I'm still working on getting together the wedding recap post from my Brother-in-Law's wedding. But I wanted to share a couple of things first...
1st - The gift!
Thanks for all of your advice on what to add to the Newlywed Survival Kit wedding gif!
I ended up adding a couple of games that I knew they wanted to add a little more fun to gift! I wanted to add a bottle of wine too, but I know she's not a big drinker so I skipped that.
Here's the final contents of the gift:
Cookbook, devotional, Dave Ramsey book, Bar Keeper's Friend, Skip-Bo, Phase 10, and Calphalon dish towel.
And here's how it looked all packaged up in a very functional gift bag (a cleaning bucket!)
I wrote out a explanation of the gift that you can read here. I hope they loved this gift as much as I did.
2nd - My trip to the ER.
As luck would have it, it turned out that a friend of the Mr's from High School was also getting married on the same night in Portland as his brother! Since Brother-in-Law's wedding ended early we had time to visit the other wedding, which was so much fun!
Well, toward the end of the night my feet were really hurting, so I decided to take off my shoes to dance (dumb!). I guess someone had broken a glass and I ended up cutting my foot really bad on the broken glass. It just kept bleeding and bleeding (so gross), so we decided to go to the ER to see if I needed stitches.
So two hours and several hundred dollars later, I left the Downtown Portland ER with seven stitches in my big toe. :(
The worst part was that I didn't get to go skiing on Mt. Hood because my foot hurt too bad and I didn't want to injure it more. Giant bummer!
The moral of the story -- always bring sandals to change into!
