      ToBeMitchell: Holy crap! MIL hasn't booked her trip and your leaving in 3 weeks? Now that is rude. I am sorry.

      So I caught up on all the posts. I am happy to have someone that is in the same boat as I am!
      Good news: No more travel for work until Jan 5th! Then, only 2 more weeks of travel before the wedding! Wow, time flies.

      My veil came in, I am wearing it around the house! And my dress was altered and looks great! I don't even need spanx which will be nice for the heat.
      JUST IN: All attendant and parents gifts are bought and will be wrapped in a few minutes. We are giving them their gifts at Christmas so I don't have to carry them!
      FI has his belt and shoes. He just needs to run in and have his suit altered (it's already there) and pick up a shirt and he is ready to go.
      I need to pick up my TTD and go with girls to pick up BM dresses from the tailor.
      I need to write content for menus, programs, placecards and get them to the girls who are making them for me- I delegated!
      Work on ceremony, this is a biggie
      Organize my OOT bag items.
      Shop for a swim suit and that is it! I think. Probably not but it sounds good.

      Merry Christmas!

            Kate, this had me cracking up! I want mine to come in!
            So, my logo stickers came from zazzle today, but they screwed up and shorted me three sheets of stickers. So now I have to wait for replacements. They look cute tho!

            Sounds like everyone is getting all the things on their lists done. I gotta work out. I was doing so well for so long, but haven't done anything in a couple of weeks. If thinking about exercising made you skinny I'd be a size 0! hahaha Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

              LOL Kelly, I think that too!!!
              I haven't worked out in almost two weeks... I lost my drive and can't seem to get it back.. and whats worse- I have no excuse, the gym is 2 floors down in our building, I can't even blame the weather to say I couldn't get there bc of all the snow..
              I just want to drink lots of yummy xmas bevi's and eat cookies... how bad is that!!

                great job ladies! i haven't posted in forever, and i feel VERY behind....
                (reality check: scott and i will be married in ONE WEEK!!!!) <------

                SO much has happened in a short amount of time:

                -we have a place to LIVE!!!!!!!!!!! ((that's a HUGE relief because now we have somewhere to rest when we come home! the AHR is two days after we get back, so the no home situation was a huge stress.)

                -finished the BM gifts (minus the thank you notes)

                -finished music selections for reception and gave the list to our "music man" (a groomsman) who is in charge of making the playlist and bringing the iPod

                -three people have backed out last minute lowering our count from 29 to 26.... <---this really bummed me out.

                i still have a TON of little things to do. goals for today: FINISH welcome packet and FINISH menus

                P.S. I found Daily Spanish Phrases for Dummies in Target's $1-Spot yesterday!!!!!! They also had Daily Spanish, but I think the phrases were more appropriate for our group! :)

                  Way to go Nicole! I am SO excited for you! Sounds like you're pretty calm too, I'm sure having a place to live when you get back really helps.

                    Hello Ladies!

                    It's been a while since I've posted (as well); as much as I love Christmas, kinda glad it's over so we can focus on our daughters 2nd birthday (jan 12) and then our cruise wedding!

                    Small updates:

                    Cut about 7 inches of hair off and I still don't know how I want it to look for the wedding
                    Bought a silk orchid for my hair (small), and while I like it - not sure if it's what I want.

                    I am stuck on a hair style.

                    ....

                    3 weeks until we fly out to Florida and 3 weeks 1 day until the cruise begins. Starting to get excited but not as much as I thought I would be at this point.

                    ....

                    I have a 'fun veil' that I bought off Etsy and I wore it around to... break it in... for the first week I got it

                      Found and bought the 7 travel candles I needed at Michaels for .68c
                      Bought the sand for our sand ceremony
                      Bought the palm-tree punch I wanted for our welcome letters
                      Completed all the thank you cards from my 4 wedding showers
                      Finally received GM attire, just need some footwear now

                      Tomorrow FI and I plan on crossing off at least 3 more things on our list!
