W Is For Wedding Dress

I must be the only person on earth who did not have a wagon as a kid.
Every one I knew had one, ironically red Little Flyer wagons were all the rage, but I didn't have one.
I made sure to buy a wagon for my kids. Fisher Price made awesome wagons with benches, so that's what I went with for them.
But I am not going to babble for a whole post about this, no, I have something nearer and dearer to my heart to share with you all.
"The hubby" and I are not actually married. We're only common-law for now. After 13 years, we're married in the government's eyes, our families eyes, and probably God too.
When my dad passed, my mom wanted to get my wedding dress, since my dad would no longer be there. It was the single most wonderful thing anyone has done for me.
I have what I call and Audrey-Hepburn-sense-of-style. The dress is very reminiscent of that era and reminds me very much of Audrey Hepburn. When I saw it, I knew I had to have it.
Thankfully, July of 2015, I finally get to wear it!!!! (Permitted things stay on plan. We have family in Texas we want here as well as family in other parts of our province, so coinciding every one's schedules may be an issue.)
I've had the dress a few years now, and still feel the same way every time I pull it out to look at it. I just know it's the dress.
Recently, I found the piece I will wear in my hair. It matches my dress perfectly.
People who know me, know what a princess I am. I was going to get a tiara to wear on the big day. Then I saw this headband and had that same "just know it" feeling.
Now it won't matter where we do the ceremony, which is still up in the air. He wants to do it on the harbor boat, I want outdoors... maybe even my mother-in-laws yard.... so we'll see what happens. Just be sure it will happen. Eventually.

For those who are married, how long did it take you to tie the knot? For those engaged, what type of wedding will you have??

  4. I love the line that the hubby and I are not married! Congrats! Beautiful dress.... it took me quite a while and enough drama to write a book about before I tied the knot :)

    When I did marry, we had a planned elopement on the beach in Aruba

  6. I am a fan of Audrey too, always have been and always will. I played so many of her movies throughout my daughter's childhood that she too is a fan as well. My current, and (second husband) and I lived together, unmarried for six years, dated almost two before that, and once we married, a year and 7 months later we had our first child! My first husband, we met on October 29th and married in December, of that same year. We had a baby boy three years later (he was born on the day the 29th of October) and that marriage lasted only four years. Making sure it's right, is so very important!

Dr. Suess' The Grinch (With #Giveaway)

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
