Bad News, Good News

Bad News: My camera did not want to cooperate and I didn’t get any decent pictures of the wedding shower this weekend.

Good News: My future Mother-in-law’s camera worked fine, so eventually I will have in my possession wedding shower photos.

And I do mean eventually, I think there were a couple hundred photos taken so it might take her some time to upload them all and get them sent over to us.  We did have a great time though.  It pretty much hit the trifecta of awesome: Good food, good people & presents!

These are some of the gifts we received, and there were many others that weren’t on our registry (that should have been). Our new kitchen will be well stocked.  Andy was almost as excited as I was about our gifts, but instead of thinking “Oh wow, I can bake so many cakes in these!” it was “Oh wow, Julie can bake me so many cakes in these!” Just kidding, well….sort of. Andy would wake up every morning and bake me a cake if it would make me happy, but the kitchen is mostly my domain and I actually enjoy cooking and baking for the man I love. Disgustingly cutesy right? Trust me, I am well aware, three years ago I would have slapped myself in the face.

It was so great to be home for a couple of days, a little sad because it doesn’t seem like I quite fit there anymore, but still wonderful to be with the people and friends I grew up with.  Everyone got to meet Andy and appropriately welcomed him to the Lake Wales family while sneaking in references to “gun collections” all in the same breath.  He was a trooper of course, and got to hear all sorts of stories about my childhood, you know, the ones that are cute and absolutely mortifying all at the same time.  At least his mother was there to keep things pretty even.
