Kellie and Derek have such a huge family and so many friends their wedding was going to be huge even if they only invited those closest to them. For that reason they began giving out tasks for each of us to do in order to help them in their plans. We were given wedding favors as our job. We had to choose them and package them ourselves. This wedding was truly going to be a family affair. We shopped at all of our local locations but could not find what we needed in the large numbers we would need. Then we shopped online and found a huge array of items and some ideas we had not thought of for favors. We were really excited when we found the perfect favors to give as well as the packaging for them. After all it is not just the favor that makes it impressive it is mostly about the presentation.
Our boss had been single for a long time. He had totally thrown himself into his practice after his wife had died. He had no intention to ever marry again even though he was relatively young. Then one day his one o’clock appt. came in. She was a beautiful lady with a lot of class to her. She is one of those ladies you would think of when you think of the southern bells. They had a great conversation after her checkup and decided to meet and discuss business. After that meeting they had been a couple ever since. Their wedding was in all of the gossip columns in our small town. Everyone was invited that was on the who’s who list in our area. We were invited because we are his staff. It was beautiful. For the wedding favors Dr. Jenkins passed out toothbrushes and paste. He just can not help himself from being a professional all of the time. I think that is why they are such a perfect match. I think of their wedding every time I use my toothbrush. After this brush is gone I will probably continue to think of them even with a new brush.
How could he have done that to me? How many times does he think he can be
deceitful and I would not find out? I am a firm believer that you should
never lie. The truth always prevails and trust is a very hard thing to
gain back when destroyed. My boyfriend, who may become ex-boyfriend in the
near future, continually neglects to give me the whole truth. I am careful
not to rant and rave when he does stupid things that he knows would hurt
me. Why can’t he see that telling me the truth is a lot less painful than
lying and I later stumble onto the truth? Recently I found several
personalized napkins waded in his trash bag in the car while we were out.
The incriminating evidence was the initials belonged to his ex-girlfriend
who recently had a birthday party at one of the local bars. Just like I
always said, you can’t run from the truth.
My grandmother sometimes has no filter when it comes to blurting out whatever she is thinking. You never know what she will spill out. It could be a family secret that is totally humiliating, or even a harsh curse word that definitely is out of place in the surroundings. I think she should be in an assisted living home, but mom and dad have taken on the loving task of taking her under their wings for the duration of her existence. Don’t get me wrong, I love her dearly but I just don’t let my friends come over or get around her. Who knows what she would tell them about me? We recently went to a wedding for one of our family members. She behaved throughout the ceremony and reasonably well during the reception. The guests were beginning to head outdoors to see the bride and groom depart and grandmother stopped by the table and took her parting gift. She stood there and unwrapped the trinket, exclaiming out loud “What kind of **!!!!** wedding favors are these?” That is one of those priceless moments where I wish I was adopted.
What is a costume wedding? That is what her wedding invitations said when she sent them out. It was scheduled on Halloween weekend but where is the sanctity of marriage with a costume wedding? What are we supposed to dress up as; ghouls, mummies, vampires or werewolves? This should be interesting. I think for her wedding present I will give them a Halloween bucket filled with chocolates, candy corns and those tasty little peanut butter treats wrapped with orange and black paper. Seriously, if they aren’t taking this ceremony to heart, why should I? Maybe I am totally incorrect. I guess my disgust and disappointment is getting the best of me. I want to ask exactly what she meant by “costume” but tact has never been an asset of mine. I am afraid if she responds to my question as I have assumed the answer to be it will show on my face and she will be upset with me. Well, I will say that hopefully the couple will dress up in the costume of “bride and groom.”
“We need to find more clients. I just sent the advertising folders to Direct Mail services as one venue to get our name out. Two of our current clients are planning on ending our partnership within the month. If we don’t find new clients soon, we’ll be out of business,” the boss said. “We need ideas, people.” The lead marketing manager stood up. “I believe that I may have a new client, sir. I’ve been working on them for the past month and I’m just in the process of getting them to meet with our sales staff,” he said. “That’s good to hear,” the boss said. “If that goes through, then we’ll need one more client to break even. Does anyone else have any leads?” No one else in the room spoke. The boss shook his head in disappointment. This was going to be a hard year for them.
The white beaches to the east of my home town are the perfect place to
gather sand for the sand ceremony products. It is very fine and of good
I like to spend time at the beach. It is one of the few in the world that
is as fine as in any tropical destination. Unlike these tropical
paradises, this beach is not very well known. I can go there frequently
with nobody else around. I can lie down on the sand and just relax. There
is no human made noise. There is only the sound of the ocean waves
crashing against the shore.
It gives me a great piece of mind to be here with nature. It’s a great
spot to sit and think. Once I am done, I collect some of the sand for my
Marcus led his men in unloading the truck of wedding decorations. There
were big boxes and they were really heavy. The men used trolleys and pure
muscle to move the boxes from the truck into their warehouse. The truck
driver had offered to help. He worked tirelessly with Marcus’s crew.
After twenty minutes the work was finally done. The last box was inside
the warehouse and was ready to be sorted and shelved.
The truck driver shook hands with Marcus and climbed back into his truck.
He started the engine and began to drive away. Marcus watched him go until
there was nothing left to see. Marcus turned back to the boxes.
“Alright, these boxes aren’t going to sort themselves,” he said. “Let’s
get to it shall we?”
I have a huge garden. I love to spend my summer evenings tinkering around in my garden. I often am reading books about how I can make it better. I used to grow only flowers and other ornamentals but lately I’ve really gotten interested in growing spices. I’ve started drying them and giving them as gifts for Christmas or for birthdays. The other day I thought maybe I could start a business selling my spices. I could make rubs, chutneys and sauces and start my own little company online. I bet lots of people would love these as gifts or even to give as wedding favors. I think I’ll look into it later this week and see if it will be worthwhile. Wouldn’t it be nice to quit your day job and spend your time playing in the garden?
I’m not very good at giving gifts to people. Sometimes I have a stroke of brilliance and can think of the perfect thing to give someone but for the most part I just don’t give anything. I’d personally rather get nothing than get something empty and meaningless so I assume most people think that way, too. However, a friend of mine just had a baby and I thought of the perfect present to get her: personalized napkins! I went to pick out some really cute ones and get the name of her baby written on them but then I realized that while we knew the name, we didn’t know the sex. She was going to name her baby Avery no matter what but I didn’t know whether to get pink ones or blue ones. They didn’t have yellow napkins. Can you get green for a girl? I panicked and ended up getting both colors because it was going to take them a few days to print them and I wanted to be ready for when baby Avery arrived.
