2012 has been WONDERFUL so FAR!
I opened this fortune cookie, the last one at the bottom of the cookie jar...
and we felt it was a great summation of whats to come!
As you all know, this is the year of the WEDDING.
Our Youngest and her hubby to be are getting married on our homestead!!!
In order to get in the mood I must first play the music that I received this Christmas from Mr. Foresterman.
Yes, because of time constraints, we had to shop for each other's Christmas gifts in a Ranch store.
yes, he really did pick out "Gunfighter's ballads" but I guess that was better then the "Tombstone days" one.
This man knows me well.
So anyway, we had to put off taking down Christmas too;
not just because Tomez the cat wont let me put away any of the Christmas decor yet
by sleeping in every storage box...
and then the cat hair needs to be vacuumed out before I can put anything in it.
This cat has game, I tell ya....
But because right now, we are in ~
THE BEGINNING OF THE WEDDING DECORATION DECISION SEASON!
Our Bride has this wonderful idea of a Rustic Elegant wedding~
Gold, Greenery, Chocolate Brown
with the ambiance
"Lord of the Rings"
WARNING- For you ungeeks, read up on your LOTR before preceding....
we'll wait. wikipedia will get you there.
At first I thought she meant a Bilbo Baggins Birthday Bash -
giddily thinking of fireworks, short furry footed happy people and merriment and dragons,
but quickly she corrected me ~
(uhmm, very quickly I might add)
Ahhhh! And then I remembered....
Gold, Greenery, Woods Elegance...
we can do that!
and cant forget the antlers...
but the petals in the pictures - pay no attention to the petals, they have been returned...
although I liked them big time. But bride "Arwen" axed the idea (hmph!) after my numerous failing attempts and awkward interjections into our phone conversations at abrupt times ~
me - "So how is the new school year going?" while absent mindly playing with a petal...
"Arwen" - "yes, i love this new class im taking, its based on a specific case study..."
me - "but are you sure you dont like the watercolor affect of the green petals?"
"Arwen" - "no. As I was saying, this case study..."
me - "but they are hydrangea petals, you like hydrangeas"
"Arwen" - uhmm. no. not those. As I was REPEATING, this case study..."
So I gave that up.
I could have pulled weight like Galadriel did when in presence of the ring, but i held back. Just like Galadriel did after her fit with rolling clouds and stuff ...Okay, I threw a fit in the living room with no one around but a cat in a box, but I got over it...like Galadriel...we be queens that way...
Dont want to be a nasty MOB
(MOB - mother of the bride, not a group of thugs from Chicago...wait, im from Illinois...okay, not like the nasties in a tarentino movie either...I think )
Plus Mr. Foresterman said any petals most likely will be blown into the state of Wyoming.
and if they are left in the hayfield, they wont be tasty in the haybales either.
he has a good point.
Anyway, we did order tents.
Two White Cathedral Tents,
with round tables
an Oak parquet dance floor...
*beautiful thoughts sigh*
Back to scheming.
With twinkling lights, flowers and feathers...
Sparkling White wine...
Steaks, a Roasted Pig,
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
lots of Chocolate..
*Beautiful thoughts sigh*
then i snap to and remember that
my reality today
looks like this ~
And we got to vacuum some boxes too!
If you are so inclined,
we are on Pinterest
and you can see more of what we are "scheming" on!
*Beautiful thoughts sigh*
