it during her trip to BlogHer Food. Well, it did not disappoint! I had the “Fauxlafel” burger and fries with a Cap’n Crunch milkshake. It was freakin awesome. Unfortunately, my phone was dead at this point so I did not manage to get any pictures of our lunch, or more importantly, with our friends!

After dinner and some down time we drove out to Lake Oconee. We spent the next three days hanging out at the pool, going out on the boat, golfing (Noah), hanging out with family and friends and eating a lot! We also saw Hangover 2 (which was terrible) one night once everyone else had left. I didn’t take many pictures throughout the weekend (I was too busy sunbathing and/or babysitting my nephew with my sister in law and cousin) but here are a few I managed to get.




We came home late last night, but luckily I am working from home today. I hope you all enjoyed at least one day off this past weekend! Can you believe it is June already?! Rabbit rabbit!

    I’m jealous that you got to have the Capn Crunch shake! There were so many flavors, I had a hard time deciding, but our server was recommending that one as his personal favorite. Perhaps next time!

      I REALLY wanted to try the Nutella/burnt marshmallow but I asked our waiter and he said Capn Crunch was his favorite so I went with that. Noah had the turtle which was VERY chocolate-y so I dont think I would have been able to drink a whole one. Guess I’ll have to go back too!

    Le sigh – those peonies in that floral arrangement at the wedding are gorgeous! 🙂 Looks like you had a fantastic weekend, too. I’ve heard from several people that the Hangover 2 is terrible…maybe we’ll wait for it to come to DVD?

      I loved all of her floral arrangements, it was a beautiful (and hot pink!) wedding! I would definitely wait until it comes out on DVD. Dont pay for it…it really isnt worth it!

    Was that the first wedding you’ve both been to since yours? Sounds like you had a fab bank holiday weekend. Our weather here in Britain wasn’t as nice as yours, no bikini for me, more a rain mac – it didn’t stop all day. I know June, can’t believe it, 17 days to go till I say I will. 😉

      Good memory, yes it was! I had such a reat weekend. So exciting that your wedding is only 2 weeks!!

        I may have confused you, so I’ve changed my name on here back to Prewitt so you know who it is ;). AlwaysWright is my screen name on blogspot and it seems to remember it on here.

        Done, sorry for clogging up your comments with my identity crisis lol

      Dont worry, no confusion! I knew it was you 🙂

    Looks like so much fun! Besides, you know, the tornado. Seriously jealous of your beach photos though!

    • suburbianbliss June 2, 2011 at 9:04 pm #

      Now that it’s in the past and we’re safe I like to think of the tornado as an exciting moment of the night. Won’t ever forget that wedding!

    You were in my neck of the woods! Can you believe I live in Atlanta and haven’t tried Flip yet? I know, ridiculous. One day! I LOVE that bride’s dress, btw. So pretty!

    • suburbianbliss June 3, 2011 at 9:14 pm #

      Layla, you need to go try it NOW. But not the one in Buckhead…the one on Howell Mill Rd (the original). I also loved her dress…so flattering on her!
