Just Married!

I was going to wait with this post until we get home and I gain access to all of the wedding pictures, but I couldn’t hold it in any longer. I’m married!!! I know, I can’t believe it myself either haha. It’s absolutely bonkers. But hey, we’ve been married for 3 days now and still going strong!

It has been absolutely manic for the past week or so and I feel like I haven’t slept in months. We’ve all been so busy running off our feet, trying to get things done. In fact, I may be asleep as I’m writing this, I keep nodding off at odd moments. (Here’s a random picture of the venue before the wedding.)

Lack of sleep notwithstanding, we did it. Everything was absolutely 100% perfect. Everyone enjoyed themselves to the fullest and it was so great to finally have our families meet. (Here’s another random picture of our venue before the wedding. We worked so hard to get the decorations up on time.)

I’ll be heading off to bed now, but I’ll leave you with this snap of our first slice of cake as a married couple. It was sooooooooooooo nice!

I’ll be writing more when we get back home and I get all the pictures from my camera and our amazing photographer. So much to show you all.

Until we meet again! Or you know, until I’m awake at least. (I’m a WIFE! Whaaaaaat?!)

Wedding bits and bobs

I was planning to post a lot more about all the wedding planning, but what I didn’t realise was that how much time it all actually takes. And how it’s really not all that interesting. A lot of it is just sending e-mails and delegating assignments to friends and family (thank you for your help!!). I did put together the cocktail menu the other day though that I can show you.

Most of the stuff is actually sorted now. We got my Mr’s suit and everything the weekend before last, the final decoration deliveries have arrived, cake is pretty much sorted, the music is sorted… Just some little bits to do still. Choosing the music was actually a lot more fun than I thought it would be. I have some really good ones there but some that are just really silly. I love it!

I was planning to get a lot done yesterday but instead of being productive I was being sick. I think it was food poisoning or something of the sort so I pretty much spent the day in bed feeling as rotten as they come. I caught up with Pretty Little Liars though. I must say, I loved the ending. I don’t know whether it was the fact that I watched in almost one go whilst only half awake, but I really liked it. I know I’m in the minority there though as most people felt really disappointed by it. Well, not me. For once.

Here’s my new Groot shopping bag by the way. I love it a lot.

Anyway, I’ll get to bed now. Still not feeling 100% and need to actually start being productive again tomorrow.

Can’t believe the wedding is next week!!!

My life

What a week!

You may have noticed I’ve been absent for quite a while now. Here’s why and a quick catch up. I’ll try to keep it brief but you know how I’m prone to rambling. I’ll do my best đŸ™‚

3/5

Studies. Oh. My. Studies. I was trying my absolute hardest to finish my course assignments on time and I managed it! I actually finished and submitted everything. I was quite happy with my work at the time but haven’t had any feedback yet, so we’ll see how I did.

4/5

World’s longest To Do list before our flight on Friday. It included everything from spring cleaning the whole house to doing my nails. Aaaaaand we managed it. I actually even did my nails. Toes as well as fingers. I think it’s pretty impressive. It did mean that I only got to bed after midnight which left me with about 4h of sleep before getting up to go to airport but hey, at least I know that I don’t have a pile of washing waiting for me and my nails still look alright as well.

5/5 

Travelling. A lot of travelling. It didn’t actually even feel that long, but somehow it took us from the morning to the late hours of the evening. It was very chilled though which was great. Maybe that’s why it didn’t feel too bad? I like travelling with a companion – it’s great being able to leave my bags with someone when I go to the toilet. It’s so annoying having to drag them in those tiny little cubicles when I’m travelling alone. So yeah, that’s one of the main reasons why I like travelling with someone. Also, on our way to the airport we saw a lot of bunnies. I managed to get this marvellous pictures with 3 bunnies on it at the same time. And next to our gate there was a flight to Abu Dhabi. Does anyone else remember how Garfield was always sending Nermal there?

ALSO, we tried some really great pastries at Frankfurt airport.

The view was pretty as always…

And when we got to our destination, we made a little stop by the lake to look at the beauuuuuutiful lights on the lake. They slowly change colours and especially on such a calm clear night it was just perfect.

6/5

My little monster’s birthday. For that we went to a spa/water park. It was ahmaaaazinnnnng. Before we went there I had an appointment with my hairdresser where she showed my sister how to do my hair for my wedding. Looking forward to it! Anyway, water park. It was soooo much fun! They have a big pool with lots of different areas with different bits, like hydrotherapy jets, water bar, whirlpool thing and so on. They also had quite a few awesome saunas and our room for the night was brilliant, too. Needless to say my little monster enjoyed it very much.

7/5

Some more water park time before check out. Then we went to my parents country place, did target shooting and BBQd some meat. Hmm, those two were not related haha. No animals were harmed during our target shooting! Even most of the target circles made it (almost) unharmed as well. (Mind you, it was quite far away and the target sheet is very small.) In any case it was a lot of fun!

8/5

I got my wedding shoes! I bought the first ones I saw. We did walk around the shopping centre to see if there’s any others I like more but there weren’t. Very happy with that! Also travelled across the country (thank you sis for driving us!) again to do some more wedding stuff. Stayed with my nan that night.

9/5

So. Much. Wedding. Stuff. Met with all the different people who do different things (catering, venue, florist, register office, etc). It was such a busy day. We did however have time to stop for some pretty flower pictures.

And pictures of Eiffel Tower. Funny, it looks much smaller in person.

Pretty sea!

After that my dear sister drove us across half the country again to our hotel where we were staying for the night. In the hotel I also did our grocery shopping for the next day (online food shopping all the way!) and watched the Eurovision Semi Finals (I didn’t like any of the songs really). Oh, we also bought a couple of really cool big cups.

10/5

More travelling. Home now though. Time to flop as back to work again tomorrow! This tiredness better clear by then, that’s all I’m saying. Exhausted… Absolutely drained. Here, have some more pretty pictures I took on the plane.

Oh, I also came home to this…

20170510_192507

So expect to see a post about it in the near future (some time this week, I hope!).

Right, I think that’s us caught up? I’ll go sleep now. Much needed. Bllllrrrrggggggghhhhh…
