Anyway, lets forget about the past and move onto the future! Allow me to update you on what I've been busy with lately.
First of all, Mr HSH and I got engaged! This special date occured on the 28th of December 2012. It was very low key. We were at his parent's house, house sitting whilst they were interstate. We had left overs for dinner and I was in my pajamas on his old bedroom floor watching home videos when he popped the question. I did not say YES immediately as I wanted to appear less "keen". Alas, there was no doubt that getting married was what I'd wanted to do for a very long time as I had previously pestered Mr HSH incessantly about getting engaged.
We have also been extremely productive and have set a date for the wedding already. It will be in the Summer of 2013. We have booked to have the wedding at Emu Bottom Homestead which is the oldest homestead in Victoria. We are aiming to have an outdoor reception on the front lawn of the homestead but if it rains, we do have the most beautiful but more traditional back up option-the Homestead.

I have also booked Lisa Carter for my hair and make up. She is a western make up artist who specialises in Asian wedding make up and is quite the hit at the moment. I actually won my first competition whilst participating in one of her challenges.
Tomorrow, I'll be visiting Annette of Melbourne in Seddon to have a chat about what design I would want for my dress. The wedding dress shopping experience have left me at a dead end, I have literally tried on over 30 dresses and none have wowed me so far. Perhaps I have been overburdened by my own expectations and prior research. This will not be easy...
