That title is about as clever as I'm feeling today. We just got in from a 5-hour drive and a whirlwind weekend away for a niece's bridal shower. So, I'm feeling a little pooped and ready to put my feet up and watch some dvr-ed brain candy on the telly. :)
The weekend was lovely, though quick. It's always nice to see family, especially when we don't get to see each other often enough. We had a lot of laughs, and caught up on each others' lives. For the shower, I got to pull out some of my J.Crew lovelies, like the Madelene dress and my leopard Valentinas (now down to $99 and worth that price). They were both a hit at the shower, though I felt a bit sheepish when they asked where an item was from, and I kept saying "J.Crew." "J.Crew." "Er, yes, J.Crew again." Oh well, now they'll really remember where to pick up those pretty shoes! They were very comfortable, running to and fro all day, as y'all know is the dealio when you're a hostess. The Madelene was brilliant, with its pockets for stowing cameras and lip gloss, and the cheery green color. Even the pearls willed to me by my late mother-in-law shined, earning me compliments and extra points in a silly game we played.
Here's a quick pic:
We stayed in my mother-in-law's house, as we're just doing the final dust-up before it goes on the market. It was very strange to be in the house with all the tchotchkes gone and wallpaper down, but it's what must be done, and everyone was at peace. I was able to take home a few mementos that make me think of her and the house.
Spring break is over, and it's back to reality here. At least the flowers and trees are in bloom, and it's looking so pretty and spring-y here. I'll be a bit of a mad person the next few weeks, organizing a fundraising event, and then suddenly, it will be nearly May. This year is flying by for me already -- is it for you?
