Doggies to be met and cooed over: 2

Dance we will learn on Friday night with my mom: 2 Step (nightclub variety)

Size of sample dress in store I plan to try on so my mom can see why I like it so much: 16 (I will probably wear, um, a significantly smaller size than that, but they only have it in a 16)

Pages of document compiled by both Dan and myself including names, addresses, times, phone numbers, and directions to places where we will be having meetings/trying things on/eating meals: 4

Caterer meetings scheduled: 3, all on Friday before 2 PM

Old friends we will be seeing for the first time in many years: one, who unexpectedly emailed me a month ago to say he lives in the city now (we're having the Ethiopian with him on Sunday before we fly home)
