Crazy Train

I am in the throes of bridal shower planning for my Truest, Bluest girl, Sarah.

Doesn't she bear a striking resemblance to Ozzy?

We sure thought so.

I emailed her nearly 20 minutes ago to get her approval for sharing this picture but she didn't respond, so I'm just taking that as an "Absolutely!"

(SO glad she didn't respond. This funny is begging to be shared.)

I've been baking and taping and tying and commiserating and double-checking all day long and I love it. There is nothing better than the feeling that you just might rock the socks off of your swooniest friend.

  2. She won't care at ALL that you posted a picture of her, maybe not her favorite, and compared her to Ozzie. I know that she will love it! I guess that's what friends are for... :)

    Have a wonderful time,
    Joyce

  4. Truly... Ozzy.. Hey Farmgirl, when are you going to follow my blog? I have a very small following. I need some follow love. How did you get such a following?

  6. Hope your bridal shower is as much fun as the baby shower we had last weekend for grand baby Ezra. We did a brunch and had tons of food family, and friends capped off by lots of baby snuggling and tons of laughter. Your Friday sounds busy like mine was last week. Have a blast and remind your friend that you have the right to use that pix cuz you are cooking up a special day for her...small price to pay : )

  9. I seriously just laughed outloud! I'd kill you, but I'd do it to my bestie in a heartbeat and then we'd laugh about it! Have a great time at the shower :)

  12. Um, you couldn't wait 15 minutes for me to request approval? :) I'm secretly happy its not just us that thinks I do resemble Ozzy. Maybe I could market myself as an impersonator? Can you believe I am still up? I'm a bundle of nerves right now, so anxious. I hope I don't cry. Wouldn't that be true to form? Ha! And yes to all your followers, I know I am blessed! I knew what I was doing in that church parking lot nearly twenty years ago! Xoxo

    ps So, I'm on my third cough drop and I click on the link thinking I'm going to Becky's blog (FGP, not FPFG) and I'm reading...and then I get to "swooniest.." and I'm thinking..."That's funny...that's such a Shannan thing to say." Yeah, have another cough drop, Julie. : p Oh, and when my daddy was going through chemo and radiation and he was all cute and slurry and wobbly (he was a joy...a true wit)...he totally reminded me of Ozzie. I think it was probably about the time that the first Osbournes show was on TV.

  22. It WAS the swooniest of showers! Did not disappoint in the least! Actually, set the bar remarkably high for the wedding. I don't know if we can top what you girls put together for me! Seriously! I can't wait to see the pics! Ah the swooniest of day. And you are the swooniest, my friend. Not me. You have cornered that market. xo

  24. Simply gorgeous! I love the scrabble tiles as food signs. Genius!
    I thought of you today as I was on abc.com looking at the bios for the bachelors on the upcoming season of the bachelorette. The second guy (and second Chris) was wearing a periodic table of elements t-shirt. Ha!
    Happy Monday to you!
