i can't believe how stressful this week has been!!! i can't wait till i can put it behind me..

 

warning vent (not wedding related, but i just really need to get it off my chest) -- aside from the notarizing stuff, this week was bonus week at work.  my dad, who is very high up in the company tells me on the weekend that the group he runs is expected to get a bonus around $3-4K and that I should expect the same thing.  Imagine my excitement!  Debt would be paid off leaving us even more extra $... I felt so good! .. until my boss sends me an email wednesday telling me that my bonuse is going to be $698...... when it's all said and done (got the pay stub) after taxes.. i get $520..... people who work in my building, who work for the same company as me have been flapping their mouths (well the one gossip queen that is)  - they got over $3k!!! ... so not fair. i feel defeated and wonder why i even work here!

Booo Lua that sucks that your bonus wasn't what you expected.....  I used to get amazing bonuses at my last job, but I moved to a new company last summer that doesn't give bonuses...  Right now is bonus time at my last job, and I was thinking the other day how great it would be to have that $$ right now!

 

Teira- love your bags!  And Brandy - love your hair flower!

 

Erin - I just PM'd you - hoping you can email me your packing list!

 

I got all my paperwork notarized las tnight, and sent it to the resort this morning!!  It's such a relief to get it done, cause it was suppose to be there 2 months in advance, which was almost 3 weeks ago!  The wedding coordinator told me it was fine to send it in this week, but I am a planner, and I hate being late so definitely a load off my mind to get it done!!!  And my dress is ready, so I'm picking it up on Saturday - yay!!!

Laura - That sucks! I know how you feel because we didn't get bonuses at my work for the last couple of years because our GM screwed up major and had a customer that owed us $7M. This year most of us got bonuses, thankfully. I saw one of the managers cheques, and he got $50K after taxes!

Laura, I'm sorry to hear that the bonus wasn't what you anticipated.  I always hate when anymore money related isn't what you expect it to be...  Taxes always hurt too.


Curious - Are bonuses a big thing up in Canada?  I got a bonus here where I work the last two years, but it's all a reflection of your performance.  I got mine last year right before Christmas, but I put it all towards the wedding!

 

Leah, I responded back to you, but I'll send you the list when I get home!

I'm not sure how bonuses work anywhere else, but for my company it's called 'profit sharing' ... if we have a good year, we get a bonus - always this time of year.  i have no idea how they split up the $ since i got so little and those who sit next to me and do the same level of work got 3x as much... we only get it when we have a good year though. i dont' remember getting one for the past 2 years now.

Laura, that makes sense.  That's so strange that you didn't get as much....I'm sorry.  

 

Queen, you are welcome!  If nothing else, it's my way to pay it forward for everyone else helping me!!

 

 

Okay, so I just bit the bullet and bought a hanger on etsy!

I have had the hardest time getting my OOT iron transfers going, first because the image was all messed up when i tried to change to PDF, then i figured out that problem, took the file and iron on paper to kinkos to print in the laser printer not thinking how hot laser printers are and it like started melting off in the printer and totaly screwed up the machine, then i decided just to print at home and finaly got them all printed and ready to iron on and realized i didnt flip the image before printing, so then had to go back through and figure out how to flip it but you can flip text boxes in word so i had to re-do them all... finally they are printed and in the process of being ironed on by my awesome mom! And i have to say they are fantastic! probably my favorite DIY so far! Heres a pic i took with my phone so its probably not the best but it gives the idea of them

    • 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.
