Another Year Older

I had to take an extra day to get some rest from this whirlwind birthday weekend. And I'm still exhausted! Friday after work Curtis and I went to eat at the brand-new Dixie Fish Company. I had sweet tea-brined fried chicken (AMAZING) and Curtis had some of the best fried catfish I've ever tasted. I wish I could eat there every night. By the time, I got home Friday night I thought I was going to explode I was so full, but I had to squeeze in a piece of pecan praline pie from one of my favorite BBQ joints Big Deddy's. A former student's family owns it and I laid down the hints pretty heavy that I really wanted a whole pie for my birthday and that sweet girl didn't disappoint.

Saturday I woke up and treated myself to a massage. It was so relaxing that I was pretty useless for the rest of the day, but I soldiered on and headed out to my next event- my little sister's wedding on Sunday. It's been a while since I've been involved in any kind of wedding planning, so I was shocked at how exhausting it can be to get everything ready for the big day. When I put on this green Lucie Lu number, my mom commented, "You have so many pretty dresses!"

Dress: c/o Gwynnie Bee
 I couldn't lie to her! I had the return envelope with me to send the dresses back to Gwynnie Bee first thing Monday morning, so I had to explain to her how it worked. And then she promptly put my butt to work. I really feel like I might have been MVP for the whole event. I dyed my sister's hair, set up her hair and makeup appointment, and saved her hydrangeas when they started wilting (put the entire flower bloom and all in a bathtub filled with ice water and those babies will perk right up!),  Curtis, with all his fashion blogging experience, took photos for my sister. I don't want to share too many because it isn't my place to share, but I couldn't resist showing just one. This was taken immediately after they said their "I dos" and I just love the tenderness of the moment. Doesn't it just make you feel all warm and gooey inside?

You look stunning in that dress, and what a beautiful picture of your sister. You're right, weddings are definitely a lot of hard work - my sister was indispensable for mine.

Also, happy birthday! :)
