My friend Liz got married on Saturday and it was such a beautiful ceremony. Since it was a December wedding, she had a Christmas theme with red and touches of green. Our bridesmaid dresses were red halter gowns with an embroidered overlay down the back...so pretty. Liz's dress was gorgeous...tons of beading and sparklies...she was GLOWING. :) We carried white fur muffs with mistletoe attached to the front and the guys wore little pine wreaths in place of the typical flower on the lapel. Liz and Eric served everyone communion, which was the highlight of the ceremony. We all walked out to Carol of the Bells...the perfect ending. I'm so happy for them and wish them all the best in their life together. Here are a few pics from the special day...more to come when she gets the professional ones! :)

Yesterday I went to Liz's bridal shower..it was a lot of fun to see her so excited. I gave her a wedding scrapbook for her to put their pictures in and was so happy that she liked it. I don't know how she is holding it together...she has planned her wedding in a month's time, finals week is this week and the wedding is this Saturday! I know she will be relieved when it is all over, although her soon-to-be-husband will be leaving for Africa for a year soon afterward (he's in the National Guard). Hopefully the time apart will just make their relationship stronger. Here are a few photos from the shower. :)

Today was such a nice day. Dan and I had our favorite lunch...tomato basil soup and grilled cheese at our local coffee shop, Sacred Grounds. After that we went to the mall and did some shopping. I found black shoes to wear with my dress for the wedding next weekend and a cute sweater and denim skirt. Tonight we actually went to the movies...and not the dollar theatre, the full price one! hee hee :) We saw "Casino Royale" and it was awesome...the new Bond is, well, HOT! He definitely made the movie extra fun to watch. :) I'm going to Liz's wedding shower tomorrow and I can't wait to give her the scrapbook I made...I hope she likes it!

I participated in the secret santa ornament exchange over on the nest (love those girls)...and look what I got in the mail today!! The boxes were so pretty I didn't want to open them...I was like a kid at Christmas. :) The ornaments are soooo adorable...like little pixies...and she filled the box with all sorts of chocolate mint candy...my favorite! So this is a big shout-out to my secret santa...she *ROCKS*! :)
