A while ago I did a cupcake decorating course. 8x 1hr sessions where we just learnt the very basics. I was on the 12wbt at the time so my work mates were very helpful in taking the off my hands.

Today was a good work friends last day of work before she went on maternity leave. I took the opportunity to break my baking drought and make some baby themed cupcakes.

Nelly the elephant

Packed her trunk and said goodbye to the circus. 
Off she went with a trumepty trump , trump. trump, trump.
(oh childhood) I put this into you tube and it turned out that I had it totally wrong. 
This is what happens when you rely on memories from when you were 4.

Anyway, the reason for those lyrics is because I am leaving the nest. AGAIN. 
M is coming with me. He is leaving his nest for the first time. With 91 days until the wedding
We have decided to find /rent an apartment of our own and have our space an start our life together.

My future husband is happy about it too which is great. 
I can't wait. 
Packing again however.... lol oh well . well worth it

I went to see my wedding coordinator today . I was very happy with her manner and her service. A definite change from the girl who I had to deal with at the tasting. She didn't make me feel rushed and kept offering for me to come back in to play with ideas that I had. The main reason for the visit is that the centrepiece that we wanted originally and was originally an option for us was no longer available due to its poor condition and there were new ones available. 

These candelaberas come apart. 5 candles

3 Candles. NO VINES
and singular. Ruled this one out

Hurricane glasses on mirror. Would be surrounded by rose petals and tea light candles

I actually don't mind this one.

They were supposed to be candelabras ( First three pictures ). However I think they may be too blingy for what I want. 

I went to a wedding last week where the ambient  light came primarily from candle light and I really love that. This is what they had

What do you think?

M and I booked our honeymoon last night. I have being eyeing it off on Expedia for ages now and we finally had the time and funds to book it!

Our wedding is on the Friday and we won't leave until the Tuesday because for some reason the price difference of a day was about $500.

Lomani Island Resort is the destination. It looks absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait. I just can't wait to be married to M and have a break with just us and no one else ( that we know ) . . . . 15 weeks.

Underwear, Lingerie..... There needs to be something under the dress. I don't need to take care of the top half because corsets are a godsend to women with boobs.

I am thinking something kind of sensible/ kind of playful. If that exists.

What are you wearing? And any suggestions?

Going back to work blues

The post title says it all. I have to go back to work tomorrow and work ALL 5 DAYS! (I get one day a fortnight off and I used it in my holidays)

Bonus is... 14 weeks until the start of my next leave . . . . . AND the WEDDING!

On another  note.. It was a beautiful day in Sydney town today. Nice and Warm. I need the warmth!
