News of the Day and Bridal Shower

Not much going on around these parts.
Well except a wedding and shower and reception and stuff like that.
Front page news is the police doing a sting operation and catching a woman who is stealing DVD's from the library.
True story.
Front page.

Once a year the newspaper does an insert called OUR TOWN
It features various people from the area.

This year they featured First Responders and Emergency Personel.

They did an interview with several of the police, paramedics and other first responders.
And they included the ER.

They did a story on Dr. Hammar BEST DOC EVER!

And me.
(This is the closest to centerfold I'll ever be.)

It was very kind of them.

And of course I think Emergency Responders TOTALLY ROCK!!!

In other news:
-The Bridal Shower is tonight.
-The weather is cooperating.
-The Artisan Bread is in the oven. (Kimmie's blog is awesome!)
-Chicken Salad is done.
-Oatmeal Chocolate bars are done.
-Strawberries are dipped.

-More pots to plant tomorrow.
Last night the Bride-to-Be decided that pots should be the table decorations.

I'll be busy with pots and Krylon paint tonight after the shower.

The other flowers are enjoying the 80 degree temperatures we are having.

And so am I!

-Pedicure......NOT done.
I won't post a picture of that. You're welcome.

In all this "busyness" I stopped in the middle of the road while driving home a few nights ago.
I snapped a picture of this breath-taking sky with my phone.

I was calmed.
I was overwhelmed
I was reminded there are things and events bigger than we are.

A Beautiful Centerfold for sure. I am so happy honey that you shared it with us.
I know all to well what you are going through right now with the wedding. I said a little prayer for you the other day when I got the beautiful invitation.
It is an exciting time but over whelming but you are use to stressful situations so I know everything is going to go really smooth for you.
Love everything you are doing and the food looks so yummy.
Thanks for including me in this beautiful day

Loving the sunset picture

And pedicure, schmedicure..... I have the last remnants of 4 of my toenails. I might get one more week out of them before they are gone and any hope of cute feet for the rest of the season are gone.

So much going on in your neck of the woods. Sounds like fun. How awesome that you were in the paper.
That is really exciting.

Kimmie said...

LOVED all of your colorful pots. You pulled them of perfectly for the reception!

I laughed HARD at your comment about the Center Fold. Way to be featured in that way. Makes me sad we don't get the paper anymore. I need to find a way to read the article.

One thing about we truly have the most AMAZING sunsets!! The one you captured is WOW!!

So happy you are enjoying some of the recipes I Posted. (Artisan Bread is the bomb!) .

I can't believe how much work you did for the wedding day and reception!! I don't know how you do it all!! YOU ARE AMAZING!!
