Off on our honeymoon...see you in a week!

Sunday, July 13, 2008


The wedding and all the parties are over, and it was incredible. We had the most amazing photographer. Here's how good she is...she was with us from 11:00 in the morning, until after 9:00 at night, then went back to her studio and posted a few pictures on her blog. She also wrote the nicest posting about her day. Check it out here.

Ring bearer pillow

I found a pattern online for a ring bearer's pillow with a really neat feature. I didn't want fake rings tied on the top, but I also didn't want our rings just tied on with ribbons.

See the three flowers on top? Look underneath...

The flowers hide a ring box, or in this case, a hinged box a necklace came in. I just lined it with leftover pink silk dupioni from the girls' dresses

I may have to change my avatar picture

I finally got my hair cut. I've been growing it out for over a year, and I haven't seen a hair stylist since March of last year. So, figuring that my mop of hair needs some help before the wedding, I got it cut. I found a great stylist, AND she offered to straighten my hair. I don't think she fully realized how much work it was, because my really curly hair doesn't like to be anything but curly. She got a really good tip, because she did an amazing job.

Now, of course, I want to have straight hair more often. I'll have to start at 5 a.m. to make it to work on time.

Just as a frame of reference, this is what I looked like on Valentine's Day, 2007. Ignore the double chin. That was also twenty-five pounds ago.

The Dress!

So, the dress is almost done. Which is good, since the wedding is next Saturday. I would have been done sooner, if I hadn't messed up and forgot to flip over the one back skirt piece. It's pretty hard to do anything with two left back pieces. So, a frantic fabric order was placed, and thankfully it arrived in time. I'm really happy with it, but I don't know if I would tackle such a huge project again.

Donnie has standing orders to thump me on the head if I do.
