She’s growing so fast it’s hard to keep up. My granddaughter saw her brother trying to ride his bike and looked at me with a , we’re mine, look. This is what she picked out. Took to it right away, going backwards!!!
While planning my wedding there are things that have come to my attention that I have found rather bothersome.
Unless u r looking to spend 300 or more to rent a party tent, u r out of luck if it rains. They sell these, party tents, all over on ebay or amazon and they run from 30 to 2,000. But almost ever one I read states they are for sun protection and not made for wind or rain… So, that means if u plan an outside wedding and it rains, u r out of luck??? Really??? That just doesn’t work for me. Lots of people want to be outside but can’t afford a large tent that is wind and rain proof. 300, that’s just for a small one. Why does it have to cost thousands of dollars to have a nice , beautiful wedding ?? They say to save money, no caterers, ok, family or local places. No photographer’s, ok, family and friends snap away, “we r doing this” they do have excellent photo shops now but of course that’s another 50 or so. For music, go local, friends or make your own recording , I’m lucky that david is a former band member and has all we need for that, but then you are still looking at , flowers, real ones r very costly since u need a lot! The grooms clothes are not usually on hand and same with the dress. I think the Era of the DIY wedding is upon us! Brides are doing more themselves and I can see why!!
I bothers me how much you need to spend to have a wedding these days.I know it used to have traditionally the brides parents pay and all the old things that went with weddings but now u have people who are doing it more than once . It isn’t easy to do on a tight budget but I think I can safely say I will be under 1,000 when we r done. Here’s hoping!!! October 14 is coming quick!!
So, I have exactly 3 weeks left to my wedding. My body is swollen so my dress is about 3 inches to small. I still have tons of decorations to make , all the guys need clothes, divorce papers so we can get licensed, don’t have enough food yet for the pot luck, don’t have enough chairs yet, I do, have my bouquet finished, (I think) I have added a couple things since I took the pic but, will be doing that prob all the time till then. Lol. OCD thing!!
My kitties have just become so much more social and playful since we moved here. It scares me because they keep crossing the street so I try to get them to stay in back of the house. Did u know a cat considers a two mile radius to be there boundaries! !!! Two miles. Wow! I don’t want them to leave our one acre. I have been looking into ways to keep them away from the road but whatever I do they can just go around it!!
Moving time is here. My poor man is exhausted. It’s been a push everyday to get it all done. We ended up having to hire a couple guys to move all the big stuff into the uhaul but my son and my fiance had to unload themselves.
I haven’t been posting much as I been running and moving but things will get back on track after this weekend and I will post more and more pictures from the renovation and more about, well, everything!! Having a wedding in October, wow! Need to do that stuff. Assassin’s. Lol. See u soon.
