Jewelry to die for!


I want the above beauty for my bridesmaids!


This pink confection is perfect for date night with my sweetie!
I don't even know where I would wear this orange bow number but I know I HAVE to have it!

Holy Crap I think this is my favourite! I didn't even know I like lilac but come on!
And wouldn't this aqua number be perfect with a pair of jeans and a hot white t-shirt?!
Oh my gosh and this one is perfect for a afternoon on the town shopping and gossiping and stopping for cocktails with my girlfriends!



Good Morning Everybody and Happy Weekend! I have seen this designer everywhere on the blogs lately and I think you can see why! Aren't they just fabulous?! I want to eat them they are so pretty! I want all of them! Oh my gosh! They are made by the design house Elva Fields. I first read about them on Boots and CatEyes and then later on my new favourite wedding blog What Junebug Loves.
Well I love them that's for sure! What about you?

Thankful Tuesdays!

Goodmorning Everybody! I love reading the Boots and CatEyes blog. She a sweet and creative actress living in LA and planning a wedding. I found this new blog called ThxThxThx through her. It's a blog completely dedicated to writting Thank you notes. The authors mother always taught her to write thank you notes so now she writes one for everything! It is so inspiring and funny! I love it. Since slowly becoming more spiritual I have been praying twice a day and always finding thanks for so many things. Now I am inspired from Leah's blog to share a few with you every Tuesday . Maybe you can send me a few things you are thankful for too?

Here are a few from Leah's blog:



And here's mine:

Dear Fiance, Family and Friends
Thanks for supporting me and never judging me through my search for happiness and cloudy mental illness. Thanks for loving me when I don't love myself. Thanks for believing in me and I promise I will not let you down.
Love,
Sam

Sliema Spring Fest with Sue






Happy Saturday Everyone! I woke up early this morning and thought I would start out with the Springfest Sue and I visited two sundays' ago. It was in Sliema which is the next town over. Sue took the coolest picture of us riding the bus over. Can you see us in the drivers mirror?
We got there early and bought a chocolate crossaint and watched the vendors set up. There was a stall for wine and traditional maltese food, one for lace makers, one for flowers and veggies and the list goes on. They even had a karaoke/lip singer! True maltese style! We loved every minute of it. Especially at the end when Sue helped me talk to one of the lace makers about making my wedding veil! I can't wait to take Mom with me to the womens shop when she gets here in June.

Sue, Vince and Sam take Comino!




On the ferry ride over, I am NOT impressed!
Goodmorning Everybody! I am fending off the sadness with some bright and sunny pictures of last weekend on Comino and the Blue Lagoon. We took the 10am ferry over to Comino on Sunday and checked into our hotel and headed straight to the Blue Lagoon. We did a nature walk around the island and then changed into our bathsuits and went for a dip! Very Refreshing! The liquid courage helped for sure. Can't wait till you all get here!

A Sue on the Rocks



Good afternoon Everybody! I wanted to share a few pictures of our trip to The Rocks. There are a couple of kilometers of flat rocks off the coast of Sliema which is the town next to ours. They are really popular for swimmers and sun loungers like us. So we headed over for the day on tuesday and spent a few hours snoozin and reading and eating our little picnic. It was awesome! Wish you were there!

My little Brother is 30 years old!

Holy Macaroni! Yesterday was Ryan's 30th b-day! Can you believe it! I know! If you've never met my brother I will give you the lowdown.
He is freakishly smart
He is soft and cuddly
He is loyal and strong
He makes me laugh till almost peeing my pants
and he's scared of sharks!

I am so lucky to have a brother like him. Thank you gods for bringing him to into my life and somehow miraculously letting him love me still after many years of torture I bestowed on him during our early years! :)
I love you Ryan! I hope you had the best birthday ever!
Love and Hugs

BBQ Octopus a la Jamie Oliver





Happy Monday Guys! Okay it's really obvious we have a serious BBQ wierd fish problem over here. We just can't stop. Everytime I go to the fish counter at the grocery store there is something new and interesting. What can I do but buy it ,take it home, BBQ and eat it...right?? I just bought Jamie Olivers new cookbook called Jamies Does Italy, Spain, France, Sweden, Morroco and Greece. I've never bought any of his books before but I couldn't resist this one mostly because the Italy section is in Venice! and Sweden? That's so weird! I always wondered what they cook up there. Anyways it's a great book with tons of travel pictures and looks of stories which I love. I found this BBQ Octopus recipe in the Greece section and had to give it a try.
What do you think of our results?
Love and Hugs
