Help - Focus Needed

Unfortunately I feel as if I've lost my voice for writing for this particular blog. I want something more focused. Either being a "housewife" or an event planner. I need to focus on something...there is too much going on in this blog.

I need your help...what am I better at? 

If I had an event blog I could market myself. If I have a housewife blog I could be funny and personal things.

Weekday "Wine-ing"

See what I did there? If you don't...please leave. No, I'm kidding. Wine-ing = Whining. There. 

Not really going to whine about anything just a post to say that I have officially started binging on wine during the weekdays and not the weekends. Sigh. I'm such a grownup. 

Inevitably, this happens to us all. When you just can't quite make it to Fridays anymore. Your life is in a miserable state and if you don't acquire a self soothing alcoholic beverage stat you won't be a very happy co-worker/roomate/wife/classmate the next day. It's not like you go balls to the wall and end up naked on your front lawn (although the neighbours had quite a show last wednesday), no you have a glass or 2. Three, if you've had a really bad day. Make sure you drink an hour before bed if prone to heartburn. Wine heartburn can be a particularly nasty fiend on Wednesday mornings, when you are halfway through the week and near sweet sweet Friday Wine Time. 

Not saying my Friday nights are particularly party hearty either. I do have to say, getting drunk along with a mad men character during the show I missed on Sunday (because I went to bed early - my one smart decision this week) is quite a time! 

If that's a little too much for you Saturdays are usually watch a chick flick with my Mr. and cry a little into my wine glass because I didn't guess they'd both die/fall in love/he'd leave her. 

My Preciousssssssss. ps. this is pre-makeup & hair. Be nice. 

Well, off to class without making supper for my hunny because instead I wrote this. Aren't I a dear? 

Much love,

Little Sister Turns 19 & Happy Mommy Day

On May 10th my "little sister" turned 19. She is not so little anymore. 
She has been my one companion throughout my life that I can completely trust and love. Other than my Mommy, which I honoured today. 
I have so many strong women in my life, so it is no wonder my sister has become one of these women. She still has so much to learn, but she is a fast learner. 
We have been through a lot together and I am thankful I have had her to share that with. 

And today being mother's day I had a brunch with a lot of woman from my life and that made me happy and thankful.

Also, today being mother's day, as well as getting married soon, & all of my friends having them = I want a baby. There. I said it. 
I must wait till I have a career with maternity leave so I can have peace of mind. 

Much love,

Maxi Dresses = Love

I have a new unhealthy love for "maxi dresses". I don't know where it came from. I am not one to follow trends, I just try and buy things that work for my body. Maxi dresses tend to make me look pregnant, but this summer - I don't care. You can dress them down and you can dress them up. Who doesn't love that kind of flexibility?! Here are the 2 I have fallen victim 2 in the past 3 days! 

This was ordered from Mark. by Avon
This is from Giant Tiger! 10$, but in black.

I have no regret. I will be able to wear them to the beach, the lake, and entertaining guests at my house. I'm just so in love. Who knows how many more I will buy before summer is over? Probably not too many, wedding is coming up and money needs to be saved so I can get my hair did and my face prettified

Much love,

Purple Bling and Best Friend Surprises

I am currently in sweatpants and pretty darn happy with myself. I accomplished some small wedding tasks, movie watching, and generally lazing about this weekend. Mr. M left on Saturday morning for a little while. So my world will be weddings things and homework.

Here are a couple sneak peeks of a couple weeding related items...
Purple Bling.

Table seating organization. Not pretty, but SO helpful!

Probably the most stressful thing ever. 

I need to get a jackknife or something, scissors destroyed these.  
If anyone has any tips for cutting out moustaches please tell me immediately. I need help, ha ha. 
I am loving this. I am slowly developing a complete love of weddings. I seriously love doing mine BUT I have a wicked need to plan other people's, I think it would almost be easier as it's not so personal. 
I want to plan some weird and wacky, unique, or such weddings. 

Time is zipping by. 98 days till I thee wed!

In other news, my best friend V who has been gone for 2 years in Alberta is back! She surprised me on my doorstep on Thursday last week. Best day ever. She is also my Maid of Honor, so I'm also a bit selfishly glad I have her home, haha.

PS. Should I do a video blog? Everyone else seems to be, lol. 

Much love,

Wedding Invites

My wedding invitations were a lot of fun to make. Frustrating at times, but worth it. I saved a ton of money by doing them myself!

I bought a kit from Micheals, the craft store, and then proceeded to make a couple of adjustments to it to make it suit my wedding and style better. 

My mom and sister both did a lot to help! Great bonding time. 

I wish I could show you the finished product but they haven't gone out yet. You'll see soon!

On another note, my first wedding dress finally came in. Rushed home tried it on, and was happy to report I was not happy in it! I LOVE my second dress and this one is so blah compared to my new one. What was I thinking?! 

Much love,
