- Friday Orion and I chilled, picked up my much awaited Bridesmaid dress from David's, bought a shower gift, and I finished planning my games for Jessie's shower, wrapped shower gifts, put all my stuff together for Saturday, and had coffee with our Pastor!
- Saturday Orion worked at the hotel, I got myself together and headed to the shower. Saturday afternoon was Jessie's shower. It was such fun! I'm so excited to spend this time with her as she plans her big day! She had a great turn out, people love her and it was good to see it and be apart of it all. (more to come on this later)
Saturday night we all headed to Celebration to hear Jimmy preach! He did great! Then we all headed to "our" spot Chili's in B'ville for some chips n salsa and conversation! So much fun, great food, with great friends! I am thankful for the great friends we have in our lives.
- Sunday, we went to church, headed to the picnic. Brought Bentley to meet everyone! He's a hit, they love him and so do we! Came home Sunday afternoon and hit the garage to clean. Now, we haven't really cleaned the garage since we moved into our house. Other than putting shelves up and throwing stuff on them. But we tackled the garage on Sunday. We're a good team. I loved it. One pile for throw away, one for Good Will and another for Orion to go threw and pitch! I also organized my closets, made fresh salsa per the request of Hubby, and we watch the closing ceremonies. Such a good day, tiring by the end of the weekend. But I am so glad we got stuff done that we'd been putting off for weeks.
Next weekend it's off to Wisconsin for my much awaited girls weekend! I can't wait.

My parents left for Italy this Sunday, for the next ten days they will be enjoying gondola rides, exploring Milan, seeing where Romeo and Juliet took place, and other parts of Italia! Aren't you jealous? I am! I wish they would have packed me in their suitcase.
I spent the weekend with hanging out with family. Saturday I attended a friend's wedding which you can read about in the next post. My sister came with me as my date, it was so much fun just her and I spending time together. We have to do it again, no kids, or husbands, just us!
I chilled out with my nieces & nephew on Friday night. They are so fun, and say the cutest things! I love them so much, and they love Bentley too. My parents and family all met Bentley for the first time, and they too fell in love. He's a great addition!
On Sunday I woke up at 6AM! And was on my way back to Minneapolis by 7AM, am I crazy? I think so sometimes. I got home at 11am, changed and headed to St. Paul all before 12:30pm. We had a Miss Twin Cities Orientation meeting for this years pageant. So fun, so far we have 15 girls! I am getting seriously excited for this year.
This week I am gearing up for the first of a few bridal showers for Miss Jessie Sloane. I am in charge of the games for the shower. I am getting so excited, they are going to be fun. More to come on this later....
And just in case you are wondering I am on book #3 of the challenge Hubby and I are doing! I am winning!
It was so fun to see her so happy and so in love. They had the most adorable wedding. The ceremony alone was beautiful, and they pulled out all the stops at the reception. Every cute detail you can imagine having at your wedding they did. Everything from a kids dinner table with hot dogs, apple sauce and juice packs, complete with individual cakes at each table with different flavors to get guest mingling.
