I have great news!!
As many of you know, Ryan and I are flying home on April 7th to attend my sister Becky’s wedding. It turns out that between the wedding date and the date we get there only three business days exist… In those three days I would have to see my bridesmaids dress for the first time, let alone try it on, have a fitting, and have it altered… then there is having my hair cut and done to decide how to do it for the wedding…. yada yada yada… I’m sure if any of you have ever been involved in a wedding you can guess how hectic those three days will be… ON TOP OF JET LAG!
Added to that, I had been kind of down the last few weeks at the thought that my baby sister is getting married in a few short months and I would not be able to go shopping with her, or help her plan, or just sit up and giggle with her over wedding plans… you know all that sister stuff!
So Ryan came home yesterday for lunch and just out of the blue said that he’d been thinking and maybe I should take a short trip home alone this coming month… Just to spend a few weeks with my mom and sisters shopping and enjoying each other’s company before the last minute rush! Not to mention to meet the groom!
So I called my mom, schemed, and looked for tickets through the base and all said and done?
I go home to Phoenix on the 5th of February!!!! It’s already booked! I’ll be gone until the 21st so I’ll have 16 days!
So my best friend Emily will be here in 7 days and then she and I both fly back to Phoenix on the same day! (No not on the same flight… which stinks but it would have cost me an extra $1400.00 and I just don’t think so!!!) We’ll spend the last few days making soups and casseroles to freeze so that Ryan doesn’t starve…
How amazing is my husband?
The saddest part is that I’ll be gone over Valentine’s day… I think I just got the best Valentine’s Day gift ever! I’ll make sure to get him something good!!!
I’m off to clean and get ready for Emily!
