And We're Off!

John and I are heading out to my Family Reunion today. 3 full days of family fun.

There's going to be a wedding reception (although it won't be as cool as the last family wedding we attended. It was Final Fantasy themed).

There's not going to be a drop of booze in sight. My mother even reminded me of this fact which leads me to believe that my little brother once again sold me out. See if I ever share my secret beer stash with him again! Yes, we still do that to eachother even though were all getting a bit closer to 30 every year.

My mom did say we were allowed to go into town if we needed a hit from the bottle. Trust me, I already Googled the one and only bar in town.

Even though there won't be drinking we're going to do awesome stuff like the Family Olympics, which I've somehow been put in charge of. I had to remind my mom that while yes, I do hold the super awesome Hinchman Olympics every year, most of our games involve alcohol. We do things like the Beer Relay and Jello Shot Bingo. These make the "normal games" much more interesting. Guess I'll just have to make a bunch of adults play Chubby Bunnies.

We're also going to have a Family Talent Show. John and I have no idea what we're doing. He's suggested we come up with a song and even threw some lyrics at me the other day. I'm good at making up songs, but usally they're about the dogs. We'll see and I'll try to get video.

My mom has also warned reminded me that I am the ONLY cousin without kids. My little brother is the one that's lagging behind as he only has one. So yes, there's going to be 800 screaming children running around while my aunts all say (insert Southern accent here), "Now Faith Anne, why don't you have any babies?" I'm going to look around at those 800 screaming babies and think to myself, "That's why." Deflecting to my 40 year old and single brother no longer works either. I've been told by the aunts, "We've just given up on him." I expect to be asked about babies at least 30 times this weekend. At least. Maybe I'll keep a tally going. Anyone want to place bets on how many times my very southern family asks my why I have procreated yet? Any takers? I'll send you a cookie if you're right!

Should be an interesting weekend! Hope you all enjoy your three days off as well!

  1. Have fun! I can't wait to see what your talent is. Good luck fending off your aunts. My response is always, "We have two dogs...two dogs are good for us."
