Let the fun begin...

It's going to be a super busy weekend around here.  As if the last few months weren't busy too!  We have a sitter coming tonight and staying for the weekend so that we can attend a Rehearsal Dinner tonight, Jon can take Lucas to his baseball tournament on Saturday as I am getting prepped for the wedding, then Jon will rush to meet me there and after what will likely be little to no sleep we will start over on Sunday at the ballpark yet again for Sunday's games.  Whew...that was a mouthful.

I can't wait to post pictures of this wedding.  It's going to be so pretty with all the burlap, lace, mason jars, babies breath and such.  I lucked out and get to walk down the aisle with my stepbrother so at least there will be no "awkward mumbling because you don't really know this person" for that day!!  I also know that he will at least boost my confidence if I'm having a Jenny Downer moment...because y'all these things happen regularly around here.

It appears we will not be slowing down as a family until the end of October.  I am ready for a weekend of absolute nothingness.  It's supposed to start cooling down significantly soon.  For me, this is when I want to stay in my pj's all day, pull out my favorite blanket and watch my old school movies (About Last Night, Steel Magnolia's, Footloose, you name it and I'll watch it) or read (this is my favorite).  I have actually been prepping for slow time and I just downloaded about 5 new books to my Kindle...I'm ready!

Anyone out there started shopping for Christmas yet?  If you tell me you are done then we are no longer friends.  I have every intention of being finished by Black Friday - which really translates to I will be opening my door every 10 minutes on Christmas Eve to see if my last packages have arrived from my last minute shop-a-thon online!!!  I'm tired just thinking about it.

Keep your eyes out (the one or two of you who read here) for the pictures to come soon!
