My co-chairs and I, Amy & Jen, midway through the night. We had such a blast.
We are all still reeling in the headiness of it. The venue was gorgeous. The music rocked the house. Thank you a million time to the amazing, talented, Jimmy Dee Music, Westchester's Best of 2012 Wedding Providers (or something of that magnitude - it's on their homepage, check them out!). The casino tables were full on busy. The prizes were out of this world.
The feedback is incredibly favorable, so favorable that, yes, even I conceded we HAVE to do it again next year. The people who know me and read this blog are not that surprised...
Happy St. Patrick's Day
After sleeping to the 'o so late hour of 8:30am (got to bed after 2:00am) I am happy to say I did get some tradition on. After three cups of coffee. And oatmeal. At Amy's. While doing a postmortem on LIVE in her kitchen. And organizing the raffle prizes in her garage that were leftover from last night.
Corned Beef - check
Cabbage - no thank you
Potatoes - dirty mashed
Carrots - check
Irish Soda Bread - check
We went and paid our respects to Claire's mom and the family. Many of us in the funeral home proudly wore green to honor Pat and the family. I saw more than one shamrock scarf and Irish knit sweater. She will be dearly missed.
My favorite sight of the day? While driving by McDonald's I witnessed a young man in a kilt sipping a shamrock shake. It made me giggle.
