Busy, busy, busy

11 Mar

My title is so very original.

Anywho – hello gang! 🙂 GP and I have been hurrying around, trying to move from one house to another. We’ve ultimately decided to move into my parents’ house and we’ve been flat out moving things to and fro with the help of my dad’s ute. It’s been exhausting, but if I haven’t lost a great amount of weight after this, I’m gonna be pissed! (no, not really, but still – so much to-and-fro-ing and heavy lifting). GP and I have started a healthy-living regime, which means daily walks, copious amounts of water, and portion eating. We’ll be joining a gym soon enough 🙂

I’ve lost some weight (not enough that I’m happy, but it’s a slow, steady journey). GP’s lost HEAPS of weight, and I’m so proud of him (albeit a little bit jealous!).

As for wedding stuff, that’s currently on hold. Although exciting news might still be on the horizon with our photographers!

Wish us both luck! 🙂

It’s been a while…

9 Aug

Hello readers!

First off, I’d like to sincerely apologise for the long absence. It’s been pretty hectic here. University started… two weeks ago (I think) and work started last week for me. Add to this the in-laws coming (this Friday!), wedding planning and the fiance going back and forth between Sydney and Adelaide, and it’s been a whirlwind. I’ve been attempting to clean up the house (and not going too bad) as well as do my university work and pre-work work stuff.

So what have I also done in terms of wedding planning/ideas? Well:

  • I got a package in the mail. Will not divulge what said package is, but I was uber excited!
  • I’ve been trying to wear my shoes in so that they’re comfortable when it comes time for me to officially wear them. The outer edges of the leather are a little pinchy but overall, they are s-h-m-i-c-k~!
  • I’ve sketched out dress ideas for both myself and my bridesmaids. I’m super excited to send these off to the wonderful Mandy Heng who I’m communicating with to make my dresses (her shop is called Mandy Heng Designs – go there, you will not be disappointed).
  • I think I may have found the song. Will update once I’ve let GP hear it out…
  • We (my family, me, GP and two of my bridesmaids) went to an expo on Sunday. It was awesome. We got ideas. I got free stuff. YAY!
  • My dad had a heart-to-heart with me regarding the wedding. I got super emotional. It was then followed by him excitedly announcing that he had ideas for bombonieres (wedding favours). It was cute. AND he gave me ideas. GENIUS.
  • I’ve been compiling a list of MUST PLAY songs for the wedding. It’s getting longer by the day.
  • We’re FINALLY (finallyfinallyfinallyfinally) having the Sydney-based engagement party. It’s going to be small, inexpensive and intimate. BOOYEAH.
  • I’ve (finally) started (or should I say, re-started) my fitness regime. I am terribly unfit. BOO. Plus side, we’re finally starting Lite n Easy. YAY.

And that is all so far. I will update you, in detail, if/when I can. This weekend is going to be HECTIC.
