Bekah' To Do List

My sister is getting married this coming weekend! Congratulations Liz! :-) Of course we are taking the family and driving up to Chicago so that we can be there. As un-stressed as I have seemed to be compared to the rest of my family, it is now becoming crunch time and I have a list a mile long of things to get done before Thursday.
So, for your viewing pleasure, here is my list:

Sunday - Laundry, clean house, work on 3 projects Ethan has due on Tuesday
Monday - Wal*Mart run (need to buy nylons for girls, socks for boys, undershirt for J, hair clips for Lexi's hair, and snacks for our pending road trip)
Tuesday - Drive to Hilton Head and get my hair colored and trimmed
Wednesday - Go into Savannah, pick up my bridesmaid dress
Thursday - Get everything packed, pick the kids up early from school, drive to Nashville and meet my sweet, sweet husband!
Friday - Drive the rest of the way to Chicago and hopefully make it in time for Rehearsal Dinner
Saturday - Do Lexi's hair, go get my hair done and be to church by 12 for pictures. I am a bridesmaid, Jason is a groomsmen, Nicholas is the ring bearer, and Lexi is the flower girl! Phew, that in and of itself is enough to exhaust one family right there!

Now, the fun part! Saturday after the wedding, my parents are taking the four kiddos and Jason and I got a room at a Bed and Breakfast in the little town of Dundee, IL. We'll have a queen size bed, our own private terrace, and a bathroom that has a hot tub for two! Oooh, la, la! I so can't wait! We are also going out for dinner Saturday night to a place called The Hideaway. It is in another small town in IL and is supposed to be an actual hideaway and speakeasy used by Al Capone. I ate there once as a small girl with my parents but know I never enjoyed it the way I will come Saturday (with my adult pallet and the company of my wonderful husband, it will be perfect)
Sunday Jason's mom is inviting some people over for a brunch/birthday party for Jason and Nicholas.
We might try to get out of town Sunday night but we'll see.
From there we have to re-trace our steps to Nashville, say goodbye to Jason and head back to Savannah!

Phew, I'm tired just writing all of this. Not to mention the rest of life going on among all of this. Stuff like school, gymnastics, small group, work for Jason, dinner, know life!

Wish me luck, and look forward to some awesome pics next week! My Lexi as a flower girl, Nicholas in a tux and most important, my sexy sexy husband in a tux too! Woot, woot!! :-)

Have fun, Bek! You will be in my old stomping grounds- I lived in Carpentersville and drove through Dundee everyday! Say hey for me! And about the pics, post only pics of the wedding! LOL! Have a great time!
