CONGRATULATIONS to Harvey & Jeanette!
I was supposed to meet with Kev for lunch today but plans got kind of messed up. I left an apologetic message on their celly (in a friendly "sorry-I'm-a-flake" voice)...and hoped that I didn't ruin their first impression of me. =/ I was really disappointed...but Kev, if you're reading this, I'll make it up to you guys.
This morning my family and I had brunch at Dynasty Seafood in San Jose for dim sum. Unfortunately today is the 15th of the lunar calendar...which means "NO MEAT"! It was torture watching everyone else eat shrimp sui mai, chicken feet, and other meaty delights. My sisters, mom, and I stuck with our leafy greens, plain white buns, and vegetarian rolls. *sigh* Cin and Matty who spent the night at Wil and Tony's joined us. Cin would occasionally look over at me and mouth the words, "it's not that good" as she sank her teeth into a shrimp dumpling. Thanks, girl! =)
The rest of the afternoon was spent packing and consolidating all of Ashlyn's stuff...clothes, toys, books, etc...before Harvey's wedding. I really don't know how we're going to lug all this stuff home. *Ugh* By 4pm, we left for Harvey and Jeanette's wedding. Harvey, my neighbor from across the street, is finally tying the knot. This is the same guy my family was trying to hook me up with five years ago.
wedding was at The Fairmont in San Jose. It was a small ceremony and
reception, but very elaborate. The ceremony was short, sweet, and
simple. The reception was breathtaking....the dining room was transformed
into a park, including a wishing well, park bench, and park lamps.
It was really cute. The bride and groom gave each guest a different
party favor. We watched a beautifully choreographed First Dance (thanks
to my mom) and a whimsical wedding party dance to Aaliyah's "Journey
to the Past" song (from the "Anastasia" Soundtrack).
We also watched a slideshow and a videotape of the proposal.
The cute red strappy shoes I wore for the wedding offered no ankle support, and I think I tweaked my ankle. =( OUCH! It swelled up toward the end of the night, and I'm all gimpy now. Hopefully it'll be all better tomorrow. Hope you had a nice weekend!
