Knick Knacks

First, I want to say a big thank you to Chobani for choosing me as their 1st featured blogger for 2011. Want to learn 3 things about a Healthy Coconut, check it out here.

Also, thank you to all the Chobani fans who stopped by and found my little corner here in the blogosphere. If you haven’t entered my Chobani giveaway, you still have time, it will end tomorrow Saturday.

I am addicted to roasting vegetables lately, especially broccoli. I put a little garlic gold oil mix, plus a little salt + pepper. Roast it on 350 until done, around 20 mins. I like to make so it’s still a little crunchy.

Wedding Planning

Now that the holidays are behind us, the wedding planning has picked up and is now in full swing.

I haven’t really felt any stressed during my planning yet, I have it easy in that we chose to do a destination wedding. While it has it advantages, there are a few disadvantages. You see, I like knick knacks and I love sentimental things. I want to bring A LOT of stuff to Puerto Vallarta for my wedding. But there are some challenges when you are limited with your luggage space and weight and especially going thru customs. I need to keep it to a minimum, so that we don’t stress out travelling to our destination.

I keep reminding myself that even without the extra things I want to bring for the wedding, getting married at the beach surrounded by family and friends is all I really need at the end of the day.

Here’s a glimpse of what my wedding day will look like. I have it printed and posted it so I can see it everyday. It is so peaceful and it helps keep me grounded.  It serves as a reminder of what the day will be all about.PV-Wedding25

I have been gathering information and pictures to send over to my wedding coordinator in Puerto Vallarta. This week’s project is flowers.

I want tropical, but also romantic which to me means orchids and flowers with soft petals. My favorite one in this picture is the middle one on the bottom. So colorful! I hope the florist can re-create it.
