      Your pics are gorgeous Lisa! I'm SO glad that you had a blast! My only question for now is-- how did the pre meeting with the wedding coordinator go? Did you have any decorations or favors that they gave out/set up for you? How did that work? Can't wait to see more pics!!

      Shellk- sounds like you are getting TON done! Can't wait to hear about the BD shoot and hopefully see a couple of them!

        Well today is the first day back to work for me after thanksgiving. I took Monday off. Work is a sh*tshow already

        wedding stuff has been on the back burner lately with the holidays and other things that have been keeping me busy. I'm hoping to get back to working on some things ASAP! I still have a few invites that need to go out to people who were slow in getting their addresses to us.

        How is everyone?

        I can't wait for Josie to get back! I hope everything was great for her!

        Lisa- how's life as a mrs.??

        shellk- you've been busy!
        Loving married life! <3

          The meeting with the coordinator went good. You will go through everything and once you sign the document at the end then it is concrete and you can't change anything. We did bring fans for the ceremony which we gave to Diana (the PR lady at the RPRM) the day before the wedding and they were put on the chairs for the ceremony. We had to assign a couple friends to put the place cards and maracas on the tables for for the private reception. They just went and set it up at 6:30pm and our dinner started at 7pm

          Life as a Mrs. is great!!! We had our legal ceremony on Saturday, just at our house with our dog. jeans and t-shirts were worn. It was very laid back and now I am officially a MRS!!!

          Hope this helps!

          I also wanted to tell you ladies to be careful with your room numbers when you are there, don't shout them out or anything. We found that anyone can go to the front desk and get a room key for any room and they don't ask for id, a last name or anything.

                shellk - the wedding coordinator (Ael) contacted us for the first time on September 3/09.
                Also, we are not having at ahr. As for cold mexican menu items, I am not really sure...maybe google it.

                  Lisa- Thank you so much for posting your awesome review and amazing pictures!!! I'm even more excited about everything after reading it! And you looked gorgeous!

                  Shelk- I bet you're getting excited for your BD pictures on Friday! I'm sure they will come out great!

                  Sammysgirl- I know how you feel...work has been SO busy for me too lately! Between that, going back to grad school, and trying to move into our house, I also had to put wedding planning on the back burner. Hopefully things will calm down soon, because I definitely have to start getting things organized!

                    So this is not wedding related, but just thought I would share what's going on with me.

                    I am considering going back to school for nursing. I was in nursing school when i was in college the first time but decided I needed a break from it after my grandmother suddenly passed away. I graduated with a bachelors degree and am currently an employee benefits sales rep. I hate my job and am considering going back to the nursing program I was in the first time around. I go in front of the board of nursing at my college this Thursday. I am now second guessing my decision!!! Going back to school would make money tight and for the first time in my life I would have some debt (besides my mortgage). I know I need to make a change (since i hate my job now and jobs aren't at all easy to find right now). I know with a nursing degree I will have endless opporunities and avenues I can take...it will take me approx 18 months to finish..AHHHH decisions!
                    Loving married life! <3

                      katie,nice your back i hope things hurry up and sort themselves out.

                      sammysgirl.read your post back i think you will get your answer.i think you should do it otherwise you may have regrets.if it is only the debt (even thought it is a massive thing)stopping you then dont let it you will manage and the debt will be paid off.could you get a part time job?do you have any other aspirations?hope you meeting goes well tomorrow.

                      lisa,thankyou soo much for staying with us.that means she may contact me next week yikes.
