Its official!  We finally set a date and picked a location!  Are you ready?  Our wedding will be August 28th, 2010, in Negril Jamaica at the Couples resort!  Yay!

After meeting with a travel agent last week we were almost immediately sold on Negril and the Couples resort.  We are now so excited that we wish we could push the date ahead!  How did we decide?  Well, the travel agent loves Negril and told us how amazing and gorgeous it is.  And, who wouldn’t be sold by a few of these pictures!? :

So, what do you think?  These aren’t exact pictures of the Couples resort, just the Negril area.  But, to check out our exact resort, go here: http://www.couples.com/13cn/index.html

The trip includes everything imaginable, from flights, to drinks and food, to sports and massages.  The wedding itself, with a planner, is even free! 

My question for all of you is, what colors should we use for the wedding?  I want something more tropical than we had planned before.  I am thinking a teal and yellow or berry pink… or?  Help!

My Favorite Place In The World

Nope, not Hawaii.  That ranks very high on my list, but not my top.  My favorite place in the world is my grandparents’ house.  That’s it.  Simple.  Ever since I was little they have had the coziest house (even after moving).  Not only are they interesting people and amazing story tellers, but they have such a great home that brings back memories of staying there as a kid.  They have always been antique collectors, and this is probably why I have an antique obsession.  Their basement is packed with antiques, and trinkets, odds and ends, and so many goodies to look at.  Now that I am older and have a house of my own, they have been slowly passing along some of my favorite gems to me.  We went to their house for Christmas this year, and I ended up coming home with a truck load of goodies.  I hope to someday inherit some more of their great furniture, but I also love the littles they send home with me.  Here are a few of my favorite finds from my recent trip to my favorite place in the world:

 

These are some antique mail boxes from a post office that my grandpa owns.  They are so perfect (and more of those cubbies I love).  We just aren't sure where to put them yet.

This is an old pin cushion made from a hoof that we used to play with as kids.  I know, kinda creepy, but I think it is totally cool!

This is an old lamp that needs some cleaning.  It hangs from the ceiling and you put oil in it.  The oil drips down the clear threads that run from the top to the bottom.  The oil then glows colors when the light bulb is on.  I think it looks kind of like early fiber optics.  Its very neat, but has been stored and needs TLC.  A project!  YAY!

This is a Christmas tree made out of my grandma's antique jewelry.  What a cool idea!  It is framed in a very old frame and there are Christmas lights behind the black velvet.  It is really so cute that I might have to leave it our all year!
