michele, your AHR is even before our wedding date! i'm so glad mel will still be here with me until the end of the month!!

 

so this week is: julie, kimmy, martin and michele! amazing! i can't wait until everyone's pictures start rolling in!

 

meghan, i hope everything is still going smoothly with your packing, flowers, etc!

 

so i managed to get another day off of work before we leave! now i have thursday and friday off and we leave saturday the 24th. hopefully that will be plenty of time to get things organized. right now i'm just throwing everything that i want to pack and won't need until then in a big bin and then we can sort out how it's all going to get down there with us! getting things home is another story altogether!

I am running out of time as well, it's so hard to accomplish things. My FI works in the evening and me in the day we can't seem to accomplish anything.

 

Congrats! julie, kimmy, martin and michele! and whomever I might have missed! Our time has FINALLY arrived!

Erin - I have to admit that I'm envious of you having a few extra days off! I'm already contemplating whether I need to grab some extra time and just work a couple weekends once we're back to make up for it :S

 

I started packing my clothes last night - okay mostly choosing my bikinis! - and then have a mental list going of other clothes i want to bring. Guaranteed that if I don't get that stuff pulled out of my closet tonight then I'll completely forget in a heartbeat!

 

I think I finished my flowers for the most part, and now it's just a matter of figuring out how the girls can get them down there without getting them completely squished along the way!

Yep, I'll be here until the end! We leave for Halifax a week from tomorrow, but I'll be taking the laptop so I'll be popping in every once in a while. I've got to get packing tonight- I want to have all of my wedding things and resort clothes packed, plus things to wear in NS (minus anything I need for this week). Last week of work is this week! I am so excited.

I'm so glad I took an extra long weekend this week- I got a lot done. I put together my DIY projects (I'll post up some pics later) and I cleaned my house from top to bottom. I wanted to do my spring cleaning before we left and things are starting to sparkle around here! I have a bit more to do today but I got almost everything that I wanted to do, done. I only have one day off this coming weekend and then the day before we leave so I'm glad I was productive or I'd be stressing all week.

Almost done packing - I'm going to have to switch pocketbooks the day before - We each get one checked bag for free and the 2nd one is only $25 so not too bad - my bags can "nest' inside each other so the one that has my OOT stuff and decorations can go inside the other one.

Our AHR is May 22 - invites are going out Monday - my mom was ok with adding another guest - she's handling these invites and RSVPs - I have enough on my plate right now.

I kind of wish I took this whole week off - unfortunately i don't get paid if I don't work so it's hard - definitely need the $$$ - finding it hard to concentrate on things!

Hope you all have a nice Easter -
Ah, me too we have to be at the airport for 3:50 smile27.gif our flight is at 6:50.But I may consider booking my seat a head of time so we only have to b there 2 hours before instead of 3.And my mom wants to drive us so we can show her where she needs to go the following day.
I can't believe it's coming!!
I agree, worth being able to be there all done, plus we are the second people to land so I get to greet the rest of the guest which I'm happy about.
I def wont sleep Friday night tho lol.

Wow!!! your really pushing it with time for your AHR and your ceremony down south. At least it'll be out of the way for the summer, and you guys can just enjoy being newlyweds!!

I feel you, I've never had a salary job, so I always had to go to work, as I always (still do) need the money. I remember being so sick I should have been in the hospital, but I worked instead for 9 days (2 of those were 12 hour shifts)
I can relate, it sucks!! sad.gif
It's almost over th, and you can have a break (it's exactly what I told FI today, it's coming so fast he doesn't want to work anymore lol)

Michele - it's going to be so hard to sleep on Wednesday night knowing that you have to get up so early anyways! Hopefully you're one of those people who can sleep on the plane. And everyone don't forget your neck pillows too!

Tracy - we're flying with Westjet so each person is allowed two pieces of luggage weighing 20kgs (44lbs) per piece within certain size measurements. Plus we're allowed two pieces of carry-on baggage too but since I have my dress and everything to worry about, I'm hoping to only have one piece of carry-on. I'm not even sure that we'll use three full bags between FI and I combined, maybe four depending how our mugs pack in to the rest. So right now I've got two bags that I'll have to pass off which is easy with our friends flying down with us. And like Michele, everything extra that I pack will easily all fit into a single piece for the return trip so there won't be any worries at all coming home. I'll just have to worry about hiding a few bottles of liquor cheesy.gif

LOL good one Meghan, I def wont forget my airplan pillow, just bought it actually, and it went right into the carry - on. Thanks for the reminder!!

OMG, aren't you lucky with your luggage, we are allowed 2 pieces but they both have to equal 44lbs (not each but total)
SO yeah we got stuck having to FEDEX the oot bags to the out of towners so they can pack their own bags. Plus most of the wedding stuff I handed to my mom, and BM's. and it's $10 for every 2.2 pounds your over 44lbs. It's insane!!!!

Yup, we're in the same boat, too. 6:50am flight. But that's okay b/c it's worth it to get to the resort early in the day. At least that's what I'll be telling myself when my alarm goes off, LOL!

LOL!! yup that's what I'll be telling myself too when the alarm goes off at 2:30am (I usually go to bed at that time, so it'll be hard to even fall asleep early, I actually think I'm more nervous about waking up so darn early, then the actual wedding day)
