Where have I been?

Monday, July 30, 2012

Apologies, all, for not writing sooner! I have no good excuse other than being insanely busy. :) Last week, I went up to Silver Lake for three days with Dan and his friends to ride dune buggies and 4-wheelers. Who knew I would actually like it? While I remained a passenger in the dune buggy, when it came time to try out the 4-wheelers, I drove and managed to do decently well! I'm not sure that I know how to brake and only went over one dune (approximately the size of a speed bump), but, whatever, I drove it! I also got in some great runs at the lake. On Wednesday, I went by myself and ran six miles. It felt SO good to get a long run in... and I even made some wildlife friends when a deer and two doe ran across the road about 100 feet in front of me. Mostly, though, it was encouraging to see that I can still run for a solid distance. Phew!
There I go! 
I came back on Thursday and went into wedding mode for Shannon and Ben's big day. Thursday night had Shannon and me ironing pocket squares and printing seating arrangements on doilies. And Friday resulted in three hours of turning the red barn at Saint Pat's park into an absolutely AMAZING wedding venue. I have to hand it to Shannon... everything was perfect! Almost everything was done completely by her -- the pole covers and sashes, the bouquets, the centerpiece design, the backdrops, the decorations, everything. It was amazing to see the transformation. 

Saturday was an entire day of primping: manicures, pedicures, hair appointments, make-up, and then, wedding time. I've literally been looking forward to Shannon's wedding since I was 13-years-old, so seeing it actually happen was incredible. Shannon made the most beautiful bride... and her vision was completely perfect. 
Why, hello, Mrs. Rooney!
My favorite guy and me :)
So, that's where I've been! I apologize for not writing so much. I'll do better... especially since there are only TWO more weeks of summer vacation! It's go time!
