Bells are ringing

i'm one of the gals who never dreamed about her wedding - how it would be, what theme would take place, nor if i ever wanted to take the plunge - but here's some eye candy i'm all about for 'wedding' stuff -- maybe i'm starting to dream a little - i said DREAM - not READY!  *just to make clear*

love the mix of white and yellow gold - 3-4 ct diamond in the middle would be wonderful :o)

vintage looking - am i'm loven'! - i mean seriously this is a gem!

if i ever take the plunge - small and intimate is my choice! - i mean SMALL too - only the intimate people in our lives - No 300+ guest list for me - it's just not who i am ..

i'm obsessed with willow tree's would DIE to wed in between them!

a must with all the guests!

oh yes - this is a MUST for me!

perfect Brides maid dresses - can wear over and over - and doesn't scream brides maid - which i loathe those dresses!!!!

DREAM bouquet for my wedding! - emeralds to represent my birth stone as well as my parents - plus my "something blue" (since all my emeralds were stolen when my parents house was robbed)

i love the lace back of this dress - very vintage feeling - i haven't found an IT dress - but i do know i hate satin - and i'm all about boho, hippie, couture, feathers kinda' girl - a 1 of a kind dress would only work for me ..

my "something blue" by Loubs.

my kind of a honeymoon!

i'm NO where near walking down any isle - but the thought lately has crossed my mind - what is a girl go do?


Dad Update:
my Dad ended up getting a 6 hour blood transfusion today - the hospital wants to release him tomorrow - but he is suppose to be IN the hospital for physical therapy for 2 weeks - so we are trying to get that fixed - all of our houses have WAY too many steps for him to even THINK about climbing - but i'm just so proud of him sticking through all of this and all the pain and making it work for him - i'm literally SO proud of my Daddy! - he's NOT a hospital/help type of guy - so we shall see tomorrow what my Mom and myself can do to keep him in SOCH for another 2 weeks!

and PS last night i gave my Mommy a mani and pedi treatment - girls nights with my Mom are so fun - loven' my new life!!!! -- and i forgot to mention yesterday Nov 1 marks the day when myself and my parents were eating dinner around 8pm and the phone RINGS - her oncologist called from her home in a panic - my life has changed ever since then - so for the next 12 months i'm flipping this life of mine right back!
