Melanie’s wedding shower

Melanie’s wedding shower

We had Melanie’s wedding shower on Saturday. It was fun and fairly low pressure, especially since it wasn’t a surprise. We determined that there was no way to keep it a surprise and bring her mother, sister, and friends into town without her knowing. Plus it was just easier to plan if we all knew what was going on.

Anyway, we gathered at what will be our new apartment together, which is where Melanie has been living for the past five years. Her roommates have already moved out so now we’re making it our own.  We were given some very nice gifts that will help us establish our new household.

On Friday, I had to run up to Home Depot to pick up an air conditioner for the apartment because it was going to be in the high 90s this past weekend. I installed the huge thing in the window (not realizing that there was a thornbush underneath it that I was going to have to stand in while installing). But Saturday morning, Melanie called me to say that the GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) in the plug kept tripping. Yeesh. Of all days… I ran back to Home Depot to get a long extension cord, hooked it up to another outlet, and thank God, it worked. Whew! Of course last night it started tripping even while the ac was off, so I have to figure out what’s going on.

I plan on putting up a photo gallery later, so for family and friends who are interested, stay tuned.
