I’m so sorry that I haven’t posted something new in several days.  I’ve been super busy since about the middle of last week, and my blog has taken a backseat to the rest of my life, unfortunately.

It all started on Thursday.  I got my hair done at 12:00pm, and that took about 2.5 hours.  My roots were about an inch long, so it was definitely time for a touch up!  It was getting to the point where I had to wear hats every day.

After my hair appointment, I went to work, which is normal during the week; but at 5:00pm I met Elizabeth at The Streets of Indian Lake (a shopping center in town) and went shopping for different wedding items.  And, ok, ok, I bought a couple dresses too.

The next day (Friday) was work as usual, but I asked Steve if we could leave a little bit early so I could rush home to make a pasta dish for Elizabeth’s lingerie/bachelorette party that night.  I ended up being about 20 minutes late because of that dang pasta dish!  But it tasted pretty good, so I guess it was worth it.

That night, we went downtown to celebrate Elizabeth’s last couple weeks as a bachelorette, and we didn’t end up getting home until about 3:30am!  Steve had gone to Rustin’s house for a little guy’s get together while the girls were out, but sadly he was the last one left by the time we got home… a few hours.  I felt pretty bad about that, but he was pretty understanding, and waited for me at their house so we could drive home together.

Saturday and Sunday were another 2 full days of working on the Smoke House, and by the time we got home, I was too tired to even think about writing a blog post.

Monday was our first day at work that we were short one employee, so I was pretty busy taking over all her responsibilities, as well as setting up our new cash register.  We decided to get a cash register because we have been getting more and more walk in customers and the register will help us keep better track of cash transactions.

So here we are on Tuesday, and I finally have time to post a little something on my neglected blog.  I have several pictures from Elizabeth’s bachelorette party and a step by step tutorial on the pasta dish I made for the party that I still need to post.  So don’t worry!  More posts will be coming soon!!!

    Glad to see a new post…I’ve missed ya! Sounds like you’ve been crazy busy. Hopefully life will soon slow down for you a bit. Looking forward to your pasta recipe! 😀

    Hi honey, I guess we are “super busy” at the same time. The ladies and I (5 of us) just finished cooking dinner for 215 church and school staff members and their families on Monday and Tuesday. Everything turned out alright, except that I over- bought (as usual). But the compliments and appreciation for the food was worth all the work, that’s for sure. And by our doing this, many more of the staff could attend our awesome Bible conference that has been an incredible blessing.
    It was good to see you back at your “Blog” position. I so enjoy reading your daily posts. Well, dear girl, time to read the great Book. Love you lots! Mom 🙂
