I don't know if it's age or lack of practice, but we've been going full speed all of March and it surely has kicked our behinds.
It started with Pablo's 30th' birthday dinner celebration:
Then followed our awesome friends Kerrie & Eric's wedding weekend. Correct. It was not an evening, or an afternoon. It was a whole weekend, from Friday afternoon all the way through Sunday. Weekend involved wedding, dinner, followed by drinks, followed the next morning by brunch and then pork butt barbecue and Norm's famous and out of this world bacon-leek dip and Pam's potato casserole as well as a game of football (which they all played barefoot as I observed) followed the next morning by taking Eric's 87 and 92 year old grandparents to Mass and back for brunch before heading home.
Right after that it was time to get ready for my Sistah's wedding shower the following weekend. I threw it along with another girl from school. One of the things I was in charge of was the favors. So I went from this mess:
To this pretty travel candle all by myself!
In the midst of all that, Norm and I were able to get out to enjoy the Cherry Blossom Festival (the number one attraction in Macon, GA).
Then it was time to get in the car and head over to Aiken to see my Sistah and throw her a Travel Shower before she becomes Mrs. Alrubaiy in May! (Alrubaiy and May rhyme!!)
Of course wherever the Trezzas are, so is good food, beer, wine, cookies and great company. So naturally, the shower also became a weekend celebration - the shower was followed by dinner and family time at the Trezza's house where we (my mom came along) were able to catch up with Nicky's relatives (my mom got to meet them) and chat about the upcoming wedding in Denver. This is a sampler platter of Mrs. Trezza's cookies...
Stick work and keeping up with the dogs - and the yard - and getting home at 6:00pm every evening (sometimes later), Norm working late and you have the recipe for getting our behinds kicked by the month of March BUT I wouldn't trade it for a thing! All the festivities were absolutely beautiful and we had an awesome time sharing with our friends and family.
Tonight March comes to an end and my house is clean (just about) and the bills are paid (just about on that one too) and tomorrow Norm is off and we will get to spend the day poolside with Mr. & Mrs. Fulkerson followed by planting flowers on our front porch.
So long March... welcome April...
