Week in review...

My younger sister is getting married tomorrow. Hooray, right? I guess. I was asked at the Bridal luncheon today if I'll cry but the asker did not know that we just aren't that close. There are 6 years in between us which means we are almost in 2 different generations. And, we've always been in very different life settings. She's always been a single, college student and I've been married, divorced, married again, and now mother of a toddler. She works and I do laundry. She has extra money to spend on hair products and wonders whatever will she do when she gets married and has to cut out the tanning sessions. I wonder if I have enough left this month in my grocery budget to buy bread. See, two totally different lives. Sometimes I miss living like her (way back when), but then I remember dear hubby and the wee one and I am totally over it.

Anyhoo, we've been busy this week.. Not only have we had the mandatory bridal luncheons, family dinners, and general drop bys that go with a wedding week, but I've shared hostessing duties for a baby shower this week, put a contract on a house, listed our home with a realtor, run tons of wedding related errands, worked on teaching the wee one to WALK down the aisle rather than run at break neck speed (she's the flower girl!), and fielded tons of phone calls as to who is arriving when and who's staying where (?). Tonight we have the rehearsal dinner with tons of out of town family that have never met Emory. None of them have brought their own kids, so she is center stage and doesn't have to share the spotlight. I'm kind of excited about showing off my girl and all her lastest tricks. Tomorrow we have a birthday party in the morning and then it's off to the church for pictures and the actual wedding. What a week! Can we possibly fit anything more into this week?

Next week will seem down right boring comparatively. Oh no, that's right. We have the house inspection, viewings of our house, laundry, mopping, changing of the sheets, and the list goes on and on...

Have a great weekend!

You left out the important part. YOU GET TO EAT CAKE! Please eat it, you're getting too skinny and making me look bad :)
