Day 18 and 19

Day 18 and 19 are my wedding, and a talent of mine.

Well, first off, our wedding.  It was September 28, 1996 (we just celebrated our 14th anniversary!) and it was one of those big weddings where we just couldn't pare down the guest list.  There was never any question it wasn't going to be a "small" wedding, and it's not like we had 500 people or anything but I think there was 275ish invited.  Anyway, it was a great day!  I had my sister as  my maid of honor, and 2 best friends and my sister in law stand up for me.  Hubby had 2 friends and his brother in law and my brother stand up for him.  I was thinking the other day about what time the wedding took place, and for the life of me I can't remember.  Isn't that awful?!  After the ceremony, we went for pictures.  I can remember having to smile so much that my mouth hurt by the time we were done and I was getting a little bitchy.  Not good, but really, the photographer was veeeeery thorough.

The reception was a sit down dinner for about 200.  The food was awesome and the program afterward was great too.  We had a live band, and everyone had a great time.  We were one of the last ones to leave (I've never understood the bride and groom leaving at, like, 10 o'clock - we wanted to stay and party with all of our guests!)  I have no pictures to post because all of our old pictures are in storage while we live up north (and I'm pretty sure no one had a digital camera there!). 

Day 19 - a talent I have.  Well, I like to think I'm pretty good cook.  I think my talent with cooking is being able to create great dishes without using recipes.  I hate using recipes, and I like to just browse my pantry to see what might go good together.  When I get in the mood to cook or bake, I love searching the internet for ideas, and then off I go to make something from the ideas I get.  Sometimes I combine 2 or 3 different recipes, and most of the time it works out great!

I seriously do feel like cooking is a talent... and one that I don't necessarily have! I can make things work in the kitchen, but I am always envious of people who are seriously talented in the kitchen!
