    We leave to fly home in less than a week!!! I am so excited, but can't believe a year has gone by already.

    I have to start the madness of packing everything for a 3 week trip this weekend, but at least I maybe able to see the floor in my guest room again =) I have just been throwing things into that room everytime I remember something I need to pack.

      I woke up in the meddlw of the night thinking, " How am I going to get all this crap to Jamaica?" Now I am up probably for the rest of the night....I have so much stuff to take for OOT bags and for the wedding itself I will need friends to take some of the stuff to the island for me. I am a bit of a control freak and I wish I could just take it all myself but with my dress as a carry on and with the FI and I both taking two bags I still need a little help. I just finished making my luggage tags and I am about to send them out along with my pretravel brochure next week. I am trying to get a list together of when everyone's flight arrives. I used VP to make my programs and I am going to spruce them up with a ribbon or some bling. I ordered them and am just waiting for their arrival. I pick up my favors tomorrow. I had champagne glasses engraved with a palm tree, Jamaica 2009, The Robinson wedding. I will put togs on with our logo and bubble wrap them this weekend. I have gift cards from Victoria's secret which should take care of my beach wear and honeymoon stuff. I will do my online shopping this weekend too. FI is going to the casino this weekend to play in a poker tournament and I decided to stay home to get some of these projects done. I am feeling totalling overwhelmed!! I cannot believe that in exactly one month from today I will be in Jamaica!

        Yeah I agree with everyone, my sleep is going to be non exsistent for the next month, I have so many lists going on in my head of different things to do. But today I sent my paperwork in to Carnival which is a big load off my shoulders because it means no one else can say they are coming. I got my shoes that I have been eyeing and they look great with my dress and are a great height. All our travel arrangements are booked. I called a place to get my hair done but they didn't call me back so that is hanging in the back of my mind. I am waiting on vistaprint so I can send out my pretravel brouchures and info. I still need some of my accessories. I put on a sundress today and found a rip in it so I freaked out because I wanted to bring it so I hit up Forever 21 and got a few cute ones that I can use for the trip, however I should have just waited and gotten them in Miami so I wouldn't have to pack them haha oh well! I'm just so scatterbrained right now I hope I get everything done, I've been planning for so long I can't believe it is finally time and I don't feel ready... well don't feel ready stuff wise not that I don't feel ready to get married hehe!

          Today I just got my finalized invoice for the ENTIRE wedding-- YIKES! I was all excited because the prices on her website were so reasonable- especially for flowers- and everything went up-- WAYYY up! Somehow, we are not terribly over budget (custom gold rings kinda put us over the top) I'm not sure if I should try to lose some things (do I really need flower tikis, arch, AND orchids and petals for the aisle?) I am glad that our WC didn't charge us a fee on the site, since we found it ourselves, but I do wish her price list on line was accurate. I really hope we're not being ripped off!

          On another note- today is my 2nd fitting!!! I am sooo Nervous! We leave 2 weeks from tomorrow!!!!! HOLY CRAP!!!!!

          Also had the strangest dream last night-- that FI's cousin & wife showed up with 3 kids that were their nieces and nephews, and I was like, I have no more chairs, and no more food! WTF am I gonna do with these kids! I was glad it was just a dream, lol!

                  OMG I made a list of everything to do.... good thing!

                  So this weekend we were sitting around and Joe's younger cousin texted him saying hi and he was at the Padres game w/ Joe's dad. Joe told me he texted and I realized i hadn't bought his clothes! He's our junior groomsmen and then i realized i bought the other BM dresses, but forgot my MOH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Her's is different cause she preggo.

                  So I now have that stuff under control, but girls make a list!

                  I can't believe in 10 days I'll be soakin up the sun in Mexico!!!

                    Jac, don't even get me started on the music playlist! I am so so SO over it- FI was supposed to digitize some music from vinyl, and since we moved, all of his equipment is scattered... ugh. I managed to get plenty of music, but there are some really special tracks on those LP's!!!
                    But everything else is falling into place- Dress fit perfectly, got our rings, my necklace (just waiting on earrings) and something to wear to the rehearsal dinner-thing. There's not much left to do but pack!! WOW!!
