Wedding Wednesday!!

So, If you haven't listened to the podcast yet and were wondering what I was talking about last week about my wedding. There is a new NCAA bowl game in St. Pete at Tropicana Field. The story is here. So, the date of this Bowl game is Dec 2oth. The date of my wedding is Dec 20th. Our reception is at a bar across the street from Tropicana field. You get the problem. At first I thought that we were going to have to move the day or the reception, which I didn't want to do. I finally heard from the owner and he said he would work with us and put us upstairs away from the crowd and we'd still be able to have our reception there. He just said that we would have to take care of parking. We are having an early wedding and we should be getting to the bar before the crowd starts but I've been thinking about hiring some college or high school kids to shuttle people from their hotels to the reception site so they don't have to worry about parking and driving. We'll see how that goes. So, all is well in wedding planning.

I've started narrowing down the bridesmaid dresses. I just need to go "look" at them and make sure most will be happy. I think that I've found them though.

I have a florist that I need to go talk to. My friend used them for their wedding so I think I'm going to go with them but I just need to make sure they can work with us and what we need to do. There will not be a lot of flowers at the reception site because ummm it's a bar. :) I still need to get the bouquets and the boutonnières figured out. I think most our decorations at the bar will be either baseballs or candles. We haven't finalized our center pieces yet. I keep saying "we have time." but eventual the we have time will run out. :)

Well...a quick Thankful Tuesday on Wednesday. I'm having a rough day with a student in my class and I'm VERY thankful that I will not have to have him in my class ever again. I'm not sure what is wrong with today's young but I was NEVER this disrespectful to my peers or teachers. I have mixed emotions of that I won't be influencing our young anymore and that is a good thing and a bad thing. I'm glad because I'm SICK of kids who don't know how to be respectful and I'm sad because I will miss those who are great. Like my knitting group. I've already talked about trying to get together with them.

My life is going to be changing in less than a week and I'm excited and nervous about that. I'm not really sure what to think about it.

Well...hope everyone is doing well.

Happy Knitting!!!


  1. I'm always surprised with how badly behaved some kids are... and the parents could care less. It's too bad that one of your last days is being coloured by someone disrespectful.

  2. My sister is a teacher and she has been feeling the same way lately. It's sad.

    Oh and having high school kids running a shuttle is a BRILLIANT idea. No worrying about DWI's or parking. You are a genius.
