Engagement party Jan 30, 1993...




Well it's Friday and time for Friday Photo Flashback.
Since it's a week before my wedding anniversary...
I felt the need to showcase some of the madness I was knee deep in
before the wedding.

My parents finally told me they weren't spending any extra money...
so I got a part time job to pay for my flowers...
after working 8 hours I worked another 4...
just to pay for all the lilies I thought I had to have...
(you'll see some of that madness next week...)

My poor hubby (my finance then) was mindlessly dragged from
store to seamstress... to mall to wherever...

Here we are...
at a party my mom threw for us being engaged.
Look at the table...my mom had a program for the
party...
OK that's "Foo foo!" but she doesn't want lots of lilies... ha!

I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree...

I remember "dressing" my poor husband for the dinner...
he really didn't want a "slinky" shirt...
but he finally consented...

He just didn't know what he was getting himself into...
relatives were scheduled to start arriving in next afternoon...

















Oh...for more Flashback fun see Alicia's!
