I have been wedding planning like a maniac and because of this I have neglected this blog terribly! I wanted to blog about my wedding planning especially for Vernon and his family to see but I just haven't had it in me to sit down and type.
This is a blog post I had started about a shopping trip with my mom. It was a fun day.
[March 2013] During my wedding planning adventures I had a list of things I wanted to get so I thought I'd go into Escanaba and do some shopping. I had a coupon for JoAnn Fabrics and I still needed to get a handful of items for the wedding so I thought mom and I could make a day of it. Sadly, JoAnn didn't have everything that I was looking for, but I did manage to pick up the floating candles needed for my centerpieces. I did see a cake service set on sale and this was not something I really wanted to buy. It was simple and inexpensive so I went ahead and grabbed it then my mother immediately pipes up... "No! Don't get that! It's ugly!" I just looked at her, "What?" She said it again, "Don't get that, it's ugly!" She was so animated and determined that I didn't buy the cake service set. It didn't take long for me to figure it out... she's buying us a cake service set. Ha ha ha.Normally I would have blown her off and got it anyway, but I didn't want to spoil her fun so I put it back.
Next stop was GFS. This is a pretty cool store. My dad is like a kid in a candy shop in this store. They are a supplier to restaurants and businesses but they are also open to the public. Mom and I just wanted to see what they had as far as party supplies and food. I don't think we picked anything up here.
Of course I can't go into a town without stopping at St Vinnies and Goodwill as I am still looking for teapots and teacups. I also found a "collector" type shop in downtown Escanaba and totally scored on teacups and a teapot!
To complete a rather nice day out with my mom we stopped at Hereford and Hops for lunch. It was great! There mom confessed to buying me a, you guessed it, Cake Service Set! She wants to give it to me for my birthday. She wanted it to be a surprise but I told her if it is wedding related she needs to tell me otherwise I'm getting it myself.
This was a fun day. Shopping for the wedding and spending time with my mom. It was perfect.
