What a hectic past few weeks it has been. First I was sick, then my boyfriends sister got married, and then I had midterms. And now I am home at my parents house on vacation for the next week with a potentially sprained ankle. Great! But luckily my mom saved my dad's walker from when he had a spinal fusion last year, so I've been using that to get around the house.
Now that I have some free time to literally sit and do nothing, I thought I would share some of the photos from my boyfriends sisters wedding in the Poconos.
Here are some photos of the resort.
Friday was a pretty hectic day and we did not make it up there until after 9, so we met his family at Mt. Airy casino where we ran the Blackjack table. (I'm getting pretty good at this gambling thing, not that I do it often!)
Saturday was pretty low key. Adam needed to get his hair cut, and we wanted to explore the area a bit, so we hit the road and did just that! What was pretty strange is that the area where we were staying was close to where this fugitive is believed to be hiding out. (Here is an article in case you are not aware of the giant manhunt going on in Pennsylvania). They had wanted posters in most of the shops we entered, and we must have seen half a dozen news vans while out.
Here we are out to lunch. We've become big fans of ordering lots of appetizers instead of investing in just one single entree. And I got this fall beer sampling to top if all off. Adam had a Sam Adams, but also helped me work on my drinks as well, as I have become quite the light-weight.

The samples were Woodchuck Pumpkin Cider, Goose Island Oktoberfest, Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat and Troegs Master of Pumpkins.
Saturday night was the rehearsal dinner, and me being who I am packed about 6 dress options for the weekend. I decided to go with a black and sheer dress, and had picked up a pair of tights earlier in the day as the temperature really seemed to drop!

We had a delicious buffet dinner followed by s'mores around the campfire. After the campfire, we went back to the house to change and then headed back to the casino for round two, where I decided to sit out and just watch everyone else gamble.
Sunday was the big day. I went back and forth between two difference dresses to wear, and decided to go with my blue Banana Republic dress. Unfortunately this was before I got my awesome new Canon Rebel, so all photos are that awful iPhone quality!

Here comes the bride!
They are married! Mr. and Mrs. McQueen!
Here are a few other photos from the night!
What a fun night with lots of dancing. Did I mention that Adam's sister and dad had a lip sync battle? Once I figure out how to save the video and then upload it on here, I will do so! Following the reception, there was a big bonfire once again with s'mores and music and lots of laughs!
Check-out was at 11am on Monday, and in an attempt to save some time and also sleep a bit longer, I decided to throw on a shower cap so I didn't have to dry and straighten my hair (so I apologize that it looks awful in the following pictures). After we left the house we headed over to the resort to meet up with Adam's sister and now husband. Here are some photos from the resorts observatory tower and outdoor patio.

And alas, my lunch, a lobster burger.
All in all it was a great weekend, and I could have slept through the entire next week had I not had midterms.
