Dr. Seuss, Orange Creamsicles and a Wedding

Hello Blogger friends,

(The Dr. Seuss car)

I've been out of touch for quite some time.  Busy with life, life and more life.  My Niece got married last weekend and my sister Larinda and I helpped with the flowers for the wedding.  It was fun be a part of the celebration.  My Nieces new husband has really great family and friends that came to help and it was so fun getting to know them.  Several of them are really into restoring old cars, one of which was the greatest pick-up truck painted like an orange creamsicle.  They used this truck to drive away from the wedding with.  It was adorable.  The other car was this great yellow plymouth that was restored the year Dr. Seuss died, so they dedicated it to him.  My Sister whose daughter got married is married to a wheat farmer and they used a lot of wheat to decorate the wedding
with.  The reception was in an awesome barn that has been redone to host events like this.  It was such a refreshing wedding...not everything was perfect but it was beautiful and the focus was to be together and have fun...and we did.  I had a great time driving over to the wedding a few days early with my sister Larinda and her hubby.  We laughed and talked the whole way over...maybe I was the one talking...way too much...they couldn't shut me up.  What a hoot.  Anyway it's good to be back and hope that you enjoy the photos.

Take care,

  2. oh my gosh Meagan, this is the last thing I expected to happen while enjoying your blog this evening but I think I've just seen my ultimate dream car! I am in love. Someday when I am obnoxiously wealthy and successful I will be tracking down your niece's in-laws to offer them ridiculous un-turn-downable gobs of cash for that Plymouth (and matching trailer, no way!) LOL!
    Looks like a fun wedding and a great time with family!
