Your wedding cost how much!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!

Cost of weddings in 2017.   $35,000!!!

I can see why so many people aren't getting married! Sheesh. I can't believe that people spend that much money. 

My wedding was in my in-laws back yard.. which sounds cheesy but they had 2 1/2 acres and it was beautifully lanscaped. I am so glad we never went into debt for our wedding. Considering the average marriage is lasting 12 years (Average length of marriages around the world) That is about the investment you put into a car. 

How much did you spend on your wedding? What would you change if you could? I honestly can't remember how much ours cost.. but it was a pretty insignificant amount and it was still lovely. What would I have changed.. well I was married in a beautiful designer dress, but I always regretted it wasn't a wedding dress. The cost of them was out of my range.. and I made due. We have been married for 21 years, so in the end it didn't matter.

Still tastes like soap!

Last week I was at the dollar store. It was a quick trip and I only had a couple things. I was waiting at the check out and looking around at all the things around the till when I spotted something that I must have missed out on in my childhood. "Thrive" gum.. the slogan on the pack was what got my attention... "it still tastes like soap".  I posted about this on the Happy Canadian Mom facebook page and was surprised by how many people had tried this before.
