Hello, hello!  We have had a lovely weekend and it seems to be taking us to the next weekend to recover!  Sadly I took very few pictures, but there are a few iPhone photos from Doug and one photo borrowed from Facebook that will hopefully give you some idea of how our weekend went!


Outfit #1:
Dress: Advance 5971 bodice plus a circle skirt
Hair Flowers: Icing
Petticoat: Evangeline's
Belt: Target
Shoes: Gift from Tiffany
Costume Jewelry Set: from my Grandmother


We managed to transport the cake to Anna & Jason's wedding without much incident, and I did the final decorating and assembly at the wedding venue once we arrived.  Much to my surprise, the other desserts that were mentioned in the planning stages never materialized (yikes!) but thankfully the cake was very rich and the party very small so we cut thin slices and everything turned out OK.


It was a beautiful event, and I am terribly impatient to see the photos from the actual photographer.  This picture of the happy couple & their cake is courtesy of the Mother of the Groom via Facebook.

Anyway, with our festivities accomplished, Doug and I got up bright and early the next morning & headed off for Disneyland!


It was a bit more crowded than we expected, since we forgot that Monday was a holiday, but we had loads of fun anyway.  We took in all the Halloween-bedecked sights, ate spiced pumpkin fritters, met the Evil Queen from Snow White, watched many shows, and went on lots of rides.


Doug got to wear a birthday pin & wish wished a happy birthday by just about every cast member we encountered.  The weather was surprisingly pleasant and not as scorchingly hot as Southern California can often be.


Outfit #2 (which attracted many many compliments!)

Shirt: Anchor Blue
Camisole: Charlotte Russe
Skirt: Made by moi, basic circle
Shoes: Sofft pumps from Goodwill
Bangles: Various
Hair Flower: Icing
Moonglow Lucite Necklace & Earring Set: From Grandma
