Jackon, TN Here We Come!
I am so exciting about this upcoming weekend. Clark's little brother, Clay is getting married in Jackson, TN- Roadtrip! Clark and I are driving to Jackson on Friday morning for a weekend full of festivities. We have the rehearsal dinner Friday, I am going to the bridesmaid's brunch Saturday morning, and of course the wedding/reception Saturday night. Clark's family is so much fun and I don't know Shannon's family too well, but her parents are super sweet. My mom and dad are going as well as a bunch of FUN people (Mark and Sherri Alt, Bo and Ashley Mattingly, and a bunch of other people who know how to party)! I'll post next week on how the wedding went down.
Last weekend was fun! Date night was a success- dinner at 1620, the Looney Bin, and then drinks at Ferneau. Saturday I made a trip to Sam's and spent way too much money. You know it's bad when a stranger looks at you walking down the isle and says "I think you need another cart." My cart was about to overflow- I knew it was time to checkout at that point. I love Sams though! It was about lunch time and the samples were in full force. I was sold on the teriyaki chicken you can heat up in the microwave and beef jerky. I came home with a month's supply of both. I also stocked up on TP, paper towels, dish soap, deodorant, razors, toothpaste, and toothbrushes. You'd think I had an army living at my home.
We had house guests, Melissa and Randy, on Saturday night. We went do dinner with the family (9 of us) and went to the Rep to see the Foreigner. The play was okay- way too long in my opinion (and Clark's- he was sleeping every time I looked at him). Melissa and Randy departed early Sunday to see her friend in the hospital who had her baby Saturday night. It worked out really well for them to happen to be intown.
I enjoy spending time with Melissa (my sister) and am glad we've gotten closer over the years. We haven't always had the best relationship. We are so very different and are personalities have clashed in the past. I think we are really very similar, but it has taken me a while to realize that. Sometimes when I say something it reminds me of Melissa- kinda weird. She really is one of my best friends these days and I love her very much. She is a great mother and an awesome friend to have.
It's a short week for me since I'm taking off Friday to head to Jackson- Woop Woop! Weekend countdown: 3 1/2 days.
