Life, Wedding and Slimming World Update

So you may or may not have noticed I've been a bit MIA for a few months which I can only apologise for. In truth I needed a bit of a break and trying to juggle life, the wedding, my new diet and work was all getting a bit too much so I decided to take some time off from my blog/social media and get my self sorted. Happily I am back on the straight and narrow now and I'm ready to get my blog back on track.

So first update, life! Things are good, we've had a busy few weeks but we've been in our house for a year now, can you believe it, and it couldn't feel more like home. We've still not got any curtains which I'm sure the neighbours love but we're so indisicive that we can't choose between blinds, curtains or shutters. We'll get there…..eventually. Dave and Rocky are both their normally miscevious selves. Dave has been socialising a lot more with Dan's Mum's Dog Bertie and they have become best of friends. When we take them out on walks they walk side by side, sniff the same things, bark at the same things and both try to trip Dan and I up with the leads!

The wedding has been keeping us busy, we've surprisingly done so much. the venue and church are booked, we've sorted our honeymoon and I've been busy making lots of decorations for the reception. I've made some tea lights to place around the room and some photo banners to place in the main room, if you would like to see some of the things I am making then let me know in the comments below and I can do some wedding DIY posts. It's scary how the price of things go up when you place the word wedding in front of them. I always knew weddings were expensive but I had no idea they were this expensive! We've got a catering tasting next weekend which Dan is more than excited about, I'm not sure the scales at Slimming World are going to be as friendly the following week though. There is still so much to do and we've only got 10 and a half months to go….now that's scary.

And finally Slimming World. I've been doing Slimming World for 5 months now and I've lost a total of 2 stone 5 pounds which I'm really happy with. I'm so determined to lose 2 pounds this week to get my 2 and a half stone award on Wednesday so I've been sticking to plan and getting in some body magic which means the dogs have been getting plenty of walks. I'm really enjoying the diet and as cliched as it sounds I really don't feel like I'm dieting. People constantly tell me how different I look but I can't see it as much as I could a couple of months ago. My enagement ring is extremely lose and at the point where I may have to switch it to another finger. I think I can't see it because I haven't brought any news clothes yet and I'm still shying away from cameras, to be honest I just need to get a grip and embrace the size I am. I'm about 1 stone 5 pounds off my goal weight which I am hoping I can reach by Christmas. When I reach it I'd like to lose another 7 pounds but as long as I reach my goal weight I'll feel happy to walk down the aisle the weight I am.

I think we're all caught up now! I can't wait to get posting and I hope you will all enjoy reading them again.


  1. Welcome back, Aimee! sometimes you do need to take a step back and focus on what's really important - there's no point juggling too much and stressing yourself out more than necessary! It sounds like you're really busy as well - how exciting that there's less than a year left until you're Mr and Mrs!


    p.s. well done on your Slimming World progress - that's absolutely fantastic, and good luck keeping it up! *inserts flexing bicep emoji*

    1. Hi Charlene, thanks for your message. It's so nice to be back in the 'blogging world.' Missed talking to other bloggers here and that feeling of putting a new blog post out is just priceless. So glad I took a bit of time off! I know, the time if flying by and I had no idea how much there was to do for this wedding :) xxx

  2. Better to take time out than stress over things! Well done on the SW progress, that's awesome!
