What a weekend! The 3 week mark came and went in the blink of an eye. It just seems like time is flying by! Although when you are moving at warp speed 24/7 it is hard to take time to actually think.
Friday night we sat down with the Strand fam to taste loads of wine. Unfortunately, the cheapest bottle of wine that our rehearsal dinner venue offers is $38. I like my friends and family a lot, but I will not serve them $38 bottles all night. So we did a little taste test of some more affordable options. I think we ended up sampling 12 or so bottles of wine (I don't think we actually finished any of those bottles which is a very good thing). The good news is that we made our selections and everyone has some yummy drinks to look forward to.
Saturday Scott headed down to 49ers Training Camp while I sat in a chair for 2.5 hours getting my hair and make up done. You know, just a typical Saturday. Ok, it was actually another trial for the wedding. Once he was finished I was pretty much ready to just pick up my dress and head to the church. I know I need to relax and enjoy the next few weeks of planning and celebrating but I am just ready!!!!
After our morning activities there was a trip to Costco, Office Max and the craft store. Hopefully some of our last big wedding errands checked off the list. Of course, there was no stopping there. After dumping out all of our goods in the guest bedroom (good luck finding the bed when you get here, mom) we were headed down south for Aaron and Robert's 40th birthday party.
Whoa. There must have been something in the peninsula air that night because Scott and I both had a fire in us. Apparently we were practicing for the wedding because we put on quite the dance show. First I ended up in a "Thriller" dance off with Aaron's brother-in-law and then Scott joined in for a few songs. Then we realized we were the only ones dancing. At least we know how to have a good time! Maryam and Karina put on an incredible party...I really should have had them plan the wedding! PS-Chrissie was our DD so we were in good hands!
#1, 2 or 3?

Time to take Scott home
Sunday we rested. NOPE! Scott got up far too early and went golfing and then drove down to meet me and the Strand Fam at the Ackley's. It was a GORGEOUS day down south and I worked very hard on my tan for the wedding. I doubt it will last three weeks but maybe with a tad of maintenance it will stick around. Thanks Ackley family for letting us float around in your pool with excellent company!

Look at that fog rolling over. It was nice to escape the foggy city for a day though! Note to all wedding attendees...summer in San Francisco is a very special time of year where the sun doesn't shine, the wind blows, and it is generally just cold. Pack sweaters, jackets, pants and maybe even some mittens. seriously.
Whew. I need a nap just reliving the weekend excitement. Not many days left but we are making sure to jam as much as is humanly possible in.
