. . . The Next Day

Katie's wedding was weird timing.  It was bad because the Friday was the last day of the six weeks grading period, and my kids had projects due that Wednesday, which means I was still getting projects that week.  Oh well, I was grading in the car, but it's what I do for my friends.  Katie's wedding was also PERFECT timing because it was the first weekend for Rachel's spring break.  Rachel is my friend from college, who moved to Virginia to find a teaching job, she currently lives with her aunt and uncle who live out there.  So she was in Dallas, and so was I (we missed each other over Christmas break).  So I was SO excited to see her, I hadn't since Lauren's wedding last summer.  We we met up, with the rest of the crew, for breakfast on Sunday.

And of course lunch with the fam!

Katie's Wedding

About two weeks ago my best friend from high school got married.  I was lucky enough to be apart of her wedding as a bridesmaid.  I took off work on that Friday and drove up to Dallas on Thursday night.  On Friday morning me and mom went and got pedicures.  And then I bought my shoes (shh don't tell Katie I waited until the last minutes).  Well actually I just needed to go to Rackroom Shoes, and I we don't have one near us in Houston, and I knew they had some that I liked online in Rowlett.   Friday we had a bridesmaid luncheon.

After the luncheon we only had about an hour of down time until we headed downtown for rehersal.  She got married at the Old Red Courthouse in Dallas.  Afterwards we went to the YO Steakhouse.  It was definitely a fancy place. 

On Saturday, Russell flew up and dad picked him up.  The wedding was at 5:30.  It again was really fancy and really fun.

Emma and Lyla's Birthday party

My cousin Ben's daughters had a birthday party today. It was very exciting- they had a petting zoo and pony rides for the kids. It was great to see all the cousins kids again. Here are a few pictures:
