    well, ladies...


    i'm sitting here in a dark computer lounge dripping with love...i'm the happiest, i've ever been..EVER..EVER!!!


    while there were a few hiccups...like...i don't have a clue where my bridal hanger is...didn't get pics with it or anything AND my ribbon for the cutlery was with it..so that's incognito too..i know i packed it..but can't find the damn thing for nothin so, some of the decor didn't go exactly the way i wanted..but still beautiful..had to move the wedding inside due to the weather AND i feel as though Marcia E. Roberts (our photographer) didn't have enough time to capture mine and torry's love (eventhough she's incredibly prompt, professional, patient and overwhelmingly accommodating) due to some crazy timing with having to move things inside, etc..plus, i was late walking down the aisle (again, timing, etc) but all in all, everything was great!!! 


    i decided to just 'go with the flow' and adopt a 'no problem, mon' attitude at the last minute...our guests were happy and i'm confident that everyone had a GREAT time. i was even able to contain the 'ugly' cry during the ceremony..although, my Daddy 'almost' broke me down with words of encouragement at the beginning of our stroll down the aisle...i had to 'nip' that quickly.  girls, at the age of 40...i can't tell you how much of a Daddy's little girl, I felt like yesterday evening...it was by far, one of the defining moments of my life!  SAVOR that walk with your father, ladies..SAVOR EVERY SINGLE MINUTE!!  it was...well...it was indescribable!


    hoping to post pics, soon.  stay tuned for those.


    THANKS for the encouragement, thoughts and well wishes for my big day..it was truly amazing!!!  until next time...remain blessed and HAPPY PLANNING!!!

        Good afternoon Mrs Torrey Gundy,


        I am so happy for you. While you were wedding, I was with my FI and all of his family and friends celebrating his big 40. I promised myself that I would take some time to send positive thoughts your way, but everything just moved so fast.


        I know just how you feel about your hanger and the ribbon for your cutlery. I feel as though all of these months that I spent planning my FI's surprise 40th birthday treasure hunt, I still forgot somethings. I never got one of his friend's e-mail addresses, they found out about the party and were a little hurt for not being invited. I downloaded the top hit of 1971 onto my computer, which was no easy feat because I'm not an itunes user (never had an ipod--missed the whole phase) and left my computer at home. I forgot to cook the spring rolls and put out the kiwi.


        But, just as you, let go and could let the moment with your father sink in, I let go and enjoyed the amazingly beautiful Minnesota weather (go figure), which held up despite the promises of thunderstorms, my FI's friends, his family, the laughter of children, and most of all my FI's surprised look every time he got a treasure/party.


        Who knew wedding/party planning would give us life lessons? Can't wait to see your pictures!


        Enjoy the rest of your stay and get back to your hubby. We'll make do until those pictures arrive when you are back at home.

                  Everything looks perfect, your guest didn't know that you were missing ribbons.  I am so happy the WC was able to recreate your table,  how stunning it looks.  As for you, you looked ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! WORK IT, LOL.  You look happy......I'm happy for you that all your hard work was such a great success.


                  Now enjoy your MAN and get off the computer (IPhone), waiting on your review *WHEN YOU GET BACK TO THE STATES!!
