    I got lash extensions done at a nail salon for $30 and I had to work really hard to get them off after 3 weeks. I probably should have just kept them on. For the wedding, I will probably get them done again but just the short lashes, not medium and certainly not long.

     

    Finally, you can buy colored sand at Michaels. They have some in the with the floral supplies but if you want brighter colors, I suggest checking out the stuff for sand art in the kids craft area. I saw that they have started to make an area for sand in the wedding section but not at the store close to me yet.

     

    Good luck with your dress. I hope it looks great so you don't have to try to find another one.

     

    Happy Valentine's Day Ladies! I hope we all get lots of love for our last v-day before the weddings!

      Yep, exactly what I was going to say, Michael's has colored sand, and they have a good amount of colors to choose from too.

            I LOVE this idea.  I am so going to "borrow" this inspiration :)  Great job. So cute.

            Tris, houses are like men, the right one will come along and you'll instantly know. We weren't even really looking when we found ours. There was a few I loved online but just didn't feel like home when we checked them out.

             

            Here's a picture of my bikini bottoms that I customized. I'm thinking of doing another one with "BRIDE"

              Hi ladies!!! I still need to go back a few pages and catch up on weekend happenings!!

               

              Just wanted to share my OOT bag logo! I bought the iron on paper this weekend with a 50% off coupone at Michaels so now my mom has a job to do! ;)  (i'm not sure why the colour changed to a lighter shade when I uploaded to photobucket.. but the tree is more turquoise)  Can't wait to see how it's going to look on the bags!

              We wanted to not include anything 'wedding-wise' to encourage people to use them after Jamaica. Also hoping this is more gender-neutral. Because it sounds like another of FI's buddies might be coming now!  As of Saturday night, he has plans to call our TA today!!!

                      Tris- good luck with the house hunt! So exciting! And if you move the week before you leave just set up your bed and worry about the rest when you get home! It will be something to keep you busy! QueenDiva- love your bout and hair flower- so unique! Brandy- I think my list is way longer than yours of to do's. I'm trying to not write it out so I don't freak myself out!! Mocha- good idea with the jewels- I might look into that Laura - I like your oot bag logo, very simple and classy! And to eVeryone - happy valentines day!!
