  • Introducing Mr & Mrs C!

    Edward and I married last month on Saturday August 27th, 2016! The months up the to wedding were so hectic because we made everything ourselves including the Wedding dress, the Maid of Honors dress, the Bridesmaids dresses and the flower girl dresses, the bouquets, the table cloths, runners, all decorations and much more!

    Over all everything went perfect! We rushed the final Wedding dress a bit because the first one which was fully finished ended up being too big! I lost over 20 lbs in the months before the wedding As happy as I was about this it kind of put us in panic mode. But I am so happy! I am married to the man that I love more then life itself and that I want to grow old and grey with.

    My sister-in-law Ashley was our photographer and my other sister-in-law, Eddie’s sister Jen was one of my Bridesmaids. My best friend Erin was my Maid of Honor who was 3 weeks from delivering my God son made it through without giving birth  4 days ago she gave birth to a sweet baby boy. My friends Kristy and Jenn were both bridesmaids and my nieces were a junior brides maid and a flower girl. We had two flower girls and two ring bearers. [...]

  • Leave of Absence

    After a lot of stressing, talking, more stressing and more talking; Eddie and I have come to the conclusion that I need to take a Leave of Absence from work for the summer.  Three and a half months to be exact. Returning September 1st, 2016. It was not an easy decision to make and stressful in itself because we just bought a new car and our payments are more, where was I going to get money since there is no paid leave here?

    But thanks to my mother and my sister-in-law it is going to be possible. My mom contacted her boss and asked if I could take in some typing (transcription work) to do at home and my sister-in-law has asked me to babysit her kids part-time. Between the two I should make just enough and can do it from home for the summer and still have enough to pay my part of the bills. In September I’ll re-asses. I got a doctors note and yesterday was my last day till September. [...]

  • New car and wedding planning!

    So we bought a new car today! It’s not brand new but it is a 2015, a Nissan Alitma SV. It was a really good deal. It has 67,000 km on it but they extended the warranty free of charge so we had another 100,000 km which is what the original warranty for a new Nissan Altima would be.

    The pictures are not the greatest but they were just quick ones Eddie snapped with his phone. We will get some better ones this weekend hopefully. It’s a really nice car and so much bigger then the Fiesta!

    I can’t wait to take it to New Brunswick and maybe into the US with us next weekend. I hate putting that many miles on a car we just bought so fast but we are just going into Maine. It’ll all depend on if we can get the plates switched from the old car to the new one before next weekend. [...]

  • Our first trip to the US together

    The last weekend in April my parents and Eddie and I are taking a trip into Maine to Bangor to hopefully buy material for the wedding. We will be staying at my Aunt and Uncle’s cottage in New Brunswick for 4 nights and will be making at least one day trip into the US.

    Eddie and I are so excited. It is his first trip to the US. We went and got a passport for him the other day specifically for this trip. He’ll need it anyways for our honey moon. It’s soon going to be time to start planning the trip.

    We are planning for the weekend to go to Jo-Ann Fabric in Bangor. We have the pattern’s already for the wedding dress and for the bridesmaids and flower girl dresses. I can’t wait to get started on them.

    The wedding dress is just a regular dress pattern. But we are going to turn it into a wedding dress using charmeuse and lace. I can’t wait to get started on it. Mom and I are going to sew it together. We are making all the dresses. We are also doing the food ourselves, cold platters and we are doing all the decorations ourselves. [...]

  • Wow, where has the time gone!

    I was looking at my site today and can’t believe it has been almost a year since I last blogged. So so much has gone on since then. For those of you who are not following me on Facebook or Instagram. I’m getting married! To a wonderful man named Edward Eddie for short.

    We have been living together since mid-October 2015 and been together since the beginning of June 2015. He asked me to marry him on Christmas day. It wasn’t really a surprise as I knew it was coming but I am so happy. I couldn’t be any happier.

    I am still working at the same place but I have moved to a permanent night shift working from 4pm to Midnight. I still enjoy it there. November 2016 will be 5 years! I don’t really miss days at all.

    So anyways back to the wedding. We are getting married on August 27, 2016. We have the venue booked, have the invitations mostly done up and we have the dresses picked out. My mom and I are making them. She is teaching me to sew. My best friend Erin is going to be my maid of honor and guess what she is pregnant so I am going to be an Auntie again as well! [...]
