Wedding music Poll

My sister and brother in law have been working hard on getting music ready for the wedding. I finally got the music into my laptop and set up the playlist they created.

My music tastes are, shall I say, different than what you hear at ANY wedding. I love bands like Tool, Ween, Bad Brains, Black Flag. My wedding guests would not appreciate if I put all my music on there, and Em and I want our quirky touch in the music selection. How much ‘original’ music should one put in the playlist? I can’t see people out dancing to songs they’ve never heard before! By the same token, the cheesy classics from the 70s and 80s seem to get everyone up and dancing like crazy.

What was a good wedding you have been to that had great tunes?


How a Bridal Shower made for a good Father’s Day

My fiancee Emery went out all day today with her family for her bridal shower. I’m not sure how that differs from a stagette, but she went out to get her nails done for the wedding and then out for dinner with a few people. Maybe the difference between a stagette and a bridal shower is the male strippers? Or the excessive alcohol? I hope she had a great time!

That left me looking after the boys all day. I had our youngest from mid-morning until she ends up coming home later tonight. I then picked up my oldest from his last cub scout camp. But enough about what I did today…

I really enjoyed today! Tomorrow is really Father’s Day, but I got to spend one on one time with my boys and just relax and hang out. That seems to never happen!

Off to go watch a movie and savour the little time I get with my boys. 🙂

My fiancée Emery and I are getting closer to the big day, and are trying the best we can to piece together our wedding.

Wedding Plans

It’s not going quite as planned. It seems more like we are piecing together a wedding for everyone that we’ve invited, rather than a wedding for us. But I guess that is what a wedding should be! Continue reading “Wedding Plans, Vows, and Stress”

Why do people care about the Royal Wedding? I have the answer…

Today was the ‘historic’ royal wedding of Prince William and Kate What’s-her-name. I didn’t tune in(don’t have cable), nor would I have. It’s not that I am against supporting such a huge event, it’s just that the wedding would be the most boring wedding EVER!

Seriously, from what I have seen online, it is very much a protocol wedding, full of rules, and every detail planned to the umpteenth degree. Continue reading “Why do people care about the Royal Wedding? I have the answer…”
