Kitchen Makeover

Kitchen Makeover
Tuesday, 8 October 2019
Read post
We have lived in our house for a little over a year now and other than adding a few cushions here and there or putting out a few ornaments, we haven't done anything in the form of decorating. Or should I say, we hadn't up until a couple of weeks ago.

Although we bought a new build, we didn't get to choose paint, tiles or flooring as we were too far into the development process, so our house is literally a blank canvas of magnolia walls, cream carpets and flat grey lino. As nice as that can be, I definitely wanted it to feel more homely and more 'us'. This is also our first ever owned property so its understandable that we want to go wild and make it our own. Starting with the kitchen...

We got married! On September 7th 2019, after much planning, we finally said 'I Do' in front of our loved ones and it was perfect.

In the run up to the wedding I was stressed beyond belief. It felt like nothing was going to be right but everyone told me 'none of it will matter on the day'. Me being the negative nelly I am, I didn't believe them but nevertheless I decided that to try and be optimistic I would try and enter with that mindset at least. 'If it's not done now there's nothing we can do about it'. We also decided that the week before and the week after would be a TTC conversation free zone. No negativity, please!

I can now honestly say - none of it did matter and everything was perfect! 

There was only 31 people (including us and the photographers) at the ceremony itself. We went to the gorgeous local registry office (no seriously, it is stunning - think wooden chairs and marble pillars) and it was just right. We laughed, we cried and we cheered. Our music songs were just beautiful (if I do say so myself) and the registrar was so warm and welcoming.
After the official bit - we then went to a local golf club for the meal and party. We had the same 31 people for the meal and this made it run so smoothly and meant we were really able to speak to everyone. The food was amazing (Mars bar cheesecake or chocolate fudge caked for dessert?! - instant yes from me!) and it was a really lovely and chilled atmosphere.


As our vows were at 11:30am and our meal was at about 2pm- there was quite a gap between that and our evening guests arriving at 6:30pm. That didn't matter too much though as me and my bridesmaids went for a nap while the boys and the family played a game of mini/crazy golf. Actual wedding highlight!



A quick refresh, re-dress and ride in a golf buggy later - the evening guests started to arrive and the party was in full swing. There was a slight hiccup of the DJ arriving 1 hour late but no one seemed to mind and he made up for it with his music and confetti cannon. The evening was a little busier with just over 100 people but we couldn't have been happier with the people who made the effort to come and get involved. We cut our cake at about 9pm (I didn't get a piece on the night unfortunately but there is some in the freezer) and then a few tears were shed during our first dance. Once all of that was 'out the way' so to say, we gathered everyone outside for a little surprise...

FIREWORKS!

I absolutely love bonfire night and really wanted something extra special to add to the wedding for people to remember. I was so, so happy with them and they seemed to go down really well with the guests too. Surprises out of the way, we spent the rest of the evening dancing our little feet off. It really did just feel like a big party and the day was filled with so much love from start to finish. I couldn't have wished for more and now I'm looking forward to spending the rest of my life with my soul mate.


Here's to the future!

As some of you may already know if you follow me on social media, we just got married! It's been a whirlwind few weeks which have been equally amazing and I can't wait to share details and pictures with you shortly - but for now and with that in mind -  I recently heard about a really quirky shop where you can create custom socks online and I thought it was a brilliant gift idea with weddings in mind.

5 Things Not to Say to Someone TTC

5 Things Not to Say to Someone TTC

As I mentioned recently, struggling TTC is making me a not-very-nice person to say the least. I'm irritated easily, I'm very emotional and, well, I'm not much fun anymore. That being said, I don't think I'm being too harsh when I say unsolicited advice from others is far from helpful and does not help the above situation. That's why today I'm going to share with you 5 things you might want to think twice before saying to a couple trying to conceive.

*N.B. As with most of my list posts, this is just a little bit of funny truth. Not aimed at anyone in particular (pretty much everyone we know is guilty of at least one of these) and I am not discouraging people from chatting to us and caring for us. These are just a few things that sting a little when you're already a bit fragile and crazy (which I definitely am).*

I don't like me TTC

Don’t get me wrong, I have never been the life of the party. My friends will vouch for me when I say, I’m most fun when I’m a bit mardy and end up drinking a whole bottle of wine to myself in less than 2 hours (queue the spew). With that being said - I’m definitely not the person I was pre- ttc and if I’m honest with myself, it’s not for the better.
