Saturday morning, the boy and I headed to Little Rock for Katie and Kent’s fiesta. First, we stopped by my parents’ house to say hello and pick up a serape for the party. We even got to play with my mom’s new iPad. I need one. Now. After helping set up at the party location, we went to Katie and Kent’s to quickly get ready. The fiesta was a success. Katie looked beautiful, and I can’t wait for her June 26 wedding. We rented a margarita machine, and completely finished it…75 9 ounce margaritas. Yum.
The party was at Emily and Raydodd’s home, and it was my first time to see it since they moved in after their July ’09 wedding. It was gorgeous. Adam said it looked like something out of a magazine. And it did. I would say a cross between Southern Living and Real Simple. They’ve done a great job in the decorating department.
And I have to brag on Katie (and Kent) for a second…she graduated from Hendrix with me and then went on to nursing school. She graduated May 15 and already has a nursing job, which she starts in July. Kent is in his last year of med school. I’m so proud of them both!
Unfortunately, we didn’t get to spend any time with our Little Rock friends Sunday because we had to head back and get the boat. We are bringing it to Hot Springs this weekend, so we need to clean it up since it has been on a lift at the marina since last year.
We went for a boat ride, and the lake was so crowded. This was the first weekend it actually felt like summer, so everyone was out. But let me tell you, that water was FREEZING. Seriously. I don’t know how people were swimming in it, but they were.
After a pasta-filled dinner followed up by ice cream, we decided to take a long walk around Adam’s neighborhood. It helped, but I still woke up full…I have a lot of working out to do this week to make up for everything I ate this weekend!
