Glam Squad Weekend #WeWearPink

SO MANY CONGRATS to all the finishers of the Marine Corps Marathon. It was the first marathon that I ran (in 2013), and it (obviously) changed my life. Read my recap here, but so many congrats to you all! Use my discount code SUSIEXJHILL at Jhill Designs to get 15% off sitewide so that you get commemorate your experience!

I kind of want to roll around in all of the pumpkin recipes that you all posted along with myself and my cohosts for Pumpkin Week. If you missed my post on Friday, do yourself a favor and check it out–you will know what you are eating for the rest of the season!

Today, I am looking at my weekend, when Alex and I started his vacation by traveling to Virginia Beach for a wedding! Joining Katie for this Marvelous Monday, and make sure you stick with me to the end–there MIGHT be something in there for you!

Shockingly, I wore real clothes this weekend. Like, REAL real person clothes. And heels. TWICE.

Starbucks coffee explosion.

Obviously, coffee was needed for that. But my coffee apparently wanted to get that party started a bit early….

Alex and I traveled to Virginia Beach, Virginia, this weekend for a wedding, and that meant that I couldn’t get by on just my usual clothing selections (which don’t always involve underwire, lol). We ate (omg sooooo much), we danced, we drank, we had a great time. Today’s post is going to go against my usual grain–pictures and few words!

Rehearsal Dinner University of Virginia Cookies and Centerpieces for Fall Wedding

HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE THE COOKIES?? wahoowah! There were several other designs, including cheerleaders! Loved it. Also, the food at the rehearsal dinner was stellar. It was held at Rockafellers Virginia Beach, and I highly recommend them!

It isn’t always scrubs and sports bras 😀

The next morning, I went for a “long” run. My first double digits since the marathon. Things felt good, but my mental state wasn’t engaged and locked in. Still, it was a GORGEOUS morning, and I was finally clicking in by the end.

Also, I had to go a bit “glam squad” on my run–I didn’t pack my running sunglasses! I was a bit of running contradiction: everything else said business, and then I had these shade on. Ah well, they worked!

Later that day, we got dressed up again, this time for the wedding!

Susie and Alex before Andrew and Marie's Wedding, which was on the beach in Virginia Beach.

The wedding was right on a patio overlooking the beach, and because it isn’t high season, it was actually lovely. A little chilly, but not bad at all, and the bride was gorgeous, and our friend was positively beaming. Just the way you want them to be!

What we were wearing underneath! I was wearing major heels (same that I had worn the night before) and believe me, my legs and feet were a bit confused! 

Photobooth pictures from Andrew and Marie's wedding! The Burlap Booth was so much fun!

We had some photobooth fun. And a lot of fun with our table and dancing! Love when you get a table where you gel with everyone, even though you’ve never met before!

Sunrise in Virginia Beach. For more on our weekend away, visit!

I woke up the next morning to see the sun rise–my favorite time of day. Later that morning, before we flew back, we saw a pod of about 10-15 dolphins right off the shore!

Then we flew back (uneventful, but almost very eventful, lol), went to the gym for a brief period–does anyone else get super stiff legs when they travel? I feel dead when I travel, even though I wear my compression socks–then went to Whole Foods for beer, ramen bar, and salad bar. 

I didn't know that @suzlyfe owned real clothes... proved wrong! #fitfluential #sweatpink Click To Tweet

Today, we are off to Michigan for a few days! We just found out that it is supposed to rain for the majority of our time. Whelp, guess we’ll just have to visit more breweries 😀 ruh roh
