Only about a 2 months behind on this one.... On a Thursday afternoon toward the end of May, S and I loaded our car up with a ton of wedding decorations, dog supplies, clothes, snack foods, and of course the pup, and drove 7 hours to Jackson, Mississippi for my brother D and sister-in-law B's wedding weekend! We arrived fairly late on Thursday night at the lake house that my parents had rented for the weekend and promptly crashed after feeding and walking the pup and unloading the car. The next morning Pandora woke us up uncommonly early (she's usually fairly good about letting us sleep in on weekends, but since she was in a new place and knew that "grandma" was also there she was raring to go sometime around 6 am... Ugh.) We were able to take it easy most of the day on Friday. We ran a few errands (S needed beer and we had to get Pandora's nails trimmed because the clacking against the wood floors as she sprinted everywhere all the time was driving us nuts) and then drove into town to meet up with D and B for dinner at The Manship, one of their favorite restaurants. It was delicious and I'm now committed to learning how to make rillette so I can eat it all the time. After dinner we went to the hotel where a number of the wedding guests were staying so that we could grab a drink with some of D's friends. That night my other brother J arrived with his wife J.
