Something Blue

This weekend we attended my friend Alicia’s wedding, you might remember her bridal shower a few weeks ago

We had fun seeing old friends and catching up with them.

Here are the highlights from the wedding, which had a blue theme (the bride’s favorite color).

We ate a ten course meal, which was way too much food for me and I was full by the third entree that was served. BUT, I had to make room for this delicious dessert!


Red Velvet Cheesecake - from Cheesecake Factory

We also had a lot of fun taking pictures inside the photo booth. We took a lot of pictures with friends. I came home with at least 10 pages of pictures from the photo booth. We posted our pictures on scrapbooking papers for the couple to include in their wedding book.

Ahhhh, I just love weddings. They are so romantic, so beautiful and so fun!

Sunday Prep

While I write this post, the house smells like how I would imagine a spice market would smell like.  I just finished cooking a batch of Moroccan Couscous dish for the week. Smells delicious!

Its needs to cool, then I separate and store each servings so I can just eat it throughout the week.


I am traveling mid-week this week so instead of cooking a few dishes for the week, I figured I will just “assemble” my meals from what I have on hand instead of cooking.

Now I’m off to do the rest of my Sunday chores! Hope you had a fun weekend.


  1. The cous cous looks divine! Yum! and such fabulous photos from the wedding! LOVE your purple dress! ❤

  2. That picture of you guys kissing is amazing! (If that didnt sound strange I’m not sure what does.)

    Anywho, the bride is gorgeous, you are gorgeous, your man is also gorgeous, the cake is gorgeous. What an overall just amazing looking wedding. I love that purple dress.
