17 Days!

Ok so it's 17 days till Christmas and I still have 3 or 4 gifts to buy! I'm starting to freak out a little (will I have enough money etc.) My decorations are all up, tree looks nice, menu planned for Christmas Eve supper...I feel like I'm forgetting something but I have no idea what....

Is it too early?

I spent this weekend cleaning and putting up some of my Christmas decorations! I haven't put up my tree yet, Hubby thinks it's too early! Is it? I feel like this is always when we put up the decorations and the fake tree. Maybe it's hard for people to get in the mood now because we don't get snow until so late in the season. Tell me what you think.... Is it too early to think about putting up the Christmas decorations?

In case you haven't heard the wedding was beautiful, everything I always wanted!

I think I might have to change the name of my blog now...... maybe diary of a new bride!

Mike started his vacation today! Of course it's when we have no money! I probably won't be around much but any suggestions for free things to do in good old PEI would be nice!

Nate wanted to say Happy 21st to his awesome auntie Cari! Hope it was a great one!

Finished it!

I know it's not the best thing but I did it myself and my son loves it!

By the way Mom tagged me so here goes:

7 things that ROCK!

1. CSI (all three of them)

2. Arby's (I wish we still had one on PEI)

3. Summer (today is nice at least!)

4. Being a Mommy!

5. People who help you plan your wedding!

6. Crocs!

7. Origami (I love it, it's so relaxing!)

She finally did it!!

I don't know what kind of mind control device she implanted into my head but Mom finally made me knit something! I'm starting off simple with a straight knit dishcloth!

Oh the world is over!

That doesn't fit at all

Seen this on the way to the fireworks on Canada Day, thought it was funny!

Real Food Please!

Ok I know I just started the stupid thing but, how are you supposed to stay on it if the food taste gross?
Well anyway today I am taking the boy with me to Nanna's and hopefully she'll feed me!!

Has anyone ever tried it? Had any success? I just started today and I'm already thinking of quitting! It's hard and I'm hungry!!

Am I really a bridezilla???

I wonder if I am? Anyway, I'm getting ready for my wedding, which is taking place in my soon to be in-laws backyard on August 25! Today I started the slimfast diet, I have my dress but I just want it to fit better nothing drastic!

So far we have the invitations mailed, the favours made, the autograph mat bought (my guestbook) my dress and shoes, my son Nathaniel's outfit (pants) (shirt) bought and I know we have more but I can't think of them just now!

My dress

I have a blog!!

My Mother (knittingnanna) would be so proud!
I started this blog so that I coulde have a place to share my thoughts about being a bride!
