{A Texas Wedding}

One of Dustin's best friends from college got married 2 weekends ago in Abeline Texas (where he went to college). Sure Dustin was excited to be the best man in his friends wedding, but I think he was more excited to go to his 2 favorite restaurants...Chicken Express, and Rosa's. I worked Wednesday Night Dustin picked me up that morning @ 8 and we hit the road. I slept until he woke me (very excited I might add) to have lunch at Chicken E. It was good but i think you had to be from Texas to really appreciate it.
Lunch day 2...Rosa's
Dustin gave me a private tour (just like he did back in the day when he attended Abilene Christian)

Erin and Jana are the cutest funniest couple!

The reception was at this children's illustrators museum that Erin was the web master for.

I had to snap this picture of D...b/c he really cleans up nice.
I told you adorable and funny
Jana bought the bridesmaids these adorable pink chucks for the reception.

Erin and Jana both don't like cake so they decided to do a pie table.

Another one of D's favorites...snow cones.

So this is the back yard of Erin's house...the lawn was mid shin...The first thing I said to Erin as we walked in the door was "I'm tellin' Jana to rethink this marriage don't even mow the lawn!". Erin said he tried once this summer, but his allergies were so bad he nearly died! So when they left Saturday after the wedding, I went at it and cut that law (one of my favorite jobs).


Vacationing with the Parker's never gets old...I was lucky enough to get invited to Aruba at the beginning of this month to celebrate a family wedding!
Italian dinner out...complimentary lemon cello shots to cap it off!
Birds that lived at our resort
Sarah getting lucky
Our day consisted of beach, water, beach water...AHHHH
I loved walking the beach and watching the kite surfers showoff.
Me jumping off the pirate ship! ARGG
Sarah and I spent an afternoon aboard this pirate ship! The cruise included snorkeling, rope swing and cocktails! We snorkeled, over a reef and a WWII ship wreck. We also meet a couple of new friends.
A couple of us from the ship went out for some drinks and slot machines afterwards...because that what you do in Aruba.
How could you turn this cheery thing down?
The wedding was amazing! A boat drove into the lobby of the resort picked up all the guest and drove us out to a private island.
As you can see the tans were coming along nicely.
The amazing view even included flamingos!
The groomsmen looked stunning in there seersucker suits.

And the gals look beautiful in their flowing blue dresses!

There was a running joke that I was Sarah's brother we are hanging with the cousins.

Matt and Megan's first dance.
This week in Aruba sure made a destination wedding look good!
