SA Wednesday

It smells of wildfire outside, both up at the house and down here at work.

YUCK!

I'm not so good with the advice... Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?

    I have 38 days!!! All I can think about is this damn wedding... I am ready for it to be over.. Ready for people to stop looking at me for answers.. My answer now is I DONT CARE. I keep forgetting about the light at the end of the tunnel. The honeymoon!!!! 1 week on the beach with no one asking me about candy, and dj's, and rsvp cards, and room reservations... I cannot wait.

    Oop we're the 24th!  Pretty much the same.  SO CLOSE!! We went to the courthouse downtown on our lunch hour-- the process actually took about 5 minutes but the WAITING was 45 minutes!  We were hungry and crabby.  I recommend filling out the info online before you leave so it goes faster.

    The Records building on Main downtown.  It's not too far from my office.   They just had 1 person doing the marriage licenses, and so it was taking forever.  I'd probably recommend going at around 2-ish or so on an off peak time!

    I have 1 month!!!

    I finally found those purple Nina heels today that I asked everyone to keep an eye out for a year ago, and of course they are too tall for my poor arthritic ankle. Frown
    Fortunately I did find a cute pair of purple shoes with a lower heel that I can totally walk well in. I'm so excited! Here they are:


    And we got Daniel's ring ordered and started ordering his custom suit off of Indochino.com. I love how I've been asking him about this for the last few months and he just now decides that he cares enough to order new things. Boys are silly.

    We went to the one in Plano and were in and out pretty quick.  I think we went around like 11 though.  But it wasn't bad at all! :-)

    We went to the one in Dallas near Bachman Lake and were in and out in less than 30 minutes.  Ditto on the rec of filling out your information online.  Is it still cash only?  That completely threw three couples for a loop the day we went in.

    You're right, Julie, it is still cash only. We went as far as to bring exact change, but you don't have to be that prepared ;) We just wanted to make sure we wouldn't have to go back!

    I've had a kiddo out for a few days, and today his counselor emailed that his father passed away on Saturday.  Young guy with four kids, apparently no health issues.

    Courtney, have you tried any of the shops in downtown Plano?  There is Sutton Place, which has a mixture of antique furniture and (mostly) regular furniture they've treated to make it look antique.  There's also a consignment furnishings store called Pearls that gets new stuff in almost every day -- FI and I found a bunch of crystal there for just $75!

    And La Foofaraw might have something, too, if you wanted to try it.
