Well.. it's official... we have booked the trips to Vegas. I can tell you we will be visiting in March 2012 and I thought I'd share some photos of the hotel we finally decided on. We were umming and ahhing over so many but this one doesn't suck for location and the suites are just awesome so... it's done!
The Signature at The MGM Grand
When I went last I spent the majority of my days lazing by the pool and totally missed the whole Vegas experience so I don't intend to waste my time there this time. That being said that pool is epic and will no doubt draw me in once or twice. We can use all of the MGM facilities which is nice but the Signature is gated and everything there is reserved for hotel guests so in theory it will be quieter than the rest of the strip hotels. I think we're still set on The Chapel of The Bells for the wedding, I haven't seen anywhere I like more so that's that and the prices are really reasonable. We'll see, there's always time to change my mind.. we may not even book that in advance so it could be whatever we come across over there.
To say we are excited right now would be an under-statement. It feels like we have been waiting for this trip since we met so it will be so appreciated when it's finally here..
I bought another dress option recently so stay tuned for some pictures.. they will go up for the vote very soon!

It occurred to me that out of all of my blogs I blog here possibly the least. This may be because it has the least followers... or perhaps that's the REASON it has the least followers?!
Anyway, I thought I'd do a quick update. Vegas is still the plan, I believe we're looking at the end of march 2012. The baby will be born at the end of November which gives me only 4 months of recovery time. I plan to deliver by c-section like my last birth but this means any exercise or strenuous activity of any kind will have to be put on hold for 6 weeks minimum leaving me with just 2 and a half months to shape up.. eek!
I've heard of lots of different techniques new Mums have tried to shed the lb's after the birth and I will be trying THEM ALL lol. Any you know of? Please share in the comments!!!
We are saving out pennies right now to get the holiday booked and we still have the stumbling block of Lee's divorce to get out of the way before we can say our own I do's but I'm trying to stay positive that that will be done in time... if not, worst case scenario we have a very nice vegas holiday and out off the wedding AGAIN! I'd like to point out at this time that this blog has been so indecisive and sparse for all of these months because divorce is so long winded and tricky when you're on a budget. Had we both been free and single we would have married a year ago but because we weren't it has really dragged on. It's been the source of a lot of frustration for me but I'm letting go now and planning anyway. I have looked at some alternative outfit ideas since I may not be able to squeeze myself in to a little dress. I'm looking at separates right now, a hold me in style skirt and a flowy top just in case I'm not totally back to my pre-baby figure yet.
I would love to see pictures from your weddings, if they were abroad or here, whatever! And if you have any experience of vegas weddings pictures form there would be even better!!!
I just thought I'd check in and let you all (All 42 of you lol) know that I haven't abandoned this blog it's just nothing blog-worthy is really happening right now but as soon as it does I will be here in a heartbeat!!!
