Wedding Week is Over

Well, I made it... the mother of the bride survived 6 days of wedding festivities!! I don't normally post pictures without the person in the picture consent, but today I am making an exception: Here is the blushing bride and her new hubby. Don't you think the bride looks like her mom?? LOL. The officiant had just announced them as a couple, you know the drill, "may I present to you Mr. and Mrs..... blah blah blah" My darling baby girl had to strike a pose!! She is so cute. The reception was amazing. The staff/wedding coordinators at the hotel were amazing, they spotted and kicked out wedding crashers within SECONDS of them entering the room. At one point a lady crasher went up to the bar for a free cocktail. the bartender realized she did not really fit in and asked her the name of the bride and groom. When she could not answer, he had her escorted out of the room. Cool, hu?? Everyone received a small bottle of champagne and a chocolate bar - the wrapper had their names on it and the dates of their first date/engagement and wedding date. Too cute. I could go on and on and on, but I'll spare you!!
On the SWAP front: My SP11 has sent me a package, but it arrived when no one was home. He took the slip today saying it's ok to re-deliver - so I should have it tomorrow (9/26). Thank you SP11 buddy - I can't wait to see what you sent me!!
I have my bag ready for my HOGWARTS Sock Kit Swap, but need to put some finishing touches in the package and then that is out and in the mail... should be next week. The package is due by the end of October.
PAY IT FORWARD. I have two folks who left comments on pay it forward and want to participate in that. Very nice!!
I leave Thursday for a convention in SoCal. I'll be home Sat night and ready to knit. I am going to do the KAL on Ready Set Knit, the sweater on the cover of Interweave Knits..... Think I'll buy the yarn tonight and try to do a swatch at Knit Night (checkout the link to my LYS, they have it set up really cute.
