Jenna - that's a really good idea about getting the vacuum packages for your towels! I really liked that idea but wasn't sure how I'd have gotten them all packed so you answered that question!
All of your to-do lists seem so easy right now compared to mine! Maybe it's because I haven't written out an updated one recently enough but all I keep thinking is how much I still have left and how little time I have to get it all done. I'm always so busy in the evenings that it just doesn't leave me time to get much accomplished.
This weekend is a write-off as well since I've got my stagette all day Saturday and through the evening. My sister (and MOH) has been working SO HARD to get all of it planned and then yesterday I nearly called off the whole thing. FI got back from his boys weekend and lets just say that it did not go over well for me. I'm in a seriously bad place with a whole bunch of our friends right now (the guys who planned his weekend) but am stuck because all their effort really meant a lot to FI. If our wedding was a week away I probably wouldn't even want them there. It's that bad. BUT I'm working on sucking it up because of how important it was to FI and so the show must go on - which means for me too! The girls were all keeping it a surprise but yesterday my sister told me because she was just too excited! Haha! We're going to play PAINT BALL and then go to her house and get cleaned up, hot tub, get ready for dinner and then go ROLLER SKATING!!!!! Both of those were my suggestions/requests for events to do and I get them BOTH so I'm really pumped. We're all dressing up in 70's costumes for roller skating too so it should be pretty funny to see everyone.
I'm really sorry things didn't turn out the way you wanted, and now your stuck in not such a good place. What exactly happen if you mind sharing? if not I completely understand!
I am sure you'll get your list done before the due date, no worries.
I too completely lost a weekend (this past weekend) from my bachelorette, so I can relate.
I am so happy your girls are doing exactly what you requested, those are good friends!!
Tracy - I've been thinking about the something new, old, borrowed and blue... Our colors are navy blue and white, and I'll be carrying a bouquet of white calla lilie's and the stems will be wrapped in navy blue ribbon, so that takes care of the blue. Something new is the the new life together. Something old will be my grandmothers wedding band that my mom is giving to me on our weddind day. I'm a little stuck on the something borrowed part. What are you girls borrowing?? Any suggestions??
Something blue: garter
I'm stuck and something borrowed and something old.
Wish I could help you out, looks like we're stuck in the same place!
So I got kicked off the list again...

Jenna ~ we are honeymooning at the Valentin from April 3-10. Maybe we will catch a glimpse of your wedding! So exciting!
So, I am now 18 days away from the start of our vacation and am slowly finishing up everything.
SO EXCITED NOW!
sorry, seems like a lot of us are getting kicked off, I'll take your list and save it.
Your list also looks pretty managable! How long do you expect your order to take to come in? like I was saying I'm waiting for 6 out of towners to see if they are booking, they said they will if they book it'l be 2-3 weeks before the trip.If they come I have to run away making their OOT bags, I'd have to order the bags from vista print, I hope I'd have enough time before we left.
I'm also waiting for my order from weddingstar, can take 3-4 weeks (if 4 it'll be the week we leave!!!!!!!!!!!!)
