Finally! The wedding was amazing. D is truly so special, and the days leading up to our wedding, (despite his obscene packing) were so fun. A bridesmaid had a genius idea, and carried with her at all times a little cooler with mini-wine coolers, so I was on a steady drink iv for three days.
Even with a huge contigient of people, I had a ton of time to spend with people between Friday night’s Shabbat dinner, Saturday’s Out-Of-Towner dinner, and the wedding itself. Additionally, D and I skipped favors in lieu of hosting a “hosipitality suite” (deemed the “Celeb Suite”) which was fully stocked with alcohol and sweets for the whole weekend. It was insane.
After the wedding, we went to Maui for 9 days. My two best guy friends gave us backstage tickets to John Legend, (one of my favoritest singers)…AMAZING! I got pretty sunburned but it was a fabulous trip.
My mind is pretty scattered, so I am sure more will come out over the next few days. I did grow up a little, when a day before the wedding, my dad EMAILED (from 3 miles away) to say that my stepmom wasn’t coming to the wedding or any of the other events because, (and I quote) “she doesn’t like you”. I could care less, except that since my brother already didn’t come as his wife was 8 months pregnant (another story for another time), and I hated the fact that it looked like I was abandoned by my entire family. But instead of crying, I said to him, “Well, if she is going to be a classless bi$ch, so am I. She owes me $200 for all of the meals she is too rude to show up for.” I doubt I will get a check, but at least I made my feelings known.
How is everyone? I missed you all! 🙂
