Mystery Wedding Gift – Reward Offered!

September 30, 2008

Mystery Wedding Gift Found!

Where – The Cottage, The Sundy House
When – Wedding Night (Saturday 13 September 2008)
What – Calphalon Tri Ply Stainless 2 1/2-Quart Covered Shallow Saucepan

Reward Offered – Awesome Thank You Note!!

My sweetie…my husband…is back from a long stint on a shoot out in the middle of nowhere in Massachusetts and we’re having a hard time with some of our thank you notes.

You see, when the staff at the Sundy House put all the cards and gifts in the honeymoon cottage where we stayed that night, they separated everything. All the packages/gifts in one area and all the cards in the basket. They even took cards that were taped or attached to packages and put them into the basket.

We’ve figured out some of them, but need your help with others.

We got a Calphalon Tri Ply Stainless 2 1/2-Quart Covered Shallow Saucepan. It was inside a gift bag with no card or anything.
We really like it and would love to give you a proper thank you, so if it came from you, or you know who gave it to us, please let us know!

Thanks so much!

Please Don’t Take My Kodachrome Away…

September 26, 2008

I saw an article online the other day about how Kodak’s Kodachrome film is on its way out. If you’re part of the “digital revolution” — ask my sweetie about this in more detail if you want — you are probably already aware that this has been true for some time.

In fact, I thought that Kodachrome was already gone.

Anyway, this article reminded me of one of my favorite moments at our wedding reception, which will be two weeks ago tomorrow. Near the end of the evening, some of my best friends and I were dancing in a group to Paul Simon’s Kodachrome.

It’s one of our favorite songs.

Listen to it here. (I would have embedded it, but it wasn’t working out.)

We Did It!

September 14, 2008

Just wanted to let everyone know that we did it!  We got married last night.  The weather cooperated, yay!  We’ll send you all updates as we regain momentum back into the daily grind. 

Wanted to send out a quick thanks to everyone who shared our special day either in person or remotely!

We’re Leavin On a Jet Plane…

September 9, 2008

But we know when we’ll be back again.

Tomorrow we head down to Florida for our last few days of singledom. This week everyone kept telling me things like, “Hey, it’s your last Monday of ever being single!” or “Hey, it’s the last meal you’ll ever make as a fiance!”

We hop on a flight, my sweetie, Donna, and I, and get into South Florida early evening. We’ll be meeting my sister and Melissa at my parents’ house.

First stop is either the cell phone store (I dropped mine and it cracked, so it won’t work properly) or my Papa and Nana‘s house to check on the dress!

See you all in a couple of days! 4 to be exact.

We need a favor…does anyone have a copy of the soundtrack for Kill Bill that has the movie’s theme by the RZA? Or perhaps another CD?

We tried to locate it and it doesn’t appear to be in iTunes or on the actual soundtrack.

If you can help, please let us know.

One Week To Go!

I always thought that it was a June bride that was the most common. However,14% of weddings take place in September, the most popular month for weddings (

See you ONE WEEK from today!

Dead Bug Doug

September 5, 2008

That's Doug driving and me holding on for dear life!

A few months back, my brother Douglas, got his first set of wheels. Two wheels in fact. He got a motorcycle. A Honda CBR F4I to be exact.

It wants to go fast. Doug wants to go faster.

Back in June, when I was down for my mom’s birthday, he decided to take me for a ride. He promised to go slow around the block, and maintained about 15 mph most of the time, but felt like showing off and I caught a “35” on the speedometer once!

I knew I had something to fear immediately. As soon as I got on the back of the bike, all Doug said was, “Don’t. Let. Go.”

And you better believe that I didn’t! I held on so tight to my brother that my sweat outline was on the back of his shirt and my fingernails had left impressions on his ribs! He wasn’t the only left scarred that day…every time I tried to yell to him to “SLOW DOWN” I got a throat-full of dreadlock!

You’ll meet him at the wedding. He’ll be pimpin it in a blue pinstripe suit.
