@cbee:  Aw, thanks πŸ™‚ I really wanted ranunculus at my wedding, and my florist made it happen. The first two told me they couldn’t. He also gave me some small ones for my hair (though 2 fell out right after the ceremony). You can sort of see them in the bouquet below, but the foreground is not in focus and there are also tulips, craspedia, and dafodils in there.

My drink: grande two pump classic no milk iced coffee (and I’ll likely be back to the counter for a free refill).

@Rouquine:  Card Sharks! Oh man. My husband and I may or may not have watched that show (and GSN) obsessively on our last vacation. We don’t have cable, so we were like 70s game show junkies that week – don’t even get me started on Match Game!
