Well, in eleven and a half hours, it will be the start of another week. (Sigh)
This weekend was so fun-packed and seriously just flew right by. But I'm so thankful because this week is short for us because we're going HOME!!!!
Before I share our weekend fun with you, I would like to highlight a few random facts that I learned over the weekend:
1). The Portugese know how to party. I mean, they REALLY know how to boogie.
2). Ice cream, yogurt, cottage cheese...(or any dairy products really) cause some major, unwanted phlem.
3). People will look at you funny when you eat two pieces of wedding cake and 45 strawberries dipped in the chocolate fountain.
4). It is never EVER okay to go running in jean shorts, black socks and tennis shoes, and pungent musky cologne. (Yes, I witnessed this today while taking my dogs for a walk...only in Rhode Island).
So, as I mentioned before, Mr. Ruby and I had a fantastic weekend. It started off right at our favorite BYOB sushi place on Friday night with pals.
Last night, we went to a wedding. It was such a fabulous time.
It started off with getting ready. I conveniently had a hair appointment for a highlight and trim..and so I had her jazz up my hair a bit for the wedding. I got home to put on my makeup and dress when I heard a foreign man's voice coming from our guest bedroom. I walked in, and Mr. Ruby was watching a YouTube video on how to tie a tie. Haha.
After the beautiful ceremony, we had some time to kill before the reception, so of course we headed to a bar. We drove around for awhile and finally found this little dive bar. Let me tell you, when we walked in, you would have thought we were either 1) Celebrities or 2) Six-headed purple ogres. Everyone stopped what they were doing, turned to look at who was walking in the door, and just stared. I mean look-into-your-soul/burn-a-hole-through-your-shirt stare. It may have been the fact that we were all dressed to the nines while everyone else in the bar had on Budweiser hats and sleeveless t-shirts.
Oh well. It was a good time.
Then, the reception got started. We (of course) sat at the "fun table" and were seriously laughing the entire time. There was tons of delicious food, and the reception site was right on the water, so it made for some quite amazing pictures.
Once the music started, Mr. Ruby and I hit the dance floor immediately...and didn't leave it until after the last song. We belted out to Journey, learned a Portugese routine, participated in one intense dance-off, and sweat our buns off!
SUCH a fun night. Thanks to Paul and Lynn for making my first Portugese wedding a 100% success!!!
