Wedding and a WORKOUT!!

Sooooooooooo if you follow me on Facebook you already know I was in a wedding this weekend for my friends Brittany Brooks & BJ Mckie. It was an ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL WEDDING and I was VERY honored to participate in their SPECIAL Day!! Needless to say ya'll already know wedding are whirlwind affairs so it was HUSTLE, HUSTLE, & HUSTLE some more all weekend when you're a participant in the wedding party.

Friday started the festivities for the wedding weekend but I had PLENTY to do before I could even get to the host hotel. First I had to drive back from Charlotte cause I had to get KZ. Then LC was flying in, I had to get my dress from alterations, I needed to hit up the Fresh Market for my Okra Chips, LAWDDDDDDDDD my feet & nails needed attention (unfortunately only my nails got the attention LOLOL) thennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn I could check-in. So we got settled and whooooooooooosh off to rehearsal I went. And as usual I was STARVING but girl is always prepared, I had my almonds in my purse. Once that was over we had the dinner but I was delayed a bit cause LC didn't know what time we were going to finish and he was being an excellent example of Health & Fitness so he was just wrapping up his workout. Well obviously I couldn't leave him hanging so I made sure he got everything together and we went down to the dinner. Unfortunately I COULDN'T EAT ANYTHING, but I ended up making do with salad & cutting up the chicken they had and put it on there and that whereas my dinner. I know it was a celebration and all but I couldn't bring myself to eat mashed potatoes, BREAD, and all kinds of other goodies I just don't partake in on a normal basis. Then LC & I went out in TIRED Columbia and founds nonsense to get into until 4am!! WOWOWOW what was I thinking cause Saturday was the BIG day and I had to be up early . . .

And BAM its 8am Saturday and I'm up. . . urghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh TIRED but gotta do what I gotta do. After I reluctantly drug myself outta the bed and got dressed I headed outside and YES I'm about to say it . .  . . .WORKED OUT!!! Yes I sure did, I got in my workout while everyone slept & I mean SLEPT HARD including the Bride. So here's a pic of the hill I ran right outside our hotel
I ran from the hotel to the CVS then back to the hotel. After that I did 10 hill sprints, and finally hit the gym for a little bit of lifting then off to prepare for the wedding. Unfortunately I didn't take as many pics as I wanted to take but I took a few and I've posted them here, please feel free to view & comment. So after the wedding which was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL we went to Main St in Columbia, SC and did action shots RUNNING & JUMPING UP & DOWN!! WHEWWWWWWWWWW C'mon now?!?! A sista has on  3+ inch heels, a strapless dress, face full of makup and now I'm sweating bullets like man. Now to top it all off they wanted the bridesmaids to hold the groom. Who do ya'll think carried the weight of that load?!?! Ummmmmmmm hmmmmmmmmmmm ME! But I wouldn't have wanted it any other way because I'm sure the pics will turn out GREAT. Then they whisk us off to the reception and I have to be honest and admit . . . I HAD A DRINK (actually more than 1). For those of you who know I rarely ever drink so 1 sends me over the top. Needless to say I was done! But that didn't stop me & LC from dancing the night away as we usually do. They played our favorite Before I Let Go by Frankie Beverly so you know we cut up on that one, then we Swagged Surfed, I did the ChaCha slide cause he's NOT about to do that and we danced to several other songs between stuffing our faces with the delicious food. She had a buffet with grilled veggies and that's mostly all I ate and I ate so many I was sick LOLOLOL!! Hey if you're gonna get sick might as well be off of some veggies.

All in All it was a GREAT weekend because I got to spend time with GREAT friends & family and have a busy but relaxing time, LOL! Kyndal got to hang with MeMe (that's what they call my mom), she also got to play & wrestle with her buddy LC and here's a pic of them after they were pooped out. I mean is that not the most BEAUTIFUL thing. This was a perfect ending to a PERFECT weekend. Now I'm READY to get back to CT!!

Love KQ!!
