I ended up grabbing a catalog at the Scentsy booth since I didn't see a warmer that I was in love with. Virginia was not being miss patient either. We moved onto my friend Angela's booth for Spoiled So Sweet Boutique. She has the best bows, bottle cap necklaces, and tutus. I mean the bows she makes just blow me away. We ended up getting two necklaces and one drop dead cute tutu for Virginia. Virginia wore her tutu out to the parking lot and everyone was saying, " oh she is so cute." Virginia was loving every minute. She did a few turns and smiled.
Then we were off to grab a quick present for a birthday party. After snagging the present we stopped at Walgreens for a bag for the present. As I am grabbing the toy out of the trunk and putting the present in the bag, I manage to lock my keys in the trunk of my car.
I felt like hitting my head on my car in frustration. I am known for locking my keys in the car. My best friend Lisa and I have locked my keys in the car almost three times in one day. But I had been so good and it had been so long since I had locked the keys in the car. To make things worse no one knew where the extra key was. I had to call a locksmith. The locksmith takes almost 50 minutes to get to me and then I just wanted to scream when I saw the bill. I got in my car and got home to relax and forget about my afternoon.
That night we went to CiCi's for a family night out and Virginia ate her weight in pizza. We made a quick stop at Pet Smart. Virginia loves the fishes, dogs, cats, birds, well pretty much every kind of animal. I think the fish and the birds are her true favorites.
Sunday brought the major event of the weekend, Sarah and Norman's wedding. Two of my best friends from high school got married at Carrigan Farms in Mooresville, NC. Virginia and I drove up for the wedding and the location was gracious. The back drop was a quarry with a pond and tall trees. The guests were seated on a sandy beach area where Norman and Sarah were standing on a rock surface looking over the pond.
Sarah was breathtaking in her lacy wedding gown. The ceremony was wonderful and even made me laugh watching Noman and Sarah dance back down the aisle. Really showing both their fun loving personalities. Virginia spent the whole ceremony playing in the sand. She was as happy as can be as long as she was digging in the sand.
I also was thrilled to see one of my friends from high school, Brad. It had been nine years since I had seen him and his family. Since then him and his wife have had a baby boy, Wyatt. Wyatt is just the cutest thing ever. He was so well behaved for a such a little boy, I think he is 13 months. Virginia on the other hand was not such an angel. She was wired and wanted to do her thing. Between jumping on me, knocking tea on the table, and insisting on playing in the sand she was just not her well behaved self.
This event taught me that with a toddler, you have to have a game plan. You need water in your bag for them to drink during the hot summer. You need snacks to keep their bellies full and happy. Having a distraction toy such as my DS is also a good idea. If you don't have said items you will find yourself sitting on a rock eating dinner while your child plays knee deep in sand.
But the night was beautiful and Norman and Sarah said their I Do's and both looked gorgeous. Virginia and I made it home in one piece. Worn out and exhausted both our bed's made for a nice ending to an amazing weekend.
