I never thought I would ever put Brett Favre and Manny in the same sentence....

Quick update

Thank you so very much for your prayers and support. You all are truly wonderful and I'm so thankful I have my blog as an outlet. My mom is doing better, we still don't know very much. But I'll keep you all posted!

I'll have more about my weekend later but wanted to add one quick picture!

Hope you had a great weekend!

Lots of Prayers

This weekend was supposed to be a wedding planning packed weekend. It still will be but just not as I pictured. My mom was going to be flying out of Madison at 6am this morning for my shower in Boston tomorrow. I planned for us to have my first dress fitting this evening and tomorrow we'd have the shower and on Sunday we'd be meeting with the flower lady to make some final decisions!

Well I got a call from my mom this morning telling me she couldn't make her flight and that she would try to get out on a later flight. And then she told me why....

Last evening my mom went to the ER with a very bad headache, they admitted her to the hospital right away and found out she has two blood clots in her brain. They don't have a lot of information right now but it seems everything is going to be ok. She cannot fly for a while but they're hopeful things will work out. It's been a pretty rough day for us thus far, but i've been able to talk to her a bunch of times while she's waiting for more and more test.

I'm going to hit the gym now, I'm feeling a bit dazed and think a good workout might help. We need a lot of prayers right now (and of course always)! She's going to be just fine and I can't wait to have her walk me down the aisle!!!

Love you momma!

Only if you're Kimba vol. II

We had a great weekend on the Cape, more on that later. 

We got back around 1pm this afternoon so I cleaned up a bit and headed out to get some things done. I felt pretty bad ass driving around in the Jeep with the top down, the wind blowing on this hot Sunday. I pulled into Stop n Shop and the sky looked like it could rain but it was still pretty sunny and I hadn't listened to any weather reports but what was happening on the Cape.

I head inside grab my cart, swear at myself that I forgot our 15 bags in car to be "green". So I head to get a lb of turkey when Music Guy calls me and says where are you, I say I'm at the store, do you think it's bad and i should leave...he says no, you have about a half hour so don't leave just grab some things as you're there and leave. Sounds perfect. So I get a few things and pretty much feel i'm on supermarket sweep! I quickly check out and as i'm getting my notsogreen bags together and walk outside. It is not raining but I know it is about to. The second i start running to the car it starts to downpour. I throw the bags in the back and try to put the top back on. Knowing there is no way I can do it myself. So i jump in and speed out of the parking lot. I of course run into traffic so picture this...pouring rain and no top on your car, can't do anything but make sure your cell phone and blackberry are covered. I finally pull onto our street Music Guy comes running out and we put the top on and I unload the Jeep and walk inside and the rain stops. Classic! 

I will say i went back out to the Jeep with a towel and cleaned everything up. It actually washed up the sand from the weekend nicely, though i was soaking wet. 

MG told me to go inside and he'd take care of it all, but i figured I was already very wet and that it was turning fun! 

Two months from today we'll be getting married! Looking forward to it!!!

We have a busy week ahead of us! MG's cousin is flying in on Tuesday and she's coming to stay with us on Thursday and Friday. My mom is flying in on Friday, we're going to my first dress fitting that evening, Saturday is my Boston shower and then we're going down to the Cape Saturday afternoon. Then come Sunday my mom and I are going to Yarmouth to meet with my flower lady! Fun stuff coming up!!!!!

I do promise I will be posting pictures of Liane's wedding this week!

One of my fave pix of the weekend!

Thursday night kick-off party!

I flew into Madison at 9am on Thursday morning. It was nice to finally get there and get the weekend started! I had about 15 things I needed to get done and was so thankful my mom took the day off to help me out! Just Maid of Honor things and also a few extras for the wedding. Like my shoes! Which isn’t the smartest because if you’re going to be wearing heels all day you’d at least like some time to break them in. But no, not if you’re me! Here are a few shots from the first night!

Yeah, Madison!!!! Here is our state Capitol
The Bride (Liane) and Groom (Wade) looking as calm as can be! Which was the look all weekend long!

Maid of Honor and the Bride

Of course a picture of me and my mom! Who i dubbed as my personal attendant for the weekend! My mom was so great all weekend long, running with me and running around for me! Note, my jacket was $37 at JCrew, i got it over the 4th of July. I just love it! A bit bright, but i'm a huge fan. I did get a few strange looks that night, seems it's more of an East Coast look!
