Sorry this is coming on Monday morning, rather than on Sunday as promised. I am going to blame it on stinkin’ daylight savings time and how badly it throws me off.
I’m writing this post to the lovely sound of my two dogs play-murdering one another and eating lukewarm eggs and bacon and drinking tepid coffee. Be jealous.
Wedding update: Matt and I have found our Officiant for our wedding. She is a very nice woman who has been a Minister since 1989. She is very easy going and is willing to allow us to customize our ceremony – which I really like. I got my cheap dress in the mail from China, feeling very hopeful, and I don’t like it. It was a risky move, and I came out on the losing end. Oh well, it was worth a try, I guess. Who knows, maybe when I pull it out in a month, I’ll like it again. If not, I’ll be going on a dress hunt pretty soon. I just hate the idea of spending SO MUCH money on something that is only going to be worn one time. This weekend we also bought Matt’s ring. So now, the only major things that I need to get taken care of are a dress, flowers, the honeymoon, and making the decorations. We have the venue, catering, cake, DJ, officiant, rings, and cake topper all taken care of. I feel like we’re doing well with still 7.5 months to go.
This past week: Matt and I went out to dinner at a restaurant my dad got us a gift certificate to for our birthdays. I will refrain from mentioning names because I don’t need for people to pinpoint our location. However, I can say that our meal was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was great – we were in a romantic little corner surrounded by an exposed brick wall, the front window, and the glass entryway which had plants hanging down their full length. We are our dinner by candlelight, and it was very sweet. Matt had a salad and a NY strip with green beans and potatoes. I had a delicious chicken dish with a French martini, and we shared a half order of pasta carbonara. Needless to say, this wasn’t a low calorie meal. We finished off by sharing a brownie a la mode with freshly made caramel. Good grief, it was SO good!
I got my “shop” more set up in the basement and started working on some things for the Etsy store – which is currently empty! There will hopefully be a post later this week to show some of the things I am adding to the store. No more customization orders for now – it simply takes WAY too long and isn’t worth the money at the moment. If I can come up with a quicker way to accomplish what I want, then maybe.
Hi ho hi ho… off to work I go! Have a wonderful day!
