The countdown begins...

Don't you hate it when some much anticipated even creeps up on you? Or is it worse when that time seems to drag?

I haven't decided which is happening to me yet. It seems like eons ago we were first planning our trip to New Zealand, and now it is but two short weeks away. I am sure I have forgotten stuff...

Lets see...picked up the dress on Saturday but the zipper was wrong so I had to drop that back yesterday. She is fixing it today and I have to pick it back up after work.

Have a hair appointment next Monday to erase the grey bits, and get some colour put into Jr Her's as well. Not sure what Him has in mind. His hair is getting quite long at the back. Makes him look years younger. Quite sexy if I do say so myself.

Tickets are booked, accommodation is booked. Just need to get the car booked. And to pack. I will have to do that on the last weekend before we go cause we are both working right up to the day before travel. Eep!

But come Thursday 21st, I know it will all fall together. Oh, I am having trouble with the Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue. Mum just laughed when I said the "old" was the bride...

I found a beautiful little blue bird brooch mum gave me when I was 5, which takes care of old and blue...the jewellery mum gave me for my 40th is the new...wonder what I can borrow, and who I can borrow it from???

i have various earrings that you could borrow...

i got a pair of redback spiders.... a pair of spiderwebs.... a really cute pair of white earrings that i got for a birthday a while back... they've got those little ball-shaped things on them that glitter..... i can't remember what they're called, but they're quite elegant.

and of course i have a variety of odd earrings that i've picked up in various places....

and i think amii has a pair of black hearts with red guns in front of them..... i thought they were pretty cool.....

or i have various necklaces too. ooh! i have this really pretty back cross. ask mum about it. she wants to steal it from me i'm sure......
