I feel like now that I dont have any wedding stuff to do I need another hobby/project. I used to scrapbook ALOT and really need to get back into it because I havent since December and I have A TON of stuff to scrap and products bought. Ive probably spent at least $1-2k on scrapbooking stuff since I started about 2 years ago.
But now, I really want to do cake/cupcake decorating. Oh just another thing that I need to buy stuff for! 🙂 They offer classes at Jo-Anns for $27 for four 2-hour classes so I might try that. But I have to buy all the tips, color dye, etc and I know it just adds up and up.
Do you have a post-wedding project or new hobby? Is it going to cost you alot of money? 🙂

I want to get my life in order and start spending time relaxing!!! Between job, new home, and wedding there is little time to put my feet up. Thinking Sundays on the couch from the time we return from honeymoon – the holidays : )

My husband and I were talking about this the other day. We want to work on getting in shape and I want to get my body baby-ready!

I’m not post wedding but I like to try new recipes for baking stuff. Check with your local community center to see what adult classes they offer. There are a couple “dessert making” and “cookie decorating” classes available. I’m thinking about trying a ballet, “exercise at the barre” class.

I don’t wanna even THINK about post-wedding life! I told FI the other day that his sister needs to get engaged right after our wedding so I can keep wedding planning. I’m really looking forward to relocating a few months after the wedding. Both of us want to get the heck out of Ohio, so we’ll be job/apartment hunting and hopefully moving by Oct. 2010!

Let’s see: I’m thinking about going back to school full-time since I can’t seem to find a job. @EAQ219-we don’t want to leave Ohio but the job market is horrible here! We have a ton of home improvement projects we want to get started after the wedding. And on top of all that (if I can find the time), I want to get back into geneology/family history. I used to be really into it but haven’t really done much research for quite a few years. Plus all my other hobbies: scrapbooking, photography, learning how to knit (I’ve had this on my to-do list for years! Still haven’t learned!).

Well, the wedding isn’t quite over yet (8 days!!!) but I know that when it’s done I’m going to continue my favorite DIY project, jewelry making. The original plan was just to make the BM and maybe my own jewelry (as a way to save $). Well, by doing it, I found out that I loved it and went on to do jewelry for my FMIL, my mom, my grandma, the flower girl, and my personal attendant. I made myself a pair of earrings last night just for the heck of it and I’m wearing the right now.

I’m definitely nesting right now. I planted an herb garden, painted and redecorated one of our guest rooms and have been cooking up a storm! I love spending time on improving our house and making it our home. I’m also really enjoying spending some time with our couple friends with babies. None of them could make it to our destination wedding, so we’re trying to spend a little time with each of them and we love playing with the kiddos.
However, my BIL is getting married in October and my husband and I are both in the wedding party and helping with the wedding in any way we can. So it’s nice to still be in wedding-planning mode a little bit, but not have to worry so much b/c it’s not our wedding!

When I’m done with wedding planning, I’m excited to get back into cross-stiching/embroidery. I used to do it a lot in the evenings, but now my evenings are consumed with planning and going to grad school.

I’m still a long way from being done with wedding planning, but I’ve thought about what I will do with my gadgets after the wedding. I think I will start making my own greeting cards for one! I’d also like to start scrapbooking again since I will have lots of tools.

Since the wedding I have renewed my interest in researching my family genealogy. Now I want to research hubby’s too! I think it would be fun to take some small trips to visit the places where our families settled in the US and visit the library and town hall and see if we can find any old documents on them.

what about volunteering to help folks who are less fortunate? or working at an animal shelter or cleaning up parks in your community? tutoring young kids or acting as a mentor in big brothers big sisters? there are so many ways that we can use our time to make the world a better place!
