Today was spent getting ready for our trip to Washington.
That meant making a big pot of chili to use all the tomatoes from our garden and the ground turkey in the fridge. We'll freeze the leftovers to eat the night we get home.
It meant vacuuming and cleaning the bathrooms and kitchen so we can come home to a peaceful house at the end of our vacation.
It meant packing all but our toiletries and cell phone chargers. Our kitty Tessa really enjoyed the suitcases.
It meant laying out the outfits we'll travel in since we have to leave the house by 3 a.m. on Wednesday.
And it meant baking a dozen chocolate chip cookies just because the recipe looked good. My mister hasn't been in to try them yet. I'm looking forward to surprising him.
Now I'm going to enjoy a glass of my favorite red, and when the Mister is done mowing the lawn, we're going over to a friend's house to go swimming.

I spoke with the pastor at Saint Marks this morning. If we decide to, they will let us use their chapel to get married on Isle of Palms and our pastor can marry us. Even though we still haven't decided between Isle of Palms and Columbia, this makes me super-excited.
The restaurant we like doesn't open until 5 p.m., so it may be trickier to reach them to see what our options are, but I'll reach them eventually. Oh, a trip to Charleston for a tasting at one of my favorite restaurants? Darn. I hate the sacrifices we have to make for the wedding. (heavy on the sarcasm.)
