    Krista- I was looking at your photos this morning. SO fun!! What a great idea. You're friends are hilarious. I love all the signs. haha

    Alison- I am soo going to watch your video tonight when I get home! Can you rub some of your not obsessing personality off on me? I only obsess those last five days leading up to AF but it's like I make up for lost time. :s Anyway... acros, oh how I hate acros, lol DPO is 'days past ovulation'. Learned that this week during my five day obsession trip. Sooooooooo thanks for the well wishes but it looks like Christina will get her drink on for another month.

    Sabrina- check your email.

      YAAAAAAYYY!!! It's Friday!!! WO HOO!! I'm so excite for some relaxation this weekend, and of course, finishing wedding invites for our AHR.

      So, kinda funny story, I went to have my yearly "ladies exam" yesterday, and I wanted to get some birthcontrol because I've been off for about 2 years, to give my body a much needed hormonal break! lol! Anyway, I need some to regulate my period because it's been all over the place and now I'm supposed to have it during my wedding week!! AAAAAHHH!! So, anyways, I'm gonna get the pills and time it so my period comes later.

      Anyway, so the doctor asks me when my last period was and I told her about 2 weeks ago, and that it had come early by a week, so she says, well I'd like to do a pregnancy test just in case!! WHAT?! I started to panic, because I didn't know that could be a sign of pregnancy. anyway, I did the test and it was negative - PHEWPF! It's kinda funny because everyone is wanting to get pregnant, but not me, at least not right now! I'm half way into my masters, man would that throw a wrench into plans! WHOA! And I've never actually had a pregnancy test done before, so that made me a little anxious too, it kinda got me thinking, what if I was pregnant? YIKES!

      Krista I saw your photos on facebook and that looked awesome!!! I love all the funny sayings/writings your friends did on that board, and their facial expressions to match! That was awesome! How did you pull that photo booth off? Did you set it up yourself, or was there a company/photographer that did it for you?

      Have a great weekend ladies!! :)

        Krista - I got the idea from a friend's wedding and then I got my photographer to do it. It was so easy. She set up a roll of photo paper (the white background) and she had some lights up and she just took the pictures. We started buying fun props around halloween and then when another occassion would come up we would head to the dollar store and see what they had. It was so fun and it's like a photo guestbook.

        Chris - it will happen girlie - stop thinking so much about it!! I know easier said then done, but just enjoy the process of trying. You need to head down this way soon - come for a bbq and a swim. That goes for any one else that wants to head this way as well - the door is always open - unless of course it's closed and the lights are off :P

        Alison - watching your video at work and it's making me teary. Great job!! What an amazing way to remember it all!!

          Alison - I love your wedding video! It may me all teary!! Especially cause I could hear your hubby crying, and he tells you how beautiful your eyes are - what a sweetie!! :) And I love the part at the end when he kisses you and you can hear you say I wanted to kiss you the whole time, and he says you're beautiful! You guys are such a sweet couple!! I also love the part when your dad is giving a speech, and he says he's not losing a daughter, but gaining a son, along with a baseball team, two football teams, etc...LOL! Having a wedding video of your wedding day is so great! I hope my video turns out as wonderful as yours!

          I got lots accomplished this weekend for wedding stuff so I'm feeling pretty good! I also took pictures! YAY! :) I completed my invitations for AHR, as well as shirts for me, maid of honour, FMIL, and my mom. I got my "i do" stickers put on my shoes, and also got started on our wedding ceremony script (about half done). I also did my ring holder - DIY seashell with bow and sand to match my guest book and pen.

          Anyway, I'm going to post all of this stuff next month when I do my planning thread, but I thought I would post a few pics here as teasers! WHOA! I can't believe my wedding is only 8 weeks away! It seems like just yesterday I was living vicariously through you February brides as you were doing last minute preparations.

          So, here is the TTD that I found and my reception/party dress is next to it: Click the image to open in full size.

          Here's my DIY guestbook (bought it white and decorated it with my own ribbon and seashells, same with pen), the ring shell is one that I got from Newfoundland (where my family is originally from - so that's my something old - and also special to me! - I decorated the ring shell using same ribbon as well. And my bouquets match also - were made by an etsy seller Click the image to open in full size.

          Here are the invitations (DIY) that we did for our AHR: Click the image to open in full size.

            Wow Krista! Your stuff looks awesome! Great DIY job :) I love the shirts! And your dresses are pretty, all looks great!

            The parts you named about the wedding video are my fav parts too. It was so weird not seeing Austin the day of- we are always together and getting ready for such a big event was strange- but I LOVED seeing him at the end of the aisle (that part was awesome)... and he had had an emotional day (that was the closest to crying I have seen) so all I was thinking was that I wanted to give him a hug n kiss.... n my daddy gives a killer toast :)

            Your day is going to be amazing!!

I was on ortho nuva and went off in january and also did the pray and pull, but I think we are in the unnormal catagory. We Are now close to 9 weeks and everyone knows! Thank god cause I am aweful at secrets. Some minor morning sickness but nothing major no change in waistline yet thankfully. I am obsessed with oranges that's my major craving! Krista love the photos and I agree cute shoes and shirts! 8 weeks soooo cool!

                  Krista- Thanks for sharing!! Love the hot pink shoes! Love everything actually. The t-shirts are really cute. I wish I had done stuff like that! Fun. :) 8 weeks!!! WOW

                  Yay Brooke your first appt.! So exciting!! My co-worker finally announced to everyone on Fri. that she is pregnant- she is 12 weeks now. She showed me pictures of her ultra sound... amazing you can already see the form of a baby. Really neat.

                  I'll have to wait another month to see if the stork will deliver me anything... aunt flo officially arrived on Saturday. LOL I drank my sorrows away this weekend.

                  Good news! I finally finished my office, so hopefully this week I'll have some time to go through all the pictures. Still waiting on the arrival of my Thank-You cards. I am thinking to just send those out empty now. I was going to include a picture but now I feel like just getting them in the mail. I suppose that's lazy of me, but I am also tired of spending money.

                    oh well, I guess that's how it goes. The"trying" part isn't too shabby though! It'll happen!!

                      Agreed! All in due time. I am so busy right now with home renos... I just want to be done by the time I finally am pregnant so I can just relax and incubate, LOL
