So, there are just 112 days to go until our wedding and I’ve just spent a couple of hours getting on top of our wedding budget. We had set one out a while ago and we’ve been saving hard and spending bit by bit but I hadn’t actually sat down and set it all out in an all singing, all dancing spreadsheet. I have to do accounts as part of my job so I’ve been putting the wedding spreadsheet off for ages! It’s the last thing I want to do after a day at work!!

I feel quite satisfied that the spreadsheet worked out and didn’t result in any scary surprises. We seem to be on target with bringing the money in but we have overspent on some things and I fear that we have under budgeted on other things. I’m not sure whether we will get cars and a band for the budget we have set, but hey, that’s part of the fun!

We have met some fabulous suppliers and deposits have been paid to secure them for our big day. Don’t underestimate how helpful they can be! If it wasn’t for the wonderful ladies of Ava Event Styling, I probably wouldn’t have a clue about how the day would actually look! Now, I can stop stressing about colours, table decorations, flowers and cakes as I know it is all in good hands and I am so excited to see what they come up with!

I was nearly there with the bridesmaid dresses and about to make the purchase when my best bud announced she was pregnant! Obviously, I’m thrilled, but it has made me reconsider the dress purchase. She will be 7 months pregnant on the wedding day so I need to wait a little while longer to see how big she will be! So, the decision on the dresses is still to be made…!

So, thankfully all is on track with very little stress, well….apart from the venue issue. But that’s for another post!!!

I was feeling inspired to write after finally having a quiet half an hour to catch up on some blogs and I realised that I haven’t written anything since March! So, I thought that it might be best to start by catching up on April.

April is my favourite month of the year. Firstly, it’s Easter and that means lots of chocolate and secondly, it’s my birthday month. Enough said.

Some big things happened in April:

  • I turned 31 (eek)
  • We finally painted the kitchen and lounge after living in our house for over a year
  • We paid deposits for the cake, flowers & decorations
  • We paid deposits for the wedding stationery
  • We paid deposits for make up
  • We adopted a PUPPY!

Being a bride to be, I should be sharing all of the details of the wedding related achievements but that’ll have to wait because if you adopt a puppy, your whole energy and focus is on him!

His name is Oscar and he’s a cross Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Bischon. This means he’s very cute. He’s got a lot of character and a lot of energy!

Meet Oscar.

Isn’t he gorgeous?

Cor blimey, is anyone else having a mega busy December? It’s only the 6th and it’s so hectic! I’ve got something on every night this week as well as work in the day where I have a huge case load to deal with! Still, I am much better when I’m busy. I don’t know about you but I’m one of those lazy people. If I don’t have clients ringing me constantly or bosses asking me to do stuff when I’m already busy, I tend to be a bit slow at everything! Slower to get out of bed, I take longer to get ready and it takes me a couple of hours to really get going when I’m in the office. Procrastination is my middle name! But when I’m busy, I get things DONE!

Unfortunately, it does mean that the things I’m getting done are all work related. Which is fine because I need to get it done otherwise I wake up in the middle of the night thinking of files and that’s just….tiring!

Wedding planning is on hold a little at the moment. I have had some ideas for flowers, things to hire for my table centres and my cake. I’m just trying to decide what I want to do. The bridesmaids and I are all meeting on the first weekend of February to have a day out shopping for dresses. Hopefully I’ll be able to finalise the colours in my mind then so I can get on with planning my wedding stationery! I can’t believe that it’ll only be 6 months to the big day then! We’ve got a wonderfully talented friend who will be designing our stationery and I just can’t wait to see her ideas!!

I met up with old friends last weekend and whilst we were all sat around the dinner table, someone mentioned that this time next year, we’d all be married! What an idea! I’ll be able to call G my husband and I just can’t wait!

I think 2012 will be a good year. I can feel it in my bones!

Happy December. Don’t work too hard. ‘Tis the season to be jolly, after all!

ps Here’s our Tree – we’ve been collecting special baubles over the years. I like each bauble to be different and to hold a special memory for us!
