have you missed me

.....well, have you?
yeah, probably not,
but i've missed you!
a lot!
since last wednesday morning
i have been taking a break from blogger
not because i wanted to,
but because blogging on my phone isn't as easy as facebooking on my phone! :)
so, you might wonder, why on earth was i taking an uninvited break from blogger....
simple....
(well ok, not really)
so here is a run down of how i've been spending my time without you!!

wednesday (12.17)
i worked .... and as soon as i sent my little friends on their way
flake was at school to pick me up
so we could head down east
we arrived in beaufort, making great time,
even after we stopped in raleigh for some amazing bumper to bumper traffic fun!
when we arrived, i was totally shocked to see the temperature at 8:30pm to be 68
seriously?!?! it is the middle of december....not september!

thursday (12.18)
flake and i woke up.....
thinking we were on a little vacation,
and then it hit us...
we realized that this wedding we were in town for....
was no where ready to be had
flake and i, spent the entire day,
helping robbie make list, cross things off, rewrite list, buy things, drop things off,
and then do it all again!
that evening, we decided we were going to have a tacky christmas sweater party....
and then quickly thought better of it, being that it was just me, flake, robbie, and b-rad (her hubby to be)...along with the dogs and cat
so instead we drank and played scrabble....
and just so you know, i am not a good speller....
but when i've had a few drinks in me, i can't even comprehend what the letters sound like....
so putting them together to form a word....not a pretty picture....however a funny one!
so when b-rad started the game off with JIHAD....i pretty much needed to throw in the towel!
needless to say, i didn't win!

friday (12.19)
robbie and i spent the day checking more things off her list....
and i was able to convince her to let us get our nails done....
(which was totally on my list!)
flake spent the entire day cleaning robbie's car (seriously!)
then it was off to the rehearsal (where i got to hug allison! :))
and then dinner (and pictures!!)
i had some wine....i typically don't drink wine, i have never really liked it....
but my thoughts have changed! :)
after the dinner, robbie, flake, kendall, and i went over to robbie's store to print her wedding programs
(well, they printed, while i took a rest on one of the beds at the store!)
and then we headed to wally world....
after getting some essential things for the wedding....
we finally arrived back at robbie's house too close to 2am for me to be happy

saturday (12.20)
the big day....a beautiful spring day, sunshine, 70 degrees...only problem....its supposed to be december! robbie wanted a december....christmas....cold weather wedding....
(and i kept thinking....if you wanna make god laugh...make a plan!)
i woke robbie up, earlier than she probably wanted me too....
but the list....was not complete by any means! (?!?!?)
there was still packing for the honeymoon, gathering things for the reception, finding people to clean up, figuring out how ____ would get ____ to _____.
way too much stuff to keep up in the air at once for my little brain!
we finally left to go get our hair done, and then made it to the church....
a lot of the afternoon was a blur....
i do remember...i was dressed like a present...
we were standing in line to walk into the church....
the music began
the solo began
and then it happened!!
the flower girl vomited EVERYWHERE!!!
seriously!
all over herself, me, everywhere!
and then she did it again, in fact 2 more times!
somehow, by the grace of god
we got her cleaned up, the vomit somewhat off my dress,
out from between my toes....
and were ready to walk into the church....ON TIME!
the wedding went off with out a hitch....
smiled pretty for the pictures....
everyone was ready to go....
until kendall realized her keys....were in her purse....with flake....already at the reception....
so after we got another set from her parents...
we were on our way
we arrived at the reception
flake did his dj thing
robbie left happy
saying it was exactly what she wanted
....
so i must say....it was a success
however...
i realize now... more than ever....
there is a good reason i did not plan my own wedding!! :) god bless flake for doing it all!!

sunday (12.21)
flake and i stayed in beaufort for some "away time"
and volunteered to take care of beau, tater, and casper
robbie and b-rad's dogs and cat
even though we were given specific care instructions for the animals....
we didn't exactly follow them
we were told to feed casper once a day (check)
we were told to feed tater twice a day--a scoop each time, and water in the bowl (check)
we were told .... for beau.... he likes hardee's combo #2 .... with straight fries, and a water.... he likes to drink his water out of the bathtub faucet...and he expects to sleep in the bed....
.....
needless to say..... beau...got the same treatment as tater....

flake and i spent all of sunday on the couch, watching tv and sleeping
we were both worn slam out!

monday (12.22)
it came quickly....mainly cause we were so tired
monday, we decided to walk downtown....we quickly realized winter had come back to town
as soon as we walked outside....we felt that a ride down town would be a better idea!
after our "walk"
we decided to go see a movie, have dinner, and then rent a movie....
oh and we took care of the animals....
it was a good day for us, being together, not having to worry about any agendas...or list...or anything!

tuesday (12.23)
the flake and i got all our stuff in the car and ready to leave ....
heading to my parents house....
we stopped in raleigh,
where my mama had reserved us tickets to see polar express at the imax theater.
it was awesome!
flake had never seen the polar express before, and i had been really wanting to see it in 3d....so i was totally excited! :)
so much so that we had to have our picture taken in the glasses!! :)
i was NOT disappointed!
it was amazing!
and after we left....
flake actually said....
in one way or another....
he liked it too! :)
we arrived at my parents house, had some great time together, before dinner, had a great dinner, made by good old susan....
and then more conversation...(i'm still shocked....my father never turned the tv on!!)
and then off to bed :)

wednesday (12.24)
here we are....all caught up! :)
i woke up early....
early enough to see it snow!
which made my day!
i had to go tell flake....to which he replied....
it isn't nice to lie on christmas eve!
then took a little nap, until everyone else woke up....
and now i sit....feeling very accomplished that i have recapped my boring week!
and i'm beyond excited to see my brother, nina, and family....
spend time with all my family....
go to church....
and then head to bed....to wake up tomorrow, on christmas....
and get to spend time with my new family back at home! :)
merry christmas
from me to you!
:)

Whoa.... you've been busy girl. A Christmas wedding, how fun (except for maybe that whole Flower Girl vomiting incident!)

Anyways, welcome back to the land of blogville!

Wow! You have been very busy!

Thoughts about the blog -
- I like Kyle's beard...very thick!
- The candy cane cake was very unique!
- You make one cute present and Green looks great on you!
- You know a child threw up on you because you're a teacher, right? We're magnets!
- I LOVE the pics with the 3D glasses! Glad you did it too!

++ MISS YOU!
