I got the afternoon off to go to my cousin Nicole’s bridal shower this afternoon in Crookston, MN. Grandpa was babysitting the kids (Eric is in DL for his dude weekend football draft thing, you’ll recall) and he was somewhat confident in his abilities to “handle it.” I left out all the appropriate things they may need in my absence, wrote out a schedule and left strict instructions that at no point should the bathroom door be left open. Avery has been known to “test the waters” in there if you know what I mean. And often, those waters are tainted – also, if you know what I mean. Men and boys. So we wished him luck and we were off! Freeeeeeeeedom! The shower was held at my cousin Ben’s house by his wife Lacy. She had quite the spread of food and some delicious slushes! Oh how I love slushes! Here is my Aunt Nancy and my mom enjoying said slushes.
Here is the rigged game of BRIDE bingo. I should have won with that very first column there. I believe the winner of the game was shoving gifts at Nicole in the order that she needed so that she would BRIDE first. No fair! Those dish towels should have been MINE!
Well, about time for me to sleep! Tomorrow is my glorious rest day which means I get to sleep in. Though, truth be told – I slept in the past 2 days! Doesn’t mean I didn’t work on my fitness, but means I had babysitters! Monday morning might be rough! Later!
