August is a big month in our family: 2.5 anniversaries and about seven birthdays if you count cousins and grandparents. I say 2.5 anniversaries because our other sister was married by a justice of the peace in April so that she and her then fiance could get matching orders to England, but they had a "wedding" in August. Lola and I celebrate the August wedding because that is the date we had to put on our bridesmaid gear . . . but I digress.

Sixteen years ago today, I said, "I do" to my Frequent Flyer and everything changed. Someone else's books were mingling with my books on the shelves, someone enjoyed martial arts films which I just didn't get, and someone ate my really crappy attempts at healthy eating. Note to all you gourmands out there: grapefruit meringue is probably not a good idea, but using whole wheat flour is just plain stupid.

This weekend, we plan on doing all the things we love: eating out, seeing a movie, attending a concert, and just generally having a good time with each other. There probably won't be much knitting, but I think I can handle that. We will most likely be cleaning the house because life goes on even when you are saying, "I do," all over again. Have a wonderful weekend!
PS - Yes, that first photo was taken in a Taco Bell. Yes, I ate two soft tacos in my wedding dress. No, I didn't pay . . . the kind folks at the Derr Road Taco Bell paid for our meals. They had never seen a bridal party come in for a quick bite to eat. Oh, the song for this post is our favorite song and we had it played as the first song at our reception. Okay, I had it on the mix tape that we played at the reception, which is upstairs in my dresser.
