My bouquet!

Posted on Mar 24, 2009 under Flowers | Comments are off

This past Friday night Darrell and me went and picked up my preserved bouquet!!! It looks amazing! It really looks the same as it did in September, over 6 months ago!!!! Of course the stems are gone and it’s been put in a glass container, but we both love it! It is now in our curio cabinet and I will try to get a picture of it on here (along w/ the picture of my dress that I promised!) I can’t wait for everyone to see it!!

My dress is back!!!!!

My dress finally came back! It is all preserved in the museum method! It looks AMAZING! It’s clean, and it just looks perfect, I couldn’t be happier! I’m know for sure I made the right decision on picking the museum method vs. the squished in a small box method! Plus the great thing is, you are actually able to wear the dress again! Not that I am going to be, but just knowing that I could if I wanted to is great! Plus I can actually show it to people, the whole thing, not just the top part! Hopefully, I’ll be able to get a picture up here soon of what it looks like preserved!!! I’m so happy about it! :o)

Wedding DVD’s

Posted on Jan 07, 2009 under Pix, Video & Music | Comments are off

Last week we FINALLY got our wedding DVD’s. An edited and an unedited copy. It was very exciting to watch the wedding all over again. If anyone is interested, let me know! However, we are having troubles with the guy who did them. We are supposed to get 4 more copies of the edited version, and I let him know something was wrong with the sound on one of the DVD’s of the unedited version, so far he hasn’t responded. I’m very frustrated! Anyways, there are other problems, but there is nothing we can do about it now…….

Passport Update

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve written a post on here, so I just wanted to let everyone know that I got my new passport in the mail last week, AND I got my old one back, which I’m really happy about, because I didn’t want to lose my stamps from the countries I’ve already been to!!!

Preserving my dress!

Posted on Nov 19, 2008 under My Wedding Dress | Comments are off

I am getting my wedding dress, my wedding shoes and my veil preserved. We have decided to go with the museum method. I can’t wait. My parents came over on Sunday and my dad helped us get my dress in this tiny box they sent and then on Monday I had to bring the box to a UPS store. I can’t wait to get it back, but it is going to take so many months, not even really sure how long! Museum method is what Darrell and me chose to do because neither one of us wanted me to have this beautiful dress that was worn only once and then stuffed into a box! With the museum method it is preserved just like clothing would be preserved for a museum display. It will be in a bag and comes with special gloves so that you can always open the bag, look at the dress, show others, and it will never ruin! It is so exciting!! Maybe once it does come back I can get a picture of it up on here!!!

3 Things!

Yesterday in the mail Darrell and I received our new tractor checkbook cover! It is so cute! Can’t wait to have the checks that will go in it!!!

I went to the DMV yesterday and I finally got my name and address changed on my license, so that was fun! Not really, it took forever! But what else would you expect at the DMV right?!

Then while I was there I was able to register to vote in Kendall County! Yay! Now I just have to pursuade Darrell to register to vote! Don’t know if that will happen though!
