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.

Wedding Decorations For Every Style and Budget

Wedding decorations can rank right up there with the bride’s dress when it comes to stress levels in planning a wedding. It doesn’t have to be stressful though. You can start by flipping through some wedding and bridal magazines or surfing wedding websites online to get some ideas.

A great way to determine what wedding decorations you would like to have at your wedding and reception would be to first select a theme. Once you have a wedding theme it will make choosing your decorations so much easier. In addition to a theme, choosing a color scheme can steer you in the direction of decorations you light like. Ask yourself what kind of style or look are you going for, elegant and classic, or modern and refined? No matter what your style is there is something out there that will fit into your vision.

There are wedding decorations for every budget, from caviar and diamonds high on down from there. You can even have your wedding decorations custom made. This is great for every bride because she’ll be able to have exactly what she wants. With custom designed decorations you can make sure all of your decorations match or compliment each other well if you have the same company do everything.

A Simple New Year’s Eve at Home

Lady Bug and I are going to stay up late tonight to watch the ball drop. We did a fun craft and made glasses to wear that have the number 2015 in gold and silver. This is the first year that I’ve let her stay up late to celebrate with me. I got us noise makers and of course we’ll bang on pots and pans. It wouldn’t be New Years without champagne, but I got us some kid sparkling cider instead. Lady Bug will love the bubbles and toasting with her mommy.

Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year’s Eve!
