The wedding

This post is so late that it's not even funny. 

But here you go, pictures and memories of my brother's big day! 

But let's back up a little and share some horrendous pictures of the preparations of the day before. 

Do I need to comment on this one?? I think not! 
What do you see here is me, my sister and my mom with ridiculous stuff on their heads, while my brother and my dad just look pretty! 

But all was worth it because the next day I was able to sport with hair-do: 

I think my mom and my sister looked very spiffy as well!! 

What do you think??? Was the night before torture.....err prep, worth it?? I think, yes! 

You know, we don't get to dress up a lot so I was trying to get some cute and romantic pictures of me and hubby together...... 

Well, I guess my husband had other plans! LOL 

The kids were amazing. Can you imagine being little and going to a foreign country were you don't know anybody and don't speak the language?? Nonetheless, they were precious, well mannered and managed to make new friends! 

And finally, the moment that everyone is waiting for, the picture with the groom and the bride! 

I love, love, LOVE, my family!!!

I've been doing some "Spring"cleaning around the house that has kept me from blogging as often as I'd like.

But boy, it feel so good to go through all the junk that we accumulate and purge the stuff we don't need anymore and make room for the things we now love.

One of the area that neede my attention in the house was the so called "mud room" that got a completely make over.

And since I was there I went through my purse and all the bags I have hanging around filled with stuff and boy!! Did I find the most craziest stuff in my purse!!! Everuthing, from store receipts, to baby wipes, my wallet and my glasses and my ever present compact mirror for quick touch ups.

The House of Bachelorette Sash review!

I know I've been away from my blog for a many days and while I wish I was on vacation the whole time, truth is that I came back few weeks ago and just couldn't unravel the unique emotions I lived in words yet. 

So, I went back to Italy for 2 week to visit my family in occasion of my brother's wedding. While, I've seen my mother and sister during their visit to the States 3 years ago (remember??), I didn't have the chance to see my brother and my father for 7 long years. 
 I didn't know my sister-in-law at all and neither the tiny little baby she just had. 

 Well, before I dig into the wedding party, I want to take the time to talk about the bachelorette party my SIL invited me too. It was not the typical bachelorette party, or at least I think it was not as I never been to one before and I didn't have one for myself before getting married. 
Anyway, I always heard stories of strippers and drunk people, so this was definitely not something like that. My SIL friends organized a tasteful party in a local pub where we ate a wonderful homemade sandwich, delicious cake, listen to music and drank coffee (typical habit for Italy!) 

We had few silly moments with penis-shaped straws and stuffing balloons up our shirts, but aside from that it was just plain fun. 
Mind you, it was only 4 days after I arrived in Italy after a 30 hours here you go the picture with me being super tired!! 

I'm on the right, with my sister in the middle and SIL on the left! 

Before I left from Italy I was contacted from House of Bachelorette to review one of their sash and I was thrilled that they sent me the Super Glam Bride Rhinestone because I already knew who I was going to give it to!! 

The sash is made in-house by their rhinestone artists, and is a fantastic addition to a bachelorette party or bridal shower. 

 It came in the mail in a very sturdy envelope that shows just how much care this company puts in handling their products. Inside the envelope, there was a wrapped package and the sash itself came with little organza bag. 

 I tried taking a picture with the sash of myself, but I married over 10 years ago now and a sash doesn't make a bride. 

 If only I knew somebody that was getting married soon.....oh wait!! 

Doesn't my new SIL look simply beautiful and sparkly with the sash on??? She loved it very much! 

I just wish she lived closer and maybe I could have been the one organizing her party with the many bachelorette party supplies from the

This post contains my opinions only about this company and their product that I was sent to review. Your opinion about this product might be completely different than mine.
