Planning her Wedding...

Mark this day! My eldest daughter and I had our first conversation regarding her wedding!

Up until today, she's only cried at the thought of getting married - you see, she only wanted to marry her Daddy and live with us, so it was a very traumatic idea marrying someone she doesn't know and moving away. I solved that one by telling her she could still live with us. She amended that her husband would live with his Mommy and Daddy too. Too funny!

Today, she asked me if I would go with her to her wedding. "Of course," I replied. I even told her that I would help her plan and pay for it! (Don't tell Russ.) Robynn asked if I would drive her to the event, and I told her that I wouldn't, but that I'd pay for a special vehicle to take us there. "Like a Princess - I'll even pay for a carriage and horses if you'd like." My mistake.

Now comes the fun part - and probably expensive...

Robynn asked for a purple, pink, red, and white carriage with sparkles. And the horses have to be white, but with pink feathers on their heads and we have to dye their tales to match the carriage. Don't forget the sparkles!

"Hmmm," I replied, "You can always change your mind."

"No!"Robynn exclaimed. "I don't want to change my mind! I want to have a pink, purple, red, and white carriage with sparkles and matching horses."

Well, they always say that the bride and her mother have to disagree about somethings... I'll let you know when the date is.

We will await the invitation...
Assuming, of course, that it will have sparkles and the envelope will be dyed to match the horses' tails!!!

Oh my, sounds very extravagant (that's a fancy word for expensive)!
