My Rings

Since the lilies that Mr. Bean gave me for our seven-month-a-versary were finally in bloom, I thought I would try and take some fancy ring shots. Here’s my favourite:


Apparently my rings really don’t like being in focus – they’re camera shy!

Have you tried to take photos of your ring? Let’s see them!

What to do?

With the masses of cards you receive from all your showers, parties and wedding guests?


Why is there always such a battle between sentimental things and clutter?

What would you do?

Was Yesterday! We didn’t do much special for our first 1/2 anniversary last night, but we did go out to Field on the weekend. For those of you who didn’t know, Field was the location of our honeymoon. I think the Rockies are a great place for a honeymoon or a romantic weekend getaway!

Where is your ideal weekend getaway?

… or at least your girlfriends.


(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don’t Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That’s Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That’s okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you’re welcome. (I want to add in a clause here – This is true, unless she says ‘Thanks a lot’ – that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say ‘you’re welcome’ . that will bring on a ‘whatever’).

(8) Whatever: Is a woman’s way of saying F– YOU!

(9) Don’t worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking ‘What’s wrong?’ For the woman’s response refer to # 3.

* Send this to the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can avoid if they remember the terminology.

* Send this to all the women you know to give them a good laugh, cause they know it’s true!!!

Have you ever been guilty of any of these? I know I am. Especially “Fine,” “Nothing,” and “That’s Okay.” Perhaps I should show this to Mr. Bean to stop the disconnect?

Some Help Please!

So as most of you know (or know now), Mr. Bean and I bought a condo together before we got married. Now, it’s coming time to decorating things and I desperately need help! Any opinions would be wonderful! 🙂

… and created a newlywed blog. It probably won’t be super exciting, but I’ll try my best. It’s still “under construction”, but what isn’t?


I will probably do some kind of wedding recap. Then perhaps a few more wedding related things to help me deal with PWTS and show off my wonderful husband. Or if I am feeling creative. 🙂

As a peace offering, I will give you this cute picture with my dog:

That's Lucky being held by Mama Bean.

Just for the record, I love my dog.
