This week I have a review of a photo studio for you. It’s a place we’ve all been, a place we keep going back to… the DMV. For starters, the wait was brutal. I sat there for an hour looking at the little ticket with my number on it like I was about to win the lottery. Confession: whenever my number gets called, (C-26 in this case), I have the strong urge to yell “BINGO”. But I never do.
Anyway, the person behind the counter was actually quite pleasant. She didn’t seem amused by me at all, although she did squeak out a courtesy laugh at one of my jokes of admittedly marginal comedic value. And the photo isn’t even awful, even though I didn’t think to make myself look cute even though I KNEW I was going to the DMV. All in all, I give the DMV Photo Studio 3 stars.
Now, on to more fun things: Christine’s Bridal Shower. I’m so excited to show you these photos because this is a very creative and fun shower that includes lots of personal touches. Christine loves to cook, so her shower had a cooking theme.
Let’s start with these awesome centerpieces. Instead of flowers, there were small potted herbs on the tables, with little sticks in them indicating what type of plant it is … mint, oregano, thyme…
Instead of signing a regular guestbook, the guests were asked to sign in a cookbook, next to a favorite recipe. Christine promised to invite them over for a dinner including their favorite recipe, which I thought was such a sign of what a giving and warm person she is. I absolutely loved tying this in to something to bring them together again in the future!
