BIRTHDAY to SIS!
FRIDAY! As I ran errands today, my friend, Tony (who was in the LA
area for business), surprised me with an unexpected visit! He was
around the corner from Target...where I was hogging up the Kodak Picture
Maker machine...and kept me and Ashlyn company while I finished up
printing pictures. He was heading home this morning, but decided to
swing by and drop off some gifts. I wouldn't consider driving from
Beverly Hills to Irvine "swinging by", but that's exactly
the kind of person Tony is. He always goes out of his way. It was
Aric came home early from work. We had Ann & Phil's wedding rehersal in Pasadena. We picked up Chris' dress on the way and traffic was unbelievably bad that by the time we got to the church, I missed most of the rehersal. I was really embarassed and totally bummed out. =(
After rehersal, we headed to rehersal dinner in Arcadia. Ann & Phil treated all of us to an eight-course dinner at Mandarin Shanghai Restaurant. The food was really good...though after the fourth dish came out, I was too stuffed to eat. We hung out a bit after dinner while Ann & Phil presented the wedding party with gifts. All the groomsmen got these ultra cool personalized "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon's Green Destiny Sword" letter openers and all the bridesmaids got a personalized hand-knit throw. VERY COOL! Aric, Ashlyn, and I headed home around 10pm.
Pictures from tonight:
the time we got home, Ashlyn was very much asleep. We tucked her in
and waited for Wil, Bett, and Wing to arrive. They got in a little
after midnight. We stayed up snacking, talking, and watching "Charlie's
Angel" on DVD.
