Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

looooooong weekend

This weekend was a long weekend, and I am still recovering.

Hubs and I helped my bestest and her hubs move on Saturday. It was the perfect day to move... cold and snowing! I hurt my back.... of course, and was out of commission for the last 2 hours of moving. So I had to separate heavy boxes and light boxes. Then we had to leave for my mom's surprise.

Needless to say everyone in central Ohio had the same idea... Lets go to the Zoo lights! There was a lot of traffic and we were about an hour late... my brother and SIL weren't to happy but in my defense I did tell them we were going to be late, and kept them updated on our progress.

My mom was so surprised! We walked in to the zoo and I had already texed Bro and told him we were walking in. Hubs, mom and I started walking very slowly towards the light show and I see my mom's mouth drop and her eyes get really big. They wanted to sneak up behind us but she turned around. She cried and I only got 2 pictures... bad pictures, but I will post them when I get a chance.

Sunday it was Hubs and I's turn to move. That's right we still weren't out of our old place yet. Remember my post about having a little of the bahumbugs? Well this weekend cured it. We donated so much stuff to the Salvation Army, 2 truck loads worth. It wasn't the same as buying a new toy but we donated clothes, furniture, toys, even a Christmas tree. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy. Anywhoozer, we finally got the last load of stuff from the apartment and we are finally done with them. PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!

So now my house is in Shambles with everything that was left at the old place and the garage now in my living room. I only mention this because we have Christmas with my mom tomorrow in to Christmas eve. My to do list is about a page long and I still have some shopping to do, my mom is such a trooper though, she is helping us get everything put back together because I got sick from being out in the cold for so long.

I will leave you now to enjoy your Tuesday. Hope you all have a good one!



  1. Thank you sooo much for your help. We couldn't have done it with out you guys. You won't believe that unpacking the truck only took 1.5 hours, maybe even less. Crazy, right?!?

  2. how fun ... never thought of going to zoo lights. i'll have to look into it!
