Wedding Wednesday

  • Candy Bars

we decided to have a candy bar for our favors. BEST. IDEA. EVER.  I wasn’t always set on this idea. I had thought about making cute little individual gifts for all of our guest… and then I looked at our guest list of 400+ people and I became frightened. No way! So the Candy Bar was our best option. We spent about $300 on our candy bar and while that might seem really expensive… you have to realize that this candy bar was for a HUGE wedding! $300 for favors means that we spent less than $1.00 on favors for each guest. (And I got some awesome apothecary jars that now reside on our mantle!). Momma and I bought the candy

The Goals

  • January

My first GOALS post. This is how much I NEED to be writing down goals…..I had a “Goal” to blog about “GOALS” since January 1st…. and now it’s January 25th and I’m just now getting around to it! Get my point?? I think blogging about some monthly goals may be extremely beneficial for me for many reasons. 1. It will hold me accountable. 2. It will hold me accountable and 3. It will really hold me accountable. That’s what I need! My to-do lists are wonderful but there are always a few things that I really need to just get accomplished and I keep re-writing them on my daily to-do lists and before I know it, they disappear and never get done. So!

Good Things

  • Personalized Stampers

is really unnecessary… I realize this. Michael and I are trying to cut back on the unnecessary purchases, not eating out as much, etc. etc. So when this personalized stamper came in the mail a few days ago, I really felt the need to exclaim that “This will save us money in the long run! It will! And look how awesome it is!”. I immediately began stamping every envelope that had come in the mail that day (wasting our precious ink). He agreed that is was pretty sweet (and I don’t normally use the word “sweet” so you know it’s really cool:).  I love it and it makes me want to crank out some thank you cards!
