Heading Out

by Meghann on June 20, 2012

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. :)

Lunch

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!
