Today was an incredibly exciting day, but it didn't start off that way. First off when I went downstairs for breakfast, I found out that Chester, the cat with an Iron stomach, had gotten into the cupcakes. The little bugger damaged FIVE of them! Two of them, he ate about half, so overnight the cat had more than a cupcake, the hairy jerk. Luckily he didn't seem to be suffering from any ill effects today, but he still shouldn't be eating any. He had only picked at one plate, which was the spare cupcake plate, so I still had enough. But then when I was getting all the stuff picked up to go to my sister's, I found out another pest had picked over the other plate. My brother had eaten several of those cupcakes, even though I TOLD him not to. Luckily there were enough unpicked cupcakes to bring a full plate. I also brought along the frosting that I had made, which was untouched.
The party itself went fine, was pretty low key. We watched a basketball game, followed by a repeat of "Project Runway", all in all kind of boring. We had talked about going to the Museum of Art, but decided against it because we had to call it an early night, my brother had a lot of homework for tomorrow. We had forgotten to mention it to my sister, so we accidentally sprung it on her. She then sprung something on us... she's getting married!
It was an absolute shock to all of us, we knew that she was in a serious relationship with her boyfriend, but they didn't seem in that much of a rush to get it official. But apparently they are. They haven't been planning for very long, but they're planning to get married in November, the 11th, up in Connecticut. She also said that she wanted me to be her male bridesmaid. (Is there an official term for that?) That was a bit shocking because I really don't think that she likes me that much to make me a part of her wedding. I was shocked to find out I was invited in the first place. So, originally we were going to leave at four, but after that announcement we were talking for several more hours. She had a notebook with ideas and thoughts. Right now she wants the color red to be featured a lot, and with hearts and ribbons. She asking for my help with it (am I really ready for something like this?), but I'm not really thinking about it now. Right now it's up to her to refine her thoughts and ideas to find out what she wants, after then I'll be more willing (and able) to help. But it's so weird, such a small change, but still so different. I'm sure the next few months are going to be a bit different, I've never been a part of a wedding before (even such a small one as this one's going to be)!
