  1. I have two cats and they are indoor/outdoor. I would prefer that they were indoor but my one cat pees if we don't let him out. It's a struggle because I worry about them but I know I don't want them peeing in the house either!!! Spoiled little cats!
  2. One thing that its important is to splurge a little. If you want something......eat it! Just try ordering half an order from a restaurant. If you want a piece of chocolate cake than have half of a slice. It's ok to eat what you want.....just don't go overboard!!! Part of self control is having what you want but knowing the right amounts to eat. Let us know what you did with the chocolate cake situation!!! Anything with chocolate......I just can't say NO!!!!
  3. MrsSparrow you could not be any more right!!! We just have to relax!!! Much easier said than done though. Sometimes the most frustrating part is having an idea and then executing it and it looks horrible or it just doesn't come out the way you want. That seems to be the case with EVERYTHING I have been doing lately. GRRRR!!!!
  4. because I just don't think I can take all the STRESS anymore. Who knew that these little planning details could make someone rip there hair out!!! I hate to say this but a part of me can't wait for this to be over with so I don't have to think about all this planning anymore!!!! 19 more day!!!
  5. Thanks girls for the advice!! I definitely know that these dry erase boards will not blow away but there will be extra pens and an eraser along with a card explaining what to do with the dry erase boards. Those things will probably blow away. After thinking so very long and hard about this I went to every store possible to see what I could find. I tried all the dollar stores in my area and there were baskets but not one's that I REALLY liked. I went to Shopko and they were having a HUGE sale on baskets. Each basket was on sale from $12 to $3. YAYYYY!!! I FINALLY found what I was looking for at a great price! Thank you so much for all your help girls! I LOVE this website!
  6. Ok girls here is the story.......We are having our reception on the beach and plan on providing dry erase boards with cameras for our guest book. We would like to put a dry erase board and camera on each table. Where we are having the reception does get windy at night time. To cover our bases I am wanting to maybe buy cute baskets, fill them up with sand and then stick everything inside the baskets, therefore, things will be less likely to blow away. I can't find any baskets I like that aren't $15 a piece. I just don't want to buy 6 baskets for that much......I am being cheap about this!!! So......... then I got the idea of buying beach pals and spray painting them in our colors. This would be a cheap idea but it might look too cheap. Does anyone see what I am saying? Our centerpieces are 2 cylinder vases filled with sand and a pink drowned flower. Next to the 2 cylinder vases will be small votive candle holders with tea lights in them. If anyone can just imagine what I am talking about and help me figure out if the beach pails would be too cheap looking with the centerpieces I would be sooooo very greatful!!! I might be too picky also......I just need another brides help!!!! Thanks ladies!!! I can always count on you girls!
  7. I am struggling with some ideas for centerpieces. I had a great idea of putting the pink diamond confetti on the tables with pink flowers in vases filled with coffee beans. I love this idea but we are having the reception ON the beach and it can get windy at night. So........my initial centerpiece idea is out. BTW.....our colors are chocolate brown and light pink. I LOVE the pink diamond confetti for the tables but I am concerned that they will blow off the table. So now I am back to square one trying to figure out what to do. I was thinking of keeping the coffee beans with pink flowers in a vase idea and maybe for more light finding square smaller vasses and filling them up with water and then filling the bottom up with the pink diamond confetti and let a LED tea light candle float on top. That way there is a little more light on the tables. Then I would put the flowers and coffee beans in the middle with the two water filled vases on each side. What do you think? Does this even make sense? I just don't want things to be flying off the tables and want to have all my bases covered. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks girls!
  8. Oh this is great.....I had no idea that shimmery make-up washes you out in pictures. Damn!!! I love shimmery make-up too! When it gets closer to the date I am going to do a make up session at MAC. MAC can be expensive so I think I will just get the foundation and stuff there and get similar eye shadow at a less expensive place. Oh and the lipstick too!
  9. Vikki- I just realized I never PM'ed you back!!! I am so sorry girl! Let's chat sometime and maybe get a drink and talk about the stress of planning a wedding!!!!
  10. Thanks so much ladies!!! I didn't even think if going to MAC or Sephora. Silly me! That's why I have you girls to help me. I will definitely do something like that. It makes tons of sense and I LOVE MAC!!!!
  11. So I am trying to save some $$ and am considering doing my own make-up. I am pretty good at doing my own so that's why I thought I could save a little extra money in this department. My problem is that I don't know what colors I should use and how I should go about applying my make-up. I usually wear brown tones.....brown shimmery eye shadow and brown eyeliner on the top and the bottom with mascara. The wedding colors are light pink and chocolate brown. Does anyone have any inspiration pics or ideas. I would greatly appreciate some help. Thanks girls!!!!!
  12. I am interested in the photo albums......are they still available?
  13. My mouth dropped when you said you were going to the tanning beds again!!!! Good one! I am glad to hear your feeling better. I have very fair skin too and I totally understand wanting to get a base before you go somewhere like Mexico. I have also tried the tanning beds and I was just not impressed. I just don't think they are for fair skinned ladies like ourselves! Your going to be a beautiful bride....just make sure you wear lots of high SPF when your down there. Keep us updated when they go away!
  14. I can't believe you are going through this right now!!! The things that happen to constantly test our patience!!! You will be FINE! It's probably an allergic reaction. How long have you been tanning? Is it something you have always done regularly or are you new to it? How often do you try new products or even try tanning products at all? I'm gonna put my money on the tanning beds or the lotion you used. Those lotions can be so harsh sometimes. Do you have sensitive skin? You haven't started using a new laundry detergent have you? You are so funny.....I would have freaked myself out googling too.....but I would have done it anyway!! LOL Keep us updated on what is going on. Don't panic because it might make it worse and you might get hives from stress. Take deep breathes and no matter what happens it's YOUR special day and you get to share it with the one you love!!!
