Second, wow, has this week just flown by! I can't believe it is Thursday already! Where did the week go? I've been pretty swamped at work this week -- our department has been really behind because of so many people leaving the company recently.
Anyway, I spent the weekend up at Barry's parents. His cousin was having a birthday party that we had to attend. We went up early and all went up to the Casino in Ajax. Let me just say, I do not have any luck when it comes to Casinos or gambling of any kind. Zero luck. So, we took $100 each, that was it. I was on my very last spin on a nickel machine when I won $400 - yes! Barry ended up losing his $100, so we were only up $200, but still. I've never left a casino actually UP money! Which is why I don't want to go again anytime soon!
Other then that, I have been working on jewelry orders and making wedding plans - which I find to be stressful already!
I used to watch that show Four Weddings and be amazed at the kind of money people spend on weddings. I always in the mind frame of -- that is a down payment on a house, people! Are you crazy?! - Well, I am now realizing how not-crazy those people were. Weddings are crazy expensive! My plan of a small backyard wedding ceremony/reception is still going to cost a pretty penny. Right now, I am looking into venues, as well -- I'm thinking now it might even be cheaper to have the ceremony/reception somewhere because that means we won't have to rent chairs, tables, linens, everything, that we would need for a backyard wedding.
It is all so confusing. I am very decisive as it is, this wedding planning is going to drive me crazy!
Well, it's only been about a week and I have already researched venues, caterers, rentals, disc jockeys, flowers, decorations, wedding cakes, photographers, etc. I haven't decided on any 1 thing yet. However, I do have my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses picked out -- Just not placing the order for a little while. We have also come up with our guest list, only 55 people, and I figure only 45-50 will actually come, but we will plan for 55 right now while getting estimates and things.
I have a feeling once I settle on a venue, or stick with the backyard idea - then everything will come together at that point. At least, I hope it will a little bit!
