Amigos y Mas!

Last night the McEachern and Curnes families hosted a Mexican Fiesta in honor of our engagement. We had a great time as we gathered with friends and family. The mood was set as guests entered the McEachern home to the sounds of mariachi music wafting through the front bushes. They were then greeted with outstretched arms by the bride and groom pinatas skillfully placed in the foyer. If mariachi and pinatas were not enough, our guests enjoyed a full array of Mexican cuisine and margaritas. Daniel and I enjoyed visiting with everyone, however, have decided that last night is a preview of what is to come at the wedding reception ... not enough time to talk with everyone.

~Muchas Gracias to everyone who attended and celebrated with us~

140 Days and Counting!

Well, our plans are really coming together, but there is still a lot to do.  We are in the process of finalizing our invitations.  The bridesmaids' dresses are being made, the bridal gown is getting altered, the tuxes have been decided on and a photographer has been booked.  We are registered for about half of the stuff at Bed, Bath & Beyond.  I have probably spent twice as much time in that store since I got engaged than I had previous to our engagement.  Today we booked our flight arrangements for our honeymoon.  We are going on a Royal Caribbean cruise to the Southern Caribbean.  You can see the boat we will be on here. Gloria says that she is going to hit the Spa on our first day at sea.  We will be boarding the boat in San Juan, Puerto Rico and then traveling to Aruba, Curacao, St. Maarten, and St. Thomas.  We will also enjoy a couple of days in Puerto Rico following the cruise.  Check back soon for another update as well as accommodation information.
