The Block Party is the first big success. The weather was perfect, everyone showed up and had fun! The bounce house was a hit with everyone (even Maggie was in it a few times), the band rocked, and party went on until 1 AM. I called it quits at 11 - knowing that the kids would be up nice and early Sunday morning. The only thing that we will change in the future is not stressing on the organized stuff. The scavenger hunt was a HUGE hit, but after that - the kids just wanted to run around and have fun on their own. No adults played bocce, no wiffle ball was played, no volleyball. There was a water balloon fight though.
My bright red dress has arrived, and it fits wonderfully. I definitely need a new bra, but this woman knows how to make a plus sized dress. I need to just 'work it' because I haven't worn a sleeveless dress in ages - but it's almost like wearing nothing - so comfy and light and fun.
And finally, the wedding that the dress is for? I decided to make the couple a quilt at the last minute and it is awesome. Wanna see?
OK. That crappy iPhone pictures isn't doing it justice, but it's a cool quilt. The fabric is hand-marbled with sparkles in it. But the coolest? I had my quilter put in their name and wedding date, plus a 'much love from Aaron and Cece' in it:
I was happy to see Monday today. It was a great weekend, but I'm glad to have the kids under someone else care for a bit, sit down and relax (physically). Of course, work is still freaking out, but at least they need me, right?
