This weekend is another busy one, and I'm not too happy about that. While I will enjoy most of the things on the agenda... I really just want to wake up, exercise and spend the rest of the days lounging about watching TV and playing with Amelia. I am pretty sure it will be retirement before I get a weekend like that. I always feel like I'm catching up on things or spending time with people since I don't have a lot of extra hours during the week. Tomorrow we are going to a Jack&Jill wedding shower and I am SO EXCITED to celebrate the wonderful couple. Tara has been a great friend for years and years, and while we don't always get to see one another I always enjoy the times we get to catch up. Her wonderful fiance is such a nice guy and they make one amazing couple. The love just radiates from them. Mark's brother Gerwai and his family are in town from Florida for a couple of weeks. I am really looking forward to spending time with them. I wish it was any other time during the year so I could take some vacation time. Typically, unless you are getting married or are in a wedding (and I used this last year) we aren't generally allowed to take days off in the summer. In the past I might have been able to take a day here or there but with all of the changes and short staffing going on I just can't be away from the office. I believe I have Mark talked into a trip over their way next summer!. One of my Grandmas lives over there as well so we could make an extended trip and spend a good amount of time with everyone.
My baby sister Grace turned 20 this week. She is growing up to be quite a wonderful young lady. For some reason I had a hard time shopping for her, which is a total first. She ended up with clothes from Romy and MAC make up.
Little Gracie on her 20th birthday! Mom made her a strawberry rhubarb pie and Mark made her a peanut butter mousse pie (all by himself). Both desserts were amazing and I ate way too much :)
While we were shopping for Grace, Mark and Amelia had a little fun...
They are so funny!
Mark's birthday is next week on the 20th and I'm completely bummed... I'm pretty sure his present isn't going to arrive in time and I ordered it weeks ago. SAD! Amelia and I have projects to work on tomorrow morning for Father's Day. I always love making things with her, she gets so excited to do craft projects.
I think it's time for bed. It is incredibly late and I want to wake up bright and early to start my morning off with a lengthy walk! Hope you all have a great evening.
