We had both of our parties the weekend before the wedding, Sept 11th, so that neither of us would have to sit home worrying about what the other was doing. Jason went home to Madison, WI for his and he took Eva with him so that she could 1) spend time with WI grandparents and 2) so Mommy didn't have to be on duty the night after a drunken dance fest.
Jason's friends started the day out with "smut and eggs"- for those of you classy enough not to know what that is, it's bars and country clubs that play porn while serving breakfast/brunch food. So, no surprise, he was "napping" (i.e. passed out) by about 2:00pm and wasn't feeling too hot when he woke up a few hours later to head to the Wisconsin Dells. They did the normal club, titty bar, hotel schtick. He was not feeling too hot the next day- serves you right :-)

|Too many shots, bought my my dear friend Shannon who we ran into at the second bar. She is actually an older friend than everyone who was at dinner; we met when I transferred to St. Elizabeth Seton in 5th grade! |
All in all, Jason and I both had a wonderful time with our closest friends and we are so lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives!
Special thanks to Maria & James!
