I think you're pretty good besides that!
I have a travel agent that is helping us (well, somewhat...) I think we will book our travel within the next 2 weeks. Have to wait to see what happens with the FI's job.
I'm feeling better today because we have a set plan. We just have to book it now...oh yeah and pay for it

**I feel like I have so many DIY projects that I cant start because I need more crafting / supplies to get moving on it, but I don't know where to start with shopping first. It's like when I see it, then it clicks and I gobble it up, but when I feel crunched to get that ribbon / paper to complete a project I can never seem to find what I am looking for... Know what I mean?!
So I guess I am a little further along than I thought. I am sure that there is a ton that I am missing though, esp since it is 1:30 in the AM and here i am typing this! LOL

I know exactly what you mean about it being so easy to buy something to start a project and then it being soooooo hard to find specifics like ribbon to actually get going on the project. I've been procrastinating on doing all the stuff and I have to just put aside a day (or three) to get all that done! Glad to hear I'm not the only one stressing...I think we should be fine though. Good luck!
