TWO Weeks!

Two weeks...fourteen days...lots of excitement...MY WEDDING.

I feel that this time should be more stressful, but it isn't. That part's over, done with, thrown out the door. Time to relax, sniff the air, smile a lot and enjoy the last moments of engagement bliss.

Although...I've heard things somehow sneek up on you right before the wedding, but I can't even think about what those things might be yet. All the big items are finally finalized. And I finally found a creative, insightful florist who I have a lot of confidence in, and who can meet my budget :)

I'm all happiness right now.

I'm a winner

How many beautiful, fantastic and unique contests and free give aways there are online. How often I enter through a comment or a suggestion box...and am turned down. Most would probably say - a waste of time. In fact, I've never won a contest online.

Until NOW.

Thank you, Lisa Leonard Designs! Through your give away on Once Wed I have finally won a contest. So many beautiful handmade, sterling silver goodies to choose from. And I get to actually customize one :)

When it rains, it pours

Yes, you know the saying. We all know the saying. Once in a while when something dramatic, intense or stressful is going on in our lives, things don't get easier...they get harder. Or take longer. Or get more stressful. Such is life, right?

Well, such is my life lately anyways. As future posts have hinted at (okay, more like pounded you over the head with), I'm getting married. And, if you have been able to estimate when this is happening due to the timing of posts and when things such as engagement, photos, etc. have happened, you know D and my marriage is coming up quite quickly.

And if you've clued into other posts, such as ones about our painting and remodeling projects, you know we recently bought a house that happily consumed our lives.

That's enough to keep life sparkin' for a few months; definitely enough to keep us excited, stressful, dangerous and hysterical at times. For examples of dangerous look up axes, flames, ladders, or heavy refridgerators.

But what about the rest of our every day occurences that tend to increase life's excitement at all the wrong moments? Or maybe the right one's disguised as bad ones. This little downpour rides in with stripes, high endurance, four wheels and a lot of character...

Or at least I hope so. I've been car hunting for a few weeks now (dreaming for years) since my little Neon carpooped and no longer can travel with me. You've been a good little vehicle for a long long while, but I'm moving on to better, brighter, smaller things. Anyone own a Mini yet? Please tell me nice things because my heart probably can't be swayed anyways.
