Peacocks, Ladder Golf & Eggs Benedict

Saturday afternoon I attended a peacock themed wedding. That was definitely a first for me. The bride has a thing for peacocks, and asked me my thoughts on a peacock themed wedding months ago. I said go for it! Because really....it would be something different.

To be quite honest, I was really excited. I thought I would see something like this:


Unfortunately the wedding was pretty normal. No peacock feather wedding dress. Only a few feathers sticking out of the bridesmaid's bouquets, and a few stuck into the arrangements at the wedding.

All of us had begun referring to the event as "The Peacock Wedding" and were a little disappointed with the results. Even my friend TWW sent out a message on Saturday morning stating "So, what are the travel arrangements for the peacock wedding". You know when the guys get in on the banter it has really reached a new level :)

All in all it was a lovely wedding. The weather was beautiful, and it was an open bar. You can't ever go wrong with good weather and an open bar.

I cut out of the peacock wedding early. Some good friends were hosting a cookout/ladder golf tournament and I wasn't about to miss the competition! I changed into shorts and a polo and made it just in time for sign ups!


TEN was the grill master for the cookout piece of the evening. He refused to attend the peacock wedding with me because he is not a fan of the peacock bride AT ALL. Apparently they met on her bachelorette party night and he was not impressed.

In ladder golf my team won the first round, but then lost by 2 points in the second round. Boo hiss. Then, those that remained at the party headed down to the basement to play Rock Band. It was ugly. I'm not going to lie. I think I sang. I'm just hoping there isn't a video anywhere.

I proceeded to leave my camera at the party, so I didn't have it to take pictures of Sunday's festivities. Thank goodness Barbie had hers!

Sunday morning was another meeting of the PJ
Brunch Club. I was the host this month,
and TEN volunteered to make eggs benedict and some yummy orange gooey rolls. I made bacon and a breakfast casserole and cut up some fruit. That's about all I've got to offer when it comes to cooking, but let me just say it was DELICIOUS!!!



After we filled our bellies to the max the girls piled on my spare bed to take a picture. There was only a small group at this month's gathering, as some of the members were out of town. But who says less isn't more ;) We sure enjoyed ourselves!



<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

TEN and I are going to see The Hangover tonight. I've heard that it is quite possibly the funniest movie ever. If it's not I will be disappointed. I'm not going to lie. I'm hoping it is awesome because I haven't seen a really funny movie in a long time. AND...I'll be sure to give you my honest opinion tomorrow. You can count on that!

I've been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
