So I had this bright idea to volunteer our house for my sister's rehearsal dinner last night. I'm totally under-exaggerating when I say that I'm a complete perfectionist when it comes to things like this. So I spent days cleaning my house to perfection, buying decor and treats to match her wedding colors, and making sure everything was just right. Everything was going according to plan--everyone knew what they were supposed to be bringing, I had the food prepared, the house was spotless, everything. Thennnn my mom arrived. The woman who was supposed to bring the most important essentials; the plates, the cups, the eating utensils... aaaaand she forgot them. But she didn't forget the mini brownies! It's not even my wedding, yet I totally had a Bridezilla moment. "Are you freaking kidding me?!" were my exact words, if I'm not mistaken. So I hurried and rushed to my kitchen to see what I could scrounge up. We ended up with Styrofoam plates and red solo cups. As I was having a mini panic attack in my head about the cups not matching any of the wedding decor, I looked around. I saw smiling faces, laughter, love, and my calm-as-a-cucumber husband--and then I was brought back down to earth. After that little bump in the road, the rest of the night was perfection. I sat there with my glass of wine, taking in all the laughter and conversation, and enjoying the scenery of our backyard. It was a state of pure bliss, a kind of bliss that can only be achieved when surrounded with loved ones. I'm so incredibly happy for my sister and her fiance--they have so much love for one another, and we had so much fun celebrating you two last night. Can we get this wedding weekend started already?!
