The pre-wedding festivities are in full-force and I'm getting a TON of great auntie time in with ms. charlotte (who is killin' me with her cuteness and super-chattiness. she's talking up a storm and says things like 'oh my goodness' and 'auntie header!!!!!!'). Jenny and Brent worked Monday and Tuesday but then have the next week and half off, so I volunteered for Charlotte duty. Fun times :)
I must say both Jenny and Brent are very chill and handling all the pre-wedding stress fabulously. On Saturday night, their friends held a big poker tournament (serious stuff - they hold a tournament every month but this was a special one in honor of Jenny and Brent). I didn't play (too serious for me!!) but Jenny held her own and hung in for a long time - and Brent WON (we call him the BIG POKER CHAMPION now!) We were out until 2 am (Charlotte was staying with Grandma), lots of good food and fun times. Jenny had THREE beers and was hilarious :) And the guys kept trying to get Brent to do shots but he avoided most of them (I got a pic of one though!) - and then trounced the competition.
Sunday Jenny and I got up and went surfing (first time we have surfed together in 3 years!) So much fun, I didn't do great but we decided it was the board's fault (right jenny?? i had a broken skag on my rental board so that is why I didn't get any real waves, right?? :) It was a great time and then we hung out at the Diamondhead lookout and goofed around while I took my 365 shots.
Sunday afternoon was Jenny's bridal shower tea at Mariposa (Neimen Marcus). Very swanky and fabulous, hosted by Jenny's friend Gail. Unfortunately, that was right around the time I realized I managed to get quite a nasty sunburn from surfing in the AM. Not fun.
And then there's just been a ton of great times sitting around watching olympics, giggling madly with Jenny, playing with charlotte and not thinking about work stress at all :)
