We made the Daily Press!

(Thanks to Betsy, aka, my "Wedding Coordinator")

Less than four months to the wedding, I'm starting to get a bit stressed, only because I don't like things like planning. But things must get done.

Jeremy and I went to St. Louis for a wedding of a college friend this past weekend. It was a lot of fun to see people from Baylor I haven't seen since graduation. The wedding was interesting (too much about submitting to the husband in the sermon for my taste, but I enjoyed the rest of it. Good music.) The reception was a lot of fun. The DJ played good music, always a plus. And there were lots of people dancing, Jeremy even danced with me for more than two songs! However, being at the wedding made me more stressed than I already was because it made me realize how much stuff I have to get done.

It was nice to get away for a weekend though, even if two days were spent driving. We stayed with Jeremy's cousin, Shaun, who is going to chiropractic school in St. Louis. I had met him once before and it was nice to see him again (and nice to have a free place to crash!)

I read the four Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books last week, and I have to say, they are much better than the movie. The movie is based off the first book only, but changes quite a bit. Also, the books are the closest to what it is like to be a girl ages 15-19ish. I have to say, between the four different characters, Ann Brashares nails adolescent teenage/early college girl life. I was very impressed and I can't believe it took me so long to get around to reading the books. Young Adult literature is one of my favorite genres, how did I miss out on this series for so long?
