Had fun at an out of town wedding this weekend! My wonderful friend B's daughter was married Saturday. The wedding was lovely. The bride was radiantly beautiful. My friend sewed most of the bridesmaid dresses and the jacket for her outfit. Every detail seemed perfect! The food was fabulous~can't remember when I've had such a yummy dinner! Just a totally fun night visiting old friends.

The spent the next day with my childhood best friend. It was great catching up! She is just as much fun as ever. It was so nice to have a weekend away. It had been ages and I won't be leaving it so long again!

The other day the mister and I went looking at wedding bands~amazing! I had seen one I thought he might like, and he did, but would prefer it all polished rather than the combo of brushed/polished gold. And after all this time of being told 'we have a band to match your ring' (we will be engaged 3 years tomorrow!) they finally were able to show me the band, and sure enough, it looks great! Now we are waiting to hear if his ring can be ordered in the way he wants it. Baby steps, baby steps!

I remember the night before~there was a HUGE spider in my bedroom. I was unable to catch it (to return it outdoors) and decided to sleep on the couch. My daughter woke me up in the morning~yelling to me that her Dad had called and told her a plane had flown into a building in New York. We turned the TV on to see the horrific image of the second plane flying into the 2nd tower. Never in my life will I forget the sound of that plane or those images. My spider emergency didn't seem like such a big freaking deal anymore.

Wishing everyone a day of peaceful remembrance today...
