Episode Summary

Laura L.
Before: Laura and Paul have been married for ten years, but you wouldn't know it watching them swoon over one another like newlyweds. Unfortunately, the long hours they spend running their deli leaves them little time or energy for each other — or for household tasks like tidying up their home by the beach and getting rid of its ever present cat-pee smell. Busy though they may be, Laura feels their tenth anniversary is too important a milestone to ignore. So she's turned to the Gal Pals for help throwing a beach party for their friends and family, the perfect setting for a surprise vow-renewing ceremony. After: With the Gal Pals gone, Laura takes a moment to lie back and collect her thoughts for the evening ahead. A little bit of nervous energy shows as first her hand quivers while applying lip liner, and again when she wisely (but with frustration) gives up on an updo that was on its way to mullet-town. At least she looks smashing in her wrap dress. Hoping to cut a corner or two, plans to print out photo keepsakes for her guests are shelved. ("How much time did I spend with her?" wonders Honey.) Husband Paul arrives home and is conscripted to assemble gift baskets, then takes an ill-advised stab at floral arrangements. Bonus hint: roses and bird of paradise flowers don't go well together. Laura's Minnesota family is first to arrive, followed soon by their Los Angeles friends. Everyone is taken with the new apartment and their fabulous roof deck; her father expresses his joy at seeing his angel, always a caregiver, being treated to something so special. Laura brings Paul to their bedroom where she gives him the special watch she had custom designed just for him. While he's suitably distracted, her friend quietly leads the party guests out to the beach. As he waits, eyes closed, she changes into her gold gown and succeeds in putting her hair up. Together they make their way to the beach for a sunset ceremony, each expressing their gratitude that fate has provided them with such a wonderful partner for life's adventure.moreless
