Random Thoughts by Mandee

I thought it was time for a new post but don't have much to write about. I am nearing the end of the tunnel affectionately called..."My Sister's Wedding". Somehow I was hired (free of charge or course) to be the wedding planner. I would like to think that I was chosen because I find joy in making things pretty or because of my love of all things decor but really I think I was appointed simply because I have no life and the only one available all day...EVERYDAY. I will take lots of pictures and share, but only of if the miracle of making a LDS gym look a little less like well a gym actually occurs.

There will be yummy desserts though! I am now the proud owner of 2 Sephra Chocolate fountains (anyone want to come over for some chocolate) and 20 pounds of premium milk chocolate. There will be strawberries (of course), fresh pineapple, frozen bananas, berry kabobs(that is just a fancy name (hey that sounds just like those Fancy Nancy books I read to Madelyn) for blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries skewered together on a stick of some kind, homemade rice krispy treats, cream puffs, pretzel rods, peanut butter balls, slivers of a walnut tart that is to die for, etc, etc, etc. AND....for those who don't like sweets....there will be nachos and homemade salsa. We are a family who loves food but especially MEXICAN food. We wouldn't know that to do with ourselves if there wasn't a tortilla chip in close proximity.

I will be glad when the festivities are over and I KNOW Dallan will be VERY glad when it is all said and done. Then his wife won't have any more excuses for NOT getting the house cleaned up. Having said that maybe I don't want it to be over because as you know....I LOVE A GOOD EXCUSE!

Let's see what else....I am excited that the new season of So You Think You Can Dance is almost here. Although I don't think it could possibly top last season. Madelyn has only 18 more days of school left and then comes the DREADED summer. 2+ months of being locked up in the house because it is too dreadfully hot to go outdoors. I think we will be spending LOTS of time at my grandparent's cabin, but they don't know that yet.

Here is one final random thought and then I must get back to doing something...do you think it's bad that I love watching the Biggest Loser while eating a drumstick (ice cream not fowl) all the while thinking it would be nice to lose a few pounds?

Hi Mandee!

I can't tell you how many wedding receptions I've catered and worked at for free...you have my sympathy!

I just got hooked on The Biggest Looser. My daughter-in-law watches it. Even if they guaranteed me that I would win, I know that I could NEVER be on that show.

Can I ask you a favor? Go to my blog today, and click on the link in my post. I'm a finalist in a contest to win an established money making blog, and I'm spending my day begging for votes!

You final thought made my night. I laughed so hard.

I'm sure you'll do great with the reception. If you want some ideas you should talk to Sarah Wrigley, I think she has some pictures up on her Facebook page of the last wedding reception she did at the stake center. It was amazing.

Oh, and I love your final note too. You always make me smile. (:

uuummmm, I know I don't know your sister, but can I come to the wedding for the food?

I can't wait for So You Think You Can Dance to start up again too. Love it! I love that they are crossing over some of the dancers to Dancing with the Stars! And will you think I'm a sad sad woman if I admit that I have watched every season of the Biggest loser.....

I can't wait to see pictures...and if I lived anywhere near there I would totally crash that party! The food sounds divine!
I love the mental picture of you watching the show and eating ice cream. Too funny...but now I want homemade salsa and a drumstick, the fowl kind.

Good luck with the wedding!
