G and I toured this place yesterday, and got several pricing scenarios. It's a one-stop shop, including ceremony on-site, cocktail reception, seated three-course gourmet dinner, "designer" wedding cake, dancing, and an on-site wedding coordinator. Add to that flowers, photography, wedding attire, participant gifts, and other sundry items. Our "special day" will cost >gasp< over twice as much as my first wedding. We're paying for the whole thing ourselves.
I'm still waiting to hear about that job I interviewed for two Fridays ago. I was informed today that I "bring a lot to the table" and that my "personality alone made me stand out from the crowd." I am, supposedly, the front-runner. The team will decide tomorrow who to hire.
For most of the day tomorrow, I will be in Hackensack, studying with my old classmates for the licensing exam next week. I am hoping and praying that, in the middle of our studies, I'll get the call telling me the job is mine.
If that happens, I will re-join Weight Watchers tomorrow night, when I get home. Thursday I will overhaul the kitchen, and start making phone calls to bridal salons. Then I will email my favorite designer and take her up on her offer to send me some samples to try on. Friday, I will study my butt off for that test.
Next Thursday, I will ace that test.
Come on, job. Come on, licensing exam. Come on, wedding. Come on, 2007!
