Bloggy, bloggy, bloggy

Hi guys!

A few weeks ago I signed up to a wedding blog, Weddingbee. It’s a good community of people, and the bloggers are all named after specific monikers (for example, there’s Mrs Funnel Cake, Mrs Panda, Miss Filly, Miss Bicycle) and they all talk about their ideas, inspirations, trials, and tribulations of their wedding planning. Some of the information is insightful, some inspiring, and some just plain fun to read.

Would-be bloggers sign up for Weddingbee at least 8 months before their wedding, so readers are taken through the wedding planning process as the blogger plans. Now I’ve been blogging my wedding for some time and after coming across Weddingbee, I decided to give it a crack in June! …I didn’t get in. Another month later, I gave it another crack. Once again, denied! Third time lucky maybe? Nope, de…wait-for-it…nied!

So, should I go for a fourth time around? I know it’s not hugely important to some, but writing is my passion (I’m writing a thesis, I write fiction) and I really wanted to contribute with my own wedding planning process.

I waited for a little bit and mulled over the decision. I looked at how I wrote my posts, the voice I was trying to get through, and decided, after some much-needed advice and my own ‘change-of-process’, that I needed to change how I wrote. I made my posts more insightful, less blabby (I have a tendency to go on a tangent), and  filled with more personality.

And then I went for it.

Well guys, I got in! I’ve written up an introduction post, which I can link back later, but I’m uber excited to be contributing to this great community. I believe most of the posts that’ll be up on Weddingbee will be my older posts (as, you know, I’ve been blogging for awhile now), but it’s super exciting to be sharing this wedding-thang with others.

My moniker will be Miss Bighorn Sheep. For those of you who know us as a couple, it’s pretty self-explanatory as to why I chose it. For others who don’t really know us, GP is a Kiwi. 😉 I’ll be referring to myself as either Miss Bighorn or Miss Big, but we’ll see what happens when I keep blogging.

I’m super excited! Wish me luck guys!

So, like, whaddup people?

Yeahhhhh…

I know. I’m a slacker. I should post more on here, be more diligent, but I’ve honestly run out of things to say. I can now say that I finally have all the accessories I need. I said in my last post that my momma offered to let me borrow her silver necklace, which is absolutely gorgeous. I don’t currently have a picture of it, but it’s basically a v-shaped necklace which sits just about the collar bone. Also mentioned in the last post, I managed to find a pair of earrings and a hair comb to match said necklace.

All I was missing was a bracelet.

So the other day, while out and about with the family, I went and bought a bracelet.

It’s gorgeous and absolutely fits with the necklace.

I’m so excited to finally have my ensemble picked out and ready to go!!

In other news, I’ve been following the bloggers here: http://www.weddingbee.com/

These guys are dedicated – unlike yours truly – and they’re posts are enlightening, funny, inspirational, and full of heaps of wedding hints and tips. I want to join, since they’re currently taking in people whose wedding is in January 2014, but you have to dedicate to blogging 3-4 times a week. I love writing, I do, but… I am a lazy mofo. It does give me more stuff to do, I guess, but… we’ll see. I’ll have a look at the submission guidelines before I actually commit to this…
