All good things must come to an end.....

but.... sometimes things just get better.   I will no longer be posting on this blog.  As I mentioned in my previous post my sister and I started a new one.  I feel that this new blog is more "me" if that makes any sense.... I feel like I have outgrown this one.  So if you'd like to check out my new blog click here STYLE ME

A few of my favourite things....

So not the best picture I will admit it.... but better than nothing right? yup...yup...

This summer has been full of some many changes, most of these changes are awesome... I got married... went on an amazing honeymoon to Iceland, moved, turned 27 (ah 30 is so close, weird and I still feel like I am 16 just with a ton more responsibility).

The one thing that has not change is my quest for the perfect shorts. And this summer I found 4 pairs! YES!

Sweater: H&M, $30
Necklace: thrifted, ??
Shorts: J.Crew, $34
Sandals: Old Navy $10 (last summer)

These are one of my favourite pairs (shhh don't tell the others). They are light, and so comfy but the are also in my opinion chic. Just right for all that Sundays entail... and running after my 4 year old.

Hey Hey Hey, long time no talk (or write, I guess in this case).

So I thought that I'd do something that I like reading on other people's blogs.... slightly unoriginal but hey it's all good :)

So here are my INS and OUTS for this week.

*the bright sunny weather that we have been having the last 3 or 4 days!! Amazing! Spring has taken awhile to come, but fingers crossed it might finally be here.
*getting tons of wedding list items checked off!! Only a few more weeks.
*The nail polish I am currently! It's China Glazes Strawberry Fields.... so bright and sunny feeling.
*black skinny jeans.... so comfy and so cute. Not too dressy but feels more dressy than blue jeans.
*Body Flow and Body Pump (two classes that I take at my local Goodlife)..... so amazing, they have transformed my body. And they are both really enjoyable :)

*it's supposed to rain for the next 5 days :( so sad....
*wedding stress... it's not that bad... but my head feels like it's spinning some times with all the extra little things.... that is where Body flow comes in (it's a combo of yoga, pilates)
*hmmm, I think that's it! YAY! more ins than outs, that's awesome!

Have a stellar Thursday!!

AHHH ok... I have not forgotten about you.....

I just feel that I have nothing to write about.... hmmm... I probably have more than I think. I haven't been taking outfit photos... and I would like to. Fingers crossed I can find time to do it. I have to be more disciplined... yes this is true, in more areas than just taking outfit photos... or even writing a post.
ok so lets get you up to speed on what's being happening around here....

*wedding planning.... my dress is bought (oooo.... so not what I had in mind but I LOVE it).
*reading wedding blogs... here are two of my favourite (you know just in case you too are in this planning stage...yay!) Style Me Pretty and Ruffled.
*working part time (blah, but it pays the bills and so therefore completely important).
*being a full time mama..... my little bean (that's been his nickname since before he was born) is almost 4 can't believe how fast time flies.
*doing other stuff that needs to get done before the wedding.... booking the honeymoon (look out Iceland here we come!!), premarital counseling, taking the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University class etc...
*trying to figure out colours for the cabinets and flooring and what not for the house (my mind simply can't grasp this at the moment... I am the type of person that need to be in the room, and since the house isn't built yet... well that just isn't possible).

So you know when someone is pregnant they have baby brain, well I am pretty sure that this never really goes away... so mix the leftover baby brain with Wedding brain and you get me. My mind is everywhere and nowhere at the same time. I am pretty sure I've been caught talking to myself a few times at work... and the grocery store and.... let's face it, well probably everywhere.

So I guess I had more to say than I thought.
til the next time...... hopefully it is sooner rather than later... and hopefully there are some photos. Again fingers crossed.
