Ramblings... :)


Hey Guys, sorry I haven't written in a few day... :(
I know, excuses... I still have to get my post up about my flowers
and I really am still reading Sense and Sensibility, it was just put on hold for a few days...
Willie moved this week, and I've been helping him get things back in order... Lol so anyway... I should have a couple new posts up one of these days...
Although I am learning all about guest list making... boy oh boy is it hard...
talk about complicated... My family was easy. His, well sort of. But our church? Normally I would just send an invite to the whole church, but the services average, about Fifteen Hundred to, Two Thousand people on any given Sunday, so that won't work...
So trying to track down the list of people who we want to come, so they can write down the information is interesting. I think we have a few more people to get, but hopefully we will not have too many more...
Not that we "don't like" anybody else, we just don't want a huge wedding... so the trek to seek out wedding guest continues and hopefully I will complete it with out stressing out too much. :)

Wedding Veils... So many Choices... What to Do?


I have been Look At veils today, trying to envision what veil I would look best in :)
But I am having a little difficulty...
If you want, leave a comment on what you think.
I would love the input.
Thanks, Jess
This is the pattern (Its McCall's 3508 Alicyn Exclusives)I am looking at now, They sell it at Hancock Fabrics
a fabric store where I live. I am not sure if it would work and am still in the thinking stage, bu would enjoy your opinion. :)



These are some of my Favorite styles, they always have been, but again still in the thinking stage, and would love to hear from you guys. :)






Now I think that There are a lot of women Who look Good in these type of veils...












...But I am not sure they are for me, I think there is too much Fluff and too many frills.


























































Sweet, Adorable, Lovable Jenny, One of my Dearest Friends.
She was such a beautiful Bride, She chose to wear a Bird Cage veil ...
And she looks absolutely fabulous in it.
Again I Think lots of women look Gorgeous in them, but I'm not sure its for me, I mean, I do not think it matches my style. Although my wedding will have a tiny bit of a twenties flair. the guys are going to wear fedoras and have dressy vests and ties. I told Willie, they would look like the mafia and he went for it Lol, otherwise I couldn't get him to decide on anything I showed him :-p

Willie's Bubble Theory


Willie has this theory, it's actually a pretty good theory and it describes me very well.
I worry about everything, even things that are really ok on their own, but because of this I panic over very trivial things its just plain silly half the time.and the other half, well I really shouldn't worry, because God's got it under control. :)
OK here's the Theory:
Jessica is in a bubble
and she has put everything around her in a bubble.
And these bubbles are her way of organizing her life. Anyway,
When ever one of these bubbles pop,
she panics!
Never mind that it has in no way harmed her bubble,
or even dented, scratched, or gashed the surface. It still messed with "her bubbles"
Now keep in mind, that I worry about everything,
so in my mind it affects me when something is out of place.
Now in order for a "bubble" to pop something must go wrong, or turn up missing,
or just plain does NOT work out
I have gotten considerably better at not panicking
but for someone who worries, thats like telling them to not breathe lol
In other words, I feel like that yellow fish in Finding Nemo
You know the one that is always going after the bubbles
"Bubbles... bubbles, bubbles, My Bubbles"
So Now you know what I am talking about when I say a bubble popped. ;)

"First Impressions" My love of all things Jane Austen ;)



I am attempting to read all of the works by Jane Austin... wish me luck. :)

Jane Austen
b.December 16, 1775
d. July 18, 1817
She only wrote six major novels and three minor novels, two of which are unfinished (because of sickness, then eventually death).
~Sense and Sensibility~
1811
~Pride and Prejudice~
1813
~Mansfield Park~
1814
~Emma~
1816
~Northanger Abby~
1818
(published posthumously)
~Persuasion~
1818
(published posthumously)
~Sandition~
(Unfinished)
~~~~~~
She also wrote a few minor works here and there. the ones I found on Wikipedia Were:
~Love and Friendship~
~The Beautiful Cassandra~
~The History of England~
~The Watson s ~
(Unfinished)

She started writing when she was young, just a teenager, and worked through out her life as an author of little repute.
She chose to publish her books anonymously which never amounted to much fame or recognition for herself, She was only really known to the literary until her family, in the form of her nephew collectively published the book A Memoir of Jane Austen, This Brought her work to a wider audience. Her books have become increasingly popular since, and have established her As a classic Literary Author to many. :)
