    I'm friend Donna gave out our tops for the mexico hen yesterday they are so cute. But they are white and pink and VERY similar to what i did for us to travel in. I thought she was doing black ones, but never mind they look great and we'll have fun in them. So nice of her to do it. MIL still hasn't thank'd me or Donna for her top.... WITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! enough said amen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Donna's found a Zumba class on a saturday morning so we are gonna go and try it out. Really looking forward to it. For the girls that go, what do you wear and is it hard? lol

    Haha, i was saying to Stephen a few weeks ago, id be wanting to do my cleaning and shopping in my dress!!!! LOL, i can see it now!!! haha :-)


    Good that you have tops for your hen & you friend did them, what a nice thing to do, my friend sarah is planning something with everyone behind my back... im scared...haha..... i havent got a clue whats going on, fancy dress.... or what..... watch this space x

                Hi Michelle, yes wear trainers as its alot of bouncing around so feet need to be comfy, and dont wear thick joggers as you get very hot!!! Let us know how you get on!


                Good luck with the dress fitting today


                Last week I had such a crap week,  had a fall out with my sons BF mum who are coming to mexico with us. My sons BF has been constantley putting him down lately (he is one of these boys who has to be the best at everything and doesnt like being beaten) and thursday they had Cross Country race which they were both in. My son was already feeling down due to BF constant little digs aboout test results from school, then on the final lap of their race my son went to overtake him and he shoved him on the bend (I let this go)

                then it got to running down the tunnel to the finishing line and my son was in front and his BF grabbed his top and pulled him back. My son just burst into tears and got him self into a right state stuggling to breath (his asthmatic), I raced over to sort my son out and said to his mate that he was out of order. He then went to his mum and told her i told him to get lost, she went made saying he fell it was an accident. Like hell it was everyone saw except her that he grabbed him and pulled him back (even the teachers said he grabbed him). So now my sons not talking to BF as later it didnt stop there BF kept messaging him on facebook telling him everyone hated him, nasty boy! Now i dont know what to do as im not backing down on this one i dont like bullies!

                Thats my rant over!


                Question for those having AHR, are you having chair covers & bows on your chairs or just leaving them plain. I would like them as it makes it more wedding like but OH says its a waste of money. Arrrhhh men sorry another rant!


                I went to a wedding fayre with mum at the weekend and we found out about a place called 'The Wedding Village' near me. They have Bridal Nights where you and your bridesmaids can go (1st thursday of every month) and have free hair and makeup trials, so i have booked us in for 3rd March. Why pay when we can get it done free.

                On August 2nd at 3pm at Sensatori Resort, Riviera Maya, Mexico I marry my best friend.

                      Good morning girlies!


                      How was your weekend?  OOOOOh Michelle you will be trying on your dress this very second!  Im so excited for you!  Also - I just wanted to chip in about getting asked WHY mexico?  And about family being mad as we have had exactly the same problems with Chris' family.  All my friends and fmaily from NZ have been fine and very excited about going on holiday, keeping it small and intimate, and getting married abroad.


                      Chris family on the other hand, have been horrendous - threatening not to come, throwing temper tantrums and basically just generally giving me so much grief that I rang Gretna Green registry office one day to see how quickly we could get married!  I just wanted it over and done with!  They have all calme ddown a bit now and are all looking forward to the holidayy but trying to explain that if we were doing things "traditionally" they would all be going to New Zealand was really hard!  They just cant seem to understand why I wouldnt want to get married here?  Is it just me or is it really not that difficult?  I tried to compromise by going half way ..... ish.


                      Anyways, Im just so excited - I was heading down the A3 on the bus on Friday night after work DREAMING of salty frozen Margaritas.


                      I didnt realise a few of you hadnt been to Mexico before?  This will be my 3rd trip so i am MORE then happy to help with any questions you might have re the airport, area, sightseeing (I've done most things down there), food, booze, resorts etc.  I havent been to MP before where we are getting married but I have a rough idea what most of the resorts are like :)  Ask away!



                      Have any of you booked your music for the evening?  I am in th process of negotiating with a DJ at present but Chris and I are so so so fussy about music we want to do our own.  All we need is the speakers/ipod plug/microphone and some lights.  Is it rude to ask what you guys have been quoted for this?  I want to get a round about idea of what to tell him my budget is as they have quoted us $980 for it which seems steep seeing as there is no actual DJ!


                      How exciting about your AHR Nicy!  What a fab thing to come home too! 



                      Good luck with the dresses girls!
