So all week long, I walked past the boxes for charity stacked by the front door, the various half full storage containers in the living room that need to be consolidated and put....somewhere, and the dining table with vintage glassware etc.
And, we have some excitement brewing in our family. A niece is coming to Las Vegas to get married, late in February. Not really 'running off' to get married, just taking advantage of the 'we have something for everyone' marriage industry in this town - and mild Februarys.
So, little by little, other members of the family (especially those from the frozen parts) are thinking that they will try to come for the occasion.
The Mister and I are very excited that everyone will be in town, and that many will be staying with us. We have decided to throw a little reception/party at our house for the newlyweds after the ceremony.
Three weekends (and a half, if you count tomorrow) to get everything in order, and guest accommodations prepared (we are even getting the camper out of storage for a kind of 'mobile guest suite')
And, 36 hours after the party, I am going to Pennsylvania to go to the Philadelphia Flower Show with Dearest Sister, her eldest and Ms A, with a side trip to NYC to see A's new place.
A lot of excitement for a February that didn't have any plans just a couple of weeks ago!
