My big sister is getting married

The Foodies at work were nice enough to ask little ol’ me to write a guest post for their blog. I of course said yes! Not only do I love their posts, recipes, tweets, etc. but they are my twitter friends for God’s sake, of course I would write a post for them. I got their back.

The topic was ‘If you were stranded on an island what one food could you just not live without?’ My answer: hamburgers. Scrumptious hamburgers. Read the full post here, and thanks again foodies!

On another note – tomorrow is the big day! Well, not the big day (as in Wedding day) but the big day as in travel day. Colin and I leave tomorrow around 6:30 pm for our flight to Ireland, we will get in to Dublin around 8:30 am Thursday morning. We rented a car (please say a prayer for us. This could potentially be the end of our relationship… I can see it now, Colin: “Colleen, read the map please, stop falling asleep, I need you to help!”, Me: “Colin, slow down! These roads are very narrow! Ahh wrong side of the road!”)

Thursday and Friday we have some wedding prep stuff, Friday afternoon we have the rehearsal and then the rehearsal dinner, after that we’ll have a “welcome” party for all the guests to hang out, catch up and share our excitement! Saturday my Dad is hosting a golf tournament for those interested in playing (most of the men…) and the rest of us are headed to the Rock of Cashel, Saturday night we have Bru Boru – a traditional Irish show and dinner. It’s a lot of fun. :)

Sunday the women of the bridal party are headed to the spa for some pampering, and Sunday night all the bridesmaids plus Meg are going to stay at my cousin Aisling and Christians house so we can have a little slumber party. Monday is the BIG DAY! I may or may not have a few tricks up my sleeve… You’ll have to stay tuned….

After the wedding my parents are hosting a breakfast for everyone on Tuesday morning right before Meg and Matt head to Greece (so pumped for them!) And then Colin and I will be on our way for a few days of traveling – we’re going to Galway for two nights and Dublin for one. Any Irish pro’s out there have suggestions for us??

So I still feel as though I have a TON to do. Tonight is going to be a late one! I’m working from home for a few hours tomorrow so I should be able to get a lot done tonight (hopefully everything) and if need be, finish up tomorrow.

I can’t believe my big sister is getting married – we’ve been thinking/talking/dreaming of the day one of us would get married since we were little girls. She has been my best friend for twenty-four years now. I’ve looked up and admired her since the day I was born. She has taken such good care of me, and now she has Matthew to take such good care of her. Matthew and I have been friends since before they started dating – I am a huge fan of his! I’ve always been cheering him on. I wish both Megan and Matt only the best life has to offer – plenty of smiles, compromises, babies, and blessings. Much laughter, tenderness, trust, adventure and excitement. What a wonderful journey to be on together. They are going to kick ass at marriage! I couldn’t be happier for two people. They are amazing and I love them both.

Meg and Matt!

Heheh, credit goes to either Moll or Kelly on this one, I forget which one!

PS – I am not going to be able to make it through this trip dry eyed. Hopefully I can control myself during the ceremony/my MOH toast. Wish me luck – I’ll need it!

I’ll miss you all while I’m in Ireland, but don’t forget to still visit the daily craic, I have some AMAZING guest posts coming ‘atcha. You truly don’t want to miss this. Thanks to all who have helped! {Twitter/blogger friends are thebomb.com.}

Will be back on the 8th (with TONS of pictures!), enjoy the craic while I’m away!
