Hey Krista- our officiant made it very clear that we HAD to sign our names exactly as on our passport. Like no pressure or anything, lol to have them look the same. So uhm no, you can't sign with your new married name. :)

 

I like the idea of the punch bowls, provided they aren't too big and take up too much space. Logisitically it might be difficult to pull off... and you might have punch juice spilt all over your tables... something to think about.

I have to admit its a little weird that you guys all know my secret and nobody in my family does. I just don't want any of our relatives to say anything to someone or get harassed all night. Krista- I like the punch bowl idea but agree with Chris what are you putting underneath the bowl?

Hey ladies thanks for the advice! I hadn't really thought about the spilling thing. Mmm...I'll have to check with FI's mom, since she is the one planning everything. I know she was planning to borrow table clothes from her church, but I don't think they would appreciate big stains on their table clothes. We may have to rethink this!

 

The other option is those lemonade/iced tea holders that have the cute little spouts. If you get a clear one then you can still decorate the punch with berries, lemons, etc and you will be able to see them through the clear plastic. That way, no body would be spilling....mmm....food for thought!

 

How are new mommies to be doing? Feeling okay?

Anything with no spilling is much better of an option!

So far so good no morning sickness and just some light bleeding which they say is normal. Erica & Krista- I am keeping my fingers crossed for you guys!

Chris - Yes, I know that some of these women on the forum have been trying for a long time and they are very irritable but I've joined a few groups with 30 something woman TTC #1... so it's been very helpful since we are all going through the same thing. I've learned so much and got some great info/tips from reading their posts!

 

Brooke - I your ticker! So cute. Now we can keep up with your pregnancy too!!! AF isn't due until April 16th so now I have to wait till next week to see if we were successful! Thanks for th support and keeping your fingers crossed! Send me some of your magical baby mojo/dust!

 

Krista - I like the punchbowl idea but all I can think about is spillage, condensation and little kids dipping their hands in the bowls because it's so colorful and yummy! What about having one of those punch fountains and then people just stick their cups under the fountain and fill their cup up. I also liked those at receptions! When we got married at the courthouse (before MX) I signed our license with my "new" last name. It was the first time I was able to use it legally. And I can't lie, I did practice alot writing it before hand. I'm still perfecting it though. Good Luck! We are here for you!

Hi Ladies, just checking in...

 

Brooke, love the ticker, so cute... your baby is already smarter than Paris Hilton ha ha ...

 

Krista (July)... in Jamaica they told us to sign our unmarried names... I was a spinster and he a bachelor (doesnt sound fair!!)

 

Krista (Feb)... what part of FLA are you coming to? Id say lets do lunch but the chances of you being near me are pretty remote... the weather is central Florida has been to die for this past week. Low 80s and beautiful blue skies. Water temp is up to 68 already (we had such a nasty-for us- winter).

 

 

We not focused on baby making, our honeymoon is in 2 months :) Just following the fertility window and expecting itll happen sometime. I am finally able to run again after over a year with plantar fascitis and so we are enjoying that together (its one of our common interests).. and next weekend we go to NYC (my first time since I was a kiddo)... One of Austin's groomsmen lives in Manhattan and one of my GFs (who came with us to Jamaica) hit it off and are doing the bicoastal (LA NY) romance for a bit. We are all meeting up for a romantic weekend. Also my gf and I get all of Monday to shop while the boys work (very excited for that!)... Timberly, do you have a suggestion for

where to shop? Like more affordable than Gucci but not too bohemian? Wanna come shopping on Monday the 19th? :)

Hi Ladies! Thanks for all the suggestions about punch. I'm thinking I will not do it now...we are doing inside Timberly, but part of the venue is outside, like a beautiful fenced in courtyard that is attached and there's some seating out there, so the doors will probably be open most of the time. Mmm...guess I didn't really think that through so well! Ah well, back to my original plan of seashells and candles! :) Maybe I'll sprinkle petals on the tables for colour instead.

 

Brooke - that ticker is awesome. Especially the part about how your baby's brain is still tiny, but still has more brain cells than Paris Hilton BAHHHHHAAAHHHAA!! LMAO!! My coworkers probably think I'm crazy because I started laughing hysterically in my office!

 

So, it seems some of you have had to sign your original name and Erica had to sign her new name. I'm gonna start practicing my new name just in case :) lol

 

My classes are over next week ladies so you know what that means! Wedding planning overdrive!! LOL! I can't believe that it's exactly 3 months today to the eve of my wedding! I know I won't be able to sleep. I'll have to go for a 5 kilo run or something just to get my body to be tired enough to crash that night. LOL.

 

Anyway, next week, once my final assignment is done, I'm going to start taking pictures of all my stuff so I can start on my planning thread. I'm going to do it a bit at a time so that it doesn't pile up on me. My newest addition is going to be my awesome TTD that I'm buying from Ali! :) I'm so excited for it! I've been looking for a great TTD that is an actual wedding dress but not too expensive. And she purchased them from a charity, so I know the money went to a great cause!! Oh yeah, and two more friends booked!! YAY!!

 

Christina, any more pics to show us??

Krista- The charity ttd is awesome!! Wow its only 3 months. That time has flown by! I guess that me, Susie, Ali and Timberly better start to get our plans to go to mexico for your wedding together.

I haven't gotten around to my review or my planning thread and I am actually feeling bad about it but I just don't have the time with the move and everything. It doesn't help that my laptop is broken either right now. Grrrr.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
