"it's a date!"

first, i must say that i have been using the Moroccan oil from my hair stylist & i absolutely love it. the smell alone made me fall in love! i highly recommend it!

next, i finished reading Gone With a Handsomer Man. it was a very fun, light, mystery...a good beach read with a cliffhanger of an ending. i'm hoping there will be a sequel!

and now on to the fun stuff!!

last night shawn and i attended the "it's a date" expo at the franklin institute.  upon arrival we were given free passes for the mummy exhibit, which was really awesome! after viewing the mummies, we went to the expo where we were treated to endless drinks & hor d'oeuvres! we tasted risotto cakes, julienne vegetables, beef tenderloin, different cheeses, olives, fruit, grilled shrimp & baby spinach salad, fresh tuna, miniature philly cheese steaks, lobster clusters, chicken won tons, etc, etc, etc!

while we sipped on our champagne we were able to walk through the many exhibits to gain some info on photographers, florists, event planners, bands, djs, trolleys, honeymoon, invitations, wedding dresses, tuxes, cakes,  and unique gift ideas...all while listening to eddie bruce

they were amazing!

shawn & i are very interested in using secrets for our honeymoon.  take a look at these beautiful images!!

we also received some free gifts: a wine stopper, a candle, magazines, and several offers for upgraded rooms or discounted services just for attending last night!

we had the best time! and now let the planning begin!
...speaking of that - we have selected a date (as long as it is available wherever we choose to have our reception) FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2012!

we are so excited to start planning & i'm so excited to be able to blog my experience!
