    So I leave on Thursday morning and I'm feeling like I'm almost ready. I just re-packed all of my clothes for the trip. We're flying with Sunwing and their baggage restrictions are pretty nuts. We're only allowed to bring 2 bags each and neither can be more than 20lbs. Needles to say I just took all my clothes out of my fancy new suitcase and put it in a duffle bag. I managed to pack another 8lbs!

    Here's what's still left to do:

    Edit and print Meet the Guests
    Print engagement photo of G and I for sand ceremony frame
    Buy light colored underwear (x3) for dresses
    Get tissue for OOT bags
    confirm videotaping, buy tapes
    buy and burn cd's for wedding music
    pick up and ensure wedding bands
    buy more votives
    get manicure and pedi- Jan 12 - 8:00
    hair trial Jan 13 - 5:30
    get gifts for tips
    distribute items for wedding party to bring

    What am I forgetting??

        I've been taking pictures as I go but I think I'm gonna have to post the planning thread when I get back. I might see if I have time but I'm leaving it optional so I don't stress.

        In other news, today I'm moving all my stuff to our new condo where Graeme has been living since October! Yay!!!!!

                  Well, FH and I are in our final week; this time next week we will probably be at some bar/club in Miami celebrating with my closest friend (who we're staying with) before we board the cruise ship (1/1!!

                  Today was my mini wedding shower; few people showed (weather wasn't great, plus it was at least a 2 hour drive for most invited guests) but I still had a great time!

                  I was able to get my nails and eyebrows done (won't need to do that during the week) before the shower.

                  We're still packing and doing laundry; trying to create our mega packing list to make sure we don't forget anything (like the rings!).

                  I still don't know how I want to wear my hair, and I'll probably wing it on the cruise ship, or use their salon.

                  I still don't know what photos I want the photographer to take, except for ones where "Thank You" and "We're/Just Married" in the sand (for thank you notes and wedding announcements). And, I'm thinking I will probably wing this project too.

                  Don't know if I feel ready... for the trip it self; not the wedding. It's kinda surreal to know that we leave in a week. hopefully this 'feeling' is only due to the hormones (for once I am happy Aunt Flow is here)... who knows.

                  Anyway, debating if I should do a planning journal as I don't really have anything to put into it since we're eloping... but, it looks like so much fun!

                  Hope everyone is having a great Saturday night!

                      My moving went really lame today. I have been moving stuff to our new place for a while already but I still had all my clothes at my parents house (where I've been living for the past bunch of years). Today I moved 3 laundry baskets of clothes and shoes and a computer desk. They're all actually still in FI's truck outside the condo b/c we decided to have friends over instead of moving.

                      In more exciting news, tomorrow morning we're getting legally married!!! I really didn't want it to be anything at all official (we're just signing papers with our pastor) but it does feel pretty exciting!

                      Now I just need to get some sleep!
