We did it!
We didn't look like this when we did it - this is brunch today. The good stuff will be along - I have permission from the awesome photographer to post the photos when I have them, so I'll share...probably way too much. And yes, she got bunches of photos of the stockings! But just quickly - it was a total blast, everything went great, a good time was had by all - or if it wasn't, I didn't hear about it - and even though a tropical storm sprung up out of nowhere, it miraculously didn't rain a drop during the whole thing. Thirty mile an hour wind gusts made things interesting, but we laughed and cried and smiled the whole way through. It was bliss.
Gotta go pack for the trip!!
