I'll be changing to a more common name, but will still honor my maiden name. I do wish that it would make a more interesting middle name for our future children. Some of FI's family is pretty upset because he never took his dad's last name and now I'll be taking his mom's name too.


    The career thing has A LOT to do with it. I've got some thinking to do. :)

      Meggers, I'm not sure where you should order from. I am supposed to receive my replacement book next week, so if you can wait, I'll let you know when it arrives.

        Hmmm sadly I can't wait. I need to place my order tomorrow. I think I'll suck it up and go with Blurb. A girlfriend of mine uses them all the time and loves them. Plus they offer tracking to Canada so at least I won't loose my mind worrying. Landscape will have to do!  The link to my edited bd pics will be available at 5 tonight so I'll post some more shots when I get them!

          My wrist corsages for the mothers and bouts for the fathers and my son.

          Now my daughter wants me to make her and her BF's for Prom.  I think I can do that!

            Meggers, I think you will be safe as long as they provide tracking.

             

            Theresa, they look beautiful. Where did you purchase your flowers from? I made some but FMIL bought a mauve dress so that will look horrible with orange callas.

              Thank you!  I bought them from Michaels.  It was very easy to do.  Tried to keep them pretty neutral but put a little splash of the orange in them.  I think they will look great since they are on their wrists and not pinned on their dresses which may not match completely.  I used nice ivory hydrangas and I think the other is called alstromeria which looks tropical.  We are actually buying real alstromeria for my AHR cake as they are much cheaper than orchids.  Here's a pic of my daughters bouquet - her dress is an orange.  My son will be in a turquoise shirt so I made his bout a little different than the dad's.

               What are your wedding colors?

                  See, professionally it will not be a big deal for me.  It will actually be a great situation because there is a girl in a completely different city/state that gets my emails a lot because people forget to put my middle initial in the email address!!!

                   

                  Theresa, they look great!  I absolutely love them!


                  Married the love of my life in April!!

                    Theresa, your flowers look beautiful. On the name change thing, I can't wait to change my last name, it's not that i dont like my current last name but i just cant wait to be Mrs Clifford, also when we have kids i really feel that i want to have the same last name as my kids! That is just what works for me and everyone is different so i think you have to change your last name only if it is what you really want! I already have all the paper work to do it!!

                      On the name change, I was having a hard time a year ago dealing with the thought of changing my last name to where it would be different than my children's.  I could tell it really hurt my FI so as not to disrespect him, I'm going with his last name.  When we joined Title Boxing Club last month, we just put his last name as mine so I won't have to mess with it later on.  I'm ok with changing it now but it took a lot of thinking to get there.  Since I work in IT, I won't have a problem hyphenating my last name there for a few months until people get used to the change and then I'll drop my current last name.
