So, we had our engagement party on Saturday.  It turned out well.  It was a crazy day…weekend really.  I got up at 8:15 Sat morning so I could go to the salon and get my nails done and get home by 10:30 am so we could get dressed and leave by 11:45 so we could get to the restaurant early.  Megan got lost…shocker!  But everyone showed up.  We acutally got a lot of gifts.  I was surprised that people bought us gifts like that.  To be honest I was really only expecting checks or gift cards. 

I opened the HSBS online savings account yesterday.  They are still pending Vic’s portion of the application.  That’s probably because my legal residence is still in NY and his is NJ.  At least they said that the over all application is approved.  They will contact Vic via email or phone to get the information they need.

Anway, it was a good party and I’m glad everyone showed up.  Now it’s time to do the thank you cards.  I just need to pick up some more.

Well, I think I acutally finished my registry.  I went out to BBB last night and I was looking at China patterns for so long that when I closed my eyes that was all I saw!  LOL.  It’s such a relief.  The last thing I have to do is get Vic’s opinion on the formal flatware.  That’ll be annoying since he’s so picky.  Whatever…

The engagement party is Saturday.  That should be fun.  I hope we get some money so that we can finally open our joint account.  I think I’m going to open it with HSBC direct since the interest rate is 5.05% and we can mail in deposits if we need to.

OK, so, I’ll start by catching everyone up on what has happened so far. 

Mother’s Day….Mom, Megan (maid of honor), and I went to David’s Bridal to try on dresses.  (Megan had actually already bought her dress, this was for moi!)  Anyway, I loved the first dress I tried on, but I had already picked out others, so I put it aside and kept going.  I think I tried on 20+ dresses that day.  Well, every other dress that I tried on, I kept saying “I like the first one better”.  We decided that it was the one.  I’m so happy, I love it so much.  It really is the best dress for me and I can’t wait until it comes in.

The following Saturday….Vic and I went to my parents’ house for two reasons, one…my mom’s birthday, and two…to look at one last reception site.  While the site was absolutely beautiful (and perfect, for an outdoor wedding…which we didn’t want since the wedding in in October), it was just way to expensive!  If we had booked there we would have only been able to have like 60 guests!  Not exactly what we were planning.   Anyway, same day, we decided to go back up to the Amber Room in Danbury (for the 3rd time) to take another look.  We decided that we really did love it (along with being within our budget) and booked it that day.  I’m so excited and I can’t wait to really get into it all.

 Today….I am off to Bed Bath and Beyond after work to complete the registry details.  I will update tomorrow with that information.
