This weekend, the FD and I spent our time apart. He left early Friday morning to head up to his cabin and meet up with a bunch of guys for their 4th annual spring turkey hunting weekend. It all started the first year we were married as he hadn't had the chance to have a real bachelor party - he decided to set up a guy's weekend. And the tradition has carried on. This year, FD got his first turkey ever - he was quite excited.
While he was away playing, I spent the weekend with women! On Saturday morning, M&L and I joined forces to host a Bridal Shower Brunch for Caley. It was complete with yummy breakfast foods, a load of great gifts for Caley to enjoy in her new home, and a few special blessings presented to her by some lovely women.
Right after the shower, I headed to W.loo to my SIL's house. My brother was hunting with E so we decided to spend the time together. Also, her sister, Lindsay, who's finance was also hunting with the guys was there - it was a great afternoon and evening of girl's time ... which included some delicious desserts from Symposium. I was also so happy to catch up and have a sleep over with the BFF now that she's returned from her visit to Scotland and Malta. I love hearing all about her adventures!
Everyone say Hello to the BFF (and her delicious cake)....
On Sunday, we headed to church and then came home to get my Laura's house ready to host a personal shower for Lindsay. Most of the photos are inappropriate for the blog so I will just share the group photo. It was so much fun. I always have a blast hanging out with the girl's and getting to be on C-Biscuit's team for one of the games made it all the better!
Following the shower, I headed home and spent the evening unpacking, doing laundry and organizing things for the week. This morning I went to campus to do a trial run of my thesis defense for my advisor and a few colleagues. Now, I've got three weeks to put the finishing touches on my talk until I defend!
