mr.p and i went to a beautiful wedding ,
the son of our dear friends- paul and sue.
and when i say dear friends, i mean amazingly dear friends.
we lived with the coops for 1 month while our home was being built----the finishing touches that is.
the day we moved into the coops house with 2 young children, our third child decides to be born the next day :)
2 weeks early !
how many friends would put up with that craziness?
well since the wedding was so near and dear to us we decided to wear our sunday plus best.
for me that meant high heels. { starting to see the foolishness }.
how do women manage to wear these contraptions all day and walk in them?
i had to practice for a few minutes...
took them out for a spin on stairs, slippery flooring and a hill..{ the scariest }.
all that ran through my head was: how am i going to explain this at the hospital when they fix my broken ankles.
well disaster averted last night
but this morning my two great toes will not bend at their joints.
the joints are swollen and stiff !
using the tread mill this morning took a little bit more effort.

the quilt above is the wedding gift for ryan and alice.
yes i know it is not quilted yet---
my trademark is never to have a wedding quilt done at the time of the wedding.
not sure why, just the way these things always turn out.
oh, and that small tree growing up through the deck.....interesting i know.
not sure what mr. p's thoughts are on that situation ;)

Such a funny post Eileen. High heels are definitely designed by men (in my humble opinion) who don't have to wear them. The quilt is beautiful and I'm sure the Bride and groom will feel the love that went into it.
