|The scenery around The Pond House in CT was beautiful!|
That was the last wedding I went to until this weekend, and when we initially received two "Save the Date" cards for weddings on the same weekend, we panicked for a moment. One was for my side of the family--my step-brother--and the other was for my husband's side of the family--his cousin. And they were BOTH out of town.

What a view, the Manhattan skyline in the
I'm thrilled to say both weddings and receptions went off without a hitch (that I saw, anyway), and it was great fun to see both sides of the family in one weekend. Since we had Saturday to ourselves, my hubby and I also got to spend some quality time together (our teen boys had work and sports commitments, so they stayed home and also watched and probably play a lot of Fortnight). We had a relaxing morning in the hotel, got to CT by 4 pm, and then walked around the very cute downtown area of West Hartford. A little shopping, dinner outside at Max's Oyster House, and drinks on the rooftop of the Elbow Room.

One last practical part of the weekend that made me happy: I got to wear the same dress!
