    Well I ended up buying a beverage container from target for $19.99 the one I was spray painting did turn out they way I wanted, so i'll still sue it but just at bbqs. -- I wanted the wedding one more sleek. I found a great purfume at Victoria's Secret for the wedding, I'm in love with -- the one I was at last night didn't carry the wedding lingerie collection, so i'll be checking there website out today. I think I found a girl to recreate a hair style for me....and I'm going to print a program tonight and see how it looks.

    Thanks Alf - I am trying. . . I think the stress and stuff is getting me. Not wedding related - other stuff. . . we will have to catch up. Not to mention Tuesday evening right before the end of the day, my union received word we are going to be furloughed at least two days out of the month . . . that is 400.00 roughly and it starts next month. I am stressin!
