The Best Kind of Weekends

Corey's cousin was getting married in Lynchburg, VA this weekend so we made it a twofer by stopping to see the Morris' in Richmond. It turned out the one of those fun filled summer weekends where you got to eat good food, hang out with good friends, spend a lot of time in the sun and never want to go back to work.
We stopped in Bethesda on our way down to pick up some DC cupcakes. I don't know why I thought 6 would be enough but let's just say that Sarah considered eating her own child's cupcake since Eva was napping when we got there. The cupcakes were good.



As you can see, Sarah made the right choice and Eva got her cupcake :) 



Sarah is my adventure mentor and she set up an awesome river floating trip for Saturday, before we had to leave for the wedding. First of all, it was only $12. Second, the river was PERFECT! The guide said the water was in the eighties and it felt like an angel. Third, I didn't lose my Ray Bans when I flipped over in the class 2 rapids.*




After the river wild, we got dressed and left for Lynchburg. It was so beautiful and it felt like the south. The wedding was gorgeous and we got to see some of Corey's family that lives overseas. I was loving the bride's colors. Plum and peacock green. I would drape myself in peacock feathers if it were socially acceptable. 





I hope this weekend can get me through this jam packed week of unfun activities. I have 3 nights of classes for the next 6 weeks so I think the next few weekends might consist more of reading books and writing papers. 
I cut my hair a few weeks ago. It's really a cute haircut when the stylist does it, but becomes less "adorable" when I attempt to use a round brush with a blow dryer. How do people do their own hair?!


*Class 2 Rapids are super wussy and I was embarrassed that I fell off my tube. Devin really enjoyed it though.

You forget that Devin also flipped off his tube so you can laugh right back at him. And I should have listened to my gut and eaten the cupcake. Eva didn't even share!! Thanks for coming down and sharing our river adventure with us. That's one of the funnest things I've done this year. Not saying much since I spent the majority of it in a wheelchair but it was super fun none the less!

Uh, no. Your hair still looks adorable! I love it. At least you had a cute hairdo while you were falling off you tube :)
