Sunday Scope and I looked at a couple more wedding venues, starting with the Fairwood Golf and Country Club, which is pretty much within walking distance of the house I grew up in. The Country Club was gorgeous inside and even more so outside – DEFINITELY a place for STUNNING wedding photos! My my my.
After a quick lunch at home, we drove out to Snoqualmie Falls to tour another potential wedding spot, The Salish Lodge. The Salish Lodge has a lavish reputation and I’d never stepped inside it before, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect….
Was it lovely? Yes. Was it the loveliest place we’d visited? No. Was the price tag lovely?…. Ummmmm…. how do I put this delicately? NO!!!! – it was probably twice as expensive as everywhere else we went and hefty price tags give me hives, so *annoying buzzer sound here* we scratched that one right off our list!
Then we walked over to the waterfall for some very damp sightseeing….
having a shower at visiting the Falls, we went back to my house and we started setting up my Christmas tree while watching National Lampoons Christmas Vacation.
Soon my daughter returned home from her dad’s and she started decorating the tree with me and Scope, and, I have to be honest, it was sooooooooooooo nice doing that, just the three of us! We were one little happy family right then doing our happy family stuff and feeling all happy familyish.
And here’s the end result….
For dinner, the three of us hung out with my mom and laughed at people getting hit on the crotch on AFV.
Then, most horribly and tragically, Monday morning kinda seemed to pounce out of the shadows at us. I don’t even know quite how it happened. It felt like Scope had just arrived and then suddenly *POOF* it was time to take him back to the airport.
We lingered in my house as long as we could. We stopped off at WalMart to buy Scope some bronze Space Needle figurines which he’s going to make into ornaments for his Christmas tree back home. We had a quick lunch.
Now we’re back to sending each other emails at work and talking for hours on the phone at night and counting down the days until December 30th when we’ll be together again.
It won’t be long.
It had better not be!!!!
