thankful (a non wedding blog)

many people are posting on facebook about how they are thankful for there family, home, health or even there little four legged friends. I am thankful for all those things, however this thanksgiving i want to focus on the other things in life that i am oh so grateful for but just don't get the thanks they here it goes...these are the things that really keep my world moving..

1. automatic bill pay - otherwise i would forget
2. 103.7 morning djs - they play local quiz games i like, talk a little, and when they do its only about important things.. morning DJs usually bug me. These ones dont and i am thankful for them!
3. my ducks - i love watching them grow up in our pond they make me smile alot!

8. angry birds- the best time filling app ever!!
9. the blog stuff Christians like- it makes me laugh and keeps me inspired
10. work email- how else could i talk to my friends all day?
11. my dog lewie- i know he is in the category of things everyone is thankful for but really he makes me happy everyday, and he is sitting on a pile of blankets right now watching cute!
12. drive thru coffee stands- i went in my slippers today
intermission..the ducks are fighting....
13. cup holders in my car- for after visiting coffee stands
14. those mini shopping carts- so much easier to drive!
15. gilly hicks - for making the most comfy undies ever!

Odd Wedding Photo of the Week

you probably thought i forgot about the blog with all this snow...but no! i didn't! A snow inspired wedding photo for you today. Would you have taken this photo? The groom looks way more into it! By the amount of of snow on the ground behind them, i am guessing it was a snow themed wedding, not a surprise snow...So would you stick your tongue out toward the sky for a wedding picture?

Fourth odd element: The conservative looking groom
Fifth odd element: The collar on the brides awful dress
Sixth odd element: The sleeves on the brides awful dress
Seventh odd element: The girl in the background on the left side looks like a stripper pre stripping...or maybe she is from a Janet Jackson video

Recent Rocks Being Rocked

Jessica Simpson is engaged again! The blondie we love for her shoes...and for making Nick available again is engaged to her boyfriend (ex nfl player) of four months who got divorced five months ago...congrats?
So what does four months of dating get you? A RUBY! apparently, sided by diamonds. She has said it represents there passion, and love...(non gonna lie..i like it) but there are rumors she bought it for herself....who cares in my mind...but some people do i guess.. her first ring.... speaking of Jessica's first ring. Nick is also recently engaged..announced one week before Jessica' long time girl friend Vanessa minnillo
Now on to....Chad Ochocinco..maybe u have heard of him..he is the flashy NFL star famous for the name change, and a whole lot of other outrages stunts including his own tv show...he just got engaged to a jersey chaser of sorts off basketball wives...10cts! i would say he stayed to his flashy ways!

The biggest engagement now...Kate Middleton's ring, Diana's old ring, which i get, William wanted to have a piece of his mom with them in the wedding process, but at the same time, her marriage didnt last... anyway here is the royal jewel!

You can buy your own version here....(something blue??)

hope you are enjoying rocking your ROCK!

Deep down i am obsessed with royalty. It fascinates me that you really can marry a prince and live happily ever after. Today the official announcement came for Kate Middleton, she is engaged to prince William. Of course, they actually got engaged a little over a month ago on a trip to Kenya, but have been doing the formalities of be royal since then, with queen approval (talk about intimidating in laws) and formal dinners to meet the family, and all those other things royals do..who really knows..Right? after all they are a real life fairy tale...

Anyway, here are some pics of the happy couple....

And now this Kate Girl! She seems to be very polished...stylish, and well i think a pretty girl...check out the photos...
I am of course obsessed with her great hats, and the fact that she will get the wedding of the century, however, she also seems like a sweet girl. Not to mention a brunette with light skin! It will be interesting to see what type of wedding she has, what styles/trends will emerge from it and what date they will choose. Rumor is that it will be spring or summer, possibly July at Windlesham Moor near Windsor Castle, where the queen was married, not where Diane was married.
Here are a couple other photos of this soon to be princess...Did you think she has a facebook?

here she is duck hunting...classy!

and here she is skiing!

I am sure i will blog on this again as details come out of there plans! i do wonder what there budget is.......

dear vintage shopper....

this wedding's bridesmaids were all dressed via vintage stores..including shoes! hope it makes you smile!

PS..i want to be the bridesmaid in the cowboy boots!!

the HELLO YELLOW question....?

they call it Mellow Yellow...or sunshine! or banana...or daffodil...or bus...mustard...or happiness...i know you love it...but how much do you love it?..enough for your dress to be color of your day? You haven't dress shopped yet..and this could be a secret deep down inside you that you haven't shared yet...are you planning a yellow dress?

will the flow of your yellow gown makes for a sunny bride.....

or will u be the seducing yellow bride...with white bodice daffodil flowers cascading down the chest....
or a mustard and princess bride... hopefully not a squished boobs bride...yellow gems...or are you leaving your dress white and just filling the skirt with yellow petals....are you adding pink roses...showing love for our dear alpha xi?

or are you wearing a hat with your mellow yellow dress..this hat is so do i say it..umm interesting..? or horse race-ish?

of if your not wearing that hat? what about this hat? with a jump suit instead of a dress?
Are you going to use textures and fabric like never this dress where the under layer looks like potato bags..that say "thank you"...not sure why would need your wedding dress to say "thank you" maybe you can explain this to me if you get this dress...

This one is actually the most you i think...mix of techno colored top...than yellow tulle! all you need is a yellow vail...and u would be a techno colored pretty bride!

or are you ready to be a house wife and carry the kids on my shoulders bride like this dress with the apron and the odd head piece...

SO TRISH...are you planning a yellow dress?

and this one i think is just super cute. Winter wedding, So. the sweater!
