    Congratulations Shannon! Welcome back married lady! So glad to hear everything went well and that you were such a chill bride! I'm hoping that will be me too :) Can't wait to see pics! Your siggy is adorable!

    Girls, this weekend was a total blur. Fri night I had a little bachelorette party with like 6 friends - just dinner & then drinks at 230 Fifth with its awesome rooftop garden overlooking the Empire State Bldg. Lots of fun, but I didn't get crazy either. Then Sat AM had brunch for a friend's bday and immediately after we met friends down in the lower East side & drank away the day at a beer garden. Left the house at 10:45 that morning and got home at like 11:30 Sat night. Then Sun we went outlet shopping all day to get FI clothes for the vacay. He seriously had no clothes! Now I'm exhausted.

    Got a hair cut today (very happy with it) and am going for teeth whitening tomorrow. yay!

    Oh, & I forgot to post last week - I went for a hair trial and it was HORRIBLE! Total waste of time & money. I'll upload some pics but they're awful. The girl had to re-do it twice. I had lots of pics to show her what I wanted and she just couldn't do it. ugh! So, I'm just gonna show up the day of the wedding & hope for the best. Whatever. It CAN'T be any worse than the trial.

      Glad you survived the weekend, karen! I had my bachelorette party Sat and I survived! Hehe.

      Oh no, so sorry that you had an awful hair trial. Usually resort stylists are good so you will be okay!!

        Thanks ladies...it definitely feels good to be back...but I miss the relaxation down there.

        Karen and Diana - glad you survived your bachelorette parties, this is crunch time now =)

        Karen - Sorry about your hair, but I agree with Diana, the resorts do a great job. I saw another bride two days before our wedding and her hair came out very nice. Just bring pictures of all angles if you can.

        Working on my review with pics....but nothing professional...those are 4-6 weeks.

            First off, let me start by saying the wedding was wonderful. We had a few hiccups but in the overall scheme of things it TRULY didn’t matter. Everyone had a blast, all 70 of us. The flowers were pretty, the food was good and the drinks were flowing. No body left the dance floor and it just flew by in a flash. Makes me happy that we were able tos pend the few days before and after with everyone, because that day was so quick. Before we knew it, it was was 10:30 and we hadn’t even cut the cake =) HeHe

            Ladies – no need to worry about a thing. Even if when you get down there and something goes wrong…it’s not worth it to be upset. I was the most relaxed and chill bride, my friends kept saying “are you okay” and my response was, “Of course, I am in Mexico, marrying the man of my dreams, with 70 of our cloest friends and family, what’s to worry about?” And that truly was my moto. Relax, enjoy and take it all in.
            Sad to be back, I would love to have stayed longer than 2 weeks =( I will be posted a full review thread within a few days, once I get myself together again and stop staring at my new ring ;-)
            Congratulations!!! I've heard that the wedding flies by really quick so I will be using the same philosophy - don't stress about anything and just enjoy it!

              I still have a couple of small things to do before starting to pack. The time crunch is starting to get to me a little bit but we've got all the important stuff covered. Other than that, I guess I better buckle my seat belt!!!

                Great review Shannon! Can't wait to see more pics!

                Yeah, we're plugging away at our to-do list. Almost done with writing the ceremony and started on vows tonight. I have pretty much everything ready for the OOT bags, just waiting on the aloe & sudoku books to arrive but they should be here in the next day or 2. This weekend we're gonna finish up the music and start packing stuff.

                Wow! Diane & Linds are up this weekend! Yay for them!
