So This Is Life.

Before I say anything I want to say thanks to all the awesome comments I got on my last post! Seriously it helped so much! Shane and I have decided to cut our list down and are finalizing it this week. We thought about doing no kids but I really want his nieces and nephews in our wedding so we are cutting it down to close family and friends. I really hope that those who are not invited don't get offended.

I have another question though! Do you send out wedding announcements to people you aren't inviting? Or just send nothing at all? That part confuses me.

Anyways! Shane and I got a huge taste of life this last week. He was let go from his current position at Good Year Tire and Auto. Why you ask? "The owners are wanting to go in a different direction with you." is the answer he got. He asked if there was something he had done and they said his work ethic is great, his sales were above theirs, but the owners just wanted to go in a different direction. WHO SAYS THAT?!?! The really messed up thing is that the two managers that were telling him this sat there and acted like this was all new to them and they pretended to be in shock. They kept telling Shane that they would figure something out and make sure he still had his position. They sat and told him how they have his back and they are going to make sure everything works out. They text him all last weekend reassuring him of this. However, literally the next day they had a new guy in his position. Who is this new guy you ask? THEIR FRIEND!!

I'm not worried about what Shane and I are going to do about our bills or anything along the lines of money. We are extremely smart on that end. I am just frustrated that there are shady and back stabbing people out there that do those kinds of things. I thank God that Shane is an extremely productive person and he will find a new job very soon. In the mean time he is finding ways to make money on the side which is something I absolutely adore about him.

I am a firm believer in karma and that what you put out into the universe will come back to you. There is always a plan for everything and there is a reason that position didn't work out for him. It may feel unfair and frustrating right now but down the road I know we will look back and be grateful that it happened. I don't know what will make us do that but I do know we will feel that way. I'm glad our relationship and our love for each other is strong enough to overcome these types of obstacles in life.

That last one definitely reminds me of Shane. I hope you have all had a great weekend! :)


  1. Tell Shane I am so sorry... also tell him Jared can get him a job up North! ;) there are tons of Wells Fargo's up here! I also believe in putting good out and getting good back. With that said great things are in store for you two! Also with wedding invites. I only sent them to people we were actually inviting. Unless there are people that you know can't make it and want a keep sake. Like Jared has tons of family on the east coast and some cousins living abroad. We sent them invites, but knew they weren't coming.

  2. Ugh, that is so annoying, I can't believe do that to other people, seems illegal, but I know it's not, but it should be! Glad that you decided on your invite list, that is always the hardest. I don't think you should send announcements to people that you aren't inviting. To me, it's like saying, hey we're getting married, but you aren't invited but send us a gift anyway. I agree with Miki, we did send invites to people we knew weren't able to come just so they felt included, like family that lived on the east coast.

  3. New reader here, I'm sorry to hear about your fiancé losing his job...that's just rotten!
    As far as announcements go for the wedding I got into a little trouble here.

    My mother in law sent out precious announcements to a lot of her close friends that were not going to be invited to the wedding because of space and $$ constraints. This kind of back fired because some of the women ended up throwing me a shower and were then offended that they were not invited to the wedding. Super awkward but harmless from our end. It ended up being fine, but I just wanted to let you know what happened to us.

    What you can do it create a wedding website with links to your registries and post something on FB so that people will know about the wedding but will not assume that they are invited. Just make sure not to post too many location details so you don't have a few extras showing up...that happened to us as well! Yikes!

  4. Another new reader :)

    I'm pretty sure that them firing your fiance is illegal. My dad is going through a very similar situation right now, and has hired a lawyer. It's messy, but maybe that's an option? Although if you're not worried about it, then there are definitely better things to focus your energy on - like a wedding!


I love your comments, they just so happen to make my day! So PLEASE by all means comment away!
