So, I’m sitting at the hardresser and I’m very bored! Thought I’d try blogging on my phone :)

This last sunday morning, we had a bit of a #weddingPlanningTweetup in midrand :)

it was only 5 of us: Angel, Sharon, MeeA, Jessica and I… Some of the ladies are a lot more organised and prepared than others! Hehe… Got some handy tips and leads for contacts…

There was also a ‘ring examination’ :) we compared our #sparklies… I have the fattest finger … As always! Sharons ring is *beautiful*!!

Also got to meet Joshua, sharons kidlet… He was so good and so cute! And got the biggest piece of lemon meringue pie ever… Was very cute :)

What a nice bunch of girls :) we made tentative plans to do a meander thingy later in the year… So look at venues and sample food and champagne :) … Was such a fun morning – and really nice to meet sharon and jessica… And see angel and meeA (with a sleeping #babyparkins) again.

Thanks girls! :)

I really wanted to tweet this story, but it’s just too long!!

I had a photobook made (of some photos that Jeanette took for our engagement shoot) for my mom… I didn’t tell her we were doing a photoshoot… so it was a complete surprise for her!


<<side note: i REALLY ADORE that B&W upside down faces!! love it!!>>

I gave her the book this morning… she LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!!!! she was on her way out to the hairdresser, so she took the book with her.

She came back and said to me “those photos are so beautiful! But what about the all the backgrounds? Did you actually go to all those places?”

ROFLMAO!!!!

PS Jeanette… my mom says the photos are gorgeous and you are VERY talented and obviously know exactly what you are doing :) thanks a million for the photos!
