Oh boy....

have I been busy. It seems like I have been just non stop on the go lately. With planning for a wedding as well as a baby, time just seems to fly by. I can't believe it is only just over a month before my wedding, eeeep!!!! I am getting so nervous and excited! There is so much last minute stuff that has to get done and organised that couldn't be done before. I think every weekend now up until the wedding Alex and I will be busy doing all this last minute stuff. We are doing well though and everything has been going to plan so far.

We have planned our hens and bucks parties and I am so looking forward to mine. My hens group and I will be going out for a lovely lunch and then doing a 2 hour life drawing class, YAY! I have always wanted to do one and nowadays they do them for hens parties which I thought was a great idea! I am sure we will all have a blast. Alex will be doing the usual guy thing for his bucks party. They will be doing paintball in the morning for a couple of hours and then going out for a steak dinner and drinks that night. No strippers though, lol.

I wish I was taking more photos of this whole wedding planning process, but I never remember to get my camera out. Especially with this pregnancy brain of mine at the moment I am so scared I am going to forget something important and mess everything up. I am carrying a notebook with me everywhere at the moment and constantly taking notes and making lists so I won't forget. I always thought that part of pregnancy was a myth, but I have recently realised it's definitely not!

On the baby note, everything is going really well. My belly is getting bigger and I can feel her moving and kicking all the time now. I love it! It's like I'm never alone, I always have my precious little baby with me. Hopefully on the next post I will have a few pics to share with you.

2 months till my Wedding Day!

Eeeeeeeep!!!! I am definitely starting to freak out a little. I have already been having nightmares about almost everything going wrong in the wedding. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night out of breath and covered in sweat. I think my problem stems from being a scary perfectionist and a crazy organising freak! I just can't help myself, lol.

When I went into this whole wedding venture I really thought planning a wedding would be easy and fun, but boy was I completely wrong! There is just so much to do and plan. Alex and I are also working on a tight budget so we are doing a lot of stuff ourselves from scratch. I am very lucky to also have a great family who is willing to step in and lend a big hand. I don't know what I would do without them.

Since the weather has been so lovely and it is starting to warm up again, Alex and I decided that we needed to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air and nature this weekend. My Mum and brothers had the same idea so we decided to make it a family venture. We took a picnic lunch out to the country and sat in the sun all day long lapping up the tranquility of the countryside. The place we stopped at has a running creek just beside it so we also spent a lot of time down there playing in the cool, fresh water. We all had a great day and can't wait to do it again soon. It was just what I needed to de-stress and relax.


This is the creek by the place we picnicked at

My brother Beau took this photo of Alex and I sharing some cuddles in the creek together

and I couldn't resist throwing in this pic of me and my growing baby belly

Hope everyone else had a great weekend :)
