Hi Jan H.
Goodness gracious... where is the time flyin' too?
In less than a week ... my daughter is getting married out in our backyard. Am I ready for this??????
I'm ready to see her being married; but what I'm not prepared for are the 200 guest we're expecting. Why did I give my consent to them using our place for the the wedding and reception in the first place??? I must be nuts! It sure would have been less stressful to have the wedding at church and rent a reception hall and leave all the prep work to others.
I have been trying to keep a grip on myself. You know how they talk about Bridezilla??? Well have you met MOMzilla yet? Well here she is!
This is going to be one doozie of week ... and I'm going to have to keep it in check so heads don't roll.
I keep reminding myself ...
34 years ago (August 6) Slim and I did the same thing. We got married at church but had the reception in the back yard of my parents. Then for our 25th wedding anniversary, nine years ago, we did the same thing... another big party in the back yard for family and friends at our house. So ... we do have a little experience in the back yard party planning ... and after each time I told myself ... I'm never doing that again. BUT ... here we are again ... having another big back yard wedding!!
It's a lot of work. When I post pictures of the wedding next week I'll be the nearly bald headed gray haired lady who is collapsed against the tent pole being propped up by a bottle of MGD.
THANK goodness I have sisters who said they'd help!!! You did say that ... didn't you???? Dar, Colleen, Cher, Linda???????!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!
Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
