Michigan Wedding Week!

This week, I'm home in Michigan for my brother's wedding! I'll be posting about all the fun things that are going on and hope you enjoy the ride.

My brother's wedding will be extra fun because it is going to be a Thai-Pakistani wedding. I am already salivating thinking of all the great food we are going to eat this week!

Today, I got to meet Val's mom and their family friend. We spent a lot of time hanging out in their hotel, trying on outfits and getting excited for the upcoming days. I know that a big cultural wedding can be a real hassle but so far I've had so much fun planning and moments like today, where we were all just sitting around relaxing and having fun make me really happy and I'm so glad we have them.

So, stayed tuned for more about the wedding and in the meantime, here are some pictures from the last couple of days.

I went through my second round of dental treatments in Costa Rica this past weekend. The two dentists are in the back and Jose with the polo shirt was the nice man who carted me around San Jose from the airport to appointments and to my hotel. 
The first day was about seven hours in the chair and I finally started crying at one point when the pain was unbearable. I asked to take a break and went in the bathroom to wash my face. When I came out, the whole staff was holding a cake and sang Happy Birthday to me in Spanish! They even rolled the rs on my name perfectly! It was so touching.
They got me a Chilean torte cake. It was so good! They used a candle on it that they have used for seven years. Whenever a patient has a birthday they light that candle. I wished that the rest of the procedure would be pain free and it was! It is amazing how having a relaxed mind can help you! 
Cake and Coke in the dentist office. Beautiful.
They sent me home with half a cake. This is how I felt. 
Today I went to visit my friend Tim who was in a motorcycle accident. He broke lots of parts and was in the hospital for two weeks. He is going to be ok though. And that is the most wonderful thing.

These guys love Tim and are doing a great job taking care of him. They are also great at going to Cederland with me.  
If you get hit by a SUV while on a motorcycle, I will put stickers all over a box for you too. Good deal, yeah?

Cederland. The most magical place.
Michael gets really excited at Cederland. Someone needs to tell him to calm down.
Wedding crafts.
Plastic flowers are a must.


  1. Thanks for putting up pictures of the Dentist, place looks great!

  2. Thai-Pakistani wedding sounds delicious!!! Where's my invitation!? (interro-napkin-tucked-under-chin!)

    1. Please hurry over! If you leave now, you can still make it!

  3. a cake from the dentist?? seems counter-productive ;) enjoy being in Michigan for your brother's wedding. Welcome home!

    1. I know! And afterwards he said to eat cold things like ice cream!

  4. so confused why you went all the way to costa rica for dental work when you have a brother in law as a dentist?! LOL

    1. Haha! I know?! Unfortunately he doesn't do implants and I needed full mouth reconstruction. Boo!
