We such a fun weekend. I wish every one could be so wonderful!
Matt always lets me sleep in on the weekends, so that's how I started Saturday morning. Then we all puttered around a bit before packing up and heading over to West Seattle to talk to the woman who is doing the photography for our wedding. She used to date my brother something like 15 years ago and now lives here in Seattle, so I got in touch with her about doing the pictures. We show up at their lovely home and they have a little girl the same age as Iris and she had about 25 little princess dresses that the girls ran around dressed up in. They made us an amazing lunch and we sat and chatted while the kids played. It was really so great and neat to see this woman again after that many years.
On Saturday night Matt's sister came over and got a bunch of supplies to make pizza and she and Matt and Iris put together some pizzas for us. It was a really nice visit with her, as it always is.
This afternoon we went over to a friend's house to talk to him about our wedding invitations. He had told Matt that he was going to make us a late lunch, so we were intrigued by what he would have ready. When we got there he said he was making Pad Thai and had everything set out and showed us how to cook it. AND he had bought the dry ingredients for us to bring home to make our own! I thought that was so incredibly sweet. The food was AMAZING and we can't wait to try it ourselves.
After visiting with those friends we got home in time for me to get to a yoga class and our other friend came by with her little girl to watch Iris and Eloise for us so Matt could go to play basketball. When I got home from yoga my friend and I sat and visited while the girls watched tv. It's always so nice to catch up with her and I got the good news that she finally broke-up with a woman she was in a toxic friendship with. It was something I was hoping she would do for a while, but my friend is such a committed person, it was hard for her to get to the point that she decided to end it.
I'm looking forward to swimming once or twice this week and also Iris going back to school after being on spring break. It's only two mornings a week, but it's so wonderful for her to have that interaction with other kids and for Eloise and I to have the time alone together while Iris is gone.
