Winter Wedding Expo

Hmm... so I suck at being a better blogger. I have absolutely no excuse, other than the fact that I am lazy... I mean, work has just been so busy and I have had such a blooming social life that I just haven't had the time to... oh, who am I kidding, I'm lazy and forgetful when it comes to being proactive with the blog.  I mean, I have done plenty of wedding things and plenty of other life-related things (like watch WE tv wedding Sundays on demand), but I just haven't taken the time to blog about them.  So I have done some thinking and I think I will make my February 2011 resolution to be a better blogger.  Let's see how this pans out..

Two weekends ago, or maybe it was three weekends ago and I don't want to think that I have really been that horrible about blogging, Hadley and I went to the Bridal Showcase at George Mason.  If you are engaged or think you will be engaged soon and want to feel incredibly overwhelmed and on the verge of traumatized, I highly recommend attending a bridal showcase.  It was awesome and terrifying all at the same time. On a side note: isn't it illegal for thirteen-year-olds to get married?  I thought so too, but I swear half of the girls in attendance that day looked like they were in middle school.  Don't believe me -- ask Hadley.

Overall I found the day to be very informative.  So informative in fact that I am not sure if I left there feeling like I was completely prepared and well on my way to having a successful wedding or if I left there feeling like I have done absolutely jack for my wedding.  All I know is that Hadley is a saint for going with me and I did not win any door prizes even though we put more than enough tickets into the raffle boxes.  That's not to say I didn't win anything.  One of the booths provided a game where you had to go to the 9 booths listed on a piece of paper, have someone from that booth sign off on the piece of paper and then you had to take the signed piece of paper back to the original booth and then you had to fill out a different piece of paper just to stand in line.  But then you got to spin the wheel.  It sounded very annoying and time consuming, so I made Hadley do it.
spinning the prize wheel!

And it's a good thing I did.  You know why?  Because I won $25 to a Salon Emage Day Spa in Warrenton, VA.  Sadly, I will probably never use it because Warrenton is over an hour away and it would cost me $25 just to go there.  Either way, the day was wonderful thanks to my wonderful MOH, Hadley.
