Wedding Weekend

So the wedding was so much fun! Abby was gorgeous and Brent looked pretty handsome too! I was blown away by her dress! It was amazing tiered layers of lace and she looked stunning! The bridesmaids dresses were pretty perfect too - they were blue floral patterned and strapless.
Both the ceremony and reception were in such beautiful venues. I was constantly looking around going 'wow'. And the food was awesome - I ate way too much! They did such a nice job of making everything enjoyable for us. It was great to get together with everyone and it was truly special to see how much Abby and Brent love eachother!

My new dress!
It got a little warm - thank goodness there was a piece of loose ribbon in the centerpiece!

I am one lucky girl! On Sunday, I got to nurse my hangover on Dane and Jenny's boat! I've never been boating before and I had a blast! I'm not a swimmer and I'm a super pansy, so I was hesitant to hop in the water without being able to touch the bottom. With the assistance of a floaty, I finally jumped in, and it was so worth it! A fish did jump on my back which caused a small panic episode, but don't worry, I eventually pulled it back together. 

Erik left on Sunday to drive for a RAGBRAI team. RAGBRAI is a huge week long bike ride across the state of Iowa where you start with your back wheel in the Missouri River and dip your front tire in the Mississippi at the end. It has become so big, that Lance Armstrong has even made a point of riding for the last several years. Both Bosley and I miss Erik terribly right now!
