Anniversary Party

Ok we are swiftly approaching our 1yr ANNI so I want to have a PARTY! Of course I do! My husband has finally agreed and I am setting a budget of $1500 that's all that has to cover the food, bldg rental, invitations, and entertainment. Back in April my family had a 85th B-day party for my grandmother so I am thinking we will use the same facility. It includes the food and rental. We are only hosting this party for 60-75 people. Here is how I am going to budget this:

Food and facility- $600
Dj- $200
Invitations - $25
Decor- FREE
Cake- $100
TOTAL: $1085

We may possibly change our plans and have a cook-out of something instead. Who knows but we are def having a gathering.

We decided to have a BOWLING Party. We met at the Bowling Alley so that's where we had our first anni party with family and friends.

Hi there strangers....

Its been a long time since my last post. We just celebrated our 9 month anniversary. Time is flying by! I truly love being married but its a challenge at times but the beauty is working your way through the obstacles. I completed the BSN of my program in May those last few months were terrible.

 I started summer school 3 weeks later and now its almost over but I feel like I tortured myself this summer doing way too much. It's prime wedding season and my company has been booked. Last weekend was my first weekend off since March. Can you say exhausted. But I am truly gratfeul for the business. I am also still teaching at a local community collge but I have decided that I am going to take a break for the Fall and work full-time as a RN to improve my skills set. So I recently accepted a position at on a medical stepdown unit. We are also doing some home improvements this summer which is time consuming and expensive not as much as last year.

We also have been planning our 1 yr Anniversary party. Just something small and intimate. Its a dinner party. About 60-75 people and I want it to be like a Casino night but I still have called to inquire how much the tables rent for as of yet. Shooting for a Harlem Nights theme. The color palette is black. white and red. I will post some of my ideas soon.
