Hope I Live To Tell About It.

If I live to tell about this weekend it will be a small miracle.

Currently I am in a house with 4 extra family members. But one mile down the road, in the Best Western, are 2 more. Then just down the road from that, in the Hyatt Place, are 5 more. Then there is Meridith's apartment, currently holding 3 more. All in all, for lunch today there will be NINETEEN family members at my house.

NINETEEN!!

That's fifteen more than I normally have - and one away from sudden death.

They decided getting together at my house for lunch would be nice. It probably went something like this...

My Mother: "Ohhh, we 'aught to all go to Melissa's for lunch. It would be so fun. She will have to cook for us and then we can judge her on inability to bake anything that doesn't sink in the middle."

My Granny: "Oh, true. That will be fun. Let's do that. We can also rummage through her closet and reprimand her for not hanging up her clothes by those little plastic straps."

My Aunt: "This will be delightful! And while we're at it, let's make fun of her hair."

Needless to say, I'm ecstatic.

So my cousin Tyler (who shall be forever referred to as Tyloo - much to his chagrin. Long story.) is getting married this weekend in Franklin thus all the family members. So thanks for that, Tyloo!

We love the girl he's marrying and couldn't be happier. So happy in fact, I am thinking about packing my unitard in my purse should I feel the need to do an interpretive dance to the theme from 'Ice Castles' at the wedding. They will probably want this, I feel sure.

It will be a very fun weekend though. I am excited to get all dressed up for a downtown Franklin wedding - spend time with my cousins and my fam - and maybe, just maybe, convince my Granny to line dance with me on Saturday night at the Wildhorse Saloon.

Oh, who am I kidding? That would never happen...I can't line dance.

Famiy has a way of reminding us of why we left home. Have a super weekend!

Have you been over to Heather at Mindless Junque today? She has a video that can show you how to line dance. It's fabulous. If not, just call me....I'll give you all the pointers I can. That's how I first attracted my man....it was to the "Chattahoochee" at Smokin' Joe's.

Whoohoo! Have fun. I'm always up for a little interpretive dance, so I'm sure the bride will be too.
