we went to tahoe this weekend with boyfriend's parents. stupid me, hadn't even thought to maybe ask them if they would like to see the place where their baby was getting married. seriously. it hadn't even occurred to me to ask. and part of it was that they never inquired either (plus it's not like the location is right around the corner or anything). if they had expressed an interest in seeing it, i would have been like, "oh my gosh, OF COURSE!!!!" it took my mom to mention having them up, for me to realize what a dumbass i am.
so we went up there with the mission of finding a place to have our rehearsal dinner. mission accomplished! it was cool, but exhausting. why is that driving from place to place, getting out of the car to look at it, then getting back in the car to drive to the next place, is so damn tiring?!?!? it doesn't make much sense, but it is.
we met with the new florist, who was super eccentric, but super helpful and we changed our cake design up a bit. all in all, it was a great weekend!! i actually think our cake won't be hideous anymore!!! not only will it taste good, it's going to look good too! (yes, this is different from what we originally thought. we figured it would be the best tasting cake in the world, but look awful) i liked the reception site about 50 times better too and realized that i haven't seen it since we booked it (which was a year ago). it's such a big place and with all the light that was streaming into it, i was happy. it didn't seem as dark as i remembered and it was a lot larger than i remembered as well. i love the design of it because you don't have to only sit at your table, like at most receptions. there is a full, real bar that you could hang out in, or there is a dancefloor/cocktail area. i love that you aren't glued to your chair at your table- unless you want to be. it's really open too and there are no doors, so you don't feel closed in. i dig it. glad we saw it again. and everyone approves. right on!
everything is awesome and coming along and i'm excited! now, if only the wedding was tomorrow- that would be the awesome-ist!!! :)
