seasoning, arrows, and a forehead flashlight…

hello tuesday readers!! i’m still away having fun but in my place is another of my fave bloggers, tabitha. i’m sure you’ve heard me rant and rave about her before (mostly in regard to wedding jewelry and being totally awesome) so i’m SUPER excited that she’s taken the time to write up something oh-so-tabitha for me. so enjoy, check out her page (linked below) and leave her some commenty love.


Hiya, folks! I’m Tabitha, and I blog over at This is a picture of me with Salt-N-Pepa:

(Bwahaha…I crack me up.)

Anyway. I’m so happy to be here at Cari’s place today, but I have to confess something:

The selfish/lazy side of me was really tempted to use this opportunity to show off the jewelry I made for Cari’s wedding (and of course, to promote my fabulous jewelry-making services to other brides-to-be and girls-who-just-like-pretty-sparkly-things), but I’m better than that. Kind of.

I’m still going to show you this one photo, which I totally stole off of Cari’s facebook, but you just HAVE to see how gorgeous she was on her wedding day (and, yeah, how awesome the necklace and earrings I made look on her)…

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, I thought I’d share a little anecdote from my own wedding. First, a little background on my husband, Joe. This guy actually cared about the plans that went into our wedding day. Unlike a lot of husbands-to-be, who are happy to “shut up and show up,” Joe had ideas…LOTS of them. And you know what? I loved it. But I had to draw the line at rigging the unity candle to light with a MAGNESIUM STRIP. Uh…no. Just no.

Another idea Joe had was to go after my garter with a forehead-mounted mining flashlight. I protested lightly, saying it was a funny idea but what if we offended someone? Or something. But he declared that he would do it, and I passively poo-pooed him, thinking, “Well, it would be pretty funny, but I won’t remind him about it if he forgets.”

Well, friends…he didn’t forget.

But I totally forgave him, because everyone laughed and it was such an “us” thing to do. And thus began what will be a lifetime of silly antics from the Carnes couple.

Anyway, that’s all from me for now.

Do you have any funny stories from your own (or someone else’s) wedding?
Tell me about it!

And thanks again, Cari, for letting me steal the spotlight for a day! Hope you’re having LOADS of fun on your honeymoon!
