{InstaLOVE} Weekend Recap

Oh hello my friends! I feel like it's been so long - oh wait it HAS been so long! My lake getaway was simply amazing! I couldn't imagine a better 4 day weekend than the one that I just experienced. Nothing beats spending time with some of my favorite people in my favorite place in the entire world, Norris Lake! I can't wait to catch up on all my reading and see what happened with you this weekend.

I have a couple things to update you on, then we can get straight to the pictures!
  • I am the lucky winner of an awesome Moroccan Hair Oil product giveaway from Kelly over at Messy.Dirty.Hair!! So exciting! If you don't know Kelly, then hop on over and pay her a visit. She has another fab NEON giveaway going on as we speak!
  • I received my first semi-mean spirited Anonymous comment on my Mama Drama post today. At first I was shocked a) at how long it was and b) the detail this person went into. However, if you're going to go through such trouble then why hide behind an Anonymous tag? if that's the way you feel then own it! Thanks for reading though! :)
  • If you live in or near Clearwater, FL then you need to get in touch with me! I will be there mid August for a conference for work so I would LOVE to meet up if there's any bloggers in the neighborhood!
  • All 5 of my bridesmaids will be in town the week of Memorial Day so I'm hoping we can all get together to go try on bridesmaids dresses! The wedding planning has not really changed any since I last updated you. I still haven't chosen the venue yet, hopefully soon though.
  • I STILL have not started reading the 50 Shades of Grey book, I have been so busy!
Without further adieu - here's my lovely long weekend in pictures...

Excuse the lake hair, but the light was gorgeous!

No filter needed

The perfect end to a truly perfect weekend

Obsess much? A summer necessity for sure!
Make it a great week!

The only reason my post was anonymous was to protect my family. I wanted to share without hurting or exposing my family. I do believe that some information needs some privacy. Thanks for your understanding.

Nikki, the pics of the lake are amazing! What a wonderful place you can escape to! I haven't started 50 Shades of Grey yet either. I keep meaning to!!

Have fun with all your ladies this weekend!

Anonymous comments mean you made it girl. No, but seriously, I actually turned them off. I think if people want to say something they need to put a name to what they are saying. Just my view.

Your weekend looked fabulous. Makes me sad it is only Wednesday now.

I get major waves of jealousness when I see your gorgeous boat/water pictures. You are soooo lucky! Before moving to Portland, I lived on a boat during the summer.. miss it so much. said...

Thanks for your comments today on my Watermelon and Lemonade color post. I was thinking the same thing about putting the vodka in the lemonade! Why do we care what random people think? I get mad about stuff like that also. At least you have a boat to enjoy yourself on. Jealous! said...

BTW... we'll be on Norris Lake this weekend for my sister's wedding. I'll look for you! LOL!
