    i had some good progress today! i'm glancing at my ticker on my more recent posts and trying not to freak out...

    i found the bmaids' earrings today (part of their gift) @ dillard's! i <3 that store. i have to go search for 4 more pair at surrounding locations, but that's ok! more excuses to shop. haha like i need that right now...

    maybe (?) found my earrings, but i'm receiving mixed reactions (such as "funky" and "unique" annnnd untraditional)...so boo

    i got the actual "bag" for the OOT bags...although it's not a bag...haha it's a navy gable box that i am making a custom label for. it will match the water bottle labels that will accompany the OOT box

    scored $1 one ounce hand sanitizers at bath & body works for the OOT boxes

    found the last loose ends of "honeymoon" clothes (bcbg is having an amazing sale 30-70% off on most things + an extra 20% on their in store stuff..go now!) ... haven't done anything about shoes, but i think i can scrounge up old pairs to match new stuff!

    found fun fun stuff for decorations and a partial centerpieces for the AHR..hobby lobby is having a nice sale, too!

    so yay for today! still mucho to do! it was good to get out and get some things done! keep working at it january brides!!

          yay for more progress! got the remaining pairs of bmaids' earrings at another dillard's. the saleswoman saved me a trip to another store by suggesting to get the maid of honor a complementing "different" pair...so i'm DONE with those! YAY!

          i got my wedding SHOES on sale on sale on sale (40% off + another 40% off) at dillard's...AKA my new fave store

              I didn't make near the progress Nicole did, but...FI and I bought a condo! We don't live together and we won't be moving in together until we're married so we're pretty darn excited about it!!

              Anyone know a good place in Canada to shop for dark brown linen pants? I'm getting a little nervous that with school starting again and now house stuff to deal with, there is going to be very little time left over for wedding planning.

                ummm, pretty sure purchasing a condo is progress!! :)

                CONGRATS!

                can't help with the pants, but i'm feeling your time crunch with school/no time for wedding......!

                    Congrats on the huge purchase teacherbride! Thats so exciting...I wish I could offer some help on the brown linen pants in Canada. So far FI and I have searched at MEXX (but the clothes aren't made to fit a man with huge hockey player thighs and shoulders....so he looked like he was going to burst out of the shirt and pants...) I think we're going to hit up the Bay and see what they have b/c the sales are great and I found some really nice designer pants for him there in the past. Probably going to go to Harry Rosen last if we can't find anything for him to wear....Good luck shopping! So far I'm the the only one who has anything to wear to the wedding including my FI, the GM. my BM and both mothers of the bride. Looks like we're going to have a naked wedding!

                    So ladies, I got my flowers in the mail yesterday (my bouquet, my hubby-to-be's bout, and a matching flower for my hair) and they are really pretty! Here are the photos she sent me before she shipped:

                    She is an ebay seller and my flowers are orchids and plumerias. When I first opened up the box I was so surprised because it was way smaller than it looks in the pics, but it's cause it flattened out during shipping. I played with them a bit and fluffed them up nicely. I really love them!

                      Your flowers are gorgeous!

                      I think I'll head out to the bay tonight. Yikes, feeling a little overwhelmed this morning!
