Weddings Galore!

2 of my cousins got married this last weekend, therefore I went to 2 weddings this last weekend. It really got me back on track with the whole planning process! I'm becoming a bit more motivated to do some things. I spent all day reading magazines and looking online for table linen

Things I learned from the two weddings I went to this past weekend.

1. I don't want a wedding like either of them, but a mixture of the two. One of them was somewhat formal with a sit down dinner and a DJ and favors clearly purchased from the knot. The other was a very casual backyard bbq where there were fun games and lots of cute children running around, playing ping-pong and badminton. They also had very cute pint glasses as favors that were customized! I'll be looking into this for my wedding!

2. Planning a wedding can be very stresful, and it can be not so bad. It just depends on how you go about it. One of my cousins pulled me aside and said NEVER to plan a wedding because it was FAR too stressful and whatever I did, make sure it wasn't like her mom (my aunt) also said the same thing. I'm going to make sure I don't let perfection get in the way of just planning a really fun event that everyone will enjoy rather than an event that is stressful and will give me a hernia.

3. I want to have other things to do than just get drunk and dance. I haven't been drinking since FI and I have been trying for a baby (!!!) so I couldn't partake and then I didn't necessarily feel comfortable to dance. Don't get me wrong, I did dance a bit but I got bored with it quickly and then just sat and got eaten by mosquitos. On the other hand, my other cousin had so many games and fun things to do all day that I was never bored. I said before I wanted to have some fun things to do like an air hockey table (I asked the venue coordinator and she said that it was fine as long as I knew we would have to lose a table and I would have to carry it in and out).

I guess that is what I've learned from now...I hope my wedding planning isn't too stressful. As of yet, it is very fun!

Also, if anyone is in the market for table linens, they are having a sale over at and you get 30% off white, black and ivory tablecloths and if you use the coupon code fbaug10 you get an additional 10% off any purchase! (expires 8/31/2010)

Until next time

Oh My Blog Award!!!

Hey All,

Sorry it has been a minute since I last wrote...but some exciting news!

Lauren over at The Journey to "We" had awarded me with the Oh My Blog award!!! YAY this is my first award, thanks so much Lauren!

A) Get very excited that you got the coolest award EVER!

B) To accept the OMB Award, choose ONE of the following options:

1.Get very drunk and blog for 15 minutes straight. (or for as long as you can focus)

2.Write a "Soundtrack of your childhood" post.

3.Make your next blog post a video blog. (talk to the camera about anything)

4.Take a picture of yourself first thing in the morning, before you do anything else (hair, make up, etc) and post it.

5.Write about your most embarrassing moment.

I'll pick #4...because I hardly ever wear makeup anyway. I had just woken up from a nap when this was taken (I'm working very early shifts so I take lots of naps!)

My hair is a bit frazzled...but otherwise not too embarrassing.

C) Pass the award on to at least three other awesome bloggers.

1. Ten Eleven Ten - Your wedding is fast approaching yet you always find the time to blog. I like your writing style and your creativity is amazing! I have gotten much inspiration and tips from your blog.

2. Happily After All- Your blog inspired the creation of my blog, for which I must award you. I know you are already married, but you continue to inspire and create.

3. I actually can't think of a third (I would give it to Lauren who gave it to me, or Ms. Teacher, who gave it to her...but that would be pretty lame!)

Until next time!
