      It does seem crazy! I sort of had a little freakout last night. Im over it today though. Just feeling overwhelmed with things to do. Just have to tackle it one project at a time though

        I hear you! I had a little freak out a couple days ago. Work is crazy and when I get home, I'm too tired to do wedding stuff. Now I feel like I have a lot to get done!! But like you said...one project at a time!

          Ugh, I'm such a procrastinator! I had off Wed-Fri last week and Thurs-Fri this week and still didn't do anything wedding related:) I just hung out and was lazy instead of getting stuff done. I guess I just work better under pressure with not much time left. O'well it'll all come together! 6 weeks from today, can't believe it's come by so fast!!! Good luck to everyone with all the things they still need to take care of.

              Time is starting to fly so fast-I can't believe the wedding less than a month away. We leave in 25 days......

              My shower was today-we had so much fun!

              My aunt drove in from Spokane and wanted to see my dress so we scheduled my final dress fitting this morning. I decided it would be a great day to have one of my "hair trials" so I had my hair done then headed to the alterations shop. It was great to see the dress with my hair and makeup done as it will be for the wedding. My mom brought up my grandmother's pearls and we got some fabulous mother daughter shots.....

              Next we had lunch then headed to the shower. It was at a traditional english tea house and we had a great time. I love this picture, it kind of sums up the location and captures the moment.

              So now I'm home working on thank you cards and since tonight is Brandon's bachelor party he's out with the guys working on his best hangover ever!

                Hey Ladies. I totally forgot to order my barefoot sandals... I ordered them today from Etsy seller Mystical love. I had spoke with the lady in early august and she said for me to have the order to her my mid sept. I def convo'd her yesterday and she said she could get them done in time. She has a few orders ahead of me but I should still be good.
                Re: my surprise shower today. My family is so horrible with surprises. My sister has said something about like everyday for the past 3 days. I was babysitting her daughter overnight on fri and when i called her on sat to see what time she was picking her up she's like yea I'll be there as soon as I leave party city I'm getting these shower decoration... I mean dinner party decorations, I just pretend to ignore her tho. Then my mom calls me last night and is like (sidebar we are scheduled to have "dinner" randomly at my godmother's house tonite, it's really random to have dinner there bc she's known for throwing parties) what are you wearing to dinner tomm. I'm joking her by saying jeans and t-shirt lol. She freaked out and was like just wear something cute and make sure your hairs looks cute too. I'm like for dinner at aunt Steph's nah I think jeans will do hahaha. Then I call my other aunt this morning to get her correct email to send her an evite to our rehearsal and brunch and she never goes to my aunt Steph's house for anything and she's like what are you wearing today, I'm like wow your going to dinner at her house too hahaha. They really really suck at surprise parties.

                OK I'm off to ebay. I was bidding on some Coach crossbody bags to take on the trip. I was so upset bc the one I wanted sold for $59 during the time that my internet was down. I have to buy Coach this way until the wedding. There's no way I can justify buying myself a coach bag (reg price) with this large wedding balance looming over our heads lol.

                  Our family must be related..lol. My mom and my MOH are planning my "surprise" bridal shower. I've had two peple slip up. One told me the location and the other one said the date. Both of them ignored the surprise part on the invitation.

                  Hope you had a great day!!!

                    Awww Vikki, I got goosebumps at that picture. SOOOOO close!

                    Ashley, cant wait to hear about your "surprise" shower :)

                    So Im deciding on the design for our koozies. I really would like a palm tree with our names and date. But I love how cute the saying, to have and to hold and to keep your beer cold. But I dont want to put hearts so Im torn on what image I could use....

                      Melissa I think you could still use the palm tree with that saying.... I will be cute bc then ppl will have the memory of the trip but it really won't say like your name and date etc...

                      OK ladies our Shower was so nice. Unfortunately I took no pictures. Even if we didn't know about the surprise when we arrived at the house we saw all my friend's (well some of my friends since many of my friends didn't come but oh well no biggie) cars. But it was still fun to walk in and hear them yell surprise... OMG it was so well organized. it was hosted by my mom Godmother and Godsister. But so many ppl helped. It was a tropical theme and we had coconut shrimp, jerk chicken, ribs, corn on the cob coleslaw (my gma's homemade my fav) pineapple upside down cake etc, etc. We even had a sheet cake with our ship on it lol. And we played so many games, it was hilarious. We got great gifts. And there was a great group of ppl there. The only issue that I will have to acknowledge today is that my BM was not there bc she was supposedly not invited. My mother said that she sent her and invitation for her and her mother but I think she's moved since I sent out the wedding invites and I gave my mother a spreadsheet with addresses from the wedding invites. She was really upset and I didn't speak with her yesterday, but I'll have to call her today. The thing that irks me about that situation is that I sent out a message on fb to like 5 ppl that I knew had moved requesting the addresses. She was the only one who didn't respond. So I just assumed that she hadn't moved since the 1st invites went out. She tends to do this thing where she ignores every email or message I send her until we talk on the phone. But since I wasn't planning the shower after I sent off the addresses I forgot ab them.
                      OK I'm off to work TTYL.
