Hey guys, I am so excited Fiance, my mother and I looked at reception halls today. The two we looked at were both nice, middleton hall had very pretty high ceilings a small fountain and mural, the other was an american legion post hall in my home town which was a bit cavernous but the light fixtures had a nicer finish. Prior to looking at them I had been leaning towards middleton hall primarily due to what I remembered the american legion looked like and it seemed like it would cost less but the legion was renovated a year or so ago evidently and looks pretty now. After talking to both places we realized that the legion is also going to be cheaper, they aren’t charging us extra for bartenders or cake cutting. Plus we are not stuck using an on site caterer, which is awesome! So excited, a little worried about my sister’s reaction, she tends to be critical of anything my mother suggests or helps pick and ever since she heard mom suggest the legion shes talked of how tacky and out dated it is (I don’t think shes seen it since the renovations) It frustrates me that her and mom go back and forth like they do but I expect it to get worse as the day gets closer.
On a happier note my ring comes in tomorrow!!!! I am so so so excited and can’t wait to see what ring he picked. He and I looked at stones and settings at the natural sapphire company and he had me pick my favorites for him to pick from. It would have been her last week but sandy delayed that a bit. I hope he gives it to me soon after it gets here it’s been driving me crazy waiting (I am not a patient person) and it has taken ever bit of will power I have to keep from looking to see which of my favs was missing from the site. AHHHH SoOO EXCITED I COULD WEEE
