My Best Friend's Wedding Part II

The reception was a blast! 

Kate and her friend getting some much need water! 
I just have to add how proud I am of my genius self! 
I started the reception with 1 dirty martini 
then had one beer
Then was handed a whisky on the rocks, 
which I sadly had to pour out in the bathroom sink 
and fill with water! that looked a lot like vodka ;) 
See, I knew that we still had a pub crawl 
that consisted of walking to 4 bars 
and If I didn't want to literally be crawling from bar 
to bar I had to pace myself....
I just so happened to be the ONLY person
(besides Scott he doesn't drink) 
to think of this master plan. By the time we got to bar 1
everyone was hammered! LOL

lol..this was the end of the night!
The next morning we got up early packed the car
and headed to Rocky Point! 

Such a beautiful place! 

When we left Rocky Point we made a 
small stop in Monteray 
then we headed North to San Francisco! 
Our first stop was to see the 
"Full House" house! 
All of those pictures are on my camera
and I have yet to download them all!
I will share them one day I promise!
Here are a few I got with my cell
of busy San Fran!

We had a quick bite to eat then headed off to the airport :(

This Man can sleep anywhere! 

This was actually on our way to Cali but I forgot to post it at the beginning! 

Yep like I said... Anywhere.. 

Welcome back to Ohio! 
We will Miss you Carmel!! 
TTC update coming soon I promise!

My Best Friend's Wedding

 Cali was AMAZING! 
I can not even describe the beauty that state holds! 
we had the pleasure of visiting Carmel California 
which is about 2 hours south of San Francisco! 

We left Thursday the 18th and flew into San Jose
as soon as we arrived we rented a car and were on 
our way south to meet up with Colleen and her fam! 
We spent the day getting our nails and toes done 
while sipping champagne and chatting away. 
Thursday night we headed to Pebble Beach 
Country Club for an exclusive pizza party! 
What an amazing place! We had a blast! 
When the party ended we headed back to a small bar 
named Brophys it was directly in front of our hotel! 
It was "the spot" for the rest of the trip! 
Friday Morning Scott went golfing with the guys 
while Kate and I explored the town! 

This is the only thing that sounded like it could cure 
the draft beer hangover... The mashed potatoes made it down
the french onion soup however did not.. 
We finished up our shopping and made it back in time 
to start getting ready for the rehearsal! 
Which I sadly have only 1 picture of! 
I was trying to stay totally concentrated on my job duties! 
I found out quickly that high heels and wet grass 
did not mesh...nor did the gaps in the bridge! 
So after dinner Kate and I ventured back up highway 1 
to find a kohls! :) I found some perfect flats and a new 
pair of kicks for Scott! 
Saturday morning came fast, Kate and I met the girls 
over at the Mission Ranch around 9am and the fun began! 

And because I am super picky Cool 
I had 3 dresses for the day!! 
Colleen requested that since we all showed up 
with a white dress we all wore white for the ceremony 
then I had a blush dress made by my moms bestie 
that I wore for the reception! Then... 
we had a pub crawl where I wore my third 
and final dress :)

Before we knew it, it was time to walk down the isle! 
I borrowed this pic from a friends Instagram! :)

grandpa are in the far left corner

I LOVE his outfit! :) 

This house was built around this tree! 

Stay tuned for part 2 of My Best Friend's Wedding!

What the What?! (Update)

What the What!?! 
It's Mid JULY!! 
Where in the world is carmen sandiego time going?!
This is what we have been up to as of late.. 
• Random cornfield pic •Stormy weather •Scott lost a bet 
•Boating fun •Island fun! •Sparklers! 
•RedWhiteBlue •Gas up the boat •Hat day 

On July 3rd Scott and I decided to head up North to Indian Lake 
Our plans were to camp out in the woods for a couple days and 
just forget about life. On our way up we found out some family 
friends were staying in a cabin on the lake and had an extra bed for the night! 
We decided to shack up with them since the weather wasn't playing nice. 
We had a lot of fun despite the rain. 
On July 5th we headed 30 minutes west to meet 
with my cousin for lunch we stopped in this cute little town 
where we shopped at a few of the local antique stores 
and had lunch a cute little country home cookin' type of place. 

*Such a cute model I have :) 

When we got home that day we decided we hadn't 
quite had enough fun! 
So we unpacked, showered, changed 
and headed down to the casino! 

Did you know?! The Angels Live in The Pink Clouds! 

Such an amazing sky! 

A view from the parking garage of the casino! 

Momma said..."Never let your shegga touch a public toilet seat...
I seconded that and added never let your clutch touch the bathroom floor!" 
He was in the zone...I like to hide when he is winning! It seems to bring
him more luck if I don't watch! :)

The rest of the weekend we relaxed and worked on a couple 
more things around the house getting it 100% ready for showings 

This past week we met up with my cousin and her boyfriend 
to go to a local baseball game! 

Scott found 2 foul balls in the bushes right outside the stadium! 
He was super excited! On our way out he ran into an old 
friend who just happens to be a manager there, He 
took one of the foul balls to get all the players to sign it! 
It was a perfect ending to a great night! 

Then this week I got to deal with this.... 
(don't get excited it doesn't end with a happily ever after) 
No those are not teeth, they are pearls that are on my cell cover..
This test had the FAINTEST of Faint lines on it
and when I held it to light it popped right out...
So like the addict that I am I took another one the next day
 and got another FAINT of FAINT lines...

 SO I waited one more day and broke out this bad boy.. 
 Stupid freaking digital tests... take all the fun out of assessing the lines... 

Now a quick back story in case you are sitting there scratching your head 
going "But she was out of town, that's why they couldn't cycle" 
Well my friends... 
The day before the morning that I was leaving Vegas 
to come back to Ohio I woke to EWCM... 
not just a little, like a my body was doing it's job! 
I quickly pulled out my cell and saw that my Dark green day 
was set for Friday...The day I would be home! 
So could it be? Was my body really on track? 
We BD all weekend hoping maybe we could catch an egg! 
Aunt Flo was due today, and she hasn't yet made 
her grand appearance... 
But this mornings digital flashed it's big nasty words at me.. 
SO I am at a loss. 
I guess only time will tell.....(update) time told alright, around 3pm I started cramping..AF is officially here :( it's soooo crazy because I had absolutely no indication that she was coming! No spotting no cramping no bloating no pimples NOTHING!!! Ugh stupid universe! Anyways thanks for all your loving encouraging comments!! You all are truly the best!!!

Have a lovely weekend my lovelies!
