        I have a ton left to do too. And I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

        ~Discuss/write ceremony with FI (& figure out if we're writing vows together or separate)
        ~Finish getting music together
        ~Find aloe & sudoku for OOT bags
        ~2nd dress fitting is 4/22 (at some point I have to fork over a whole lotta $ for that too)
        ~Finalize menu & send it & guest count to Dreams
        ~Practice dancing with FI
        ~Pashmina tags
        ~Finish place cards (of course I can't do this yet cuz I still have people bailing & it changes the tables around, ugh!)
        ~Send readings to FI's sisters & my brother
        ~Find spa wraps for BM's
        ~Make spa appts for hair (me & BM's)
        ~Pack a bag to give to FI's brother to bring down (need that done by next week)
        ~Still haven't received my BD pics from Jen & I need to make my book!
        ~Apply for our marriage license - need go to marriage bureau twice: once to sign/apply in person & then our legal day is 5/21
        ~Figure out when we're supposed to pay for our reception
        ~All of the various & sundry things to beautify myself (wax, tanning, mani's & pedi's - thanks for the reminder, Di!)
        ~WORK OUT!! (I did today, so that's a start)


        Shannon, maybe you guys could make wedding albums for your parents on shutterfly or blurb as gifts? They'll love them and you won't have to stress about finding something to give them down there.

        DianeP, I totally hear you! This whole school thing is putting a crimp in my wedding planning! What are you studying?

        JT do you have pics of your OOT bags?

            You're lists are so helpful!! Thanks Di, I totally forgot I still need to write my vows... avoiding this one big time. Me winging it up there would be a total disaster!

            Karen - I bought hand sanitizer at Target for $1 each... although this may be cheaper at a dollar store.

            Man these final details are really annyoing to me, less fun than other stuff!

              Wow, working & school on the weekends?! Sounds rough!

              Good to know, thanks. I need to probably go to Jersey to find a decent dollar store.


              It really is good to read everyone's lists! We'll keep each other on top of our crap. :)
