I brag because I care.
I might have a 2 birds-1 stone chance for my goals next year... visiting Cory in college and visiting the Texas relatives. Why?
Because my little brother got offered an athletic scholarship to University of Texas!
I'm so proud of him!! It's his top choice school, and the coach flew out from Texas to offer him the scholarship in person on July 1. It's kind of a big deal.
In other news, this was a wonderful wedding weekend, and completely personal! My ZTA little sister got married on Saturday! John and I missed the last turn going to the church and that was enough to get us there literally as Jenn walked down the aisle.* I was disappointed about that part, but they had a gorgeous ceremony and we had soooo much fun at the reception! The DJ was great (I got his card) and John and I sat at a table with all the ZTAs, woohoo Zeta table! I'm so happy for Jenn and Aaron, they are a fantastic couple.
On Sunday John and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary! We agreed to exchange gifts "in the spirit" of traditional anniversary gifts. For example, last year was our paper anniversary, so he framed a painting we got on our honeymoon and gave me an artificial replica of my bouquet (paper roses). I gave him some nice new art supplies. This year, he gave me Vera Bradley beach towels and an umbrella, and an Angry Bird, lol. I gave him a black sweater (it's always freezing in his new office) and a canvas of one of our favorite wedding portraits. See, in the spirit of cotton :) We went out to dinner at L'Auberge Chez Francois, which is sooo good. Soooo expensive but soooo good.
On a professional wedding note, I'm starting into the process of making a deal with another vendor... we're meeting to discuss later this month. I'm not going to give too much away now in case it doesn't pan out, but I'll give a hint... what's better than a Zeta as a wedding vendor? Two Zetas as wedding vendors! :)
*Just to show how you get tunnel vision the moment before you get married: I walked into the church vestibule as Jenn was about to walk down the aisle. There was definite eye contact. Fast forward to the reception:
Me: I'm so sorry we were late! We missed that last turn and had to add about 5 trying to find a way to turn around.
Jenn: Oh no!
Me: Yeah, I felt so terrible showing up as you were walking down the aisle.
Jenn: You got there as I was walking down the aisle?
Me: We made eye contact...
Well, it's easy to get over guilt when no one noticed lol.
