One Determined Wedding Guest

by Meghann on September 9, 2010

Get ready for it…


I guess I was more determined then I had originally thought in catching that bouquet. πŸ˜‰

I think what’s even better is realizing how no one else is even trying for the bouquet. All the ladies seem to be just looking on with shock and aww. They’re probably thinking β€œWho is this crazy woman up front.” Ha!

Also, can I just take a minute to say how BEAUTIFUL of a bride my friend Christie was?

Stunning! πŸ™‚

This morning I followed my Chicago Training Plan and completed a 6 mile tempo run.

  • 2 miles @ 9:30 pace
  • 2 miles @ 7:45 pace
  • 2 miles @ 9:30 pace

I can tell the weather is slightly becoming just a tad bit cooler. Instead of looking like a drowned rat when I returned, I resembled more of a damp dog. Progress people… progress. πŸ˜‰

Yogurt in a Cantaloupe Bowl for Breakfast


This was 1/2 a cantaloupe stuffed with Blueberry Oikos (HLS coupon), honey peanut butter, and Kashi Go Lean Crunch.

I’ve been a victim of a crazy bouquet grabber! Congrats, I’m glad your hard work paid off! πŸ™‚

I love the pictures! Watching you jump for the bouquet reminds me of my own wedding. One of my friends caught the bouquet but then threw it back in the air like it was a hot potato! My roomate in college ended up being the winner. My friends and I, to this day, still give Kay a hard time for “re-tossing” the bouquet!

I love the one where your hair is flying back as you’re diving forward. Way to put the effort in.

4 Madeline - Greens and Jeans September 9, 2010 at 9:37 am

Haha, you are definitely boxing out the girl in the black and yellow dress! Too funny!

Lovely pictures! What kind of camera/lens do you use?

9 Meghann September 9, 2010 at 10:29 am

These photos aren’t from my camera. They were the photographer’s from the wedding.

Nope. It was actually purple. The photographer had flashes set up all around the hall

Haha, that’s so the opposite of my reaction to the bouquet toss I had to go up for this weekend. I deliberately tried to stay out of the way of catching it.

My boyfriend on the other hand was forced to catch the garter belt. Literally, forced to by his fellow groomsmen.

I LOVE the new blog layout by the way.

15 Erica September 9, 2010 at 10:20 am

hahahhahahhahaha ! That is one awesome set of pictures πŸ˜‰ Way to get it girl! I’ll tell ya…I caught the bouquet at my sisters wedding and sooner after was engaged. Just saying is all…. mmm what a breakfast. I think I need to pick up another loupe from Publix!

OMG!!! I am sending this post to my best friend Laurel (the blonde girl next to you that you met at Christie’s bachelorette party). TOO funny! I think she wanted the bouquet, too! πŸ™‚

17 Marina September 9, 2010 at 10:24 am

Amazing photos πŸ˜€
I always want to catch the bouqet, but I never have the luck πŸ™‚
It’s good I guess, because catching it always involves sth stupid afterwards, like stupid dancing or singing…not my cup of tea πŸ™‚

LOL!That is the funniest thing I’ve seen this week.The look on your face in the jump picture is absolutely priceless.

23 Katie September 9, 2010 at 11:17 am

You were out for blood when the announcement that the bride was going to toss her bouquet. That was hilarious. And you looked around afterward, like “What now!”
Wow..that is so funny.

Great pictures! You looked stunning in that blue dress, and your bride-friend was absolutely gorgeous! That dress just highlighted her beautiful red hair. She’s like a bride in a magazine!

28 Matt September 9, 2010 at 12:03 pm

Haha. You gotta show them girls who’s boss right?

29 Nicci September 9, 2010 at 12:11 pm

You Go Girl, I did that at one of my best friends weddings. I was suppose to be the only single girl going for it, but then her lil 16 yr old sis tried to jump in front of me. Thank goodness for looong arms…I caught it!!

30 Caitlin (EatFeats) September 9, 2010 at 12:30 pm

“I think what’s even better is realizing how no one else is even trying for the bouquet”

Haha that couldn’t be farther from true. I thought one of the pics was going to be of you and the girl in the black and yellow dress wrestling on the floor!

At least you won! πŸ™‚
