A Birthday & A Wedding

Saturday was The Husband's birthday. We don't celebrate birthdays by throwing parties, we usually celebrate by going out for a nice dinner or taking a nice trip. For this particular birthday, we attended a wedding!

We are now the old folks that attend weddings at the invitation of the bride or groom's parents. In this case, the bride was the daughter of a former co-worker.

The wedding was held at the wonderful, historic The Mayo Hotel. The ceremony was conducted in the lobby of the hotel and the reception was in the Crystal Ballroom on the 16th floor. Everything was lovely.

Here's a picture of me and the birthday boy. Isn't he handsome?

I'm the nice sister.
Because it was The Husband's birthday and because we'd never stayed at The Mayo Hotel, we booked a room. Actually, it was a suite. No, really it was one of their residences that has not been rented. There are 70 residences in the hotel. We decided we could totally live there.

The bedroom was very spacious. This photo doesn't do it justice.
The bathroom is accessible from the kitchen or the bedroom. There is a pocket door that can be used to separate the shower/sink area from the toilet and a second sink. Hook-ups for a full size stacking washer/dryer are in a closet.

I think it would be cool to live in a historic place like The Mayo Hotel.

Maybe they would rename the restaurant from Trula to Cindy and hang my portrait in a place of honor?
