Goodbye, Leap-Year February!

It wasn’t all that terrible of a month, but I think I wasn’t all that compelled to write about it in this here blog, that’s for sure.  Larry & I did get some wedding planning progress made though, and that has gone a long way towards hopefully making April 30 go off without a hitch.  We’ve happily received many of the RSVPs and sent out some additional invitations as we got a sense of how many more people we can bring in.  I really think it’ll be a good time and I can’t wait to see all the friends and family who join us.  Let’s just see if El Nino can not be a total asshole and save all its rain for April and/or May.

Random Hits:

  • This year’s Oscars were kind of okay.  I’m glad Spotlight won Best Picture over Mad Max: Fury Road.  For obvious reasons with regards to the fact I really wasn’t a fan of Fury Road, but also because we did see Spotlight and it was amazing.  Also, Mark Rylance winning for Bridge of Spies was a sensational surprise.  He was soooo good in that movie and when you’re watching him in it, you just think, man, he should win awards for this role!  Of course, Bridge of Spies ended up being kind of an under-the-radar movie especially for a Tom Hanks / Steven Spielberg collaboration, but by all means, go see it!
  • We went to Nicki’s yesterday to watch the Oscars, and it was a lot of fun.  I drank all the wine.  That was actually my theme for this weekend, which may be what’s driving my mindset about saying peace out to February.  I’m possibly hungover still.  Ugh.
  • On Saturday night, Larry & I went to what is likely the now for-reals venue for the rehearsal dinner – a French restaurant called A Food Affair.  It was wonderful and had a ton of charm.  The manager, Babette, was as French as you could imagine and so fun to talk to.  I took pictures but I’ll put them up tomorrow or something.  I just wanted to get this post in on LEAP DAY.  eyeroll..
  • Tomorrow I finally get to meet our wedding coordinator, who is also a coworker of Larry’s.  We’re all going to be at the Oviatt for our final walkthrough of the venue and wow, it’s crazy to think we’re just over 2 months away!!!  Here goes nothing!

Alright, that’s it for now.  I’m sleepy and need my beauty sleep.
