Bad blogger. An update.

I know, I know… it’s hard to call yourself a blogger when you so rarely blog.

But really – I’ve been busy – promise!  Not just with wedding stuff, but life as well.  K was an organizer of Startup Weekend Delaware, which made the whole fam busy, busy, busy.  Also, I took by orange belt test in karate, I sold my motorcycle (still looking for a new, bigger, badder one), we went to a 3 yr old bday party, and we started more intensely working on our first app.  Yes, an app by K and me… Gittie Labs is our brain child with our couple good friends.  That’s not all we did, though that IS a lot, now that I think about it.


Enough about me… and onto the wedding stuff.  My most embarrassing moment was realizing I misspelled Mr. President’s name (Barak instead of Barack) on his family’s wedding invitation.  I probably shouldn’t drink and do important spelling wedding stuff at 11pm, huh.  Woops – sorry Mr. & Mrs. Barack Obama & Family!  I’ll get your invite in the mail soon enough for you to not come anyway.
