ONE MORE very busy day!

(Picture from bacholette party)
Yesterday I did some shopping for alcohol and more pop and veggies.... and stuff.. got my haircut and made the ring bearers pillow.   a very busy day.  the hardest part though was unloading it all!  Now, there is sooo much work to be done today.   As now.. we can start counting down the hours! 
some things are hard.. like knowing how much alcohol to have.  there will be 200 people.  who knows how many will drink and how much they will drink.  theres alcohol.. hopefully theres enough.  Im worried because there are opinions that think we need a lot more.. but when I was buying it all, I just kept thinking.. who is going to drink all this stuff?   there will be two kegs of beer too.. and a TON of pop and water. 
If theres not enough alcohol, then I will feel bad,  but at least it would be used up then! and I will be glad of that.. because I dont know what to do with it if its left over!  I hired a girl to bartend.  And then.. how do you know how much and what exactly to buy for mixers.. Im not a drinker.. so Ive no real clue.. oh well, it is what it is.  And I dont really want anyone to get wasted there either.

I had to "steal" these pictures from other places!  the ones above of the girls bacholette party and this one of marlaina and her cousin I got off of Tiffanys aunts facebook page.   Isnt this a cute picture?  They look like they are saying.. "whoa.. whats on your head ?"
Marlaina scared us to death last night when she fell out of the highchair.. Im sure you all remember the sick feeling in the pit of your stomachs when something like that happens.  We almost took her to the hospital for xrays, but then she was crawling and smiling again after a while.  my poor little princess pie!  I just LOVE her to freaken pieces!
So, today will be very busy!  starting in just a few minutes, I will be baking~  snickerdoodles and peanut butter cookies!  and then peach cobblers for tonights rehersal dinner.  The cookies are for the wedding reception. 

I've got to go pick Jen up after I make the cookies.  shes going to do my tootsies!  Poor brave girl! my feet are just about 52 years old and they look it! lol!  But Jen is a good girl and she loves her mommy!
the tents are being set up this morning between 10:00  and 11:00, so we'll be spending most of the day and night down the street at my girlfriends house where the wedding will be setting up as much as we can do today.

Alot of it will have to wait til tomorrow morning. so we'll be there at 7:00 am  filling hellium balloons and setting tables.. etc...   LOTs of work!
Im very excited now.. my baby  is getting married and I do love the girl he is marrying.  and.. the icing on the cake.. they are planning on moving out very soon!  woohoo!
Still dont have my computer back.. but hubby said maybe tomorrow morning he will pick it up.  that would be good.. I will need it on sunday!  I'm sure I'll have tons of pics to post!
Happy weekend girls.. be back after the wedding!
Oh.. and the weather??? calling for picture perfect and 73- 75 degrees~  who could ask for anything more!?

Viv the last thing you need to worry about right now is alcohol! Better to run out anyway. You don't need a bunch of drunk people running around, getting into cars etc. Just say "there is what there is, and then they have to switch to pop/lemonade/whatever"!
I'm so glad you're going to have perfect weather!
Congrats and Have Fun!
Erica :)

WOW...I am tired just reading this post! The "others" that think there should be more alcohol....they are always welcome to bring more that they bought, right????? You are working so hard to have this be their special not worry about the booze, and yes, if there is too much there will be people getting blitzed, and that is not good, so see you were looking out for everyone! :):) Love ya Viv....just enjoy yourself and let the rest go the day of the wedding, OK?????
