Groom's Dinner & Request, please

I bought them t-shirts to wear on their honeymoon....the groom's dinner was okay. Taco bar was okay. They went over who is walking who down the aisle, what time to be at the golf club, etc...I think we are ready!!! 

Daughter wasn't feeling so good on Sunday. Tightness in her chest, temp of 102 and coughing...and hubby to be started coughing too...So, If you have any time to pray for everyone to be HEALTHY for the wedding, I would deeply appreciate it. Also, there is a 60% chance of rain on Saturday..morning, "they" say...again, if you have the time, please pray for perfect weather...THANK YOU from the Top & Bottom of my HEART!

I'll take as many photo's as I can at the wedding. I'll post again early next week with all the wedding details!

 "Thank You" to all of you who left the nicest comments on Susan's blog and mine about the Saturday Spotlight...XO!!

Whimsy Jar Swap & Crafting

 I recently joined a Whismy Jar Swap that Jessica had. My partner was Lilla at Just Lilla and she sent me the jar above loaded with all you see in the photo below :) She lives in Hawaii :) The circle lace piece is something her 90 year old Mom made. It goes on top of your cup to keep the bugs out! She also send me Hankies, buttons lace & more! THANK YOU, Lilla for the jar filled with creating fun!

 This is the jar I sent to Lilla with all that you see below. :)

Yesterday I was in the mood to make some cards and tags! I seem to work with my table loaded with stuff...hmm!!! Yesterday it was cloudy with light rain.  It was a good day to stay inside :)

ONLY 8 Days until the WEDDING!!! I think we are all ready! Saturday is the Groom's dinner :)

I'll have another post this week, on Saturday. I'm going to be "Spotlighted" on someones blog:) Stay tuned and come back on Saturday!

Make up day at Macy's

 Okay, this isn't really the "BEFORE", but I didn't want to scare you right of the bat with the real before.

 Here is the REAL BEFORE, not the best angle! LOL!!!  Looking a little "puffy" LOL!!!

The "AFTER" for both of us...dear daughter didn't want me to show you her, before, so here are her 2 afters!! I love the lip color and did buy that! We went to Macy's and had our makeovers done at the Bobbi Brown cosmetics.  Daughter does NOT like to wear lip color, but I think this is the perfect color for her. They used a "gel" eyeliner which I also bought! I do enjoy make up!! Just "enhancing" what God gave me.

Here is the Bride to Be! Of course I got a little teary...They consultants were very nice and it was "free"... we did buy a few products and gave them a tip.  It was fun!

Hubby cleaned the area rugs today! Fresh and clean!!!  Crossed off more on my "to do" list. Next Saturday is the Groom's dinner. It's a Taco Bar at a local restaurant. About 20 will gather.  I start a Bible study on Tuesday. It's a Beth Moore study. I think her studies are great. Thursday is daughter's birthday.

I hope the weather for daughter's wedding is just like today! It was Perfect! Sunshine, high 60's, a light breeze..Perfect!

I hope your weekend is going Perfect!

Recent Finds & Flowers for Wedding Reception

 As promised...recent finds that included Vintage Halloween. Sweet nut cup, noise maker, blow mold, hat and honeycomb pumpkins. It's been a long time since I've found some Halloween at great prices :)  I'm not sure if anything above will get to the booths!

Very cool old cherry candy boxes and a little "RED" going on! :) 

 On Saturday, daughter, one of her bridesmaids and I put together the center pieces for her wedding. I thing they turned out pretty nice.

They will be in the center of the table, underneath a mirror on top of a hot pink runner that is on top of a black tablecloth, with white napkins...I'll have to show you that after the wedding :) It is ONLY 20 DAYS AWAY!!!

Thank you for all the nice comments about my "new" bathroom...

Grandgirl starts 6th grade on the 2nd of Sept. I pick up my dress on Friday as well as daughters. I had mine hemmed. Saturday we are going for a "makeover". I'll try to take some photos of that. Daughter's birthday is the 11th...we took son out on Friday for his birthday and then Saturday evening there was a BBQ at his home. A friend of his cooks the best ribs...I Don't eat RIBS, however these are AWESOME! His friend enters local rib contests. YUM!!! He has a HUGE cooker and cooks them all day! He even makes his own sauces...

I just have a couple of project to get done before the wedding. Everything is falling into place. SO thankful!
Take care.
