As I’m typing this, I can barely feel my fingers…

24 Jun

It is well and truly winter here in Sydney…

So, how the HECK am I going to feel in Christchurch!?

My hands are freezing!! I know for a fact it gets much colder over there.

I’m looking forward to it otherwise. 🙂 We’re getting closer and closer to the e-session and I’m SUPER excited! So is GP! We’ve been thinking about what to do there and we’re left scratching our heads. GP suggested the Antarctic Centre, which would be awesome since we’ve… well I’ve… never been there. And also, GP loves penguins 😀

Thing is, that means we won’t be doing the “co-op of a lifetime” idea. Logistically, it was going to be pretty hard, but I love the idea and am pretty bummed we can’t do it.

Talking about gaming, we’ve officially ordered our first “DIY’ project. I know – how can you ‘order’ a DIY project? Simple really – make it in Photoshop, put it in Vistaprint, and then get them to print it, hahah! I had a coupon for $20 off the cart price, so my order went from $40 to $20, YAYYYYY!

Pretty much how I felt. (Image (c) http://gifstumblr.com/)

When it comes in, I’ll have to cut it to size and then alter it with the blackboard paint. Then we officially have a writeable Xbox sign!! More on that later, promise.

In other news, this Wednesday I’ll be shopping with Mandy! Which means I’m one step closer to getting my dress. DOUBLE YAY!

Cue Disney gif!

 

Anyway… this post was pointless. I just though I’d give you guys an update.

EXCITING NEWS R GO!

11 Mar

Hey guys!

I have some very exciting news!

We’ve (unofficially) decided to have the engagement session photo shoot in Christchurch, New Zealand – GP’s homeland! 😀 It wasn’t planned at all, honestly, but it came up in conversation when I was chatting with one of our photographers. We originally were thinking of going to Cockatoo Island for the e-session, a little island in Sydney harbour, and had originally intended on having it in August. When I mentioned in passing that we would be in New Zealand in July, we got this reply back:

We’re also heading to NZ in early July – when are you going and where? We fly into Christchurch I think on the 14th! Would you like to do the shoot there if we’re in the same place at the same time? Haha!

I can honestly say my hands were trembling. I quickly called GP to ask if we would be able to (and was met with voicemail; he was in a meeting at work) and then waited anxiously for his reply. I tried to be realistic about it – we might not be in Chch during the same time as them, Grant might not like the idea, etc – but then he replied.

He was as keen as I was.

WOOT!

After back-and-forth emails with our photographer, we’ve almost settled on it. We’re waiting on the confirmation and GP and I are trying to think of places in Chch that would be a nice backdrop for the shoot.

All in all, we’ll be having a photo shoot in Christchurch! YAY!

Another thing to note – we’ve seen our florist (who is just so very awesome) AND we’ve talked reception with our reception coordinator. GP and I are very happy with what is happening on the wedding front and I’ll be sure to share more with you guys later!!

For now, I need to just zone out. I’ve been studying for 7 hours and my brain has decided it doesn’t want to focus anymore.
