Silver Linings...kinda long.

Hey y'all. I haven't been on much because things have been hectic and borderline stressful for the last few days or so. Some wedding related, some not, but it is all a headache just the same. I didn't come to complain though...just wanted to thank those of you who sent me a text or PM or FB message checking on me. These knottie-ships certainly do crossover into the realm of friendships and for that I am grateful.

I will have to do my best to catch up on what I've missed and search for a siggy pic since I don't have one of what mine should look like.

I don't have any recent checks, but I did have some pleasant surprises over the past day or two (hence my silver linings thread title) that I want to share:

1st - I disputed something on my credit report thinking that it was a shot in the dark since I didn't have many details...they investigated and took it off. My credit was fine even with the disputed item, but who wouldn't appreciate a 18 point jump in your score?!? I sure did. I think some of it came from paying down some things when FI and I pulled our reports, but I'm guessing them taking the item off helped as well.

2nd - I thought I had lost the receipt from where I bought all 8 pairs of shoes for my bridal party on my credit card. We ended up having to go with different shoes since these are nowhere near the color of the swatch. I went crazy looking for it for two days then said a little prayer before losing hope and lo and behold, it turned up all sticky with spilled fruit juice in the bottom of the teacher bag that I carry my snacks in. Go figure...

3rd - A friend of mine sent me a text today saying that my FI and I were featured on a new local online bridal guide. I sent info a while back at the request of my planner and we were featured. Here is the link: www.oh-brides.com. Warning: These are pics from the engagement session that I hated...the one that led to me switching photographers so it's nothing great, but it made me smile anyway. They also have a typo which irks me, but for today, I will say "WHATEVER" to that too!

Hope you all are well. Miss you much and as soon as God sees me through this holding pattern, I will be back to chat with you all and clog up the boards as usual with my randomness. :)

    Thanks y'all. Think God has a way of letting us know that He doesn't forget what we're going through and that He won't put any more on us than we can bear.

    Thanks, shesheduke. :) I am trying to figure out what to do with my hair for the next session. I think he wants it curly and I kind of do too, but I'm SCURRED! ;)
