Martha - I've been thinking about you guys. How is the weather now? I didn't realize that it was the pressure change that might cause pre-term labor. Make sense. I thought you just had a feeling you might go into early labor. How are you feeling?

I'll keep in contact....looks like it's going to hit above us now...yay for us, boo for them.

 

I am feeling good right now...nothing going on. We bought a crapton of water and food we can eat just in case we lose power....then my mom came home with a generator! ha! I am glad we are staying with my parents right now...I feel like I have to take care of them, even though they are in better "condition" than I am!

i just looked at the new projected path. I hope it loses strength because it's heading right for my family.

Oh this hurricane sucks!

 

Martha - I'm glad you are feeling ok right now. I'm sure your parents are glad you guys are there with them. I think the food, water and generator is a great idea. You can never be too prepared.

 

Morgan - I'm so sorry to hear it's heading towards your family. Are you in contact with them? Have they had to evacuate?

 

Funny story....well not really funny but kinda. Our boss lives in Houston and is in our Dallas office Mon-Thur. Well, he is at home right now (in Houston) TAPEING up his windows. Uuummm hello....tape? Seriously? What is he thinking? They're saying Houston may only get like 80mph winds - which is definitely something your windows can handle - but tape? He cracks me up!!

they have not had to evacuate their town. my mom doesn't evacuate even if it's advised. She'd only do it if its mandatory. a few years ago when rita hit, the evacuation was the worst part. also, there was a time she didn't evacuate & a tornado hit where she would have gone. something similar happened to mike's parents.

the area we live in doesn't flood. my town had a huge flood in 98 & our house was fine.

I always hope for it to lose power. I know people all along the coast so there isn't anywhere better for it to go.

my family is prepared. we've been through many hurricanes. we still get nervous though.

Martha - I am glad to hear that you won't be getting the worst of it anymore, but I do feel bad for those who will be getting it.

 

Morgan - That really sucks that it is heading straight for your family, but I am glad to hear that they are ready for it. My thoughts are with everyone that will be affected by the hurricane. Lets hope it loses strength and doesn't cause very much damage. Everyone keep us posted on how you and your families are doing!

my mom said it's heading more towards mike's family (near galveston). they are only having people evacuate that live in low-lying areas. my aunt & cousin have evacuated.

 

everyone is ready for the storm. now it's just waiting & hoping it's not a bad one.

I can't imagine how scary that must be and the unknown of what will come. Sounds like they are all well prepared though and that's all you can do!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
