Still have a few table linens and other items for sale!!
Ok ladies, we've already been married for 9 months by now (since August 7th, 2009) and there's still just a few items that I'm trying to get rid of!! My mom's coming down this August to visit and I need to make sure the spare bedroom is completely cleared out of ALL wedding items before she gets here lol!! So here's what I still have left:
4 - 90" x 132" white table linens (they are floor length on 6 foot long tables): I paid $15.99 each, selling them for $10 each ($40 total)...sorry these are the only table linens I have left (the chair covers, turquoise table runners and chair sashes are no longer available...sorry!!)

Pair of David's Bridal Flowergirl Sashes (with velcro back) in Pool Blue: selling both for $15 obo

Sorry the lighting was so poor when I was taking pics of the dress and the sashes, but please look at the last pic from our photographer to see the true color and beauty of these items!!

Bridesmaids Dress & Flowergirl Sashes!!!
Hey ladies...WOW OMG I haven't posted anything since November!! Man I swore that I would be one of those brides who'd stick around and still leave comments from time to time even after the wedding was over, but eventually life goes on and the wedding planning must come to an end...and then you just get settled into married life!! So ladies, I'm finally taking the time (after 6 months!!!) to post up some items I have for sale:
Size 24 Bridesmaids dress in Pool Blue: $60 obo
2 Flowergirl sashes with velcro in Pool Blue: $8 each obo
All items came from David's Bridal and have only been worn once. The bridesmaids dress would need to be dry cleaned, but the sashes wouldn't cause they simply velcro around the outside of the flowergirl dresses and actually both of our flowergirls took them off during the reception lol!! Buyer pays shipping...I live in Mobile, Alabama. Sorry the lighting was so poor when I was taking these pics, but please look at the last pic from my photographer to see the true color and beauty of these items!!
Thanks for looking ladies...married life is sooo wonderful!!! Good luck to all of you and happy planning!!! ;-)
Both bathroom baskets
Some toiletry items that I still have left...unfortunately, MOST of the items I bought somehow mysteriously turned up "missing" lol!!
Just to show that the box is still FULL of cups!!
The box is still full of bandaids
Bathroom basket with both candy dishes
Candy dish filled with the leftover wedding buttermints
Bag full of leftover wedding buttermints (probably at least 50)
Little seashell frames

Bathroom baskets & toiletry items for sale!!!
Hey ladies!! I'm selling the 2 bathroom baskets we used at our wedding along with some of the leftover toiletry items and a few things that pretty much go hand-in-hand with the bathroom baskets!! As you can see, I turned this into a little DIY project and embellished our baskets with turquoise ribbon and some starfish to go along with our beach themed wedding on 8/7/09...and I'm just now FINALLY getting around to taking pics of everything and putting them up for sale lol!! I would prefer...if possible...to sell ALL of the items together as a package deal to just one bride, it would just be soo much easier that way!! Of course I will sell the items separately if I need to, but first dibs will definitely go to any bride who wants to buy ALL of these items together as a package deal!! I'm willing to let everything go for $20 (shipping is extra), even after all my hardwork to spruce these baskets up a little bit lol!! So here's what's included:
*2 bathroom baskets decorated with turquoise ribbon and starfish (which could easily be removed and embellished with your own colors and decor)...Sorry I forgot to measure them, but rough estimate is that they're about 15" long x 10" wide x 3" deep
*Several toiletry items:
1) Herbal Essenses hairspray (still full)
2) Box of 200 little bathroom cups (the box is still very full!)
3) 100 bandaids (box appears to be full...maybe just a few missing)
4) Bottle of clear nail polish
5) 100 bobby pins (possibly just a few missing)
6) Pack of 50 dental flossers (hmm...I didn't think to check if the pack had even been opened yet, but it appears to still be full!)
