Potato Salad

Tennessee Granddaddy had this on his blog this morning. Worth watching all the way thru!

It rained all day yesterday. We went to Travis's graduation. It was long but nice. They had 350 graduates from the different classes. Our Vo-tec offers a wide variety of training programs from Cosmetology to Horse Care! Travis took two years of Criminal Justice. Not sure what good it is going to do but it might look good on a resume!

I'm so proud! My son is graduating from Boces Vo-tec tonight. He took 2 years of Criminal Justice. He didn't pass his security guard test, but he did pass the course. He will have his high school graduation next week! He is at the high school right now taking his final in Biology. I ordered his cake yesterday. Marble with chocolate frosting. I'm sure he will get lots of $$$ for gifts so he can buy the guitar he wants. I suggested he start with a acoustic but if he has enough he could buy an electric with an amp. Him and my step-son are going to DJ his party! LOL heavy metal all day! We are having cook out food, picnic type food too. Chicken, dogs, hamburger, potato salad, baked beans, chips, soda, cake!
Rich's new job is going great. Only problem is he won't get paid until next week and probably only for 2 days. We need the money NOW! I get paid Wednesday but most of the money is going to have to go to bills. I hate having money issues, it is such a big source of stress for me. I'm sure there are people who know how I feel.
The wedding is 7 weeks away! Its getting close to the wire! Linda

Different wedding dress

I got my dress from Fashion Bug yesterday. Here is me in it. I think this one is much nicer. Just needs a minor alteration here and there and maybe hemmed up.

School is out

School is out.. for Travis anyway. He only has one test and that is this Thursday. He has his Boces graduation this Thursday evening. I never got the chance to mail out the invites so I guess it will be phone calls. I can hand out the invites later on for souveniers. Can't believe I wasted my money like that! I guess I can still get them out today and they will make it by Thursday.

Wedding plans moving ahead

Yesterday was a busy day in wedding world. We visited with the florist and the cake decorator. The flower theme we are going with is casual, summery and seasonal. Black eyed susans, sunflower, daisys etc.. Here is a picture of the cake we are getting except in different colors.. and also a cake topper, no writing.
It should be really nice. We are getting a double layer with chocolate cake and raspberry filling. White frosting and orange, yellow, white type flowers. I have a dress but it needs to be altered slightly under the bosom area. Here is a picture of me in it.

The reason I am not smiling is because I was just posing to potentially sell this dress on E-bay. I still haven't completely decided if I want to wear it or not. I am being encouraged to do so by a few people. They said it looks great, just needs a slight alteration. I am not going to wear the veil in the picture either probably. Too much. Too big! I look like a midget in this dress!

I have been sick since Midnight of Wed with a stomach bug. Vomiting and diarrhea. Haven't been able to eat a thing since Wednesday. I'll probably end up gaining weight. That is the kind of luck I have. I hate being sick like this. It is the worst. The weakness and pain from laying in bed too much is bad too.
I did buy a dress, but I'm not sure if I'm going to wear it or not. It is old from the 80's and a bit too big. The train is enormous. I can't figure out how to work the darn thing. I think I might sell it on e-bay. Not much else as far as wedding plans and progression. I had to cancel two appts again with the cake and flowers because of being sick.
