The Great Wedding Caper

I don't know why we haven't incorporated the Muppets as one of our eleventy billion wedding themes. Here is a great song from The Muppet Movie about cooperation and friendship.

Movin' right along in search of good times and good news,
With good friends, you can't lose,
This could become a habit.
Opportunity knocked once, let's reach out and grab it,
Together we'll nab it.
We'll hitch-hike, bus, or yellow cab it.

Movin' right along, foot-loose and fancy free.
Gettin' there is half the fun; come share it with me.
Movin' right along (doog-a-doon, doog-a-doon)
We'll learn to share the load.
We don't need a map to keep this show on the road.

Movin' right along we found a life on the highway,
And your way is my way, so trust my navigation.
California here we come, that pie-in-the-sky land.
Palm trees and warm sand, though sadly we just left Rhode Island.

Movin' right along, hey, L.A., where've you gone?
Send someone to fetch us, we're in Saskatchewan.
Movin' right along (doog-a-doon, doog-a-doon)
You take it, you know best.
Hey, I've never seen the sun come up in the West.

Movin' right along, we're truly birds of a feather,
We're in this together, and you know where you're goin'.
Movie stars with flashy cars and life with the top down.
We're stormin' the big town.
Yeah! Storm is right, should it be snowin'?

Movin' right along, do I see signs of men?
Yeah, "welcome" on the same post that says "come back again."
Movin' right along, foot-loose and fancy free.
You're ready for the big time, is it ready for me?

Movin' right along
Movin' right along

Remember, Remember the 30th of November

November 30 was our one-year engagement and/or common-law anniversary! We celebrated by going to one of our favorite restaurants, Uchi, and getting a quick drink at the new restaurant down the street from us, Cover 3. All in all, it was a fun, fancy, wintry night.

One year ago, Justin came home and said, "You want to go look at rings?" I said, "Okay." And that was pretty much it; we were engaged. As Homestar Runner says, "Nothing fancy, nothing fancy." We then called everyone and went out for drinks and dessert with Justin's family at Fonda San Miguel, where these pictures were taken.

Meanwhile, you guys, the wedding is less than 4 months away!
