marylebone summer fayre

i hope everyone had a FANTASTIC weekend.

summer time in london means:  street fayre's (fairs); open air theatres; festivals; walks on the south bank (next to the thames) & many more.  that is why i LOVE summer!

i met wayne after work & we went to the summer fair (fayre the old way of spelling it) in marylebone - close to my work.

it was SUPER busy but so much fun.  there was music, organic food stalls, cupcakes, pimms, free drinks, did i mention the cupcakes, cakes, pies, more food, jewellery, clothes...

we really enjoyed ourselves & here is a couple of photo's to proof it

not too long to go anymore...

we are just 7 months (eeek...) away from becoming husband and wife.

and the thought of that just makes me cry
(don't worry it's only happy tears)

just thinking about it makes me...
feel stressed.
and excited.
and so grateful.

i still have so so SO much to do before that day
BUT i just CAN'T wait!!

{here he is posing for me at work - i often get a mms from him to let me know he is thinking of me}

he's the coolest (even with his 'i hate twilight' t-shirt on);
and loving person i know.

and not only do i get to have him as my very best friend, i get to have him as a husband for the rest of our lives!

i am so madly in love with him.

i am actually wishing that the next 7 months will go even quicker!  

our sunny weekend in richmond

saturday was a FANTASTIC sunny day in london
and we decided to head down to richmond to spend it there

we were happy just sitting on the grass,
have a wonderful picnic - just the 2 of us,
and look at all the people.

me all relaxed in the sun

wayne with his favourite t-shirt ('twilight is gay')
wayne bought this as a joke, thinking that it will irritate me because i LOVE twilight
BUT i actually don't mind it - because i know it's only a joke.
the only people who actually are finding it some what amusing are guys & they constantly give wayne comments about it 

our little picnic - carrots, hummus, tomatoes, wine, pretzels & strawberries

the thames running through richmond


sitting in the park - watching cricket

we had so much fun, can't wait for the next sunny weekend to go back to richmond.
(it's been raining from sunday & is suppose to rain for the rest of the week).

thursday ideas

I am so excited to move into our new place.  I just hope that we will learn to love the new area because we have lived in our current area for the past 5/6 years and we LOVE it.  BUT change is good & every area has its own little charm & appeal.

I have been looking on the internet & blogs for ideas to furnish our new place (since we need to buy everything & I mean EVERYTHING).  Currently we only own a chair as furniture.  This makes it exciting & also scary to think we have to start from scratch (and at our age J).

here is a few photos of things I like:
{via:  Escapade}

{via:  desire to inspire} 

I LOVE the white & also the leather idea.  I don’t know how practical white is; but it sure looks pretty awesome.  I also like the wood idea for a table & chairs.

Today is a fantastic summer’s day here in London.  So for lunch time I went to my nearest park at work & had my lunch there.  Here is a few pictures of the park (really busy for 12pm) & also the little elephant display they have in the park.  I only photographed 1 of the elephants but there is about 4 in this park & they are also standing throughout London in parks & alongside the Thames river (an art display).

there is about 250 different elephants throughout london and it is part of the elephant parade to promote the elephant family charity.  this charity's goal is to protect the asian elephants & their habitat.  to see more elephants & more information about the charity, please click here.

have a fantastic THURSDAY!
