Thank God I'm Not A Celebrity

After this crazazy weekend, I'm surprised I'm not dead yet!!! Let me put it to you this way - I didn't get no readin' done.

H1 and his bride came in Friday, went to Salvo's for dinner. Let me tell you for the record - if you go to Salvo's for dinner, drink refills are not free. Did we notice that small print on the menu? NO. And they fill the cup to the top with ice before they put the beverage in, so you don't get much and they very generously offer to bring more drinks every time they stop by your table to check on you. In our case, that came to $50 in drinks. Sodas, not alcohol. Yeah, ouch. I will say their all-you-can-eat crabs and crawfish were excellent (and messy). Dipped in melted butter, yum. Then the guys went out to the strip bars with the groom and we ladies went to Bon Temps (don't think we missed the True Blood reference, 'cause we didn't!) and had drinks and caught part of Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonks.

Too early Saturday morning we got up and headed out to The Court of Two Sisters for a 40th Anniversary Brunch for Mom and Dad. It was wonderful, fine dining, the musicians played a tribute to Mom and Dad, and we sat and had totally inappropriate conversation for such lovely surroundings.

After that, we dropped the guys off at home and the girls went to Loew's Hotel for a mani/pedi (the bride picked black for her nails and mine are ho-red). Very relaxing and fun....then home for a few minutes rest and to get ready for the big event...

The Wedding. The bride wore red and the bridesmaids wore black. It was very sweet. The church was empty so Molly was able to run around without bothering anyone and the service was short but sweet. Dinner followed at Aunt Leni's Restaurant and it was delish. Originally we had planned to go out and party some more but our age is starting to show and we just hung out at home until we fell asleep.

Sunday we got up, got dressed, met the fam for brunch and H1 and SIL headed back to Houston with Ian in tow. The weekend went by too quickly! It was filled with fun, love, booze, "that's what she said", and general mischief. We miss you guys already!

Because a perfect weekend would be too much to ask for, Sunday afternoon I was caught by one of those "speed vans" on the side of the road. I was doing 45 in a 35 so I'm expecting my ticket in the mail next month. Yay me.

Miss you already and don't worry about Ian, we are only beating him a little.

BTW, those speed vans are $140.00. Dont ask me how I know.
