Lisa: Tired

I went to Maryland to help with a friend's wedding last week, and I put 500 miles on my rental car. Here's how (not in chronological order):

1. Washington, D.C.

  • Christmas shopping

  • 2. Silver Spring
  • Got completely lost coming home from Washington, D.C.

  • 3. College Park
  • Bought vases and rocks for reception table centerpieces

  • 4. Laurel
  • Bought emergency kit supplies

  • ring bearer pillow

  • corsage pins

  • CD sleeves for wedding favors

  • frame for grandmother's gift (she sang the Lord's Prayer during the ceremony)

  • 5. Bowie
  • Returned the ring bearer pillow

  • Christmas shopping

  • 6. Millersville
  • Wedding chapel

  • Reception center

  • Picked up reception center key

  • 7. Odenton
  • Bought lunch for everyone

  • 8. Gambrills
  • Just passing through!

  • 9. BWI Airport

    10. Glen Burnie
  • Mother of the bride's home

  • Made bridal bouquet, boutonnieres, corsages, and floral cake topper

  • Assembled various gift packages

  • Assembled emergency kits for bridesmaids

  • 11. Woodberry
  • We got completely lost trying to get out of Baltimore--but on the plus side, we passed the streetcar museum and a bunch of homeless people digging through a mountain of trash!

  • 12. Baltimore
  • Sightseeing

  • 13. Westfield Hills
  • Rehearsal dinner

  • Bought groom's wedding band (yes, Sarah and I picked it out and everything)

  • Bought flower girl's shoes

  • Got manicures

  • Picked up parents' gifts

  • Bought ring bearer's gift

  • Christmas Shopping

  • 14. Annapolis
  • Hotel (where I left some of my clothes--they said they'd ship them to me)

  • Bought bride's shoes

  • Returned bride's shoes, which didn't fit

  • Bought bride's hairpiece

  • Bought fish for reception table centerpieces

  • Procured delicious mini-pitas and deliciously evil hummus
  • Congratulations, Auntris!'s good to be home.

    Um. Are you really giving people decorative rocks for Christmas? Because that is actually quite useful...

    Oops. Link fixed! And of course, by "Christmas shopping" I mean "buying things for myself."

    Christmas shopping for ourselves was great. Urban outfitters was great. That hummus was EVIL, EVIL, EVIL (yet delicious) but someone in Utah should make mini-pitas. Best invention ever.

    We don't eat enough hummus. Just sayin...
