100 Days to Go!

100 Days from today I will be getting MARRIED!
I am soo very excited and anxious and unbelieavably happy.
I am enjoying taking care of all little details....
like placecards, favor making, music selections, choosing our vows and readings.
Plus its a relief that all the really big stuff is all taking care off.
I know the next 100 days are going to fly by with showers, a bachelorette, shopping, planning and preparation.
I will be savoring it all, every moment.
I can't wait to share the celebration of our love with friends and family!

Home Sweet Home

This post is inspired by m. and highlights some of my favourite places in my home
the little spots and things that make me happy and life simple.

Ahh.....the kitchen! Love it, all of it and this is just a little snapshot. There is a huge island with counter and cupboard space and it makes cooking very enjoyable and easy!

My fridge makes me happy because of all the pictures of the kids that are so important in our lives, our pets and some of us and my trip to Australia.

This table is about 3 times the size in the picture and it when you walk in the side door(main one we use). It is our bowl-l! We have our keys, phones and charges all in one spot so its organized and convient. This table also has doors where we keep CD's, phone book, mail etc.

Little reading nook. This is a comfy spot that faces away from the TV and is enjoying to sit and chat/read/blog in.

From my home to yours

Girl Time

I have fallen into a somewhat mundane routine. Nothing exciting but still enjoyable. I work, go to the gym, cook, clean and lots of wedding planning (which is the exciting).
I find myself missing my girlfriends....
going for coffee, having long chats, shopping, complaining about our men, enjoying a drink or two or a full blown Girls Night out!

I'm so excited for my Bachelorette Party because its like the ultimate Girls Night out!
I will be going to another city next weekend to visit some fabulous ladies for a wine and cheese!
It's going to be great to catch up and relax with these ladies, maybe get a little crazy later in the evening.
I also love Girls Night In, probrably even more so and want to have some quality time with v. who lives in another province, hopefully soon!
This weekend I will be having an all girls Saturday starting with lunch, then shoe shopping and wedding errands.
Then in the evening two of my fav ladies and I will be doing some crafty work to put some things together for the wedding and then relax with some pedis.
Here's to you, girlfriends! Thanks for always being there for me, being supportive and caring. Willing to listen without judgment and offer advice when needed.
For making me a better person.

Happy New Year!

This is a bit late but better than never, Happy New Year

Christmas was wonderful, we successful hosting our 1st Christmas dinner and it was delicious. We had the whole family over and enjoy the merry season.
New Years Eve we celebrated our friends wedding.
I woke up on New Years Day and my love rolled over and smiled, saying...
"Happy New Year babe, this is our year!"
And that it is :)
This is the year we are getting married and I know that 2011 is going to be a great year!
