What to do, what to do . . .

. . . and I'm asking YOU to tell ME what to do!

I've just about had it with making decisions.  I don't seem to be able to cope anymore.

What I'm asking you for is not earth-shattering.  Not life-altering.  But it is something that is confusing the heck out of me and I cannot think of a good solution.  

I am unclear, unsure and perplexed and time is ticking away . . .

. . . what the heck should I serve at the gift opening gathering the day after the wedding???

Keep in mind that I will be gone from the house 2 days before we return to open the loot.  The motel offers a breakfast, my main man and I will rush home (40 miles away) and I'm telling people not to come until 1:00 so a light supper after the goodies are oohed and aahed over is what I am thinking.  If I order something to pick up on the way home, what would I order?  Think 'simple, but elegant' like the wedding itself.

Oh, and what can we munch on while getting ready on the wedding day?  I don't want anyone skipping out to grab a burger and returning late or fainting from hunger during the ceremony!  It has to be simple, non-messy and easy to clean up after.

As much as I like to eat, you would think the food would be the easy part.  But nooooo.

Help me please!  Or better yet, just come and do it for me.  tee!hee!

Maybe this will be a surprise contest!  The best (and most 'simple, but elegant') suggestion wins!

Single wide trailer style . . .

. . . the Robelyn way.

Celebrating a fancy, schmancy *birth*day of some kind like only she can do.

She is spilling the secrets of her success.

All week long.

But you don't have to sign up or anything because I am determined to win this perfect hobo bag.  I just hope that a roll of duct tape is included!    

Hope your weekend is grand!

Sweet ladies . . .

. . . who send wonderful gifts!

Sweet Becky from Junk to Joy.

She sent me pieces to make something myself but she put them together too pretty to take apart.  So I'm loving them just the way they are.

Jennifer Rizzo, with the creations of Beth Quinn, made me feel special.  I know you can't see them well but the matching necklaces say 'sweet mama' and 'sweet girl'.  My little girl and I will be wearing them to her wedding rehearsal.  Tears will be falling.

Cindy from Fat Cow Studio sent a gift almost too pretty to unwrap.  

But unwrap it I did and . . .

. . . discovered beauty and a reminder to spread my wings and venture into dreams that may be too big, but oh so worthwhile.

Thank you sweet ladies.

This is the last post . . .

. . . of the wedding sneak peeks.  I promise!!  

Normal life begins soon. 

Linking to Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday.  

Crackerjack is the texture.  

Now why do I suddenly have a hankering for candy coated popcorn?  Crackerjack . . . like in the red and blue box . . . with the prize inside . . . get it?


Okay.  Bye.
