My bag is packed!
Granted, I haven’t tried actually zipping it yet, but I have hopes that it will shut. Any bets?
Both of my parents took the week off to help my sister with last minute wedding projects and I offered to drive over today to help with what I can from now until Saturday. The biggest project starts tomorrow, when we have a DIY flower party at my parents’ place. My sister purchased all of her flowers from a wholesale flower distributer and our goal for Thursday and/or Friday will be to construct bouquets and centerpieces with the help of my very talented aunt who ran her own flower shop a few years back.
I’ve never made a flower arrangement or bouquet in my life, but I can be taught and that’s what my sister is aiming for here. My goal is to follow directions and do as I’m told while doing so.
I’m actually curious to see how this whole DIY flower thing goes down as it’s something I’ve been thinking about for my own wedding. It’s a heck of a money saver (I think all of my sister’s flowers were under $300) and could be fun to do if the stress level isn’t too crazy. We’ll just have to wait and see.
I murdered the sweet potatoes. I cooked them too high on accident (whoops) and burned them from the inside out somehow (they were really dry). Lesson learned – always double check the oven temp before walking away!
With the sweet potatoes, I had a toasted english muffin with fresh arugula and slightly melted extra sharp cheddar cheese.
And a side of peach.
I took Maddie for an extra long walk after lunch to try and tucker her our before our 2 hour car ride back home.
I hope she’s ready for it!
See ya on the flip side!
