      Good for you! I have many things still, but I'm trying to be calm because I don't want to totallly freak out!!! Do something little each day so it does not get too overwhelming!

        haha, yeah - trying to stay calm. Yesterday was just a bad day - I was just being totally PISSY the whole day LOL. BUT I am feeling better today!!! :) :)

        Also - I got my Kustom Koozies ordered!!!!! I am SOOOOO excited about this!!! They will be lime green with blue print and read:
        "Rain or Swine!"

        Just got off the phone with the lady and she extended me a 20% discount plus half off the rush fee! (Kustom Koozies) They should arrive by May 15th! Just in time!!!

          Sounds like you are getting things done!! It's so stressful & exciting all at the same time!!! I remember my "OMG we leave in 2 weeks" thread!!! It's seems like ages ago!!
          Don't stress too much - it will all get done!!

          For a gift, since Martin loves watches (as does DH!), a nice gift could be a watch jewellery box. Here are a few I found online...
          "The Roxanne" watch_box
          4 Watch Travel (Oversized Watches) 53 mm max.
          4 Watch Case Leather-Black
          Leather Watch Cases - Black Leather Men's Watch Collectors Case
          Watch Display Cases - Black Leatherette 6 Collector Watch Display Case

          You could even get a plaque engraved to attach to it...a cute saying could be "For keeping track of every minute of the rest of our lives together - Jamie & Martin, May 24, 2009" or something like that.

          Good Luck sweetie!! Can't wait to hear all about it when you get back!!

            Ooooh, what a GREAT idea! Only I bet he'd think there was a watch in there! LOL But still, good idea, me likey! Wonder where I could get a plaque engraved to attach to it in time... and then, how would I attach it??

            If someone could help me with that info, I'd REALLY appreciate it! Think this is a great gift idea for him :) :) :)

            Just wanted to pop in your thread and wish you the best of luck. i know it's hard not to stress but just to to relax and absorb it all in. It really does go by waaaaay to fast.

            I agree with Jules - where did the time go? I totally remember your trip when martin popped the question!

              Amanda: Oooh, ok - maybe I can just write him a little note in the card I'm going to give him about your suggestion "For keeping track of every minute of the rest of our lives together"

              I LOVE this one, and it's on sale - $60 off!! So only $100! Perfect! Just gotta check on shipping... if anyone has any idea on engraving it though I'm still ALL EARS!

                You're right...he might think there is a watch in there!! Maybe you could change the saying...or put a note in the box saying that you will add to the box at a later date TBD!

                Or this one just has his monogram...

                or this one...
                Gift Idea: Personalized Gifts - Watch Case

                This one you can engrave, but it will put you over the $100 limit once you include shipping & personalization!

                This one is sharp looking...

                and it has a bunch of other options on the side as well.

                Leather Watch Box - Black or Brown Multiple 5 Watch Holder Jewelry Case

                You've got lots of options girl - but not a lot of time...get to it!!!
                If you need anymore help let me know! :)

                    Btw, this is the email I *just* got back from Watch Winder Watch Cases.com|Automatic Watch Winders |Orbita Winder Watch Boxes Eilux

                    Jaime Miller,

                    The reason we have the $100 limit is we would loose money on such a sale with the 10% coupon. The item is already reduced.
                    Sorry, the prices are what they are. We should probably raise them back to the normal price since they
                    will likely sell out at full price. Go ahead and place your order if you can afford to spend slightly more than you
                    initially planned, otherwise good luck in your quest for a different gift.

                    Sincerely,

                    Seriously, you can't forgive the THREE CENT difference?!?! I thought it was a tasteful way of being rude personally. I'm torn - I love the box, but I am not liking the way they handled this (not to mention I ALREADY needed to order it!!). I'm in sales, and I'd waive the THREE CENT DIFFERENCE just to get repeat clients!!



                    SO now I'm torn, do I go against what I'm feeling towards them and buy the box anyways? Or do I look for something else (or go with a different company)??
