Miscellaneous Monday


Aug 30, 2010

First and foremost – did you see Holly & Andy’s beautiful morning wedding that I posted late last week?  If not, scroll down.  I’ll wait.  Seriously, it’s worth it.

One of my joys every Monday has been watching the latest episode of The Pillars of the Earth on Netflix.  This is one of my all-time favorite books, and the interpretation to the small screen is masterfully done.  The acting is fantastic, the scenery is breathtaking and the way they have twisted this multi-faceted story into a series is just great.  I’m sad that it is almost over.  I wish they had continued with part two and done World Without End as well.

We had a tremendously beautiful wedding day last Saturday at the American Club in Kohler.  Sunshine, a slight breeze and good temperatures.  Throw in a wonderful couple and their cutie-pie dog as ringbearer, and it could hardly get better.  Congratulations to Marisa and Jon!  Enjoy Oahu!

There won’t be a Miscellaneous Monday next week in respect to Labor Day.  The ladies of my family and I will be out on our annual Labor Day shopping trip.  This year we are hitting the stores in Lake Geneva and Delvan.  We thought it was time for something different from the usual outlet malls.  Any recommendations for where to eat lunch or what stores to be sure to hit?

I watched The Cove last night.  (Hubby tried, but he fell asleep) It is a film I had heard much about.  It is quite good, and quite arresting. If you haven’t seen it, you really should. You can go here to learn more about the issues it explores.

Next week I’m headed to Minneapolis for an engagement session.  I haven’t been back there since my first two years of college (which is math we won’t be calculating).  I’m excited to see what has changed!

I ordered the wedding album for one of Amy’s (my associate photographer) clients today, and I really love it.  Amy did a fantastic job with this wedding, and Camille had such excellent taste in her choices for gowns and flowers.  Check it out by clicking here:

Dates for next week are being snatched up lately like scarce candy.  I’m so excited about every single wedding of 2011, I can hardly wait for it all to unfold!

I don’t bring up politics often, but this discovery last week really disturbed me.  Apparently, there is a rider on the health care bill that will require every business to send a 1099 to everyone and every business they spend more than $600 with.  So, if you bought more than $600 in supplies from Office Max, you’ll be sending them a 1099.  Seriously.  You can read all about it here. This is all so that the government can hopefully uncover unreported income – a loss in taxes they estimate at 3 billion a year.  Luckily, this wont’ take effect until 2012, but my head already hurts from the idea of keeping track of all of this.  The idea that things like this get tacked onto legislation that has nothing to do with them, seemingly for the purpose of going un-noticed is what is really disturbing.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for today, and I’d say that it’s quite enough.  Have a great week, and a great holiday!
