I'm having a lazy day, letting the kids watch cartoons while I play on my computer and drink coffee.

 

Jenny2014 you're braver than I am! When we lived on the 12th floor I wouldn't go any farther than the door, even though we had a huge balcony.

Ah no, it wont tak forever! We'l just keep posting random posts like this (a bit sneaky, but hey!), and it will all add up!! 

 

Love a lazy day every now and then!

My fiancé was ready to go somewhere one day and I told him I just needed 3 more posts before we could leave. He thought I was nuts, but now he asks how many I have left. It's become a nightly ritual/game. After each post I announce 8 more, 7 more, all the way down to 0. It's pretty ridiculous! Lol!

Thank you! Yeah, I try to get at least 5 posts a day, only joined last week so dont think Im doing to bad. I know I sort of hijacked this forum as after much deliberation we decided NOT to have a Destination Wedding, but will have an AHR. So Im kind of limited to posts I feel I can respond too... Looking for ideas though for the AHR and somewhere where I can vent my excitement as we are keeping our wedding secret from family & friends.

But after being on this forum for a week, Im starting to feel we should have arranged to have our elopment wedding in Jamaica or even a full blown DW with some guests. I just know OH would freak if I were to mention to him that maybe we should just have a symbolic "non religious" blessing or something like that on the beach. We just arranged the paperwork to have our Civil ceremony here at home, last week. And our wedding plans and honeymoon plans have been around the world about 3 times!

The site is crazy helpful though. I've never been too savvy in party planning.. so planning a wedding was a lot of guess work at first... but now I've gone as far as writing the ceremony script, building my OOT bags, doing iron-ons for my bridal party.... things I probably wouldn't have done without the site....

 

Keep on trekkin....

Will get there! Agree, so many great ideas on this forum!

Renting is almost not worth it anywhere in Southern Ontario, it's insane... We can't afford to rent a real house, but hope to buy one maybe in 5 years. Kind of frustrating.

 

I didn't think about talking money with family and friends. No kidding that would be awkward. Definitely a TA then, I just need to find one. I'm giving myself until January 2014 to have things booked and STD's sent out so I have some breathing room there at least. I think a year is good notice for this kind of thing, right?

 

 

 

Oh you'll get there! You're already at twice what I am lol

I only have a boy, but my friends who has girls often tell me of their attitude! Some of them were real little madams at the age of 4 or 5! 

 

A few years ago when the "boom bust" in Ireland we were considering of emigrating. To me Australia is soo far away (many Irish people emigrating there) so for a while we were thinking of Canada. But it is such a big move (specially when you have children & a house with a mortgage and its NOT a sellers market). I was looking at renting houses in Canada but it looked very expensive! For now we have decided to stay put where we are.

That is so funny. We've talked about moving over to the UK a lot. At this point we're staying here in Canada, but it's still an option for later.

Oh yeah, same here,  we havent completely abandoned the idea of a move either. We'll see what the future brings! 

And Canada is still a good option! Is the cost of living high?

It really depends where in Canada you want to live. Some places have a very high cost of living, and others quite low.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
