Angie & Bill S

Frank and I went to Angie and Bill’s wedding on Saturday and it was STUNNINGLY beautiful! I haven’t ever seen a wedding reception quite like it. Very tasteful and elegant and perfect. Angie’s dress was just about the prettiest dress she could have had and fit her personality perfectly. It had a princess neckline and waist, a ball gown bottom and just exquisite beading. The reception site was gorgeous. It was at The Glen Club in Glenview. The brick terrace overlooked the golf course that was laid out in such a way that it obscured the surroundings and made you feel that you had plunked down in the middle of nowhere (except when the occasional plane took off from O’Hare). Angie and Bill had special cocktails that included the Wedding Bellini and the Mai Bride. They even had a harpist!

For dinner, we ate the most yummy tomato bisque, followed by a great salad, then fillet and chicken for dinner with asparagus (yum), mashed potatoes (yummier!), and finally, an almond wedding cake with creme brulee & strawberry filling. SOOOO GOOD! I told my mom that this is where my sister needs to get married. Just gotta find her a guy, first.

Showers, showers, everywhere…

The showers were really nice this weekend… from what I saw of them… eek! Too much on my plate. I left Dor’s early to go to Angie & Bill’s wedding. And I was TERRIBLY late for Jennie’s. Due to some miscommunication between my roommate and me, I thought the shower was at 4p, but it was at 12n. Woops. I was soooo embarassed! But this is what happens when you are crazy busy.

Last but not least…

Mom and Dad’s party went off with few hitches and they loved it. I can’t write any more about this because, quite honestly, I’m tired. πŸ™‚

  1. Hey Em, Your being late to that one shower made me think of the time Craig and I went to a friends wedding. Craig said the wedding was at 7:30, so, foolihsly I believed him. So, we get there and all the food is gone and everything…. turns out the thing started at 3:30! AHH! I felt really dumb for not demanding to see the invite (which had lost it’s way somewhere on Craig’s desk). Luckily, it was just a reception since they had had a destination wedding. πŸ™‚

  3. Hey Em… I have a response to what your wrote in my comments about animals….Hey Em… Well, I understand what you are saying, and I know that you do respect my view… but you missed my point. It’s not an issue of people not respecting others who have pets but an issue of people respecting animals. All animals.Anyway, this is an issue where I know most people don’t agree with my oppinions and frankly don’t really get what I am saying anyway. Most people don’t have as much respect for animals as I do. I basically give them the same respect I would any person. There are animals out there that do great things to help people. Whether it is alerting their people to a fire, dragging them from icy water or helping an autistic child…they do great things. Not to mention the dogs and also miniature ponies that work as guide animals. There are also many dogs that work doing search and rescue as well as helping disabled people do things by opening doors, being a stable body to help them get up if they fall and getting the phone when it rings. Now imagine how many people abuse their animals. Emaciated dogs with collars that are too tight and have become imbedded into their necks. People who keep hundreds of cats or birds in their house and never clean up or give them proper nutrition. It’s really those people that I get most angry at.OK, I do have a point! I can just go on and on and on so I need to stop now… Point being… I know you respect that I have my oppinions on this and I respect that you have yours. But we will never quite see eye to eye so it’s best to not really talk about it because I get easily frustrated. Unless you realllly want to get into a debate. πŸ™‚
