So, I’ve uploaded a ton (literally. I weighed them first.) of photos to flickr from the honeymoon as well as the wedding weekend. If you have photos from the wedding weekend – please at them to our group. I would love to see them all in one place!

See how productive I can be on Percocet! I should be on Percocet allllll the time! Also notice that I FINALLY fixed the lil retro side bars and updated the links and such. I know. Many of you would have been REALLY happy if I had done that before the wedding so you would have had a clue as to what was going on and where.



We’re Back!

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

Here’s a short video we took in the Kerala backwaters in southern India. We had a big huge house boat, a navigator, a personal chef and a service person. All to ourselves. We woke up. We ate. We watched the water go by. We watched the people who live on the water. We ate more. Then ate more. Then… more. Then went to bed and did it all over again. It was AMAZING. We got off the boat twice in 48 hours. Once to see an 800 year old church – the other time to get a massage. Unless you ask Scott, then you would replace the word massage with “to get beaten up in the dark. With oil.”

I so lied.

There’s always room time for Disney! We are also registered at Disney’s Wedding Registry. I think we have to wait for something to be mailed to us to complete the registration and since I’m still waiting for the Disney Honeymoon CD I asked for like a month ago I have no idea how long it will take to arrive.

But the point is! I have set it in motion. My mommy will be proud!

We Are Registered

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

We have finally registered at Macy’s. We plan on registering someplace else as well, but we have no idea when we will have time. When we first set our date, people were all like;

March? ’08? Like? This year??

And we were all like;

Yes March ’08. This year. How long you think it takes to plan a wedding??

We now understand that year long engagement. This makes me freak out a bit.

But I look at it and smile!

In other news, you know how in the movies when a couple registers, they get a gun to run around the store shooting what they want? We ended up with something that was a cross between a taser and a blackberry. Not nearly as fun. But still fun enough that I recommend everyone go do it at least once! Even if you’re not getting married!

How do you like our new look?

Thanks to Posh Betty, the women who designed our wedding invites (which will be in the mail soon, I pinky swear) for giving me the graphics so that our web site will match our wedding invites!

I know! Those are some Fancy Pants!

So, here are some more FAQ:

Where are you guys registered? Um, yeah, we aren’t yet. We were planning on doing it this weekend, but we decided to be sick instead.

Why you guys wanna be sick so often? We don’t. It’s just an excuse to snuggle on the couch with the dog and exchange bodily fluids. Unfortunately that fluid is snot.

What is the theme of the wedding? Theme? Weddings have a theme? Isn’t the fact that we are finally getting married a fantastical enough theme? We need to have MORE of a theme?? Dress pretty, show up on time, and don’t drink so much of the free booze that you barf on the bride, give a twenty minute speech or other wise cause a scene. Hows that for a theme?

Wait? March of THIS year? Yes. This year. I’m begining to understand how crazy an idea this is, but luckily have found a wonderful women in Florida who is helping me… and feeding all of you. She’s helping me organize all the table rental, bartender, linen crappity that I didn’t even know needed to be organized. She has also promised the our servers will be good looking. Excccellent! I’ll post the menu here soon so you know what your signing up for when you check “steak,” chicken,” or “fish.” Ah yes, the wonders of the internets.

The Rings Have Arrived!

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

The Rings Have Arrived!!

Woot! Pictures soon. My engagement ring is a giant sparkling amazing … thing! A 1.1 carat cushion cut diamond with two princess cut diamonds on either side. Scott’s wedding ring is one of the first mens rings I’ve ever seen that I really loved. It’s not just a plain band, yet, not gaudy either. It’s very simple with a laser cut line around it and a princess cut diamond – to match mine.

Speaking of pictures – take note of the new links on the side of the page. Feel free to leave comments as long as they aren’t about my unfortunate hairstyles.

An Engagement in the Blue Room

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

Well hello again! Since we’ve last spoke/txt/emailed/blogged/cast or however WE communicate these days, there have been Happy Hours from one end of the United States to the other. In case you ARE ever in Hanalei, Hawaii, the Hanalei house serves a mean Weki Tai. In Leesburg, Florida, I passed over the ice bucket filled with Coors Light and stuck to the Wings at Ramshackles. Oh. My. God. Is that what all the Wings arguments have been about? Argue On! Especially if that means your mouth is too busy to eat and I am left with all the wings… glorious wings… but I digress. Also, the next time you are at Disney World, stop by the 50s Prime Time Cafe in the MGM park for a basil strawberry spiked lemonade, and a mean Hendrick’s martini. Yum!

But now, we are home sweet home in the Blue Room – with lots to celebrate! First, we are home from vacation! Woot! That is reason enough to celebrate, but wait, there’s more! I got a new Tinker Bell Christmas Tree topper! And still more! Ringo is housebroken! That was put to the test this morning when our jet lagged butts went to bed at 6pm last night and didn’t get up till 6am this morning and woke to find him pacing and about ready to explode in front of the door!

There are also all sorts of other things to celebrate, too many to write down really, and no one likes long winded emails so why don’t you just stop by The Blue Room tomorrow (Friday the 30th) about 6:30 or so and we can discuss it in a civilized style over a cocktail or three. If you are already otherwise ENGAGED tomorrow evening, perhaps we can get together to celebrate these events some other time…

Please RSVP so we know how many seats to save! Although the Blue Room is always well-stocked, feel free to bring your favorite beverage to imbibe…. Let me know if you need the address or secret handshake.
