Bridal Shower

This weekend I was lucky enough to have a Bridal Shower thrown by my future mother in law and attended by my fantastic girlfriends. It was a wonderful day and while I'm not used to having all eyes on me, they were all loving eyes and I felt so blessed to have such great friends in my life, both new and old. Here's some photos...

My wonderful future mother-in-law! Thank you for the party!

Wedding Song Part 2

When Mircea and I get married in St Lucia, Sandals does a mini reception right after our super short ceremony and they asked me if I wanted to pick a wedding song. Wow, that's a lot of pressure. I love the song that Ellen and Portia did for their wedding (which would be extra cute since Mircea and I were E & P for Halloween) but I LOVE U2 and I really wanted to use a U2 song that I could get extra excited about every time I heard it played. And we'll still use the other song for the reception too, but there will be no dancing, just pictures. I need to shout-out to my friend Nikki for the suggestion. I knew she would know the perfect U2 song to use as she's an even bigger fan than I am.

The video isn't the greatest, but I wanted to post something about the song because I'm really excited about using it-it seems more "us" than the other song did. Plus, Bono dedicated it to his wife in the video, and that's just cool.

The "Joy" of Invitations

I started working on the invitations this evening, and frankly, I thought my blood pressure would go through the roof. I typed out the addresses to be merged onto the labels THREE times...on two different computers. By the time I finally got the labels working I looked at the labels I'd purchased and realized that they were for laser printers. Well isn't that fancy? I jammed them into my inkjet printer, hoping that God was maybe looking down on me and knew that I needed them to work. He wasn't. They smeared all over the place and I felt myself slowly dying inside. So I won't get the labels until at least tomorrow (I'm making a special trip to the office to print them) which means I couldn't really start most of the invitations. Mircea decided that he wanted to hand deliver the invitations to his co-workers and friends so I addressed those. After about two invitations I realized that I didn't know the names of any of his co-workers' wives...and neither did he. Mircea might have the world's worst memory, but let me just say-that is embarassing. One of the invitations says "Steve & Lovely Wife". No, I'm not kidding. Yes, I'm leaving it that way. And yes, I'm sorry.
