By the time you’re reading this, I’ll probably be on a plane… TO WEDDING LAND!!! 😀
So as I leave my adoptive country for my month-o-bliss, I’d like to give special thanks to my friends in La Serena – the ones Mr. Bear Cub and I live with (in a fishbowl of expats!), the ones we work with (in the same fishbowl…), and the ones who care about us enough to throw us a surprise wedding shower!!!
Our neighbors in expat-ville had invited us over to their home a few weekends ago ostensibly for “fried chicken”. You don’t get fried chicken in Chile. We were biting. Especially since we had planned to run 17 miles beforehand! Anything fried tastes HEAVENLY after 17 miles on asphalt!
So we popped down to their home with a party-food offering in hand, and this is what we saw:
I couldn’t believe our sweet friends here threw a party all for us! I’m not the easiest person to surprise! Mr. Bear Cub claims we must have been COMPLETELY oblivious to the plans the entire time. I’ve never been so thankful for good friends and my own spacey-ness. 🙂
There wasn’t, in fact, fried chicken! But there were freshly-BBQ’d ribs! 😀
Let the celebration begin!
Was your “bridal” shower more of a “wedding” shower/celebration? Were you as completely shocked and elated as Mr. BC and I were??
