Wedding and grab bags OPEN + temp freebie

Wow, this last week has been a real blur. Time flew by so fast running around with all the wedding prep and getting venue/flowers/bouquets and our place to stay sorted. It didn't all go that smoothly, but then again it is ME we are talking about.. lol.

I used my sons old 'fishing bakkie/truck' while I was in PE (renting a car for a week is rather an expensive option and well wheels are wheels right?).. it's old and rusted but I love driving it because it's FUN, small and zippy....BUT the drivers side door does not open via a KEY (it's bust).. so you have to open the passanger door and lean/climb through and open the drivers door from the inside ( you're getting that picture everytime I go somewhere - BWAHAH)..... It didn't worry me ( hey it's part of the cars character).... UNTIL the night after our 'pre wedding dinner' and while opening the gates of my mom's driveway with the car running of course so I can use the headlights to see what I'm doing..... I hear 'click'. oh hell NO..  lol..... the door and swung shut (due to angle of driveway) and had just clicked closed.. I know I LOCKED the passenger door as I'm driving by myself.. the keys are in the ignition with the car still running and both doors do NOT open!.. lol. No problem to me, I break into my own car through the canopy at the back and squeeze myself through the little side window into the back which I have now forced open..(my mom is now starting to laugh). I force the small window open into the 'main drivers area but my boobs are too big to squeeze through! LOL.. I manage to get a piece of long wood to pry the passenger door open thank goodness and had to then re-climb OUT the back and hop through the front to get the car parked.. It did leave me with some very interesting bruises that I still have today actually! lol

The Wedding was out of town and the cabin we had rented for the weekend decided to blow it's geyser ON the day of the wedding! I was sitting making up Ants(bride) and the bridesmaids bouquets outside when Nathan came running to say water was pouring out by the bathroom.. EEEEK. Like seriously?? So a plumber was called and the owner of the cabin gave permission to have the geyser replaced. I HAD to be at the venue by 2pm as there was still all the final arrangements to put in place before 3.30pm. Know when I got water??? OMG, 1pm!! I had 1hr to dress, get my hair done and makeup and get to the venue to meet up with the minister and get the catering times sorted. BWAHAHAHAH- yeah, I wasn't very happy but it wasn't 'my' day it was my dear friend Ants...At least I managed to get myself nearly all together. ( I also stuck my foot right through my stockings in the mad rush - so lilly white legs + bruises were just going to have to do!) lol.


My dear friend who looked STUNNING and radiant on her wedding day. ( That's her bouquet I made which she LOVED... we had used Protea's through the decor too)


Being Matron of honour and the Master of Ceromonies for the night had me running around a lot.. I am NOT used to anything with a heel as I am a 'flatties' girl through and through.. and what do I do?.. I fall in a small hole while having photo's taken and my foot ached a bit but oh em gee... it killed me later through the night. Swelling up like a balloon -you know when you are too scared to take the shoe off incase you can't get it back on scenario? BWAHAHA- well nothing small about me. I actually sprained my foot and have not managed to get a shoe on this whole week. Nothing like a good excuse to sit in slippers all day- hee hee


(photo's thanks to guests/friends on Facebook- lol)

You, my dear, are a hoot! LOL You're cute as a button, too! What a good friend you are! From the looks of the couple, you pulled it off beautifully!
Terrific template! I do thank you!

You still managed to look beautiful after all of that. Do you have the nickname of Klutzy Kim as it seems you always hit the high points or maybe I should say low points? Thanks for the great template, much appreciated. Take it easy and rest now.

Well sweetie sound like something I would do except big boobs wouldn't be a problem. Ha! You are just way to young to have a son getting married. Holy Cow! Love the photos and layout.
Also thanks for the FAB template!
