The weekend is over, and I thought I'd let you know how the day unfolded.
I arrived around 2:30 - as per Mom#2's request - only to find that my BM was there! I was so excited - she is a new mom (baby girl was born on July 2), so I really didn't expect her to travel in for the party. bridesmaid, new baby, mom#2 is holding the baby
The next exciting component of the day was the professional pedicurist that my mom hired to provide services to the ladies. I was so surprised to see this. It was such a nice treat on a Saturday afternoon! My mom having her pedi! FMIL having her turn! MY TURN!!!!! Six ladies in attendance opted for the pedi, here we all are with a near empty glass of wine
Aside from the pedicures, we spent the afternoon swimming and hottubing!!!
In the afternoon, a variety of hors d'oevures were served along with fresh mojitos, and my Mom#2's world famous margaritas.
The dinner for the the event was a tour of Italy, accompanied by many fine italian wines.
I was super surpised to be spoiled with a large selection of vintage wines, all of the wines were accompanied with instructions on when they were to be enjoyed. We received bottles that are slated for:
- our seventh anniversary,
- the birth of our first baby
- the day we dig the hole for our new home on the river
And, many many more... all with different reasons to open.
I was thrilled and so honoured, what a great event! This is me, right after I finished muddling through my speeches/toasts!
