The Happy Couple-Jason and Jamie
Oh, don't they look like there in love!! Congratulations Jason and Jamie!! I can not wait.
This is Jason Lausterer and his bride to be, June 20th, Jamie Sneed.
We were busy last night doing invitations and even Mom was here to help. I had Tuna Casserole that Jason use to love when he was a boy...but also made Chili and Rice that he loves more...lol So he had both to choose from. lol Jamie wants the recipe and she will be able to cook these dishes for him..
Jamie asked me if I would make her veil and I said yes..very excited about it too..
The awning guy came by last Wednesday. Boy I tell you what. He said the long thing at the end that it drains from that is damage is cause by the leaves..I told him, you mean to say at any given time I can not have leaves in the drainage area..Than he tried to say this and that. Yes, he is dealing with a woman and not a man..now this guy told me in December, he was gong to put up an awning that would last 30 years..well it did not last a month!! Than he took measurements between the first post and the middle post, he was happy and than he measured from the middle post and he did not say a word..It is almost a foot short of being even. I have taken photos of the leaves and post measurements in case I need them in court. I told him 3 times what he is saying is "not acceptable" So he told me he would call his warehouse and see what they can do. I think I am getting round around here..So I just might have to get lawyer and sue them for this.
Another thing is you all should see my back yard and forest, or woods, that we had. It is so opened now. When they are done I will take more photos..they are now in the back of my home...They are going from side to side and than I guess they will do the middle..last.
Doing invitations for a wedding, well, I have a few hints for every one. Look up what the etiquette is before starting. Have all names and addresses way before even starting it. Figure out if you want to them yourself or have someone else do them. Mail them out 8 weeks before the wedding so that the quests you want to come does not make any plans, especially in the summer months when every one takes a vacation, with the gas prices their won't be many traveling by car..I like doing things like this, I really enjoyed typing all the names as I get them and putting them in the computer..while waiting for the maps to print. a minute and 15 for each one, I did my family birthdays, and anniversary's done. Got my email address in the email and all addresses updated. What I did not have, I called to find out or email them. I really did this for Mom...and glad I did. She knows all her great grandchildren and when I told her that she had ten, she could not believe and only had one date done..so now she has all of her families dates...I also emailed them out to every one so they would have both..so I have a busy little bee..lol I never thought I would lapse in putting info in my blog but sure have the last month..lol You all have a wonderful May 1st, in Hawaii they call it "May Day" and some parties and such going on.
