And now for a word from OHmommy.
She’s classy. She’s stylish. She’s polite. She’s here because I’m none of those things, and she needed to be more like me and let her Bitch Flag fly.
I CAN NOT WAIT to meet her in July. I want to love on her and pet her head and tell her she’s wonderful. And maybe smooch on her a little bit.
Please, show her some love.
Today marks the final countdown to my baby sister’s wedding.
Only 365 more days to go.
Naturally, I am in the wedding party. As well as my son and two daughters. All of us involved in her special day. Even months before getting engaged to her man I received emails entitled “What do you think about this dress?” and “Do you think having a reception at the gardens is classy enough?” and “Don’t you just LOVE these flower girl dresses?”
OMG. No, I do not. Not at $300 a pop, times two. I do not. I don’t like them at all, baby sis. I do not.
Last week she sent me an email with half a dozen images of flower girl head pieces. I just imagined my opinionated middle child and her tag-along-baby-sister on the day of the wedding, tossing the Martha Stewart inspired lilies of the valley fresh wreaths in the middle of the church isles, and stomping on them. And. So. I sent her an email.
“Hey. Love the look of a fresh wreath. I tried that on my flower girl. She hated it and never wore it and I wasted money on it. So. Take a look at this adorable headband on etsy just-in-case one of my girls has a tantrum. XOXO Pauline.”
Minutes later. My super cute pink phone vibrated and I read this….
“Thanks, but I’d really like to pick out what they wear. It will be part of the theme of the wedding I create. And hopefully you can help by trying to get them used to the idea beforehand and let them know. If just for the pictures even, Id be happy. I do appreciate your ideas though. They are good and I am ready to consider many things. Just ultimately I will decide what fits in with my vision best. Its a one in a life time thing/vision, right?”
I. Have. Not. Responded. Yet. Because…. OMG. My blood is boiling. Only 365 more days to go, yo!
