Flower Girl Fatigue :-)

We are those crazy Californian's that woke up at 3:00 a.m. to watch
The Royal Wedding. That's the time it started here on the west coast.
I must admit I didn't stay awake long enough to see "The Kiss". 
I'm thinking this sweet photo will follow this little girl the rest of her life though :-)
When I was a little girl, I was a flower girl in a wedding.
At the reception, a man came up to me and told me I'd stolen the show.
 I didn't understand what he meant at the time,
and went crying to my mom, thinking I'd ruined the wedding.
I couldn't help but think of this when I saw this photo.
Isn't she precious?

We're having a yard sale tomorrow with several other families
on our block. It's nice to clear out the clutter,
but I realize that many have lost so much this week.
Please be praying for them.

*Jordan Update* Jordan is to be transported to Balboa Naval Medical Center here in
California this weekend. I'll let you know when I get a new address for him.
We're thrilled that he'll be closer to home.
 Blessings to all of you,

  1. Those yard sales are great - less stuff around - good news about Jordan.

  2. thanks for keeping us updated on Jordan :-) Looks like you have some great posts on here!! Cute Royal family girl.... we all feel that way at long ceremonies ;-)

  3. oh, also HAHAHA about stealing that show!!

  4. I guess we were many more crazy people that watched the royal wedding and weeped! :-)

    How wonderful that Joran is going to California this weekend! I'll await a new address then for a get well card!

    Have a lovely weekend Y'all!

    Hugs Cathrine :-)

  5. Oh she is so so sweet girl !! i lovvvveeeed !!! the wedding......happy

  6. Although I had no plans to watch the wedding, hubby turned the tv on just after 1 pm our time and it had just started and was on every single channel so couldn't get away from it. I thought it was lovely that they kept it simple and elegant and don't understand why there are those who think they have the right to judge a wedding that has absolutely nothing to do with them. Good luck with your yard sale. Best wishes, Tammy

  7. I watched too:) That sweet little one was too cute!

    Enjoy your weekend and the yard sale!

    Happy to hear that Jordan is coming closer to you:)

    Big hugs and continued prayers!

  8. Isn't that photo hysterical? She looked tired AND grumpy- poor little thing!

    Make sure you give us Jordan's new addy. I would love to do a follow up card/note to him. Maybe we could do another card blitz come Father's Day? Hugs- Diana

  9. I also woke up early (3:00) to watch the wedding. Enjoyed it so much. Kate was beautiful in her gown. That little girl will probably be interviewed when Will & Kate's daughter or son gets married in about 25 years.
    Good luck with the garage sale. . .

  11. That little girl IS cute, Marcia!

    So glad to hear Jordan will be closer to you. I'm glad he has gotten so many cards.♥

    Hope your yard sale goes great!

  12. That is a cute picture. I missed the whole thing. I guess that happens a lot when you don't have a tv. I do remember watching his parents' wedding moons ago.

  13. I am so glad about Jordan. That is such good news. Yes the little girl at the wedding was darling. We cracked up.

  14. Such a wonderful post!! My husband and I got up at 4 am, and stayed up the rest of the day! We watched from start to was important to us to watch history in the making!

    I was a flower girl once, at my aunt's wedding. I didn't drop a petal. I liked the way the colors looked in the basket!!

    Continuing prayers for Jordan. I am so glad he will be closer to all of you.

    Take Care and have fun cleaning out the house!


  15. I laughed when I saw this little girl real and so cute as all children are, thanks to them for keeping it real! LOL

  16. LOL that picture is priceless. I'm glad to hear the good news about Jordan.

  17. That cute little girl did provide one of my favorite moments...

    And I, too, am praying for those in the South who were affected by the tornadoes.

    Still praying for Jordan, too!


  18. think that your little heart was crushed by that compliment when you were so young. We never know for sure what kids hear when we speak. We have some funny stories too.

    The royal wedding was so pretty.
    I enjoyed watching the coverage of it.

