Planning a Wedding

I was recently looking at pictures of a friend's wedding and it brought back memories of ours a few years back. What a fun day!! We were engaged for over a year, so we had plenty of time to plan. People may think that made it easier, but it really didn't. There's just so much to get ready for a wedding, bit can get quite stressful with help. I wish I had known about Have you ever heard of them? They are a site that helps brides and grooms plan their wedding and take away some of the stress. They have planning tools, Wedding Ideas, advice, photos, online registry, and more! Very impressive if you ask me. I urge anyone planning a wedding to check into this site and not only get ideas, but also tips to save the gold bullion you've worked so hard to save.

Walking around Walmart

Last night Scott went to Walmart at midnight in hopes to get a Wii for my parents. Unfortunately he had to wait to see if they had any, so he did some walking around and told me how many weight loss pills they had around there. Usually during the day they have so many people there that it's hard to see everything, but at midnight there's not hardly anyone there so he was able to see all fo their product and it was weird to see all of these diet pills. I guess it's quite popular among people these days to lose weight. I wonder if works??


There are so many people taking some kind of diet pills these days. It seems like they do work sometimes, then others you hear people say that they don't work at all. I'm thinking the best way to diet and lose weight is simply to exercise daily to some extent and eat healthy foods. This has worked for me in the past and then you're not just putting pills into your body.nk it will work for you. It's definitely worth trying so you'

Christmas Ideas

I was asking Scott what he'd like for Christmas this year, and I had to chuckle at the fact that a majority of the things he was telling me were for Golf. I love that he has a sport he enjoys and that he can play quite often...however it's kind of funny that he's wanting all of these things for Golf when he can't even play it for another 6 months or so. Here in the midwest we have some pretty bitter and snowy winter. I suppose he's thinking he could get a little practice inside swinging his clubs. We'll have to see....I definitely think getting him golf balls is a good idea though. That's a perfect stocking stuffer and something he'll be able to use if he gets those clubs he's been wanting for so long.

Snow, Snow, Go Away!

The joys of living here in the midwest. I don't mind snow around Christmas it's so beautiful with all the lights up everywhere. However...getting a half foot of snow over night is not something I care for very much. It's bitter cold here and we got lots of snow last night. It's pretty, but can also make driving very difficult. Scott travels out of town for weather like this is no fun. Thank goodness for cell phones. I take comfort in knowing that he can always call me if he needs to when he is out on the roads on days like today. Hopefully some of this snow melts a bit over the next few days.

Speaking of Scott's job....we have had one banquet to go to since he started working there. It was mainly to get to know everyone, as well as the receiving of awards for those who have sold what they consider to be a large amount of product. It was fun to go and see what Scott actually does in his job and what he will be doing in years to come. Upon leaving they had a surprise for all of the wives. We were given Samsonite luggage and bath and body gift sets. It was great! I could definitely get used to that.

Scott's Job

Scott loves his new job. It's much different than the job he had before. He has a lot more freedom, has the schedule everyone dreams of, and even gets many promotional items. He works with a lot of different representatives who give him gear to market their businesses. The other day he came home from a meeting with a bag full of promotional pens and other things. It's nice that he has so many perks with this job and loves it so much.
