I wasn't home for a full 24 hours after our camp reunion before I hit the road again.
I came home from camp on Wednesday afternoon just in time to get my hair done.
Folks, it was needing it. I hope you didn't look close enough at that group pic on the last post to see that my part was more gray/white than it was dark brown!
When I got home from the hair fussing, I was feeling quite a bit fussy myself. I had been going on several short nights of sleep & the old fever/sore throat/achiness had set in. Along with the paranoia.
It was too late to see my real doctor so I took myself to an after hours clinic & let them gag me. I had to know for sure if I was incubating a nasty Strep infection. I was supposed to leave Thursday morning for Iowa for Erin's wedding. Since I was a Strep Bride & I know how awful it is, I had no intention of carrying the same dread disease to my beautiful friend on her wedding day.
The test was negative. Thank God!
So I took myself home & got to bed early. After a good night's rest I wasn't completely good as new but the fever was gone. I packed things up quick & hit the road!
I met up with Roxanna & Becky about an hour up the road & we headed west together. It is so nice to have traveling companions. We had my little Corolla stuffed up with stuff like we were headed back to Northland for a semester of school!
We had a good full day with Erin & her family getting things ready for the wedding. And of course we all had to get pedicures.
|The reverse French Manicure was very popular amongst us girls. |
Only Erin & her momma went with a regular paint job.
|Roxanna makes the loveliest gift tags. That girl has some talent!|
|Jaime, Autumn, & Roxi|
The wedding day was a fun, busy, flurry of a day. We got to see Scott & Jaime, Erin's brother & sister-in-law. The last time I saw them was on their wedding day, years ago. Since then they have added a daughter & son to their family.

|Had to get a smooshed in shot!|
They had super great cake. The layered one had raspberry filling & the Texas cake was German chocolate. No one went home without satisfying their cake craving!
A quick shot before the aisle walk!
Mr. & Mrs. Cates!
It was a beautiful, fun wedding. I'm so very grateful that we all got to be there together.
Time always goes by too quickly & it seemed like we hugged hello, turned around, & then hugged goodbye. Once again, I have to praise the Lord for the friendships that He has blessed me with. Even though there will be two of us in Indiana, one in Ohio, one in Texas, & one in Japan, I know the Lord will keep our hearts knit closely.
Now I'm going to stay home for awhile!
