Mostly because I have reached my recommended daily allowance for Excedrin Migraine.
I am told the party lasted until 6 am the next morning. I still don't know how Joe and I wound up with a rogue visitor from Ireland on our couch. To be fair, the gentleman was quite pleasant and tidy. I think he fled once the kids woke up and asked to play Battleship.
I thought I'd share a few pics courtesy of all the relatives who posted on Facebook:
|I'm not going to tell you EXACTLY where we ordered our bridesmaid dresses, but let's just say our experience was less than stellar. Think Pearl Harbor.|
|A certain Chicago fireman we know & love walking his gorgeous sister down the aisle.|
|The kids outlasted (and out-danced) most of the adults.|
|John the groom (right) with the same smile he wore for 24 hours straight.|
|Whoever this poor worker is, I deeply apologize.|
|Could. Not. Be. More. Beautiful.|
|This would be the after-party, right after I woke up from a little "nap" (or possible brief period of unconsciousness courtesy of some generously-poured cocktails).|
Congratulations John & Mary!!!
