This weekend was Lindsay's wedding - and as of Friday evening I was still wondering if Maddy was going to have the strength to even walk down the aisle as the flowergirl...I wasn't too concerned because Lindsay's niece was the other flowergirl, so if Maddy had to back out, they would still have one...but lo and behold, she finally got some Gravol into her (by emergency doctors) and she was able to go!
I let her sleep in Saturday morning cuz I knew the day was going to be busy. Hair and makeup began at 7 am but we arrived a little after 9...everything was in wedding mode by then. Maddy wasn't herself and just sorta laid low (which was actually good LOL). After I got my hair done, Maddy went and got hers done...no questions asked...she just sat there (that was a miracle because she doesn't even let me brush her hair and now she was letting some stranger use a curling iron).
By the time we went to the Church - she was getting sleepy again and it was soooo hot while we waited for the gorgeous bride to arrive...the church was overflowing with friends and family. The flowergirls did a PHENOMENOL job walking down the aisle...I was behind them so I couldn't see if they were smiling or not, but they walked and that's all that mattered. They took a seat at the front of the church and didn't budge from there either. The ceremony was quick and lovely...Nancy blessed them Husband and Wife and then we were out - popping streamers at the married couple!
We went back to the house for pictures then headed to the hall where there were cocktails, speeches, dinner and dancing. We snuck out after the dinner to pick up Tanner and by the time we got back, Maddy was sleeping on my sister. We let her be for a bit thinking it was just a little nap (cuz she wanted to dance) but by 10:30 pm, she wasn't waking up so we packed everything up and headed home. It had been a long day, so I wasn't upset about leaving! I would have loved to have danced some, I would have loved to enjoy the pizza luncheon at midnight and I would have liked to have mingled longer, but with Maddy having a rough week, it just made sense to bring her home and let her sleep it off some more.
Yesterday she was back to normal...we headed to Church where she made me a Mother's Day gift then we went to my parents for a bbq...
It was a lovely weekend filled with love and all that...and it was gorgeous weather too! Lindsay and Ryan are probably on their plane right now heading to their honeymoon - I wish them good weather, good food and total relaxation! See ya's when you get back!
