It’s hard to believe that we were married 3 and a half weeks ago! It seems just like yesterday that we were planning and getting really nervous. I’m so happy now that we are married, and the wedding is over. I can’t count the millions of times that I have said to Scott ‘I’m so happy that we’re married!’, while just lounging around the house. Sounds corny but it’s so true.

The wedding went really well. We even have our pictures back from our photographer! I don’t have the internet at home yet so no pictures will be on the blog until I get the internet. It’s torture waiting, I know. 🙂

Gosh I don’t even know where to start writing about the wedding! Maybe I’ll wait until I have pictures, so I can put words to my pictures and I’ll know what to write.

I’ll post one picture of our cake at the wedding (taken by a guest) with this comment..

“What is wrong with this picture”

PS the honeymoon was perfect! More on that later as well, when I have access to my pictures with the internet.

It’s the Weekend – Time to Relax! September 7, 2007

TGIFHappy Friday y’all!

We have some cool links for you today, a blog promotion tip, and – the best – ANTICIPATION! Kate and Scott’s Stag and Doe is this weekend. The planning and preparation is pretty much over. Judging from the last Stag and Doe we all went to, there will be some crazy pictures resulting. Plus, we’ll tell you how to plan a super-successful stag and doe / buck and doe / jack and jill / wedding social. Definitely the most entertaining way to celebrate and help fun your wedding!

Blog Promotion Tip

Are you on Facebook, and have a WordPress blog as well? Let your friends know about it by adding the WordPress app to your profile. We found a blogger who posted great instructions on adding the WordPress app to your profile. Thanks, Thomas!

Erica, Micaela, and Katelyn have it on their profiles, and FiveBlondes has seen a good amount of traffic come through from our friends clicking through. Thanks, friends! Now, go tell your friends who don’t know us, ok? OK!

Outblush

When it comes to shopping and fun finds, there’s one website I check every day: Outblush is “The Shopping Blog for Women” – what could be better? Outblush always finds the cutest and trendiest clothes, accessories, home decor, gadgets, books, and more! They have a newsletter and RSS feed so you can get the best stuff, however you want it. What’s your favorite item this week?

E-mail Icon Generator

Our fun online find this week is a custom email image generator. This is great tool to use for your blog or website – put it in your sidebar if you want to let people know how to reach you, without falling prey to an evil SPAM-BOT trolling the web for your email address! If you have an address with a common provider such as Gmail or Hotmail (check out the list!) , you can get an image with their logo on it. This is fantastic for people with visual memories! If your email provider isn’t represented, no worries – you can get a custom button made, and even pick your own colours. I made two – one for our GMail addy, and a custom button for our fiveblondes [dot] ca address.

Why don’t you email us? We’d love to hear from you.

Have You Bought Any Crap Lately?

 FENGHUA, CHINA—Chen Hsien, an employee of Fenghua Ningbo Plastic Works Ltd., a plastics factory that manufactures lightweight household items for Western markets, expressed his disbelief Monday over the “sheer amount of shit Americans will buy.”

OK, it’s The Onion, but isn’t there some truth to it?  As a society, we have soooo much stuff!  I have things I can’t bear to throw away, although I have no idea where/when I got it.  Then, when I do decide to throw it away, I feel guilty for helping fill some landfill somewhere.

 “I hear that Americans can buy anything they want, and I believe it, judging from the things I’ve made for them,” Chen said. “And I also hear that, when they no longer want an item, they simply throw it away. So wasteful and contemptible.”

Essentially…yes. Unless it can be sold on E-bay.  Which creates packaging waste and has a bigger carbon footprint than you might imagine, considering the exhaust from vehicles used to transport the item to its destination.

Maybe it’s time to simplify.
