A bit of a catch up!!

Well, hello!! How are you all? I hope you're all having a fantastic bank holiday weekend despite the rain!!
It's very weird for me to be at home this weekend in August- I usually go to Leeds festival every year and get rained on for four days but with going to America I didn't get a ticket this year and I'm kinda glad considering the weather!! I love Leeds festival and I was kinda sad I couldn't go this year but I had an amazing time last year and I think we've sort of done it now.
So this morning I did the unthinkable- I cut off my Leeds wristbands!! You've probably seen them on my outfit posts- one green, one gold, one blue. Well this morning I just thought, you know what, I've had enough!! So off they went!! Unfortunately I have a big white mark on my wrist now where they were when I had my spray tan last week!!

So Friday was a lovely day which was great because it was my cousin Rob's wedding!! It stayed nice all day and I had a lovely time. He's the first one of us grandchildren to get married which is kinda weird- it really makes you think about growing up and getting older. I for one am nowhere near ready for marriage any time soon, but speaking to my best friend Steph yesterday, a lot of people our age seem to be thinking about it. A lot of her friends at home are in long-term relationships, whereas out of our group at uni only one of us is in a relationship. I think I'm just at that time of my life where I want to be selfish. I want my degree, I want my masters and I want to work hard and get a good job. I'm all for marriage and babies but I want to do everything I can now and save all that for later.

I actually managed to get some quite good photos from the wedding- I don't actually have many photos of me with my family so it was nice to take some on such a nice occasion.

Mummy and I


You're guessing where this is going right? My mum and dad and I.


My nan and I 

Before I continue, let me tell you a little bit about my nan. This woman is amazing. Seriously. We lot my grandad about 13 years ago now and we didn't think she'd cope. They were inseparable. They did everything together. But now she is the most strong, independent woman I've ever met. She did a degree aged 70 and still runs her own business at 78. She is on a number of boards and committees in the local area, including boards at the local hospital for the NHS. She is the most fascinating and intelligent person I know.

And here I am with my dad's parents- my amazingly crazy Irish grandparents.

I had a lovely day and I'm so glad I could be there!! Rob is amazing and I'm sure he'll be a fantastic husband to Sarah. He loves her so much. They are a lovely couple and I'm so glad I didn't miss the wedding for being in America. Rob also came up to me after the main course to see if mine was okay because I was the only vegetarian at the meal!!


(Rob made these figures for the cake!! Aren't they amazing!! That's him, his wife Sarah and their dog, Roxy)

I'm sorry that there probably won't be any more outfit posts for a few days. I just have so much to sort out before I go!! My clothes are nearly all packed though and I think I might just have enough weight for everything!! I've tried to be as brutal as possible but I love all my clothes too much :]]] It does mean I have hardly anything to wear between now and leaving though!!

I can't believe I go in 3 days!! I had a horrible dream last night that I had to get a train the airport and I couldn't find my luggage and I missed my stop on the train!! I am getting very nervous now, but I am incredibly excited. I just like to have a plan. I like to be organized. And I have no idea what to expect.

I'm hoping to squeeze another update in later so keep checking back :]]

Oh and if you haven't already read it, a cheeky little bit of self-promotion. My new post over at College Fashion is up now here

What are you up to this weekend? Drop me comment :]]]
