• {Planning Tips} Honeymoon Registries with Honeymoon Pixie

    These days so many engaged couples already have linens, pots and pans, appliances, flatware, and all of the other things traditional wedding registries provide.  And lots of couples don’t feel they need the “stuff” but have wedding guests who would like the guidance for gift giving that a registry provides.  My solution?  A honeymoon registry!

    My husband and I had both a traditional registry (so I could get the Kitchen Aid standing mixer I always wanted, a nice set of servingware and flatware, and a full set of “grown up” glasses – the ones that match and aren’t plastic!) and a honeymoon registry.  Having a honeymoon registry is one of the best wedding-related decisions we made and almost our entire Italian honeymoon was paid for!

    Honeymoon Pixie provides a honeymoon registry service to engaged couples. It’s similar to a traditional wedding registry; however guests purchase fun activities for you to enjoy during your honeymoon. It’s ideal for couples who live on their own and have many of the household items needed to start a home together. Get inspired with these sample honeymoon registries.  Creating your free honeymoon registry is easy with Honeymoon Pixie. Simply select one of their pre-built registries and they produce your own honeymoon registry website to share with family and friends.  It’s brilliant!

    If that doesn’t convince you, here’s a little inspiration from my Italian honeymoon (by way of a 26 hour layover in Paris!)




     (we got rained on a bit, but Lucca was still one of the most charming stops on our trip)
    {Cinque Terre}

    (if we look like we’re glowing, it is because we hiked as far back as you can see…)
    {Pisa, San Gimignano, & Siena}

    (the hubs was a bit sick in all of the “sunglasses” photos – he caught an Italian cold)


    (the $150 dollar 15 minute gondola ride was totally worth it, but only because it was our honeymoon and because it was a gift from one of our wedding guests from our honeymoon registry!)

    For any brides-to-be out there, I would highly recommend an Italian honeymoon!  And ours would not have been possible without our honeymoon registry.  So be sure to check out Honeymoon Pixie and start planning your dream honeymoon.

      Nice couple. You had a great fun and enjoyment on your honeymoon. The photos reveals that. People go on honeymoon to have fun with their life partner and to understand each other very well. This the best place and time to come close to each other. You really did that.

    •  Seriously cannot believe I'm saying this but, YOU ARE NINE MONTHS OLD! Your first 9 months of life sure did go by faster than your 9 months in my belly, and I didn't even know you were in there for the first 9 weeks! (Yep, I was totally that pregnant lady the third time around  but that's a story for another time...) You are feeding yourself, have still never had a bottle , are pulling up to standing, sprint crawling, finally cut your first tooth and are working on your second. You have regressed in sleep and the last week have been waking up 1-2 times a night but I know it's those teeth. You are not a good teether. You're babbling like crazy, mostly in this hilarious new demon voice, you often mimic sounds, and are always saying dadadada. How about a little mama, huh? I'm the one who has barely slept for 9 months through colic and reflux and nursing and night wakings and who carries you around on my person 90% of the time. I'm not bitter though. The smiles you save for me alone more than make up for it. #quincysmonthbymonth  Countdown to Halloween is on! Reminiscing about that time Charlie was @macklemore for Halloween, 2013. Kid was two weeks shy of three and played the part to a tee. What is your favorite costume you or your kids ever did? #isthatyourgrandmascoat #poppintags #charlieasmacklemore #babymacklemore #bornentertainer #charlesdashiell
       Continuing the Halloween theme today because I'm in a Halloween mood  Last year. My favorite movie as a kid became Charlie's favorite last year and he wanted to be Jareth so bad. I wasn't sure I could pull it off, but we did. Even down to dressing Calvin as Toby because he was the perfect age. I don't think it will ever get better than this for me. #dancemagicdance #babewiththepower #labyrinth  Motherhood is a constantly evolving state of total joy, exhausted agony, superhuman strength, and very human failures. As soon as you celebrate that superhuman successful day, it is replaced with new challenges. And just when you think you can't go one more day, you get a day so magical you want to have ten more babies. I'm in the midst of one of those exhausted phases again but I keep trying to remind myself that it is this phase that makes the magical days shine brighter. In the wise words of Miley Cyrus (I'm actually serious): it's all about the climb.  We've got this mamas. (Tag a momma who needs to get cheesy and read the words to a Miley Cyrus song ) #battlefieldmotherhood _______________________________________________ I can almost see it. That dream I'm dreaming, But there's a voice inside my head saying, "You'll never reach it." Every step I'm takin' Every move I make feels lost with no direction, My faith is shakin' But I, I gotta keep tryin' Gotta keep my head held high There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb The struggles I'm facing The chances I'm taking Sometimes might knock me down, But no, I'm not breaking I may not know it, But these are the moments That I'm gonna remember most  Just gotta keep goin', And I, I gotta be strong Just keep pushing on, 'Cause... There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb.
