lovely saturday

This morning I was the guest of honor at a brunch shower thrown by some of Todd’s mom’s friends.  She has many friends who have been in her life for a long time and it was so sweet of them to throw the shower.  We had a great time getting to know each other over brunch and the brunch was delicious to boot.

Fruit salad, egg casserole, yogurt with fresh berries and granola, scones and baked french toast made for a perfect brunch.

After breakfast we shared some stories and then opened gifts.  Once again, I’m blown away by everyone’s generosity.  It’s really been amazing.

It was a really lovely way to kick off my Saturday.

After the shower, I drove to Portland, MI to meet up with my friend, Jess and have a snack with her and deliver her bridesmaid’s dress.  Jessica lives in Eaton Rapids which is about an hour and a half away so we don’t get to see each other as much as we’d like.  It’s always great to catch up and hear about her life and her sweet son, Owen.  He’s such a cutie!

After chatting for awhile we headed back to our respective homes.  She’s attending my Chicago bachelorette party in two weeks and I’m so glad that she (and all of the other girls) are making the trip for it.

This was a very busy week for me, I didn’t make it home before 9:00pm any night and right now, I am sitting.  And relaxing.  I was going to cook dinner but I think I’ll just eat hummus and crackers for dinner, because I can.  All in all, a lovely Saturday.

How are you spending your weekend?

This morning I decided that I wanted to wear a skirt or dress to work because the forecast was calling for spring.  Well, I made the not insignificant error of wearing a never-before-worn skirt to work today.  When I was getting ready this morning it looked great but as the morning has crept on my hemline seems to keep creeping up.  This happens every tme I wear a skirt to work!  I think I give up.  No more skirts without tights or leggings.  Thank goodness I have a cardigan to drape over my legs while I’m sitting at my desk!  Oh well, you live and learn.

Today is so nice again.  I just ran to the bank at the start of my lunch break and it was 63 and sunny.  I know that it’s old lady-like of me to talk about the weather but this weather is worth talking about.

I’m now enjoying a lovely combination of yogurt and fresh blackberries.  A perfect warm weather combo.


After work today I have my second meeting with Events by iCandy, a fabulous local rental company that we’re using for the wedding.  I’m going to pick out some apothecary jars for our candy bar and maybe some silk flowers for our flower girls.  I can’t wait to go back there, their showroom is amazing and packed with beautiful things!

If it’s still nice out after the meeting I’m going to try to go on a short run.  And then pack.  I mean it today.
