Yes they are te 8 by 11 size but that's not the size after you fold them.. they turn out to be 4 by 3..
I think I understand what your trying to say I think thats a good idea.. but maybe not duotangs since they are big.
I wil definitely need to re read your post a couple of more times lol but I know I can fully understand
Any other ideas besides a duetang, something smaller maybe?

Holy Michele!! Your numbers jumped AGAIN! Yay for you!! We're still waiting on about six couples and while I'm 99% sure that two of those are not coming, I still felt the need to harass them a little more cheesy.gif

 

Tracy - if your spanish pages are smaller you could buy the little 20pg photo albums from the dollar store and insert your stuff in there? Plus, those soft plastic albums usually have front/back covers that you can replace so they would be super easy for you to personalize. And with so few to put together it should take no time at all :)

That's an awesome idea! You could probably find all kinds of albums at Michaels if you have one nearby. Or a scrapbooking store might be a good place to try too.

I don't have a Michaels close by msncry.gif the close's one would be in Ottawa.. a 2 hour drive and I've done that drive for Michaels alread.. not worth it unless I'm in Cornwall.
But I definitely have scrapbook stores around here, especially downtown. That'll be my thing to do tomorrow lol .

And I laughed at your comment about folding me to put in your pocket. If that means an extra vacation for me, I'll start stretching!!!

Hi everyone!

I'm starting to get antsy bc i don't have any plans for a BD shoot but it's something I definitely want to do! Erin, I wish I could have made it happen when you were getting yours done, it would have been a blast to do it together.

This is the first time i feel like i'm on a mega time crunch with the wedding. It's always seemed so far away until now!

 

We received our first physical wedding gift today- a copper frying pan. It's nice, but it was pretty funny opening the box and finding a frying pan. Somehow I feel like I should be a bit more excited about wedding gifts? Don't tell the sender wink.gif

Bed Bath & Beyond lets you return gifts for cash but DF is way opposed to this- he thinks it's being deceptive! I think I'd rather have a new TV fund/house fund than a frying pan.... hehe

lol!! a frying pan.. I get it.. as we're in debt and want to clean it off to get a house (We live in a apartment, and the people who live under us fight all the time.. but I mean fight where things get tossed around for hours.. my place actually shakes and we live in a soundproof place!!)

So I can completely understand where your coming from. Maybe you can keep this frying pan and start getting it out word of mouth you guys prefer cash to put towards a house/honeymoon.. whatever.

 

I am in the same boat as you about the BD session. I had a photographer who did my e-shoot..she was going to do it, then had to move last min.

So I thought I found another one.. but it's been a hassle just trying to confirm a date.

I feel at a lost with this. And I really want to do it too.. sad.gif

kim i wish you could have done the bd shoot with us too! i'll keep my fingers crossed that you can fit it in. there's a lady in dayton who has pretty awesome pictures and does BD at her newly designed studio. let me know if you want her info!

 

tracy, i hope you can get your pics in soon too! why do the littlest things have to be so hard sometimes??

 

i would totally return the stuff to BB&B for cash! paying off debt and creating a home fund is WAY better than pans in my opinion!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
