Saturday morning we got up with the sun to head to Memphis for our nephew's wedding. Memphis is about 5 hours from our house. We were meeting our son, Ian, and daughter-in-law, Kayla, who were also going down to the wedding, for lunch. Kayla had been in Memphis on a work trip and had scoped out a fun place for us to share a bite before going to the nuptials. She did an excellent job! Babalu Tacos and Tapas suited our taste buds perfectly! Fun little place in Memphis's midtown region.
They make guacamole table side and the watermelon infused margarita hit the spot. I'm one that enjoys the presentation of the food as much as the flavor. Babalu did not disappoint. Thanks Kayla for the perfect recommendation!
After lunch we moseyed next door to admire the vast array of sweets at Sweet Noshings. This little establishment has it all -- fudge, ice cream, candy, popcorn and they even have a nice selection of candles. Were we full from lunch? Yes. Did we still try the ice cream and fudge? YES! Delish!
Then it was to the hotel to get ready for the weekend's main event -- Marissa and Josh's Wedding! Oh how I love weddings! Here we are waiting for it all to begin.
Love Josh's face as his bride enters the church. You can tell by the look on Marissa's very soon-to-be in-laws that she's already a very welcome part of the family.
Josh married Marissa in a beautiful ceremony on a hot day in Memphis with a ton of family and friends to witness what two people look like that are truly in love.
After all the celebrating and dancing at the wedding, we did a little after partying with some of the groomsmen at The Filling Station. Overall -- great night!
Congratulations Josh and Marissa!! We are so happy for you and can't wait to see what the future will hold.
Here's something fun -- this is a picture we snapped at the wedding reception of Eric's mom, Sue, and her best friend, Brenda. Sue was Brenda's maid of honor 40 some years ago. How cool is it that they have remained such good friends for all these years.
Here we are at Monday and I'm already looking forward to next week. We have another wedding. This is the one you've heard me mention helping with before. Since all the major things are ready for the wedding and I still have a week left, I decided to make a few more things just to enhance a couple of our decorations. It's going to be beautiful! I'm also looking forward to a luncheon to celebrate the bride on Thursday at one of my favorite places - La Patisserie Chouquette! There will be lots to blog about this week!
Hope your weekend was wonderful! On a side note -- we received a phone call while driving to Memphis that a good friend of mine's father had very unexpectedly passed away on Friday night. My heart is hurting for her and her family. Life is short my friends -- don't fill yours with would-a, could-a, should-a. Get out there and do some living!!
