My sister and I met in Manhattan yesterday. Earlier in the week, she disclosed that she hadn’t found anything to wear to my wedding. This, dear reader, is a situation that can reduce even the strongest  woman to a pile of weepy neurotic rubble.

So we were on a mission.

After about an hour browsing through the racks, she was hungry and wanted to go to this one particular restaurant near Hell’s Kitchen for brunch. I was hungry too.

As we walked back to a table, I spotted one of my aunts and thought to myself ‘Wow … what a coincidence that Aunt S is here at the same exact time as us. Isn’t that amazing?’ I was oblivious at this point.

Then I saw my other Aunt S … and then Aunt K … and then my mother. Surprise! They threw me a low-key bridal shower complete with music and fried green tomatoes.

Thanks, girls … I loved it.

Gift from Aunt S

    It was so fun to be with you…especially during the impuse buying stage of the day…

    I feel like I almost know you from Susanna’s Blog. I am J’s little sister. I just wanted to pop in and say I hope your wedding tomorrow is MAGICAL. If I can my Triplets to nap a little longer I’m going to get lost in your blog for a while.

    Have a FATASTIC day tomorrow.
