Such an exciting time around here at the moment. Two of my best friends are getting married next year and its weddings a go go! And I love it!
Its making me all teary eyed watching strangers wedding video's and all that fun stuff. Seriously. Crazy stuff. Hey if you put your wedding on U tube - people will watch.
Anywho. When it came to my own wedding planning I found it hard to find direction. There were so many options. What was better? What would suit the venue? Would people like a chocolate fondant - well who doesn't? Should I buy silver shoes. Should I keep looking for shoes?... the list went on and I was second guessing every decision and quietly freaking out. Sometimes not so quietly. I didn't know if I was coming or going.
I have been chatting this week to the above mentioned brides and I am so impressed that they know what the want and are confident in their decisions. Well done friends. Sensible friends I clearly have. Says alot about a blogger really.
So happy wedding planning.
May you be strong, consume champagne and know your own mind. As I seemed to loose mine somewhere in a shoe shop...
And if someone decides to wear this dress I will cry. Beautiful gown by Manuel Mota from pronovias.
Just a little update on my road to well being. Insert enya gag here. I am loving the acupuncture. I had my second visit today and was not sure how I would go seeing as I haven't been feeling so crash hot lately and now my wisdom teeth are ready to be set free. (Next Tuesday yikes!)
And yes I am totally channelling Charlotte from Sex and the City. And I'm ok with how shallow that is.
But it turns out that acupuncture can sometimes bring to a head any underlying problems that may be bubbling under the surface. For example my wisdom teeth are due to be taken out but me being a chicken I have put it off. Had acupuncture last week and bam they started hurting. All that energy floating around my body trying to expel toxins. Maybe. So last week my whole body felt like it was shutting down. Bit by bit and yesterday it felt like it was being held together by a thread.
I had acupuncture this morning and had another light bulb moment with my dr and it all makes perfect sense. All this from looking at peoples tongues and some needles.
And today I totally rocked the correct outfit for acupuncture. Not that it matters too much, but last week I wasn't really prepared for stripping in front of a stranger.
I'm married now and there were no cocktails ;)
Here is an interesting make up tutorial on how to create a look like Charlotte, if you are at all interested.
Image from we heart it. IE not my legs on a beach.....
Sydney has sweltered with 40 plus degrees this weekend and I have been one. hot. mess. I don't do hot weather.
That's one of the reasons I moved to the country. Cold weather. Cooler climate. All that good stuff. But here we are back in the big smoke sweating it up.
Three cold showers + a day, check. Take the dog to work for air conditioning comfort, check. Ice blocks for dinner, check. I am thanking a higher power for the cool change that rolled in this afternoon. Universe you heard my prayer.
I realised this weekend that its been ten years since I "swam" in the ocean. Crazy huh! Again. Not to fond of large waves and sweltering beaches. Hot sand. I don't think so. I know this post is dramatic. Yes I do. But I don't cope with heat. Ok?
In other news I am embarking on the 2011 stress free your mind plan. It may involve some acupuncture. And I just love needles. I'm also upping the exercise. And I may have to go back on the chocolate detox. Last week was a big fail in that department. Oh And I did 6 loads of washing today. Only a backlog of two days, for two people and a small dog. I blame the small dog. How many summer outfits can you wear in one day. Just sayin'.
Hope you had a cool weekend. Preferably somewhere snowy and delightful.x
I got asked yesterday if I had changed my maiden name. Yes I have but not "legally."
IE I've changed it on my drivers license and my bank account and on facebook... But not technically with the Australian government. So I should probably do that. Its all rather a pi lava really. Forms and Id and yaddayaddayadaa. I'd rather get my nails done and pretend I've done it. Or I can get this company to do it.
I'm a Mrs. They do all that tricky stuff with 100 points of ID and what not. For a small fee and Bob's your uncle. Or Dave's your husband.
