        Haha i feel ya girl!!! i did my book and it took me a month of working on it every night for hours.. to get it done.. It is pretty much done but i am thinking of making a few changes. and additions etc.. i am so glad i did the majority of it earlier rather than later as it is soo time consuming!! hahaha. 

         

        mine has a part one and part two to it!! lol it is quite long.. but i figure because we are giving them to everyone at the airport they will have lots of time to look through it on the flight :)

          Are most of you shipping your OOT bag stuff to the resort ahead of time? Or are you bringing them with you?  A cute idea that I'm doing is personalized toothbrushes! I'm a dental hygienist so it is perfect, but I think it's a cute idea in general!  You know when you go to the dentist and they have the name of the dental clinic on the toothbrush? I am doing the same only with our names and wedding date!  Just an idea ;)

              I go half way camping this weekend and realized I hadn't brought my shower kit along with me. I am so glad I forgot it.

              I found these at Walmart for $4.97

              They have Aveeno lotion, Aveeno Bosy Wash, HE mini shampoo/conditioner, 4 packs of Herbal Essenses"Hair Mask", tooth paste and tooth brush and 2 Nivea lip balms. I can't remember what is in the men's one, but it looked good too.

              I am going to buy them to add to our bridal party and families OOT bags.

                What a great deal for the chapsticks!! I saw the benadryl sticks and was coming to post about them, unfortunately the ones at my dollarama expired 02/12 which is the month of our wedding so I figured not worth it! Be sure to watch out for expiry dates!

                    Anyone know where Incan find drawstring backpacks for our single guys OOT bags? I hope you know what I mean! I don't want to spend a ton on them but need a couple for our single gentlemen as I dnt think they will carry our other OOT beach bags Also, Joe Fresh has their amazing beach totes on sale for 11.94 now, I will post a picture tomorrow but I picked these up for our BMs as they are great quality and really sturdy They come in: Khaki and white Navy and white White and navy Blue and navy Another thing. Was thinking about adding To our BMs bags is a bandeau style bikini top so they don't get weird tan lines before the wedding! With bathing suits on sale now it is a good time to do it. Since we are buying their outfits (guys too) we are not doing gifts, just amping up their OOT bags. Does anyone have any suggestions for other things to add to the wedding party OOTs? Guys especially!!

                      Ladies...have to share!! If anyone is planning a trip to the states, do it soon. I was planning on getting a couple of bubbas for our families because they've never travelled AI, so they wouldn't know to bring their own travel mugs...bubba's were 1/2 price! The large ones, 52 oz, I think, were $5, the med 32 oz $4 and the small 18 oz, were $3!! Crazy!! Needless to say we cleaned out one of the Walmart's in Buffalo, bought 38 in total. We even found another Walmart, drove all the way there, and couldn't find them anywhere, so do your google research before you go...definitely worthwhile. As a result, we will be running around all week delivering our bags, because there is no way I can fit 38 bubbas into my luggage! What actually worked out really well, is that I have 6 boys coming with us between the ages of 8-13, so I didn't want to do anything too babyishe for them, I fit their stuff right into the bubba and wrote their names on the tag. It broke my heart, because somehow I miscounted and had to grab 2 more today from crappy tire...BOO!! They were the 20 oz size, $13!! but, a bit different than the walmart ones.
