Before The Day Begins

Good Morning my friends, I am slowly re cooperating :-) I have the first set of pictures to post. It might take several posting to get all the beautiful pictures posted. It was an absolutely beautiful day and wedding. But, I do have to back up just a little bit. My brother came in early on Saturday to start helping with the heaving preparations, the rest of his family would be in on Sunday. Greatly appreciated, so much, he was invited to the lil baccalaureate dinner. Included in the dinner is the bride of course Brooke, her lil girl Emoree, her mother my sister Joy, brother man Jeff, the brides maid Michelle, her best friend for 17 years :-) and then me the aunt. Lil Emoree striking a pose...LOL, Brooke and Michelle in this picture.
This is a special picture of me, brother and sister. We cannot remember the last time it was when we 3 were together. Without it being like a holiday, without parents, just us so it was really cool and special. So special I am posting the picture and I am not to crazy about how I look in it.

My sister Joy isn't she just gorgeous! LiL Michelle-sweetie girl
Okay this is the beginning of Sunday. We girls went to go get our hair did. I felt bad for my sister she could not join us. She still had so much to do back at the house, so I went to fill in for her.
Kimberly our stylist for the day. She is all of ours regular stylist anyway. But, she came in early on Sunday to do this for us all and may I add to quote her "girl I have one of the worst hang overs I have ever had" wasn't even planned...needless to say she wasn't able to attend the wedding that is how bad she felt...but what a trooper first thing Sunday she was. We all had fierce hair dooos... and were able to withstand the 20 nautical knots we were expecting later!
Baby girl didn't even have nerves she was chilled...I was working my bottom lip all day!
Again upset this is not my sister with her daughter but I am very happy to stand in for her. Again so much, I am posting me here without any make up or ear rings and I haven't had my hair did yet I still have to be styled :-)

Sounds like an exciting day.
Glad it turned out well. No rain and all.
I think you look just fine with your hair undid!

Reddirt Woman said...

OH, MY!!! How exciting! You are really building the excitement. You get an "Atta boy, girl!" from me on this post.

As for #60... do the math. Say it out loud...

77 - 69 = 8. You get 8 more... I just threw that in for some levity. That post was pretty tough in a lot of ways. I'm sure that you could come up with 100 things, you would just have to think about it for a bit. I just keep a notepad handy and look at a lot of old and growing up photos.

Don't feel dumb about #60. I've had to explain that smart remark a bunch in my years of telling it.

Waiting anxiously for your next post.
