Random Tuesday and Coffee Chat

Join Stacy for some randomness!

Hello everyone!  My husband and I just celebrated our eleventh year of marriage (2nd for both of us).
 He said he searched my blog for an hour looking for ideas for what gift to buy me.  He said he realized that what I like most, based on my blog, is sleeping and my kids.  Hahahaha!  And he knows he is mentioned frequently as well.  He was actually searching for this post in which I listed things I would love to receive for a Valentine's Day.

But, here's the compliment:  He said he learned that I am not a materialistic person.  It's humbling when someone recognizes and admires that.  Thanks, honey!

In other news, my daughter took me, another daughter, and her friend to see our first wedding venue.  She loved it!  We reminded her, though, that you wouldn't try on only one dress.  We need to see a few more.  She also has homework:  make a guest list so we can get a clear count, and select a specific date that will work either during or after her upcoming internship.

The venue is called Butler's Courtyard.  I guess as venues go, it's affordable, but this wedding business is BIG business!  I would love to own a venue and create beautiful weddings for couples, but I would want to give them truly affordable options.  The wedding industry is a racket, at least at some places!  All kinds of extra fees for this, that, and the other.

And on a totally different topic, I want to buy this Spray Perfect nail color.  You spray it on, then wash away the extra from your fingers so it only stays on the nail.  I wonder if it works?

And now it's time for Coffee Chat with Rory Bore.

This week, our hostess says...
What adventures will you be having this summer?

Adventures?  What's that?  Just kidding!  Summer has already started for me. I spent my first day off doing, well, not much of anything, which is exactly what I need right now.  I've got to find living arrangements for my son when he moves away for college, and I'll help my daughter get moved in when she's ready to go.  And maybe look at some wedding venues and dresses.  I'm actually obsessed with wedding dresses.  Isn't this gorgeous!?

Of course, I have plenty of projects to keep me busy such as cleaning out closets, organizing my photos and scrapbooking room, and some spring cleaning that is running a little bit late this year.  I hope to get in a couple of days of scrabooking with my sister and a friend.  My husband and I are going to Las Vegas in a couple of weeks.

I've got some gift cards to spend at the salon, so I see a spa day in my future.  As usual, I have a long list of books I want to read, but I will probably only get to about a fourth of them.  My Goodreads list is long!  I need to keep up with my young adult literature for work, so this one is next on my list.

Summer will be over in a flash.  At least, it usually is.  What are your plans?


  1. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! I love that your hubby scours your blog to figure out what to get you. He's a keeper! :)

    The wedding business really is a big 'racket' business, isn't it? It would be fun, though, to own a venue - and make options affordable for people to have their fairy tale wedding on a budget. :)

    Ooooh! I hadn't heard of the Spray Perfect nail color - I'm definitely going to check it out, sounds like something I need since I'm such a dork when trying to apply nail color! :)

    Countdown to Summer Break; Cool Monsters, and talking Summer Bucket List with Coffee: RTT Rebel

  2. A very Happy Anniversary!!! Is that Vegas trip part of the anniversary plans? I've always wanted to see what it's like -- but I would be horrible at gambling. I'd like to see some live shows.

    Ugh - the wedding prices are just awful in some locations. In debt, is no way to start your marriage off! I am glad we had a nice wedding, but we also took a year to save for it and anything we couldn't afford was crossed off the list.

    I need that spray on nail polish!!! I bet it does work because the top coat is probably what prevents the polish from washing off.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
