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!
