Morning everyone!
Peach - glad you sorted the carpet out, but truly they are so good at joins today.. as long as they lay the carpet with the nap facing the same direction, its not noticable... I have several joins in mine (only found out when I over-did the carpet shampooing trying to get a stain out right AT a join... disappeared when I dried it though). They even sell carpet 'tiles' now that you can lay down -- makes it easier than having a huge roll, if you get bad stain, just replace the stained tiles, and you can do a fun checkerboard floor if you want!!

Verna - good luck with the party... I have given several last minute speechs... but not good at telling other people how to give them... I try to stay away from the sappiness because I can't keep it together, so I just tell embarrasing stories or tease them a little.
(when one of my friends got married, she made me give a speech since I was her MOH... I joked that he has to take care of her, even if that means letting her rearrange the furniture for the 10th time that month or letting her watch the movie Twister for the 3rd time that week etc...). People like to hear stories too... at another wedding where I was the MOH again, I gave a brief story of everythign this friend brought to my life and in there I had told a story earlier on and tied it in at the end as a sappy happy ending for her etc... (the husband's grandfather asked for a copy of the speech so he could put it up on their family website).

oh geez Lisa you are always put in charge of tasks to do, thats Good!!
ok so heres what I have Lisa, let me know whatcha think....

Thank you all so much for coming, I know how busy you are all with family and work.

Work is what brings us here tonight- What started out as a part time job for Adam to help pay for our wedding became a career path for Adam. As Iíve said time and time again, I donít know that many people who love what they do but I can honestly say Adam loves what he does. Iíve seen a transition in Adam that is truly spectacular, he always takes pride in whatever he is doing and never leaves anything for someone else to do.
Iíve never met a person who showed so much passion for their work or whatever the task may be, he always gives 110 percent! Now Adam has been acknowledged for all of the hard work he does and puts into his career. Not only do we appreciate him, Gary appreciates him too!

I want to say Thanks to Gary for having such a wonderful work environment Ö I knew when we made our first trip to Lukas that there was something special about that place and that the owner must really take pride in his establishment to have such awesome people working there. You are always greeted with a smile and a helping hand when you leave. Gary you truly do a wonderful job at keeping hard working friendly employees and I want to say Thank You for the impact it has made on our family.

Now thanks to both of you for contributing to my 10 pounds that I have gained since Adam started working at Lukas and now Iíve had to join AA for all the different tasting events we are invited to. Not to mention all the alcohol that Adam feels the urge to buy so he can say "Heís tried it" when someone asks him if the product is goodÖ. Of course you know he has to twist my arm to have me try it to! I am lucky that my husband thinks of me when he goes to these events and wants me to join him so I can give my opinion from a females perspective. If my dad only knew that I was drinking Scotch and Whiskey he would roll over in his grave.


Truly I am very happy and proud of the choices you have made, Youíre my best friend, a wonderful husband, and a phenomenal dad to my children! Thank you for being you!!

I LOVE it Verna!!! Has the story, some laughs etc!!
Only suggestion would be to add a 'toast' to the end... "to Adam"... just to give people something to say as they clink their glasses etc...

thats a great speech verna! very heartfelt with a couple laughs! good luck tonight, I am sure you will do awesome! whatre you gonna wear?

We didn't do shiz for the annivers yesterday. In fact, DH played online games all night and watched football while I took chompy on a long walk. We are going out for dinner tonight though. I don't mind, I told him I didn't really want to make a deal out if it till later maybe five years we will do something!
