1. Its Raining...
Last night was the best sleep that I have had in a while! Of course it would happen on a Sunday night, and I have to get up and go to work the next morning. This weekend was one busy weekend...and although Darrick and I got in the house early Saturday night, I still didn't feel RESTED Sunday Morning.
2. RECEPTION VENUE-BOOKED!!!!
Wahoooo!!! Saturday morning Darrick and I had a meeting with the wedding coordinator from the catering company we are going with. We knew going into the meeting that we were going to book the location. After booking the location I walked out smiling...its really going to happen! I am getting married next May! I still don't believe it...now I have LOTS of work to do!
3. New Book to Read
I saw this book on another blog and decided to read it. I have purchased many wedding magazines and books on planning for the big day, but I haven't read any books about afterwards. Often we plan for the "big day" but after that day is over, we have to maintain our relationship. I showed the book to Darrick after I bought it and he was just as interested as I was...I read some of a chapter to him this weekend. And we briefly talked about it...it really makes me happy that I am with someone that wants this to work as much as I do. He suggested we read it together...and talk about it! Geeze I LOVE that man!
Summary: Most people spend far more time in preparation for their vocation than they do in preparation for marriage. No wonder the divorce rate hovers around fifty percent.
Gary Chapman, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The 5 Love Languages and marriage counselor, with more than 35 years of counseling couples, believes that divorce is the lack of preparation for marriage and the failure to learn the skills of working together as intimate teammates. This practical book is packed with wisdom and tips to develop a loving, supportive, and mutually beneficial marriage. It's the type of information Gary himself wished he had before he got married.
4. Sunday School
I pretty much go to church every Sunday. Before Darrick and I got together I was also attending Sunday School (small Bible classes held before service Sunday Morning) on a regular basis. After we got together I kind of fell off on attending and so did Darrick. Right now our Sunday school is currently running campaign to get the attendance numbers up for Sunday School classes. Week before last, I attended my first class in about a year, and it really felt good to be back! I told Darrick before I attended that I was going to start going back to Sunday School, he said okay and he was ready Sunday morning to go to Sunday School with me! This weekend was our second weekend in a row attending Sunday School...and it really feels good to be back, and it feels good to be back in Sunday School together!
5. Mary Kay
I am now a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant!
I joined Mary Kay after attending a party that my sister held! Let me first say this company is AMAZING! I know you are thinking that I'm saying this because I just joined, however, I haven't earned one penny from this company yet! I am still in the learning phase...however, even though they are known for skincare and makeup...the company is also out to help women as a whole (on a personal and professional level)! The strive on women looking their best, feeling their best, and always striving for more! I joined because I can bring in some extra money while planning this wedding...and just some extra income altogether while playing in makeup and skincare! I will be posting more on this once I am all set up!
Mary Kay model is God first, family second, career third!
