excuse me, it's just not possible

It's not possible that it will be June in 2 days!  What happened to May?  I've been pretty busy since I last updated this blog 20 days ago.  Here's a look back:

The CG Strategic Planning session went well.  I cooked, they met, we ate, then slept! The first meal of the "event" was dinner Wednesday evening. The planning session ended at lunch on Friday but we had a guest Friday evening and then a different guest Saturday through Tuesday morning.  If you're interested in what was on the menu those days, click here.  If you see anything you'd like the recipe for, let me know. And if you ever hear me express interest in operating a quaint inn, call a doctor as I will have lost my mind!

When I returned home I started planning my sister, Amy's, birthday for the following Saturday.  She wanted to keep it extremely low key and I really appreciated this!  A friend of ours took her to a movie and I tagged along.  Afterward, I prepared her birthday dinner which was Mexican.  Zesty burritos, black beans, refried beans, yellow rice, chips and salsa.  Only thing missing was margaritas! Part of my birthday gift to her was to send her to a creative event called "Inspired."  In this picture Amy (in the apron) stands with 3 very talented instructors at the event.  To read more, check out Amy's blog, My Corner Studio.

The week that followed consisted of going to see "Wicked" with my sister-in-law, a routine dentist visit, a hair appointment, a couple of trips to the vet with a sick dog and general errands in preparation for the next big event... "The Wedding"

We left Friday for Bowling Green, KY to attend the wedding of my one and only niece, Sara. Friday evening was the rehearsal dinner.  During dessert David showed the video that he spent hours creating.  It was a big hit.  There were tears, but there was also a lot of laughter.  He did an awesome job putting it together. The wedding on Saturday was beautiful. Congratulations Paul & Sara!

My nephew, Adam (Sara's brother), is celebrating his 16th birthday tomorrow! Once all the partying is done, Adam will return home with us for a few days before we head to the beach!

I will confess, I am looking forward to parking myself in a beach chair for hours on end with a good book!

I'm going to try and be more diligent about keeping this blog current!  Thanks for reading!

Thanks for bringing me up to date! You are one busy gal! You need to sit in a beach chair and enjoy adult beverages to recoup from all the running around you've done in the last few weeks. See you soon.