*2 candy dishes that we used to put mints in (1 for each basket)
*A bowl (or bag) full of wedding buttermints that are left (probably at least 50) that say "Thanks for Sharing Our Special Day" on them in silver with a little picture of some wedding bells and 2 doves on it (you can kinda see it in some of these pics)
*2 little seashell frames...I have NO CLUE what happened to the 3rd one (someone probably kept it for themselves after the wedding was over...shame on them!!) Anyways, I had 2 of the ones made up that say "Compliments of the Bride & Groom," with one beside each basket...and then obviously the 3rd one says "Cards" and was beside our cardbox, but I can easily make them say whatever you want them to say so they'll match!!
As you can see in the very last pic from our actual wedding, the baskets WERE full of stuff...but I guess since I put "Compliments of the Bride & Groom" in our little frames, people just decided to help themselves to whatever they wanted (not just a little bit of this or a little bit of that, but people took some of the entire bottles or boxes of stuff!! lol). Anyways, so I don't think there was honestly ANYTHING leftover from the men's basket...and how crazy is that, cause at first I wasn't sure if I should even put one in there for them cause I was afraid they wouldn't even pay attention to it lol!! So pretty much everything that's still left is from the women's bathroom, but I kept a few of the items that I could use such as the lotion and body spray for myself. Just leave me a comment or click the "contact me" link if you're interested!!! ;-)

Thank You's FINALLY done!!
How long did it take to write yours?!?!
Fewwww...man, I was always soo on top of everything during the whole wedding planning process, but dang I'm FINALLY done writing ALL of our Thank You cards and it only took me 3 MONTHS after the wedding to get them all sent out lol!! We got married on 8/7/09, and I FINALLY finished writing the rest of our Thank You's on 11/7/09...so it took me exactly 3 MONTHS to finish them all haha!! I mailed what was left of them out last week, but there was only 11 left...I guess I didn't do THAT bad overall, cause I mailed them out in stages...and these were just the final 11 that were left!! I actually was on the ball at first after my work gave me a bridal shower back in July, so I actually wrote those 15 Thank You's right away, even before the wedding so that I wouldn't have even MORE to write after our wedding!! Then I pretty much became a slacker lol...I was determined to get all of our Thank You's done over Labor Day weekend...HA yeah right!! I think out of about 60 Thank You's that I still needed to get done (not counting the 15 that I wrote before our wedding), I think I probably only did about 10 of them!! Little by little, I got a few more done at a time and I made sure to write all of the ones for people that sent us stuff in the mail first (cause some people sent us cards and gift money like 2-3 months before the wedding, so I didn't want them to have to wait a total of 6 MONTHS to even get a Thank You card lol)!!!
Anyways, so they're FINALLY all done and I'm soo glad to be over with them...it's such a boring task to do, but it has to get done eventually at some point or another cause you'd hate for people to think you're ungrateful for everything that you've been given!! Anyways, so here's some pics of the Thank You cards we sent out to match our invitations...which were all designed by our very own fellow WBC bride Nearlycapone08!! I decided to include photo collages that I got printed out from Walgreens cause it was SOOO much cheaper doing it this way!! Just for 1 wallet sized picture it would've been $.25 each, or you can create a photo collage for $.29 each...CHA-CHING!!! Besides, it included 3 pictures, not just one (and you could even fit more than that if you wanted to), so this was perfect to include for all of our friends and family that couldn't actually make it to our wedding!! Don't you ladies LOVE the picture in the middle with us infront of our "Thank You" sign?!?! Believe it or not, the sign actually didn't even say that at ALL...I included the original pic for you to look at which actually says "Congratulations Bill & Krystal" on the sign!! A special SHOUT OUT goes to our fellow WBC bride Neuweg03, who actually just recently got married herself...and she helped edit this photo for us and it turned out absolutely AMAZING!!! People who were at the wedding even had to ask..."That's not what the sign said, or was it?!?!" LOL...that's how awesome her editing skills are!!!
Invitation to the Obamas
We got a response!!!
