Now I know why your mom looked a little chubbier on Monday morning, OMG, eat much?? I would've been in a diabetic coma after the first bakery!!
Looking forward to your shower on the 29th. Sorry you didn't have time to come to school, WOULD'VE BEEN NICE TO MEET "D"!!! Oh well, I'll finally meet him at the shower. Glad you had a good and productive visit.

You will not be disappointed with Simma's. My fiance wouldn't hear of anything else once we tasted their cheesecake. We put our deposit in 2 years in advance, he was so adamant about it.

And, next time, stop at Kopps for custard. Oscars is good but nothing tops Kopps. ;)

Well I don't know how long it will take to get the extra lbs. off, but it was fun to taste all of the cakes. Sorry to correct you, but the florist was before the last bakery. I feel like we planned the entire wedding last weekend, and I feel so good about all that we did except for the extra lbs!!!

I stand corrected. I must have been in such a sugar-induced fog that my ability to notice chronology was hindered.

"with so much free cake being offered with no questions asked, our nation's hunger problems could be solved if everyone simply paired up and walked into bakeries pretending to be engaged"

Careful, there. We all remember what happened to the last person who said "Let them eat cake."

Inspired by your whirlwind week-end of planning


He thought, "When I propose, under moonlight with rose
That his greatest anxiety t'was shedding.

Felt all safe and secured, parent's blessing procured
Why's the gent still all pent up and dreading?

He and his bride-to-be, writing lists A to Z
Can't resist, gist is, lists keep on spreading.

Is the honeymoon done even 'fore it's begun
When it comes down to planning the wedding?

How many people can your folks invite?
How can we find the right venue?
Modern chic or antique, the gown ivory or white?
Chicken or beef on the menu?
Or a fish dish with knish could be simply delish
But should it be salmon or snapper?
A combo for mambo? Dixieland? Jazz Band?
Rock and Roll? Maybe Soul with a rapper?

Saturday evening in formal attire?
Sunday, an afternoon lunch?
A carriage that's horse-drawn or limo for hire?
White wine spritzers or pink champagne punch?

Three tiers of chocolate mousse and ganache?
A sheet cake with frosting vanilla?
It appears all this chasing the goose, well by gosh
For Pete's sake, it's exhausting the fella!

The best of advice
When the shoes and the rice
The love birds disturb and get down?
Remember that wedding is truly a verb
Wedding party's no more than a noun!
