A Handful of Items
Item One: Arching in as topic one (oh ha, the puns!), I will be at the Annual AADE meeting in St. Louis this year. (My poor editor-in-chief is my travel companion. I hope she doesn't mind when I'm half on the moon from xanax for my fear of flying and rambling on nonsense about my cat until the medication wears off.) Will any of you be there? I'm very excited to participate in this event as a member of the dLife team. And I'm very excited to see the big ol' Arch.
Item Two: Back when we went rafting, the raft guides has some rogue kayakers who skipped ahead, perched themselves on the rocky sidewalls, and snapped photographs of the rafters as we passed by. Here is how we rolled:
Item Three: Wedding planning, though having taken a bit of a backseat to different work projects for both Chris and I, is in full swing. We've booked our reception hall and nailed down our actual wedding date, so now it's time for all the other stuff - like the photographer, the church, dresses, and deciding how many flowers is really "too many." Admittedly, I have no idea what I'm doing. I have several books and have consulted with The Knot on several occasions (only to notice that my post about Oliver's gas was linked from their discussion boards - I laughed until I cried), but time is going by so quickly and I fear I'm falling behind.
Our engagement party invitations came in, so that's all set to take place on August 18th (yay!), but aside from that, I'm sort of lost. How exactly do you find a photographer? (If anyone has any recommendations for a photographer in the RI area, I'd love to hear from you.) How far in advance do you need to find a wedding dress? How hard is it to wrangle all the bridesmaids into one style of dress or can I have varying styles along the same color theme? How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, were he so inclined?
Item Four: Social networking is all over the place these days. LinkedIn. Twitter. Facebook. Ning networks. MySpace. Whoa. (No, "whoa" isn't a social networking platform. At least not yet.) There are plenty of networking opportunities. I'm sure there are plenty that I have no clue about. Any new ones that you know about?
Item Five: I don't know if you caught this link on my sidebar, but I want one of these in the worst way. And I can't figure out why it appears to have a hand brake. Bizarre indeed!
