    Now you two sure do know how to have fun!
Great pics- thnx for sharing.
We got about 2 ft of the nasty white stuff here in Narragansett.
We were lucky- did not lose heat, water or power (just the effin Cox bundle of phone, internet and cable) - but my elderly inlaws lost everything and refuse to go to a shelter or hotel so my poor dh has spent hours caring for them (a cranky old generator- now dead- and a wood burning furnace in the basement).
Just got back online about an hour ago.
Poor Helene! Hope they got off today.

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Well, the Big Day has already come and gone. Yesterday was the Big, Beautiful Wedding of my eldest brother out in Los Angeles. His fiance tapped me to be her Maid (ok, MATRON) of Honor, and it was a 1965-themed wedding. Here are just a coupla pics from wedding weekend:

    You look wonderful....and I LOVE the wedding theme! I was born in 1965, so my parents 'young' pics as newlyweds resemble these to a 'T'!

Glad it went well....now you and DH can sit still for a while and catch your breath!!!

Alaska and West Coast 2012

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

My husband and I, along with my parents, just returned from a wonderful ten-day Alaska cruisetour, which was followed by Memorial Day weekend in my hometown, San Diego, California. Here are some photos to tell the story...

Our trip started out at Lake Tapps, Washington, where DH's family lives, about 25 minutes south of Seattle. Here is Mount Rainier, in all her glory:



On the second evening of the cruise, here DH and I are steppin' out on Formal Night:



Yours truly, on Auke Bay, in Juneau, Alaska, enjoying a whale watch:



Tail fin of a humpback whale:



Me, Mum 'n' Dad enjoying the scenery at College Fjord:




Me and my Beloved:



Stunning colors:



Train ride to Denali National Park:



Majestic Mount McKinley:



After the ten-day cruisetour, we headed down to San Diego and, among other fun activities, I hosted a bridal shower tea for my soon-to-be-SIL:

    Thank you for sharing your amazing photos! You and your DH make a great looking couple and you look stunning in your formal dress photo. The colour really suits you and I like the way your DH is wearing a matching shirt.

Glad you enjoyed the vacation. Looks like the bridal shower went well too!

Lovely Elegant Wedding

Saturday, November 12, 2011

On 11.11.11 my husband and I attended the wedding of a co-worker of his. It was a lovely evening nuptial Mass and a beautiful, festive reception. We had a wonderful time, and I thought I'd share a few photos of us:

This is me (of course!) in the hotel room, getting ready to head out:



Here we are trying our best to fit in with the big Italian families hosting the event, even tho' DH is German and I'm Portuguese! Ha!



Happy happy!



Ok, I admit, I'm proud of the Junk in my Trunk!



A wonderful time was had by all!
