The Best Weekend. Ever.

Mr. Parks and I just returned from the most incredible weekend we have ever had. Hands down, I am on complete sensory overload from the sheer awesomeness of our brief (yet monumental) celebratory sojourn to Vegas. My best friend and maid of honor, Becca, put together a weekend that I will never, ever forget, and it will never be created quite like that again. That is, unless Mr. Parks and I have another bachelor/bachelorette party, assemble a geographically diverse group of people in the most fun city ever, and get surprised by some kick ass Brits!! We had college roommates, elementary school best friends, all of their new significant others, family, almost-family, and friends that are so close they’re family. I was so happy to share this time with everyone that I couldn’t help but get tears of joy in my eyes on more than a few occasions. It made me feel like all is right in the world to see all of these people together in one place, all laughing while losing money! The jokes were going off like firecrackers, and damn, everyone was ON!!!!There are many ways to be lucky in life, to be rich in this world. But Mr. Parks and I are the luckiest and richest ever, because we have so many wonderful people who care about us and who we care about. That is absolutely the best feeling in the world! We can’t wait until the wedding – we will get to have all of these wonderful people AND more to share this awesome time with!!! Thank you everyone for making this trip for us and celebrating our pure joy at getting married! We know you all have a lot going on right now (especially those of you who are also planning weddings!), and it means a LOT to us that you’d all take the time to make this weekend so special. We will never, ever forget it. We LOVE YOU ALL!!!! PICS OF VEGAS HERE.

vegas, baby and some other stuff…

so we finally squared away our bachelor/bachelorette bash and it couldn’t get any better!! a big thank you to becca for dealing with all of the details, and to andy for offering support and insight. it’s going to be a rockin’ good time…we’re staying at mandalay bay, and i am probably too excited about the backstage shark reef tour.

so i feel really bad about not blogging for so long…a lot has been going on, and i want to ease back into the routine of using this venue to share what is going on in our lives – especially now with the wedding and everything. i want to continue our virtual life scrapbook, and i don’t want to leave out all of the good stuff going on now.

weddings are full time jobs – thank god for my mom. and for mr. park’s annoyingly neurotic, yet endearing knack/obsession with striking the perfect design. without him, we’d probably be eating off of paper plates, surrounded by a horrid mismatched color palette. i am gravely lacking in this department, and he frequently looks completely stunned by some of my original “ideas.” i like to think of them as unique little quirks…mr. parks thinks of them as terrible taste!!! 🙂

i have a hundred new observations on the world of over the top party planning, and i promise to start sharing on a regular basis. i fell asleep early tonight, then woke up to “driving rain” at about 2:00 and decided it was the prime time to roll out a little blog. i’m glad to be back – i miss this creative outlet that thrives on the silly nuances of life that we observe in our daily routines. thank god for all of the infinitely interesting twists that are out there, waiting to be discovered among everyday events that are camouflaged in a suit of the mundane.
