It Won’t Be Long. IT HAD BETTER NOT BE!!!!

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….

After 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.

*giddy glow*

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!!!!

Sorry about that.

Great tree. And excellent pictures. I'd take the waterfall over the wasteland that is the South any day of the week.

I know you'll find exactly the right place! And Dec 30th is just mere nanoseconds away. And y'all are just so darned cute. Can't get over it. Pretty pretty tree. I finished putting up my 4th tree on Tues. Last one I think. -Diane

I really like the idea of getting married back in your childhood neighborhood. Has a "circle of life" feel to it.

Great. Now I will be singing "hakuna matata" all day.

momcat said...

Not long now Cora. Tree looks fantastic. Hope you find the best venue soon.

Sassy Britches said...

How thrilling! I'm sure after a bit it's a pain in the keester to keep touring, but the idea of finding your wedding venue is too exciting! Love the tree and the family moment--more of those to come very soon. :)

Soda and Candy said...

So who is moving when y'all get hitched?

PS - LOVE the top-of-the-tree star.

Sue said...

I love your story... your tree is beautiful.

The time will go quickly, it won't be long before you are together all the time.


BeckEye said...

I don't know if I've spaced on this info or what, but I assume this will not be a long-distance marriage! Who's moving where?

SkylersDad said...

Your tree looks great, and you know it really doesn't matter where you get married you know...

The important thing is that you have found each other, and you are happy.

When I feel crummy, I come here and feel the LOVE.
It's friggin awesome.

What an awesome tree! I "love" the star tree topper.

But I have a question - what's that thing growing out of your head in the last picture? ; )

And it won't be long at all!

WendyB said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. That's the best looking tree ever. For a second, I thought you were fooling with us and had posted a picture out of a magazine.
