I have a lot of vacation time I have to use up by the end of June, so I took Friday off and went to visit my niece. I picked her up from daycare before lunch and we spent the rest of the day together. I know I’m biased but she is the cutest thing ever. She talks a little bit, but what I really wish she could tell me is how she gets so much volume in her hair.
We did a LOT of reading, and I love this picture because the book is as big as she is and she’s holding it up with her feet.
One of my good friends got married on Saturday and the ceremony wasn’t until 5:30. When we got the invitation I said, “Awesome, a 5:30 wedding means we can still be super productive and get a lot done that day before we have to leave.”
Do you know what I did before the wedding?
Laid around, read my book, laid around, painted my nails, laid around.
So it wasn’t exactly productive, but it was relaxing.
The wedding was a blast. We had a fun table and the food was amazing. The bride is one of the most genuine, kind people I’ve ever known, and the groom is hilarious, and everyone was just so happy for them.
All of my wedding dreams came true (aside from marrying Matt, obviously) when halfway through the night, the DJ said, “I didn’t know this until I walked around and his buddies told me, but the groom is a closet Meatloaf fan!” and then proceeded to play a Meatloaf medley.
AM I AT A WEDDING RECEPTION OR IN HEAVEN?
The icing on the cake was when we were driving home and the radio DJ said “stay tuned, we will be giving away Zac Brown Band tickets in the upcoming future.”
The upcoming future.
As opposed to what? The past future?
It sounds something the Department of Redundancy Department would say, and it cracked me up. If I ever start a band, I'm going to name it The Upcoming Future.
I felt like Cinderella because before the clock struck midnight I’d traded my fancy dress and makeup and pearls for sweatpants and my nighttime mouth guard and I woke up on Sunday morning with a slightly swollen and infected eye.
My eye has improved slightly, but I'm hoping it's completely healed sometime in the upcoming future.
