The Wrap

What a weekend. There is so much that happened that I didn't go into detail about. I couldn't possibly mention all the little things that happened. We found out that the minister suffered a heart attack right after he left the reception. From what I understand he will be okay. It was only a minor attack. I'm sure he's going to be alright. He has to get better, he still has to sign the marriage certificate!

The outfit you ask? Well it turned out to be a smashing success. I was a little nervous about wearing the flip-flops. I brought a pair of dress shoes just in case but everybody loved the look! I got tons of compliments on the outfit. Everyone mentioned the flip-flops and how cool they were (Only Jill hated them, but Doug loved them so it all worked out). I was pretty pleased with myself.

We had such a great time. Stephanie's family was so nurturing and so supportive towards Erik and me. We met a lot of nice people and just had a really great time. I'm so proud of Steve and Stephanie. I wish them the absolute best in their new life together. Tomorrow they're off to Mexico for their honeymoon.

In the rest of the world it seems that nothing really happened this weekend. News of Rick James's death hadn't come out by the time I had to leave Friday so I just missed the story before the weekend began.

It's late and I think I'm going to read for a bit before I go to bed. Erik is wiped out and he has to work tomorrow. So that's it. We resume our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow morn.

It's A Done Deal

The first thing I remember about this morning was Erik waking me up by saying Happy Aniversary! Today is our 10 month aniversary. You may celebrate now.

We slept in as late as we could. Checkout was at noon and we were out right at 12. Jill and Doug quickly left for home (they had to drive all the way back to Rochester, NY). We tried to round up other people for lunch but they had already left for home! Matt, Ame, Tracey, Al, Adam ... everyone! Only Andy and Allyson were still in town. Erik and I ate and then went over to Stephanie's parents to watch them open the wedding gifts. It was such a nice family thing. Oh and by the way, the gifts that Erik and I gave (a poker table top and a 7-in-1 game set) were the coolest ones!

But it was time to let the Newlyweds get other stuff done and we had to drive home.

The first thing we did when we arrived was clean the house. Then we had a nice dinner and our weekend was over! Next up is Erik's birthday and then Matt and Ame's wedding. Oi!

I'll have a gossy post up soon. Dudes, Rick James died! Sucks!
