Remember When... You Got Married?
Enjoy my wedding then scroll down to the bottom and add your name and the link to your wedding post (not your main blog). If you are linking a new post include a link back here so your friends can show off their weddings too. The linky will be open all week so be sure to check back to see the latest wedding flashbacks!
My hair had fresh flowers...
We really wanted the ceremony to be short and simple. It rains a lot here in February... it poured every other weekend in the WHOLE month. The week before, at the rehearsal, it was pouring... I mean sheets of rain. We were knee deep in mud and water. We had no "plan B." We must have been blinded by love... ha!

I started Penny Pinching Diva as a way for me to blog about my family and share with other people my experiences of "pinching pennies". I am a stay at home mom, so I had to learn how to take care of my family of six on one income. So here I was, surfing the Internet one day and I came across all of these websites on how to save money and how to use coupons. I decided to combine my blog into a little bit of everything. So I post about my family as well as money saving tips, couponing, shopping at CVS, recipes, crafts and frugal living.
If you only had 3 quick Penny Pinching hints to someone who wanted to save money they would be...
- Always use coupons
- Shop off season
- Learn how to play the CVS game
What inspires you?
My family inspires me. Everything that I do, I do it for them.
Thanks Shynea for Hosting this giveaway!!

Remember When you got married?
Did you have a big princess wedding? An elegant beach wedding? A shotgun wedding? Elope? Did you get wasted and wed in Vegas?
Share your unique day with me.... because I want to know... really!! I love this stuff.
It will be so much fun to show off what a hottie you were in your wedding dress and those perfect centerpieces and that family member that got a bit too wild and the first dance and...
Just to get your juices flowing... below is one picture from my wedding... I love that the breeze is blowing my veil off my face. We are listening to our vows and Brad is thinking "I can't wait for tonight!!" (btw - I did have a chocolate fountain at my wedding... it broke... so we turned it into chocolate fondue!!)
Rules for the Linky (simple but read them anyway!)...
- The post has to be about a wedding... if you haven't had one or are too embarrassed to share yours, post some vintage pix of your grandma's big day. (I'm thinking I'll do my mom's and my Granmom's too!!)
- It should have pictures
- When you add your link, do it for that specific post only. NOT your blog
- It doesn't have to be a new post... so if you posted about your wedding 3 years ago and you don't want to write a new one, just link to the one you already did!
- Link your post back to the my post on the 27th so your blog visitors can join the wedding-show-off-fun too!
- Comment on the weddings you visit... cuz we all LOVE comments!!
(If you don't know how to do a linky then just email me and I'll walk you through it!! That's how bad I want to see your wedding mania!)

Those are the 2 reasons I breast fed my kiddos.

So I came up with this solution...
The first Eli's Lids Linky "Remember When You Got Married?"will be on January 27th. So get those photos scanned in, and that post written so you can show off your day as a bride (or anti-bride!)!!!
