Wedding Weekend in Atlanta 2013

Last week and weekend was consumed with talk of white fabric and baby kicks.  We laughed at goofy Mia antics, we teared up at Haley in gorgeous wedding dresses, and we cooed over teeny onesies.  It was a really good time.

Last week's bump photo: 8.5 inches and 1.2 lbs.  (This week he's up to 1.5 lbs, and kicking his mom awake at 6am!)  This might be my favorite photo in this series yet.

Now, I obviously can't post photos of the wedding dress extravaganza.  It is a sacred and secret experience.  However, I can post a few details!  It should be noted that everything was stunning on Haley, and she will be an absolute vision walking down the aisle next March.  Also, none of these dresses is THE dress, which we did find and fawn over.  Mission accomplished.

This dress on Haley was absolutely exquisite.  Trust me when I say that it draped beautifully.

The crystal belt on this one really emphasized her tiny waist.  Plus, it made her engagement ring really sparkle!

Just look at this veil!  It completed the bridal look perfectly!

We went on some great walks around Roswell Area Park, which identifies all the trees found on the trails.  This one in particular is my favorite.

Haley teased Mia by swinging very high one morning; she was concerned about her aunt's well-being.  

How cute is this view?

 On Saturday, Mom departed, and JP and I took Haley to Sweetwater Brewery.  She was less than enthused (just kidding!).  They do tastings for a couple of hours, and Haley was very excited to try out Sweetwater Blue on tap.

See?  I wasn't lying about her excitement.

I was really impressed by their tap water.  Cheers!

My husband is really patient.

By Easter Sunday night, JP was worn out.  The negative of having a black dog is that she blends right into dark photos, but Mia is curled up next to him on the far side of the couch.
This photo was taken at 9:30pm.

It was a great long weekend trip!  We couldn't have had a better time.


  1. So much fun to "share" your week/weekend with you. Love all the pictures. And yes, Haley will be a beautiful bride -- but then, she's always beautiful!!! That last picture of JP and Mia is soooo much like one I have of Paul sleeping on the floor (bad back!) when we lived in Dallas with Harry curled up right beside him. Men and their dogs -- timeless!!

    1. I love men and their best friends; it's definitely a classic combination!
