Friday Morning Goodwill Goodies
So here's what we got at Goodwill on Friday! Above is the $5 picnic basket which we think we're going to use to organize the programs. We could definitely use it after the wedding too!
We also started to collect vases for the table centerpieces. Maybe you can already tell, but one of our colors is green... The two larger vases were $2 a piece and the smaller cup was $1.
Here's the larger collection of our finds. There are still a few things missing though. I don't want to let everyone know all of the wedding secrets! The enamel vase on the top cost us a measly $3, the blue vase on the left was $2, and the one on the right was half off, for only $1!
On Friday Andy and I also visited the wedding venue with our parents. The barn was recently flooded from the insane flooding in the valley in mid-January. There was a lot of clean-up action going on which put us off at first, but then we found out that the park host knows my family, and works at the tribe's food bank! Through the food bank he knows my aunt, uncle, and grandpa. The flood water line in the barn was about 4.5 feet up the wall!
Walking across the park's suspension bridge was an interesting experience too. My mom and Sandy (Andy's mom) kept insisting that Andy and his dad (Albert) were making the bridge sway, but they swear they weren't. The yurts were cute- they all have their own little decks and porch lights. When we were there I think I spotted the sight for the ceremony but I want to go back for another look in about a month or so. Something about the valley area feels very homey to me. It's beautiful, and I can't wait to have our wedding there!
