I’m thankful.

I have so much to be thankful for. And with Thanksgiving just passing I didn’t want this opportune time to pass to say “thanks, God”.

My God. His love, grace, mercy and forgiveness.

My husband. His unconditional love for me, his love for our kids and the way he makes me laugh.

My son. His smile, his heart for others, his passion, sense of humor.

My Kaia. Her silly, snuggly self.

My Theia. Her concern for everything, her love for me.

My parents. Their love and commitment to me and my family.

My in-laws. Their support in everything we do.

My job with college students that also allows me to be home with our kids. To reach others for Jesus.

My running shoes. My lattes in the morning made by my husband.

My kitchen aid mixer. I love the green:)

Our home. Our neighbors who love and help us like family. Friends who make me smile.

Mason’s inquisitive mind. He loves to learn.

Mexican food. Vanilla ice cream. Cheese. Pizza. My laptop. A husband that answers all my techy questions.

Two little girls who are constantly making me smile.

The way God created me to be fun-loving, loyal, a little quirky, young at heart, athletic and creative.

There’s so much more but for now…

BIG and small, I’m thankful for a lot.

  1. That is very tough especially with the buedgt you have. First determine how many people will be attending. find a venue for reception and ceremony .call around multiple places and give them a date and find out if they have packages and then get back to them with an answer. .Find out if the venue allows outside companies to cater in the venue . Decide if you want the venue to cater, hire an outside caterer, or cook yourself ( if venue allows ) .Find out if the venue has wedding packages and what they include . See if the provide linens/chair covers. If not go to local event stores or search onlineCake .Go to local cake bakeries for a taste testing if you dont already know what flavor you want or your local grocery store for simple cakeFlowers .Call local florists for prices ( see if they have any packages) sometimes the venue will have packages including all of the above. . It might be cheaper to buy your flowers and do it yourself. ( find prices for that )Invitations . Local paper stores such as hallmark should have premade invitations and do it yourself kits. If not, look online for do it yourself kitsMusic . Look for wedding DJ’s or wedding band. Or to keep it cheap a nice sound system and music of choiceDecorations . Cheaper to do it yourself. Check local arts and craft stores or discount stores like Christmas Tree Shop/Marshalls etc .Transportation . Either their own transportation such as their own car or borrowing a vehicle ( to keep your buedgt very low ). . Or call around for limo/car prices, mention the time and hours it will be neededGuest lists and brides dress and groom tux. Inform bridesmaids and groomsmen of getting their tuxes and dresses.That is about it. To save money, call more various places not just 1 or 2. get prices from all places and write it down. Obviously go with the cheapest prices available unless your not wanting to settle. The more you can do it yourself the more you will save. and dont forget a photographer/videographer call around for various prices and if not get a camera and have a friend do it.I hope this helps
