Weekending-The Wedding

Why is it that the best weekends always fly by so quickly? I swear I blinked and it was Sunday evening. This weekend was a great one, and I would love to rewind and do it all again!

On Thursday, my mom treated me to a pedicure and some 'me' time, and it was MUCH needed. I went to a new salon than just opened and it was super nice, and seriously the best service I have ever had at a nail salon.
On Friday, I had my 6 week postpartum appointment, and ran some errands with the littlest little. The afternoon was then spent getting ready for my brother in laws wedding rehearsal. In the meantime, my guys just chilled out watching cartoons.
All dressed up and ready to go!
After rehearsal we went to the grooms dinner, and Jackson ran around non stop. Which he also did at rehearsal. In fact, based on how Friday went we made the decision to not bring either of the boys to the reception at all. We felt kind of guilty, but also totally realized that as long as they were there, we would have a really hard time enjoying ourselves and appreciating the evening!

On Saturday, we headed over for pictures. And I of course had to snag a picture of the beautiful flowers. Summer blooms are just gorgeous right now!
Jackson was once again all over the place. But also adorable.

They were able to get about two pictures before Jackson decided he was over it. It was naptime, it was hot out, and he was hungry. As he and the flower girl are the same age and she was holding up about as good as he was, everyone decided it just wasn't worth the struggle to try and have them walk down the aisle. So, our adorable ring bearer was brought over to grandma and grandpas instead and crashed for a 4 hour nap! With that, we were officially kid free for the night!
The ceremony was at our church (AMEN for indoors and AC!). My in laws clean up pretty good, don't you think? :-)
One of my best friends from my childhood was the maid of honor, and walked with my husband. Who cleans up pretty well, if I do say so myself! Is it possible to have a crush on the person you live with? Ha!
The bride looked STUNNING!
After the ceremony we got checked into our hotel and met up with the bridal party for drinks. 
Both of us enjoying our first beer in ages!
Love this girl so very much!

The rest of the night was spent dancing, catching up with old friends, and just having a great time. For the first time in a very long time, I felt like Mackensey the person, and not Mackensey the mom. We both let loose, danced to our song, and enjoyed a few dances to some R Kelly, who is my husbands favorite of all time. Yes, I'm serious.

Sunday morning came too quickly, and one of us was feeling better than the other. I'll leave it up to you to guess who was who ;-) We indulged in some McDonalds breakfast, picked up the boys, and took it easy the rest of the day. Lincoln was in the best mood and full of smiles!
We topped off the night with Game of Thrones and JalapeƱo Popper pizza, and ready or not, we are off to tackle another Monday!
