Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

Hubby and I left early Saturday morning so we could attend the Wedding of my 2nd cousin Kyton Carolina, who was getting married to Shivon Anderson in Mt. Vernon, NY.  We wanted to be on the road before 9:30 am so that we could cross the GW Bridge before noon…unfortunately it didn’t happen.

It was smooth sailing going across the Delaware Memorial Bridge

New Jersey

Driving the New Jersey Turnpike wasn’t too bad either…until Exit 11 and that’s when the backup occurred due to road construction!

Finally the skyline of NYC

Crossed the GW way off schedule

We finally made it to New Rochelle at 1:00 pm. but with less than an hour to relax and converse with our friends before dressing.  Sherri and I sat outside and had a Barcardi Mojito which definitely helped me unwind, hubby stay inside and talked with Curtis.

Unfortunately my family fun ended abruptly when our son called to tell us he was rear-ended in the school parking lot after football practice.  Hubby and I never made it to the reception at Glen Island Park instead we turned around and headed back to Delaware.

What a WWW – Whirlwind Weekend Wedding!

BTW – Kyton was a Jr. Usher in our Wedding 23 years ago – talk about feeling old!

On Saturday after the power was restored the men and I jumped into the car and drove to New Rochelle, NY for a cousin’s Baby Shower.  Nothing makes you more aware of your own aging until your “baby” cousins start having babies, in this case having her 2nd – a boy!  My cousin was just a toddler when she danced at our wedding and now she has her own dancing toddler.  Traffic on the Jersey Turnpike and GW Bridge was terrible and we got a little lost but once we arrived it was  a fun, fun family affair.  I was also able to see my “friend-for-life” and hopefully this weekend she and her friend will be stopping in Delaware so we can do some more catching up.

I love my family and had a great time – Congratulations and God Bless India and Mike!

Do you hear the theme song from “Taxi”?
