2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,500 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 9 years to get that many views.

Cocooning and Spooning

I have totally neglected this blog and I feel so guilty.  I loved blogging about my wedding and now…I love being married but how do I write about that all the time.  I guess what I will try to do is continue to add more photos and helpful hints about wedding planning every once in a while.

Thanx to everyone for their dear comments.  I really appreciate it!

The Menu

We had a very intimate reception in the Vista Suite of Mandalay Bay. It turned out wonderfully. Here I want to highlight the food. We went with Cravings Catering at the recommendation of my Wedding Coordinator. I am so glad we did. They were wonderful. I booked them 2 weeks before my wedding and they were so accommodating and helpful. Gotta love Vegas.

I chose Mary with Chocolate Swan to make our cake. She was great. We dropped by unexpectedly to do a tasting the day before our wedding (I wanted some semblance of standard planning normalcy) and she gave us a sample of the Devil’s food with Chocolate Buttercream frosting. I was in heaven. It was so delicious. I knew my cake would be even better because the flavor of the regular buttercream would really bring out the flavor of the chocolate cake. Chocolate Swan was very quaint and cute. The desserts all looked amaze-a-zing!

Our cake was small but it packed a punch. It was the best wedding cake I have ever eaten and I’m not just saying that.

I’m Married

So, no more wedding planning.  Thank goodness.  I’m over it.  Everything turned out great.  I fit into my dress.  The chapel was gorgeous.  The reception suite was bomb.  The cake was amazing.  The food was great and the whole thing rocked hard.

I still have to write thank you cards, upload pics and work on a married bio.  Me and the hubster have a lot of unpacking, rearranging, decorating and improving to do around the house.  Hopefully, I can focus back on school and my business.

Wow!  Being in love and officially hitched is great – so far!!

found my earrings (will buy soon – in gold),


ordered veil swatches from veilshop.com,

put the deposit down on the cake from the Chocolate Swan (it will look sort of like this but with two tiers, gold ribbon and more relaxed rose placement for the topper)

choc sawn cake


paid for our reception/wedding night suite – the Mandalay Bay Vista Suite.  They faxed me pics of it and it is major!  I feel so blessed.  Whew!  I’ve never enjoyed spending money as much as I have today.

But I did not overspend.  Everything is within the budget.  Just wanted to clarify.  ;P
