I also finished my Welcome Booklets. I emailed the file to fsil and she is going to print them for me and bind them. I just have to go to staples today for a cover for them. So glad they are done! I also managed to do the menus, they are printed, i just have to cut them out and glue them to turqoise paper. i printed out the programs just have to cut them and glue to fans. I made my PhotoShare postcards. I printed them myself. they are okay but i'm thinking about doing them over with VistaPrint when the oversized postcards are free again. I also did the Thank You notes that will go in our photo album favors and printed the labels for the pashminas.

OMG Danielle that is awesome on your Bparty! You better take some pics! At least it wasn't a surprise! I'd hate to have had you running around again all primped up again! LOL!
How was the movie? I cant believe its cold enough near you to snow already.

So guess what FI and I did this weekend? Ate the crappiest foods known to man. Seriously it was SOOO bad all weekend. Friday night - Olive Garden. Sat - French Toast, Mac N Cheese, Mc DOnalds. Sunday - Doughnuts and then more Olive Garden.
Seriousy, WTF is wrong with me? Our wedding is in LESS THAN 3 WEEKS. UGH. Gross.

Danielle, your party looked like so much fun! I am now craving some Melting Pot. I love that place!!!
Celina, snow?? OMG, it was 80 degrees in Chicago yesterday and is supposed to be 81 today! Normally I love hot weather, but I just packed all my summery stuff for the trip because I didn't think I was going to need it! Luckily, I still had a couple skirts and stuff that I didn't pack that I was able to wear over the weekend and today.
I had my dress fitting on Saturday and everything fit great. She just has to take a little bit more off the bottom. Standing it looked fine, but when I walked around a bit I was kind of stepping on it. I'm naturally clumsy so I had her take it up a bit more so I wouldn't be tripping down the aisle! Ha ha! She also pulled up the train to do the bustle, and I'm not crazy about it. (I didn't get pics this time) When I tried the dress on at the bridal shop the lady there showed me it would be brought up to where this diamond of beading in the back is, and the beading on the train would flow down from that point. However, when my alterations lady pulled it up the train is too long to have it pulled up only to that point and a lot would still be dragging. In order to have it there she would have to cut off a big part of the train and all the beading. It will be up to my hip area. I guess I will have to see how it looks when she is done working on it, but I'm not too excited about it.
I was cutting the rest of the program pages yesterday, and was almost done when I noticed I spelled my brother's name wrong. Instead of Hunter, I have Huntr! I was so mad because it took me forever to cut those damn things. I had to edit that page to put two columns of names for the bridal party because have one made the page too long to fit in the program. Instead of copying and pasting the names I retyped them so I know that is when I must have done it because it was spelled right on the sample one. Now I have to reprint and cut all those pages. I'm am so ready to throw the programs out the window!
Mike burned all the CDs with the pre-ceremony, ceremony, and cocktail hour music and we'll also have the songs on our ipods. The CDs can be a back up in case we have any ipod issues. The DJ is working on our reception mix so that should hopefully be done soon. I still need to do our welcome letters and all that. I did make the name tags for the OOT bags and tied those on with raffia ribbon. I also stuffed all the bags with all the non-liquid items we have, and packed those. Luckily we were able to fit all, but the 3 family bags in there (those are more full since I got the kids sand toys, beach balls, etc that wook up more room). I think Mike's parents should have an empty suitcase that we can pack those in. We have one large suitcase filled mostly with OOT bags, and a few other items, and a medium sized suitcase with most of the remaining wedding stuff: fans, blume boxes, guestbook, etc. If we can fit the rest of our clothes and shoes in a medium sized suitcase we might move the wedding stuff into the other large suitcase we have so hopefully we can fit the rest. I highly recommend test packing to those that haven't done it yet.

I haven't test packed either, but I did start a packing list this weekend and I think we'll need another suit case. My goal is to test pack tonight and get to work on our playlists!!