  19. I watched it too but at 10:00 AM on BBC America. They replayed it all morning. It was wonderful!

    I noticed that little flower girl too! I thought she was so cute. :0)

  20. Beeing half english, off course I had to see the WEDDING of the year.
    I loved her "Grace Kelly" dress, it was beatiful.

    Good luck with the "sale" - and happy for the family of Jordan, getting him closer home;)

    Take care - ciao from Italy

  21. I was up watching the royal wedding too but, of course, on the East Coast I got to sleep a bit longer than you did! Good luck with your yard sale ... they are great clutter-clearer-outers! So glad Jordan is closer to you now.

  22. Up at 5:30 here and really enjoyed watching. So glad that Jordan will be in California. Continuing prayers for his recovery and all of your family.

  23. Marcia!
    So happy to hear Jordan will be in California! I will relate this news to my prayer group. Praise the Lord!
    I didn't get up to watch the wedding, but I did catch it just intime to see Kates lovely dress! I love her dress!
    Oh I hope your yard sale is a success! I love having yard sales! It's so liberating to declutter!
    Have a great week Marcia!

  24. My cousin stole the show at my aunt's wedding when he was a little boy. He was the ring bearer and the entire wedding he made faces and kept pulling his bowtie out and letting it snap back. I am sure my aunt was puzzled about all the chuckles until she found out later what he was doing.

    Hugs from Holland ~

  25. She was a-do-r-a-b-l-e! I thoroughly enjoyed the wedding.

    Yay for Jordan!

  26. So glad to hear that Jordan is moving closer to home. It'll help lower the stress level I'm sure. I was a flower girl when I was a little girl too. Don't remember it too much but I've got some pictures. I DVR'd the wedding and watched it at a decent hour. Your pretty picture of the aprons is wonderful. Mimi

  27. Oh my! I didn't get up at 3:00, but watched all that I could the next morning. I thought it was so romantic and beautiful. Love that little girls look.
    Glad to hear Jordan is doing well enought to be moved closer to home. Even though I haven't commented, I have been keeping up on your posts and continue to pray. Loved the pictures of him and his boy.

  28. ADORABLE picture ...but better is the news!

  29. That's too sweet about you crying when you were little. It is a funny phrase to use, isn't it?!

    I love the photo of thtat bridesmaid. What a sweetie!


  30. It's so funny how we interpret words differently when we are young!

    Great story and pictures from the royal wedding!

  31. I taped the wedding and watched part of it later...Loved the wee little flower girls and sweet! Good news about Jordan...all the troops are in our daily next door neighbor ships out this week...she is a single Mom...her parents (who are the actual neighbors) have the kids. I sure hope we can bring our troops home soon.

  32. Oh my goodness what an adorable picture! I would say that she has had enough. :) Good luck with the sale and I am so glad that Jordan is going to California!
    Blessings to you my friend!

  33. Great news about Jordan! I enjoyed your flower girl story! too funny!

  34. Oh need to have a yard sale also...and thanks for the update on Jordan...he and all of you have been in my prayers.
    Oh my flower girls had to set with their moms after they walked down, because I was afraid they would steal the show...LOL

  35. Hi Marcia,
    I loved the wedding, it was so beautiful! I thought the little ones did a great job, and you are right this little one was just tired and the photo will follow her the rest of her life.
    Wonderful news about Jordan, he must be healing enough to travel, isn't Balboa Naval Medical Center in San Diego. I will keep him in my prayers as always. My nephew is stationed in San Diego and is getting ready for his 4th deployment with the Marines.
    Have a sweet day and big hugs, Elizabeth

  36. hi marcia
    great news about jordan.
    lovely story!

  37. I enjoyed the wedding, though I watched a replay on BBC America. :) That little girl is so adorable! I'm sure it was a big day for such a little one.

    I hope your yard sale went well! :)

  38. What a great photo! And I loved reading about your childhood flower girl memories...:) Too cute!!

    Blessings to you, dear friend!
