MOB Redux Update: Bridals and Operas

Babs and I got to see her bridal portraits at the photographer's studio yesterday. So beautiful!! There were some cute candid shots of Portia and Babs together because Portia went along on the shoot to lend a hand.

We're counting down to the last two weeks before W-Day and everything is falling into place quite nicely. The MOB does wake up at night thinking of little details that still need to be addressed, and her dentist remarked at this week's check-up that her inside lip was looking pretty chewed up, but all in all she's feeling pretty good and looking forward to the big day.

This weekend there will be a brief Wedding Planning Time Out for the opening night of Queen of Spades at Houston Grand Opera. Our precious Catherine has a small part so my sister, brother and sister-in-law are coming from San Antonio for the performance followed by a reception at El Jefe's law firm.

Catherine has been learning Russian with a private tutor all year to prepare for the role. Thank heaven HGO projects subtitles in English! It's a very lOOOOng opera--3 1/2 hours. I'm not sure we can keep El Jefe up past his bedtime that late. I look at it as payback for all the sports events I've had to sit through over the years. He'll still owe me.

Hmmmm, reception aftewards at the law firm. No. This won't cost you a single sports-related brownie point. He will be too proud of his niece to bill them. Wait a minute, he's a tall building lawyer. . . .

what happened to the post about sparklers? I popped over from google reader to say that I was at Houston Wedding this weekend with bubbles and (in spite of the open bar) there was no spillage, the bubbles were beautiful, and we had a good time with them too. No soap stains on clothes, no spills, no slips--and we even blew bubbles while arranged down a staircase that the bride and groom had to come down and then up! So if you choose bubbles, they can be okay. :-)

Teri, the post is back up now. Thanks so much for your comment. I guess I was concerned because I've never been to a wedding that used bubbles so I'm happy to hear you thought it worked well. Babs is inclined to do the bubbles so unless we get a suggestion we like better that's probably what we'll do.
