Bridal Bonanza Begins

It's hard to believe, but in less than a month I will be on a one-way flight to Grand Junction to start my married life! Wow! I can't wait, but there's much to do before I go ...

It all began Friday with my girlfriends taking me to the Kansas City Power & Light District. We had dinner at the Peach Tree, which was absolutely delicious. I had grilled pork chops and baked mac & cheese. They even had live jazz. The one hiccup we had is that it took nearly an hour and a half to get our food. The restaurant had been slammed due to a conference. In short, everyone received their meal on the house. The food was definitely worth the wait.

Afterwards the gals and I walked over to Howl at the Moon to listen to the dueling pianos. These guys are phenomenal. You give them a request - any song - and they can play it. Then others bring requests up and they're looking at that request while singing another. So much fun!

On Sunday my mom's church threw a shower for me after a potluck and it turned out great. We had great cake and punch and some fun games.

It's an adjustment having the attention put on me, but I've been told to just soak it up. So that's what I'm trying to do. Everyone has been so kind. I have another church shower Thursday and one thrown by friends on Saturday. It's a party all the time!

And to end the post, this was a gift from Donna ... I told John about it, and he didn't think it was as funny as me. It's just luggage tags ...
