A 2 for 1 day!

Last weekend, for our Easter break, I drove to our family's beach house and spent Thursday through Sunday with my nana, Uncle Jack, Aunt Debbie, and my "baby" cousin. That is what I will always call her even though she is 10 1/2 already!

Us back in 2002

I really want to live at the beach this summer as my mom did the summer before she left for college and as my Uncle Jack did the year after his freshman year of college. I did get some beach time, but I also went out job hunting. Being Easter weekend, it was difficult. My mom did say she would give me a week or two after school gets out (May 10!!! WOOHOO!!!) to find a job down there. If not, it is home for the summer.

I went home Sunday evening. It was rather late when I arrived so I basically headed on to bed. Monday, my mom and I headed off shopping. We needed to exchange a dress that she purchased for me (wrong size) for sorority stuff when I have to wear a white dress. This one has cap sleeves so I can wear my quill without having to wear my sweater or shrug all of the time. I really do like it, but am still going to hunt down the perfect white dress for such occasions. Something a little fancier.

However, we did shop! I have weddings coming up 3 weekends in a row starting May 14th. That is my cousin's wedding and I will be wearing this dress:

It is a Jessica Simpson dress and I love the way it looks and feels. I just need to find the jewelry and other accessories to go with it. I may just end up wearing bone colored heels for the wedding. The best part of this dress is I can dress it up and dress it down. I think it will be great next year for socials!

The next weekend, my daddy's twin sister is getting remarried. It will be outside by the pond and a big barbecue afterwards. We were told to wear anything and feel free to be barefoot. Well I just can't see myself wearing shorts (as some people will be wearing) and going barefoot. So I choose this seersucker sundress I purchased last year. I am in the blue. That is my friend Piper who blogs at Tarleton West. We were in Myrtle Beach last summer for the July 4th holiday.

The final wedding is actually the wedding of my 10th grade biology teacher. We became very close through the year and have remained very close. She left school to pursue some more advance education but we still kept in touch. I was so excited to receive an invite to her wedding. It will be black tie and after the ceremony, there will be dinner and dancing at the Carolina Country Club.

In this day and time, it is hard to find a true cocktail dress with appropriate length so I went with a long gown. The following pictures do not do this dress justice at all. I am absolutely in love with this gown and it fits perfectly, and unlike the pictures, it is the perfect length.

It is actually purple, and I love it!

And here I thought most weddings took place in June!
