I Have Survived!

This past weekend I went to Florida to visit my family for Easter.  I still haven’t made it back home yet, so this post will be short and sweet because I have to get dressed soon and go to the airport, but let me just tell you what a crazy weekend I have had!  It is going to take me an entire week’s work of postings to tell you all about it.  For now, let me give you a little taste by throwing some highlights at you:

1.  Our plane was diverted on Friday and we sat on a runway for five hours.  They will be releasing a movie shortly called “Pregnant Women on a Plane.”  It was not pretty.

2.  My Mom and Mom-in-Law threw me a big baby shower on Saturday night.  I have pictures.  There were presents.  And meatballs.  It was amazing.

3.  My sister got engaged right in front of our entire family!  Its an awesome story!!  I have pictures, and even though there were no meatballs, it was still amazing!

4.  I had an emotional meltdown during the Easter church service.  A meltdown involving mascara streaking down my face.  It was pretty.  I have no pictures of this and there were, sadly, no meatballs.  But it was pretty embarrassing.

5.  Chris and I participated in the “kids only” Easter Egg Hunt at his Granddad’s house because there was money in some of the eggs and, let’s face it, we’re pretty desperate right now.  I was a little horrified at first to be, you know, married and WITH CHILD and yet still fighting middle school boys for plastic eggs.  But I got ever it really quickly.  I have pictures and there WERE meatballs.  Glorious, I tell you.

So, that sums up my weekend in bullet points.  But don’t you worry.  Each of these stories will be told in more detail starting with a post first thing tomorrow morning.

For now, I must away for my nose runneth like a mountain spring and my hair frizzeth like a pomeranian… Adieu!
