It’s the first of March, and I’ve been packing my computer with me all day. I’ve been so excited about today. Excited and a little nervous is probably more accurate. My bag is a purse/tote. There hasn't been a minute to spare for writing a slice yet.
My sister is getting married. Prepare to hear lots about it in the weeks to come. Yesterday, we went to multiple dress shops, keeping lots of appointments. My sister’s friend, Jordan, came along via an app called Marco Polo. She gave the most constructive feedback to the bride. My sister was lovely and open, without an inkling of bridezilla.
Today, we’ve been around the OSU campus, visited the church, and traveled to Oklahoma City to find bridesmaid dresses, mom dresses, and look at flowers. Yesterday, we were all in separate vehicles. Today, we've all smashed into my mom's Ford Explorer. We're quite the crew of ladies; me, my two sisters, my mom, the groom's mom, and my mom's friend. It's a carload, with only a small bit of room in the back for cargo.
This laptop doesn’t weigh much, but I’m glad to be in the car, typing away. We're all losing some steam. Instead of a sit down dinner, we've opted to order pizza for carry out from Upper Crust in Edmond.
The girl comes out to ask if we have an order in for Heidi. "Yes, that's us." She looks into the car a bit longer than necessary...and I laugh out loud. We packed in here, and after making quite a few purchases and some big gains toward getting my sister down the aisle, no one can see out the back of the car. Adding to the chaos that is our car, artificial flowers poke up from the cargo area.
We have three pizzas for six ladies, after almost ten hours of wedding planning, trying on dresses, and coordinating colors. We're fifty minutes from home, and we dig into the pizzas. I've scrounged around in my purse to find a tissue to use as a napkin. I hope no pizza sauce hits the keys.
I can't wait to get back to the house to read others who are posting. I can't wait to see what's happening in their lives and comment, comment, comment. I can't wait to get started with this challenge, just to be surprised by its sudden end. It's the first of March!
