Steph & Celina-Have a great trip and fabulous weddings!
I picked up my dress last night. It wasn't ready when I was supposed to pick it up so I got it last night at 8:30PM. I got NO sleep on Friday night so I passed out on the couch as soon as I got home. I got two more pairs of blue panties to wear under my dress for my something blue. I haven't tried them on yet so I hope at least one of them fits. I also picked up some more lingerie for the trip. I got an old hanky from my aunt from Ireland so I got my something old and borrowed so those things are done. I need to finish printing out the welcome packets today, I had to pick up more paper yesterday. I also need to finish the programs. I pawned the fans off to my FMIL to tie the ribbon on them. We are almost done packing, I'll be able to finish packing once I'm done with the laundry and the rest of my make-up and hair stuff I can pack Tuesday morning before we leave. I'm getting my nails done tomorrow, and my eyebrows waxed. I'm going to go tanning in a few minutes and will probably go again tomorrow. I'm not sure if I'll logon again before I go, but I just wanted to thank everyone again for all your help and support!

Thank you ladies, for all of you being here. I don't think I could have done all of this if it weren't for each and every one of you. I'm gettin everything packed in my car to drive to San Diego Monday morning. I fly out to Maui on Wednesday. My legal day is Thursday and I'll officially be Mrs. Shawn Gillispie. I'm addicted to checking BWD. What am I gonna do now for my fix

Michelle: It sounds like things are coming together - your list is impressive and it seems like you have things under control. 3 days to go!!
We might have another guest coming with us! One of my old coworkers who I'm still close with called me this morning with awesome news - she wants to get away and is considering booking at our resort for the week we are there: crashing our wedding! I laughed when she asked if that was ok.
We are booking a limo to take us to the airport, so I've confirmed that today too. Our tickets should be arriving this week or next, so that is one mor thing off the list. Then I can mail out our newsletters and luggage tags.
One other surprise, my Mom is buying us travel mugs for our favours! She is buying enough for all our guests, and is putting our monogram on them. I think it will be so cute for everyone to have a matching one, and what a good thing to have after the fact. It was something we really wanted to do, but the cost was prohibitive for us (we spent the money towards the private reception instead). So this was a really really nice surprise. I love my Mom!

Chika - The travel mugs are great. We got bubba kegs for everyone going with us. We were going to get the monogramed ones, but with the cost, we could get the bubba for cheaper when they were on sale. I made luggage tags that I put on them with each guests name on one side, and the other side had the info for our wedding, and the saying "To have and to hold, To keep your drink cold"
So I got a bunch of stuff done at my Mom's yesterday. I got the luggage tags all together and on the mugs, gum and ugly green material to tie on the suitcases making it easier to find at the airport into the bubbas.
Then I got the OOT bag stuff together and the first aid kits. I have a couple things I have to add to the OOT bag stuff, but it is all packed into one of the carry-ons now. A few more things to do, but I got rid of a bunch of stuff today.
I am at work right now, and brought the last few pages of the welcome books so I could cut them out. Tomorrow night my Mom and I can glue them in since we are working nights together tomorrow.
How is everyone else doing with their prep? Not too much longer!!!

Tomorrow is my second bridal shower, so I am helping my sister clean up and get ready for it.

erica how was the shower?

My shower was good. I will see if I can post a couple of pics maybe.
My internet still isn't really working and now my computer is in the shop. It has decided that it is tired and won't come out of sleep mode.
So today my Nanny (Grandma) is having surgery to get a pacemaker and defibrilator in. Hopefully this will keep her around until after we get back from holidays!
