LilZoot’s Wedding Party 20

LilZoot’s Wedding Party

I’ve mentioned how important it was to us that LilZoot feel as big of a part of the wedding as we were. So, we let him choose some friends to be in the wedding too. Of course, knowing he’d pick my best friends children helped! Seeing Lauren and Leah last night, and Type A visiting Junkie and Ariel this weekend made me think of them all in their dresses and tuxes. They were AWESOME that day. They did their jobs well and danced with me all night long, which is what I had asked them to do. I didnt want...

ZZzzzzz… 16

ZZzzzzz…

I could really use a nap. Will someone cover for me if I curled up under my desk for a little shut-eye? I’ll forward my calls to your office and you can just tell them “She’s in a meeting.” How about it? Oh. And you all give great advice. The family reading hour rocks. So, my next question is – who has an easy recipe for beef stew that can be cooked in a crock pot? Remeber: EASY is the key word. EASY. Now – if you need me? I’ll be the one in the fetal position snoring away in...

To Be Grounded, or Not to be Grounded…

Decent grades come easy to LilZoot, but he has to work for the good grades. Every year in the past he brings home As and Bs with the occasional C. Well, this year is a whole other story. He has yet to bring home a Wednesday Folder (the folder that has the week’s assignments/grades/notices) with ONLY As and Bs. Every week there has been at least one C, and sometimes, even a D. Granted – they are all due to careless mistakes or going too fast (a quality I fear he inherited from his mother). So, a few weeks ago...

Spontaneous Sushi. 13

Spontaneous Sushi.

Dude. That would be an awesome name for a rock album, if I were, you know, in a rock band. My point? Yeah. Stace had to bring Leah in town for a check-up this afternoon. She brought Lauren and we all met afterwards for sushi at our favorite Japanese Restaurant. We ate obscene amounts of food, laughed a lot of laughs, and wore tiaras. In short? A perfect night. Click on the pictures to see them bigger, and yes, there is a courtyard/fishpond inside the restaurant.

Setting the Date 16

Setting the Date

Well, once we were engaged we wasted no time in setting a date. We had no interest in a long engagement, but we needed time to plan a wedding for about 120-150 guests. I looked at the calendar and saw that October 25th would be a good date because it was a weekend LilZoot had with me, and he was out of school the following Monday which would mean that he would only miss four days of school for the FamilyMoon. I called MrZ to make sure that was a good day for him, and we started with the planning....
