For anyone who's been crossing appendages or holding breath, thanks, you can stop now!

We have our venue picked out and booked for next spring. We got a sweet-ass hookup through Oldest Friend, whose parents are sponsoring us (they're members of the place), so we're getting the member price, which is far more reasonable than the non-member price. Now we've got a date, a state, and a place, so the fun part can begin. It's in the town where I grew up, on a private lake with a lawn and a beach and lots of trees, among other amenities. We'll go look at it in May when we go to CA, so Hulk can see it and so we can meet with the event scheduler person. I'm so excited to be able to get married at this place; it figured into quite a few birthday parties and other shindigs I attended as a kid, so I have fond memories of it. Plus, it's way more convenient to nearby fun stuff and places to stay than the other places we'd been considering.

Man, I kind of can't believe this is really happening! Whoo!

Oh - I should write about something non-weddingy, for most of you who don't actually care about wedding stuff. Hmmm. A friend from the Bay Area will be visiting us next week for a couple of days before she takes the train back to Emeryville. Our nerd group is doing nerd stuff this weekend, and I've decided to play a new character who will totally kick some ass. It got rainy and sleety and freezing cold again this morning, so I shivered on my walk to work. And the most exciting thing that's happened to me today was reading Frema's latest installment in Tragic Love Friday. Because I am such an exciting person.

The internets have ben quiet this week. Is everyone out doing fun stuff except me?

EEK! said...

Yay! Can't wait.

I've been slammed this week. When daily Lent writing is over I can go back to making dumb shit up for my blog.

Yay for all that stuff. We left Thursday evening for Louisiana and just got back. More later when I get pics from the boy's mom.
