Progress! 9 September 2009

Filed under: Wedding thoughts — Palila @ 10:45

We finished a large group of Thank You notes last night! They’re heading out in the mail today and, hopefully, they will all keep their addresses to their final destinations. Georgia’s moving out in the next week or so, so we’re packing up things for her, which means we’ll have room to start unpacking and putting away the awesome subjects of said notes, which has prompted a new goal: to finish the thank you notes before we start using the majority of the wedding gifts. (The previous goal had been to finish them within a month of the wedding, but we have clearly missed that self-imposed deadline.) We’re about 2/3 finished with all of the notes, so I think that we can definitely meet the new goal!


Getting the flowers 30 August 2009

Friday morning, we went to the flower market and picked out the flowers! And then brought them home. My bouquet is lovely, no?
My bouquet: done

I’m finally getting around to posting the photos that Lisa took during the wedding weekend- head over to Flickr and see what’s happening.

After I get these done, I’ll be uploading the ones taken with my camera. Did you take any photos? Send me a link and I’ll make a post with a list of all the photo locations!


Not Done 6 August 2009

Filed under: Wedding thoughts — Palila @ 18:09

Don’t worry, we’re not done with this blog yet!

We’re busy writing thank you notes, getting our thoughts together from the weekend (and the honeymoon), and waiting for pictures from friends and the hired pro. So, stay tuned, and I’m sure things will settle down enough (and we’ll have things put together enough) for a full-on series of pictures and recaps in the near-ish future.


It’s today! 11 July 2009

I am (we are) both so happy that today is finally here and happening, and we’re both overwhelemed by our friends and family, and what they’re making happen. Thank you.


Love/hate 10 July 2009

We both have a weird love/hate relationship with the registry.

We both love that it’s an organized way to keep things in order, especially if things work correctly and three crock pots don’t show up at a shower.

It wasn’t a bad thing. I (and later, we) were pretty flattered that the thing people thought we needed most was a crock pot (and trust me, we do/did need a replacement for lil’ sparky.) We’re both excited that we can cook things for, say, a dinner + leftovers, or meatballs for a baby shower in something we have.

We’re both a little weirded out by the “this is what we want”aspect. I think we’d both be most comfortable with the old-fashioned “register for a pattern, not for specific things” days, or almost no registry at all (except for the communication aspect.)

So, we’ve both come to view the registry as a suggestion box, if youse guys feel the need to get us a something. Either it’s “this is the pattern we like, in dishes/silverware/etc we think will last a long time”, or, “this is a suggestion of what we like and know we’d use, if you find something better/cheaper/faster elsewhere, that’s fine with us.” We trust your judgement of what you think we might need, if you think we need something.
