Shopping for furniture

Baker drinks tray table

Chris has finally moved out into her own apartment, and I have been trying to help her to furnish it. How exciting – her very first home of her own! I was hoping to get her a nice drinks tray table to accessorize her place. I know she really likes the styles of Baker furniture, and I have been having a really hard time to find baker furniture here in a local store. So I went online to see if there are any local stores that carry it, and I have found a few websites that claim to carry it, but nobody locally. And the websites that I found that show the furniture won’t even list the prices! How frustrating is that!

I hope you have a blessed Easter

Easter was wonderful this year. Michelle was old enough to really enjoy it this year. They had a big Easter egg hunt at church and the child that found the golden egg, got a big surprise inside. It had a $20 bill in it and believe it or not, Michelle found it all by her little self. She came running to me saying “The Easter bunny laid a golden egg but there’s a dollar in it”. A dollar she said. I told her that it was a 20 dollar bill and she looked at me with this serious look on her face and said, “Well when are you taking me shopping?”

Microphone stands

The past few months my friends and I have been going to a local karaoke bar. I’ve gone up there a few times myself, and have been quite annoyed with how tall the microphone stands have been set up. I haven’t been able to figure out how to adjust the height easily. I was thinking about suggesting to the karaoke DJ that he might consider replacing his microphone stand with an atlas ms25. I don’t know him very well, though, and hesitate to make any suggestions until I get to know him better.

Valentines plans for my Valentine

My daughter is the most important thing in the world to me so she’s my Valentine!!! I have a special surprise for her too. We’re going to Chuckie Cheeze for dinner. She absolutely loves that place. There is no sweeter music to a mothers ears than to hear their child laugh and say “Mommy, I sure do love you”. She made me a Valentines card in pre-school and had to give it to me this morning before I dropped her off. She couldn’t wait. I can’t wait to see her face when we pull into the parking lot and she realizes where we are.

Make Your Wedding Guest Book Special

A couple’s wedding guest book can be so much more than just a book that people sign their names as some type of roster sheet to know who attended the wedding. A wedding guest book can be a special place in which friends and family leave words of encouragement and support for the bride and group along with signing in that they were in attendance. How much more special would that be than a plain list of names.

It also doesn’t have to be just a regular book. You could have your guests leave messages for the you in or on something other than I book. For example, how about having everyone sign a picture of the bride and groom. A picture is something you could have framed and display in your home and remember the special day each time you walk past it in your home. I know I personally would see a picture hanging in my home more often than I would dig out a guest book in a box somewhere in the attic.

If you want to go with a more traditional guest book there are many styles that you can choose from to coordinate with your wedding theme and colors. I bet you could even have a guest book custom made to match all of the other decorations. Just remember that the wedding guest book can be for more than just a list of guests in attendance.
