A gathering of ideas, rants, reflections leading up to the big day

Bueno! I'm back!

We had such a great time in Mexico City! We really really had a great time. And surprisingly, I got a lot of wedding stuff purchased. It is only surprising cause I didn't plan on it, but since we are using Mexican paper flowers as part of our theme, it's a wonder that we purchased Mexican paper flowers in MEXICO. Sometimes I am so obtuse!

We found this wonderful vendor in our favorite market who we purchased 19 flowers from for $35. 9 of the flowers are HUGE. I mean bigger than my head huge (but easy to transport). We picked out 8, but the lady liked me and since I kept picking out more things to buy, she just gave me the 9th for free! We also got 10 (all that they had) Kelly green paper flowers that are pretty detailed, nicer than I can make.

We also got two decorative items for the dessert table including what would be a cake topper if we had a cake (pictures soon).

We ate, we drank, we laughed, we smoked Cuban cigars. Most of all we recharged.
