Impatient

Now that I know for sure that I'm going to be home for Christmas, I'm really really homesick.

I haven't been home in 4½ years!

I've been talking to my sister, Meme, a lot about her wedding plans: dress, hair, decor, etc. I wish I could be there to help her plan. She's going to have me do her hair and makeup and I'm going to see if my brother, Dewey, can learn my version of "Wonderful World" on the guitar so I can sing it for her. Meme asked me when I was a teenager (10 yrs ago) to sing at her wedding. But she asked me to sing "Sweetest Thing" by Lauryn Hill. We'll see, I think she might be over that song. If Dewey can't learn it, I've gotta start calling my peeps in O-town and find out who's gotten really good at the guitar. I've also started looking for gorgeous clothes to wear. My sis is counting on me to make sure my mom and sibs are dressed beautifully. They're ready to kill me already. I'm making them dog-ear magazines and catalogues so I can give them a proper fashion consultation before we go shopping. I'm freaking out with excitement even though it's 3 months away. There are so many people I need to see. Hopefully, we'll have the chance to drive 4 hours north and visit my Daddy's grave and the beautiful area he grew up in. I really really miss it. Aaahhhh! I'm so excited and so impatient!! I'll take lots of pictures!

In other news...

My mom and I might be driving up to Utah in 2 weeks!
Hooray!
She wants to see my Grandma and I need to get my shizzle outta my Grandma's basement. We'd be there over the weekend of the 15th. I want to see as many of you as possible, so we might need to do some party planning. I don't care who has homework! It isn't a definite thing yet, so keep your fingers crossed and I'll keep you posted....
