Happily Ever After

I left for Bakersfield on Friday at about 2:30PM. I got back at 3:00AM last night.

I was there go see my cousin get married. It was an absolutely beautiful wedding despite the downpour that started as the wedding was about to begin. I’ll write more about it in the next day or two. After the wedding we pulled The Reid Family Room Raid on the wedding couples hotel room. It’s a Reid tradition that whenever something big happens (weddings, graduations) we ‘decorate’ their rooms. Jarrett and Katies hotel room was decorated with 9 rolls of toilet paper, 3 cans of silly string, 3 rolls of streamers, 1 ton of confetti, 2 bags of assorted chocolates, a short sheeted bed & 1/3 of a tub full of ice. In a later post I’ll also get into what an anal, neat freak my cousin is. HA!

It was really a lot of fun. I got on the road at midnight last night for two reasons 1) To avoid traffic today from the end of the Thanksgiving Holiday and 2) My Benjamin needed me to come home.

So, that’s where I’ve been for two days. After I’ve fully recovered from the trip I’ll post the rest of the details.

  1. Jarrett! Well I already told you I remember him from high school. A very ambitious boy that one was with ASB President and all his millions of school and club activities! This town is too small 🙂

  2. He is still VERY ambitious!! He’s currently Dean of Students at CSUB and working on his fourth degree.

    When he was about 6 or 7 he started telling me and his sisters that he’d be President of the United Stated someday and to start learning how to take orders from him THEN so when he WAS the President we’d be used to it.

    He’s a character that boy. 😉
