74 days until our wedding!

Recommended Posts

I've decided to start blogging for my last 74 days in hopes that it may help me get stuff done and also vent cause I'm going to start stressing and sweating the small stuff as the day gets closer!


the last few days have been really great! this family is pretty drama free, except when it comes to FSIL. She's pretty high maintenance and in her mind everything should go how she wants it. How do we all know these kinds of people? Anyways she has hated the idea of Akumal to begin with. She told us to let her know if there was anything she could do right away and I asked her if she'd be a BM. She said ya, but seems to forget the conversation and later made drama about how she never received a formal invite to be a BM. So, I made her a a special invite and of course she accepted, again! then I asked her if sh'ed kinda be an honorary MOH. My lil sis is my MOH and she's really shy doesn't like hosting (showers) and she's pregnant. My other BM's are all FSILs, but one lives 3 hours away, and the other is in the marines. And Staci (drama girl) is very creative so she said she would handle my shower and any projects I needed.


Well she isn't even sure if she's coming, cause they can't afford it. her husband, Joes older bro, is for sure coming but she had to buy 2 new carseats (total $600) and now can't afford to come. then how the hell are you supposed to be a BM?! Well we've been struggling w/ BM dresses so this weekend i flat out told her "we're 2 months out I don't even know if you're coming. You tell me you can't afford to come, but then you make comments about how you wish we were having it sooner cause you need a vacay. I'm trying to get all BM and GM stuff together and don't know if you're coming, not coming, if you want to be a BM or not please give me some kind of answer or idea w/ whats up." She replied "you can count me out. Sean hasn't told me if we can afford for me to go" Well, I was kind of happy. She's really all drama, no one is better than her and I feared she might take away from my day, especially while I'm trying to get ready w/ my girls. But, I was kinda upset cause she BOLD FACED LIED to me. Sean has no idea how much money they have, she doesn't let him spend any, and we all know this so I don't know why she said that.


Well the next day I went to tj maxx looking for a new garlic press (no luck) but I found 2 maxi dresses i LOVE for our BMs! One is half thai and doesn't really look well in pink or blue, our colors, so she was wanting green which is our accent color. I was struggling w/ finding multiple green dresses I really liked and I wanted all of them to be a little different if in the same color. My sis will be in pink, but these dresses are the same but one is our blue and the other is our green accent and they were $20 each. SOLD!


I have a huge list of things I need to do. I will post it later and my progress in the next 74 days!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
