Lisa - I just feel bad for my parents. I told them I couldn't understand why she is so rude to others when that wasn't the way she was raised. But I think it might be for the best that she learns that not everyone will let her make all the decisions, and that her money can't buy everyone.

Wow, 48 new messages...  I missed a lot last night/today....

 

Lets see if I can remember who just said what!  =)

 

Brandy - I'm going to need about 23 bags at this point....

 

Laura - I'm sending good vibes!  I hope things work out for your FI, that would be a great thing especially to change that commute!

 

Tris - Your invites are amazing!  I absolutely love them!!!

 

Today I got absolutely NOTHING accomplished.  I did find some bags that I could use for the meds that I'm going to put in the OOT bags, but they aren't exactly what I'm looking for, so I didn't buy them...yet.  I did find some luggage tags that I think I'll buy special for the girls in the wedding, but they were at Michael's and I didn't have the weekly coupon, so I decided to wait. 

 

After a terrible dentist appointment/migraine and getting sick before leaving, I decided to take a nap this afternoon...  So, I'm going to try to get a few things done tonight!

Okay, I need some opinions...  I'm trying to figure out what I want to do for my luggage tags.  I just found the flip flop luggage tags on a site for a heck of a lot less than what I found them for at Michael's today.  I want to know what you guys would do... 

I can buy these tags:

for $1.89/ea. or get the clear tags where I'd have to buy the loops and make the luggage tag insert....  I have found the clear ones for $.85.

 

I really like the flip flop ones, but my only hesitation is...will the guys REALLY want flip flop luggage tags??  Thoughts?

I think the flip flop ones are cute, but from my experience with travelling, is that larger/bulkier luggage tags always seem to get broken and those look fairly 3-dimensional. If you get the smaller clear ones, you could always put a picture of flip flops in it, which I think the guys might like better also.

So, last night I got some really bad news, and I don't mean to be a downer, but I just need to let it out, and you girls are all so supportive. Anyways, so we've had our trip booked since last March, and several people paid their deposits right away and wanted to come. One of those people included my half-sister, who I'm not terribly close with, but we were so excited she was coming and she was so excited to come. Anyways, last September she found out she has breast cancer and she's only 40. She's had 2 major surgeries last fall to remove the tumours, originally the doctors were very optimistic and thought that's all she would need, so we were all trying to keep positive and remain hopeful that she could still come to the wedding. But now, she just found out she has to start chemo in a couple of weeks and won't be able to travel for at least 6 months. She's really upset that she's missing the trip and I feel horrible about what she's going through. I honestly feel stuck now. I don't know what to do. I feel bad moving forward with wedding stuff, for example, I have been sending out e-mails to everyone coming to Jamaica having a countdown to get everyone excited and now I feel like that's almost inappropriate because she was always the first to write back and tell me how excited she was. How do I continue to move forward without making things harder for her? This is such a crappy situation. I wish I could postpone the wedding and have it when she's got the OK to come, but it's too late for that now....bah, anyways, thanks for listening.

Char,

 

I'm so sorry to hear about your half sister...but I don't think she would want you to be less excited about your wedding because of her illness....she sounds like she is supper happy and excited for you and your big day and I don't think she would want to take that from you.  Does your resort offer the opportunity for her to watch the wedding online?  Maybe that would be an option to look into..

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
