Tuesday and counting down!

Well here it is just days before this wedding...5 working days to be exact!

I have been busy, busy, busy...and it will only increase from here on out. Today I have lots to keep me busy during the morning...then this afternoon a few errands, get my hair done (a priority!!) and then a meeting at the church where the wedding will be.

This morning I would like to accomplish the rest of the ironing (tulle - have about 2 bolts worth!) and the candle centerpieces that I have decorated and the stuff cut and ready to go for the ones that Sheila has. Then I also need to make the fruit ring for the punch bowl and get that in the freezer. I would really like to make that one of my things to deliver when I go to the cabin where the reception is Wednesday.

Well there goes my cell phone....the day has begun!

Thursday is here!!!

So glad this week is almost over...I actually AM looking forward to next week, although it will be fast and hectic!

I have been checking the weather at weather.com for their 10 day forecast and so far it is NOT looking good that day for an outside reception. I am praying it changes! Right now we are at a 40% chance of rain!

Today I have the rehearsal for the small wedding I am helping with. I am looking forward to this one too since it won't take too much and should be fairly simple to do. That is tonight, but this afternoon I have to grocery shop...I hate grocery shopping! I don't have the menu planned nor do I have any ideas for the menu...so I guess that is something I will be working on between "classes" with my children this morning.

Speaking of the children, they are already up, well except for Christin. And they sure are noisy this morning. I am about to send them out the garage to play if they don't quiet down soon, or I may find a chore or two for them to do.

Back at it!

Well I have determined that even if I don't have anything particular to share I am going to write in my blog a few times a week...not daily right now, but at least a couple times a week just to keep up with it.

Let's see, what HAS been going on? It's been this blasted wedding...and it's in 10 days now! I will be so glad when it's over...not that I hate doing this one in particular, just that there have been so many difficulties, one being communication.

The latest digital layout that I have done is this one...image is clickable for credits. I love how it turned out! I really would like a bit of time to scrap, but don't see that happening anytime in the near future.

On a good note...school is still going well with my children...we have finished the first 9 weeks and are into the 2nd...time is flying by!

I am hoping that today won't be a full blown busy day as the next few surely shall be. It will be the usual stuff and then church tonight. I may have to squeeze in grocery shopping too. Thursday is also not so bad (do have the rehearsal for Bridget's wedding that night though)...but then Friday I have to find flowers for a small wedding I am doing Saturday and make the bouquets/boutonnières (for Bridget) and then I have Club 52 (and I still have 1 layout that needs to be done for that!!!) then back home and up Saturday morning to decorate the church (that shouldn't take but a few hours) then back home and do normal Saturday stuff and then back to the church for the wedding...Sunday at this point looks very nice. THEN Monday starts the big major countdown for the wedding on the 27th. Needless to say we are taking that week off from school...but it was planned into our schedule anyways, so that is nice!
