        So in the last couple of days I really can't check this from work, system doesn't allow me anymore. oh oh they are on to me lol

        Sherri I left my usb stick at work last night so I couldn't send you what I did but will tonight.

        YAY Laura that cover up is so gorgeous!

        Meggers- I am happy with the teeth whitening I think I just expected way to much. They are whiter for sure! It didn't hurt or anything and I have no sensitivity at all. So I guess it all depends if you want to spend the money on it but if you are on a budget then I would go with what Brandy suggested and trip the aquafresh strips.

        Ok ladies, I will talk to you tonight! Have a great weekend everyone.

        Oh I am picking up my hair extensions tomorrow so I can't wait to see what they will look like in. Also my seamstress is supposed to work on my TTD this saturday but who knows that was supposed to happen a month ago!

          Lisa - that's horrible they won't let you on this site anymore. Don't they know that your wedding should be a priority!?! I'll be waiting to see your results.

              Brandy - I don't even want to look at my "entire" to-do list. It would be way too overwhelming. But maybe when I'm only a few weeks out it will be better.  Are you still posting your planning thread this week? I am so eager to see all your stuff!

                  Yay for weekend lists:

                  - Attempt to finish up all my design work for the wedding - welcome magazine, playing cards, programs, etc. (wish me luck)

                  - Work with FI on the music (he's a DJ so he's doing awesome on his own, but I need to check up on him, hehe)

                  - Get gifts for my hostesses for the shower (in 2 weeks)

                  - GO SHOPPING FOR BEACHY CLOTHES!! Yay :)


                  On another note, the price of our vaca went down substantially (like by more than $500) so I think we may have some last minute bookers. Awesome :)


                  I also have all my flowers decided on. We were originally going to go with the free bouquet that came with the package, but I really didn't like it, nor did it suit my colors. So instead we're doing full on white hydrangea's. They're so pretty and inexpensive. I really wanted peonies, but they're so pricey. So all the flowers are around $350 (my bouquet, bouts for groom, 2 GM, 2 dads, 1 gramps, 2 BM bouquets, 4 corsages for moms & grandmas). I think that's pretty good hey? I was asking around work "What are flowers supposed to cost?" - I literally had no idea, and everyone here told me that was a really good deal.

                    Laura that's awesome that you snagged that! They didn't have it at the outlet I was at. They had another cute one, but it was $40. I can't justify that for a cover up!


                    Do any of you find that you are suffering from "bride brain"? My boss actually has caught on to it and now uses it everytime someone in our office does something ditzy!!


                    I feel like there is so much going on in my head at any given time that things are started to fall off my plate! I'm a project manager at work so handling a million details at a time is what I do, but with all the wedding details plus all my work details I think I may lose my mind! lol!


                    Last night I left the lights on in my car over night. In my garage. Nose first. It was a real nice suprise to wake up to this morning considering we didn't own jumper cables!!! Oy.

                      Tris that is awesome on the flowers! I love hydrangeas!! But in Mex they can be hard to track down.


                      My BD shoot is on Tuesday (I can't believe it came so fast!!) so a lot of my weekend will involve prep for that.
