Yesterday Lindsay & I went with Sara, our soon-to-be daughter-in-law, to a fitting for her wedding gown. She is SOOOO beautiful. I know we had gone this past Tuesday to “pick up” Sara's gown, but the alterations that were supposed to have been done, weren't. Thankfully, Sara is a very laid back bride and took that in stride. We went back and Sara had another fitting and, hopefully, this will do the trick. The dress just needs hemming, so how hard can this be????
After the fitting, the three of us went for pedicures. That was fun! Sara had never had a pedicure before and now she knows what she's been missing!! Kevin – I think you better put that in your budget once you get married! :)
We ended the evening with dinner together with Randy, Jason & Reagan as well as a short talk with Kevin via Skype. Actually, Sara had to call him to wake him up for formation. Some things never change – the boy still likes his sleep.
The weekend looks like it will be a quiet one. We're joining in a Basket Bingo evening tonight with the rest of the campground. Never done this before, so it should be interesting. We just want to get know some of our neighbors and figured this would be a great way to do that.
Tomorrow, of course, is Mother's Day. It is also my birthday! Yep, 50 years ago, I hit this world and it hasn't been the same since! ;) I can't believe I'm 50!! I gotta say, it feels great. Yeah, I hurt in places I didn't know I had and I sure don't look like I did when I was 20, but all in all, I'm a happy old girl. Wouldn't trade places with anyone. I've got a great husband, 3 kids who are doing well and are with spouses who love them (and us!), two healthy, happy grandkids, my parents are still kicking and extended family and friends who love me. What a great life!!
I wish all you moms out there a wonderful day tomorrow. I hope you find a moment to reflect on the joys and blessings in your lives and figure out a way to celebrate them.
Until the next time . . .
