So since I’ve been home I’ve been quite terrible at keeping up with blogging (and journal writing, and running, and studying Japanese ..among other things). Who knew that so much work could go into one single day? My roommate Courtney always said she was going to elope and I’m not starting to see the value in that concept 🙂
Highlights of the past week:
-I got to enjoy another fabulous bridal shower thrown by my maid of honor, madison (with lots of behind the scenes work from my awesome mother)
-I spent 5 hours one day shopping with grandma for clothes for the honeymoon…she’s great
– I got to listen to my little sister give a wonderful talk in church about her experiences at camp the week before (I’ll have her write a little bit about it on here later)
-I called my mother in law ‘mom’ for the first time 🙂
– I went shared a Silano pizza at Bertuccis (my favorite) with Caleb for his birthday after getting him fitted for his tux …great brother/sister bonding time (and the last we’ll have alone for another 2 years)
-I survived a root canal.
– I babysat the cutest little boys for 25 hours over the course of 2 days = craziness.
-I had a basement sleepover with the sisters.
-I got my ring cleaned and can’t stop looking at it 🙂
TOMORROW WE LEAVE FOR OUR TRIP!
its my very last family vacation as an unmarried woman 😛
Stop 1: Palmyra, NY for the wonderful HILL CUMORAH PAGEANT!
Stop 2: Nauvoo, IL
Stop 3: Eureka Springs, AK. Why are we going to Arkansas? For a family reunion. Is ANY of my family from Arkansas? No. Then WHY are we going to Arkansas? I really can’t even tell you – but I’m still so excited 🙂
We’ll be back the 23 or the 24 depending on how long my mom and I feel like driving … and then its just a matter of days before the wedding guests start arriving!
