What a Wonderful Friday

Friday was a fabulous day. My classes finished up around noon and then I had a leisurely lunch at the new Sandella's that just opend up on campus. Have you ever been to one? They have the most delicious paninis, wraps and quesadillas.

My wonderful roomate helped me to put together one of my invitations so I could get it weighed and order postage.

Then we went shopping and I bought a paper mache mailbox that I want to decorate and have at the reception to serve as part of my guest book. We also stopped by a new local coffeeshop/bakery/bookstore combo.

After a dinner of leftover pasta, we all headed outside. My college had set up a large outdoor movie screen. We watched the Blindside and nibbled on free popcorn and candy.

I loved the Blindside! I can't believe it took me so long to see it. It made me feel like crying during one part, and a few minutes later had me laughing at the top of my lungs. The experience was made even better by the fact that I was laying on a beach towel under the stars, and surrounded by good friends.

 I want to see Blindside again, and may have Mr. Groom watch it with me when he comes to visit in two weeks.

Have any of you seen it? Did you love it too?


  1. Your wedding invites are beautiful! I am sure there will be chocolate involved in the wedding somehow right? Smiles. Happy Saturday.

  2. Those invites are beutiful and I like the idea of the paper mache mailbox.

    I stil havent watched the Blindside. I love Sandra Bullock and anything football related. Wow.. Im horrible

  3. Your invitations are absolutely gorgeous! So elegant ... :) I saw "The Blind Side" at Thanksgiving, 'cause Jeremy had wanted to see it; the commercials made it look so sappy, but it was really an excellent movie!

  4. What a lovely day! I love your invitation - so beautiful and vibrant! Glad you had a fabulous day. I have not seen "The Blind Side". I miss seing adult movies. It's all muppets and disney films over here with an almost three year old, LOL! Enjoy your freedom~
