We go to the beach today
R has ZERO interest - we passed by the association's pool and that is what he wants to go in.
So we try for a little while ( I enjoy the water tremendously )
And then we go back and play in the pool and he is very pleased and approving
Later in the evening we go down to the Spanich Quarter and this is a lot of fun
We sleep so so in the night but it is a HUGE improvement over yesterday
The next morning is simply insane !!!
We are to meet with my classmate and are 30 minutes late - she is gracious about it but I feel HORRIBLE
Still love getting to see her and her ADORABLE daughter for a little bit and have lunch with her
And then we head off to Ponte Vedra for the wedding
For some reason my friend REALLY wants us all to have hair and make up done together at the SPA
Its a 129 dollars to do this but I sense its something important to her so we go ahead and do it
The lady doing my make up keeps showering on the compliments and we are all in a rush so I dont want her to feel bad so when she does the Ta- da and shows me how I look - its a shock
OMG I LOOK AWFUL
I go to the pool to get DH and R and they are having a BLAST - DH bursts out laughing when he sees me and cannot stop
I dont blame him as I look like a clown
I run back to the hotel room -
but DH must take a picture of my hideaous appearance- cheeks that have a life of their own - small beady eyes and thin lips - so here I am
My hair looks like a birds nest ( though the stylist assures me that I am SO HOLLYWOOD )
I would wash it if I could -but there is no time so I have to be content with a birds nest on my head
At least once I take the clown-make u off my face looks fine
and the sari is gorgeous.
I go and help the bride and the bridesmaids get dressed - they are all wearing eastern garb as the bride is Indian.
But she is as Western as they come and no one has any idea how to put on Indian Jewelery without breaking their hands or how to drape chunris
The wedding is marvelous - The groooms side - all are wonderful Minnesotans -seemingly stoic but so emotional and warm when you get to know them
