Thursday morning started at 5:30 am. I saw this as I squinted through the blinds:
Next, I grabbed Heather, and we went back to my house to grab things we forgot before we headed to breakfast. Heather got to play errand girl with me all day. I had coffee #2, and took coffee #3 to go.
After a long interlude at Hobby Lobby, we made our way to the airport. We had been told it was an hour and a half delay, with the flight getting in to DIA at 11:30. We got to the airport at 11:06am.
Doug was meeting up with the boys at 5, and Heather needed to get her nails done, so they both rushed out around 4:30. I collapsed on the couch and didn't move for an hour and a half. When I did move, it was to go to dinner with my sisters-in law, my bridesmaids, and a couple of other friends. We knew we needed to knock out the bouquets for Saturday after dinner, so we tried to behave on the drinking front. The bridesmaids, Victoria's mom, and I went back to the apartment to finish the flowers. It was far more entertaining than it sounds, and the girls had a blast assembling their own bouquets. It made the whole thing so much more personal for all of them.
Victoria spent the night, and we passed out at 1am. A very long day, but so full of great people and landmark events.
