The wedding is over without any major hitches. The only minor thing that went wrong was the cake - it was supposed to be white chocolate raspberry but the flighty cake girl made white cake with white icing. It was still good, just not what we had agreed on. Guess that's what happens when you find someone on Craig's List... Since I had to return the cake stand to her I mentioned the flavor mishap to her. She ended up making me and Jeremy a 6 inch white chocolate raspberry cake for our one year anniversary. We decided, however, to go ahead and eat it now since we have the white cake for our anniversary and we'd rather eat the good cake when it's still good and not frozen and a year old.
It's. very. good. I'm a little disappointed we couldn't have had it at the wedding. But I guess since no one knows how good it is but us, they don't know what they're missing. Plus, Jeremy made a good point - had we had it at the wedding we would have only eaten one slice apiece. But, since she screwed up, we get the six inch cake to ourselves! More than a slice apiece!
Yesterday we went to spend all the gift cards we got for Target and Bed Bath and Beyond, where we were registered. After the wedding we get 10% off our registry, but it's a one time deal only. We made lists of the stuff we really wanted and set out to shop. Target was easy. We printed the registry, it said whether or not the items were in the store, and what aisles everything was in. We were in and out pretty quickly.
Bed Bath and Beyond, however, was a different story. We set out to buy 6 things. Because of a poor registry system and incompetent staff it took us much longer there than at Target where we easily bought 5 times as many items. I would highly recommend shopping and/or registering at Target over Bed Bath and Beyond any day.
Tomorrow I start back in the academic world. I had a completely pointless orientation Friday. We learned out to check our email! And use blackboard! Woohoo! It looks like I'll be pretty busy this month, though. Not sure how I feel about that yet.
