The last couple weeks have been a much personal stuff going on with my family and also fiance's family! Not to mention we are 45 days away from the wedding so we have switched our minds into another gear entirely.

In the past 2 weeks I have had my makeup trial, my hair trial, and tonight is my final dress fitting!! Talk about being pampered :)

My makeup trial went great! I'm not sure I thought I could be that beautiful...amazing what a few good products will do for a person! Fiance even loved it. The first words out of his mouth were "Holy Cow! You look 10 years younger!" At first I took that as a compliment, but the more I think about it, I wonder: Do I really look that bad to begin with?...LOL
Here is a pic of the makeup trial many hours afterwards and also taken with my iPhone so not the best quality. (Note: I had already removed my lipstick and taken the false eyelashes off)

My hair trial was next and to be honest...I had literally no idea how this was going to turn out. Granted, I love love love the girl doing my hair (love ya Morgan) and have full confidence in her, but my hair really isn't that cooperative and due to the nature of my haircut, my options are limited. But, as usual, Morgan is amazing and she was able to make me look gorgeous! We are opting out of using my headpiece and I didn't have my veil with me, but this is the general idea of what we are going for (just imagine the veil clipped into the back of my head)

(Note: the picture taken of me from the front angle did not turn out so you only get my sides and the back view)

My dress fitting is in a couple hours and I'm more than excited. I can't wait to have the dress on again. And this time to have it actually fit me! Well, lets hope it fits me...I've gained a few lbs the past couple weeks so I'm praying the dress will zip up!

Early Birthday Present

Tomorrow is my birthday so I took it upon myself to buy me a birthday present. I recently redecorated our living room/dining room and I've been looking for something to finish up our hallway and maybe add a little modern twist to the walls. My decor is very modern anyway, but it just felt like it was missing something.

As I was searching Etsy this weekend I came upon the most wonderful vinyl wall graphics. I purchased the following:

Half Tree with Birds by byrdiegraphics. This is going to look perfect in my hallway. I ordered it in black to put against my grey walls.

Flying Birds by Glass House Couture. I got these in yellow as my living room is grey walls and white furniture with yellow accents. Not sure exactly what I'm doing with these, but I couldn't pass them up.

I spent literally forever looking at all the vinyl wall decals. I could decorate the entire house....I think I have found my new addiction.

Have any of you used anything like this before and if so, how did you like them?

Facebook in Real Life

Saw this video today and it made me crack up laughing. Thought I would share it with the rest of you. It's a reminder how annoying facebook can really be!!

It's been raining since about 4am which makes me want to run out and buy some wellies.

It's storming here today....I wish I could have stayed in bed and listened to it a little bit longer.
