Lost time and the holidays

Image
So at some point during the last couple of weeks the power cord to my netbook died. Completely. And so slowly but surely the power to my beloved netbook also died. NOOOOO!!! And because at heart I am a lazy bitch who refuses to go upstairs and use her desktop computer, I have not blogged in a really, really long time.

Let's see what has happened since we spoke last.

We took the parents (Seth's and mine) to see the wedding venue. They all loved it. Yay. They said we made a good choice. These are some photos we snapped while touring.





We had a holiday party, and the night before a cookie baking party. The next photos are from that. :) 











I have much more to say and share, but this is good for now. I have missed you all. I promise not to go away for so long ever again.

So... there has been a bit of a shake up in our little world recently. Seth found out a week or so ago that as of January 1 he no longer has a job in the school district he has been working in for the last 5 years. They had a massive budget shortfall this year and after a ridiculous double levy (property and income tax hikes) didn't pass they cut almost all extracurricular activities and the 26 custodians with the least seniority, of which Seth was number 13. I know we will make it through this, and hopefully he can find a job relatively fast, but the timing is awful.

My life is a bit hectic right now, but some significant wedding action has happened in the next couple of weeks.

On Saturday Seth and I ordered our Save the Dates and our invitations/RSVPs for the wedding. We ordered them from 123print.com and for all it was less than $150. They are really cute too.



I also bought the beads and wire, so I can get started on my bouquet and it is going to be gorgeous. I am going to get started on it in the next couple of weeks. :) 
Then today I got the call from David's Bridal that my dress was in. So I picked it up today, so we can start embellishing the belt and get the fabric to make my jacket. I just need undergarments and shoes now. We are getting there.
