Farrah, Lindz’ cousin, is getting married! Isn’t she beautiful! The younger girls put on a small, quiet (ha!) shower for her. Lindz said she wanted her house to look like it "threw-up valentines" – which is not Farrah’s style at all. When Farrah arrived at the shower, we sang "Going to the Chapel" and danced around her. We played games and shared stories from our own weddings. We played "pin the bouquet on the bride" – notice how mean Kara (the Diva’s daughter) is - holding the "bride" upside down. Of course there was the usual "design a wedding dress" game with toilet paper. Then we had Farrah throw her candy bouquet to the single girls. Jesse and Kara fought good-naturedly over the bouquet. After wrestling over the bouquet and lots of laughing, I snapped this photo - Kara said, "You know, I really like your dress!" Jesse said, "Really?" I loved the look on their faces - and they were sincere.
Lindz came over and lounged around with Jesse watching football. At the end of the Vikings vs. Saints game, there was some lady on stage giving away the big trophy. She was wearing a white blouse with puffy sleeves, tucked into a dark skirt. Lindsay said, "That lady is going to look back at those photos and regret that outfit. Yep, I would say that is the most regrettable play of the game." Poor Toby, he had to listen to Jesse, Lindz and I make comments like this all through both football games.
