Parties & Wedding Planning

The last few weekends have been filled with various things to do.

On the weekend of the 7th, Eric and I attended the company holiday party at Venegas Prime Filet. It was a nice establishment set in Columbia, MD. I booked a room for us for the night so we would not have to worry about traveling across the bay bridge again for the evening, and to allow us both time to rest. Eric hunted that morning and wasn’t feeling well, so I ended up driving us to the hotel and arranging the taxi from the hotel to the restaurant and back for the party.

The restaurant was lovely, the food was fantastic, and the party was wonderful. It was a nice, relaxed atmosphere, and I think everyone had a good time. The raffled off three prizes, an iPad, a 42” TV and a trip to the Bahamas. Alas, I won neither of the prizes, but I have absolute certainty that those who did will greatly enjoy them.

Prior to the weekend, Eric had sent my engagement ring off to be sized. I got the ring back on Tuesday, and couldn’t be happier to have it back. It is a beautiful diamond, just the right size, with a nice simple band. I don’t like anything big, or too flashy, so he picked well. It’s a little snug on my finger, but not so much that it’s uncomfortable. We’ll see how it continues to fit as we move into the summer months (Have they come yet? How about now? No, really, now? I’m done with this cold stuff.)

This past weekend I attended the Bridal Extravaganza event that was hosted at the Tidewater Inn, in Easton, MD. There was one the weekend of the company party in Timonium, but I was nowhere near prepared to attend that one. It also would have been on a much larger scale. I went to this event with my sister, Susan. We met at a centralized location, and took a single care over because we figured parking would be limited. It was.

Once there, I was accosted (not literally) by the various vendors to sign up for various things, many of them boasting prizes and raffles in a cleverly disguised way to get my information so they can contact me later. I obliged with most of them. We also had the fortune of tasting various cakes and other snacks that the various venues provide with their services. There was much numminess.

We had the opportunity to go to a fashion show later in the day, as we missed the first one, but after attending so many booths and picking up information at nearly all of them, after a few hours I was already spent – and had much food for thought. So, we headed off, and I went to attend some other errands before returning home for the rest of day.

All in all it was a good trip, as it gave me more of an overall view of what things to expect for planning a wedding. It’s certainly a daunting task, but I’m certain in the end I’ll come up with something I know I’ll like and enjoy.
