Day 78 Engaged in Wedding Thoughts

So a few days back (Day 71 Zen Thoughts on Mermaids), I shared that I had good news that I would share at a later date. I can now share.

My sister is getting married! 

My kids will have their first official uncle! 

I'm absolutely ecstatic for her! I can't wait to see what she picks out for her wedding style, to help her pick out a dress, and be a part of all that wedding hoopla. Will it be an outdoor wedding? She looks so happy already, I can only imagine how happy she'll be on her wedding day. Will her dress be white, ivory, champagne? The tricky part for me is to not be the pushy sister who bombards her with wedding dresses, decor, favors, etc. I wonder what colors she'll pick for the decor? I tend to be opinionated, but hopefully, I'll be just opinionated enough to assist her instead of drive her crazy. Bridesmaids' dresses... she wouldn't put us in peach? Nah... Once I get something in my head, I tend to slightly obsess about it. My thoughts just run wild with the idea. Ooooh, cake! How many tiers? I am so happy for her and as you can see, I have a lot to think about! But it all brings a smile to my face!


  1. Awesome! I'm so happy for you and your sister! A wedding is so much fun! :-)

  2. Oh Congrats! So happy For you! My Sister in law is getting married too! I'm THRILLED for her, cause she's just awesome! So I'm a little obsessing over wedding stuff too! lol.

    Stopping by from Members to remember via Voiceboks!

  3. oooh! A wedding!!! yay!! so much fun. have to admit, my hubs and i married in jamaica - we were part of the new "destination" wedding peeps (in 1999!!) and if i had to do it all over again?? I would do the same thing!! We had a party here when we got home so we did the "beach" theme. Loved each and every minute of it.

    Much luck to your sister and your new brother in law! And to you ... so much fun!!

    Stopping by from VB today! Have a wonderful day!

  4. Congrats for your sister, Kelly! You sound so excited. I bet you'll be the best bride's maid. I'm glad that your kids will love their new uncle. Have fun with all the wedding plans!

  5. I am sooo lucky to have a sister like you! Please be pushy! Give me loads of ideas! I have no idea where to start! And, of course, I would never put you in peach! I love your blog! Never stop! Love you my maid of honor! :) And thank you to all the ladies for the congrats!
