Crazy time of year

So it's been crazy busy the last month or so. I can't believe how close to Christmas we are, it's right around the corner. Last year was a completely different feeling. I was at home with my baby planning things for Christmas, this year I haven't had a second to think about it.

I started with Kiddie Kandids the week of Halloween and have basically lived there ever since. I love it there though. I won't lie, I can't wait for it to slow down after Christmas, but I'll enjoy the major overtime while it lasts. I probably won't get this much again for a while. Also, I lucked out and the company that is doing Brittney's decorations for her reception and wedding have put me on their page as a partner, that was pretty exciting for me. Go here to check it out.

Along with Kiddie Kandids, I've been doing my family's pictures, Brittney's engagements and bridals. I also have been trying to get Brittney's bridal shower together and have no idea how it is going to work out since I work every day this week and until 6 on Friday. The Bridal shower is at 7 so....hopefully I make it on time, considering it's at my house. If not, my mom will be there to set up and get everything ready for me. Now I just need to figure out what we will DO at the bridal shower.

Also, as stated in the previous post, I'm starting a wedding company. It was going to be me and my friend Amanda, but we figured out we want different things. She wants it as a hobby and I actually want a full on business. So we parted ways and decided to just stick as friends and not business partners. Instead I have my friend Niccole, who does cakes. Her cousin might be helping us with floral or we will be referring them to Amanda still. That is set to launch January 1st. We are very excited and the first wedding we do will be EXTREMELY cheap. So if you know of anyone looking for wedding planners (that need photography, cakes, floral and decorations) send them my way. :) I will post soon what the discount will be. We have been discussing doing the first wedding for just the cost of materials, and the photography fee. I'll let you know...

Jarren has slowly started adding new words and forming small sentences. He completely says "uh-oh" while forming his lips into a perfect "o" shape while saying oh. It's very cute. He also is big on saying "Bayyyybeee" or dropping his jaw and saying "ha" for hot. He's done very well with us having a fireplace and has only gone near touching it twice then says "HA!" knowing it's hot. My mom claims he has said "gramma" which I still haven't heard but I'll believe her. (love you mom) and Jake said Jarren walked over to him while he was watching tv today and put his hand on his shoulder and said "hi dadda" then plopped down on his lap.

Anyway, I will be done with updates for now. I just wanted to let you know I'm not dead, I'm still here. We are doing well and can't wait for Christmas. I'm counting down the days til summer when there is no more snow.

If I don't update before Christmas, we love you all and hope you have a very Merry Christmas.

Wedding Business

My friend Amanda and I are starting up a wedding business. I will do photography, she will do flowers and possibly cakes...if we learn how to do them. We need to find someone who can do catering. If anyone out there knows who to cook really good and fairly fast, let me know. We may just want to hire you :)

And if anyone out there knows how to do wedding cakes let me know also. That may take some stress off our hands during weddings, to not have Amanda doing both.
