My blog is just about any and everything. I'll write a few short stories, and poems. The title: "Will the Real Lynn Allen Please stand Up" is to let you know that I'm going to do nothing but keep it real. Some of my topics are debatable and if you want to comment freedom of speech isn't dead.

The Wedding Diaries: Getting It Together
The Wedding Diaries:
Getting it Together
Hello all my lovely
readers. I hope you are having a wonderful day.Me, I am actually still in my PJ’s, debating on if I should go into the
kitchen and make some coffee.So, I’m
looking at the calendar and I’m realizing that it’s almost one year until my
wedding day.So naturally it’s time to
get started on planning the most important day of my life.A lot of people have asked why I don’t have a
wedding planner. I’ve decided that my sister, Makiba, my best friend, Corinna,
and I will be my wedding planners.A lot
of people are telling me that this process is going to stress me out, but they
have not seen me work magic in a crisis.
We are already
narrowing down our choices for venues.I
just have to work on the guest list. I would like to put a disclaimer out and
say that L and I come from pretty big families and that if I don’t send you an
invite, please don’t be mad, we are working on a budget and I don’t purposely
want to leave anyone out, but money really is an object here.
On the note of who
will be in my bridal party I’ve only decided on Makiba and Corinna. I’m still
working on the rest, because frankly some of my friends make me really
nervous.When I say nervous I mean I
watch them going through life and all the curves that it throws; and I wonder if
they will be able to juggle that and be able to live up to my expectations.
Let’s be honest, being a bride’s maid is more than just standing up
there with the bride and looking pretty; there is a lot of work that goes into
it. I need to see how I’m going to narrow this down.I think that I have a plan on how I can do
that, more on that in a later edition of my blog.
Another thing to work
on is L and I. Why do we need to work on us, because no relationship is
perfect. In a previous blog I wrote that L and I needed to work on our spiritual
relationship with God.The steps that we
are taking to do that are to actively find a church that we can become members
of together. Not to mention most church members also take a class before they
get married and that is what we are trying to do now.We have a church in mind, which is good.
