As you know my little brother is getting married in June. His fiance never directly asked me to be a bridesmaid, however she bought me and her sisters all the same dress to wear (so I guess that makes us bridesmaids, right?) Anyway, so we're all wearing matching dresses, the moms have their pretty dresses, and my brother rented tuxedos for the dads, my brothers, and her brother to wear. However, they didn't get a tux for Andrew to wear, which I thought was odd. If everyone in our family is dressing formally and in matching attire, shouldn't he wear a tux too? Yes, he's an in-law (the only one so far), but he'll be in the family pictures.
So, here's my question- when you got married or when your siblings got married, did you have your brother and/or sister in-laws wear a bridesmaid outfit or a tux (or matching attire) to match the rest of the family?
Maybe I'm just a little bias, cause I like how my man looks in a tux!

Me: I should probably take some of this before we go to bed right?
A: You'll probably sleep better if you do.
Me: (hesitating before I consume what is known to be the most disgusting, foul taste on the planet)
A: You're so funny
Me: Why am I so funny?
A: You always plug your nose and scrunch your face up as you drink that.
Me: Because it's awful! I don't know anyone on this planet who likes the taste of cough medicine!
A: Uh, you're married to one.
Me: You're kidding me.
A: Nope, I really like how it taste.
If I'd known that before we were married, it might have hindered my decision to marry him! Not really, but seriously, who likes the taste of cough medicine? Gross

Ever since I was little, I've had vivid dreams. I always remember them when I wake up. I don't just remember little bits and pieces, I remember everything, and I usually don't forget. I don't know why I dream, but every night it's different. Sometimes they are pleasant dreams, in which I'm doing something fairly normal (relaxing at the beach, hiking through the woods, etc). Sometimes they're very weird. I've had dreams where I've talked to animals- not just talking, but discussing or explaining how to do a human task, such as why you should prepare your taxes before April 15, or how to drive a stick shift car. Weird. I also have reoccurring dreams. When I was little, I used to dream all the time that I was in a huge warehouse with a bunch of unmarked crates, stacked high to the ceiling. In my dream I was being chased by something- I couldn't see it or hear it, I just knew it was after me. I would hide in between the crates, until I saw it's shadow getting close, and then I'd run and hide again. I always woke up right before it grabbed me. I haven't had that dream in a long time, but ever since I got married, I've had vivid dreams. So vivid that when I wake up, I almost feel like I didn't sleep. I feel rejuvenated, but I feel like when I go to sleep I lay down, close my eyes, and then start watching a movie with me in it, and then my alarm goes off and I'm up. I don't feel like I've had relaxing or normal sleep. I think my lack of relaxing sleep is why I had the dream I did last night.

Oh, the days of Donkey Kong and Super Mario Brothers!
Play DohIt's Play-Doh...enough said!
And last, but not least, my favorite toy ever...
Calico CrittersBack in the day these were called Sylvanian Families (yes, you can see why they changed the name!). They were a collection of miniature animals, dressed in clothes, and came with little houses and furniture.
So there you have it- a blast into my past! Now I want to hear from you! What were your favorite childhood toys? Cartoons? Post about it on your blog and share!
