my crazy weekend in emmagrams


We had one crazy weekend. Going non stop from one thing to the next, catching red eye flights and witnessing two lovely weddings. Here’s an instagram run down of the weekend’s events.

It all started on thursday eve, packing for an earrrly flight on friday morning. (These cheap flights are cheap for a reason. wowza).

We land in Cape Town at about 8:30 am, go get our hired car (Dyl hired an old Mazda M5 (hope this right?) convertible). It was super fun, except for the part where my hair turned into dreads. We were in Cape Town for a wedding in Wellington in the afternoon so we had about 2 hours to do something. The only thing I wanted to do was visit Mr & Mrs which I hadn’t seen before and the only thing Dylan wanted to do was to get a Power and the Glory hotdog (Yes they are that amazing). We got to P&G at about 11:15 and confidently ordered our much anticipated hot dogs, they then informed us they ONLY serve lunch from 12pm.. : ( We had to seriously beg them and guilt them with the fact that we came all the way from Joburg, we had 2 hours in Cape Town city and all we wanted was one of their amazing hotdogs… after much whispering and discussion between the manager and the waitress they said we could have our ‘dogs and eat them too! yay!

 Then off we drove to Wellington, a little town 45 minutes outside of CT. We checked in to our place, and had a quick lunch and some delicious wine before the wedding.

and then we went to the wedding at the loveliest venue called Kleinevalley – Check out the view!

After a fun wedding of eating and dancing, we fell into bed only to have wake again for an early flight back to Joburg for my sister’s 30th which was a vintage Wimbledon themed party, it was so much fun and definitely worth the early flight back.

It was a truly lovely party and lots of tea and scones were consumed by all : )

The next day Dyl and I assisted on a wedding here in JHB, and on the same day had our first show day for our townhouse, so saturday night was full of preparations for the next crazy day.

I have to admit that by Sunday I was feeling tired and a bit emotional. I love being busy but this weekend took it out of me. I’m glad at the possibility of selling our place and possibly moving to a bigger one but at the same time I need some craziness to settle.

What did you all get up to this weekend?

Have your say
