Here she is. Our new little bean. Due in February. So after a first trimester of feeling awful, and being very busy at the same time, I'm finally feeling like myself again. Catching up on everything I missed out on while I was sleeping or whining about how bad I felt or trying to keep up with my 2 year old while all the while wanting to puke all over him!

These ones come from Family Chic and are so adorable (AND EASY!) I just have to try them for our next BBQ or back yard party.
Pick up some great looking cupcake tin liners (these ones are from IKEA) and with an X-Acto knife, make a cross cut in the bottom.
Remove the bulb from your sting of lights, slip the liner on, and replace the bulb. IT'S THAT SIMPLE!
- while the liners are meant for extreme heat, try not to have them directly touch the bulb OR use LED lights which don't give off any heat
- don't leave the lights on for long periods of time unattended
- these won't survive in the rain, so will have to come down

Canada Post is on strike. And if you are like any of the brides I'm working with right now, you are worried about your invitations - will they get out on time? will they get out at all? will it be too late?
The Wedding Co. posted some tips on their blog this morning on what you can do to try and salvage your invitation mailing.
- Be your own courier. Normally hand delivering a wedding invitation is a no-no, but if you don’t have the luxury of time (i.e., waiting a few weeks to see if the strike ends).
- Go online. Send an email to everyone with the details of your event so that they can start to prepare (especially if they have to book accommodations). Let them know the official invitation will follow soon.
- Head south. If you’re inviting guests from the U.S. or abroad, plan a little road trip. Take a nice drive down to the closest mailbox south of the border and your invitations will be sure to arrive on time. **NOTE: this will not help you with invitations that need to go to Canadian residents.
- Pick up the phone. For those guests you feel need a personal touch, you can always give them a call and leave a message or, better yet, engage in a lovely chat.
Hopefully this won't last long and business will be back to normal sooner rather than later. Keep checking the Canada Post website for up to date info.
