Weekend Wrap Up

It was a pretty low key yet productive weekend.  The main focus of the last two days were wedding planning & football. The weather was absolutely beautiful. Picture 75 degrees in January. Nice !

I actually talked Mr. Mixologist into attending the Bridal Extravaganza  with me on Saturday. His only requirement.......that we get out of there in time for the Texans game LOL. I know he loves me because I know there were some Bowl games earlier in the day that he wanted to see, but he came along with no fuss.  It was funny to watch all the grooms-to-be walking around checking scores on their phones & trying to pay attention at the same time. Funny.

We were there for almost 4 hours and we were BOTH beat when it was done. It was eye opening and a little overwhelming for him for sure.We have a lot of decisions to make as we still have not decided for sure just where the wedding will be. His family is in the South and the East Coast. My family is in the Midwest.  Neither of us have family in Houston, but we both have great friends here.  Our families will have to travel regardless so we are talking about the logistics. So no date or firm location yet, but we are trying to figure it all out.

He mailed the copies of the DVD of his Proposal to  both his parents & my parents & they  received them last week, so just when we thought the excitement was waning, they all got riled up again ! They were laughing about how it went from the typical chaotic, Christmas morning gift opening, video to all of a sudden serious & then back to laughter mixed with tears, LOL. It is such a blessing to see people genuinely so excited and happy for us & excited about the wedding.

My Beau was all into his football this weekend & there were some big games. So other than the Bridal Expo, I didn't get to spend that much time with him. The Texans are hanging in there & of course the Saints did their thing too. I really don't think that I will have his full attention until the Super Bowl is over, LOL & that is fine with me.

All in all it was a cool weekend.  

How was your weekend ?  How is the weather in your area ?

Glad you enjoyed the bridal expo! Much to our friends' and fam's chagrin, we have decided to hold off on any planning until next month. Very sweet re: the proposal DVDs :)

Take your own sweet time :)
Like one of my sorors told me, remember it's YOUR wedding, don't let family or friends pressure you to set a date or pick a location until you both agree what you want.
