I've got more! For the wedding, my bridesmaid's husband Chris made us a bow in our wedding colors and threw in some arrows! Such an amazing gift, and we finally got to use them today because it was gorgeous outside and Husband needed a study break.

Piper trying her hand (paw?) at it... 30# might be a bit tough for her though!

Helping us retrieve arrows from the makeshift target.

I got a photo of Piper I've been trying to get since my first LV arrived...

We are a very military city and I live pretty near one of the bases, so jet noise is big. I've lived here my whole life so I don't think much of it for the most part, but this is one of the two times a year it gets a little absurd (the other is for their air show in September). I finally had just the right timing, being stuck in traffic at one of the lowest parts of the flight path (only a couple miles, tops, from the base) so I finally got a photo of my LV with a jet.

Also, we visited my in-laws' house and got some pretty pictures outside. Craftster is having troubles resizing those photos apparently, but you can see them at the blog: http://piperinvb.blogspot.com/2014/04/spring-is-sprung.html

So, as you all know, Georgie has gone missing. I volunteered to be blupaisan's swap angel so she still gets the Virginia Beach experience  Smiley

Yesterday, I went to find a new LV, and found this cute little kitty:

When I was picking her out, a little girl asked me what I was going to name her, and I told her I didn't know yet, and asked if she had any suggestions, and she said Piper. Which I think is just as good a name as any I could come up with, so this is Piper, everybody!

I'll be posting Piper's photos here in the gallery, and at piperinvb.blogspot.com (which isn't pretty yet, I just snagged the name a minute ago).

Here she is yesterday at work with me (we were rearranging my office):

And meeting Anana, and hearing all about his adventures with blupaisan:

She'll be having adventures with me through the end of the next LV round, then going to her new home with blupaisan! I hope you like her, blupaisan!

So I've been hunting for a group of photos that I took leading up to (and a few during) the wedding, and I was panicking because I couldn't find them... but they were on the computer desktop all along! And I found these two of Georgie that unfortunately didn't make it into his scrapbook...

That's not the wedding dress, that's the brunch-the-morning-of-the-wedding dress.

Off our balcony at the hotel the morning after the wedding. (If you could look down to the boardwalk, you'd see marathoners... yup, that was the weekend of VB's first big marathon of the season.) The tube you see over to the right is an annual sight at our Oceanfront... it's pumping sand to where it belongs because if we didn't do that, erosion would eat the whole beach away. They're usually gone in April or early May, in time for the tourists to start pouring in.

I hope Georgie makes his way home soon...

As promised, here's Anana and his many goodies!

Anana home, safe and sound, in an adorable little pineappley bag!

Big, beautiful scrapbook (with an ampersand hidden on every page, according to my note!)

The CUTEST little Picasso-style drawing of Anana!

Isn't one of the best things about LV swaps the weirdly awesome stuff you can get from other places? This is a piece of a sap bucket and a white chocolate snowmobile... two things I would NEVER find in Virginia!

Wedding gift! It's a thrifted and repainted ampersand!

Typographic envelopes, VT mug, a mad-libs type booklet (which is SO funny)

Postcard, bits of Anana's costumes as seen here in the gallery, maple candy (YUMMM), chocolate Necco wafers (my favorites!), a neat little coin purse, a funny (like "bloopers" sort of) second photo album which is hilarious, and bags of gummi bears used as packing material to keep things from shifting around... and a microfilm label bracelet!!! I'll be the envy of all the librarians  Grin

Blupaisan, you're the best! Anana seems to have had a great time  Cheesy

Thanks guys  Grin Here are a few of Georgie's wedding photos (didn't get a single one of him with me in my dress, sadface):

Trying on my shoes, which are a little bit too big.

(We're Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy nerds.) My wedding ring in "forty," my engagement ring in "two."

I'm packing everything up to send him now... We've had so much fun! I always hate the wait between rounds, because I stay stuck in the habit of "ooh this would make a good LV picture" and reach for my camera and find no LV in my purse.

Here is my wonderful package from omgferosh92!!!

Omg paper! So much paper, and I love it! The book pages are from a book about Congress. The bright blue on the far left is a pad of pages with "to do" list blanks, which is just perfectly me. And there's a whole rainbow of similarly-patterned papers under a lot of that (I kept stacking things, trying to get all the paper in one photo, and wound up covering it up... oops).

And ephemera! I never would have thought of photo negatives, I love that! And playing cards, Uno cards (one of which is blank, which has baffled me but I love it... do they make those for house rules or something?) and little plastic coins, and Toys R Us gift cards... everything is so cool!

Thank you omgferosh92!

I haven't had a free moment to blog for Georgie, but here are a few of our recent photos...

We played D&D for the bachelorette party...

...and Georgie totally tamed the dragon.

You know how at bridal showers you take all the bows and ribbon from the presents and make the bouquet you use at the rehearsal? Here's Georgie with that thing. (He probably still has some blue sparkles on him... that tulle is vicious.)

It's Girl Scout cookie season!!!

At The Melting Pot for fondue dinner for Fiance's & my anniversary, like we do every year. (Georgie needed a little help with the fondue fork, seeing as how it's taller than him...)

Georgie and I have been busy with wedding crafting!

The boutonnieres are about as tall as he is (and technically the groom crafted those so I can't take credit).

We put a lot of taffy in a lot of bags this weekend.

It's a shame he'll miss the wedding by two weeks  Undecided But he's very helpful anyway!

More photos at the blog:

Mine got here yesterday! It's from the wonderfully talented onyxnox, and came with a beautiful matching tag too!

(I just realized there's a bit of a glare on the tag, and I set the art down sideways for the photo, but it took me all day to get around to coming here to post, so this will have to do.)

Thank you onyxnox!
