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?”
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.
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.
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!
In today’s economy, people are trying to save money everywhere they can. So when Sophie told me that her daughter wants to learn how to play the violin, I suggested that she check out different places to buy used instruments for orchestra
