Knee Socks and Lemonade

Last weekend I attended the wedding of my gorgeous niece Mandii. No typo...her name has two i's. I first met her almost 28 years ago; and everyday since she has blessed my life. Her smile is huge; her laugh is infectious. And she always makes lemonade when handed a lemon.

When it came time for me to help put her blue garter on, I gleefully noticed that she had white knee socks on...YES! I have taught her well.

And then 5 minutes before the ceremony was to begin.....she needs to the bathroom. How many bridesmaids does it take to hold up a wedding dress? Kristi is able to capture one of the best wedding pics of the day.

The following day Stan and I took off for a couple of needed mindless days in Vegas; my treat to myself for putting the wedding together and for finishing Fall Term.

The first night I have booked to see Andrew Dice Clay. Front row seats....was that a good idea when you're seeing Andrew Dice Clay? hahaha!

The second night I have booked to see The Jersey Boys ~ the life of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. The production is WONDERFUL, except......

...... I am sitting next to a lady who sings "as well" as I do and she thinks its her duty to sing along to every song they do. I think of Mandii's ability to always find that glass of lemonade and I decide to do what Mandii would do. I smile big and sing with her!
