Car selfie!!! Had to send a picture to Polly to show her that I did actually get up and fix my hair. That is nothing short of a small miracle!
The problem is that I still have no idea how to work a straight iron other than to totally straighten hair. I can't do all that fancy swooshing on the bottom, so I'm using hot rollers. So, I'll just look pageant-esque for the next few months. "I just want world peace!".
My little Gabster and I hit up Waffle House Sunday morning, bright and early. Dude... that place was hopping. I might have to go back this week, just to see all my old friends!! Who knew?!
And later in the day... this happened!!
Mary Allison's sister, Elaina, is getting married very soon. My girls are flower girls. MA is, of course, in the wedding as well. It will all be taking place in New Orleans, so ROOOOAD TRIIIIP!! I think I'm feeling a little "exploring" coming on!! Our hotel is situated such that a streetcar will be our mode of transportation. And she is getting married inside the famous Audobon Zoo. Very authentic New Orleans wedding. Should be a ball!
And just so many people love those girls!! That's MA's new stepmom, Staci, in the black and white stripe. She is also the one who takes lots of my girls' professional photos. Lurking behind me is Faith, a friend from way back and Paula is trying to smell my essence. Then, to the far right is Judy, Elaina's "second mama" and Pammy's best friend for years and years and years, and her daughter Julieanne. CoCo, if you remember her from babysitting at the beach, is Julieann's older sister. Dontcha love how I feel the need to introduce you to my world?!
Of course, Elaina HOOKED UP!!
She got lots and lots of goodies, as this shower ranged from her high school buds to college buds to mamas of her friends, to friends of her mamas, to grandmothers, and of course all her family. It was a pretty big one!
We three cheesers had to stop for a party pic!!
And here is the bride to be! Isn't she gorgeous?! I can't wait to see her on her big day. When I tell you she and her husband to be, Ryan, look like models in all their New Orlean based engagement photos, I do not lie!! They are just gorgeous. And clearly very happy together!
I wish them a very happy marriage! That has to be one of life's greatest gifts!! A happy marriage!
Is this a sign that spring is coming?! My girls are out of school again today due to temperatures. In the 20's. Don't laugh, South Dakota!!
