One of them is that we have a son getting married in early November--which makes it three weddings for the Pearl boys within the space of eleven months!
I've blogged about what I'm going to wear: a pale green jacquard tea-length skirt and jacket set with embroidered flower embellishments (a total steal at 80% off its regular price), along with a pearl-and-Miraculous-Medal necklace I had specially made to suit my needs over at Etsy.
Are all women just a wee bit insane, I wonder?
My soon-to-be new daughter-in-law (I'm going to call her "Ginger," I've decided, and those of you who know her will understand why this is a perfect blog alias for her) did the nicest thing for me on the morning of her shower, which was just this past Sunday. I'm not one to do much with my hair, because I'm hopeless at hairstyling. So I usually just wash it, pull it back in a headband, and let it air-dry. But she asked me if she could blow it out for me (and while doing so, infused it with some wondrous hair-thickening potion from Nexxus), and I don't believe I've ever felt prettier!

(Look ma, no headband!)
So, my husband and I got to spend precious time with a good percentage of our family members on Sunday. He and his boys golfed while we girls enjoyed the incredible buffet, the mimosas, and the gift-opening. The only sons missing were the "bookend" boys: the youngest (who's a senior out at Notre Dame); and the oldest, his wife Regina, and their three adorable little girls (who are also out in the Midwest).
This same group was together in VA not too long ago for another shower--a baby shower for little G-Man, who is getting so big that he's making life a bit uncomfortable these days for his sweet mommy, Preciosa.

Well, I'm having trouble figuring out how I should end this here post. So I'll just say so long for now. But I'll be back again tomorrow, bothering you for your opinion about whether or not I should wear my trademark black hat for the upcoming wedding, since I'm going to be going outside the box this time around and sporting an actual hair-do! (You'll be waiting for that post with bated breath, I'm sure...)
