Filed under I told you so:

My bike at the bike shop getting front and back flat tires fixed.  We rode at a beach and I picked up sand spurs... on both tires.  I wanted to pick them all off but DH said that they couldn't hurt... :(

Whodathunkit?  

Now he is gone to pick up my bike so I can stay home and eat cake..

We did cupcakes for our wedding, with a 6 inch buttercream cake for our toppers. Because of my MIL's meddling, most of the cupcakes were uneaten, we even tried to pass them off to people on the morning after breakfast (for out of town guests), but most of them ended up in the freezer, and then tossed.

They were good, though.

 

I'm just catching up, but I would love to hear this story.  If you feel like sharing.

For starters, she told the wait staff to pour champagne in our guests drinks ahead of time. We had put some hibiscus (http://wildhibiscus.com/) in a glass then once you add champagne, the lil flower opens up nicely. Because it was prepoured, all guests saw was this icky thing in the glass and wondered what it was.

She insisted on having this creme brulee for dessert which was pretty crappy - while we had Belgian chocolates (which she told staff to not bring out), and after the dessert everyone sort of left. Leaving us with all the cupcakes.

Wow!  That is so cool.  Makes my koozies seem really ****.  :)    All we did was have the restaurant bring up like 9 different plates of their normal appetizers, like chicken wings, fried zucchini, stuff like that.. They put it right on the bar and everyone just bellied up, munching and getting drinks..  :)

Because everyone absolutely wants to know:

Our wedding party was a resounding success.  We had the third floor of a restaurant all to ourselves, a dj couple who gave some dance lessons, an open bar, appetizers, hats, sunglasses, and of course party koozies.  Everyone just ordered off the menu and the food was great.

We had so much fun that we extended the party an hour. 

The restaurant was right on the ocean.  It was beautiful.  :)

 

 

Excellent!

So happy to hear you pulled it off.

Oh wait, that was just between us wadnit

Not really.... the only thing that didn't totally work was the NO GIFT rule...  So now we have to go out and send thank you notes.

Truth be told, the gifts we got were simple, like restaurant gift cards, or some nice wine. 

I suppose it is really hard for people not to bring a gift, it goes against their grain.

The restaurant was very nice about us serving our own cake.  They even gave us little appetizer dishes to hand them out on.  Cupcakes would have been a good choice too.. I wish I had thought about it...

Greetings!

On minutiae news, I started to use aluminum foil dryer balls. I like them.

??????????????????????????? 

Aluminum foil dryer balls

No static and no smell (a requisite for LadyRider)

Since they collect static charges, you can then use them to charge your cell phone...

Sounds great.

Sounds like a great party.

Just right for a smallish group... I can only image the chaos involved in planning a real wedding...

I want a party coozie. :(

I ordered em online... It was really easy to do... and with custom printing, shipping etc, it was only like $45 for two dozen... annnnnnnnnnnnnd they threw in a bride and a groom koozie.

This was what I did instead of those bags of candy almond things..

That sounds like a much better idea. I never understood wedding favors. We don't do them in Britain. You get wedding cake to take home. And yes, it's fruit cake. 

Our cake was just a grocery store bakery 1/4 sheet cake.  We had them write "Better Late than Never"


Everyone got a piece, with a bit leftover for seconds, and two pieces to take home.  It was just right.

I have glass chickens, the kids have some with their names on and of course I have classic white. I feel like I need new egg cups now. I do have a cobalt blue double egg cup with gold leaf around the rim.

All I have is that 50 year old rocket ship... and that isn't even here in SC.  *needs egg cups*

I haven't had egg cups in forever! I don't think hubby like soft boiled too much.

L learned to scoot down a step :D

 

Mine have these adorable mini salt and pepper shakers that go with each cup. I love to use them. Of course, they're packed up right now.

Sweet.  What a wonderful concept.... so  stuff that comes with its own stuff..

Morning! 

I just was thinking about yarn.  Perhaps you could actually spin dryer lint, and make your own?

Then again maybe not. *gently places egg into egg cup, looks suspicious* 

Now what? 

 

 

*hands Wicky spoon*

Now you get to bash your egg over the head. :)

ETA: you can be all proper and cut the top off it with a knife, but it's not as much fun.

*hides sledge hammer under napkin, taps with  spoon*  Thank you...

Yesterday I had grits with my eggs, really very nice.

Yesterday, from early morning until 9pm I entertained my twin, along with her son and his girlfriend.

Today I will sit in my sweatpants and recover.
