Well the reception/shower went great this weekend. Everyone had a wonderful time. The bride and groom actually exchanged vows a month ago. They also surprised us with news of a new grand child on the way, number two. The biggest part of the surprise... #2 will be here in 4 months. Yep, she's months. We are hoping for a girl. One of my best friends helped me with the event. We had it in the evening and served authentic Italian stuffed giant pasta shells and Fettuccine Alfredo with grilled chicken(thanks Giada De Laurentiis). All topped off with wedding cake and saw dust salad(recipe to come). I'll return to my diet Monday.
