The Wedding!

Last night I went to a friends house and watched the Royal Wedding.
I must say I loved how formal the wedding was.
Even though I would never have such a formal wedding, it is really exciting watching one.
The wedding was a fairy tale come true, I felt like I was watching Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty.
Kate's dress was amazing, only someone as tall and thin as her could pull that off!
I must say I was laughing at how some of the guests were dressed.
Eugenie ( in the blue get up) looks ridiculous. Why would you chose that dress when you could wear anything in the world?  Beatrice (the one on the right) looks amazing, but that hat is over the top!

I love that everyone wore hats, I wish there were more formal events in this world that required hats. 

Not only did Kate look awesome, but her sister the main bride's maid had the best dress I have ever seen.
I felt like her dress could also be a wedding dress itself of course if you are not marrying a prince!

Prince Harry looked dashing!  Maybe even better than William.

Posh and Beck looked amazing!  You would never know she was pregnant.
They were defiantly the best dressed guests by a long shot.
Pictures found here


Maybe I will be getting married the same year that William and Kate did...hint hint!!!

Royal Wedding Countdown

Yesterday I got a package!
In the mail!
I never get mail, so it was very exciting.
The package came from my mom and included candy and about 5 new, really cute tops.
Apparently she got a really good deal on all the clothes and said that the postage ended up costing more than everything in the box.

Today was really cool and rainy.
Thankfully the rain slowed so I could go out and take some pictures.



Who is excited about the royal wedding?
I am soooo excited I am going to dress up like a bride and watch from 5pm till 12 when it ends!
Just kidding, but it will be good entertainment.
I wonder what Kate and William are doing the night before the big day? Makes you wonder.

Refashioning

Over the weekend I decided to work on the big pile of clothes I had set aside to alter.
My mom had given me this green shirt about a year ago and I have never worn it because it was too big and looked like pjs.  So I decided I should try to take the shirt in and see if it would look better.

Turned out the shirt still looked like pjs!  So I put it in the bag for the good will, apparently not everything can be reworked!

 Below is a skirt that I bought at the thrift store.  It wasn't until I tried it on with a top that I realized it is a weird length, so I decided to hem it.
Here is the skirt after, looks much better. 
Hope everyone is having a good hump day!

Summer to Fall

From Summer to Fall
It is easy to refashion an outfit from one season to the next by adding warm underthings.

Where we use to have flowers growing there are now mushrooms!
Must be from all the wet weather over the weekend. 
I don' t know if its because today was the first day back to work after the long weekend, but I just wasn't feeling it today.  I need a nap.

Easter 2011

Friday night we went to a friends house and watched the rugby.
When we got home I was looking at blogs and came across this post about tying up your hair to make a fake bob style.
Looks sorta like a rats nest but I think if I give it another try it will look better. 

Saturday was nice and sunny and the waves were supposedly really good at Maori Bay, so we decided to head to the beach.
I think the cosmos had a different idea of how the day was going to go.

First thing Grant puts on his new sun glasses that cost lots of moola and finds there is a huge deep scratch on them on the inside of the lens, how did it happen? we will never know!
We then get in the car and head to the beach, we got about 2 min from our house and hear a weird noise, pull over and the back left tire is totally flat!

I have to walk back to our house get my car pick up Grant and the tire and drive to the tire place.  Lucky for us they were still open and it only cost $20 to fix.
When we get to the beach the waves are no good for surfing lol.
Oh well at least we enjoyed the nice weather and I was forced to go on a walk hahhaha.

Waiting for the tire repair.

Maori Bay
Being the poser I am!

Get my picture while I hold this pose for 20 minutes hahahha



Saturday night we met Tom and Alina for dinner in Ponsonby for Thai food. 
The food was great, I got the cashew chicken as usual and it was delicious.
Grant said take my outfit picture hahahaha 
He is the best looking guy, should be a model...ok maybe not

Today is Easter and so far we have breakfast and a chocolate egg and its already 241pm,
Where is this day going?

Inspiration

New Inspiration Board
Last weekend I got a cork board so I can put up pictures that inspire me.
I need some new magazines but I worked with the few I had. 
I can't wait to copy some of these outfits and to get that diamond ring wink wink. 


Check out my shoe post that I did at Girls Gone Bloggin'

Today we are off to the beach because it is sunny and Grant is going to surf his little heart out.

Art Excitement

I have been working on these cute little paintings that I will be selling on my Etsy account very soon.
My plan is to sell prints of the images, the only problem is I will have to get them to my mom before I can list them, so it might take a little while.

My outfit today is a little crazy.
This morning I slept through my alarm which meant I woke up 30 minutes late!
When I went to put my outfit on I realized the belt I had picked out didn't work, so I grabbed the vest, yikes!
Crazy combo? YES!

Monday Over!

The Blues vs. NSW

Last night we met up with Tom and Alina and went to the Rugby game.
Auckland won YAY!
Grant is the only person really watching the game hahahhaa.

We had a great time.
I ordered a hot dog and I must say I did not get what I was expecting!  It was so gross I only took one bite and Grant ate the rest yuck!!!
That was the first time since I have been in NZ that I ordered food expecting one thing and getting another.

After the game we went to a Mexican food place in Kingsland for drinks and snacks.



Here is one of the shoe paintings I have been working on.
So far I have 5 paintings that I will be sell prints of on etsy. 

I have also started a new project of painting some cute perfume bottles which will also be on Etsy soon!
Happy Weekend

Grant's Birthday

Yesterday was Grant's birthday.
After I got home from work I made him some of his favorite cookies.
He opened his gift from me and my parents.

He wore the shirt that my mom and dad gave him out.

I got changed into my black dress and boots.

We went to dinner at Portofino in Takapuna and after we met some friends at the Macs bar.

Everyone had a great time.


After the Macs Bar we went to the Copper Room.
Alina and I took a picture with a cop.

We got home around 1am.

The story now will get interesting.
This morning I woke up around 750am so we could go and get our car before we got a ticket.
I walked into the kitchen and said "what the hell is going on?"
One of the cookies from the tray was across the kitchen near the stove, with a trail of crumbs.
I asked Grant "did you throw a cookie last night?"
Grant came running into the room, and after a little investigation we realized that a rat must have eaten part of a cookie and then picked it up and walked all the way to the stove and dropped it!

From the tray all the way to the corner near the stove.
The cookie had huge teeth marks in it!
We threw away all the cookies that were near the edge that he grabbed from!

SO GROSS!

Time to get some traps!!!
