I should say busy Saturday actually, because we did almost nothing today except go to dinner after a day filled with watching Workaholics and eating cinnamon buns. Saturday started in Lookout Valley at the Christmas parade; Chattooine and some other local costuming groups joined in to make the parade a very special event for a friend who was helping with the whole shindig. It was a great community event, and I hope we're a part of it next year even after the realization that oh man! It's tough to walk 3 miles in ill fitting boots.
As we stood in line waiting for the parade to start, my friend Brian texted me to ask if we wanted to attend their wedding. I was excited, shocked, and surprised and although we had a full day already, I wasn't going to miss it for the world! We quickly changed after the parade and grabbed some lunch on the way, and got there just in time to watch Brian and his now wife Shanleigh take their vows. I also got hugs from Brian's mom and brother who I've also missed very much, and I feel very at peace suddenly as if the universe has gotten back on course. I'm looking forward to getting these friendships back on course, and it really meant the world to me that I was able to be there on his special day.
It was weird seeing Ben, Brian, and Richard all interact. Not weird.. just.. that was too many manic short dudes in one place. I think they all like eachother though, so that's good :)
Right after the wedding we met our friends Brena and Jamie (and baby Jericho and the birthday boy Lexas) at Rock City to watch Richard play with the Jericho Brass, and that was followed by a late dinner at Applebees. We were EXHAUSTED when we got home, but what a wonderful day! Life is really good right now, and very busy! I feel like I have a million things to do tomorrow; grocery shopping, cooking for a party at work, buy a secret santa gift, and oh yeah!! I actually have a ton of actual work to do at the office tomorrow! I better rest up!
Oh yeah! We picked a month for the wedding - SEPTEMBER 2015!
I'm hoping September 19th is available at the venue we want...
We shall see ;)
