I was doing a little cake browsing tonight (planning on talking to a bakery or two next month), and I found a picture of almost exactly what I had in mind. I would want square layers instead of the hexagons, the brown ribbon, flat white icing (or maybe ivory...do you match your icing to your dress?!), and orange flowers of some sort. The lilies are nice.

As Sheryl Crow would say, a change will do you good. :-) They changed the floor at the Community Center just for our wedding! Well, not really...but it's pretty neat-o anyway!! Bye, bye concrete, hello smooth gray sparkly acrylic stuff. That's my own technical term, by the way...
See pictures below. There are still basketball court lines and basketball goals for that matter... But no more barren looking concrete. We haven't seen it in person yet, but I'm confident that anything would be an improvement. Thanks for the pics Dad!
I had some free time on my hands, which is rather hard to come by these days, so I made some changes to the blog! I found a cool way to change the background using digital scrapbooking, so my paper of choice right now is Christmas trees...as I'm sure you've noticed.
I also added a widget on the right that shows you a random sampling of books in my library. Since I absolutely LOVE books, I think it's the coolest thing ever!
Additionally, I added some of my favorite wedding links, a wedding countdown clock, and a visitor counter so I know how many peeps are checking out the blog. Especially since no one leaves comments anymore.. :-(
Did the guilt trip work??

our new skinner Christmas tree! I know this isn't wedding related, but Nate insisted we show off the tree. It went on a diet over the last year and lost a few inches. Ha. No, we bought a new one at Lowe's just last weekend, and got a fab deal on it. And, it's much smaller width-wise than our other one. We love it!
Note: You are not hallucinating. All the presents stacked under the tree aren't fake presents. They are actually real. Most are being shipped off to Sacramento THIS weekend!
