A Royal Wedding.

29 04 2011

Good morning everyone! It is 5 am here and of course I am up watching the Royal Wedding! Just a few more hours and William & Katie will be saying I do! It is truly a special event and a fairy tale wedding!

Speaking of weddings! Today my mom, aunt, and I are heading out to get some more stuff for my wedding! We are looking to get plates, napkins, cups, and all that good stuff! Yesterday I got treat myself to a facial and let me tell you it was amazing! It was a little over an hour-long and so relaxing, a perfect way to melt the wedding stress away!

Enjoy your day! Only 1 more hour until the wedding begins! 🙂 And only 57 until my fairy tale wedding.


Time is flying by!

Hey everyone! I have been one busy lady lately so I feel like I haven’t had much time to do anything! Last night Collin and I went to pick up our kitchen table. It has to be put together but it is adorable! By the way very shortly we will be moving into our apartment?! YIKES! 🙂

I don’t have any pictures up of anything yet, but hopefully soon! So yesterday was exactly 2 months until our wedding so that means its one day closer today, which is exactly 60 days! I am so beyond excited! It is finally almost here.  What made it seem even more realistic is that a package came in the mail, and it was for me! Guess what it was? A wedding present!! How fun! My aunt and uncle in Florida bought us luggage! I was very excited! By the way in about a month Collin and I have almost been engaged for a year! How crazy is that?

So here I am trying to keep sane and gettings things ready to move, planning a wedding, and trying to enjoy everything because it will be over before I know it! Thank you everyone for your ideas, support and just reading what I have to say! It has been one crazy ride! Enjoy your day! 🙂

Short & Sweet!

Happy Easter everyone I hope you all have an amazing day! It sure is beautiful here today! 🙂 This weekend Collin and I bought a kitchen table, an end table, and a coffee table! More on that later! Jesus has RISEN and He is ALIVE! 🙂

Easter is a hop around the corner!

Hey everyone! It is sweet Thursday, the day where a big sigh of relief comes because you know one more day of the work week! Well today me and my kiddos (not exactly mine but the children I babysit) decorated Easter eggs and boy was it fun! I really miss doing all these traditions we used to do as kids and stopped doing as we got older. Boo for getting old! They are sleeping right now and when they wake up an Easter egg hunt it is!

So tonight my aunt and I will be heading to the reception site to try to figure out a game plan of how everything will be set up. My aunt is in charge of all the decorating and the flowers, what an amazing women she is! 🙂 She is very creative and somehow can make all things work together.

Everything is literally falling all together. I am thanking God for providing us with all the big stuff, down to the littlest things! You are awesome! This is what Easter is really about our Saviour coming to the cross for our sins! This is some real stuff right here people! Enjoy our day the sun is out here, but the wind is crazy! Happy Easter! 🙂

A place to call home…for now ;)

Happy Monday everyone! I had to get up a tad bit earlier than usual but it left me with lots of motivation to start cleaning and doing laundry! Yay! Good news: Collin and I have found somewhere to live! The apartment should be ready for us to move in by May 1st! They are going to put new carpet and fix a few more things before we can move in.


It is so crazy that we will finally start having our own place to call home! 🙂 It has left me with a very challenging task though; trying to decorate and make an apartment look as cute and stylish as it can get!  I am thinking I might just have to take pictures of the process. Bring it on! Enjoy your day friends! Love you all ❤

So I have been trying to figure out how to post from my blackberry and I just did! Yahoo! So I am trying to figure out a few wedding details and want some in on some ideas or what you might have done :).

Transportation: all my bridesmaids and me will be getting ready at the ceremony site so I have been thinking on how will I get everyone (wedding party) from the ceremony site to the reception. What did you do if your ceremony and reception were at 2 different places? Is it worth renting a limo?

Seating Chart: Okay, so I have seen some adorable pictures of seating charts but I only need names for the immediate family tables. There are going to be like 6 round tables for immediate family and then the rest long rectangular tables for everyone else to sit where ever the would like! 🙂 So I’m trying to think of a creative way to have the immediate family tables numbered or with place cards. 🙂

Alrighty now is the time when you all hit the “comment” button and give me some ideas! 🙂 Love you all!

a sunny day!

Hello everyone! Nothing more on wedding updates but I can tell you some other things that have been going on! Yesterday I went for a walk with my cousin Amanda, and it was wonderful lots of up and down hill and we were totally feeling the burn! Today my friend Jaclyn (who also is a nanny) and I brought the kids to a playground in Peterborough it is like the best playground out of all the playgrounds! Also no one else was there so the whole playground was ours (for an hour and something). 🙂

So my mom asked me to make some macaroni salad this afternoon for dinner tonight so as the noodles finish cooking and the kids are eating lunch ( peanut butter and fluff with an apple and iced tea!) I would come on here and write-up a quick post! Tonight I am going to a jeans party, they bring all these designer jeans for you to try on and you can purchase and take them home that night so fingers crossed I find something (or a few) that I love! 🙂

I think that’s just about it for today! Only 72 days left until the BIG day! Yikes :). Enjoy your day my friends and show your beautiful smile to the world! 😀
