I’ve done everything today to put off work. Weeding, hedge trimming, cooking, laundry and now blogging. I haven’t made a decent update in awhile, and who knows what free time I would have at the new job. Speaking of which I need to look up the best way to get to work. Driving to Lewisville is not going to be fun. Everyone’s been giving me tips on which way to go, but I think tomorrow I’m just going to go down 121 all the way. I know it won’t be fun.
Anyway, this post is a week overdue, but I think it’s worthy of one. Sharon and Gene’s wedding. What a wedding. I woke up Saturday morning and drove into Richardson to pick up both Robert and Yung. I was totally dreading the drive down to Houston. I personally haven’t driven that kind of distance in so long, Brian usually does the driving. It wasn’t actually too bad, and got there at around 12:30 or 1. We even had time to stop by Walmart to buy some cheap wine to sneak into the wedding. By cheap, I mean Arbor Mist cheap. The entire weekend we were there, Robert kept claiming that Houston is a “hot mess”. I have to agree with him, it sucked! It takes us 40 minutes to get anywhere. On top of that, it was a really hot weekend. We all met up at Hanh’s house where we were bunking for the night, and got ready and headedoff to the church. I’m not sure where the church was in relation to all of Houston, but again it was far. :-p Anyway, we got there just in time to sit down as the ceremony was about to start. I think overall there were 400 or so guests. I have to say that the ceremony was beautiful. Not necessarily the decor, although the flowers were pretty, but the entire half hour or so was dedicated to the couple’s love of God. Their selection of music were all hymnals and their written vows were so sweet. Every teared up near the end when the couple were hugging the parents and grandparents.
We then headed to the hotel where the reception was held. There were some great hor d’oeurves and by the time we were done with those, I think some of us were already full. The reception started at 6, and I had the biggest steak dinner I’ve had in a while. Robert and Yung’s table busted open their bottle of Arbor Mist and of course got in trouble for it. :-) It was fun just seeing everyone again, particularly the people I haven’t seen since high school, like Kelvin and Joyuan. The night ended with everyone on the dance floor. Us seven girls and Robert were the only group left at the reception/dance floor, literally. We definitely partied it up. After nixing the idea of going to a club we all headed back to Hanh’s house to play board games till the wee hours of the night. The weekend ended with dim sum at Fung’s Kitchen.
Here are some pictures I got that actually turned out good:
