It’s July so that means it’s wedding season, and today we are off to my niece’s wedding which is taking place about 6 hours away. We are travelling 4 hours to Kingston, Ontario today to stay at my parents’ house, and then we will do the final leg of the journey to Cornwall, Ontario tomorrow morning. It will be so nice to see everyone because we all live so far apart these days that weddings are sometimes the only time I see some of my family, and I can’t wait to see my niece, Lauren, as a bride. She is absolutely gorgeous, so I know that as a bride she is going to take our breath away.
I have a lot to do this morning to get ready to leave, so lets get on with the mystery photo. Give it your best shot. Ok, ready, set, go….

Sorry I was late posting today LouAnn :). Lots to do this morning!
I was late in looking–have fun at the wedding and do not have too many of these (if they are a mixed drink)
I very rarely drink so I don’t think you have to worry :).
looks like one of those strawberry margherita’s you have been known to quaff in chinese restaurants. Have a great time at the wedding, We’re all off to Poole to see my best buddy and his newly pregnant wife (she’s been pregnant a while but it’s new to the world) I’ve not seen them since new year so I’m expecting debauchery and mayhem especially as I’ve found a local farmer who makes his own cider and sells it cheap in plastic containers. yummy…..
Wow! Quaff, debauchery, and mayham all in the same comment. You are a man of big fancy words today LOL!!
I guess so, can you tell I’m excited?
Yes! I’m just trying to figure out if you’re more excited about seeing your friends or drinking the cider :).
I also see this as something slushy in a long-stemmed glass, but even if that’s correct, I’m afraid I have no idea what the contents could be. My experience in such things is quite limited.
Bon voyage and happy wedding.
Thanks Steve :).
Must be a slush puppy…. when reading the top portion of the post the top of the photo was showing and I immediately said oh that is easy it’s someones bald head…. but I go with the slush puppy, if it contains alcohol all the better… just don’t have too many and drive the police might just have you repeating you ABC’s backwards which I can’ t do without a drink let alone with one… have a good time and be careful on the road… we want you back next week….
I very rarely drink because I get hangovers too easily, but even if I do, the reception is in the hotel we are staying at, so it’s all good! And thank you for caring about my safety – gotta love blogging friends :).
Hmm, I don’t think I’m sophisticated enough to do this one. 😛 I keep bouncing back and forth between some kind of fancy cocktail or some kind of funk sorbet dessert. Looking forward to seeing what the answer is!
P.S. I hope you have a great time at the wedding!
Thanks Becky :). Do you think anyone will mind if I ignore them and read all the way there in the car?
Hahahaaa, girl after my own heart!
I don’t think so, if they did get offended it would be a sign they didn’t know you very well, LOL. Books are brain food. 😀
You’re right – they are pretty used to it. I am freaking out because the third book in one of my favourite series of all times comes out on July 15th!!! It’s the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness, and the third book is called The Book of Life. I’m in a discussion group for it on Facebook, and the excitement and anticipation is like nothing I have ever experienced before. I have a signed copy of the book on order from Barnes and Noble in the US, but it probably won’t get here until I’m ready to leave for my trip, so I may have to buy the ebook too :). Only you would understand why I can’t wait LOL!!
You know, I spotted that you had liked a review of the third book in that series and I just knew you were going to be freaking out with over-excitement!!! It’s awesome that you’ve pre-ordered a signed copy. I hope it lives up to your expectations and that it arrives in time for you to take it along with you! 😀
I think that’s unfair, as you probably need to drink a couple before it looks like that. 🙂
Hangover prevention/cure. Hangovers are mostly caused by dehydration. Alcohol being a diuretic. About 1 pint of water before bed is a good preventative. About a pint in the morning is a passable cure. Enjoy the event. 🙂
Thanks Graham but I find avoidance works even better LOL!
Good morning everyone. It’s wedding day and it’s warm and sunny out. Yayy!! You are all very smart, or just like to drink a lot LOL, because it is a closeup of a fancy drink that I had on my girl’s weekend at the camera show. Don’t ask me what it was called, but it was yummy and bloody expensive I might add. I don’t drink often because I would much rather spend the money on books :). Have a great weekend!!
I knew it was a fancy drink but got online too slowly to make the guess! Hope the wedding is/was great fun. Am I late for that too?
No, you’re not too late :). We are just getting ready to drive the final 2 hour leg and the ceremony is at 3pm.
I am going to take it that I was right then!
