Last night, Philip and I went to our good friends' Ellen and Marcus's wedding. It was spectacular. The ceremony was held at this beautiful little chapel (where Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey got married, actually!), and the reception was held at this beautiful downtown Austin hotel. We had a great time. It is hard to pick a highlight. The wedding favors were a personal favorite of Philip's, as he did not take the sunglasses off all night long -- he said they made him feel invincible on the dance floor. (Well, it was either that or the beers!) The cake(s) were a personal favorite of mine. The groom's cake was a chocolate-chip cookie cake, and the wedding cake was delicious. What really made the night was the 80's rock band hired for the occasion. Those of you who have been at a wedding with Philip know how he likes to dance--well, these particular songs had him on the dance floor until the last note, and I have pictures to prove it! All in all, a great night, and I can't wait to see the pictures that come out of it. If this wedding is any indication of Ellen and Marcus's marriage, they are sure to have a blast for the next 60 years or so (which we already knew they would!) I'm attaching some pictures so you can see what a beautiful bride Ellen was, and also some of the details that made the night so great!

Today we paint the nursery. Wish us luck. We didn't have so much success in painting our own room (we had to use multiple cans, and one of the later ones was lighter than the first two, which we didn't know until it dried--we are still figuring out how to fix that one!), but will only TWO months left, and school looming back on the horizon, we definitely need to get cracking on getting this nursery done, or we will have a baby, and nowhere to put him! Speaking of baby, he is doing fine. Growing and stretching like crazy. I often find him stretching against my rib cage (not so much fun), but so far he hasn't kicked or jabbed too hard. He did have the hiccups this morning, and it was so cute! He definitely moves more than ever, and I'm sure that shows his likeness to his dad--as last night was a prime example!
