Well, I think being off work kept me even more busy! Spent the day running arounf driving FH, shopping and going to appointments.

 

Love you dress Meghan, you look fabulous! The open corset back is great! And your "cup" at the bachelorette...

Congratulation, nice that you had a little celebration afterwards.

Meghan, forgot to mention, how cute you guys look. Love the new pic!!!! Thanks for sharing.

 

UPDATE

My friend actually booked today what.gif

Now I'm stuck rushing to make a bag for her (luckily I ordered an extra bag!!!)

She called me while I was shopping for it all, asking what I was doing... I told her, and she thought it was funny. I had to explain to her, I had a million other things I could be doing instead.

I totally regret inviting her, but I did it out of courtesy, not thinking she'd actually show!!! OOPS!!!!!!!

OMG, this is so crazy... At least you know she truly wanted to be there, but what a stress. Hope this is the last one!

 

It is nice and sunny outside, and should get very hot. And it's my last day before leaving!!!

Yay congrats! I think having the legal stuff ahead of time will definitely help with the nerves in Mexico! Glad to hear that you made a good day out of it with your picnic too wink.gif

Yeah pretty annoying, Like I said to FI I guess she is a true friend, it's just the way she goes about doing things, is very stressful on people .She thinks differently thats for sure, not on the same level as the rest of us!! I tell ya I have some special friends.

I know someone on here had put aloe in the small bottles (was it you Meghan?!) I'm sorry I can't remember. I was wondering if you or anyone had a label for this? I can't get anymore of the aloe's I bought for the new comer, so I figured I'd just squirt some into the smaller bottle I got at the dollar store. And you all know I'm label crazy! lol
thanks!!!
Tracy - SO weird that your friend still thought it was okay to book even though you'd mentioned the 'deadlines' your wedding coordinator had already given a little while ago.
And Yes I was totally the one putting aloe in smaller bottles and I do have the label template but it's on my work computer and I'm at home! When do you need it by? I'll be near my office in the next couple of days anyways so I can do it but just not right away.


And thank you to everyone for the compliments on the dress!! It was definitely great to find everything I wanted in a single dress. The funny thing is that it was from a smaller store and I honestly think if I hadn't been to all the bigger stores first, I would never have chosen it anyways. Strange how that works!!

tracy, i can't believe your friend booked! you know how everyone always says though that the people who want to be there will make it.. seems like she is one of those surprising ones! and i cracked up when i saw that you wanted labels for the little aloe bottles!! you'll have to count how many different labels you made at some point! :)

 

wendy, congrats on being a (secret) mrs!! one step down.. you'll get to the big ceremony soon!

 

kim, i was going to say.. if mayor mallory takes time out of his day to do weddings it wouldn't surprise me much bit! he seems like a bit of a nut!

 

all the OOT bags and the bridesmaid bouquets are officially out of my hands!! we had a mini "rehearsal dinner" last night for FI's birthday so i passed out all that stuff then! my to do list is ridiculously small now! and i can't believe jenna's wedding is TOMORROW!! our first april wedding is already here!!

Wow, everybody was very quiet today, what's happening? LOL

 

I managed to do everything on my list, and everything is packed except the toothbrushes! I spend the whole morning at the mall, trying on stuff, because this morning I woke up to the thought that I hadn't bought any "special" outfit for the wedding night embarrest.gif I found out a cute little slip in bright pink satin with a black lace border, I think that should do! I wanted white at first, but this one was so cute, and nothing wow in white. Also got undies for the dress, settled for turquoise, was shooting for light blue, but nothing to be found. Finally I bought 2 cute "decent" nighties, thought it would be nice to hang out on the balcony in the morning. The only problem I have is how will I get to sleep tonight, I'm full of energy. Have a great week girls, hope it will go fast for you and real SLOOOOW for me and Jenna!

Sorry guys I've been missing in action. I've been soo busy trying to get everything done. I get my period during the week, and those times, nothing gets done.

 

It's insane, how my friend booked. Like some of you said, She really wanted to be there. But she took a chance by still booking when I gave her a deadline!! Now I'm getting calls 'what do I wear?' I told her not to stress me over stupid things like that. UGH ppl!!!

It's 10:52 I never wake up this early, but I can't sleep!!!! the whole wedding is going through my head, and I'm excited to be on the beach (I'm like a little child waiting for xmas to come)

 

Sooooooooo I packed all my summer clothes, and it's 29 with humidity today!!! def not complaining, but sheesh everythings packed lol!!!

 

Hope your all have a good weekend. I'll be dropping some bags off this weekend, as some guest leave Wednesday!!!

 

LOL Erin,

So after I read your post, I counted 8 labels... not sure if that's the exact count. But during the week I'll look it up and post them just in case.

I made my aloe label lol, I'll post a little after.

 

Julie,

Got you on the list!! :)

Amazing, you had a good day then yesterday shopping!!! Any sales? lol WHere'd you go?

 

Meghan,

Hows the bouquet's coming along? I loved the look of them, they looked so real!!!

I actually thought! since I'll only need 1 flower for each centerpiece, and I only have 3 of them I can get 3 real flowers when I'm down there for them!! this way I can ditch the fake ones all together (I'll still bring them incase the real ones are way out of my budged)

Tracy I can't sleep either - i was up all night with my mind racing about all things wedding - Plus we ran into FI's aunt last night at the mall, who we invited to the DW and she said no, and apparently my FMIL told her about the AHR, but FI told me not to put her on the list - so she's not - and now she needs to be added....but my parents are making that thing, and my mom is a pain with adding people...so I was thinking about that too.

 

We're having a beautiful day in NJ today - I have so much to do - hoping to get something done

Laundry - like 4 loads

Packing

 

I bought 4 little sparkly hair clips last night - I'll take a pic of them.

I'm glad I'm not the only one (not happy your not sleeping either tho) all while FI is still sleeping!!! makes me mad lol how he can sleep with no worries or stress. , just sleeps!!

 

Aww, I'm sorry to hear about the aunte situtation, that can be a little frustrating.

When are you having your AHR?

Mine is suppose to be July 10th, but we haven't booked anything and I wont until we come back. Still trying to get out of it, it's more for my parents then for us. They want to show off their only daughter to all the friends and family ,I just see no point.

 

Will the clips be for the wedding day? Can't wait to see! Glad your also getting nice weather, if anyone deserved it, it'd be def you guys. You went through a lot this winter.

Nice- it must feel great to have most of your list checked off. I know what you mean, one of us is getting married today! It's crazy.

That's too funny that it got hot as soon as you packed! I'm giggling to myself over your labels, too- but they all look so great!

That's a good idea about the flowers- I'm sure they won't be too much but definitely take your fake ones as a backup.
