I Quit Facebook!

>> Monday, December 20, 2010

Yep I said it! I quit Facebook...I was always on there and for what reason? To see whats on peoples minds? No to simply be nosey and share my life with some people I barely knew. I had photos of my wedding, my babies and everything else in between. I found myself constantly checking my Facebook to see if someone replied to my status update, sent me a message or tagged me in a photo. It became all too much and I just thought "what the hell am I doing and why?" I had my phone attached to me at all times so I could pop on Facebook every 5 minutes, I had it at dinner, I took it in the bathroom, and I confess I checked it at stoplights while driving. Not only that but article after article keeps popping up about Facebook and how they care nothing about your privacy and I decided it was enough and just said forget it! So if you were my friend on Facebook and you want to keep in touch, I'll be here or hit me on my cell phone.

Boudless Beauty!

>> Monday, November 15, 2010

I'm so happy that I traded those gorgeous Louboutins that my husband got as my wedding gift for the iPad! I do not regret that decision one bit because the iPad is just amazing! I thought I loved it a lot but then last week after coming home from work and watching the Martha Stewart episode I dvr'd, I found that I love it even more. Martha revealed her very first MLS magazine application for the iPad, it was developed ironically by Adobe (in case you don't know, there's a beef between Adobe and Apple, but I guess when Martha calls, people answer) and it is just breathtaking! Its the best $3.99 that I have spent in a very long time.

I can't express enough how gorgeous the peony "cover" is. It was shot over a 10 hour period using 180 photos and catches the beauty of how the peony blossoms. The boundless beauty features so many other gorgeous elements but I can only share a few pictures here, I just can't get over how spectacular then entire thing is.


I'm in a Christmas State of Mind!

>> Thursday, November 11, 2010

You all know that I LOVE Shutterfly! I used them so many times throughout the wedding process and even after. I ordered my gorgeous guestbook, thank-you cards and the parents albums from them. I have used them for a little over a year and I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of their products.

Since my favorite Holiday (yes that would be Christmas) is just around the corner I of course have already begun designing our Christmas Photo Cards in my head. I will be putting on my photography hat to take our pictures and maybe, just maybe S and I will make an appearance for a family portrait. I hate taking pictures so we’ll have to see if the moment can capture me.

We are going shopping this weekend for outfits for our girlie's and searching for an antique looking over sized chair or couch (Yes! I love antique shopping, the hubby; not so much). I wanted to have the girls in either brown and cranberry or really bright loud colors, we’ll see what we can find. I of course will share the finished product when I get them done.

Here are a few cards that I love!

Head over to Shutterfly to check out what their beautiful Holiday cards.


Our Daycation to the Blue Ridge Parkway!

>> Thursday, November 4, 2010

We live in such a gorgeous state and we vacation in other states all the time and I finally came to the realization that there is a diamond practically in our backyard and we have never explored it. We took the girls for a ride on the gorgeous Blue Ridge Parkway {Happy 75th Annversary BRP}. It should truly be one of the seven wonders of the world especially at the peak of the fall foliage (which is when we went).

We drove about two and half hours south through NC and had a great picnic under a gorgeous tree full of color then we took a small hike so we could take more pictures and see more of the fantastic view!

If you live anywhere near, VA, NC, or TN you should take a ride on the parkway, trust me you will not be disappointed!

Yesterday was my first post in months and I failed to even give you guys an update on all the happenings in My Dream Life! First of all my business {Splendid Wedding Co.} is going pretty good, its off to a slow start nonetheless but I'm participating in my first bridal show this weekend. I decided to not do the booth but will have inserts in the gift bags and I'm gifting one lucky couple a complete invitation suite. I will however be having a booth in their spring show.

Health wise I'm good, I lost another 3 pounds since my last update and its a slow process but I have had way too much going on to really pay attention to it.

As far as married life its GREAT...I love my hubby so much. Our girlie's are doing fantastic in school, both had all E's on their report cards and I couldn't ask for anything else. Little bitty doesn't cause trouble in school like S and I thought she would. She did however get in trouble for turning the lights off while there were little girls in the potty, haha! Bless their little hearts! She apparently is a model student, hmmm I wonder what happens in her head once she gets home because she gets into everything!

We still may move up north, hubby is just waiting back to hear from one of the jobs he interviewed for. Its a long process and could take up to 60 days before he either gets a rejection or an offer (keep your fingers crossed for an offer).

Well that's about all that's really been happening, so how about you guys, what's been going on and have I missed something important?


Hey Ya'll! Happy Belated Halloween

>> Monday, November 1, 2010

I know it been forever, but I really needed that break. I missed you guys like crazy and I still read your blogs. I just had to pop in to share some of the pictures of our girls on Halloween. They had a fun filled weekend with lots of candy, games & parties. Our oldest daughter was Alice in Wonderland and our youngest was Dorothy of course! They loved their costumes, especially because they both got to wear their hair straight. It took me about 4 hours to get all those curls out, but it was worth it and they love it.

So here they are:


Happy Birthday to my Hubby!!

>> Monday, September 27, 2010

I just wanted to hop in and say Happy Birthday to my hubby! Not only is it his birthday, its our 6 month anniversary! Its so hard to believe that 6 months have passed so quickly. I still have not sent out thank-you cards but I did at least order them (I know its horrible). You guys have a great week.


Checking In and Taking a Break...

>> Tuesday, September 21, 2010

So I went on the trip last week and had a BLAST! The flight was actually not as bad as I thought it would be, it turned out to be fun...I will fly again for sure. Thanks to all of you for the tips and encouraging words, it helped. The meeting that I went to attend went great but I'm still not at liberty to discuss this in detail but as soon as I can share, you know I will.

I'm going to be going on a little bit of a hiatus. I feel like I need a break. I'm not sure if it will be a week or a month but I will return when I feel rested. I will still read your blogs but I'm having a writers block and its so hard to find things to write about because to be honest I don't have a lot of interesting things happening. I think a break will give me some much needed time to come up with some ideas that may not bore you :P.

Are any of you other married ladies experiencing something like this?


A Scary Busy Week!

>> Monday, September 13, 2010

I have a crazy busy week ahead! First of all tomorrow is this year's first PTO meeting at my girlies school, they're excited, there's some new technology that they're showing all the parents. I'm off work on Thursday and Friday so that means I'm cramming 5 days of work into two, so far so good though, I got a lot done today.

Thursday I will be taking my very first airplane ride! I am scared out of my mind but I know I have to do it. I'm going for a really important meeting that will hopefully open some doors wide open for me and my family (I hate keeping secrets from you guys but if it pans out I promise to let you know). Its only an hour flight which will help me get my feet wet and prepare me for the 24 hour plane ride to Thailand in 2012. I plan on keeping myself very busy in that hour with music and Netflix on my iPad. Friday will be interesting because I will be in the airport for a good portion of my day so I have a few books (Bree Tanner & Dark Flame) that will have my undivided attention. .

Saturday we're planning to head to Busch Gardens before Fall sets in. If I'm too tired for that then we may just take go to the local apple festival, its full of food, fun and games, not to mention yummy local apples.
Sunday I hope to get at least a half day of rest before heading back to work on Monday. So this week I may not be in the blogging world too much but bare with me, I'll be back next week to tell you all about my flight.

Have a good week ya'll! Wish me luck :) !!!
