We've been anticipating and talking about this for a long time. August 29th always seemed so far away, but now it is here ... Megan and Andrew's wedding! The next couple of days are a flurry of activity, making sure I've got everything in place.
... Pick up Catie's maid of honor dress at the bridal store.
... Make sure Ginny has her ride to the airport arranged from college.
... Pray that Billy gets the okay from the Academy to take leave early on Friday.
... Find brown belts for the boys suits ... forgot that black won't work with khaki.... Put the finishing touches on Catie's maid of honor toast.
... Need jewelry for my dress. My fashion consultant (Jesse) tells me that the jewelry I picked out will not do.
... Also need to rethink my shoes.
... Practice dancing with my non-dancing husband. Ginny promised to give him lessons Friday night, when she arrives home.... Make sure I have three pairs of matching dress socks for the boys.
... Get Catie a manicure appointment. Her nails need help ... a week of mixing food coloring into frosting at the bakery, has done a number on them. After all, the maid of honor needs to be glowing for the bride.
... Go over wedding etiquette with the younger children.... Charge the camera battery.
... Get Lucy's first haircut.... Confirm Catie's ride to Winchester for Friday.
... Get Lucy's dress shoes ... her feet grew a lot over the summer.
... Make sure Chuck's suit is in order.... Plan a birthday party for Lucy who turns three tomorrow!
... Remind Billy to double check that he has all of his uniform with him before he leaves the Academy.
... Buy a new movie camera ... our's broke.
... Do the girls have stockings and slips for their dresses? I forgot that detail! Hope they remembered.
... Double check our hotel reservations.Time to go tackle the list!
