Last night we wanted to rent a light, funny movie and Frank kindly suggested Bride Wars. Lucky for him, he fell asleep 20 minutes in, because it would be generous to give that movie a half star. I'd be lying if I said my feathers were never ruffled during this planning process, but Kate and Anne make Bridezillas look collected. Unfortunately, there might be a sequal because at the end of the film, *spoiler alert* they are both pregnant and due on the SAME day. OMG, EEEEK!!!!

Extra cheese, hold the stripper

I'm posting some photos from my bachelorette party last weekend. Pam planned a fantastic evening with my favorites - friends, food and wine. Luckily, there was no hunk-o-mania involved, just some harmless props and a bridal cap that Pam pawned off, err, gave to me.

Not Cute

I've come down with a nasty cold and have stayed home from work 2 days now. Frank had to twist my arm to stay home - for some reason I put more emphasis on work and this dang conference call to Singapore than my health a week before my wedding. I either have a really strong work ethic or am just plain nuts. Anyway, I am resting, watching reruns of Roseanne and occasionally blogging for my entertainment. Okay, gotta go sniff some nasal spray (like I said, not cute).

I came across this amazing photograph of a hotel in Sorrento. I want to go to Italy for this hotel room alone! Frank, we have lots of exploring to do - are you ready for the adventure? I know you are.

The "First" Date

I love that the Obamas dined at Blue Hill before attending a Broadway Show last weekend. Out of all the restaurants in New York! I'm sure they were fist-bumping after that meal, because the food is gooood. We went to Blue Hill over Memorial Day Weekend to plan our menu and we are so excited. It's very unusual to discuss the menu only a few weeks before a wedding, but that is because Blue Hill is so seasonal. According to Ilene who just ate there, asparagus is VARY in!
