Weekend Update

Time for a super fast action-packed weekend update!  I'm off to Minnesota today to hang out with TWP for a couple days - we're going to redo the flower girl's bedroom, and sneak in some shopping and wedding crafting as well... lots to do and the days are flying by too quickly!

This past weekend was chock full of fun:

~ Friday night I saw my cousin's play, School House Rock, which is yes, based on the Saturday morning cartoons that used to be on TV.  We heard everything from "I'm Just a Bill" to "Conjunction Junction" and tons of other great songs.  The kids did a fantastic job with the show, and really worked their butts off to entertain us :)

~ Saturday was an Appleton shop-a-thon with Mom.  We started at Archivers at the crack of dawn, and somehow managed to end the day there as well!  In between we hit just about every craft store in that zip code, found three different pairs of possible wedding earrings for me, four possible pairs of shoes for mom, and managed to squeeze in some Panda Express and Cold Stone!  (And we'll be literally squeezing in our dresses in a few weeks as a result!  So worth it though...)

~ We also watched Bride Wars (can you tell I've hit one-track-mind-obsession-territory now?).  Great movie!  Such fun.  Obviously, not an Oscar winner, but it's definitely going to be one of those flicks that you constantly watch when it eventually airs incessantly on the weekends on a cable channel.

~ Today's celebration was my other younger cousin's First Communion mass and party.  She looked so grown-up in her little white dress (and veil... which we all took to trying on throughout the day), and she managed to eat a chocolate donut without getting a bit of frosting on herself :)  One of the other party guests is getting married the weekend after me, so we had fun comparing notes and commiserating about the last stretch before the big day.

Less than three weeks!  I know I'll be sad once it's all over, but at the moment it can't come fast enough.  All of the fun dreaming and planning is past, and we're to the "get this shiznit done NOW" stage.  So - I'm off to get some more stuff done before we're down to only 19 days!

How old is your cousin? Ben's 4th and 5th grade chorus put on a show every year. Do you think they can perform the show? School House Rock would be awesome!
