A day of errands with erin

While I've been off work for the last 6 weeks I've had the chance to have coffee or breakfast with some of my favorite people.  My mom has come up once a week to have lunch with me, my friend Chelsea and I have coffee/lunch every Friday, my cousin Erin and I have reconnected over breakfast a couple of times and today I'm having coffee with my mentor/ friend.  I've really enjoyed my time with all my friends.  I've even been able to have coffee with my sister, which usually ends in shenanigans :)  I'm so grateful for all my friends and family for supporting me during my time off.  It only makes going back to work next week harder.  I would love to stay home and enjoy coffee with my loved ones, but Monday morning it'll be back to the grindstone.  But lets not focus on that for now. 

Lets focus on yesterday with Erin.  Her wedding is this Saturday so she had last minute wedding errands that needed to be done and I was invited to tag along.  First we met up at the best breakfast restaurant in town...Cosmos. Then we returned some dishes and clothes, then she took me by the Lakeside Rose Garden where she is getting married.  She's having a very small wedding with only her immediate family, so I am only going to the reception so it was really cool to see where the wedding will be held.  It's a really beautiful park.
 

this is where her ceremony will be





 
I can't wait for her to get back from her honeymoon in Europe! so I can see her wedding photos. 
 
Next we went out to Hilger's Farm to pick up some pumpkins for her decorations.

 
I even picked up a couple of gourds for myself. 
 
 
The last errand we did was picking up her wedding dress.  I got a special show, and got to see her in it.  She's absolutely stunning.  I was allowed to take a picture, but I promised I wouldn't show it before her wedding.  I'll post it on Saturday with reception photos.  I was so thrilled to be a part of her special day and I am excited to see how the reception turns out. 
 
I'll leave you with this photo of Pepper, this is what happens when I try to eat breakfast and she's in the same room.
 
I'm not staring at you mom.
 
Have a great day.
God Bless