Hey Ladies!! After 6 months, we FINALLY got a response from the invitation I sent to the White House back in May when we mailed out our invitations!! You know...it ONLY took 6 months lol, but if you look on the bright side, they're only 3 months late from our wedding day (8/7/09) LOL!! It actually came on Saturday, so it was exactly 3 months since our wedding...and I was gonna post this up sooner, but then my hubby's lost (or STOLEN) wedding ring "mysteriously reappeared" Sunday night, so I felt that was a little more important to post up about first (you can read my last post for all the details if you're curious)!! And then Tropical Storm Ida rolled through on Monday night, so we only had a half day of work yesterday, so I figured I should actually get some WORK done (maybe) lol...since we were only here for 4 hours...anyways so I'm just now posting about this even though it got here on Saturday!!
So the answer is YES ladies...if you mail something to the White House, you will eventually get a response, but it's really nothing all that fancy. It's just basically a one-sided card with a cute little message on it and it has both Barack and Michelle Obama's signatures...but I definitely don't think it's the real deal...looks like they just get a ton of these made up and send them out, but hey it's still a nice keepsake to have!! The only bad thing is I didn't take a picture of the front of the envelope because it wasn't addressed to US...WTF?!?!? I was a little upset about that at first...they had our correct address, but obviously they must've been looking at someone else's invitation at the same time they were looking at ours, and so they got our names mixed up...and whoever this bride and groom are they probably got a card with our names on it too LOL!! I thought about sending it back at first, but then when I opened it up and saw it was just a generic card inside (nothing personalized with our names on it), then honestly it wouldn't have been worth the 6 month wait (again) lol!!
Anyways, so here's the original post I found about sending an invitation to the President or to some other important political figures:
However, that post listed Bush as the President cause I first read about this over a year ago, but here's the current info if you want to send an invitation specifically to the Obamas:
My Hubby's Wedding Band
The basket with my box of razors sitting inside...right up against the back of the basket, which is how they always sit and which is also how I found them!!
Back of the box of razors, which always stays closed on it's own unless you try to pull it open!!
Me holding the flap open on the box of razors (I found my hubby's ring inside)...but the entire time it was trying to flop back closed again!!
My Hubby's lost (or STOLEN)
ring has been FOUND!!!
DANG IT that sucks...I typed out this long post yesterday and then because of Tropical Storm Ida, they let us leave work an hour early so I was rushing to finish what I was typing...and apparently I didn't actually SAVE the post cause today it wasn't even there!!! So now let me start ALL over again lol...and WARNING: This will be yet another VERY LONG post (only read if you have time lol)!!!!
For anyone who hasn't read any of my recent posts regarding my hubby's lost (or possibly even STOLEN) wedding ring...well I found it Sunday night!!! We we're both extremely happy about this...even though we thought it was pretty much long gone, so we went out and ordered a replacement ring last Sunday and I actually just got a call that it came in today. It's not that big of a deal though cause it's a very inexpensive ring since it's titanium and not gold or silver, and it doesn't have any diamonds or anything...just the way my hubby wanted it since he's a mechanic and didn't want an expensive ring since he knew he would only be wearing it around the house and not whenever he's busy working. Anyways, so now we found his original ring which I'm estatic about because nothing could EVER possibly replace the ring I actually placed on his finger the day we got married (8/7/09), but hey now I guess he'll have a spare just in case he ever needs it for whatever reason...maybe the original ring he can keep for "good" and the spare ring he can wear and not worry about it as much if it gets dirty or greasy (hey, it was only $55 lol)!!!
