We have to protect ourselves. we sometimes find ourselves in situations that we would not have chosen for ourselves such as walking to our cars late at night. We know it is wiser to be in numbers and yet at times we find ourselves alone. When that happens it is important to have a defense plan. Pay attention to what is around you and know how you can escape if needed. Have your pepper spray out and in your hand. It does no good tucked away in a purchase or briefcase. Sometimes we find ourselves somewhat exposed to the environment but being prepared is the perfect defense.
Up until recently, every wedding I have attended gave out wedding
favors meant for individual people. But just the other week I went to
a wedding with my girlfriend which was different. It was fairly normal
as far as most weddings go, not to say it wasn’t a lovely ceremony.
However, the favors were something else. They were made specifically
for couples instead of individuals. There were his and her towels,
sets of pots and pans, coupons for spas and hotels, it was amazing. My
girlfriend and I received one of the sets of towels and we were very
happy with our gift. The towels were Egyptian cotton with a thousand
thread count or something like that. My girlfriend told me they’re
just like the ones all the rich people have in the movies. I was
surprised at the favors. It was very pleasant to see a couple who were
thinking about all the other couples who were attending their wedding.
The bride and groom also covered all the bases and had a supply of
gifts for single people who did not attend with a date.
There are so many benefits from living in the world of technology. One of the benefits many companies find is the ability to use industrial supplies so much easier than in years past. It is important that companies who need to know the backgrounds of those they hire have access to that information. Many loan agencies also use background check services before they will approve a loan. There are many instances where this services if vital to approvals from employment to business dealings which is why it is such a great benefit that it can be done online. It makes it faster and so much easier.
Dwayne had been asked to help out a friend. Dave and his girlfriend were finally getting married. She wasn’t taking any chances of him backing out so she was speeding along the preparations. She had the hall booked for a month from now and they were doing things themselves as it was too expensive to order everything on short notice. Dwayne had been asked to find small bottles and corks to match so that he could bottle the wine. The wedding favors could be the corks that were decorated for each bottle. His wife had also been asked to contribute. She had found the perfect labels and was working on the computer to print labels for the bottles.
She had found a picture of an expensive wine and had adjusted it so that it would fit the label. She was working on getting the names and date set within the labels. Everyone they knew was pitching in to make the wedding as traditional as possible. Invitations had been sent off the day the hall had been booked, hand delivered when possible and couriered where the people lived farther away. All who had been invited had responded and were coming. True friends were showing their true colors to pull things together.
It was a joke. My girlfriends and I were in a lingerie shop, looking at the sale items, when I happened to spot the wedding garters in the back. For a laugh, I slipped one on, and my friend snapped a picture. Little did I know that picture would end up on Facebook. And I had no idea that my parents even knew how to operate a computer, let alone navigate their way around my Facebook page. My cell phone started ringing before we even left the shop. My mother was freaking out; she seriously believed that I had gotten engaged and hadn’t told her about it! Bobby and I have only been dating for three weeks! What’s more, we’re only seventeen. I secretly think she was worried I got pregnant, and that Bobby did the honorable thing and asked me to marry him.
Once I was able to calm my mother down (I thought I heard the sound of a cork being popped on her end), we headed to the ice cream shop for a celebratory cone. I couldn’t even be mad at Brittany for putting the picture up on the internet.
Out of respect to our two little boys, Jason and I have agreed to use a pair of their G.I. Joe figurines as the wedding cake toppers. Zeke even put a little pink tutu on one of the toys, to represent me (not that I’ve ever worn a pink tutu). Personally, I think our guests are going to get a kick out of it. And really, the only reason we’re doing this ceremony is because of the kids.
Oscar and I have been together for eleven years now. We never planned on getting married; neither of us really cared one way or the other. But when I heard that the boys were getting teased at school (a certain “b” word had been tossed around), I decided it was high time we did something. I’m amazed at how cruel and heartless kids can be to one another. You’d think in this day and age, people would teach their children to be a little more open minded. I know I do my best to drill this lesson into my own children’s heads: treat others how you want to be treated.
Our candle went out. I’m not sure if that’s a bad sign, or if it’s just dumb luck. The minister hastily moved to relight our tapers, but as far as I was concerned, our unity candle ceremony was ruined. The day was a disaster (okay, I may be a tad melodramatic sometimes). I did find a bone in my fish though. I knew that couldn’t be a good thing. Nobody else found a bone. Brad pointed out that at least I didn’t choke on it; oddly enough that made me feel better. It’s a good thing my new husband gets me.
I may be slightly neurotic, but it’s in a good way. Not the “good lord, won’t you stop complaining about your problems” kind of way, but more of a: “I’m slightly over-reacting about nothing, but I can still laugh it off” kind. At least that’s what I like to tell myself. For all I know, my friends are having secret meetings behind my back to complain about ME! I’m not sure about anything in my life anymore…oh look, the cake’s being wheeled out! All is right with the world.
I was at a wedding once with less than one hundred people in
attendance. I knew both the bride and groom and I knew almost everyone
there personally, it was so small. It was lots of fun though!
Everywhere I walked I could talk with someone. I never got stuck at a
table where I sat quietly and watched the proceedings. I was able to
interact with all of the guests around me. The bride and groom were
able to afford unique wedding favors for all the guests, too. I got a
very nice set of juggling pins which I have wanted to get for a long
time now. They were much lighter than the ones I was using for
practice at the time, which were made of wood. The wedding was so
small there was an open bar. A couple of hours after dinner
had been served everyone was out on the dance floor really burning it
up. The music selection was perfect also. A nice mixture of some really
choice songs. The whole thing makes me hope my wedding will be as
Veronica was getting very excited as her wedding date approached. There were only two weeks left before the special day and she was spending this day getting some of the final details completed. She needed to find gifts for all her attendants and was looking for ideas for her fiancé to give to his groomsmen. She thought her bridesmaids might like jewelry to wear with their dresses, and flower girl baskets with a bracelet would be good for the flower girls.
She had already picked up the top for the cake and dropped it off with the caterers. The menu had been confirmed, taking into account any food allergies or sensitivities of the guests. The wedding favors were to be picked up tomorrow. The final dress fitting was scheduled for two days before the wedding with pick up the morning of. Her bridesmaids had already picked up their dresses and the groomsmen had their suits. Her flowers had been chosen and would be picked up the day of the wedding.
All that was left for her to worry about was picking up decorations and taking them to the church and the reception hall. The Thursday before the wedding the bridal party would make sure everything was festooned to her liking. Everything would be perfect!
