So I decided to hang a few photo's together in one place. And I used old wooden frames. I think it looks very lovely!

Breakfast at Dunkin Donuts after I did my daily run!
Watching a baseball game of the Tampa Bay Rays!
Spending the day at Wet’n Wild, couldn’t take any photo’s once we were inside because we were to busy getting on all the rides!
Entrance of Universal Studios
This is the last photo that we took of Universal Studios… Once we got inside, the battery went dead…!
One of the lovely beaches of Florida.
Relaxing at the beach. Usually it was too hot to sit down and we would walk along the shore
We much more enjoyed the pool that came with our holiday home. The temperature was better there and we had it all to ourself!
So, this is the last post of a very nice and unique experience for us: the wedding and honeymoon. Life has gotten back to normal, working, etc. But this is a lovely memory for us and one that’s nice to share with you all!

We stayed for five days in New York but it could have easily been two weeks, we enjoyed the city so much. So here’s part two of our honeymoon in the big apple
Having breakfast at Magnolia Bakery!
The skyline of Manhattan from Brooklyn
On top of the Empire State Building
The Empire State Building I
The Empire State Building II
The streets of New York
We made about 500 photo’s of New York alone! I could fill this whole blog with them but I won’t and leave it as it is. Next stop…? Florida!

Our first destination was The Big Apple! We both never been there and were really looking forward to it! I call tell you all about what we did and saw but I'll let the photo's speak for themselves...!

The wedding ceremony was so special and intimate. We asked our closest family and friends to be there and spend this special day with us.
The ceremony was personal but with a lot of humor.
A lot of jokes were made, we really loved it!
We said our ‘I do’ in front of our witnesses. In the Netherlands there are no best man and maid of honour. They’re called a witness and they agree to be part of the wedding and they are our support during our marriage, in good times and in bad. They stood beside us when we said I do.
Our little nephew gave us the rings. He did such a good job!
Exchanging rings is always a funny moment. I couldn’t get the ring on S.’s finger and finally he had to put the ring on himself!
And here’s the evidence: we’re married!
End of part two…

It has been a while, sorry that I’ve been off the blog radar. This have been busy with the wedding, the honeymoon and going back to work when we got back. I have been using Twitter a lot trying to inspire people to have oatmeal for breakfast and showing some photo’s of the honeymoon. So now it is time to show you a few photo’s of our wedding day!
Normally, it’s a tradition that the bride sleeps at her parents’s home and then the groom picks her up from there. We decided not to do this because we already live together for some time and also because my parents are divorced and both of them don’t live in the same city as us and we wanted to get married in The Hague. So we both got changed in our home, not at the same time because I didn’t want him to see my dress! S. got dressed while I went to the hairdresser. When I got back, I got dressed upstairs and S. went upstairs to come and get me. Here we just had seen each other in our bridal wear!
Then we went by taxi to the wedding location, Pulchri Studio, together with the photographer which is my brother in law.
When we arrived, our guests were standing outside to greet us, it was such a special moment!
We said hello to them all and went to a seperate room and waited while the guests went to the venue where the wedding would took place. We made some photo’s in the meantime.
And then it was time to get married! We made our entrance.
We sat opposite the guests to we could see everybody.
And then the ceremony got started…
End of part one

After months of waiting and preparations, the day is finally here, our wedding day! I’m about to go and get myself ready (hair, make up, putting on the dress and hoping I won’t ruin my make up by crying, ha ha).
We’re getting married at 12.00 and then have a reception till 4.00 pm. After that our friends will bring us to a hotel nearby the airport where we will take a plane on Saturdaymorning to New York. I/ we can’t wait!
Blog to you soon, hopefully in New York!

Yesterday my dear friend Paula came over and instead of working on wedding preparations (we’re getting married in one week!), we decided to bake cookies the whole afternoon!
We both love a Dutch blog Bakparade in which you can find reciped of ‘healthy’ cookies, cakes, etc. So we decided to give it a try. First, we made the sugarfree peanutbutter-banana-oatmeal cookies. They were ok but they tasted like nothing, probably because of the lack of sugar.
So we tried the next one, muffins this time: banana-gingerbread muffins. They tasted really good but we couldn’t get the wrapper of the muffin… Weird but it least it tasted good. and the healthy part is that this way you can’t eat the whole muffin!!!
And finally we made a batch of Speculoos oatmeal cookies. Speculoos is a gingerbread spread and I find it highly addictive! Couldn’t stop eating the stuff yesterday! I don’t know if you can buy it outside of the Netherlands and Belgium. but if you can, buy it because it’s easy to use in dessert/ cookie recipes!
So at the end of the afternoon, we had a lot of sweet ‘healthy’ food! Don’t the fooled by the how many cookies on the photo, by that time we already ate quite a few!
The good thing about oatmeal is that it makes me feel full so around dinner time, I wasn’t very hungry and just ate an arugula salad with lentils. No photo to show you there but it tasted amazing! I went to see the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with another dear friend. The movie was so funny, you really should see it!
