So I claimed to be back, and I am, but there are some differences I'd like to let you know about before completely changing everything. My posts will mostly be the same, but I'll be showing more of my wedding wants and needs. I need a lot of help, and I KNOW I can get it here through all you wedding lovers! I've also changed the name to Forever Loving You. I could never find the right name, and I feel hopefully that's it!

So I'm trying to come back strong, and that may be why its taking me a while. I swear I'm trying though!

Thank you and I love you all!

Well hello world!

It's been many many months, but I am back better than ever because I have a little surprise.


I will be back later with details, about then when I can even write words that make sense, but until then I will be posting. I'm sure I've lost a lot of readers, but maybe I'll be able to get them back?

For those of you who seriously stuck around--your amazing and I love you.

Because I love my bed.

I need your help friends.

I am looking for new bedding. I've looked online a few places, but I haven't really made any decisions. When is the last time you looked through a Victoria's Secret magazine? Welllll, you know those ads where they're laying in a big silky red bed? I want that. Silky sheets. They can be sateen, or satin or whatever. I want them to be soft and pretty. I need to find a matching comforter as well.

I want boys to love my bed. :)

So just comment with some suggestions. I'll really appreciate it. Where did you get your sheets?

Perfect Pair Inspiration: Caroline & Jeff

I just love their story! Great wedding shot by Fred Egan.
Wow. That's all I have to say about that.

How did you two meet? This is going to sound weird, but we met in 1997 online in an AOL Dallas chatroom. lol. (This was back when online chatting was really new and popular.) We were actually supposed to have been set up in 10th grade, but it just never happened then we randomly met online after our senior year of high school, and traded pictures...then met up. You know, stuff that parents these days should really be watching out for!
How long have you been together? We've known each other for 10 years, been together for 8 1/2 years.
How did you get engaged? He proposed to me at The Mondrian Hotel in West Hollywood in June of 2005. He told me we were going to meet a friend of his from out-of-town who was staying at The Mondrian. When we got there, we went up to the "friend's" room and my husband had the key (which for some reason, didn't appear strange to me), and he opened the door. My mouth dropped. I just knew what was coming next. :) The room was filled with lit candles, roses, rose petals and a spectacular view of Los Angeles. Then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was awesome...
What is your favorite thing about each other? Can I list 3 things? lol. He's funny, smart and responsible. He's at work right now, but i'll ask him what his favorite thing about me is when he gets home.
How or when was it that you knew you were in love with each other? Considering the fact that we've been together for 8 years, we went through a lot of changes in our lives. The important thing was that we went through these changes together.
What was the first thing you picked out or decided after you got engaged? I met with a floral designer in October 2006 in Dallas, who then introduced me to my event planner, Rebecca Hackl. I actually ended up using a different floral designer, The Garden Gate.
The hardest part about planning your wedding? Planning a wedding in Dallas, from Los Angeles. Also, the fact that our venue (The Ritz-Carlton) was still under major construction, it was hard for me to really envision what I wanted, as far as my reception went. And usually, if you don't know what your venue is going to look like, it's hard to decide what you want your invitations to look like or even your wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses. These things all set the mood for the reception. We did two or three walk-throughs of the Ritz's ballroom in hard-hats throughout our wedding planning process.
Your favorite thing about your wedding? Blinging out my Christian Louboutin wedding shoes and my invitations from Soolip! Do to getting several questions and comments about where I got my shoes, I am actually accepting "blinging" requests now. You can bling me at: BlingDreams@gmail.com. :)
Where and how did you pick out your wedding dress? Who was with you? This is one tricky. I actually ended up kind of buying two wedding dresses. The first one was in Dallas. I was with my planner, who had referred me to this place. I guess I should have taken my time with this big decision, but I was just so excited. I put down half the deposit ($3k) for a Carolina Herrera gown and veil that no one had yet, but then a day later and back in LA, I realized it wasn't really what I was looking for. So, I basically ended up with a $3k veil, if you want to look at it that way. I finally went to the Monique Lhuillier boutique in Beverly Hills, and told them about my whole fiasco with the boutique in Dallas and they assured me that I could have a fitted gown done in time for my wedding. I ended up choosing a gown ensemble that I had saved on my computer since 2005. It was a Monique Lhuillier bustier and A-line skirt with a satin sash. So, my advice is to always go with your first instincts.
Did you have something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue items? I guess I kind of forgot about this part of the wedding tradition. Ha. Something New: Just about everything. Lol. Something Borrowed: I wore my sister's earrings and bracelet from her wedding.
Any traditions in your family you followed/used? We had the traditional Vietnamese "tea ceremonies" at both the bride and groom's homes. So, I felt bad for my bridal party and photographers (Fred Egan, Jenae Tankersley and Kyle Barnes). They had to wake up at 4:30am, and we had to be ready by 9am for the ceremony to begin. I can safely say that we had a 24 hour wedding day because the reception didn't end until 2am and still later for others.
Did you have a theme for your wedding? I guess it was mostly traditional with a touch of young and modern (but please don't use the word "contemporary").
Colors used? Light Mauves, Peaches, cremes, whites (natural colors)
How did you choose the rings? We chose them together. We figured, we'd been together for so long, so we might as well get something that we both know we'll like. My husband has a the "Love" ring from Cartier, and I have a Tacori ring setting from BBB.
In one word, your day was...perfect.
Favorite moment in the whole day? Our "First Dance"
What was the "first dance" song? "You're Still the One" - sung by my cousin, Lele (She sang it beautifully!)
Where was the honeymoon? We didn't really have time to take one. Right after our wedding, we flew back to LA and started packing our stuff up to move back to Dallas. We did take a trip to Cabo in May, if that counts! :)

So I've been M.I.A lately and I apologize. My relationship ended, and though I am coping, it's a little hard to post about weddings.

But I have some really great posts coming up, so stay tuned!
