It was my 26th birthday last weekend. I had an amazing time and was completely spoilt! (few photos below) We celebrated with lots of amazing food, a walk in the Peak District and hired a karaoke booth at a Vietnamese restaurant. Sounds strange, but somehow works ever so beautifully.

Can't quite believe I'm 26, feeling oh so old!

I can't quite believe that it's so soon until we get married! It's gone so fast. Our whole engagement has been so stress free. I thought by now there would have been a few signs of stress as there isn't long to go, but it's been quite the opposite!

We have a few bits to finalise and last minute things to put together, but nothing major. I've just really enjoyed all of it and have loved focusing on our marriage, instead of putting all our energy into making the day "perfect". 

This weekend I was completely spoilt on hen party number one. All the girls in mine and Tom's families, old and young, went to Whittlebury Hall for a luxury spa weekend. We spent time relaxing in the spa, had facials, massages, ate lots of amazing food, drank champagne and played some games. I came away feeling so incredibly lucky to have such an amazing family, by birth and by marriage! 
Now I am just ridiculously excited for hen party number two, in Barcelona! 

Below is a little hen party photo and some wedding decorations I have been working on.

I am alive! We have finally moved into our new home and have settled in, set up wifi etc, and therefore after months of a blog free world, I am back. 

I'm going to have a much needed blog makeover within the next few weeks, and will be blogging regularly again from now on!

Lots of exciting things ahead including my Barcelona hen party, our wedding, honeymoon and lots of exciting things work wise. Along with a few exciting announcements over the upcoming months, I hope you will join me on this journey via the blog/Instagram! 

Here are a few photos of our home I uploaded to instagram recently (@whatkatharinedoes), expect a lot of home posts as we continue to settle in and transform it into our own!
