    Mocha - your FI sounds amazing, taking care of you when you're "Sick" ... he is going to LOVE your BD pics! Im doing mine next saturday and im so nervoux/exciting/anxious!

    Bailey - totally do the iron-on thing. Otherwise it will be way over priced. I got my "BRIDE" iron-on from Michaels for $1.


    I don't think I will do too much wedding stuff this weekend, maybe just browse for OOT items. Unless there's a good Michaels sale, then I might work on ceremony programs and place cards. Oh, and start ordering the photo book for FI.

     Apola~ Welcome to the group! This is such an amazing group of girls on here! We're happy to have you :)


    Weekend to do list (my weekend started today)

    * went to try on suits for FI this morning, he decided on all black so i'll be ordering it from StudioSuits.com since its so much cheaper

    * Working out like crazy to get ready for BD shoot next saturday

    * figure out outfits for BD shoot

    * figure out how the heck im going to come up with all the money i still need to come up with before the wedding! I thought a DW was going to be less expensive than an at home wedding but it sure has added so quickly and the wedding date is coming full speed!

    * printing luggage tags, menus, iron-on transfers for OOT bags, maraca tags

    * making my "Just Married" swim suit

    * deciding my TTD out of the 4 that i have purchased! pretty soon i'll have anough wedding dresses to open a bridal shop at my house....

          Just started with her last thursday. She is really a dietician/trainer which is great because it is covered under FI's medical plan. Last week we took measurements, weight (yikes) and made a meal plan for me and this thurday will be my first workout session with her and every other thursday after that for 6 weeks and then if I find it is working then I will pay for more. I only worked out once this week so far so I need to step that up to 4times a week at least.

              Thats so great Lisa!! Mine is just strictly a trainer, I see him 3 times a week for an hour and I do at least an hour of cardio every day!  You can do it, I went from doing nothing to doing that! Im quite proud of myself!!!

              What is your goal?

                I haven't been on here in a while.  There's sure been a lot of activity going on! 


                Here is what I have accomplished in the past 1 1/2 weeks or still need to finish.

                • I made my invitations for our AHR on Sunday and Monday and got them all mailed out yesterday.
                • I purchased the glass bowls for my table centerpieces.  Got a steal on them at Deals which was 1/2 of what I paid for the others at Hobby Lobby and Michaels at 1/2 price. 
                • Ordered sundresses and another potential wedding dress (not sure what I'm thinking) so those should be in this week. 
                • Received my ivory metallic Old Navy flip flops for my daughter and I.  Now I just have to start working on the ribbon and crystals to dress them up. 
                • My friend is designing my wedding jewelry right now.  She's an artist and I'm so excited about this.  I purchased a ton of beads at a bead show last summer in Chicago just for the wedding.
                • I reserved a block of rooms for our AHR
                • I need to finish my starfish wine stopper favor gift tags and bookmarks this week.  Have them all ready to print. 
                • Things are coming along! 

                Have a fun and wonderful weekend.

                  Lisa - will definitely post pics when i get back this weekend! (that reminds me i should charge my camera tonight)  that's exciting about you starting with a trainer! (brandy too!) :) i'm sure you girls are going to do awesome!


                  I actually made a crazy decision fitness-wise yesterday...... lol  i'm going to keep going as is for the next 3 weeks and then i will be starting a 12 week-long training program to run a HALF MARATHON!!!! :o!!  My goal race is May 22, so i'm going to start my 12-week training plan a week early as I don't see myself running 19 miles during my week in Jamaica!! haha so i'm going to take a week off for the trip and maybe only do one or two runs when i'm south. it's pretty crazy, but i'm excited!!  My training officially starts Feb 22 and from then on i'll be running 4X a week!

                    Brandy - I got the handcriefs at New Tradition (http://www.newtradit...om/default.aspx)

                    I found other cheaper places, but this one was the cheapest one that I could personalize the way I wanted. I'm Brazilian so for my side of family I had to imprint poems in my native language (Portuguese) or nobody would understand anything. LOL.


                    Lua - I'm quite chatty as well. I was following you guys hidden, but couldn't resit. LOL

                    I got the flipflops in a Brazilian personalized website because is half price. Here in the states I only found 1 place that does it. It's pricey though. (http://acreativestep.com/default.aspx). Maybe someone can do a search and post here for a better price.

                      Wow Brandy that is dedication. To do an hour everyday. You are my hero!!!!

                      K that's it, if you guys can all do this I need to stop making excuses like im too busy on the computer and phone planning stuff and get my ass on that treadmill or do a video every day. Even if it is 30minutes a day it's better than nothing or only 4 times a week.

                      Hutchets-that's some pretty big accomplishments this passed week, congrats!
