My cousin Danielle got married over the weekend...thought I would share some pictures... My youngest cousin, Kerry, she is a wild child! Looks can be so deceiving! Lauren, one of the sweetest girls ever! Isn't she beautiful? The Mr. and Mrs. Danielle and my girls, before they were whisked away to a babysitter. The tables were set beautifully. And the center pieces were out of this world the pictures do not do them justice. The wild child and the grooms brother,Colin, who was a surprise to everyone. The brothers kept tight lips. Colin entered the church with the Groom, just as the bridesmaids were about to process in...let's just say there wasn't a dry eye in the house. I thought their mother was going to come undone. Danielle and Brian actually moved their wedding up one whole year, so Colin would be present, but he was shipped out earlier than expected. It was a great surprise! Candy Apple favors...adorable and the the pumpkin place cards. It was a fun night and I wish them all the happiness in the world. They are off to a great start for being so young, they bought a real fixer up about 6 months ago and spend every second working on may remember this? Did I mention the were next door neighbors growing up and until just a few days ago! It must have been tricky the day of the wedding, sneaking in and out of the houses without seeing each other!

We are in crisis mode...our coffee pot is not working. It makes the right noise, fills the house with it's rich aroma, even beeps when it is finished. But, does not produce any coffee. This is not good! I NEED coffee in the morning. And I have a big day planned today. Lots of errands, one which includes going to pick up my new camera. First stop, Starbucks. Second stop, Bed, Bath, and Beyond for a new coffee pot!

My camera is officially gone. Last Wednesday, I left my camera on the plane. It was right next to my bag under the seat in front of me and I just forgot to pick it up. I realized my mistake as I was standing in the lobby of the Ritz-Carlton in awe over an arrangement of roses, when I thought I should take a picture. Immediately, I called my mother-in-law, who works for the airline we flew, to ask what I should do to recover my camera. After giving her ALL the information I could, she was off and running. My MIL called at least 25 people in the Philadelphia airport as well as Miami, from baggage to lost and found, she even was able to relay a message to the flight crew some 30,000 miles up to check the plane, as the plane basically touched down and turned around back to Philadelphia. I filled out all sorts of paper work at both Philadelphia and Miami, have been on the phone with several people in the "warehouse" in Charlotte. Nothing, Nada, Zilch, Zip, Nil! Nobody has seen my camera... So, it leads me to believe someone found it and decided to keep it for themselves. Unbelievable!


We returned from our little vacation on Saturday evening, headed right to the shore for dinner with my parents, brother and his fiance, and of course the girls. Our trip was great...MBM's company really goes all out. There were cocktails, dinners, treats/gifts left in our room every night, spa treatments, lounging by the pool....aaaahhhh! I had grand plans of taking pictures of EVERYTHING, so you could enjoy the trip along with me. I wanted to show you my new dress...that I am in LOVE with for a lot of reasons, and I can't seem to find it online anywhere. BUT, I left my camera on the plane! That's a whole other post! I will leave you with new favorite pants... J. Crew, Watson Pant...the yellow where marked down to $14 and change, I also bought them in black and the darker khaki.
