Katie Gaga!

This is awesome. I just thought it was something pinned to her head. Of course Lady G's isn't real hair.
Go on try it. Could you imagine walking down the isle wearing a big ol hair bow? NO!

My Best Friend's Wedding

Oh, so us.
I flew from London to Vegas last year to be at her wedding. Worst flight ever but it was worth it!
Now it's my turn!
I hope she can be there. She's trying for a baby so she might have to be there in spirit or spit-up.

I finally watched Sex & the City - the movie.
First time watching any Sex & the City!
I would have preferred to watch it without PARENTS but ohhh how I should have guessed from the title it might get a little awkward.
I will admit that it was fun to look at all the clothes and expensive girly things. Kinda like how I love watching the makeover scenes in Clueless and the part in The Devil Wears Prada when she's transforming into a city girl. We love that kinda stuff, right?
BUT I was sitting next to my man when she got stood up at her own wedding!

That night after the movie I was like "Burrrb...?(our weird nicknames for each other) I'm not going on about wedding stuff too much am I?" ect...
He laughed and knew it was because of the movie...he said no of course and reassured me but I did start to take it easy after that with wedding talk.
I'm not spending any amount close to what Carrie Bradshaw (oh my god I remembered the name) was spending on her wedding. And we're talking about it together most of the time because everyone I'm close to is an ocean away! So he gets to hear about everything...that poor guy.

Anyway it was just sucky to watch that part. He did end up proposing again with a shoe in the end, OF COURSE!
How old is that movie? I need to get with the times.
Has the show been running for like 10 years? I didn't realise those girls were 40+

Alright It's sunny out. I should go outside...or atleast open some windows and make it seem like I am!!


Hello again! We had a nice weekend in Bristol visiting Ryan's parents.
Lots of wedding talk and some shopping.
It was nice to get away from the e-world for a few days.

We're planning a trip back in September before I fly back to Florida.
There's a Wedding Fair thingie goin on - woo! It'll be my first one. How are those things?

I've been looking at these pictures a lot lately for centerpiece inspiration. I think I've gone twig crazy. I love it.

Also, it was my Dad's birthday yesterdayyy!! Miss him. Happy Birthday - again!

Fruit at weddings

Y'know when you see weddings with lemons, pears, apples and cherries?
I was thinking maybe a few plums. We happen to love em and they're closer to our color scheme. 
Not really sure how I feel about it yet.


Last Summer

Here's a (horrible quality) video I made last year with clips from my summer!

This entry was inspired by a for me, for you visual movie post.
These are some of my favorite wedding scenes from movies. I was kinda bummed I couldn't find some I really like, such as Robin Hood & Maid Marian!
Here are the scenes I did find...

Ryan helped a little with the Godfather.
These are all awesome movies though. Mawwaige!
And Father of the Bride...that look on her dads poor Dad!

Beads, feathers and pearls - oh my!

Madison Michel Paris - prettty! Bead bangs! Too bad my head is tiny and those things never fit me.
I might start making some myself.

Check out the lovely because im addicted blog post I found these on.

I, I, I, I, me, me, me, me

I dyed my hair the wrong color. I'm usually pretty good at not messing that up - not this time!
I've had the WORST sleep tonight.
I hardly ever see 7am, unless we're taking a trip somewhere.
I can't really stop thinking about wedding stuff.
How in the world am I going to sleep when it's closer to the date????
How do you seperate yourself when it's time to turn off and go to bed?
I also think my ring is lost in the mail when it hasnt even been 4 weeks (like I was told it might be.)
I think it might be time for a little e-break.

It's my blog and I can whine if I want to...whine if I want to.

Can't handle it!

What's missing? I want my ring!
Yes, I have really long and skinny fingers. Most people that notice are just freaked out by them. (aw)
 To me they look pretty sausagie in the photo but my ring size is officially a G 1/2 (US 3ish)
 Soo anyone need a hand model? That would be fun.
When I was little my family would make me hold up plates and things.
Back to me whining about my ring...yeah, SEND IT L.A.!

Pointless Purchase??

I like to buy things just incase I don't get the chance to buy them again, a lot.
So when I saw these little tag things I had to get enough to use them in the Ryan & Katie Extravaaaganzaaa (wedding).
Some are bigger than others and some are more transparent than others.
Now I can't really figure out what I want to do with them.

I could use them as little tags for the favors but I wanted those cute pick & mix candy bar tables.

Any ideas?

I've been a No Doubt fan since I was around 10 or something.
I remember dancing to it with my brother in California on our summer breaks.
I kind of turned into a Gwenaholic. Posting pictures on my walls and dying the tips of my hair magenta!
My prom hair was inspired by her big poof-do's she'd wear on red carpets.
My bff is a bigger fan than I am which is awesome because I can get all retarded about it with her.
She had named kitties after Gwen, bought the bags and millions of tickets, swiped their set list paper (complete with footprint) and has many custom license plates.
I grew out of it (mostly) but today I've been No Doubting it up!
Here are a few of my favorite videos...

I also totally think Gwen Stefani looks like Joan Crawford.




I've probably spent too much time on this!!!

Quick trip to London!

My pretty ring should be here in a few weeks!
I got to try on a similar ring without the bling and it was perfect (still went with the bling though).
If you're ever around the Covent Gardens Market in London you should totally visit the Kabrini  store.

We had a good day. It didn't rain much until we got to the zoo. We just hid in the aquarium until it stopped.

I was also the closest I've EVER been to a tiger.
A sleeping tiger.

I was too busy falling in love with the Gorillas so I don't have any real pictures.

We napped in the park...

And stopped immediatly for pizza and watched MJ do his thang on tv.

We had a good trip but not enough pictures.
Ryan says it's a good thing because I enjoyed it more. It's nice though ya know, instead of snapping away all day.
I'm so happy we ordered my ring and had a nice trip together. Thank you, Burburrrr!

London Calling

So I wrote a few posts ago that we're going to London in a couple days.
Here are some pictures of our London trip last year. We had a nice trip but our feet were killing us at the end of the day.
I was almost in tears walking/limping home from the train station at 1am while trying to get Ryan to play I SPY!

I took hundreds of photos.
I hope it doesn't rain!!
I looked and it's pouring rain there today but when we go it should be a little sunny.

Also - really excited to get a package from my Dad in the next few days.
I ordered a bunch of cheap but hopefully really nice makeup a couple of months ago and shipped it to Florida thinking I could wait until September to play with it but noooo. Please please come before I go to London. (probably won't).
