Greetings from Lexington! We are all settled into our hotel and exhausted. Just in case you are wondering, it only took us 20 hours to drive here. Only 20 hours. I begged Dick last night to please let's sell the car and get a plane ticket home on Sunday. I have not given up hope that he will change his mind. Yet.....

Lexington is a beautiful city. We are on the 16th floor looking out over a park and the building where the Kentucky Wildcats play basketball. There are fountains in the park that are going all night long. Around 2 this morning, there were people playing in the fountains. I would have been down there with them if it had only taken us 19 hours to get here, but 20 hours was just too much.....

Tomorrow, there is a tea given in Lesley's honor. We are all excited about that. Julianne and I need to go get a pedicure and manicure so we don't embarrass the Jackson side of the family. I have been saving up for a pedicure.....not money.....dead skin...... Dick will fly in around lunch time and for dinner we will be going to John and Linda Lancaster's to eat with them at their house. That will be so nice to have some informal before the formal.

Jamie and Lesley came to the hotel about 11 last night. They were so cute! Both of them were so excited and Jamie just couldn't stop smiling and laughing. It makes me feel good that they are happy.

The masses start arriving on Thursday. I can't wait! We are going to have so much fun! Thursday night is a lingerie shower for Lesley here at the hotel on our floor. That should be great.

Friday will be the Bridesmaid Luncheon, the Groomsmen Luncheon, the rehearsal and the Rehearsal Dinner. It should be a day of fun and laughs. And of course you know what comes on Saturday. Right now, the forecast is for the low 80's. That sounds really good to me!

I will be updating over the next few days....Tootles!
