    WHOA!!!

    Seriously, where did the time GO!? LOL!

    AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm feeling very excited, a little nervous and a little overwhelmed all at once!!! The Swine Flu crud caught us totally by surprise and time seemed to JUMP ahead by like 2 weeks! WHat the....?!? haha

    19 days until the wedding, and only 14 until we're IN PUERTO VALLARTA!!!

    Holy moly!!! OK, breathe... What's left to do??

    ~ Scheduled to pick up my dress on May 13th
    ~ Scheduled w/my hairstylist friend (who will be with us in MX) for May 12th to go pick out my hair (that sounds funny - hah!), and then color it to match (fun! think I'm gonna go a shade or two blonder)

    - Martin's ring is in, check.
    - My ring we're just gonna go with for now, so check.
    - Already done some MX/Jamaica clothes shopping, so that's pretty much a check.
    - Our room is reserved for us, check. (Flight too, check)
    - Have my something new, something borrowed, something blue, sixpence (on my garter belt, not in my shoe ). So still need something OLD
    - Need to get a cotton slip to wear under my dress
    - Need to confirm with photog. (already sent email)
    - Need to pick out music for DJ!
    - Need to get Martin's tie and whatever that hankie thing is they put in their pocket (lol)
    - Need to order "Bride", "Bridesmaid", "MOH" and "Just Married" crystal appliques and get tank tops for them.
    - Need to collect all my lingerie gifts from my friends since my bach party was canceled! LOL
    - Mani/pedi/eyebrow wax right before I leave
    - Send BM her luggage tag + little necklace
    - Pack (will wait until a few days before to start that)
    - Call AA re: bridal gown on airplane
    - Get Pepto/Immodium for OOT bags
    - Try to find Soduku puzzles or something similar for OOT bags
    - Maybe order Kustom Koozies saying "Rain or Swine, Puerto Vallarta MX, May 24th, 2009"
    - Figure out what else I need to finalize with Las Caletas WC
    - Get a few more tanning sessions in before we leave (tan is turning out nicely, btw!!!)


    uhhhhhmmmmmm, anything else blatantly obvious that I might be missing?? Since we didn't even know if this was on for sure as of the other week, now I'm like "OH! Sh!t!"

    ***And I don't think Martin has ANY concept of time in all of this which is bumming me out/ticking me off cause I need his help and SUPPORT! Anyone else feel this right before??

    Surprisingly, I'm not nearly as bad as I was at the 3 month countdown though! LOL

    Help me ladies - "Operation P.V.- Rain or Swine" is in FULL EFFECT! I repeat, FULL EFFECT!!!!



    *EDIT- OH, and can anyone help me think of a relatively inexpensive (under $100, less is better!), heartfelt little gift to give Martin the day of?? I did buy his wedding band, but I know he's getting me a little something and I'd like to give him a little something to remember our day by. Originally ( a long time ago) I had planned on buying him this REALLY nice watch and having it engraved but well, life got in the way! But I really would like to get him something special... I'm a gift type of person He loves watches, but most are too expensive... he just recently got a new wallet... kinda clueless on this and running outta time.

    well, its quite a list, but good thing is youve got a lot of it crossed off already! :)

    the 2 things i would ditch (altho cute ideas) are the tanks and the koozies. how long would they take to arrive? i mean, REALLY! you've only got 2 weeks, why stress?

    oh and why was your bach party cancelled? was it supposed to be down there? or because of the lyme?

    which gives me another idea for a silly tshirt or koozie:

    Jamie & Martin
    go together like
    Corona & Lyme

    sorry JL, you know i love you, i couldnt resist and i figured it would make you giggle :)

      Oh gawwwwwd. LOL Martin would love it. I probably would too, except he CANNOT STOP making Lyme puns!! Seriously, every time we see a freakin' lime he has to make a pun... It would match the card I gave him for vday tho "We go together like pain killers and alcohol"

        oh and the bach parties were canceled for 2 reasons -

        #1 - DRAMA!!!
        #2 - The crazy swine flu crap. Figured a strip club wasn't the best place to go when the flu was at it's height

          Oh and also, I have nothing personalized for my wedding which makes me kinda sad I don't need anything big, but I think those tanks and koozies would at least be something! Ya know?? (K, maybe I'm just feeling a little sorry for myself here and not being realistic? Someone smack me into shape! LOL)

            yup, yup. Especially in Ft. Worth - they way overreacted and basically shut down the whole city. But I had not been feeling so hot (had an ear infection or something on top of the Lyme, plus the DRAMA was making me feel sick too) so decided the best and most RELAXING option was just to stay home, and actually I really enjoyed my night off at home! I did get to hang out with my MOH all day on Sat tho which made me really happy - some much needed quality girl time with my best friend :)

            Maybe Martin is secretly super bummed about canceling his too? I don't know what's up with him...

              Wow! You will be leaving before you know it! YAYYYY! Like Abbie said you already have a lot of stuff completed and everything sounds so great. If you want to DIY the tanks just get the appliques at Michael's and buy tanks at Old Navy or whatever-that way u can guarantee they will be here in time. I love your koozie idea and the saying, haha! Kustom Koozies was AMAZING to work with-I used them for our e-party so I totally recommend them. I am trying to think of something you can give Martin-guys are too hard to buy for!!

                WOW... that really crept up fast...

                I am loving the 'rain or swine' quote...

                I agree with Abbie ditch the personalized stuff, you only have two weeks to go.

                A really cute gift for Martin could be... a bottle of champagne and two nice glasses for you to share when you return to your room from your reception? You could have it delivered to his room while you are getting ready with the girls? Along with a note of some sort, I think it would be memorable, and you'd have the glasses as a keepsake!

                YAY TWO WEEK COUNTDOWN IS ON!!!!!!!!!
