2010... here I come!!

Thursday, December 31, 2009

WOW, thinking back on 2009 brings a tear to my eye. It was such an emotional ride for me filled with joy, excitement, adrenaline and love. I'm not even kidding. I am telling you my God honest truth. I have nothing to complain about =) 2009 was so easy for me only because I knew what 2010 would bring me. So with that in mind, I decided to just sit back, relax and enjoy every moment of my last year of being single.

So with that, I'd like to say GOODBYE 2009, it's been great knowin' ya!

Okay, so enough with the mushy stuff..... let's say hello to 2010!!

So the clock is-a-tickin....

and in about 13 hours ... it will be 2010! The year my life will change forever. Can't wait!

BRING IT ON 2010! Show me what ya got!

I repeat, this is a public service announcement!

We SCORED with our place setting purchase. We have all of our gold charger plates with 6 to spare. OMG! What a relief!

And get this! Can you believe we walked out of Walmart spending a little over $174 for all? That makes each plate equivalent to 63 cents each! Wow, what a bargain! Especially since I was getting quotes for $1.25 per charger JUST to rent.

OMG, you have no idea what a relief this is to me. I have been wanting gold chargers since the day I started planning my wedding and everywhere I've searched, they were asking an arm and a leg for them. And the places where I did find deals, they were located so far away that shipping costs would've kick my booty! So I told myself, that I would wait til Christmas of 2009 to purchase my chargers {since I knew Walmart sold red, gold and silver chargers as part of their Holiday Trim collection} and so I did. I waited and I waited. And what do you know, Christmas came and went.

I purposely waited to make my BIG move for December 26th in order for me to score first pick on the holiday Christmas clearance sale. So of course, to reassure that I get all I need, I had set my alarm Christmas night for 7am the following morning.

December 26th at 7am, I jumped up out of bed, brushed my teeth, combed my hair, colored in my eyebrows {{hehe}}

and was on my way.

When I arrived, I pretty much BOOKED it to the holiday section. lol. Like a bat out of hell. I made it, I spotted my items and from there on out.... it was GAME ON!

After an hour of scurrying through each and every box set, after breaking a sweat, after loading two carts filled of gold chargers, after making friends that just enjoyed watching me go crazy, after $174...I found myself here. In my home. Counting! And here they are.

Aren't they just a beauty!
For me, this was well worth the wait. Well worth the adrenaline rush. Well worth not sleeping in on my day off!
Consider me a HAPPY CAMPER! =)

Merry Christmas!

My Ring Bearer Pillow!!

Thursday, December 17, 2009

Who would have thought a ring bear pillow would have ended up into an unexpected whirl wind? The time I have invested into discovering my dream ring pillow would've been a crime. My research became an obsession that took me to another world where I felt the need to examine each and every pillow carefully and thoroughly. I researched materials, fringes and crystals. I searched high and low in boutiques, department stores and little mom and pop shops.

It wasn't until I unexpectedly stumbled across a cute little shop called 5eizen through one of my favorite sites, etsy. It's funny how things happen to you when you least expect it.

After searching through her site and marking about 5 pillows as my favorite, I narrowed it down to this beauty.

I am the proud owner of this Elle Bloom Ring Pillow which was hand made using silk dupioni textures and graced by an array of whites, creams and ivories. And what tops it all off is knowing that my pillow was announced and featured by MARTHA STEWART herself!
