Fun Time and the best TS purchase ever!

I was looking for something today and came across some of my wedding pics and thought that I would share a few of them. Scott and I were married in Vegas in 2002 at A Special Memory Wedding Chapel and it was wonderful.

We had planned on honeymooning in Vegas and said what the heck, let's just get married in there as well. So with that decision, I set out on a year of planning our wedding.

I had lived in Vegas for awhile with a roommate and he was still there and we had friends that wanted to go as well. At the time I was working for a local hotel and was able to get rooms for them for just $42 for the whole weekend. Scott and I stayed on the strip at the Excalibur and it was wonderful.

Scott had never been anywhere like Vegas before and it was so funny when we were landing he had been talking the whole flight that he was going to get the rental car and drive here, there and everywhere. Well once he saw the roads from the air he said I was doing all the driving since I knew my way around and that exactly what I did.

Ok, so Scott and I arrived on Friday to get all the details taken care of and our guest came in on Saturday for the wedding was Sunday. Scott was disappointed that his parents didn't come even after we told them we would pay for everything, but that's a story for a different time.

I remember the night before wanting to have a girls night out and I got so mad at Scott due to the fact that he had all of us going to a show that night that didn't end until after midnight and I did want to see him the day of our wedding until it was time for the limo.

So a friend stayed with me in the hotel that night and we had been out to all types of casino's, drinking at all of them and I didn't get up until 1:30 the day of my wedding. It's so funny to look back at it all now. I don't remember much about that day other than eating pancakes and the lady coming to do my hair and makeup.

Well before I knew it my best guy friend in the world was calling saying the limo was ready to take us to the Chapel. I walked out of my room and there Scott was and he looked so happy with the biggest smile I had ever seen on him. He thought I was so mad from the night before that I wouldn't show up.

So off to the Chapel we go and we got married is what the video


The only thing I remember is laughing at what the preacher was saying and looking Scott up and down like he was going to run away or something. It was so funny to me.

We had a great reception at the MGM Grand with our large party of 8 people and gambled the rest of the night away.

Our friends left us on Monday and we honeymooned for 10 more days and it is a time I will never forget.

So now for the best thrift store purchase ever, well it was my wonderful handmade wedding dress. I got it for $50 at the Salvation Army store, had buttons put down the back for $40 and dry cleaned for $60 for a grand total of $150.

Sorry this post is so long and here are some pics of us.the best cake I have ever had

I think my head is going to EXPLODE!!!

Do you ever have those days to where your mind just works overtime? Well, lately mind has not stopped......(breathe in, breathe out.........not really working either)

So anywho, I have been searching none stop for a college to attend and I was hoping to start this year and things are not working out the way I want them!! (darn it)

I can go to be an RN, or surgical tech, but can't start the programs until 2010 and that sucks big time, or I can go to ECPI for medical assisting and start this March.........oh, but of course there is a catch there..... their program cost $24,000.00 for a 16 month program/

I have learned so much in the past 2 weeks that I'm worried now that I will make the wrong choice and be unhappy with it. Every college I have gone to has been pushing medical assisting and that is not what I want to do. I want to have a degree not just a diploma.

My biggest fear is that I will be a failure at this just like I have at everything else in my life....(I know pity party)

Anyways, if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

Doctor update

I think I am going to like my new doctor. If nothing else he was very easy on the eyes. I'm not sick my no means , but I do have a rash on my back that he thinks is from a new shampoo.

I also have a bacterial infection that I was given medicine for. I have been having issues with my bladder for almost a year now and that is the cause of the infection. In the coming months my doc is going to put a mesh sling to hold my bladder an that should stop all the issues.

I am a little nervous this morning. I have an appointment with a new general practice doctor. My doc of 8 years left his practice in December and I was an still am very saddened by that.

I have to go to the doc every six months for a liver panel and to have bloodwork done. I really hope I like this doctor, cause it took me weeks to decide on someone new. I will post more when I get home latter today about my visit.

Anywho, I was thinking that on my way home there is 5 TS I can stop to ease my nerves and that sounds like a good plan for the day.

I also need to go to Forsyth Tech to see what types of programs they offer. I want so bad to be a surgical tech, but after my visit to the college yesterday I'm not to sure that is what I will do.

The school only takes 36 new students every fall and it is already full for 2009 so I would even be able to begin until 2010 and the program is 2 years long. So anyways, I figure I can choose something else and learn surgical tech through a hospital program or something.

I will post later tonight on the doctors visits and if I find anything at the TS.

Until Then...........

Our booth will be named "Hand Maidens" and each one of us craft in diffrent styles. So if you are ever in the area stop by for a visit at The Anitque Market Place just off I-40 and NC 68

When One Door Closes

I have decided after a lot of thought and thousands of tears to close my website Cinnamon Creek Primitives.

I made this decision so that I can focus on going back to school and hopefully going nback to work.

I will continue to craft and sell my products.

I have always heard the old saying that when one door closes another one opens, and I do believe this to be very true.

I'm A Born Again American

If you love this country and hate all the corruption you see going on today; you'll need to grab a hanky. Pass this on to others that might enjoy it...

How has your Sunday been?

I love Sunday's!!! It's the one day out of the week that I spend my whole day with my husband. He works from 3 pm to midnight or after Monday - Friday at UPS. So on Saturday that is the day he gets to rest and do whatever it is he wants or need to do.

So on Sunday's he is all mine......... We usually get up pretty late in the day and one of us will fix breakfast. This morning he made us waffles. The puppy and I just love them. I got Scott a waffle iron for Christmas and it has been one of the best purchases ever made in this house. I wanted to make waffles several weeks ago for dinner and Scott pouted that I was going to use HIS waffle iron. I thought that was so funny.

Anywho, it is so nice here today. I decided I would run to the Goodwill while Scott took a shower. Well it was not worth the trip at all. We have two Goodwill's here in Greensboro and both of them suck big time.

Ok, so Scott is going to make dinner tonight. That is another one of the things we usually do on Sunday's is to eat at home. We like to go out to dinner on Saturday and cook on Sunday so we can watch Desperate Housewives together.

Scott is no chef, but he sure has a lot of fun playing one. I am not sure what is is going to fix other than chicken and I'm sure it will have cheese in it or on it, since that is his favorite food.

So what is your favorite thing to do on Sunday's?

Been very busy lately.

Last week was very busy for me. I took a week long class at Joblinks here in Greensboro, trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I think it's time for me to go back to school. Boy oh boy doesn't that sound like a lot of fun.

I am 40 years old and the first time I went to college I was 26. I love having my website and doing craft shows throughout the year, but I need something more. I need a reason to get out of the house everyday and going back to school will give me that reason.

So if you were a 40 year old women ready to go back to school what would you want to be? I am really leaning towards being a surgical tech. I took a placement class last week and I scored really high in the health field and I figure I'm to old to become a heart or brain doc

Anyways, I go to a class tomorrow and then next week also and then I hope I have decided by then. I would love to hear any suggestions.

Also, if you have the time, please sign up to follow my blog, you never know it might be really fun.

Until Next Time..........
