Happy New Year!

December 31, 2006

Happy New Year Everyone…..!  Wow, I can’t believe that it is 2007 already….Only 5 days including today until the wedding and heaps to do but we are making sure that we are relaxing and enjoying the break each day……Woke up yesterday morning and the weather wasn’t that great so we hung out at home…I got one major thing completed….I found an old friend of mine who I haven’t seent for about 3 years and have been looking for…….We first met 10 years ago when I was 20 and I became part of a large group of friends where i was the minority in 2 ways…I was the youngest by 8 years and I was female….It is funny looking back at my 21st there were about 30 people there and only 6 females….I have always seemed to hang out with a crowd older than me and male…probably becuase I was the youngest of 6 kids by 12 years and the only daughter…Yes I have 5 older brothers….Well yesterday i finished off ringing all the people in the Auckland phone book again under his inital and last name…I have done this before but it must have been in between him shifting as his new number wasn’t in the book.  I am happy to say that Dean and his girlfriend and another old friend Karl are coming to the wedding on Saturday.  Dean was like a brother and best friend to me and for a number of different reasons like moving etc some how we lost touch, but he is the sort of person if you haven’t chatted for ages when you do it is like you were only talking last week….

Well must be off and get some things done but will check in again latter…I have tried to upload pics but have buggered up flicker and trying to fix it…

6 Days to go….

December 30, 2006

and what a great day we have had today…Evelyn one of my bridesmaids picked David and I up this morning and we fought the horrible weather that Auckland had this morning and drove down to hamilton where we met up with Jo and Judith my other 2 bridesmaids and we all tried on our outfits including nerissa our flower girl and jonathan our page boy…We all looked awesome…We then went out to Iguana’s in Hamilton for a girls lunch….it was yummy…If you are ever in Hamilton near Victoria st and in need of good food have a go at Iguana’s….Yummy…

Then we headed back and dropped Judith off picked David up and headed back to the otherside of town to drop Jo off at her brother in laws and then we headed back to auckland….what a hot day it turned into and my left arm is red but looking like it is turning brown….

As David loves water if it is a nice day tomorrow we are going to head out as a family to have a relaxing few hours at the beach….Can’t wait….

Check back in tomorrow for another update…I will try and up load some pics of our bridemaid dress and flower girl dress.

Wow, I don’t know where the past 8 months have gone…We have 7 days until our wonderful wedding next Saturday 0n the 06th January…It has been a trying time becuase of of a few vendors but we are all solved now!!!!

We had a wonderful Christmas well 2 infact…we went down to my mum and dad’s on saturday to katikati and had presents and a yummy christmas dinner which richard and i cooked and then over on sunday to richard’s folks in hamilton….We had a lovely morning on Christmas Day opening pressies and helping Richard’s mum cook Christmas lunch…then a nice quiet afternoon playing with the babies of the family and then watching tv…

Today has been a busy wedding planning day…We headed out about 9.15 to Waiuku to Castaways for our final wedding meeting, back to Papakura at midday, quickly home and then into town and then new market and finally home just after 3.00pm…wow, i am tired….

So sorry that I haven’t been on for ages, I actually can’t believe that it has actually been that long…We are just sooo busy with last minute Christmas and Wedding plans that I haven’t had much time for anything else…It’s just all the last little minute things for the Wedding…I think that it is all sorted and then plans get changed etc…

Only 21 days until our Wedding…Wow that has gone fast…I will update you all more tomorrow about the wedding…I just wanted to quickly hop on and let you all know that we are okay besides David having a little cold and cough and that I haven’t forgotten about you…
