Time For An Update

November 10th, 2010 at 12:46 pm

It has been a couple of weeks since I blogged so I have some updating to do.

DD Wedding:
Yes! She got married Oct. 23. It was great! They went to the courthouse and a very nice female Hispanic judge did their ceremony. She did a greas job by the way. It was just my DD and her DH and their six-month-old baby; me and my DH and our six-year-old DGS.
We all dressed up. The pictures turned out great. Then we all went to a nice steakhouse for dinner. We picked up the tab.
Then on Saturday evening they had their wedding reception in a friend's backyard. It was very simple with only a few family and relatives. I think we had 40 people there.
My DH and I ended up spending about $2000 for the whole thing. His brother and his family came a long distance and we took them out to eat and paid for their hotel rooms.
My DD and her DH really loved it and they were VERY appreciative, so it made it all worthwhile.

I have found another $.55 in change since I last blogged. Including 4 dimes, a nickel, and the rest in pennies. I love dimes.
Old total: $2.09
New total: $2.64

    That sounds lovely! One thing I appreciated about my small, less formal wedding was that the vows were front and center, so the significance and impact of the commitment I was making really hit home. Very exciting and overwhelming and yes, very very romantic!

    Sounds like a wonderful celebration!

    Congratulations on what sounds like a wonderful experience for your family! It is great to be able to celebrate important life moments, and they lead to the memories that make life worthwhile. My wife and I did a rather frugal wedding reception, ourselves, but with the help of friends and family we had some insurance of a lovely afternoon that we will always remember. Congratulations again...
