Since our son is getting married in June, I’ve been looking for a dress to wear to the wedding, one that would be good for an afternoon wedding. I finally found one that is exactly what I wanted. The mother-of-the-bride chose a blue dress with the length being a couple of inches below the knees. So, I needed to find one the same length and a different color. I decided on a black dress with a shimmery gray/silver cardigan. It has an attached printed waistband, the print containing black, white, and a shimmery silver (all colors in the wedding).
I already have a dressy black purse that I’ve used only once at another relative’s wedding, so all that’s left to look for are shoes and jewelry. (plus losing at least five pounds minimum)
We’ve been doing some planning for the rehearsal dinner, too. It was a quick and unanimous decision to have Mexican food, and we’re checking into places that do catering. Right now, Abuelo’s is at the top of the list. We’re thinking that Sopapilla Cheesecake would be good for one of the dessert options, but we’ll need several because we have 40 people on the list right now for the rehearsal dinner. We’ll see.
.It’s going to get colder this week, so soup sounds good. Here’s our menu for the week:
Monday: Genghis Grill (have a coupon buy one meal/ get one free)
Tuesday: Chicken Tortilla soup
Wednesday: Leftover soup
