Things That Go Around for $100 Alex

So we have picked out our rings :D I tried to convince Albert to go for the laser etched tungsten gold "One ring" from Lord of the Rings but he wouldn't go for it :(

What you guys may not know is that during all of this craziness we are also trying to figure out our next car. Ours is ready to drive peacefully into that quiet night. The whole process kinda makes me sick. Even if you have a car payment of $370 a month, for 5 years, you are paying like $14 per day to have that car, not including gas or insurance. And used cars aren't much better.

I want a car that will keep me and future kids safe with a hatched back. SUV, Crossover, Wagon or Hatchback - I don't really care. Albert refuses to drive the last two, and neither of us wants a Van, so that leaves us with the first two. These cars can be rather expensive, with used ones (5 year+) still selling for 15-20k. I'm not sure what we're going to do yet, but it's one more headache to add to the long line of things weighing on my mind.

On a positive note, Marcie checked out the venue and she really likes it! Next step is for me to see it too.

Time Flies..

When you've got too much on your plate!

Wow is it just zipping by! I'm struggling with an ever-growing guest list and a husband who is wanting to have input on everything. Which is great, but when you have to make decisions on the fly, becomes a bit hampering... I love you baby, but maybe this is a situation where less is more?

So my friend Marcie checked out our venue for us, and it's great! But it doesn't have chairs/tables in the rental cost, which is a bit of a bummer. We're also trying to figure out if its possible to broadcast the reception for people who aren't able to make it.

I'm torn about what I should do for the wedding cake/cupcakes. I do this for other people but I wonder if I should try to do it for myself. I can imagine that it would be quite a headache. I'm contemplating making the cupcakes ahead of time and freezing them and icing them the day before the wedding.

So many things to think about!!
