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.

Mr. Ginsberg as master of ceremonies?

We met with a potential officiant to marry us today, and much to our pleasant surprise it was Allen Ginsberg – no not really of course but if he had a twin…I couldn’t help wondering if he owned a bookstore in San Francisco. In any case, he seemed pleasant enough with a touch space cadet mentality…sounds like a fit for us…

wedding things and anniversaries

mr. parks and i are closing in on our three year anniversary!  i may have mentioned this before, but it’s weird how you just start over counting the years together once you get married.  there should be some other way of describing our time together, like if you’ve been married for four years and were together for three before that, you say you’ve been together for four dash three or something.  sorry, stupid thought…

anyway, the wedding planning is going ok (i think) – our wedding coordinator will tell us for sure on wednesday.  i’ve been so proyd of us for setting a date that i felt like we could take a couple of weeks off.  apparently you’re never “off.”  there is always a ton of stuff to do.  i’ve started writing in the bride’s diary that mr. parks’ family gave me.  it’s going to be so fun to look back on it one day!  just like our blog – it’s incredible to scroll through the posts and pictures, and to see all that we have done together since the time that we started it – about a year and a half ago.  this is better than any scrapbook (especially considering that we would never make a scrapbook, as much as we’d like to).

ok – i’m going to go.  i’m at work and just wanted to write a quick little update.  speaking of work, i love it and i love working with my dad!  my first time on a private jet wasn’t so bad, either!! 

oh yeah – we’re going to chicago this weekend to see the band travis!!!  it’s going to be amazing – we’ll do our review when we get back!!
