Tonight, Jay and I headed over to his parent’s house for dinner. A home-cooked meal made by someone other than me? You betcha!
Look at the pretty table decor. My mother-in-law, Rosemary, always does such a nice job with the presentation
Aren’t those flowers gorgeous?!? She actually got these rhododendrons from her backyard!
On the menu tonight was a yummy roast turkey
And some mashed potatoes…well, we tried our best to salvage what we could of them! They ended up getting a little over-cooked while boiling, which made them very watery. Since Rosemary isn’t used to making the spuds from scratch ( ) I did what I could to help out. They still ended up a little on the “thin” side, but the flavor turned out pretty yummy! Hey, if nothing else, the leftovers will make a great batch of potato pancakes, right?
I helped myself to a small serving of turkey, some mashies, & asparagus.
On the side, we also had some fresh, delicious salads. Why is it that salad always tastes better when someone else makes it?!? I drizzled mine with a little balsamic vinegar. YUMM!
After dinner, we all ended up watching our Wedding Video!! It had been a while since I watched it last (a couple weeks) so apparently I was no longer desensitized to the whole thing. Yup, the tears were a-flowin! Umm, I mean…uhh…those darn allergies were kickin’ in again…
I LOVE watching our video – I swear I think I could watch it every day. I’m so glad that we ended up making the decision to have a videographer at our wedding. I’ve heard many people who decided not to get one, say that they wish they had in the end. It just captured so many memories that a photograph just can’t hold. The first time we watched it, I was amazed at how much I actually didn’t even remember from that day. It goes by SO.FAST. Personally, I think if you’re getting married, and you have the room in your budget, you should go for it!
If you’re married, did you have a videographer at your wedding? If you’re planning a wedding, have you decided whether or not to have a videographer?
We ended up checking out a bunch of different ones, but we were so happy with who we chose to go with, Videocraft. They did a wonderful job, were very easy to work with, and were completely professional with their work!
I’m EXHAUSTED…off to bed! Goodnight!
