Sister's Visit/Wedding/Canada

It has been a bit crazy around here but when I think about is almost always crazy around here! My sister came from AZ with her 3 year old and her 1 year old and let me just say I am in awe of her! She is so patient and loving, and when you are dealing with 2 babies that are totally off their schedule it is a test for sure! I wish I was more like her on so many levels...she is strong and soft at the same time! We really didn't have much time just the two of us, the kiddos seem to demand our attention and no one really slept late might talks were always interrupted. We tried to jam so many things into an 8 day visit.
We headed up to Canada for our cousin's wedding, and it was so much fun! I got to see so many of my cousins that I haven't seen for 10 years or more. It was a formal wedding at a golf and curling club and it was just beautiful. We didn't go to the church we just went to the reception. It would have been a long and unbearable day for the children so we had to choose only one of them. The bride and groom were breathtaking and the club was so nice. We sat down at our assigned table and the lights were dimmed and we saw these little treats on our table along with olives and other snacky things.
Well, they kinda looked like white chocolate shells so Cory popped one in his mouth and by the look on his face we knew it wasn't chocolate. As you may have guessed it was butter...little hard balls of butter...and Cory ate one whole! Yummy! Well we laughed all night long, not only at the butter boy but at the interesting people we are related to and the dates they choose to bring.
We seriously laughed so hard we had tears rolling down our faces.
It was fun to spend a night out with my husband...we even danced! My feet were killing me because I choose to go with the super cool/high shoes instead of the comfy lower I didn't dance as much as I would have liked.
It was nice to spend time with my sisters...we have to do it more often. I will post more pictures later...I am beat tonight.
Later my friends

Pet Peeves

I have noticed that I am not the kind, patient person I once was, if I ever was! Things get on my nerves and I find I get peeved at the strangest things!
Here are some of my pet peeves today:
1. I get so angry at 4 way seems that no one understands the concept of he who was there first gets to go first! For crying out loud don't wave me through when you were first!!! It messes up the system. Seriously I want to follow them and give them a lesson on how 4 way stops work.
2. Pittsburgh lefts are illegal and dangerous and don't get mad at me when I go when the light is green!
3. Toenails that curve over the toe and make a clicking sound when they tap the ground need to be trimmed! (Or at least hide them in closed toe shoes!)
4. NO STARK WHITE SHOES AFTER LABOR DAY!!!!!!(off white and cream are OK) I have so many pet peeves when it comes to who wear sneakers with a suit, wheelies, flip flops at church, open toed shoes and the toes overflow and rest on the ground.
5. If I am kind enough to hold the door for you...a simple thank you is required!
6. While dining out with my family or friends I am totally not interested in strangers conversations so when they talk loud enough for everyone to hear I want to slip them a note asking them to use their inside voices...but I resist!
7. If I give you a taste of my food at a restaurant it is written you must at least offer to give me a taste of yours. This was the test for all guys I dated and Cory passed with flying colors!
8. It makes me crazy when people park on the "no parking" side of the if you have to go down the street you have to squeeze through, praying you don't scrape either car!
9. Gratuitous public displays of affections! Get a room!
10. Those people who think they are better than is just not true!

It took me about 3 minutes to come up with 10 pet peeves! I guess that means I am either in a bad mood or I have many more than 10. I am betting that I am just not the kindest person on the block today!
I have to learn to be more accepting or stop driving and eating out!
Shopping for shoes always puts me in a better mood! My sister is coming for a visit tomorrow and that is just about the coolest thing that could ever happen! I miss her so much...friends are great but sisters are way special. She will be here for about a week and we are heading up to Toronto for a wedding...yeah!!!
As soon as I see her face I will instantly be in the best mood ever...until tomorrow then.
