Weddings and Birthdays

I have this weekend off.  I rarely get weekends off, but I booked this one specifically.

I am going out of town this weekend.  I have a wedding to attend.

I am going solo.  My husband is unable to join me, so I decided to go by myself.  

I love getting together with my extended family.  We all live so far from each other that it is only at times like this, weddings (or funerals), that we get a chance to get together.

I will be travelling with my parents (feeling like a kid because I hate to drive on the 401) to my sister's house in Milton. It is her birthday today, so we will also be celebrating that this weekend!

The wedding ceremony is being held at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville (fancy schmancy), which we will not be attending.  We will be arriving for the Reception, which will be held at a different location.  

I haven't had to pack for an overnight stay in such a long time I think I've forgotten what I need to bring!

I made a list (on my IPhone LOL), and will try to remember everything I need.

you cant see the rest but it believe me there's more!!

I have decided to wear a dress and again the question of where to wear my pump comes up.  This time, instead of the garter i will be wearing a pair of bike shorts under the dress, and it will stay nicely in place (dress has no pockets but is fairly flowy so it shouldn't show!)

I am really looking forward to being responsible for just me.  I know how ridiculous that sounds, but I feel that I am always responsible for everyone else as well as myself!  When my kids were small, if we went anywhere, I had to get them ready and packed (their stuff not them haha!), and I usually packed my husbands stuff too.  Now I have grandkids and they usually accompany us whenever we go away.

But this time it's just me!  Oh the freedom!

Well I'm off the start the packing.  Wish me luck!  Hope I don't forget anything!



  1. Have a great time at the parties! You'll do fine on your own.

  2. Enjoy your weekend of family!!! The bike shorts idea is a great one, I'll have to try that.
