What a whirlwind!
Brendan and I attended a full tasting at our venue in Austin last night. We ate way too much, slept for a few hours, and then woke up at 6am to pack our bags. We hit the road back to Midland at 7am and drove into the afternoon.
When we arrived home, we had about 7 packages waiting for us!
We had a blast tearing into the belated shower and early wedding gifts! We have some amazing friends and family, and we're floored at all the well wishes and thoughtful presents we've been receiving. It is outstanding to feel so loved and supported!
As soon as we finished opening gifts, I drove off to help host Jill's baby shower.
Let me just say, her daughter already has a better wardrobe than me, and she's still in the womb! What a loved baby!
I drove home after the shower, took a few minutes to input some wedding RSVPs into the computer, and then we headed off for a marriage celebration party in honor of some friends. We had a delicious dinner there and got to visit with friends....we got home about 15 minutes ago, and I all but collapsed on the sofa to write this blog post. I know who is sleeping like a baby tonight!
There is no doubt about it: we're exhausted! But we're also so happy...happy to have much more of the wedding planning accomplished, happy to have so many great friends and family near and far, and happy to be home!
It seems Lola and Zoe are happy to have us back too. They were pretty good while we were gone...except for knocking all the clothes off the top shelf in the closet...sigh, I'll clean that up tomorrow.
Wishing everyone a happy remainder of the weekend. It's a busy one for us...but for tonight, we're all about relaxing. I also wanted to say thanks to all the blog readers! Last month was our busiest month on the blog EVER with 2, 075 pageviews! Thank you for being with us on this crazy journey!