SOO...now this brings me to the part of the story about WHERE I found his ring, and if you haven't read any of my other posts about this, then feel free to get yourself caught up...because now we definitely think it must've been STOLEN...by my MOH!!!! The day my hubby's ring actually turned up missing my MOH and his Best Man (they're dating each other) had been over, and the last time they had come over before that we actually had $20 turn up missing too!! Anyways, we know my MOH has been accused before by her former boss of stealing, and this lead to her losing her job over it and she actually told us one time she would never steal from anybody "UNLESS they made her mad enough"!!! Well, she had been mad enough at her boss about something and then she left extremely mad at my hubby the day that his ring turned up missing because she claimed that we owed them money for something...which we did NOT, and if we had actually kept track of all the different times we had to loan them $20 here or there, then they would've probably ended up owing us money...not to mention I bought her dress and her shoes for the wedding (only because she was my last minute MOH after my best friend since Kindergarten found out she was pregnant and her due date was ON our wedding day!!)...anyways so I got the dress back so I can try to sell it to get some money back, but she somehow "lost" the shoes, so that's my money she lost!! Anyways, so we were willing to just call things even and be DONE with them, but she insisted that we still owed them money, and so I guess she must've left mad enough that day to steal my hubby's ring thinking that maybe she could get enough money from pawning it to equal what she claimed we "owed" them...but like I said this ring only costs $55 brand new, and it's actually engraved so the pawn shop probably only offered her $10 for it lol, and so then once they realized we were frantically looking for it she probably started trying to think of ways she could put it back and just make it look like my hubby had lost it!!
WELL...maybe that would have worked except for the fact of WHERE I found his ring!! It was actually inside of my box of disposable razors!! When I went to grab a new one Sunday night, I saw his ring just lying inside of the box, so I ran into the other room and showed my hubby where I found it and he asked "where do you even keep your razors at?!" He honestly had NO clue...and even if he had known where, it would still be pretty much physically impossible for his ring to just "fall" inside of it!! I always keep my razors and some of my other girly items in this basket on the shelf of our bathroom closet, and I had even torn this basket apart already just in case my hubby had been reaching over it and his ring accidentally fell off inside of the basket...but my hubby was 100% sure that he sat his ring in the same spot he always puts it in before doing any mechanic work...he always puts it in our medicine cabinet (NOT the bathroom closet) and he said he knows for a FACT that's where he put it the day it turned up missing too!! Anyways, so I had already looked through this basket before just in case...but the fact that it was actually INSIDE of my box of razors just seems pretty much physically impossible for it to just accidentally "fall" in (especially since my hubby didn't even know where I keep them)!! I took some pics just to prove how physically impossible this would be...my box of razors are always kinda turned on the side so that the back of the box is actually right up against the back of the basket...so there's physically no room for anything to fall behind or inside of the box!! Besides, even when you pick it up to get a new razor out, you have to open the flap up that's on the back and the entire time it's always trying to flop back in place and close by itself...so even if it was turned upside down (which it NEVER is), still the flap on the back is always automatically closed unless you pull it open (i.e. NOTHING could just automatically "fall" in on it's own)!!! We figured IF his ring ever did show up again, it would only be AFTER they came back over...and the only reason we allowed them to come back over was because his Best Man had to have his car towed away that we actually allowed them to let sit in our yard for like 6 months because their apartment complex was gonna tow it away for expired tags and it was broken down and he couldn't afford to fix it!! Anyways...my hubby pulled him aside into the garage area to give him some of his tools back, and he asked him face to face, man to man if he had stolen his ring (even though he honestly didn't think his Best Man would ever be stupid enough to do something like that)...and he said NO he would never do that!! But then my hubby asked the same question if he could stare him straight in the eye and honestly say that he didn't think that my MOH had stolen it, and he said he honestly didn't THINK that she would do something like that, but he didn't know 100% for sure!! Then a few minutes later she came in and just kinda gave this nod, and at the time my hubby thought that meant that the guy they knew with a tow truck was ready to go, but now he thinks it might've actually meant "Ok, I've taken care of it now!!" (meaning while they were both inside the garage she might've snuck inside our house and tried to put the ring back somewhere where we would eventually find it)!! Anyways, all I have to say is that we're completely DONE with them and we know pretty much without a doubt now that his ring was STOLEN after all cause it would be pretty much physically impossible for it to end up actually INSIDE of my box of razors!! If she had actually been smart...maybe she should have just put it in the bottom of the basket, and we would've assumed that maybe it did just fall off of my hubby's finger and even though maybe we would've felt a little bit sorry for accusing her of stealing it, we were still already DONE with them at that point for various other reasons!! But now since she chose pretty much the most impossible place to put the ring back to make it look like it just "mysteriously reappeared," now it pretty much 100% confirms that his ring was STOLEN by my MOH!!!
