A Few Updates

My life has suddenly become so exciting, and yet so boring at the same time. Exciting because I have all this wedding stuff swimming around in my brain and it’s exciting to plan and organize and browse websites looking for ideas. It’s boring, because other than that- I fee like I have hardly anything else to discuss!! So… I’ll just give a tiny brief wedding update and then I’ll try to find something else to talk about 😉

  • We’re 95% set on the location- just need to figure out a few logistics, but hopefully we’ll know for sure by Wednesday
  • This means we’re also 95% sure on the date… if all goes well it will be 8.28.10
  • I decided on a color scheme and hopefully bridesmaids dresses as well
  • We’re pretty set on our guest list

Now on to other news…

This weekend was spectacular in terms of weather! Here’s what we did on Sunday:

021

 

Andrew, our friend Ben and I went down to Balmoral and had an impromptu picnic. It was such nice weather- we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to sit in the sun for a bit. The beach was packed and we didn’t feel like getting sandy so we sat on the grass and ate our little picnic lunch. Sinead met us down there as well and it was great to catch up. Not bad for a winter’s day!!

Lastly I decided to finally update my 101 list seeing as how I haven’t updated it in FOREVER. Here are a few things I’ve accomplished over the last few weeks:

#20- Get engaged… YAY!!

#11- Got 5 people to create a 101 list

Here are a few of them but I apologize that I cannot remember them all – Daisy , Laura, Natasha (no more blog ), Ruthann and there’s one more… someone please remind me who you are 🙂

#76- create a signature cocktail… remember my Grapelberry Fizz That counts, right?

#93- get renter’s insurance- FINALLY! Only took us nearly 2 years of living here!!

I’m well on my way with a few other tasks as well… so hopefully I should have a few more to cross off in the coming months!

    That all sounds wonderful. I cant wait to hear more details like what your colors will actually be! O’ how I love Weddings.
    And I had better be on that guest list because you better believe I will be there! Plus I dont consume any alcohol so I’d be a cheap guest.
    Congrats again, this is all so exciting! Cant wait till next August, it will be here before you know it. And you will go down in history as the most beautiful bride ever to walk down an isle.

      Aww Jill you are too sweet!! You are definitely invited and hopefully you will be able to make it out from CO! I’m sure Dave would disagree and think that YOU were the most beautiful bride ever 😉

    Are you getting married in Australia? I’ve been “working” on my 101 things list for months– I’m getting know where fast. I only have about 55 things.

    YAY!!! That is so fun!! I’m excited for you to keep us updated on all of the wedding plans.

    Oh and side note – oooh… I should prolly look at my 101 list – it’s been a few months. lol. Thanks for the reminder!!

    You got me to start a 101 list as well, probably without knowing it though. I haven’t finished it, but it’s good to look at the progress once in a while!

    Yea, def no blog any more! I’m just not a blogger, as hard I tried (which wasn’t very hard, to be fair). I have revisited the list a few times though… can’t say it’s going to ever be finished.

    Sloooow down on the planning, what are you going to do for the rest of the year once you have it all done?! 😉
