Liz's New Bottle

So. This was a long trip, and a tiring one but fun and happy as well. I'm going to divide it into three parts: Pre-Wedding (or Liz's New Bottle), the Wedding (or the Bridesmaid's Boogie) and Post-Wedding (or Its All About the Hat). So let's begin with Liz's New Bottle.

Liz's New Bottle

So I arrived Wednesday afternoon and Tommy picked me up with a wonderful cardboard sign that said Lizard (Lizz-Arhd in pirate speak). Then we went and sat with Jess at work. I was very pleased to be able to see where Jess was working. Ticket sales are fun!! Especially when Jess answered the phone in a British accent. Jess and Tommy took me to the Diner which was ultra-fabulous and then I got to see Jess's apartment. Which she is moving out of but I was really glad to have seen it since she talked so much about it and the area that she lived in. Both Jess's car and Jess's apartment were without air conditioning and it was hot but we were mostly comfortable altough it had been cool in DC so I had a little hard time adjusting. Tommy finally left in the evening and Jess and I rushed to show each other our dresses as soon as he left and then we talked and got caught up. The next day Jess and I did apartment cleaning stuff and went shopping. Which. Is where the bottle comes in. We went to this awesome grocery store and were looking at vinegar bottles and I was trying to replicate this cool bottle Timmy bought Jess from the Faire and then I saw my bottle. A dark olive green bottle of basalmic vinegar with a cork. 10$. We also picked up Sage Darby cheese, blueberries and another type of cheese for Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting. We also picked up party supplies and Jess's garter.

Jess's family arrived later in the day and us girl's took off for Jess's Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting. Which was a little difficult to arrange from DC and small but very fun. Especially after the spontaneous Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting showed up and played three songs for us including La Cucaracha and the Wedding March/Funeral Dirge. Jess got lots of cool stuff including a castle shaped cake pan, candle sticks and candles (from me) towels, Pirates of the Carribean M&Ms and tons of other cool stuff that I can't remember. Jess's sister Sarah came up with some games and we played bridal bingo while Jess opened her gifts. I totally cheated and added wrapping paper, towels, more towels and bows and ribbons to my bingo sheet. She also brough the most awesome white ball cap that said "Bride" on it. Jess wore it for the next two days!! It was awesome. Friday we had to get ready to move down to the Invasion Hotel near the Faire and then actually get down there. Jess and I had an awesome time singing Lost Boy songs on the way down. We (the bride and bridemaid's Sarah, me and Kat)got Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting and Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting. Then we went to the Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting at Faire after hours!!! The minister was really funny and it was cool seeing the faire deserted. Then the Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting.

To end the day Jess, Kat (one of the bridesmaids) and I stayed up really late. I think Jess was a little nervous and I was just being my regular night owl self. Anywho. KAt and I shouldn't have been introduced because we are evil together. We did Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting and Jess threatened to kill KAt because KAt got an annoying song stuck in her head. We sang "warrior" though and finally fell to sleep.

Thus ends the pre-wedding portion and Liz's New Bottle.


Ooh, awesome! I can't wait to hear more about it!!
We missed you!! Jess mentioned several times how she wished you'd been able to make it down. More updates soon.
I know! I wanted to come so badly.
