I dont know why this project took weeks and weeks to complete
oh right, it’s because I have no attention span
first, let’s recap:

this picture is crappy but it was fun filling them all out:
I made wrap-around labels for the envelopes
I got a perforating blade to make the fourth panel of the invitations (reply card) detatchable
oh and my honey bunny and brother were so helpful?

Yesterday (sunday….I’m a night owl, so at 2am “yesterday” is actually like two days ago), we had our first wedding “event.” The Sully Family (they’ve been close friends of the Hunt family forever) threw a wedding shower for Dave and I in the afternoon, and it was so fun because it was for families, not just the bride.
Let’s describe what’s going on here….we got two big jars of oreos and hershey kisses from Emily (what a great way to present the canisters we registered for!), a really pretty cake, and lots of little kids to play with.
One thing I sort of hate about the wedding process is the difference of attention and excitement directed toward the bride versus the groom. It seems like the expectations for the grooms in our culture is to seem defeated, like he is giving up his social life, and has finally succombed to the pressure to settle down, choose a wife, create a romantic proposal (including the diamond, of course), participate in the wedding of her dreams, and do whatever she wants for the rest of his life. Grooms lose, brides win.
I really don’t understand that, I don’t know how that would lead to a happy life together, and I dont understand why the groom can’t win, too. I guess that’s the attitude that helped me develop my approach to our entire relationship. I think I was the one who pursued Professor Lasertron all along. I decided he was my favorite person ever, so it logically followed that I created a romantic and special proposal (okay, I admit that I did buy a ring), and that I include him in the planning not only of our wedding but our marriage. Why wait? Why hint around trying to get him to give me what I want? Why not let him be an active participant in his own life?
So, we had a wedding shower. It was great to see all of the families–moms, dads, babies, toddlers, kids, grandmas, cousins, uncles, aunts, friends, everything in between. Opening gifts given so generously to us–both of us–really made it seem so real. We’re accumulating “our” things. It’s just the beginning.