UPDATE: My Hubby's lost
(or possibly even STOLEN) wedding ring!!
Hey ladies...thanks to all of you who read and commented on my post the other day about my hubby's lost (or possibly even STOLEN) wedding ring!! It's already been lost for a week now...and we have completely torn our house apart looking for it, even looking in the oddest and most off the wall places you can think of!! But my hubby is still 100% positive that when he took it off he placed it in the medicine cabinet where he always puts it before he's about to do mechanic work so it won't get greasy or dirty (or even worse fall off and get lost inside of an engine or something lol)!! He said that the door to the medicine cabinet didn't close all the way at first, so he even reopened it and made sure he had sat his ring in it's safe little spot inside and then closed the door again once he knew it was in there safe and sound!! So he's 100% positive of where he put it, but even so we still tore the whole house apart looking for it and he even looked in his car (even though he didn't drive it anywhere that day) and looked in the truck that he was working on...even though he knows he didn't even have it on when he went outside to go work on it!!
Anyways, so if you didn't read my other post about this, then the only other thing we could possibly think of to explain what happened to his ring was that it might have actually been STOLEN!! Not only that...but the culprit might have actually been my MOH!!! Long story, you can read my other post if you want all the details...but my MOH and her boyfriend (who was our Best Man) were the only other people to step foot inside of our house the day it somehow grew legs and disappeared!! We're beginning to think my MOH might have a stealing problem...because we know she stole from her boss, even though in her mind she might not have seen it that way but still she got fired because of it!! And then about a month or so ago, we had $20 go missing and guess what...our Best Man and MOH had been over that day!! We've only know her for 2 years ever since they've been dating so it's possible she could have a problem with stealing and we just never knew about it until she lost her job recently (because of stealing!!) and he doesn't have a job right now either, so maybe she's starting to get desperate because she also has 2 young daughters to take care of!! Here's my other post if you wanna read all the exact details:
So who knows if we'll ever see his wedding ring again...but my hubby was starting to get depressed without it on his finger...it was soo sad, but also kinda cute at the same time!! Anyways, so we went and ordered another ring yesterday which made me feel pretty depressed and upset knowing that whenever this ring comes in, it still won't be the "original" wedding ring that I put on my hubby's finger the day we got married, which was 8/7/09. My hubby was happy to know that another ring is on it's way (it had to be special ordered cause he wears a size 14), but then after we got home he said it just made him even more pissed off about it to think that if my MOH did actually steal it (they both know we've been looking for it all week), now we've actually had to go through with ordering a new ring!! I hope to God we're wrong about this and it'll just show up one day, and if so then I guess he'll just end up having a spare ring...one to wear for "good" and one that he could actually wear when he's doing mechanic work and he wouldn't have to worry as much about it. Honestly, it wasn't really that expensive to begin with so we could afford to replace it since it's not gold or silver and doesn't have any diamonds or anything, but it's titanium which is exactly what my hubby wanted...still it's just the principle of it that we had to go out and order a new ring and even when it does come in, it still won't be the same ring that I put on his finger the day we said "I DO"!!

I'm soo upset!!
My hubby lost his wedding ring!!! :-(
WARNING: This is gonna be a LONG post!!
