These two prizes came in the mail today - two items I had won on blog giveaways. One is a crocheted beret and the other is custom-made guest book for our wedding, with pictures of us inside of it. Hey, you never know!
This is the text I sent, letting people know my bridal shower was being canceled. A big storm was hitting the east coast. We were right in that variant zone, where we could get a lot or we could get nothing...
Eileen and I stopped by the reception hall to get a look of the layout to figure out centerpieces and other things like that. She works for another venue and is in charge of weddings there. This is what our tables will look like on our wedding day (plus centerpieces).
On Saturday, we needed some help picking up a washer/dryer we found on Craig's List. Well, we stopped at Costco on the way, found a couch for a great price, compared very quickly at another store - and realized very quickly it was a great deal...so we asked if my dad and Uncle Lou wouldn't mind adding another stop on the way to the washer. They graciously agreed. We realized that the washer/dryer wouldn't fit in the truck w/ the sectional, so we had to stop home so my dad could pick up his truck as well. So, the caravan with the couch headed to pick up the washer/dryer, and then on to the house.
My dad and Uncle Lou were the heroes of the day. We couldn't have done it without them. [My uncle is not as scary as he looks, lol]
This picture is thrown in for good measure....my boys :)
I am going to admit that I am totally cheating by posting this picture under today. I was grading regents and helping James move, so I just did not have the energy to take a picture today. I took this picture a few weeks ago...but since it is the last time my corner will look like that (we moved that chair to the new house), I felt like it would be OK to use it! And this is my favorite corner in my apartment.
Hi all! I'm just a girl whose got some thoughts and stories to share with those who are willing to read. And I'm OK if that's just me. I'm a devoted follower of Jesus, a wife, a high school English teacher on Long Island, a mom to too-many-cats (I blame my husband for that), and hopefully, to a real baby, as soon as God blesses us. I'm 38almost39, been married for almost 3 years, and have lived in NY for my whole life( and that equal TOO LONG!). I've also known Jesus almost my whole life, and that can never be LONG ENOUGH. I believe that the human experience is a mix of the beautiful and the tragic, but the hand of God is able to redeem it all. I'm writing this blog because I need to write this, but I hope it might mean something to you as well.
