Off to North Cackalacky

Off to Pinehurst, North Carolina for a nice four day vacation with a few of Marrvelous's friends - including our best man! Yay, I get to meet our best man. finally. I know, strange that I haven't met such an integral part of our extended family, isn't it?

Two of Marrv's best friends from Scotland live here in the States as well (Pinehurst and West Palm, FL), both are golf pros as well and are married to American women. The friends from FL will be there (as well as the Florida Scotsman's parents ... from Scotland. And yes, the father is a golf pro in Scotland. Over there they just put golf clubs in their hands as wee boys!)

I'm really looking forward to a long weekend with a group of people Marrv considers family. We spend so much time with my friends or friends he has made here in Philly since moving to the US, but these are the friends who have known him since he was a youngin' and will be the ones with the truly obnoxious, yet hilarious toasts at the wedding.

Needless to say I'm looking forward to it - but the best part has been the look on Marrv's face every day this week. He's like a child at Christmas, so excited to be on vacation, play golf and more than anything - spend time with his best mates. It makes me so happy to see him so happy.

Enjoy your weekend y'all!


  1. aww yay! have fun! i know what you mean. i always love spending time with josh's friends and family. i know it's tough for josh being far from his homebase and i'm sure it is for marrv. have a kick ass time and see you when you get back!

  2. i would like a scottish accent, please.

    and good grief, girl. you don't sit still for long, do you? i feel like you're always jetting off.

  3. Oh my gosh we had the best time - so relaxing and so much fun all at the same time. Marrv is in a bit of depression at the moment after leaving his "family" as well as some of the best golf courses he's ever played ;)

    I felt so lucky to be able to spend a great deal of quality time with these people who mean so much to him, and will be such a tremendously important part of our lives together.

    And yes, the Scottish accents were tossing about all day and all night - good times

  4. Sounds like you'll have a great time! How exciting that you get to meet him :)

    Enjoy every second, sweetie! xoxo
