On to a lighter note:
My daughter and I attended our first Bridal Showcase. It was held at Cal Expo in Sacramento (the state fairgrounds). It was very well put together and had tons of venues, florists, caterers, dresses, photographers and Tusedoes presented.
We arrived early and were in the first 30 or 40 people to get in. We didn't run in to much of a crowd until about an hour in. As each of the rooms got more and more crowded we would move to the next room.
We never did smile so much all at one time. They put a little sticker on each of the brides and every person said "Congratulations" to Daughter.
We watched a fashion show, but didn't see any dresses that inspired her. She has been checking the magazines and has an appointment to try on dresses for the first time next week. It makes her more nervous to think about trying on dresses than wearing a big diamond on her ring!
I'll keep you posted on the happenings as the plans progress. Of course the wedding isn't until late summer 2012, after they have both graduated from college.
Thanks for stopping by,
