    Wow, I missed so much yesterday afternoon/evening!  I feel so left out!

     

    Brandy, I love the gifts!  They came out great!!

     

    Lisa, I like the centerpiece with the green stones, it bring the other color in and makes it pop a little more!

     

    Anyway, I'm having a "down" day I feel...  I'm so frustrated with work from yesterday & today, and it's totally got me in a funk....

     

    On top of that, I have been bugging FI for a week now to call the woman who we can book our AHR location through, and he's going to do it... TOMORROW...  Oh wait, he just called...and better yet... we can't have our location, because it's already booked (by a company who books it every year).  Apparently FI could tell in my voice when I called him this morning that I was less than impressed with his "I'll do it tomorrow piece." 

     

    What I was also going to say is that our photographer has asked us to move our date so she can do a wedding that date.  I'm totally put off right now by the fact that she would ask me that!!  UGH!

     

    However, now what I have to say is, our location is not available, and our photographer doesn't want to do it that day anyway!

     

    Is it Friday yet??

      Erin - that's not so great. But I guess it works out that you need to find a new date for both reasons. Is your photographer just doing it as a favor? That's strange that she would try to reschedule for another wedding.

       

      My FI is the same way with it's on my list excuses. He is complaining to me about not having his taxes done when I told him last March that he needed to change his address with the gov't and get tuition receipts before I could complete his taxes. I am still waiting for both. And now the people at work are telling him that he will have to pay a penalty so he is all worried. Of course, he doesn't believe me when I tell him there's no penalty if they owe you, it's only if you owe extra taxes. Plus, it's my fault he doesn't know where his income receipts are. I told him to find everything and get it all together. And not the night before I get home!

        Oh no, no favor at all.  We are paying for her trip to Mexico, and also paying her $1,000 for the package we are getting.  I guess, I just couldn't imagine someone change something like that so it fits into my schedule when we've signed a contract already...

          Thanks for the support ladies.

           

          Tenny I think wearing her ring is a lovely idea. I'm going to have two photo charms done up for my bouquet, one of my grandparents and one of his parents. Also I ordered all of my jewelery and my bm's jewlery including my hair piece from a seller on Etsy that donates money from every sale to the cancer society. Since we lost FI's mom to cancer I thought is was a nice, subtle way to honour her. It's tough to find a balance between including them, but not turning the occasion somber. Oh and FI's mom loved carnations so he is going to wear a carnation and button mum boutenniere.

           

          I think you have it perfectly Tenny -  honour them in ways that you can feel but everyone else may not realize. We just need little reminders that they are there always here with us.

            Meggers I am so sorry to hear about your FI's loss and about his aunt. That is so sad. I am doing a memory poem with a frame of mixes pictures with 8departed that we want to honor.

             

            Here is the poem.napkin fold, menu, memory frame, postcard instructions 006.JPG

              Oh Lisa that poem is wonderful!! What a beautiful tribute. We put an "In Loving Memory" page on our website with photos of each of the 6 people we'll be missing that day. It has a quote from Xavier Rudd's song "Green Spandex" have you ever heard it? It's lovely (despite the strange name)

                Erin, if you have an actual contract with her that is horrible. Especially since she is also getting a vacation.

                  Meggers, I apologize I just read your post about FIs family.  That is so sad... I couldn't imagine dealing with all of that.  I think honoring all of his family members would be wonderful.  I am thinking we will honor my grandmother (who was like a second mother) and FIs sister.  I think it's a great touch.

                    I ordered swirl pops too. I actually found them in my wedding colors, orange & turquoise from Beau Coup.

                    I received some of my gifts today!! Im really happy with everything except for the beach bag I got my FSIL, there is no way this thing qualifies as a beach bag, its HUGE, Im talking the size of a suitcase seriously!!! Im hoping they will let me exchange it!

                     

                    Heres the Lounge Cover Towels- the quality of these are great! They are nice thick fluffy towels, I only worry about how much room they will take up in the suitcase! And the embroidering is awesome!

                    I think that will be so special for you to wear her jewelry 

                    Also, someone asked me where I got my candy from for the candy buffet, but I couldn't find the post.  I actually got most of it from Oh Nuts! and then my swirly pops from Beau Coup.
