THIS is what we're going for... (without the watermark)

You know what's really weird? I don't even particularly like red or orange. But I didn't really think I could pull off something classy like chocolate and lavender.

Inspiration via real simple and the knot.
The Kiwi Collection has proven to be an interesting resource while researching locations for our celebration. Someday when we're rich beyond our wildest dreams we'll visit all of these places.

(We were thinking Dubai for the wedding but Haverly's already been there. What fun would that be? ;-)


as predicted...

Jennifer is a far better photographer than Thom and I.

drunken sundays

the boys enjoy the view

Balmy Road Murals

the curviest street around

The loud sea lions at Pier 39.

Sarah works right by the Ferry Building - a wealth of yummy food.

I'm sure Jen's pictures are much better than mine. And when she uploads hers I'll update. But we had a great time at a bunch of different vineyards in Sonoma.

prom never had it so good

all princesses in our own right

the trials and tribulations of jetblue

The flight over to SF was a little trying without the entertainment (aka babysitter) of the television. Thom finished his whole book on the way over.

Unhappy Thom.

No TV on a 6 hour flight.

A vomit bag to cover the flashing screen.

a little inspiration

We're looking to take a trip to the location of choice in the near future to gather some more information and make some decisions. But, in the meantime, I've been talking to some hotels to determine if we can afford to be as fancy as we'd like to be. And doing some research on the indigenous wildlife and culture.

Some ideas for invitations and place cards. You can click on the image to make it significantly larger.

Dahlias are the flower of Mexico (hint, hint). And they come in so many variations.

Mexican Cactus Flower

For the record, I reserve the right to change my mind a hundred times (we're in no rush here) but I'm thinking I may wear a white dress (gasp) and then have red bridesmaid attire. Clearly I'm getting more traditional in my old age. The color scheme would be rich, fiery colors (reds, oranges, a touch of yellow) to go with the spicy surroundings.

Did I hear "theme party" anyone? I briefly threatened to have a Dirty Dancing themed wedding. One of my co-workers passed out at that suggestion. I guess that might be tacky ;-) But for the rehearsal dinner - all bets are off. Dirty Dancing Havana Nights perhaps?

a few days away

We've been hanging out in San Francisco the past few days with Sarah & Andy and Jen & Dirk. When we get home (on Monday) I'll post some of our actual pictures (although I'm sure Jen's will be better...).

But we've had a great time eating, touring Sonoma and roaming the city. And - most importantly - not being at work!
