Post Wedding Update

Oh my goodness! I can't believe how busy I've been since our honeymoon return. I was pretty busy before the nuptials - getting everything together for the ceremony - but now I jokingly wish I only had tasks like that on my 'to-do' list. Now, instead of preparing for one day, I'm preparing for the rest of my life with my husband.

I'm not complaining, though; in fact, I'm quite happy taking on all of these new responsibilities, it's just been a slight challenge fitting new tasks into my routine. First on this list is to start looking for a home. Fortunately, it's a buyer's market. More on that another time.

Another task at the top of the list has been to find a job. I have been in media sales since '96 - mostly local magazines. Due to the current economy, print advertising has REALLY taken a hit. One of the magazines I worked for recently ceased operations after 28 years. Another one I worked for is just barely surviving, but I had to part ways. One of my paychecks bounced and the others had been late. I understand that most of those said problems happened because advertisers were late paying their bills; however, I cannot cureently base my life on others' payment schedules or lack thereof.

I need a change. I may have found one. More on that later.

As for bellydancing, I had full intentions getting back into it after the wedding, but I broke my right pinky toe almost two weeks ago. OUCH!

Where did you buy gifts for your bridesmaids? Im thinking about spa certificates from Burk Williams, and good teeth bleach from Dentist.net...

Hi Lilly! Sorry, I have not been on in a long time.

Those are GREAT gift ideas. I only had two bridesmaids, my sister in-law and my cousin. I bought them pearl earrings to wear for the ceremony.

Anything that would help the girls save money and/or enjoy themselves in preparation for the big day is always a hit.

You've inspired me to do a post about this! Thanks so much, and I will expand on this topic soon!
