A few pictures from the wedding

People keep asking for these, so here is one from the reception and a few from the temple that Painter Extraodinaire and Genius Child #3 took for us.

What a wonderful world

The wedding was, in a word, exquisite. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. The temple was wonderful. The weather cooperated perfectly. The reception went off without any major problems or meltdowns.

Things to be most thankful for:
  • WonderMom-o-7, Crazy Theatre Chick, and the whole kitchen gang. WonderMom-o-7's husband, Man of Faith, and oldest daughter, Cutie Patutie, were completely amazing. Everyone can't stop talking about the food...still. More than a week later, we are still hearing about how amazing the food was...and it truly was amazing.
  • (I know I've used that word at least three times in this bullet point, but I don't care. It is the perfect word to describe the most amazing food.)
  • Flowers. The flowers were gorgeous: the bouquet, the boutonnieres and corsages, the girls' stems, my hair. And the cake.
  • Wholly cow, the cake. How about that cake? Big Sis more than outdid herself on the cake. It looked stunning and tasted even better than it looked.
  • The Music Makers (this is really the name of the band; no blog name for them because they deserve the publicity). People danced, they spooned, they just enjoyed the sound. Many, many compliments on the music; all highly deserved. Thanks to Gordon and the Gang!
  • To Brian Koka at A Moment Captured Photography. We love our pictures. Thank you!
  • Something Borrowed is the most amazing company. Call them. Use them. You will not be disappointed.
  • There is no way we could adequately thank our family and friends who made the whole day run smoothly. All we can do is say "Thank you! We love you all!".

Groundhog Day and other random things

Happy Groundhog Day!

It's the final countdown for the preparations for the wedding. Today I'm hoping to start "Thank You" cards for the shower gifts. I also need to go to a couple of music stores, but only one of those is for the wedding. It's very strange. I know that there is a ton of stuff to do, but it's hard to get a handle on where to start.

I think I'll go over to the clubhouse and exercise and then come back and shower. Showering is good. Or soak in a nice, warm bath. That sounds heavenly. Then I can head out to the stores and really get going. But exercise first. It's been a while since I've had time, so it will be nice to get back to it.


Happy ready, my little pupils.
