1. "Project Runway"
2. "The House of Eliott" DVD
3. Rehearsal dinner photos
1. PROJECT RUNWAY begins tonight, in the US, on Bravo TV.
It's my favorite show!!
It's soooo inspiring... and fun!
Nicolette told me that it's called "Project Catwalk" in the
Netherlands. What about your country??
This is a photo of the new cast
2. We've been watching the BBC series "The House of Eliott" .
Even Boyd seems to be enjoying it.
Evangeline and Beatrice Eliott, daughters of a prominent doctor
must support themselves after their profligate father dies
and leaves them penniless. They have no education
or training, just a passion for fashion design.
As suitors try to woo them and scoundrels try to trip them up,
they make independent, exciting lives for themselves
and the women they employ in their house of haute couture.
We are getting it from Netflix but I know that has
new and used copies.

3. The Rehearsal Dinner
Darin's parents, Barb and OZ, chose Fratellos on the Fox River
for the dinner. Because there wasn't a rehearsal, they
invited everyone... all 150 people who were invited to the
wedding. Really sweet of them.
Oshkosh is surrounded by water... and lots of bridges.
A wonderful small Midwest town.

Kristin and Wendy with their Dad... my ex husband.

The 2 mother-in-laws... Barb and I.
I couldn't have hand-picked better people to be a family with.

Emma made a new friend at the dinner... Audrey. Her mom is one of the
girls' stepsisters.

Kristin and her new brother-in-law.

Wendy and her best friend Jennifer.

Allison, Laurel, and MaryRobyn are the girls' stepsisters.
They have 7 adorable little children between them.
I've know them since Allison was a little girl and the
twins were just a dream.
I think they are just beautiful inside and out!

Wendy was born laughing!
She's finally relaxed and ready for the
PS The food was FANTASTIC!!
I had cinnamon crusted pork tenderloin
with butternut squash ravioli
with a ginger/cinnamon sauce.

I'm quite enjoying the photos you're sharing. They make me smile as everyone looks so very happy.

Thanks for the reminder about Project Runway as well as the BBC series you're watching. I keep forgetting to turn on the TV and watch it now and then so I'm not so clueless about things.

Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures! It looks all so lovely and cheerful!!

Enjoy Project Runway! Is this no 5?

We’ve recorded episode no 3 (still have to watch those), and 4 started last week.

Gorgeous pictures again Joni.

Did you know that Evangeline grew up to become the blonde haired detective in CSI Las Vegas?

BarbO said...

Yes Joni, the wedding festivities were fun huh? And we are so happy to have you in our new family circle!! If you bloggers think Joni is great through her blogsite, you would love her in person even more!!

Barb (Wendy's new mom-in-law, and Joni's friend and new family member)

Oh my goodness, those smiles!!! How lovely! It's really great to see everyone truly happy at the festivities.
I'm absolutely adding that BBC show to my Netflix queue. It's about to have complete overhaul and that show looks like a fabulous thing to add to my list!

Jacquie said...

I missed the first one...thanks for showing me the cast. It's going to be my first tv when I return from NYC...could there be a designer as fun and fierce as Christian?
