we had a buttload of folks come over yesterday to meet the bean and have some grub. i was afraid that invitations got lost in the mail somehow, because i was hearing back from some of our friends that they never received theirs. that's what i get for being lazy and doing them postcard-style. oy vey.
but the turnout was pretty fabulous! we were so busy running around, entertaining, making sure food and beverages didn't run out, blah, blah, blah, that i never picked up the camera ONCE. i'm so regretting that now. poo.
probably the funniest part was watching my family run around like maniacs in the front and back yards with a pair of scissors and handfuls of plastic bags. we've got a lot of fruit trees at this house, and they were only too happy to "clean up" for us. heh.
now i'm psyching myself up for an evening out - my first time away from the bean. i'm a little sad, but excited to hang out with friends for a while. just cross your fingers that i don't chicken out at the last minute.
