We're having a wedding this weekend!
What is about weddings that just bring out THE BEST in everyone?
Tomorrow, my sister in law and I are hosting (hostessing?) a breakfast for our new sister in law. When I got married, someone gave me a beautiful luncheon the day before and I felt a strong need to pay that forward. Luckily my mom is arriving this morning so she can do fun things like iron table clothes and cook breakfast casseroles. Yay for moms!
Yesterday I went and bought a ton of food for said breakfast. While I was shopping, I told the kids they could pick out something small to get if they were good. So they did. I'm embarrassed to tell you what it is because I swore my kids would never wear these but they rhyme with Hilly Randz (hangs head in shame). But whatever, that's what they picked and it was $2. When we got to the register those dang bands, bracelets, whatever they are, would not stinkin scan. The poor gentleman working was so frustrated. The line behind me was SO LONG and I felt really bad. I apologized to the man behind me. I said I would just put the dang bands back but I had already promised my kids they could have them. He was very kind and said he remembered those days of bribing your kids so I shouldn't feel bad. It ended up taking almost 8 MINUTES to them to scan and in the end, we just rang up something else I had bought that was the same price. And would you believe that my kids haven't even mentioned them since we got home yesterday? Lesson learned: Don't buy silly bandz.
Another lesson learned: When you buy expensive orange juice for a bridal breakfast put a note on the container that says, "IF YOU DRINK THIS, I WILL SHAVE YOUR EYEBROWS OFF IN YOUR SLEEP!" or something along those lines. Because if you don't, you will wake up in the morning and your husband will have drank half the carton. And you will have to go buy more juice.
Wish us luck this weekend! My kids are in the wedding and, seriously, there is no telling what Kendall will do. I told them they could get a new movie if they did good. (NOTE TO SELF: STOP BRIBING KIDS.)
