Friday, Staying on track

     I was able to get that stinkin expensive dress done and also get another Wedding dress ready to go.  I need the bride here to adjust a bustle.  I also ripped and got another ready to take in.  I am shocked at the #of brides that come in here with the wedding less than 3 weeks away.  I still have at least 4 dresses to get done before B's wedding.  I will not be taking any more work in after two weeks.  If it can't be done by the 26th it will have to wait until after the wedding.  My concentration the week before will be on our needs, not clients.

     We are meeting with a couple of good friends that will be helping with the food for the wedding this weekend.  Hubs and I did her daughters wedding and I will put them in charge of the kitchen once the ceremony starts.

     The resort we rented has a full beautiful industrial kitchen.  We will be there for 3 days so prep will be fine.  I have many family members and friends who will be here to help and I am assigning salads out.  We just have to go over the logistics.

     The littles are here today and they are running the roost.  I am happy to take a day away from the machines.  Although I will still have clients coming in.

     My arm is still really tender and I cannot lean on that elbow.  It is so strange as you don't realize how many times a day we lean on our elbows.  I can't wait until this is gone although it might be months. Still grateful it is not broken.

     I will get some weeding done outside when I take the littles out to play in the kiddie pool. It will be nice to sit on the back deck in the sunshine and just sort of relax.

     Hubs has a follow up doctor appointment this morning and I am also sending him to the store for milk and a bag of candy.  I should have picked these things up yesterday, but I thought we had plenty of milk and Hubs the dirty honk ate all the littles candy.  I keep it to bribe potty training. Hubs excuse is that he goes potty also.....

How are you going to enjoy this Friday?  Any weekend plans?

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  1. Great work finishing up the $$$$ dress! I've done an hour of yard work (now all of our auxiliary containers are full, so I guess I'll stop). I also ordered our wedding album. Finally, just a bit overdue. ;-) 14 years later maybe. Did a load of laundry.

    Next up, I need to vacuum, do an indoor workout (pilates, I'm thinking?), maybe go for a walk depending on the temperature & my energy level, & call about a gift card.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I'm glad you were able to get those dresses done. I know how good it feels to get something checked off your to do list. The resort with industrial kitchen sounds great. It will be nice to work in that kind of kitchen.

    We are headed out to a Kevin O'Leary meeting tonight, but think yard sales will be called off due to rain. Time will tell.

  4. Yes, I can see how only doing TWO things at once (weeding and supervising the littles) would seem relaxing for your!

    1. Well unless I am sleeping I am not much one for sitting around. Although I do love to day dream and waste time.

  5. My bone bruised elbow took month to be better. My friend fell on her elbow and broke bone, had it set and reset and eventually had to have an elbow replacement. So, I am grateful for just pain and bruises.

  6. Congrats on getting the PIA dress finished.
    I hope your fees go up on a rush order. 3 weeks before a wedding to have a dress altered would require a higher fee. I paid through the nose to have a dress hemmed at the last minute (literally 45 minutes before we had to leave) which I would have done myself but it was one of those Mom intensive days, so it was worth the money. Only time I have ever picked up a dress, thrown it on at the shop and gone straight to an event

  7. Good job getting that dress out of the way. It sounds like you have the wedding under control and no doubt it will be wonderful.

    1. Well I don't feel in control. I feel totally out of control and I hope the meeting today can help me calm down.
