Blog-tember #19 + #20 – catching up!

So I kind of fell off the bandwagon… It started with prompt #18, vlogging, which is not.gonna.happen. I hate my voice and I’m not spontanious at all, so no way, Jose!

BUT I really wanted to do prompt #19: Tell us about one of the best days of your life. Still, this past weekend has been quite busy for me. I cleaned the whole house, cooked and finished my projects with the Scrapbook Werkstatt October kit. So a little late, here comes one of my best days ever!

My wedding day - by nachtschwinge(Pictures taken by my Mum, some of the official photographer’s pictures have been posted before.)

Yes, it’s cheesy, but my wedding day is definitely in my top three of all days! :) Just looking at these pictures makes me happy and sentimental! :D

I spent the night over at my best friend’s flat and got dressed there, too, in the morning after having my hair done by my trusted hairdresser. That was the time when I realized a piece of my dress was missing, that is the part that made the corsage a little bit wider (because I’m so busty and it was quite a bit tight)… I was near to panic because I thought we’d never get the top on without that piece, but with a little help of my friend’s Dad (*lol*) we managed. I kind of held my breath for  the whole day and didn’t eat a lot, but it was worth it ;)

Well, we arrived at the little water castle (love that place!), had our first sight :) and then my Dad led me “down the aisle” (over the grass *lol*), while my special surprise – an medieval music band – played “Women of Ireland” (our favourite tune from the newest Robin Hood movies). We got married by the registrar (and my cousin) and then the party started  :) We didn’t have much of a program, but the day was really, really hot, so everyone enjoyed the cold drinks and some even dipped their toes into the water around the castle. We had to broach the cask and enjoyed the first glasses of cold beer ;)

Then my girls had us build a house of Lego bricks and do a heart (and the date) by nailing a board and then wind yarn around the nails. I found it pretty funny to watch my new husband struggle with the yarn ;)

Afterwards we went around the pond to take the official pictures – loved it there! The light was beautiful and it was so serene… We also took some pictures with the bridesmaids and groomsmen there, which was pretty fun :)

When all pictures were done, we returned to the castle and declared that it was time for dinner, which was a huge barbacue. Afterwards we had some Irish musicians play, there was a bit of dancing (not us) and we also had cocktails :) When we left, I was really, really tired, but also really, really, REALLY happy :) We spent the night at  a local hotel and had an awesome breakfast the next day before returning home.

(Looking at these pictures, my hubby looks so funny to me without stubbles *lol* He usually always has a beard or stubbles ;) )

Yeah, that was my wedding day! <3

And here also comes prompt #20: It’s guilty pleasure time! Shows, books, songs, foods, whatever it may be.

Guilty pleasures - by nachtschwinge

  • shopping, I guess? That is scarfs, cardigans, jewellery and handbags especially :)
  • music by Taylor Swift, musicals and Glee
  • the movie “Mammamia”…watching it almost everytime I cook something fancy *lol*
  • Disney movies :)
  • coffee the way my Grandma makes it: with lots of hipped cream on top!
  • a whole bag of chips with garlic dip now and then…
  • comfort food: pizza, burger, pasta, but also salad and yoghurt with fruits and cereals!
  • lots of TV shows…like Sherlock, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Musketeers, Penny Dreadful, Navy CIS,….
  • taking a bath with a good book and an even better glass of wine :)

So what are your guilty pleasures? :)
xoxo Sandra
