Can you guys keep a secret?

Well, I know it seems I've dissappeared from the blogosphere, but I haven't entirely...
I've been working pretty hard on a brand spankin' new blog.
You know, since I'm all growns up and a married woman and all. ;)

I promise to be back here soon with my new blog address.
I hope you'll still care.

Until then I'm sending you all lots of LOVE!

We're Baaack!

Okay so we may have already been home from the honeymoon for 2 full days now, but this gal had to get the house in order before I even thought of sitting on my tushy to blog.

Sooo, the honeymoon....
Thanks to an issue with my passport we had to change plans at the last minute to travel to the US Virgin Islands instead of Mexico.

We ended up at the Wyndham Sugar Bay in St. Thomas which we lovingly dubbed the Shithole. :)

Regardless of where we were it was so very nice to be with my new husband in a sunny place with absolutely nothing to do but be together.
No, I wasn't sad to say goodbye to our wax paper sheets or Ilma, the world's unhappiest bartender, BUT I was sad to say goodbye to entire days spent with Mr. P.
It was pure bliss.

We decided this trip was only our pre-honeymoon and hopefully come our one year anniversary we'll be poolside and carefree again, but this time in good ol' Mexico (say it like your supposed to and that rhymes).

For now I'm back to baking and reading your blogs.
I'm ever so excited to catch myself up.

Then I promise to catch you all up on the past three fun filled weeks.

Much Love!

Call me Houdini...

because that was some disappearing act!

Okay, that was my attempt at a lame joke to lighten the mood.

I'm so sorry I completely disappeared off the face of the earth aka got wrapped and absorbed by final wedding plans.

3 things I'd like you to know:

1. I am now officially Margaret Emily Diaz-Llaneza

2. Our wedding was better than I ever could have imagined.

3. I promise in the next week or so to catch you up on everything-pictures included!

Oh and we without a doubt have the best friends and family imaginable.
Thanks a million times over to those of you who were there with us. You are the reason this weekend will always stand out in our minds as one of the best of our lives.

My dear blog friends who I haven't had the pleasure of meeting in person, I look forward to sharing the details of this amazing time with you.

I'm not quite certain the direction this blog will go (although it hasn't really been a wedding blog for somewhile), but I'll figure it out as I go.

Because one things for sure, okay maybe this makes 5 now, I've freaking missed you!

Heading on our honeymoon tomorrow, to St. Thomas now (yeah, that's a story you'll hear about soon), but I plan to be poolside and filling you in soon.

All my love,

Emie Diaz-Llaneza

this weekend

One of my lovely friends (and a bridesmaid in my wedding) is getting married this Saturday.

Tomorrow morning after picking up our marriage license (in South Carolina) I'll be on my way to Jekyll Island, GA with sistah and Chels.
Our fiance's don't have the day off so they'll be driving down later in the day.

I can't for the 5 hour trip with two of my favorite ladies!

I can't wait to check into our room that is certain to be darling.

I can't wait to pig out at tomorrow's lowcountry boil.

I can't wait to explore the grounds of this beautiful resort.

But most importantly I can't wait to celebrate the marriage of Missy and Matthew.

Hope you all have a weekend full of love.

Today was a good day.

Early this afternoon fiance and I set out to obtain our marriage license.
On arrival I said in a cheery tone, "we are here to get our marriage certificate".
Only to learn that you have to be married in the state of North Carolina to obtain one in the state of North Carolina.
No biggie, tomorrow we'll cross state lines to get our South Carolina marriage certificate.

Then I dropped off all 150 baby cakes with Missy's fiance Matthew.
Matthew then gave me a gift that my sweet, sweet friend Missy purchased for me.

Isn't this the cutest lil' sign you've ever seen!?
I swear Missy is one of the most thoughtful gals you could ever know and I'm unbelievably lucky to have her as my friend.
This weekend we'll be attending her wedding at Jekyll Island and I truly can't wait for the celebration.

After that exchange I treated my sweetie to lunch. We hit up Ru San's for the lunchtime sushi buffet.
Nothing better my friends.

We then found Mr. P some snazzy shoes to wear with his snazzy suit.
Man, he's going to look so handsome!

Then he dropped me off at my sisters salon where I had my hair colored and highlighted.
It looks so very pretty.
*thank you to my very beautiful, talented sister! xo

Now I'm home watching Nie Nie on Oprah with happy tears in my eyes.
She's so incredibly inspiring.

Oh and I should tell you real quick that we have a new Rehearsal Dinner venue.
We'll have cocktails in this adorable courtyard at Charleston Place Hotel...

followed by dinner in their Palmetto Room.
Crisis averted.

Now if you'll excuse me I need to go prepare myself for tonight's dance lessons.
See you tomorrow sweet friends.
