I MISS YOU ALL
I have missed you all soo much!!!! It has been a long few months: My daughter got into her 1st car accident and mees her car up petty bad, I loss my job..Ok loss is not the right word " I WAS LAID OFF"...like that sounds better, and I failed 2 of my classes and had to take them over again.....What does all of that have in common? MONEY THAT WAS TO GO ON THE WEDDING!!!
But Im ok and this is goin to work. I have always been cheap sooo Lets see how much I can get for soo little. I have soo much still to do. OH DID I TELL YOU my daughter is graduating this summer and I have a godson on the way this spring...and what does that equal MORE MONEY....this is now becomin funny.
SO he is my list of things to do this month:
PICK MY DRESS AND ORDER IT
That thought just made me sleepy...I need a nap....I will try to finish my list later...THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT I LOOK ON THE SITE EVERYDAY and become alittle envy to see how much all of you have done and how happy everyone is (for the most part..give or take a rant or too)...LOL
I have my girls dresses..YEAH!!!! and I think they like them. But I think thats all I have done. Im soo not into planning I know what I like and what I want but I cant get into it. I still wish we could go to the church and just do it
OOOHHH and did I tell you that the church only holds 175....and we cant agree on music and people keep tellin me that I have to curl my hair I hate curling my hair..the way it smells and feels..YUCK...I like it when The King put his hands thru my hair but these people dont care. Oh yeah and I want feathers and they tell me no or they turn their nose up at it. I dont know how this turn into a vent but you all I got..LOL
I think I have him on my side about having people eat before we get there.
OK I FEEL BETTER!!!! THANKS
Ask a Question
I want to turn things on its head
Here we go again me wantin to chang the world ..ok maybe not the world but the way we do things....
LET THEM EAT BEFORE WE GET THERE
I know I know...."you cant do that"...but why not?
Most brides say the cant eat or dont enjoy the food soooo why should the guest have to wait for us to get there?
I was thinkin...after the wedding the wedding party can do the pictures, the guest can go to the hall and eat dinner...have the lady put the wedding party's plate to the side....and we can get the party started when we come in. We can have stations of finger foods during the dancing part..
So what ya think Think my mother will disown me???
JUST A VENT
I found a hall...over a month ago....gave her a deposit...and SHE JUST CASHED THE CHECK two days ago....almost a MONTH....who does that ???? no more checks for her...chashier's only.....YUCK
OK I FEEL BETTER!!!!
THANKS FOR LETTIN ME YELL
Ask a Question
Hey ladies!!!! and how are you doin??? LOL..
Ok here we go did anyone order their dress online and if so which site and how was is??? I have fallin in love with a dress but Im cheap and to spend $4,000 on a dress to wear for a few hours and then to be put in a box makes no sense TO ME....let me say that again makes no sense TO ME!!!! You all have been very kind to me and I dont want any hate mail...BIG SMILE
So for those who have done this online Please help out a cheap bride....Or just say Hi!!!!
BRING ON THE BURN!!!!
I found a trainer and the best part its FREE!!!! She is great!!! she did everything pictures measurment bp and heart...and 20 min into the workout, I passed out..LOL...my fault didnt eat before I went.
