And so it begins.......

....T minus a few weeks and counting. The younger sister’s wedding festivities are approaching, fast and furious.

Next weekend I will need to be on my best behavior. I have been practicing my ooohs and ahhhhs all weekend long. Why? Next Saturday we will have the Bridal Shower. Who came up with all these archaic traditions? I mean really. I think that if the future couple has already set up house, why have a shower anyway? Whatever!

My older sister and I will be co-hostesses. The best way to get through this shower? Any guesses? We have rented a Marguerita machine. Think Slurpee dispenser but instead of Slurpees we will have Margueritas....Ole!! You think it might be over the top if I keep humming the Mexican Hat Dance while being the hostess with the mostess? You do? Then I must do it.

I draw the line at Bridal Shower games. Shoot me now people. I volunteer to do the dishes. For the love of all that is dignified, give me a king-sized break.

Any of you out there who have ideas on how to keep me calm, besides with the use of alcohol and good drugs, I am open to any and all suggestions.

Ooooohh..............ahhhhhhhhh. What lovely oven mitts!!! How’s that?

OY...VEY.....Maria!

Have the invitations gone out yet? I didn't get one...drat...I would have gone JUST to watch you squirm. And hey, free slurpies??? WOOT!!! At least now I don't have to buy oven mitts. Or matching towels. Or....spoons....or something. LOL

Hehe... Aren't they great? Oh well, you gotta do what you gotta do, right? Is it going to be a traditional shower or are you guys going to make it interesting (other than alcohol)? I'm definitely not one for those games, but I have to say that recently I went to one where they had one that wasn't too bad. You know the one where you tape a famous person's name to people's backs? They have to ask yes or no questions to figure out who they are, first one to do it wins. Monica Lewinsky gave us a few laughs.

Good luck!

Uhhh....that's OK. Really. I have other plans, anyway. You know, like cleaning the oven...changing my oil...cleaning out the gutters...mending socks...that sort of thing. LOL

Nahh...seriously, my mom, my brother and I are going to the Nascar race in Charlotte on Sat night and then on Sunday, HFS Jr. and I are going to the state fair to see Kimberly Locke from Ameican Idol. Quite a busy weekend...and no time to sneak off to a bridezilla shower. LOL

Rented a machine? That sounds like a great idea. Perhaps you should consider buying one instead of renting. Then I could come over and watch the game. Or not even watch anything. Just saying.

Have a good time! Let me know how the machine works out.
