Less Than Three Weeks...and Counting
For example, last week David's cake topper came in the mail...an oil pumping unit. It's actually a small toy and is battery-operated. I can't wait to see what our cake baker says when she sees it! The last time I talked to her, she was excited to see what David came up with. I think she is going to laugh herself silly when she sees what she has to work with!
On Friday night, my mother and I made a semi-last-minute trip to Hobby Lobby to pick up some items I was still needing. Ribbon for my cake, the ring bearer pillow and thread to hem my bridesmaids' skirts were the items we were after...but, when we got there we discovered ALL bridal items were on sale, 50% off. Sweet! I found some flutes for $50 that I bought for just $25.
Now, I don't know if it's just me, but that has been one of the wedding items that the price has just floored me on. Everywhere flutes and servers appear to be priced anywhere from $50-$300. Ummm, excuse me? It's a couple glasses and a cake server...where's the extra "umph" causing the 500% mark-up? Regardless...
Unfortunately, Hobby Lobby didn't have the matching servers, but hopefully in the next couple weeks I can find a deal on those. Honestly, that's all I have left to purchase (other than wedding party and parental gifts, of course). How exciting is that?
This past Saturday, David and I had engagement pictures taken and judging from the sneak peek I received today...they're going to be fabulous! My photographer's blog is here. Hopefully, he'll post some of us soon and you'll see what I'm talking about...
I'm loving engaged life, and every day we're getting closer and closer to married life! I can't wait!
