I'm pretty sure the Matron of Honor isn't supposed to say that

So my sister Jess and her family came up from South Carolina for the week and we have been having a week of gluttony and fun :)  I'm totally lame and somehow managed to not capture a single moment of the entire week but I would like to think that is a testament to the way awesome time we had.

Say Cheese!
I think my most favorite part was reliving college with Alex, Jess and her husband Kevin over a few drinks at my house.  I recall (kind of) reenacting the scene from "The Little Mermaid" when Ursula steals Ariel's voice.  Nothing says wild time like Disney.

Since Jess is my matron of honor, I made her do some wedding stuff while she was up here also.  I dragged her to David's Bridal and had her try on the bridesmaid dress and watched me try on some wedding dresses too.  Yes, I already have a dress so I tried on three different dresses and then asked the salesperson to bring my dress out for me to try on.  Well, something was lost in translation because my sister didn't understand that the final dress that I tried on was my dress.  I stepped out in it and she said "Um, I don't like that one as much as the's too plain."  FML.

Oh well.  Today before she headed back home, I dragged to her to an open house at our venue.  Don't feel too bad for her, there were free drinks, food and cake.  The event coordinator for the venue made up a table in our colors maroon and purple.  I have to admit that this was the best selling tactic ever!  After seeing the colors in all the upgraded linens, I'm so much more motivated to find the extra money in our budget for this.

The open house and doing wedding stuff with both my mom and my sister got me really excited for the wedding :)  It also made me realize how  much I miss my sister being around :( 

Do your siblings live far away?

Does your idea of a good time involve Disney movies?
