NaBloPoMo - we meet again

I'm going to try again. I don't make any promises, but I will try.

We got back from Hawai'i yesterday at 4:55am. It was a horrific flight back, but a wonderful, wonderful vacation. I will post pictures and more details soon.

The wedding went off with only a small hitch - the limo driver got lost on the way to the ceremony, so I was about 20 minutes late to my own wedding. Really, it is a small miracle that I managed to get my hair done, get lost on the way back to the hotel, and still manage to be dressed and ready to go ON TIME. I was actually, I think, about five minutes early. The limo showed up late, and then fifteen minutes after we had left (the church is about seven minutes away, tops) we passed the hotel AGAIN. I finally had to holler directions to him from the back of the limo. My dress was way too big for me to crawl up there and give him directions politely. But, it all worked out, I got married and had a blast. I think everyone enjoyed themselves.

Our band was awesome: The Bill Pollack Orchestra. They are not cheap, but if you are throwing a party in the Chicagoland area and you want everyone to dance their butts off, it is totally worth it.

My photographer was fantastic. You can see pictures of our wedding on his blog:, click on "blog." His server has been wonky today, so there's no knowing if you'll get in or not, but eventually, you will, and it is good. For those of you who were there and/or in it, I'll be sending out a link soon to all the pictures, so you can order if you want. Right now, I can't get to the link, but I'll send it soon.

Neither of those people paid me to promote them, but I loved them so much, I thought I'd spread the word.

I'll post soon with pictures and more details. In the meantime, this is the best jack-o-lantern I have ever seen. Seriously, that is fantastic.

Thanks! I love my pumpkin too, even if he is now smelly and wrapped in a garbage bag waiting for his death. Maybe next year you can finally make it to the party and make your own attempt at pumpkin greatness and a prize.

By the way, yes, your band was fantastic. We loved them. We had a super-fantastic time at your wedding. And I am so sorry that under my stewardship, your team lost again. I think you're a shoo-in for a booby prize this year.

Congratulations! A wedding wouldn't be perfect if there wasn't at least one small hitch, so that you have a great story to tell.

And your photographer. Wow. Just wow. I scrolled through the photos and every single picture is absolutely stunning.

Um, yeah - ROCK. Kelly's photos are terrifically awesome, and should I ever decide to take a husband, I shall have to have him come do the photos. Besides, we've already bonded, so I've got that going for me. You have no idea how much fun I had at the wedding. Amazing! I want the Bill Pollack Orchestra to play for me every damn day, because I really think that would add the extra oomph I'm looking for in my life.
