Furious, ticked, miffed and hurt! - Page 8

icon_smile.gif I appreciate the support and most importantly, the prayers. Papaw seems to be doing better...day by day...but after 57 years of being with Mamaw, I can only imagine how heartbroken and lonely he is. We're hoping to have a break from monster amounts of cake orders in the coming weeks to where we can go back up (mountains of NC) to visit with Papaw. Ethan and Gracie (our children) LOVE it at Papaw's. His home is located in a "holler"...you Southerners know what I mean...LOL...creek running through the front yard...mountains as far as the eye can see. Who wouldn't love it there? Ethan and Gracie went "crawdad huntin'" after the funeral in Papaw's creek. That was their first time. LOL. Papaw had such a grin on his face watching their excitement! icon_smile.gif

Again, thanks so much for the support and prayers!!!

Amy

PS: I'll let you all know how it goes when we get back Sunday afternoon!!!

Thanks, Amy, for letting us know what happened. I'm glad the bride is more reasonable than her mother!

My best wishes and prayers for your family.

Please post on this thread when the wedding is over. I'd love to see the cake and hear how it all went. (The reason I specified "this thread" is sometimes people will post a follow-up to a story on a new thread, and since not all of us catch every thread on CC, it's easy to miss) Thanks!

Amy I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers next week.


BTW - --I agree Holly! Thanks for specifiying here! I always go back to threads and will ask what happened!

My pics are too large, apparently. I'm not sure how to decrease them, so I'll just say that they're up on my website home page (upper right corner) and more are on the wedding cakes page (far left side).

Thanks again!!!

Cakes, cookies, AND strawberries with all the drama from MOB?!?! Amazing.....

So sorry to hear about the loss of Mamaw. Sounds like Papaw will be ok. Crawdaddin is just the thing!! (Especially with your kids ) You and your family are in my prayers - I hope you have a little peace now that this wedding is over.....

Thank you, Beth and Becky.

You know, I forgot to add in on my update that when we had finished with the cakes, cookies, pictures, etc., we glanced around the room, and there she was....THE MOTHER OF THE BRIDE!!!!!!!! Okay, I'm not positive that it was her, but she had the corsage on...formal MOB gown...I just know it was her. Anyway, we high-tailed it to the service entrance. Our job was done anyway. No need to have me in tears... LOL. I'm so happy with the job that I did...and I don't say that often. I'm my worst critic. I guess that all decorators are like that. We see the flaws and imperfections that others don't. Anyway, it's over and I'm pleased. I hope that the bride and groom are as well. They are truly a very sweet couple!

Had a look at your website and the cake, cookies and strawberries look really good. Glad all turned out well. My condolences on the loss of Mawmaw and I will keep your Pawpaw in my prayers.

Just off topic, I was wondering why you put your schedule with the names of your client and other details on the web?

Even though I send out confirmations for deliveries/pickups the week prior to the scheduled time, my clients requested "reminders" on my website. This has proven a valuable, and appreciated tool for the clients. They love it, so I keep it updated for them.

another question about your website amy, did your "preferred" vendors pay for you to advertise on your site? or is it a "i refer to you, you refer to me" kinda thing? you have so many unique features on your site!

the wedding cake looks beautiful, im glad it all worked out for you!
