Wedding Location Help Needed [12 Mar 2009|12:20pm]

painglass
[ mood | hungry ]

I have recently found myself engaged to a fabulous person. Originally we wanted to get married in Greece with a few family members and friends with us, but the date (which I am inflexible on!) is hyper expensive for everything, seeing as its the high tourist season in Greece (end of August/Early September). So, we've decided to get married here in Milwaukee, and spend a month in Europe instead. A good deal for less money, I think. :)

My problem is that I've no idea how to go about finding an appropriate spot for such a thing. My fiance wants to get married in a church, preferably Catholic, but since I am atheist and not at all interested in converting to Catholicism just to get married, I suspect that's not going to happen. I need a small, bright church (our wedding and wedding party combined is only going to be 35-50 people, max) that doesn't have a problem with my lack of religion or a gorgeous garden with a church or European/Greek/Italian feel to it, preferably with a space to throw a reception afterward.

Does such a thing exist in Milwaukee? Is it possible to find a priest to marry an atheist and a Catholic?

Internet Providers [09 Nov 2008|04:42pm]

Hi Everyone!

I was just wondering if you all could tell me what internet provider you have and how much you pay per month.  I currently have AT&T DSL.  I never use my land line so I feel like I am just wasting money.  I am paying about $45/month and I am hoping that there are some other options! Thanks!

My sister and I are trying to clear stuff out and so, we are having a joint yard sale THIS SUNDAY ONLY! If you want or need some of our stuffy, swing on by. This sale is fabulous if you know someone with a baby on the way or already here! Really though...my sister is tight on cash and moving, so this seems like a great idea right now. Also, I'm moving a year from now for grad school, and would love to just clear out most of the stuff now, so I don't have to think about it next summer. Help some sisters out by stopping by!

Curious about area rents. [12 Jul 2008|10:47am]

blishlock
I'm looking at places to live in and around Milwaukee. The Riverwest area looks pretty nice, but I'd like to get some information about rents.

What are you getting for what amount of rent? I'm trying to figure out how far a rent dollar goes in the area.

Also, I've been told that certain areas of Riverwest are cheaper than other areas. I don't want to know your exact address, but could you also mention some close cross streets so I have an idea of price differences by the area?

One last thing- any areas and/or landlords to avoid? I've heard all sorts of advice, but nobody seems to agree on anything other than that some "Brophy" guy sucks hardcore.

Thanks!

moped [09 Jul 2008|03:55pm]

Hey everyone!
I am considering getting a little 50cc moped and it only goes about 32mph, it's an old one!  I am wondering if anyone here has any experience driving around on something similar, particularly in the Riverwest area!? Humboldt Blvd can get kinda crazy!  Thanks so much!

Free Rock/Recline Loveseat [21 May 2008|10:32pm]

jmpierce
I've also got an ad on craigslist, but I just wanted to get this out to as many potentially interested people as possible because I need to get rid of this soon!

Free loveseat, rocks and reclines! Both sides recline independently. There are some rips in the upholstery. Blanket to cover rips included. Very comfy and the rocking and reclining is really nice. The problem is that I live in a first floor apartment (as in, up one short flight of stairs) and it's very heavy due to the rocking and reclining action. You'll need at least two strong people to haul this out of my apartment. Free to anyone who will come and get it themself. I live in Milwaukee close to the UWM campus.

Please reply here or email jmpiercewriting @yahoo.com. Thanks!
