Tips Tuesday

Here’s my tip for today!


I am a nutcase for going anywhere near a shopping store, mall ect… these last few days. Talk about a madhouse. I am pretty sure I¬†almost got shot over a parking spot, I lost my pinkie toe in a shopping cart collision and lost the race for the next spot in line to a harassed looking older lady carting 2 crying toddlers and a sleeping¬†infant.¬†There was a moment where I¬†reached for the same size medium sweater as another women and I am positive I¬†saw her fangs come out… I let go of the shirt for fear of losing a few chunks of skin.

I should have started this months ago so I could avoid the absurdity known as Christmas shopping but I procrastinated as always and now I am paying the price ( in blood) for my horrific mistake.

So once again my tip for today…. shop for christmas early and avoid the stores in December.

Good luck and watch your limbs!


Christmas Weddings

The Pro’s and Con’s of a Christmas wedding.

Pro- Decorations are fairly cheap because things are already naturally decorated towards the Holidays.

Con- Your husband will forever mesh together your Christmas and Anniversary presents.

Pro- Picking a theme is easy!

Con- It’s a problem if you dislike Red/Green and Silver

Pro- Music selection is easy

Con-¬†People are not as understanding as you think about no presents because¬†you have to pay for a wedding! (ie.. your sister will be mad she didn’t get those earings but had to pay for a dress)

Pro- People are already in town for the holidays.

Con- A white Christmas does not make a happy bride (snow duh!)

Pro- cute muffs and shawls are adorable….

Con- Heavy winter boots and brown slush on your train are not.

Pro-¬†Halls usually have multiple events so you get freebies like valet and coat check no charge….

Con-¬†having the Company¬†Christmas party next to your¬†reception cha- cha slide thru your room. It’s not cute!

Pro-Unless you have a good sense of humor in which case it’s definitely memorable!

Con- straying from the holiday theme makes you look lame.

Pro- Ideas for favors are easy… ornaments, christmas cookies ect…

Con- no one wants more ornaments or Christmas cookies!!!

I get that I just spent half a page busting on the thought of a Christmas wedding but the truth is if I had my way my wedding would be 2 weeks from now and I would be fa-¬†la-¬†la -la¬†-laing my way down the aisle! My hubby and my parents vetoed me on a Christmas wedding because of most of the Con’s above but if you are considering one “who cares!” Its your day do it when you like!.

Have a holly jolly time planning
