        Anyway, now I feel much more organized and able to make it through this last month. I labeled the suitcase with a list on the outside of everything that is in there so I don't feel tempted to give in to my OCD tendencies and count it 10 times a day. Now, time to clean my house. .....must.......pull........self........away...... ..from....the.....computer!
        wow i am impressed with your packing- i cant wait to pack up our crap and get it out of the office. i already made a tentative pre-welcome letter and a welcome/thank you letter for the OOT bags if you are interested- i am sure you probably have the same templates as me though!

            Hey Tammy, did you buy a bra to be sewn in your dress? If so where and what kind? How did they do it?

              I went this weekend to get my dress hemmed, bustled, and add little snaps to secure the bra this weekend. The lady is going to charge me $50.00!!! I was so happy. I have spent so much on that dress. The cleaning alone was $400. I think it is better to go to an independent seamstress. It will save you $$$.

                Angie, I decided to do my dress alterations at the salon where I got it, and good thing too, because the women who would have done the alterations messed up on Missy's MOH's dress, it's too short and too tight, she can't even zip it up. I would have been sooo stressed if that happened to my dress.
