Weddings, weddings, weddings.

It's been a little crazy around here.  Last week the girls went to stay with my mom for one last trip, where all of them would be together, before Ri gets married.  I spent the week working on Ri's quilt in the hope of getting it done in time for her bridal shower, and hopefully, before she got back from Mom's, so she wouldn't see it before Saturday.  Thankfully, I did get it finished, literally 5 minutes before they pulled in the driveway Monday afternoon.  Whew!!  I'll post pics soon.  Tues., we drove down and got Lys, her Maid of Honor, who'll be staying with us the rest of the week.  Yesterday Ri had braces put on, we nearly finished getting everything we'll need for the shower, and I made a small adjustment to her wedding dress.  I also helped Beenie and T.Lynn with their gifts for Ri.  Today (Thurs.), we're going to the salon to practice up-dos for Lys and Ri, and once we have one we like for Ri, we'll head off to a local garden to have her bridal shoot.  Thankfully, Lys is a photographer, so we could arrange this to suit us.  Tonight we plan to start woking on some of the shower things like making the mints, and putting the favors together.  I can't wait to share pictures of those.  Tomorrow we have a bunch of errands to run around Kay's volunteer work and Beenie's guitar lesson, then we will head back home to do all that we can in advance of the shower.  I also hope I can squeeze in some time to start working on my dress for my brother's wedding.  Which is next week, so no rest for the weary, or is that wicked?
I hope to be back soon, with plenty of pictures.

    1. I agree. I haven't even looked over the younger girls' schoolwork yet this week. I have no idea whether or not they have done their assignments properly. I may need two lattes with a double shot of espresso.

  2. Wow! I guess I didn't realize your RI was getting married. Congratulations and sorry I haven't kept up. I envy you, but not really.. LOL. That sounds like a too-busy life right now. I'm sure you are thrilled to have her taken care of by such a fine man.
