I didn’t work Thursday, Friday (my company gives you two days off to get married), got married Saturday, did clean up and wine returns Sunday, took vacation day on Monday and yesterday kept doing that head-bobbing, nap jerk at work because I was absolutely WORN out. I went to bed before 8 and I’m feeling fairly human today. I have my new wedding clogs on because Wonder Dansko pal Kitty from Colgate brought me two pair of wedding clogs.
We began getting the yard in shape on May 4. Here are some before photos:
Deren’s family came over and power washed and weeded and did other really nice things for us. And then Derwood built raised beds for us. Two! In two hours! How amazing is that?
Then I got a manicure, the kind that they bake on but I can’t think of what that’s called right now. The girl who did them was named Dian but I’m thinking Dian is not really her name. She was darling and happy and chipper and I didn’t understand anything she said but I nodded and laughed a lot.
And then we got pedicures. Brigid had to take her jeans off and wrap a toga around herself because her damn jeans were so tight she couldn’t roll them up for the pedicure. Skinny jeans should be causing epidemics of yeast infections.
Just realized. I had a Gel Manicure.
