I’ve been a big fan of Hotwire for a while. I’ve usually gotten some pretty good deals and sometimes I can even figure out which hotel I’ll get before I make my purchase. I’ve noticed, however, that the extra fees I’ve been paying are much higher than they are on Priceline. When the cost of the one decent hotel in Canyon kept going up on the hotwire site, I tried Priceline and was able to get it for a better rate. So yesterday I was looking for a honeymoon hotel for when Matt and I head up to Buffalo. On a whim I tried putting in $75 a night for a 2 1/2 star hotel or above. Surprisingly, my bid was accepted for a 3 star hotel. I guess Matt and I should get our airfare arranged soon.
I couldn’t see what the big deal about Pinterest was at first. I signed up for it a while back, but I found it most helpful for my wedding planning. (Although it almost caused me to spill the beans about being engaged early.) I’ve posted a bunch of library and scrabble themed ideas that I’m trying to incorporate into my wedding decor. Lately I’m working on this:
Unfortunately, cutting the book is not as easy as it looks and mine will not be even remotely straight as it appears in this photo, but I think it’s a cool idea for my ring bearer.
I’m still trying to come up with Scrabble board scrapbook ideas, but haven’t found my inspiration on that yet.
I also have some old books I’ve been incorporating into decorations and plan on creating a table runner.
I spent yesterday evening sorting through the numerous t-shirts that Matt has been keeping in baskets and bins in his closet and sorted them into drawers and this nice storage bench. Matt was kind of indifferent about it, but he has a nice closet where he can keep his laundry bin in it and actually close the door now.
