It's a big weekend for me, friends – Saturday is my bridal shower! I'm so excited that my sister and other family will be in town help celebrate along with my lovely girlfriends. I'm going to start things right with a mani/pedi, a trip to the gym, and then enjoy my day. Sunday night, we're heading to The Forebay at The Hershey Lodge to sample their wild game menu for my column. Steelers have a bye, so it's all relaxation after that. And yard work. And house-cleaning. But still. A lovely three-day weekend for sure. What are your plans?
In tomorrow's Patriot-News column I'll talk about the wine harvest weekend at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, a Green Living Fair and last Friday's wine dinner at the Hilton.
Building upon his seventeen years as the leader of what Tom Shales, famed TV critic of the Washington Post called, “the best band in late night Television,” the Max Weinberg Big Band is a bold, swinging fifteen piece aggregation that continues the traditions established by Max’s musical heroes—among whom, Frank Sinatra, Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, Doc Severinsen, and Maynard Ferguson lead the pack. Judging by the crowd’s enthusiastic reaction to the Max Weinberg Big Band’s debut performance at the Fontainbleu Hotel in Miami Beach during Christmas Week of 2009 their approach to the hard-driving instrumental jazz that was a staple of television variety shows in the 1960’s and 1970’s has been sorely missed and fulfills a long held dream by Max to bring it back to the world’s stages.

The fiance and I were just wondering what Justin Timberlake has been up to (ya know, besides starring in the Roger Ebert-approved movie, The Social Network, in theaters tomorrow). Where's the new album, JT?
After this rain stops (and I like it, I just wish I could spend the day in my home office – or bed – listening and watching), a beautiful weekend is forecasted for our area.
As seems to be the theme anymore, this weekend is packed. It all starts tomorrow with a two-day yard sale in my neighborhood, wine dinner at the Hilton on Friday night, shopping for a dress for next week's bridal shower and on Sunday, I'll be a dress model for Taylored for You (where I bought my dress) at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg West's "Timeless Elegance" bridal show. I'll miss the first half of the Steelers game (bummed), a day-long football party, judging the Cupcake Cup AND my favorite class at the gym – twice, but — it should be a lot of fun.

This weekend was supposed to be a camping trip to Ricketts Glen – but we never took any steps to actually do it, like borrow or purchase camping gear, make a campground reservation, stock up on food and beverage items.
So, instead, the mister and I will be finally making the garage-to-shed move for so much of our tools, etc., and taking stock of items to sell at our upcoming yard sale.
I’m thinking maybe a viewing of The Town on Friday night and then drinks with one of my best girls on Saturday night. Sunday, obviously, is Steelers central. Then it’s off to a wine dinner at Devon Seafood Grill, which I’ll document for you in next week’s column.
As for you, the sky is the limit. With one last push of summer air, be outside if you can. For the roundup on what’s going on, read on:
As promised, and as seen in yesterday's Wedding Style Fall 2010 in The Patriot-News, here is our engagement story (or click on the photo to link to the online version):
About three months into our relationship, Andy (Surra) told me that he knew how he planned to propose. Never mind that we hadn't so much as discussed the long-term future of our relatively new relationship.
Over the next two years, Andy would, on occasion, spontaneously announce to me – with a metaphoric light bulb over his head – that he knew precisely how he would propose. He never provided any details, though once, early on, he did ask me if 1 regularly kept food in the house to prepare a meal. (I do.)
In early 2009, he asked: "Which do you want to do first? Get engaged or buy a house?"
"Buy a house," I said, terrified of seeming eager to get married. Andy promptly went out and bought a ring, though I didn't know it at the time.
Well, well, another crazy week almost behind us. Like many of you, I’m spending my Thursday evening enjoying a home-cooked meal and cozying in for the damp fall weather.
Tomorrow, we’re scheduled for the first of the Hilton Harrisburg’s fall wine dinner series. I’m excited to celebrate my first bridal shower this Saturday. My mom is driving me up to the PA Wilds for an afternoon shower with my future in-laws. Sunday is for laundry and catch-up, and then somehow we’re going to do it all over again.
Ugh. I hate when I get to the Weekend Roundup this late. I hope ya'll found something to do last night. We had dinner at Flinchy's to try some items from their new menu, but I ended up being unable to resist the filet mignon hot rock. Flinchy's has added a cool new feature to their menus – suggested wine pairings for each food item, from the jalepeno poppers (I love theirs because they're stuffed with cream cheese instead of cheddar cheese and are delicately fried, not hard) to the Surf 'n Turf.
My weekend is scheduled to be low key: a couple Body Flow classes, shopping for attire for my upcoming bridal showers and football Sunday at my dad's. GO STEELERS! I also hope to stop out for part of Gallery Walk if it doesn't rain.
Let's make it quick and jump right to the weekend's highlights. Read on to learn more.
