I thought of doing a criss cross layer of blue as well .. i'll just have to play around with it. FI says it looks like a blue candy cane right now lol!!! and yes, the orchids came with the blue rhinestones on them. I'm hoping they'll add that extra little sparkle when out in the sun near the water. I'm hoping for a sunny day this weekend so I can get some better pictures that really show the true colours.

Oh so I ended up buying some luggage tag loops last night! I found some turquoise ones (sweet!) but... had to buy a box of 100!
Any one here interested in turquoise luggage tag loops??? Once I finish up my tags, the remainder (approx 72) will be up for sale!

Laura - I LOVE your bouquets! Very nice job on them!!!! You are making me wonder if I should add some more flowers to the ones I'm going to make (for the MOH and BMs in the wedding). I only have orange gerbera daisies (six for each bouquet)...Hmm...
So, I wanted to share with you ladies... FI absolutely shocked me last night. We were on our way home (we bowl in a league on Tuesday nights...it's like our "date night"), and he says to me, "You know, our numbers are lopsided right now.... with you brother not going to Mexico. Do you think I should ask Steve to be in the wedding?" Now, Steve is a good friend, because he is my MOH's husband. We hang out with them more than anyone else really... My only worry is, what if he does, and Steve feels like he's just "filling in"? I told him I was fine with it, but he needed to figure out if that's what he wanted to do. He didn't say anything else, so this morning when he emailed me about something else, I brought it up and asked what he was thinking and if he was going to ask Steve!
I guess even though I don't care that we'd be lopsided, FI does!

Erin, thats so funny you say that! My FI said the same thing, who would of thought they would be worried about something like that LOL!

Erin - thanks!!! as for # of flowers, this is my bouquet but to give you an idea, I included i think 7 of the gerberas (orignally planned for 5, so i'm glad I bought a dozen!), 3 of the amaryllis (each with 3 blooms and 1 bud) and 5 of the orchids (i actually have 1 leftover!)
hehe that's funny how both your FI's thought that!

for portion control, you can also use smaller plates.. That helps sometimes.

I work at a college, so I have access to the gym on campus which helps - no more excuses! I try to run on the treadmill for 30-40 min 4 times a week at lunch, and then when I get home I walk my dog (anywhere from 2-5km depending on both our energy levels). I'm also aiming to do Jillian Michael's 30 day shred 3 times a week, but on those days I make FI walk the dog!

Shoot I would have loved to have turquoise ones but already bought and put mine together. Great score!

Tenny, what style of dress, short, long, any budget price, and any particular color of coral, there are so many shades of coral.
