LET THE FESTIVITES BEGIN!
You would not believe how busy I have been these last few days! I went to ride the trains at Griffin Park with Noah yesterday. He was a little unsure of himself. His Mama let me sit with him and I could feel his heart pounding! He, of course, said he liked it. I loved being with him. It's not bad being with my little girl either!
I worked on the yard for 3 days, I do have a garden wedding to prepare for, maybe. Bride has not made definite plans, yet. I of course, can not wait for her to make up her mind. So, the yard is top priority right now. I also manage to go estate sale shopping with my Mother. We found all kinds of new treasures. I show you later what I got. Being with my Mother is always a blessing for me. She loves the "thrill of the hunt" as well, so we make a good pair.
Of course, the big news is the wedding. Went to IHOP with the future bride this morning as well as, with my favorite sister in law, Maureen. Maureen is more of a sister than a sister-in-law. We could almost pass for sisters, except she is tall, thin and blonde. I am short, fat and very brown! The three of us discussed the wedding plans, cried and laughed. It was truly hard to leave. The server kept coming over and asking if we needed anything else, hint, hint! Guess what? I get to go wedding dress shopping with her. Is that the best or what? Sara is just super sweet, I wish I was half as sweet as her. I would be a far better person.
I got a blog award this week, which was also a thrill. Sad part is I don't know how to get the picture of the award over without all the address stuff. So I can't show it to you. I am working on learning. I did learn how to "link". Am I almost a genius or what!?
I took some pictures of new "green" colors that are going up in my home. Still practicing picture taking outside. Sara, talked a lot about the color green so these pictures are in honor of the Bride. Please notice the first picture, it is my favorite vase. Maureen gave it to me as a gift several years ago. I think I forced her, if my memory serves me correctly. It is plastic, could you tell? It is prettier close up. Anyway, I did not think I had much to say. Guess I was wrong! Thanks for all your beautiful comments, you make me feel blessed!
