Stephanie and Nicky have known each other since the 2nd grade. They have been friends since then. Finally, a few years ago, it started to blossom in to something else. Not only is Nicky perfect for her, he's perfect for US!!! Let me explain.While we were on our ski trip last week, Steph emailed us that they wanted to come over to watch the Superbowl with us. We didn't get home until about 3:30, but I knew I could put something together without having to stop at the grocery store. I've always said, give me a stocked pantry and I can pull a party together in an hour. They brought queso and beer. I added crab spread, bbq meatballs and toasted ravioli---perfect football fare.
When they arrived, I said that I was so glad they came. With my recent traveling, I haven't had much of a chance to catch up with the girls. Steph said that they had considered inviting a few friends over but Nicky said, "why don't we just hang out with your parents." How perfect is that? There's nothing we like better than when any of the family wants to "hang" with us. We'll take it any time!! I'm just glad that Nicky feels such a part of the family that he is comfortable being with us.
The wedding is planned for Feb. 15---small and intimate. Still, I have a lot of fun ideas that I have planned---all of which I'd like to share here. BUT, we are having a big party in St. Louis in June just for our family---and I'm from a BIG one. I plan to recreate the same things we're doing here---then. I kind of hate to spoil the surprise, so I'll just share a few things.
It won't be long now...
