A gathering of ideas, rants, reflections leading up to the big day

Thursday, February 7, 2008


My mom is coming. In a week. She will take this wedding into her hands and fix it. She will help me tie up all the crazy loose ends and make me feel like a normal person again. We have 3 full days and I believe we are booked for every second of those 3 days.
I am really looking forward to having her here with me in Tucson!
The itinerary:
8:00 am: wake up, hit ground running.
9:00 am: tour Z mansion
10:00 am: walk to potential ceremony sites and tour those options
12:00 lunch! and a chance for my mom to tell me how ridiculous I am being and to calm down. If I am lucky she'll use my full name.
1:00pm: Drive to some other ceremony locations, tour those sites.
3:00pm: nap
4:00pm: work out
5:30pm: drink wine and laugh together
7:30pm: Dinner with Darrell at Cafe Poca Cosa
10:00pm: Roll into bed
8:00am: wake up, hit ground running.
9:00am: head to Maya Palace to pick up my dress (eek!) and hopefully try it on for my mom to see.
10:00am: shop for accessories and for mom
12:00: Hopefully lunch with Tootsies, drop off my dress to be stored.
1:30pm: Either go back out shopping for clothes or shopping for ceremony locations
3:00pm: Swing by stationary store to look at invitiation options, specifically wording.
5:00pm: nap
6:15pm: wine
7:00pm: Dinner (TBD)
10:00: Roll into bed.
6:00am: my run, mom may join as a walker
10:00am: visit bakeries.
12:00: Tubac or more shopping or decision making
7:00pm: Dinner (TBD)
8:00am: breakfast
10:00am: Drop mom at the airport.
12:00: nap to recover!

Yay for Mom being in town!! I hope she'll join us Saturday morning, although I vaguely recall you saying she said "forget it" when she found out what time it was at. :)

Nothing like a Mom. What a great time you will have next week. Yes, I am hoping for a Friday tootsie lunch and a dropoff to the storage room if you have the time...the welcome sign will be there for whenever you want it. If you are looking for Friday night ideas (beyond a homey dinner) would Mom enjoy flamenco at Casa Vicente or maybe just a fun bar scene at The Cup/stroll on Congress or 4th?

Thanks for the ideas Monica! One night will be dinner in, but those are good thoughts! Wonder does Casa Vicente have flamenco on Saturday nights?
