My October so far...

I was a little shocked when I realised that it had been 7 months since I last blogged and it was only because I was teaching my class about how to create a blog that I realised how long it had been!!

I thought because of this I would get back in to the swing of things by telling you some of the exiting things that have happened to me this month- this will lead up to many more posts I am sure.

Honeymoon Planning
Just thought Id drop this one in as October is the month with a year to go! James and I have booked our honeymoon and I can't wait!! Not only is the wedding just 10 months away, but this time next year James and I will be getting so excited to go on our honeymoon to Vegas and NY and I honestly am sooooo excited! It truly will be the best honeymoon ever! Shopping, shows, cocktails, shopping.... what more could a girl ask for!!?!?!?

Claireabella Obsessed!
October also signifies the pre-anniversary of when I can FINALLY use my prize from the truly AMAZING Claireabella. I was so fortunate to be chosen by her beautiful daughter to win an Original Claireabella (my second) and I struggled to think of a worthy prize bag. But then it hit me, I decided that I would choose something that I could look forward to using when married and I am sure you will agree it is BLOOMIN' AMAZING!! It's just a shame that I have to wait a year to use it... not sure if you can see but the bag 'I'm' holding has Vegas and NY on it and I am also holding a Tiffany and Co. bag too.... Truly beautiful and fantastic- Just a shame it is a year until I can use it, Claire has truly outdone herself again!

October 1st 2012
Probably the best day of the year (not including the proposal)! Today was the day that I became an Auntie!! James' sister Lianne gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Jake, and he really is the most truly gorgeous thing I have ever seen. His little fingers, beautiful face, gorgeous locks and locks of hair, not only make me broody... but make me just want to cuddle him so much!!

He is already the most spoilt little boy in the world... imagine what it's going to be like for him at Christmas!!

Cirque Du Soleil- Immortal Michael Jackson

Now, I was very apprehensive about going to see this as Cirque Du Soleil is something I have wanted to experience for a long time, and as James and I have said about going when on honeymoon I was really interested to have a look at the touring Michael Jackson show at the O2.
I have to be honest... I was sitting through the first half a little disappointed by the lack of 'Cirque', I was impressed when some routines were shown but they were few and far between... my friend and I even contemplated leaving at the interval but decided against it as the tickets were so expensive so we decided to hang on!
And aren't we glad we did!? The second half was amazing in comparison- full of 'Cirque' and the smiles on our faces made it clear how impressed we were! The movements were fantastic, clear and astounding... I loved it and would definitely go and see another Cirque Du Soleil- in fact 'O' in Vegas is the next on my hit list (see I keep dropping this honeymoon in).

Idina Menzel
Now, my month just keeps getting better and better! Saturday of this momentous weekend of Cirque Du Soleil, was accompanied by my most favourite person ever, and her name is Idina Menzel!
Idina is a Broadway star from NY who has been in films, Glee... and in my CD player non stop for ages now! I was so sad when I heard that she was coming over to London last October because I hadn't realised and was worried there would be no tickets left- luckily for me James is so lovely he said he would come with me, and I couldnt believe it- we got tickets. Now Idina has the most amazing voice and was a treat to watch!!
When I heard she was over here again, I didn't need to be asked twice (and neither did James as he said he'd come with me again). We went to see her and I was just amazed! Idina, being the first ever Elphaba in Wicked, sang some of her favourite show tunes and some new material (which was amazing!) I had the most amazing night, this lady gives me shivers and I have been so fortunate to have been able to see her twice now and can't wait for the third! A truly spectacular night... and weekend!

Wedding Dress Fitting
Finally (apart from half term- thats pretty exciting and just around the corner) the most amazing part of my month. My wedding dress has been delivered- now obviously I can't post pictures on here (no matter how much I want to) but this dress has got to be the most beautiful and magical dress in the world! It pulls me in soooooo much and it makes me feel beautiful- absolutely magic! I cannot wait to share with you the pictures but until next August you will have to wait- instead here is a pic of the most beautiful flowers and colours that will be complimenting my amazing dress! I cannot wait!!

Well there you go, I am looking forward to getting back in to this blogging, especially with the excitement of Christmas just around the corner. I have many more exciting things coming up and also just the pleasure of Christmas Shopping and List Writing too.

I hope everyone is well! Thanks for reading
Mrs Mc-To-Be
