    Well I have good news, my hair has stopped falling out so now I have some left for the wedding haha But my DIY invitations are a flop so I picked out some new ones to buy, so I just have to get an update from my FMIL b/c she said she has more guests to add then I'll buy those. Has everyone else sent theirs out? I feel behind in that dept. I booked and paid for my hotel in Miami before the cruise. And I'm doing really well with my OOT bags, just have a few things left to buy, I've been working on them for so long getting things bit by bit that it will be strange when they are finally done! Still need to book my flight to and from Miami, get the boys measurements for tuxes, make a newletter for my guests who accept, get our rings, buy the shoes I like, and other misc. to dos.

      Oh and all of a sudden I am pretty much in charge of my wedding shower! My sister was going to throw it for me but my mom got all involved and wanted to pay for things so my sis is letting her but that means that my mom calls me before making any decisions instead of calling my sis. And they told my FMIL that she could find some sort of craft for favors and we could get together at my sis's and make them which translated into my FMIL wanting me to give her a list of favor ideas, which I did, then she wanted me to go to the craft store with her and I'm sure that isn't the end of it. So I'm really much more involved then I would like to be, I wish it were a surprise so they would all leave me alone!

        I'm soooo screwed on a shower! My sis is a horrible hostess and did an awful job for my baby shower but I don't think my other girls are going to jump on it, and my mom won't even be here so....

          well I'm not having a shower... when no one who is going to your wedding lives near you its kind of pointless, so in lue of I'm having a girls tea a few days before at a local (to my wedding location) tea house... I found all the info and did the invites and just gave the number to my MOH to call and set it up hehe

          I'm inviting most of my girl friends who are going to the wedding plus our femail grooms attendant and my FI sister

          I think I have almost everything done and me and the FI are now looking for a place to live!!

                OH I bought a bunch of silver spoons and I'm going to tie a ribon in my wedding color around it and give it to all the girls at the tea
                I'm really excited for the week before, a few of my girl friends are renting a beach house down from my beach house and we will spend the whole week together :)

                    Booked flights/rooms for guests
                    Had a meltdown with the TA (but got things compd because she screwed up so much)
                    Got "THE" wedding dress

                    In the process of researching and booking a BD session
                    Need to buy a groom present (prob. a new movado watch and BD photo book)
                    Need to book couple massage for day before our ceremony
                    Need to book a private dinner on the beach (surprise for Sandals)
