Oh JoyOh Joy

What, are you...sixteen?

Last night, Melanie and I went to the Bloomingdale's/InStyle Magazine Wedding Party event..a bridal affair showing off various vendors, products, etc...

-unexpected free food like wedding cake, butternut squash soup from The Four Seasons, summer rolls, tuna tartare, chocolate covered strawberries, and champagne!
-saw some very lovely dishes by Missoni, Kate Spade, and Ralph Lauren
-big goody bags with Vera Wang shot glass/bud vase, navy blue stick umbrella with cool wooden handle, and cute canvas tote bag with lemon yellow bottom
-free set of Ralph Lauren martini glasses {definitely the score of the night!}
-received two compliments on my ring by women who stopped me and asked to see it
-Melanie won a door prize...bridal jewelry compromised of a necklace and earrings made of cubic zirconia. I told her if she wins the honeymoon vacation, she's taking me (not her boyfriend). I was the one who dragged her there.

-a wedding coordinator gave me a smelly votive candle. The scent was "Wedding Day". If that's what my wedding day is going to smell like, Bob and I are bringing Febreeze with us.
-no fashion show as I had hoped. Just two girls walking around in wedding dresses holding up cards saying, "Find this dress at Bloomingdale's." I thought maybe the dresses were from Wal-mart.
-a photographer told me, "You can't be getting MARRIED! What, are you sixteen?" No, but thanks for being the 208th person to tell me I look younger than I am.
-I did not win ANY of the door prizes...not even the Vera Wang Christmas ornament that a Jewish girl won but forfeited for obvious reasons. My name is still in the drawing for the honeymoon vacation, so maybe? Or not.