We haven't even been married for 3 months yet (our wedding was on 8/7/09) and my hubby already lost his wedding ring yesterday!! A long time ago I made a post about how upset I was when he told me that he really didn't even plan on wearing it that much because he's a mechanic and he didn't wanna wear it while he's doing mechanic work...but his other excuse was that he's just not really a "ring person." But he completely changed his mind about wearing it after we got married and he wore it ALL the time (except for when doing mechanic work), and he would always say that he felt naked without it!! It was so cute cause whenever he would realize he wasn't wearing it after working or doing anything that was really messy, he would always say "I need my ring!!" and that was my cue to go get it out of the medicine cabinet where he kept it safe and then I would always put it on his ring finger for him...I just loved doing that and knowing that he actually WANTED to wear it (which is something that he honestly didn't think would ever happen)!!
So now we're both pretty devastated that he lost it yesterday...he said he really feels like a bad husband now and he just doesn't feel the same without it cause he had actually gotten soo used to wearing it (at least whenever he wasn't working)!! We retraced his steps and looked everywhere we could possibly think of...but he says in his mind he knows 100% that he sat it in the medicine cabinet in the same safe little spot he always puts it in, but we still checked everywhere we could possibly think of just to be sure!! So now unfortunately that brings me to say the only other possible thing we think could have happened to it...we think my MOH might have stolen it!!! My MOH and our Best Man (they're boyfriend and girlfriend) were the only other people in our house yesterday!! I know this may sound horrible to be accusing someone of stealing his ring...but honestly the last time they came over (well, actually 2 times ago) we had $20 that just went missing and the bad thing was that it was actually wedding gift money from my hubby's grandparents!!
Anyways, so we never really did get to the bottom of what happened with the $20 but my hubby always suspected that it might have actually been my MOH because her boss accused her of stealing money from her one time...what actually happened was her boss gave her $20 to fill up her gas and she only put $15 in it and then spent the other money to buy herself some cigarettes!! In some people's minds this may not seem like stealing, but obviously her boss thought so and she got fired because of it and some other reasons too!! We've only known her for 2 years (ever since they started dating) and I guess maybe we just don't know her well enough to know if stealing is something that she has a problem with!! But she did say one time that she didn't consider it stealing from her boss to buy the cigarettes and that she would never steal from anybody UNLESS (and I quote) if she "was mad enough at somebody about something"!!! So I guess she's admitting that YES she would steal from somebody if she felt pushed that far!! Anyways, so they've both been really struggling lately financially and neither one of them has a job...but then again neither one of them has really taken much initiative to get up and actually go look for one everyday either (cause they usually sleep in til at least noon or later)!! My hubby said that she did leave very mad yesterday because they claimed that we owe them money for something...but we've had to give them $20 here and there just so they could have gas money or food money and then I bought her dress and her shoes since they couldn't afford it (and honestly she was my last minute MOH whenever my original MOH found out she was pregnant and her due date was ON our wedding day)!! She gave me her dress back after the wedding so that I can hopefully sell it, but then she "lost" her shoes...so that's my money that she lost....but somehow they claim that WE still owe THEM some money!! So she was mad about that when they left and she was also mad cause she asked if our Best Man could stay with us for a little while if they get evicted soon (which it looks like they're probably going to!!) and then her and her 2 daughters would move in with her parents temporarily. My hubby said no because we just don't have the room and my parents are coming in town soon for the holidays and because we know how it would be once he was there...he wouldn't pay us rent or chip in at all and would basically just mooch off of the situation. Anyways, so apparently she was pretty mad yesterday when they left...and he thinks based on what she had said before about stealing only if she was really mad about something then he wouldn't put it past her to steal his ring!! It wasn't until after they left that my hubby discovered his ring was missing from the spot he was pretty much 100% sure he left it in...which was in the medicine cabinet!! I just really don't even know what to think about it at this point...it wasn't a really expensive ring, so it could be replaced if we can't ever find it or figure out what happened to it...but it just wouldn't be the same because it wouldn't be the ring that I put on his finger the day we said "I DO"!!!
PS - Sorry this was such a long post ladies...but not only am I sad and upset about the fact that we can't find his ring...but it's even worse to think that maybe it's not just lost, it might actually be STOLEN!!!
