Favors and Tiaras and Make Up, Oh My!!

It's been a crazy couple of days, but one by one I'm getting things crossed off my list!!

On Sunday I went over to Cindy Tyler's house - I went to school with her kids and she still does costumes, props, hair & make-up for my dad's shows - to do a trial run with my hair.  She had a friend of hers come over and we played around with some different things and then found a style that we all loved.  It was so much fun!!  While we were doing that we also played with makeup and I settled on what I wanted for that too.  It was fun to get all dolled up for the afternoon!!  Seriously.  I think that grownups should get to play dress up every now and then, too.  I stopped by the high school on my way back to my parents house to raid my father's costume closet.  I got mirrors, music stands (to prop mirrors up on), a steamer and more.  We're getting ready at my parent's house and I think I have everything we could need.

When I got home Bethany and I got ready to assemble 250 wedding favors!!  It seemed more daunting than it ended up being and we got through almost all of them while we watched the Tony awards (did anyone else see that opening number? WOW!!).

This morning after everyone had left for work, I poured myself some coffee, turned on soapnet and did some scrapbooking while the dogs slept.  It was actually quite peaceful!!  My mom came home around 2 and we went S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G.  We actually didn't need that much.  I needed some ribbon, a pillow for the ring bearer and makeup.  My mom wanted to look at dresses since she decided she didn't like the dress she had picked out a couple of months ago.  Well ... we got that and then some.  But it was a fun day!!  At 5 we picked up our friend Courtney from work and went and had dinner and then to the mall and David's Bridal to get the things we needed.  It was fun to get out of the house and get some things checked off the list while having fun.  So far I've been blessed and fortunate to have a balanced combination of time alone and time with friends and family.

I got home tonight and finished assembling the favors - they're ready to be taken to the Community House.  Wedding favors - done.  Jewelry & Make up - done.  Ring bearer and flower girl pillow & basket - done.  Mother of the Bride dress - done.  Scrapbooks - almost done.

Bruce gets here on Wednesday!!  I'm SO very ready for my groom to with me.

Love to all,
