hi my friends...

just wanted to poke my head in and say "HEY"...i'm not feeling well...and life's a little on the stressful side right now...there is just sooooo much going on, that i feel i can't catch my breath as of late...this is why i haven't been around lately...i'm definitely keeping up with blogs, although i am not commenting as much as i would like to...and i just don't have the energy to put together a post...

right now my life looks like this:

*trying to book a venue for our wedding in september/october 2011
*trying to find a place to live
*getting over whatever sickness has been torturing me for the last 2 weeks
*babysitting my brothers (i know right?) and parents' pup and house while they are vacationing in italy
*trying to spend time with my jacks and my love
*trying to keep my life organized
*attend my cousin's wedding on september 11 (hopefully i will be well by then)
*pick up my parents from the airport september 11
*appointment with old mill (wedding reception venue) september 12

it may not seem like much...but for me it is way too much...i feel as though i am drowning...

i promise to be back soon with some fun posts...and some new food...but until then please remember to enter my giveaways...

  1. I hope you start feeling better Nelly and that things in your life become less stressful. Hopefully the list becomes shorter for you soon!

    The songs I share with my love are these two..

    Simply Red: You make me feel brand new (Our Wedding Song)

  2. sounds like life has been busy. i sincerely hope you feel better soon. take care of yourself.

  3. Aw, poor Nelly! Being sick makes any list a million miles too long. Hope you're well soon. I'll have to think of some songs. My brain isn't functioning at full capacity at the moment. ;)

  4. No wonder you are feeling overwhelmed with so much going on. Hope things quiet down, and you feel better soon. {{{HUGS}}}

  5. feel better soon, nelly bear! sending you lots and lots of love and hugs and healing wishes.

    i think 'con te partiro' is one of the prettiest songs ever - i actually thought of you and your wedding when i heard it a few weeks ago!=)

    and 'fools rush in' is so pretty for the first dance... and 'at last'...

    when i was a kid 'eternal flame' was my favorite love song.=)

    celine dion's 'a new day has come' moves me to tears... and canon in d...

    L.O.V.E. - Nat King Cole
    Can't Help Falling in Love with You - Elvis (or other cover)
    Just the Way You Are - Billy Joel
    From This Moment - Sania Twain

  8. Hey hun!! Sorry you are feeling overwhelmed! Weddings are insane so don't think you are alone!!

    My wedding song was Jason Mraz- I'm Yours.
    All the best with everything and I hope you get some rest really soon!

  9. Hey Nelly,

    I can totally relate to the busy/stress time you are experiencing lately. Hope you feel better soon and that things slow down for you. Keep on loving the raw foods and all will be well <3 :)

  10. Sending lots of hugs your way. I hear ya on being overwhelmed and stressed out! I feel like that a lot lately! But I have faith I will get through it and you will too!!!! xoxo

  11. Sending you lots of love!!! xoxo Maybe it's the changing of seasons because I feel totally overwhelmed and stressed out right now too! :( Hope you feel better soon sweet pea! Thinking of you! xoxo

  12. hon just reaching out and sayin hi and that dont blog, dont comment, dont read blogs UNLESS you have the time and it's a joyous, non stressful event. You have plenty of other stressors, blogging shouldnt be one of them.

    Hang in there babe!!!



  13. Hi Nelly,
    Wedding planning IS stressful, but hang in there! It gets easier once the major decisions are made. If and when you're feeling up to it, I'd love to hear if you're including any veg/raw foods in your wedding.

    My wedding song was Better Together, by Jack Johnson, followed by a surprise number with It Takes Two by Robe Base. See it here:

  14. You have a beautiful day too!

    Good luck with everything! Busy, busy! You'll get it all done. ;)
