Hooky day

Psssst, I have a secret!! I'm playing hooky today! My sister is in town for the week and we're going shopping for her wedding dress today. I'm very excited. We were up for a couple hours last night looking at bridesmaid dress styles and fabrics. She has appointments at two stores, plus we're checking out a hotel for room blocks. Paisley and Clover are excited to spend the day with my parents' dog Emmy. All I hear is them zipping in and out the doggie door chasing each other.

Our weekend was great - we had so much fun. We went to Scott and Melissa's on Saturday and Dan got his new tattoo outlined. It's very cool, and unlike any of his other pieces. It's going to look awesome when it's done. I got to play with little Miss Kadence all afternoon. Her first birthday is on August 31st, and they've asked me to do her cakes, so I need to start dreaming up a design. I think I've got some good inspiration to start with, though.

On Sunday, we went to my high school friend's house for a "BBQ." I use the term loosely because I don't think anything actually touched the grill. It was more like boiled hot dogs and some veggie patties no one ever actually ate. It was nice to see old friends and meet their spouses, including my high school boyfriend and his wife. One friend brought her 1-year-old daughter who was just completely mesmerized by Dan. It was fun to watch him play with her and I think he got a little kick out of the fact that she cried when I tried to hold her.

I will keep your secret. :)
I hope you guys have fun! We all need to take a little mental health day now and then. (I consider shopping good for mental health.)
