About Me

I am a crazy woman, funny and carefree but type A and anal all at the same time. I have two daughters and a Father who's a King...what more do I need?! My goal on this planet is to help His bride: literally (I plan weddings for a living!) and spiritually (I occasionally offer words of wisdom to loved ones...) Bless us all on this journey!

Weddings, Risk, and Retail


Ok prayer project for the week: I turned in a loan application yesterday at my bank to see about openning a wedding store. Tuxes, invites, bridesmaid/prom dresses, photo albums, I even have a girl that paints bridal portraits and a guy who custom builds hope chests. I have the opportunity to get some retail property in Kouts, which doesn't have anything like the store I'd like to open. Of course I'd do wedding planning out of there as well, and even have a kid room to play in. I'm excited and scared and broke and hopeful all at the same time! But here's my promise: anyone who helps me pray it into being can come hang out at the store, drink coffee and look at bridal magazines all day long. It'll be the coolest estrogen filled hangout ever:)

What a cool idea! You would be great at this! I always had a secret desire to be a wedding planner! When you get famous and are so busy you don't know what to do, you can hire me! :) I will definitely pray for your venture! And I would love to come check it out and hang out when it all comes together!

here's the update: turned in the app monday, talked to the lady tues and weds. weds when she called it was about 2 things on the credit report (don't you love those?!) from 2001. FORTUNATELY the good Lord made me freakishly organized and i was able to pull some files and be standing in front of her desk with them in hand within 45 minutes. she was pleasantly surprise:) so she faxed those out right away, now it's thurs and she's researching a check from 2002 to make sure a certain payment cleared. isn't that nuts?! anyway if i get it i'll still do the few events a month at the church, but i literally only do like 2 weddings a year there... I NEED MORE
