A Sister Moment

My husband and I were married on a beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  My sister is visiting right now and we were laughing about one of the funniest moments of the trip.  Our wedding rehearsal dinner was held at a Mexican restaurant in town.  We had two long tables full of friends and family.  Of course, there was a lot of drinking which excluded no one.  My uncles were buying me shots of tequila and after the third one my grandma cut me off.  She reminded me that I wanted to look beautiful the next day for all the photos.  This was fine by me since I was already buzzed.

When dinner was over, my friends and soon to be husband walked down the street to keep partying.  My sister and I caught a taxi back to our hotel.  As we walked into the hotel lobby, Heather looked into a mirror hanging on the wall and proclaimed, "Where did I get this hat from?!"  She was referring to the rather large sombrero on her head.  I was laughing even before I could answer "You took it off the wall at the restaurant."

I don't know where that sombrero ended up but it will always be one of my favorite memories from that week in Mexico.

The Andy Griffith Show

I find myself whistling the Andy Griffith Show theme song today.  Earlier today, July 3, 2012, it was announced that Andy Griffith passed away.  He was an big part of my tv upbringing.  My mom has always loved the Andy Griffith show.  I don't remember watching a lot of tv growing up.  One of the shows that was regularly on was the Andy Griffith Show.  Each episode began with the whistle song.  I remember it was a game to see if you could whistle the whole thing.

Andy, Opie, Aunt Bee, Barney Fife and the town of Mayberry will always be in my heart.  I will have to find some of the black and white episodes to show to my children.
