Wedding Wednesday And My Birthday!

Happy Wednesday everyone!! It’s going to be a short work week, thank goodness. I had a hard time realizing that today was actually Wednesday….weird!

But, it is Wednesday. In fact, its Wednesday, October 12th, 2011 or in other words…My 24th birthday! That feels so weird to type! No, I don’t think I’m “old” per say! I know I have a lot of years ahead of me but I still can’t help but have this, “wow I’m 24, that’s so close to a quarter of a century” feeling! I think about all that has happened in those 24 years of life and how it has brought me here today. I keep thinking, this is my last birthday as an unwed woman and that in it’s self is a little weird as well.

Maybe I’m facing the facts now. In a few (7 months as of today to be exact) months I will become a Mrs. I will no longer be a 23 year old bachelorette. This time next year on my 25th birthday (AHHH!!) I will have a husband. A husband!

So, being that today is my birthday and that actually entitles me to Princess status for the day…What? Just humor me ok? :-) And so I’m gonna fill you in on Wedding tidbits! You know, some stuff that doesn’t need a WHOLE post to talk about but that I don’t want to leave out!

Wedding Central:

Wedding Central 001

This is my sunroom. It is right off of the kitchen and it is enjoyed 3 out of the 4 seasons. It has now been dubbed, Wedding Central. This is where all of the wedding “do-dads” are being put as a safe place until WDay.

P.S Wday is now my new short for version for Wedding Day for all those who I text.

See those pretty gems sitting in wedding central? Well, within those boxes lies my future centre pieces. Yes, I wanted mason jars as centre pieces and yes, I made Mom freak out when I told her I didn’t need to buy them yet. Apparently, stores don’t carry a lot of mason jars out of canning season….who knew! :-)


There are these awesome gifts that Ryan and I want to get the groomsmen! We sat down and prepared said gifts and clicked send. Well, of course this NEW YORK based company will not ship said gifts to me in Canada! I mean, HELLO…I can drive to your office in like 6 hours but you won’t ship me those items! Let’s see the geographical difference shall we?

That measly red line….THAT my friends is the difference! BAH! 

First dance blues:

For the life of us Ryan and I can’t pick a first dance song. We’re not overly mushy gushy about things like that and so we never did have a “our song”.

Actually that is a lie. We kind of have a song but it is SO not first wedding dance appropriate. Our first summer dating I was working with him one weekend. I was SO mad at him that afternoon for who knows what reason! When the song “Let It Die” by the Foo Fighters came on the radio Ryan started lip singing the song and dancing like a fool. I tried SO hard not to laugh since I was “mad” at him but he looked so silly that I burst into laughter.

“Why’d you have to go and let it die” doesn’t scream, FIRST DANCE song at our wedding for some reason. I guess we’ll have to keep searching.

There you have some random wedding thoughts on this random Wednesday that is also own as my birthday and Wedding Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday everyone!



  1. hey, I live in Missouri, that's in the states :) Just sayin :)


  2. Happy Birthday!!!

    Your getting married two weeks before me!

    ..and we are having an impossible time picking our song as well.

  3. Happy Birthday. I love mason jars!!!

  4. Happy Birthday! Your wedding is going to be absolutely beautiful, I love mason jars as center pieces!

  5. Ha ha, Linsady, Mom was right, you would not find mason jars in May. Our first dance was Time In a Bottle by Jim Croce. Old, but it still makes me feel the same way I did when I married Reg 31 years ago! I googled wedding dance songs and here is the link for the top ones in Canada:

    Maybe that will help. Happy Birthday.

  6. Superb blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks!
