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 and Livestock


I signed my lease (yay!) Saturday and unfortunately, have to paint after all. That's ok, my awesome mama volunteered (or was volunteered, depending on how you look at it!) to help today. So here's the beauty of Kouts. At lunch time we went 2 doors down to George's Coffee Cup, the town diner where the 70 year old farmers come in the bib overalls to drink coffee and complain about the government. Love it...
Then, there's the rust colored Kankakee river water that flows from all plumbing and therefore must be filtered; this honkin filter attached to the basement pipe is the size of my car. Finally, and this really is the kicker, I was reading something on my counter and looked up to see the tail end of a horse walking by my front window. Yep, a horse's patooty walked by and surprised me to the point that I asked my beloved matriarch, "uh, you saw that right?" She walked over to the window and announced that not only was there indeed a horse on the sidewalk, there actually were two (they did have people on them) and they walked over to the Family Express across the street long enough to poop a P I L E and then leave. Welcome to Porter County 46347.

Oh my goodness! I didn't realize Kouts was that much of a hick town! That is too funny! Well at least you get free entertainment with your lease!

Yep sounds like Kouts!! I grew up there, well i lived there til I was 12 anyway. It's still pretty much the same as it was 30 years ago.....whoa, I didn't realize it was 30 years ago that I was 12..I am really getting old.

Congratulations Jen, I am so proud of you and happy for you. I hope everything continues to go well. Hugs and continued prayers....Love ya!

Oh I do miss the grain elevator towns with their entertainment that is very cheap.

Happy for you that you got the little shop. It is so funny sometimes how God works everything out. He has such a awesome sense of humor. I will have to come and visit you there next time we come up.
