April 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

It helps for sure and this is somthing I negotiated when I started and I am glad I did cause almost 4 years with no raise is crazy. My first year here I gave my staff raises but didn't get one from my boss! He is no longer here and I love my new VP so things are looking up!


I leave April 23rd Brandy! 7weeks yikes!!!! So much still to do.

Wow!  I feel bad for you snow storm girls!  I am not a snow person and we have actually had some this year (abnormal winter!)  Hopefully those days are over as we know have sunny skies and mid 70's. Woo Hoo!

So I just posted this on the May thread but wanted to share with you girls as well because I was so excited, and my FI actually got excited when he saw everything and started coming up with new ideas...I was somewhat in shock LOL


Sooo obssessed with VistaPrint.  Everything for my first order turned out great.  I think I spent aroudn $36 and got freebies and free shipping.  They "said" 21 days but my order came in less than 2 weeks!  I LOVE it and can't wait to place another order!  I get free postcards next so suggestions on what to make with them since you get so many.  Not shown below, but I also ordered the free rubber self inking stamp with our names and our address on it.


Used the rack cards to make my door hangers.  So happy with how they turned out!

Oversized postcards which I used as for the Welcome letters.  Turned out awesome, look professional, and I LOVE them!


I got "save the date" cards with envelopes for free so I made stationary with my new name on them for some little thank you notes I can write.  I got the pen for free and a steal of a deal on the business cards which I am come to use as thank you tags on OOT bags, luggage tags, key/tip holder cards, and maybe some other things!


FREE Car Magnet (P.S. My FI's name is Winston, but I call him Winnie so we are "Winnie & Tiffy")

I know there is a separate thread on here about this, but all this bonus talk has me curious about what kind of work everyone does. Plus, I totally need to find a new job that doesn't involve me being away from FI so much.


Lisa, the 407 and gas being paid is huge. When FI was working in T.O. his 407 bill was usually at least $500 a month. I just noticed a few minutes ago that gas here is $1.20 a litre, close to $5 a gallon for the U.S. ladies.

Stop rubbing in the nice weather, that's not allowed!!


Very nice job with your vistaprint order!  I could just keep ordering from there, but I have pulled myself away.  Instead, I'm ordering from etsy...which is worse because I'm paying more money!!

    • 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.
