      Hi shells,
      I go in with an agent when clients are looking to list their homes and I find ways to increase the asking and sale price of the home... I will have carpets removed and new floors put in. Or update bathrooms and kitchens. I change countertops, sinks, vanities and light fixtures.. Paint and restore kitchens. Very baord specturm. I also have a cleaning business and homes get detailed before they go on the market. I can usually increase the asking price for about 5 to 15 thousand. I get a percentage of the increase in asking price. I also stage the home for sale. I am not sure if you do facebook I have a few projects on my facebook.
      Tinkatude: I am bring talbe centrepieces and some other decorations for around the tables and the pool area I pales with candles. I do this kinda stuff for a living so it makes it pretty easy for me with ideas.
      Hi Erica and Chris... Hugs!!!!!!
      well ladies i am off for my tan

        You can tell we are all getting closer. Post in the lunch time area and if you don't get back till the next night there are 3 pages to catch up on! LOL....thank God for you guys. I just told FI I was going on here to catch up with my girls and he started laughing and asked if I was nuts? lol...little does he know

        Susie - if you don't mind all of us descending on you, it would be great to come. Lets see...friends, a roof over our heads, a pool.....that sounds fine to me! Its is awesome and so generous of you to offer! I am in for the planning, but if you guys are waiting till March, I think I may be the last one getting married in our group, so I won't be back till then anyhow. AHR will be end of March, but that should be a piece of cake (I hope!).

        Welcome back Erica

        Welcome to the new ladies too.....I think I have a bunch of sand ceremony stuff....I am pretty sure I saved it, but the link Brooke told you about has most the stuff I have. I will check and send you what I have.

        Tink....I agree with bringing as many receipts as you can, but something another bride did a couple years ago and she posted about, was she made signs. Everything in the luggage that was for the wedding got some sort of sign that read "For the wedding of XXX and XXX". I am going to do this for everything and put down the wedding date and resort name on it. I am hoping btw the receipts and the signs it is too much hassle to tear it all apart!

        About 12 years ago a gf and I went to Mexico and planned on buying tons of the blankets to bring back. So...we packed a small suitcase in the big suitcase and stuffed all the extra clothes and stuff around the edges. The only way to get the small suitcases in the big ones though - we had to turn them upside down with the opening at the back of the large one. So when we got the red light you can imagine our panic! The customs lady took one look inside our suitcase, looked back at us and the ginormous line up behind us...shook her head and just closed it all back up! Woohooo:) So maybe that could happen again?

          Okay, so I had a really good day guys. I am off so I got a bunch of running around done....went for the second fitting and the dress is coming along nicely. They are going to add wider chiffon straps to it because the straps as they are just about make me bleed. Its really bad....10 mins in the dress and it looks like i have been carrying around a 50 pound backpack in a strapless top. So huge relief and I can go back to loving my dress:)

          Also, getting my inspiration from all you guys, I have been looking for a photographer to do a BD shoot. Without a lot of notice. Well the lady whose work I really like...we connected tonight and she is fitting me in on a Sunday in 2.5 weeks! I am so excited!!! Except of course now I have another thing to do, but it is all good:) Thanks for the idea - I don't think I would have come up with that one on my own.

          Now I am off to work on my guest book...making that puppy from scratch!

          Oh...and Susie....do you have a big pot for that stupid stew? I have a few people I would like to add.....

          TTYL Ladies!

                      Is everyone following the tradition: something old....new....borrowed....blue?
                      I'm not doing anything very traditional, but keep thinking about this old saying.
                      Anyway, one of my close gf's called tonight and asked if there was anything from her wedding that I want to borrow......hell ya......so I'm now wearing a really great flower hairpiece that she wore.
                      Now for something old.....hmmmm
