I’m so excited that the mid season winter tv breaks are going to be over. I’ve been dying to see some of my favorite shows and catch up on the story of my favorite characters. I’m also excited to start watching the New Episode of Merlin. That show has not been on air since this past summer I believe. I was going through withdrawals.
Over the past month or so I have been forced to watch reruns of shows on Netflix. In a way I actually used it as an opportunity to watch shows that I never watched before. I did the same thing during the summer too. I watched every season of Lost because I never watched a single episode while it aired. I also watched Drop Dead Diva which was pretty good. It was a funny legal comedy. This Winter I’ve been watching My Boys. I been rather enjoying this show actually. It’s has a very laid back and funny group of friends and just seems to relax me when I turn it on.
What do you do during the off season of your favorite television shows? Do you watch the reruns as they air or do you use that time to spend with family? Or, do you watch shows that you have never watched before like I have been doing?
Wedding favors are little tokens of appreciation that you send home with your guests as a thank you for supporting you in your new marriage. Wedding favors can be personalized, functional, affordable, and even consumable. The favors you chose can enhance your wedding theme and style and give everyone a lasting memory of what fun they had at your wedding.
I personally enjoy practical wedding favors. It’s nice when some one gives me something that I will be able to use over and over again. I would try to select something that would work for both men and women so no one feels left out. Or, I bet you could go with two different favor options, one for all of the men and then a different selection for the woman. Maybe you could get the men a nice key ring and the woman a fancy candle.
Favors don’t have to cost a lot of money. You can get little favor bags or boxes and fill them with your favorite tasty treat and place a personalized sticker on it and you have an easy and inexpensive wedding favor. It’s good to note that usually when you buy more of something you can probably get it for a smaller price per unit. This is especially helpful when you have a large number of guests and you want to offer something to everyone.
Lady Bug and I decided it would be a lot of fun to have a tea party in our pajamas. We invited all of her favorite stuffed animals and dolls too. We set the table with Lady Bug’s new tea party set that she got for Christmas.
I worked on preparing the food while she tended to the decorations. Lady Bug set the table with her new set and even got out some decorative items from our craft box. She drizzled sparkle confetti on the table and made cute little place setting cards for each of her guests.
Instead of tea we had some deliciously warm hot cocoa. In addition to the hot cocoa we had blueberry muffins, fresh fruit salad, creamy yogurt, and a little bit or orange juice. It was soo much fun watching her place food on the plates for her guests.
Everything tasted great and we indulged ourselves at the table chit chatting away for a good hour or more. It was a really fun and exciting way to have our breakfast together. I’m sure we’ll remember this morning for a long time to come. It’s all about making the every day normal moments in our lives special. We could have eaten breakfast in front of the television, instead we chose to make a wonderful memory.
As I was looking through some of the bridal magazine Heather brought over I found a really neat section on wine wedding favors. How neat would it be to receive a wine wedding favor.
There are a variety of different options to choose from when it comes to wine wedding favors. You can offer wine stoppers in a shape that will compliment your theme. For example a star fish for a beach wedding or a snow flake for a winter wedding. I would love to see a double heart wine stopper myself.
Couples can give their guests personalized wine glasses The glasses can commemorate the special event with the names and date of the bridge and groom. Every time the glasses are used they will be reminded of the happy couple and the commitment they made.
Coasters are another option that can be elegant or simple. They come in both cork or glass and can add a touch of flair to your table depending on the design you choose. This option is also very functional and really who couldn’t use a nice set of coasters. These could make great gifts for people that elect not to drink wine or other alcoholic beverages.
There really is something for everyone when it comes to wine wedding favors. They also make great last minute additions to any wedding because there are so many flexible options.
Every year on New Year’s day people all over the world celebrate by making New Year’s resolutions. Why do we wait until the new year to make a resolution? There is no better time for a change than the present.
What do you do if it’s March and you think you need to get in better shape, or drink more water, or eat healthier? Do you wait the rest year in order to make a change? Or do you decide to just get up and do it with no other motivation?
Is the new year itself just the motivation to make the changes in your life and nothing else? Would you still be making these changes even if it were not the new year? I’m not really sure myself.
I am not normally the kind of person to make a New Year’s resolution. This is probably because I don’t want to be held accountable and I am probably trying to secretly avoid potential failure.
This year I decided to go ahead and make a resolution. My resolution is simple, to enjoy every day and be happy for what I have not for what I don’t. Did you make a New Year’s resolution? If you did, what did you chose and why?
