2015 Resolutions and Goals

Bethany and I have come up with some resolutions and goals for this coming year. Some of them should be easily attainable, some might take a little extra effort, and some might not be that realistic but we want to push ourselves. Some of them are things we can do to take care of ourselves, like using our Homedics Quad Shiatsu Massage Cushion with heat, or playing Xbox. Maybe if we take some time to pamper ourselves, it will make it easier to accomplish some of our other goals.

Are we missing anything?

67 days until the wedding!

Its New Years Day, 67 days until the wedding, and since we stayed the night at Bethany’s parents house, we decided to take advantage of this time and plan some wedding stuff. Right now Bethany and her mom are making mints while I’m looking at cake designs. We made a test batch of mints and they tasted good… they just wouldn’t unmold. Apparently you’re supposed to use the proper amounts of ingredients for it to work right!

I think we’ve just decided to contact who we want to do the cake and leave the design up in her hands. So now I’ll start working on the invitations and such. We’ll keep you posted!

Reception hall booked!

Tonight Bethany and I checked out Turner Hall in Keystone with her parents and my kids. This is the first time I had ever been to Turner Hall. I had been quite uncomfortable with the idea of having the reception at Turner Hall, but I was willing to check it out because Bethany wanted me to, and I just love her that much.

We entered through the bar area, and I was impressed by how… clean it was. It really looked clean! We were taken back to the reception area and again I was impressed by the cleanliness. Also, it was huge. The lady told us it can hold 400+ guests! Its a nice open area with a hardwood dance floor. I’m really excited to see what we can do with the space.

On an interesting side note, apparently back in the day Turner Hall was a pretty happening place. They use to have dances with live bands playing nearly every Saturday. It was here that Bethany’s parents, Marv and Michelle, first met. If it wasn’t for Turner Hall they never would have made a Bethany for me to marry!
