A Sneak Peak...

It's a gorgeous day at the pod! Summer may actually be here - just in time for Christmas! The Pohutukawa tree across the street has started to bloom this week - we've been watching it intently for weeks trying to guess who would see the first red blooms. I did! So the tree will be in full bloom for Christmas - a true New Zealand Christmas tree right outside our window.

If it's possible to feel stress because I don't feel stressed - then that's exactly how I feel. The wedding is in just a little over three weeks away and I don't feel a pang of stress. Don't get me wrong, this is exactly what I was aiming for - but I'm surprised that I feel this way.

I thought I would share a few sneak peaks at some of the accessories that I'll be wearing for the wedding - since a few of you have asked... and none of you will be here anyway.

These are my shoes...











And my funky necklace...









And the coolest bathing suit I could ever find!!!! My sister Ann will especially love this. As most of you know - due to my cancer at age 10, I was left with a really long scar down the middle of my tummy. It's never really bothered me and I've always worn bikini's despite the scar. However, since I was young I've always dreamed of finding this exact bathing suit!!!!!!!!! Unfortunately, I don't have the body I had when I was 21. I'm a bit softer in the middle (having a scar this long down the middle of your tummy doesn't help much with muscle tone)... but I still look pretty damn hot - for a 32 year old with two kids :-). This is the best find and I'm so excited about it. Not to mention the fact that it's a size XS!!! That's good for my ego.
So I'll wear this on our honeymoon. We're only planning to do some camping around the East Cape (very remote, mainly Maori populated, not many tourists, and very rugged). So perhaps not the best choice but I don't care. This suit would most certainly be suitable for a place like the Maldives... but I won't be going there this year. :-) But I will one day and this suit is damn well going to fit!
