connecticut is for lovers

IMG_0487One of my little sisters is getting married next July, and yesterday was a great time of florist consultations and bridesmaid dressing shopping. I went up to New Haven and we met Luigi the florist (who is so sweet and cute and has a little potbelly that he rests his hands on and he’s from Italy, but his accent makes him sound like Rene the Cajun from the first season of True Blood). Then we went to the Olive Garden (yippee for unlimited salad and breadsticks!), then we got Barbara from David’s Bridal to help us decide between chiffon and satin, and then we got scoops of strawberry and sweet cream in freshly baked waffle cones! Of course we were all snoring and sound asleep by 9pm (but not me, really, because I was sneaking peeks at Eat, Pray, Love on TBS). Mucho fun, I say!
