Bridal Shower

My bridal shower was last weekend and it turned out perfect. My mom and sisters held it at the restaurant my mom is a manager at (and where I worked many years ago!). It was on the smaller side, just family and close friends, which I loved. Everyone was very generous to us and I had a really good time spending the afternoon with everyone. In addition, one of my best friends came in from Chicago, so my friends and I spent Saturday having lunch and coffee and to catch up on a lot. Now, I just need to get through the thank-you notes!

Cigar Bar

Well, Jim finally gets something at the wedding that's entirely his. :) A while back he had mentioned that he'd like a cigar bar at the reception. The best cigars he's ever had was while we were on vacation in the Dominican. So, I contacted the restaurant where we're having the reception and asked about having a cigar bar. Apparently, it's very common, but we'll be having someone doing a demonstration and hand rolling cigars for each of the guests. It would have been nice to surprise Jim with this, but I have problems keeping surprises from him anyway!

I Can't Believe

the wedding is in 50 days! Typing that actually causes me a little anxiety! I didn't get quite as much done over Christmas break as I was hoping. But for whatever reason, my work is requiring everyone to use one week of vacation during the first two weeks of the year. As much as I don't like the idea, I'll look at it as a blessing in disguise and try to get as much done for the wedding as possible with the days I have off this week and next. So, off to the gym and then some shopping later on today!
