Weekend in Pictures

PHEW - What a long but fun weekend! I will try to be brief and use mostly pictures.

Friday: 6 mile run then Josh and I flew up to Philadelphia and met up with his parents and sister at the airport. We headed into Philly to pick up his brother who is going to medical school. Yes ladies, he is available ;)


On the way to the wedding location in NJ, we stopped at a chocolate shop in Philly. Josh's dad (a HUGE chocolate fan) got a glass of liquid chocolate:





We checked in and enjoyed the free robes:


Then headed to dinner to celebrate Josh's Mom's birthday:


We passed out afterwards and slept in on Saturday (it was HEAVEN). We headed to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. I got the awesome fruit and yogurt combo (low fat yogurt with granola, an apple, grapes, and an apple bran muffin (I only had a few nibbles of the muffin then passed it along to Josh and his bro to finish ;)):


We headed back to the hotel and I rocked out another 6 miles on the treadmill before heading to the wedding. Josh and his mama:


Josh and Me (in the winning Gray dress):


Joshers :)


The wedding was beautiful. I didn't get a lot of pictures because my camera died! The whole thing was held outside which was a litttttttle cold for this South Carolina girl. Me (freezing) and Josh during din din:

We got up this morning, I ran another 6 miles (not sure how this became my daily routine this weekend), got some food and then headed to the airport. I went food shopping and then picked up Franky. I gave him a bath and since that time he has been passed out on our bed (guess he had a wild weekend at the pet hotel ;)). Now I am trying to catch up on blogs and eating some yummy food. How was your weekend?

Looks like a great weekend, Erica! :)

I'm glad "my" dress won, too! haha. That's funny that Frank is passed out, he probably partied the whole time you guys were gone ; )

Kaytee said...

The gray dress was a great choice. You looked gorgeous!

vegetarianontherun said...

Yay! I missed you!! My weekend was awesome (running wise) and terrible (football wise). Le sigh. I bet Frank was glad to see you! Although whenever we leave Lizzie she just ignores us for about 3 days after we get her back. Bulldogs are total brats sometimes. I'm glad you're back! Have a super evening!

The gray dress looked perfect!! Also, didn't know that Cracker Barrel had fruit/yogurt options -- that's pretty cool :) Enjoy the rest of your weekend girl!

Erika said...

The gray dress looked stunning on you! Sorry you were freezing though!

Lizzy said...

Lori said...

Frank must have stayed up late without mom and dad around. That wild guy. :) I'm sure your BIL appreciates the singles ad. Ha, ha! Sounds like a great time! Good for you with all that running. I've been nursing a pulled upper back muscle this weekend, but I'm determined to get back to my runs tomorrow.

Hi lovely lady! Sorry I missed the poll for the dress, but before I even read this post I was thinking the grey - even though you looked fabulous in all of them! You and Josh are such a handsome (beautiful) couple :o) I'm glad you had fun!

I remember when I had a glass of liquid chocolate in Paris. It is SO rich and delicious - how fun! Thanks for your comment on my blog. It means a lot to me. Have a great week!
