Between Periods

by Destini on June 2, 2011

I have been a bad BAD blogger. Where I have been? Everywhere. Soo many things happening. Life is so jam packed now that this is what happens on a night such as tonight.

Today was Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Vancouver VS Boston. I am a HUGE Canucks fan!!!

My Day

I went to work, worked out, grocery shopped, made dinner.

Period one: While period is happening, I am working on a clients invitations.

Between periods: I vacuum, sweep and feed Tia.

Period Two: I continue working on invites.

Between periods: I put a facial mask on and make spiced carrot muffins.

Period Three: Still working on invites and take out muffins. But it was all worth it…why BECAUSE THE CANUCKS WON GAME ONE IN THE LAST 19 SECONDS OF THIRD PERIOD. LOVE IT!

SEESH boy am I just tired writing this.

What else have I been doing? Here is some hints.

 What’s this?
 Lot’s of bubble wrap?
 If you haven’t guessed!!!!! My stock for my wedding invitations are in. But first must get my clients done!

 What is this you ask? Well this my friends is my NEW KitchenAid Mixer! A gift from my soon to be Mother in-law and Sister in-law!! THANK YOU!!
AND THIS? Well this was just amazing! I made this for my fiances special dinner on Saturday. Lemon-Blueberry Crumble Cake!!

Probably one of the most exciting things this week however have been this!
I can’t believe it still!!! May they be called whatever, all that matters is the NHL is back! I can’t wait to be at games with my dad like we used to when I was younger and to create new memories with my fiance and younger brother. In my family this is an emotional moment. May seem silly to you non-hockey fans. But for me, and for us, it is EVERYTHING.

Bling, Pearl and Elegance

by Destini on May 18, 2011

Sorry I have been MIA for a few days. I have soo much to tell you. But really no time. I promise soon.

This is probably bad, but since I got engaged I spend a lot of time researching wedding EVERYTHING at work. So what am I doing today…

I will be wearing pearls everything. I think a bride in pearls is classic! I am also loving handmade things. Something I won’t see everywhere.

Here are some ideas.



What do you think?

I will accent it all with red roses.I won’t go crazy with the pattern, just enough, but not too much Here is my wedding inspiration board.

Shoes Shoes Shoes

May 11, 2011

Today has been a very long day. I worked all day, went to the gym and did my back workout with some cardio. Came home, designed a Thank You Card for a client and then a Wedding Invitation for another client. Somehow between all that I managed to make myself a quick dinner.   Grilled herb chicken, baked garlic/paprika sweet potatoes, steamed kale and roasted red pepper.  I also managed to try another wine from the festival!  This one was sooo great! I love it! Look at all the colours! I have been researching shoes I wanted for my wedding forever! I was pretty much looking for shoes before I even […]

Momentary Disaster

April 28, 2011

At the end of next month my fiance’s mother will be throwing me a bridal shower. My original plan for a shower was a smaller, more intimate gathering of some of my very close ladies in which I receive some lingerie(note: I actually don’t OWN a single pair of lingerie..Jennifer thinks this is very strange). It appears some more traditional bridal showers are much larger, and include all the females invited to the wedding.  So with much consideration I will be having a larger shower…………….and a intimate shower(yeah that means 2 showers!). One thing I have learned is the 6 months before your wedding, getting much breathing time is very […]

April 7, 2011

I apologize for lack of blogging. Soo much is going on between a sick Fiancé , Wedding planning and our Wedding social. I am honestly losing my mind.  I was able to get some of the projects I had set for myself done…..such as my centerpiece mock-up #2 Centerpiece mock-up #2 Tall round vase, 6mm black ribbon wrapped around the top twice, fogged glass stones and 4 large silk roses with one small in the middle. I love it!!! What do you think? I follow lots of foodie blogs, I have mentioned some before and a constant theme in many of them has been something called Banana Soft Serve ….. […]
