    Regarding your cousin - you have every right to be upset. Especially since you are going to her wedding. Only one person on my dad's side is going to our wedding, and only one on my real mom's side is going. I feel bad because hardly none of my family is going and ALL of FI's family is going. I felt the same way you do, but in the end you have to look at who IS coming. It is hard not to be mad at the others. Has she mentioned who was going to her wedding? Maybe in the end you'll be the only one going to her wedding and you may have an opportunity to flip the tables on her and be her only person at her wedding from her family who goes. It is SO hard not to be upset, hurt and feel bad about it. Are you guys having an AHR?
    I might not get the finished jewelry until the shower which is when I am giving them their gifts, but if I can get a picture of them and you like them I'm sure my cousin can put something together for you if you'd like. She's done a lot of bridal jewelry. She offered to make mine, but I wanted something more vintage looking to go with my e-ring, and I have a lot of crystals on my dress so I thought it might be crystal overload if I had the jewelry too.

    We are not having an AHR. It is too expensive to have something, and most of the people that we invited to our DW would have had to travel to Chicago if we had something at home so who knows if they would come to an AHR either. We are having a shower, and all the out-of-state people have already declined. Since our wedding is in November it's not like we can have a casual BBQ either which would probably be the only thing we could afford to do if we had an AHR.

    Danielle-I don't know who she is even inviting to her wedding so I don't know who is coming. She hasn't even told me the date! The last time we talked they were looking at May, but hadn't picked a date yet. She hasn't sent out any save-the-dates or anything.

    I still need to respond to her email, but I had to cool down first otherwise I might say not so nice things. It's just frustrating since we were only going to invite immediate family and friends to the wedding, but then we decided we should extend an invitation to everyone and if they came they came and if not then no big deal. The most important people are going to be there and I just need to get over it, but for some reason this situation just really got to me. This is the first time I have gotten upset about someone not coming. Usually all the others I have been happy since it will be less money for us and one more OOT bag we won't need. How sad is that?

        So here are the pics of the larimar earrings and pendants. They are on one of the turquoise rafia fans. I also included pics of some candles and tea light holders that my Mom got on clearance at Michaels.

        This is one of the pendants on the silver chain since they are all the same, and then the 2 different style of earrings.

              I got all of that stuff off ebay. I was going to go to Bavaro Plaza outside our resort when we got down there, but then decided we might be pressed for time after getting down there. I love this stone and have a few pieces myself from previous trips down there.

                  Hey there. Thought I would stop in quickly to say that I did my BD session this afternoon at 3pm. I went into the city this morning and went shopping for outfits with my 17 year old sister. She helped me pick them out. I was sooooo nervous on the way to the city, and even more so on the way to the photo shoot, that I told my sister if I had eated lunch, I probably would have thrown it up. Another girl go there the same time as me so she could get her hair & make-up done which I opted out of, and Erica & Ijust got to it. I was worried I wouldn't know what to do, but she was awesome and jsut told me everything to do! I am sooooo excited to see the pics. I might not have them for about 4 weeks though, since she is travelling and taking all the pics in the BD marathons!

                  Well, I may not be around much this week, as I am back down to the campsite. I just stopped quickly to get some more diapers for Justin while I was on my way threw town!

                  Have a great week everyone!

                    That's awesome! I'm sure they will turn out great. I wish I would have lost the weight I wanted to so I could have done BD pics.

                      Glad the BD shoot went good Erica! I wish i had enough guts to do them because i know my fi would love them, it's not like me at all to do something like that. And maybe if i lost all the weight i wanted to, i would get them done.
