What I Did This Weekend

Vegas?
Local winery?
Country club?
WDW Marathon Weekend?

These are all suggestions that I've received so far in regard to a place to have my wedding. It might be important to note that I only got engaged late Saturday night while wearing a Stewie Griffin t-shirt in Las Vegas. Sexy, right?!? It is now Tuesday. I'll now share the suggestions that Man Friend came up with...

Pirate theme
Dueling pianos
Jimmy Buffett

See?? He and I ARE totally MFEO! (Made For Each Other. Yes, I'm such a grown up I love using MFEO.)

Apparently my step-dad has already been busy talking budget, location, etc... MF and I haven't even begun to think of a date, let alone time of year or ANYTHING. I find it all absolutely entertaining! Just today during lunch it all went from talk of planning to baby names to a Silence of the Lambs theme where I offered up that we could serve liver and fava beans. Gross, I know.

So what else happened in Vegas?

We walked to THE sign - and I melted. We walked along the Titanic promenade on a calm, starry night. We met up with another runner blogger that also got engaged in Vegas this weekend! We went to a Cirque du Soleil show. We saw Pete Rose, twice, all alone waiting for anyone to visit him. We spent a lot of time at Margaritaville. We sang a lot. We never stopped smiling. We had a truly wonderful time!! I might have a few small posts here and there just to share little bits of the trip. I can say that it was the best trip I've ever had to my favorite city in the entire world. AND ..... I'M GETTING MARRIED*!!!

*I promise not to be bridezilla.
**Attention: Watch your emails for your pre-wedding planning instructions! We will have regular meetings to go over itineraries, fittings, mixers, showers, parties, guests lists, etc. If you want to add an item to the agenda please get it to me at least 3 days before the meeting. I'll be serving Mimosas at the first one, please do not get drunk and make a fool of yourself. Let's keep this classy, ladies! Attendance IS mandatory.
