Reasons I am Crazy...

I've learned a lot about myself through the wedding planning process. One of the most glaring lessons being, I am a glutton for punishment. I think I've made a decision and then I keep looking, and keep looking, and keep looking, almost inviting something better to come along that I just have to have. The escort cards were one of those things. But we're getting to that point in the process where the looking for ideas has to end. Its time for action. So before I came completely sick of myself, I made a decision. We're going with the wishing rock idea where each card will have a black river rock next to it.

There will be a sign on the table asking guests to please hold the rock in their hand, make a wish "on it" and then place it in a large glass container we will keep in our house afterwards. It's like a lucky penny/wishing well type of scenario. As if I were getting a nod of approval for finally making a decision, I found this in the sale section of PotteryBarn when I started looking for said large glass container:I opted for the short chubby one on the left, which was on sale for $44 and I had a $30 gift card. Sold. It arrived a couple of weeks ago and was a little bigger than I anticipated, but I like it nonetheless.I ordered it online because they didn't have it available any longer in our local stores. And it arrived in the biggest box ever. So big, in fact, that I couldn't imagine what it contained and for a brief second thought it was our first wedding present. But anyway, seeing as how its Friday, I leave you with a gratuitous puppy picture. Lola in the outrageously big box:

Oh, Darci...I have the same problem! I am terrible at making the decisions in the first place but then once I have made it, I change my mind a million times. It drives me crazy! I really am crazy!!! I think that wedding planning just really brings out the crazy in all of us :)

Hi Darci! i thought i would share with you and an other bride looking for glass bowls or containers (like in the case of the candy bar containers) that Home Goods is an excellent source for those. They have excellent prices and various shapes. I like your idea of the rocks. :-) Mirelis.
