Friday Randy and I hosted a rehearsal dinner for Randy's nephew Jon and his fiancee' Bree.
My quote for the day is, "you are only as good as your help!". Jeff and Kathi, and Dan and Marla gave of themselves greatly in helping us!
Marla cooked all day with me,
Kathi (and my neighbor Stacy) pooled their resources (with a little help from my cupboards) and set beautiful tables........
My niece Marla made beautiful flower arrangements for the tables.......
Randy hung up lights outside, set up tables and chairs, cleaned up outside, put the furniture back together on the back patio (we had to disassemble it all during the great winds!!)
It was a very successful dinner, and all went smoothly.
I am so grateful for our fabulous friends (which I don't even really recall formally asking for help - I hope I didn't assume :-0........................... when I said that we would do the dinner they didn't know it meant WE!!!). I swear we work so well together -we could do this professionally!
And is this the sexiest thing you've ever seen? A gorgeous hunk o' man dressed up AND doing dishes!!! (I didn't even ask him to - am I blessed or what?!?!).
Today - I am tired - kind of in a fog..............I have to leave for the wedding in 2 1/2 hours and I haven't thought about hopping in the shower yet - too much work! I woke up at 9:15 (did I mention I stayed up until 12:30 cleaning and wiping down floors? - I just can't wake up to a mess!) and then laid in bed and watched a movie until 11am - YIKES - but it sure felt awesome!!
