Oh Krista, I'm so sorry to hear about the troubles you are having with SIL. That really sucks when people force you to cut them out of your life. The sad part is the people who always end up suffering are not the ones who caused shit in the first place. Stay strong girl and try not to let it bother you (although I know that's easier said than done).
Ali - I haven't received my dress yet, but I had it sent to the inlaws, don't want FI accidentally seeing it, even though it's a TTD. lol....I'm going over there tomorrow so hopefully I can try it on!
Chris - I'm so glad you got your pics!!! I love them!! Especially the one where you are walking away from your wedding site and the clouds are overhead. I know you said you wanted sunshine for your day, but the cloudiness of the sky really adds a dramatic backdrop! It's beautiful! I also really like the one where you are laughing/smiling when you hubby is kissing you in front of the beach. I like the sepia tones -gives it a unique feel! And your expression is priceless! I'm sorry to hear about your coworker. I think we can all empathize with having a crappy coworker! I feel the same way about being upstaged because when I started working here there was a pregnant girl in our office and she has had her baby, and now there is another girl who is pregnant who is due at the end of July, so everyone is all about her pregnancy, and no one, I mean no one has asked me about my wedding. sometimes I bring it up and everyone is just kinda like "oh, that's nice"...
I'm planning on inviting my coworkers to my AHR (we have a small office of about 10 - mostly women - which is another reason why I thought they'd be excited about wedding stuff), but anyways, makes me not want to invite them...bah....LOL!
Tricia - I saw your reception pics on facebook and they are gorgeous! I loved you centerpieces and the brick in front of the building - so cute!!
I'd love to do fall in NYC (I've never been - well actually I went when I was weee young, because my fam lived in the GTA (greater toronto area) until I was 10, but I don't remember anything about our trip there, so it's like I've never been. Anyways, it will depend on when in the fall since I will be back to taking classes at that point. 2 masters classes while working full time can be a little hectic! Neuropsychology and Mental Testing....ugh...I have a feeling it's going to be a brutal wakeup call after my wonderful wedding and summer of bliss!
Oh, if we NYC, can I bring hubby? Cause he's never been and I'm pretty sure he would hate me if I went without him...lol....
Speaking of school, tonight is my final assignment and then I'm done until September!! YAY!!! I think I might just have a couple glasses of vino tonight!
