Wedding

Tea-rrific Bridal Shower

When my bridesmaids started planning for my bridal shower, I did not ask for much. I wanted just the closest girls in my life present – no others. I did not care for a big party or a lot of people for the sake of having a lot of people. I wanted something simple but memorable. What these ladies did was beyond amazing.Ā After numerous rescheduling and finding a day that worked best for everybody, we finally settled on one day. That day was on Sunday, October 23rd.

It was everything I had asked for. It was simple, sweet, and full of love. Everyone had a part, and everyone did an amazing job! I felt so special. We had a mimosa bar, a dessert table, and plenty of delicious food fit for an afternoon tea party. All the decorations were beautifully handcrafted by one of the ladies. We had games that turned out overly hilarious, and a Photo Booth wall. I could not have asked for more. I may or may not have cried during my thank you speech. šŸ˜‰

Truly, I felt so special and so blessed.

This Owl Is Getting Married!

I’m a night owl. I think better at night, unless I’m extremely tired and ready to knock out. But my best ideas come in the evening when it’s all quiet and peaceful. It is also a dangerous time for me because that’s when I tend to do a lot of onlineĀ window shopping or booking random short trips.

With that said, I think it’s time for me to catch up on life on here. I have not actually talked about what has been going on in my life. Let’s see…

I’m getting married in forty-two days! That is coming up soooo fast. We started the countdown when we booked our church and venue at the beginning of last December. I remember thinking, “Gosh. We’ve got a long, long way ’til the day!” Geez, could I be more wrong? Now, it’s almost here. It started to hit us when we met with our ceremony and music coordinator, as well as our officiant. Who knew there would be so much details that go in such ceremony?Ā We’re getting married in church. Next, we gotta apply for our marriage license and turn additional paperwork that Mike did not have ready today. Yikes!

I also mentioned short trips above. These past couple months, I have taken a number of day trips to Los Angeles for my wedding gown: for measurements, fitting, refitting, etc. Next trip? FinalĀ fitting and pick up! WHAT?! I’ve also decided to make something out of it. I just booked a flight for Mike, so we can spend a day at Disneyland. It will be our last Disneyland trip as a non-married couple, and it’s only for one day.Ā I cannot wait!

That weekend will kick me in the butt, for sure!

Oh. I also booked a couples massage during our honeymoon. I mean, we do deserve it after all, right? šŸ˜‰ Surprisingly, it’ll be our first time getting a massage together in the (almost) ten years that we have been together. He usually massages me, and it feels great most of the time.

Confession: I still have so much more to do for the wedding. It’s part procrastination and part unaware. Whoops! I’ll get on it fast though!

And that’s it for now! I have work in six hours, which means I must get up in four so I can leave the house in five hours. Sigh..

Thank You, Vin!

Baseball is a big deal in my household. Opening Day is always anticipated and festive, but Game #162 is just as important and special… whether or not we’re in the postseason! With that said, you may be able to guess that yesterday was a very important day for us. After all, we are San Francisco Giants fans! #BeliEVENĀ No, I definitely do not want to get my hopes us. I also do not want to jinx our playoff run. However, I do want to express how excited I am to see my team in the postseason once again. We are probably spoiled with theĀ every other year championship, but I would not mind another one.

But hey, let’s take it back one time. Yesterday was a special day. Vin Scully, the GOAT, has turned off his microphone. He has retired. And there was no better place to be than inside the park that houses his favorite MLB team (the Giants) šŸ˜‰ playing against his beloved team (the Dodgers).

The Giants handed outĀ Thank You Vin cards as fansĀ entered the park, and you could feel that the day was going to be something elseĀ for many reasons and emotions. Although I heard his commentating only while visiting or road tripping to and from the Los Angeles area Ā and through the replays ofĀ The Catch, I will forever remember his poetic narration and voice. The park was quite emotional as everyone sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” and the finale montage with Frank Sinatra’s “I Did It My Way” as the background song. It was fantastic, and I am glad I could be there. And I think no matter your fandom in the major leagues, you have to appreciate someone who has dedicated 67 years of their lives to the sport, the team, and the fans. What a phenomenal individual.

I’m also thankful for whoever bought our Cowboys vs 49ers tickets through Ticket Exchange. ;D
