A lil' bit of this and a lil' bit of that....

It's cold!!!!!! I know that the fact that I live in Uganda you'd think that I cannot be serious but I am. It's soooooo cold! And being at work does not help one bit. You see, it's been so hot here. So hot that some people were suggesting that we should step out of our houses in nothing. We even got text messages from the Ofice of the Prime Minister warning us of a drought and telling us to store up food. And then it happened. It rained! It started slowly at first and we thought it would be the usual drizzle that would not even quench the earth's thirst. But that was not the plan. It has been raining for the last 5 days. Hence the cold.

Quite frankly, I prefer the cold to the heat. But I wish I was not at work so that I could curl up in the couch with a nice cup of tea and watch a good movie.. I'm extrememly thankful for the rain because, as my blog title will tell you, we needed it! Our crops were not doing too bad but they sure did need some relief.I was fed up of the dust too. Well, now it's muddy but that is a lot better than dust because it does not get stuck to everything in the house.

Another thing that this week has brought was a CLIENT!!!!! In this post I wrote that I want to start up a wedding planning business. Well, the Lord provided my first clients. Isn't He good? I'll keep you posted. I'm really excited because they are a really sweet couple and they want a really sweet, intimate and fun wedding. Yay!!!

This week, my TDH hubby and I made 10 months in marriage. All I can say is that I love that man more than I ever have and I am beyond thankful that the Lord brought him into my life. It's been, still is and will forever be blissful to be his wife.

I hope you are all having a lovely week :-)

Weekend recap

I'm well aware that the weekend is long gone but I've been having trouble with my internet and I just had to do a recap of the weekend! I had a lot of fun :-)

My hubby's co-worker got married on Saturday and it was a fantastic wedding! Made us want to get married all over again! The decor was stunning - a winter wonderland theme in Uganda!!!!! hahahahaha! Funny right? Well the bride and groom have both lived abroad for a while so I guess that sort of explains it. The bride looked stunning, the groom looked smitten, the cake was delicious, the speeches were lovely and the reception hall was breathtaking! Here are some photos...

The fabulous reception area

The entourage table - gorgeous!!!!!!


Entry way

Don't you just love how she makes that gown work? She looked so elegant!

The cake - chocolate and vanilla yum!!!

The first dance

I just had to take a photo in this dress :-)

My TDH farmer :-) Love ya honey!!

The next day we went to church and then I made fabulous chicken for lunch but forgot to take photos :-( So I will give you the recipe the next time I make it and take photos - deal?
After lunch we went to see my nephews and niece- I had missed them like crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My little baby is all grown up and I was amazed at how much he has changed!!! Here are some photos of my babies...

Baby Jojo is so big now

This is Jojo looking at photos of himself on the computer heehee - the kids these days!

Tomorrow, my brothers and parents are coming over to spend the day with us and I'm excited to have them here with us before my hubby and I run away to our lovely resort. Yay!!!!!!!!! Not yet sure what I'm going to cook though :-(

Project wedding planning

I love weddings!!!! Everything about them gets me excited! The flowers, colour scheme, dresses, gown, decor, cake, vows, RINGS!!!!!!!, music - everything!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really want to make them a apart of my life by becoming a wedding planner. So in order to prepare myself for the task I helped a few friends of mine with the decor for a wedding they were doing on Saturday. They were the ones behind all the planning and design ideas so I got to learn a lot from them. I had so much fun doing it and the room looked really good when we were done. These are some photos of the hall both during and after.

One of the entourage tables - loved the detail on the organza

The lights and flowers behind the head table
I enjoyed every bit of helping with the decorating and I learnt quite a lot too. Especially about where I can find good materials at a good price and who I can use to do what. In Uganda, weddings are no small affair but this wedding was a lot smaller than most with only 300 guests so it was a nice start to my learning experience. I'm so grateful to my friends for letting me join them. I can't wait to actually start planning weddings. Planning my wedding was easy coz I knew exactly what I wanted but I'm up for the challenge!!!!! And I'm really excited about it.
