yesterday was meghan’s bachelorette party up in santa barbara – meghan, her friend margaret and i went on a wine-tasting tour and drank wine until we couldn’t swallow any more. we went to four wineries and sampled about six wines at each one. the wine was delicious and the whole thing was pretty educational. our tour guide, jessica, was really nice. afterwards we went to opal for dinner and it was soooo good. i’m really excited about the wedding! so many people are coming to the wedding that i haven’t seen in a really long time. but, i’m nervous about my toast (even though i’m going to keep it short and simple and pretty much know what i’m going to say) and i don’t have as much time as i’d like to practice walking in my shoes (stupid procrastination). stilettos and grass are poor bedfellows, but they look so good. i also have to figure out what i’m going to do with my hair and make-up and accessories. meghan and i got earrings in santa barbara, but i don’t know if i should wear a bracelet too or what. all of these things to think about that i never bother with on a normal day.

this coming weekend is josh’s bachelor party – camping – so meghan is going to have a girls’ night at her place while she holds down the fort with the puppy. then the next weekend it’ll be the Main Event and a flurry of activity!
