One of my must have read blogs is The Brides Cafe. This blog is filled with great ideas, and most of all real weddings! I love all the different styles, photographers, you name it, I have it saved on my computer! So today I was browsing and saw this super neat idea! A Snap Station! This would be an alternative to having a photo booth! Check out the post: DYI Snap Station

Yucky Monday!

What is it about Monday's that make feel this way:

Happy Monday!!!!

Tweet Tweet!

Come follow me on Twitter!


I am still debating on colors for the wedding. My latest obsession is the color white. The color itself is a pure, romantic, color, that can be matched with almost any other color. Check out some of my findings:

Weekend Recap!

This weekend was a good one! Lover and I started on Friday with a trip to IKEA! The happiest place in the world! We ended up getting a couple things. I will post pictures of our latest grabs sometime this week!

We also got together for dinner at Chilis for some good food, and margaritas with some friends. Plus, we went to a Luah party on Saturday night..All in all it was an eventful weekend! Little by little things are all coming together..

Hope everyone has a great week!!

Too see or not?

My latest task has been looking for a photographer. It's been one of my hardest challenges! I have narrowed it down, and just need a week or so to just number crunch! In the end of the day, I need to stick with my budget. So with that thought, I started thinking about the day of the wedding.

The day of the wedding, sunset will be at 6:29 pm. Meaning it will be dark. Now the question arises whether I want to take formal pictures with Lover before or after the ceremony. Question is whether or not I want to throw tradition out the window? I've always wanted to walk down the aisle, and have Lover look at me for the 1st time, but then again, why? Why not see each other before the ceremony. Not only will we have taken out formal pictures, but it gives us a moment together.

Decisions Decisions...

What do you guys think? Married ladies, what did you do for your wedding?

Fruity surprise!

Yesterday we received a yummy surprise! My aunt sent us a Edible Arrangement. It looked delicious! This morning my sister and I decided to have fruitful breakfast! Which included coffee, Go Lean blueberry waffles, and some fruit! Yummy! My mouth is still watering from this morning's breakfast :)

New week!

Today is the start of a new week! Healthy lifestyle here I come! Like I posted last week, I started a new journey mid last week. I officially start weighing myself today. I will be doing so every Monday (just makes it easier to keep track.) I will be dedicating more time "cooking" my own meals, which should be interesting. I also will be hitting up the gym everyday, and maybe getting back to spinning!

You might ask, why the sudden healthy mode? I have (3) reasons...

1. An upcoming cruise (September 17th)
2. My wedding! (7 months away)
3. A healthier lifestyle!

Today the day has started off on a great note! I had a healthy breakfast, tons of water, andlots of work ahead of me! Staying busy is key! Later this afternoon, I will be hitting up the gym for am much needed workout! Can't wait!

I am looking forward for this weekend! I am hoping to hit the beach tomorrow, celebrate my mother's birthday at a great restaurant on Lincoln Rd. called Tiramisu, and of course seeing Lover! He comes back home from his week getaway! Can't wait to see him, and and his new shaved head! Yes, he decided to be daring, and adventurous, and shave his head!

30 Day Shred

Any thoughts? I am a huge fan of her! I've watched her on The Biggest Loser, and believe she has all the right methods!
Anyone tried this DVD? Any advice?

Day 1

Yesterday I decided that it was just about that time to get started on my fitness. I felt that I have prolonged it enough! I decided to join Weight Watcher's! I joined Weight Watcher's about a year and half ago, and had great results! I lost 15 pounds! Unfortunately I half of it back, but that was completely my fault. So now I am getting back on track!

Yesterday I decided to hit to grocery store, and stock up on healthy items! I also hit up the gym! I had a great workout session, and will be doing the same later today! So far so good! I will keep you posted on my Day 2 :)

A girl can dream...

I always told myself that the day I have a closet filled with Manolo Blahnik's, Jimmy Choo's, and Christian Louboutins, is the day I know I have made it big! That I have hit Success! Now to some that might sound shallow, but to me it just makes perfect sense! So with an upcoming wedding, I've decided that maybe a pair of expensive designer shoes can be an investment! So these are just some shoes that I am drooling over:

Reality Shows

How many of you watch Reality Shows? I DO!!! I have this obsession with them. I feel somewhat comforted by what I watch! I know it sounds odd, but it's true. I love the fact that there are people that are crazier than I am!! This season has been a pretty good season for shows. Lot's of drama, and more drama! It' making a nights just a bit more exciting!! Right now these are the shows that are being recorded by my dvr:

The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Tori & Dean

NYC Prep

Miami Social

John & Kate Plus 8

The Little people Big world

The Duggar Family
So what are some of your favorite Reality shows? Do you even watch them?

Bye Bye Love..

Today Lover embarks on his week vacation with the guys! He will be heading off to the Keys for a week filled with fishing, spearing, diving, lobster filled time! I will miss him..BUT this only means that I need to hit hard the wedding planning!

So I've decided to jam pack my week with vendor appointments. I am going to make sure I stay busy, and most of all stay productive! I'm hoping to settle on a photographer, and a florist. So ::cross your fingers::

Another thing I plan on focusing on this week is my fitness! I've been slacking when it comes to eating healthy, and hitting up the gym. I need to get back on the ball! There is no excuse! I am mainly focusing on a healthy lifestyle! No crash diets! So this week will also be a REAL start! Wish me luck! AGAIN! lol!

Anyhoot! I will spend some little more quality time with Lover, before he goes. So I hope you all have a great Sunday :)

Wine-o Alert

One of my favorite things to do on an average day, is opening up a bottle of wine, and just enjoying glass by glass. It's all about relaxation! There is something about a glass of wine that can just soothe any thought on your mind..
BUT it can get expensive. So I found a solution to my "wine-o" ways. I recently found that Walmart had great deals on wine! One deal in particular was a brand called "Oak Leaf." Not only is there a selection of different kinds of wines, but it's just a whopping $2.97!!

For that amount of money, I can stock up, and have plenty of wines for me, and any other guests that might come by! Make sure to check it out :)

Fighting like...

Ever feel like this?


This past week has flown! I am on break from school for the next 2 weeks. Which means that I have lot's of wedding related items to accomplish! I am currently meeting with florists and photographer's. I've lined up multiple appointments, so let the negotiating begin!
So far the most difficult part is finding a photographer! Out of the list I have, I already started the process of elimination! Either they are not available on my date, or the chemistry was just not there in our meeting. So, I have about 5 photographer's remaining to meet! Wish me luck :)
I will keep you all posted on my current photographer adventure!!
Any married ladies in South Florida have any recommendations?

I am addicted:

I am officially addicted to these two stores! I have visiting different store locations, every time I get a chance, on the search for bathroom accessories, and frames, and just everything! I am starting to think that this is an addiction! I need help! lol..

Busy Bee!!

This weekend was a busy one! We decided to slash some things off the "house to-do list" starting with the back yard! We have a HUGE tree that has grown a bit too much. The roots are all exposed, and we have no room. Literally. So, Lover had to take out a permit, in order to remove the tree. Luckily we were approved, and he decided the tree task! Unfortunately, the tree trunk is so indented in the ground, that it was impossible to just use a shovel! So hopefully by this week, the tree trunk will be gone!
Our plans are to put pavers, and make the back yard ready for entertaining :) Can't wait!
So far everyting is right on schedule, thanks to Lovers hard work! We also did some landscaping in the front yard, and trimmed the bushes that hold as a separation barrier to us, and our neighbor. So for the most part, it was a productive weekend!
