She told me this morning she maybe able to get them back in school by monday or tuesday, it has been two weeks already. I told FI I am relaxing this weekend "totally".
      I am having no luck finding the white and silver fannings!!! No one that still has them in my size ships to Canada.
      Ok amazing what we share with each other!!! I have to tell you this because I am shaking my head. I separated 7 years ago and the kid and the dog came to live with me. During our separation and agreement it was agreed that our son and the dog go to the Ex's every second weekend. Well the son is now 20 and doesn't do the weekend visits anymore. OK sitting down for this? My Ex still holds me to this agreement and I have to give him the dog every second weekend by 6pm Friday evening. So here is the Ex outside waiting in his jeep for baby Babe to come running out and hop in with her little sweater on. My neighbour just called I guess she was in the driveway when he came by to pick her up. She thinks we're totaly mental!!!! Laughing yet
      Speaking of weight loss, who is dieting and any bright ideas about how to stay motivated? I realized yesterday that we have 3 months (today less!) until the wedding and I would really like to lose 15lbs and I am good for a few days and then fall off of the wagon again... my FI doesnt seem concerned but I REALLY want to look my best wearing that pretty dress etc... not to mention laying out on the beach!

      Any suggestions? I have seen that some of the girls on here have lost stacks of lbs!!

      I have about 5 lbs I am working on, with a strong focus on toning... my secret weapon: spinning!!!! never had an ass so nice before, LMAO

She was feeling that I was cutting corners with cost and she understands I am still paying off my son's schooling and trying to get my business going. She offered my FI money towards our wedding. Which he politely declined and said we're fine. Which we totally are and would never accept her help. Love her dearly however we're both over 40 and yeah if we don't have our crap together at this point we shouldn't be getting married.
      so we're there for dinner and she brings this up again and I say thanks and we have it all under control. I am by not means cutting corners and i am not spending a ton of money on things that are not important to me.
      Anyway she leaves the room and comes back with this huge red folder thingy and gives it to me. Holy Flippin Crap!!!! I am looking at the cover and it has a lady in a mink coat on it. I am looking totally baffled, so is FI, she then says to me " I want to buy you a mink coat for a wedding gift from me. I am speechless "yup me, not a word can i find.
      So I open this folder and it is about custom made coats and they start at $6000. First i am not sure how I feel about a fur coat and second not something I would ever think about owning.
      So here I am stunned to no end, speechless and overwhelmed!!!! I finally got out of my mouth "I don't know what to say". I am very grateful that she cares that much about me and would think to buy something so expensive for me as a wedding gift. BUT I don't know how I feel about it.... Where the hell would I wear it and would I wear it?
      She asked me to call her this week she would like for me to have it or be fitted for it before she goes away the beginning of December.
      I am totally shocked!!!!! I feel like crap because I thought she invited us for dinner to complain about the wedding... What would you gals say? I am really not sure how I am feeling.
      Ok, I am late on this as you already made your decision, but how flattering!! I don't know what I'd do with a Mink coat, and I could think of a million things right now I could better use with that money but... Mink.... fabulous! LOL

      Hope everyone had a good weekend (the Bucs won, so it was good for us!)
      Lip stains are horrible!!! I tried one this weekend. I need to have that creamy chapstick feeling on my lips... so my solution will be just constant re-application. haha

      Exactly!! but you do live in the one city in NA where you could get away with wearing a Mink coat...


      Wow, you guys have been busy!!!! Very entertaining.

            regarding the make up thing.if you don,t wear make up on a regular basis then its alot of money.has your resort got a spa place on site or near by?if not go to a department store and tell them you want make up advise for your wedding and they will do you a make over for free.they may try and sell you something though.but if they explain to you what to do its worth it.

            what is the thing with the 24/7 wedding thoughts?we are all the same it is obviously the time thing.having my 2yr old nephew for the weekend will take my mind off it im sure. week

              Oh yeah!!! That'll side track you and make you wanna go get fixed in a hurry... lol... I am so not good with small kids. I think that's why I only had to the one. I had FI's cousin here for Easter, she has a 3 year old and "oh my dear god", I thought I was going to loose it. I had never in my life seen so much energy and damage in the wake of kid in my life. I had dishes broken, he smacked the dog and bit her. He tried to push a pen through my leather couch. Oh he threw the candle in the bathroom in the toilet. I could go on... Good luck... I found a large glass of Sherry took the edge of the whole event. lol

                I am a true insomniac these days. I stay on this forum and on various websites trying to make sure I am not forgetting anything and it is exhausting but fun at the same time. I don't know what I will do after the wedding is actually over . I will still stalk you ladies. Fair warning :)

                  Stalker are you!!!!!
                  I know I spend so much time on here it is so bad.....I am hoping I have everything under control and not forgetting anything. I am trying to tell myself don't sweat the small details. I was out yesterday trying to find makeup and a small purse in champagne colour. I came hope empty handed and grumpy.
                  I get to go see my dress again tomorrow. She is very close to finish!!!!!
                  I am really stuck on the music and stuff like that now, oh vows too.... Oh I hope i have all the big stuff done.

                      Yeah, My FI asked me what I would do with all my time after the wedding is over. I think he is lonely since I'm pretty much in love with this forum! Seriously, I think I might be addicted. But, it's a good thing because I wouldn't have attempted all my DIY projects (Foam Door Hangers, Rhinestone Tanks, Keycard/Tip Holders, etc.)

                      I had my dress and veil made here (China) but I'm not sure I like my veil. I showed the tailor pictures and she made it but was unsure on how to attach the hair comb. So, I have a bit of time to bring it to another tailor. Honestly, I really like the style but I'm not sure how to explain where it should be sewn onto the comb.

                      Are any of you having your veils made? Did you buy your veil? If so, can you post some pictures? I will take a picture of mine when I get home from work today.

                      Who is doing your hair? The resort? I have a friend that offered to do my hair but I'm second guessing my decision and might have the resort do it. The reason I'm nervous about her doing it is she is bringing her 8 month old daughter to Mexico and I'm worried if her daughter is having a bad day on my wedding day what if she can't do my hair exactly how I want it. Is this being too selfish? I mean it is my wedding day!?! I might just nicely tell her I'm having the resort do it. It's only $75 for a piece of mind.

                      What do you think?
