Yesterday, Mr. Puffer surprised me with roses. You have to love a man who makes a special trip to the store on his way home just because he knows you’ve had a rough day and wants to see you smile. As Thoreau said, “The Earth laughs in flowers,” and those gorgeous blooms definitely put a smile on my face. I took it as a sign that a florist post was definitely long overdue.
While my closet is filled with black (and more black), Mr. B-Cat is typically dressed in fun patterns and bright colors. When we go out together we usually look like extras from two completely different movies. His: a feel-good ’80s teen movie, and mine: a low budget horror flick. He was never going to be the kind of groom who would procrastinate on his outfit or defer to the bride for what to wear. Honestly, he was just as excited as I was to pick his clothes for the wedding.

And if he were getting married to himself, he says his wedding would probably have looked all happy and colorful like this: … read more
The majority of our wedding planning began with figuring out what we didn’t want so that we could narrow in on what we did want for the wedding. (Which I’ve shared in hopes of helping other brides find things that they might like for their own wedding; I didn’t want all the research to go to waste!) After we decided to go with the courthouse, Mr. Sugar Cube and I knew that we wanted to make sure our guests knew how much we love them, how much time we knew they were devoting to the two of us by giving up their weekend, and how much we appreciated it. After all, we couldn’t just say “Hey, thanks guys for coming to watch us be all lovey-dovey and commit our lives to one another forever, we love you. See you later; drive safe!”
We couldn’t think of a better way to show our appreciation than with food, as Mr. Sugar Cube and I love food. (Who doesn’t?!)

It took about 5 to 10 minutes for all of our guests to clear out and head over to the cocktail hour. This was perfect, because our ceremony ended at 5:40 or so and the cocktail hour was starting at 6:00 just two miles down the road. Once the room was empty, we headed back inside to talk to our officiants and take some group pictures.
Now you didn’t think I’d really go and leave the ‘Bee without a proper goodbye, did you? Of course not! I just had to delay my sign-off for a for a while, because we had a little something coming up that I just had to share with you…
That’s right! Mrs. Pyramid visited the Great Pyramids!
