I hope you have all had the opportunity to hear the Bill Cosby monologue about a father giving the kids cake for breakfast.
Schmidt’s Bakery & Delicatessen is the place we have decided we are going to get the cake from. Trust me, it is wonderful. And, more surprisingly, less expensive than Kings or Sunflower- two other places we looked.
The candles are smelling up my apartment wonderfully, and the other goodies should be here soon. That should about do it for table favors. We figured out what we want the center pieces to look like, and we figured out what flowers we like, and which ones we donâ€™t. Now all we need to do is order them from Sue at Bouquet Boutique.
I have my hair and veil trial appointment set up with Pam at Sage Creek, and a gal named April is going to do the last little fittings for my dress.
Piece by pieceâ€¦
Oh, to make paragraphs here, use the “less than” and “greater than” with the letters “br” in between the bracketed signs to make a paragraph break with no spaces.

We started registering for gifts (when we are finished, I will tell you where, that way, there will be no doubles or mistakes) even though we value people over objects, but there are those that insist on getting something.
We also found the candlesticks for the unity candle. Now for the actual wax candles… Michaels!
I am still excited that we managed to find bridesmaids dresses that look so good with my dress (no, Doug hasn’t seen my dress) and the bridesmaid dresses were on sale at about $87 plus shipping and handling. Yea!
I hope these questions start a bit of a discussionâ€¦
