Happy Sunday!

 

Well today as ndivdul, I too have a successful Michaels trip with FI.  Yes I said with FI.... haha ;-)  We went to Cracker Barrel and you know there is a Michaels less than 2 minutes from there.  His words "as long as you have me home by 1:15p" Football yall....  at first he wasn't going to go in but after he saw the Christmas Items I brought yesterday from the Michaels a few minutes away from our house, he decided to come in (probably for cost control ;-() but nevertheless he helped and was like "wow I see why you spend so much time in here, this store is gigantic and you probably get lost in here."  Then when the lady spoke to me by name he said "well it's not that you get lost in here" LOL  anyway, he helped pick a few more items for Christmas (we were looking for something small for the outside of our house) & a few things for the wedding.  And guess what ladies, he picked up something that was $20 and said I know you have a coupon right.. I smiled and said yes babe and he kissed me on my forehead....and said "that's my baby, now can we go."  smile120.gif  got love him.  Well I'm off to finish our Christmas decorations (we are keeping it light this year.) Then off to finish a few things for the wedding.  I will probably get a chance to post the Christmas Boarding Passes that I'm doing for my work mom on Friday evening. I don't go back to work until Wed so my printer love has a nice break.  But alas when I return I have  to print our PreTravel Brochures (I decided to do this versus the boarding passes to change things up a little), our wedding programs (the deadlines for the 2 BM's is Dec 1st to decide if they are or aren't going), the Christmas Boarding passes, escort cards and guestbook cards. 

 

TTYL ladies and I can't wait to see what everyone has been doing.

It's a pdf file. However; I changed the wording and will totally upload pictures once all done.  This should be Friday evening or Saturday evening after I pick up my dress...

So how did guests do about this?  I feel like its a lot to ask and I had already posted on our website back when we sent out STDs that it was only a 2 night deposit and I had originally had 5 rooms booked and Geraldine never told me it was going to be any different nor did she send me a new contract!

I emailed Geraldine several times about guests needing to pay in full instead of a deposit, and she wouldn't budge for me. I had the same fear as you. I hope your efforts prove more fruitful than mine! Happy to answer any more questions if you have them!

Yay for successful Michael's trips!! Now your FI understands a bit more your love for M's! Wish mine did. ;) Cute about the Christmas boarding passes - what's your work mom going to use them for exactly? I think it's so cool that all the DIY wedding projects I've been working on have taught me how to do new crafts and have given me an excuse to buy more tools which I can apply to other crafting besides for the wedding! I've even played around with the idea of opening up my own etsy store like our other bride on here! Can't wait to see more of your projects! I find them so inspiring.

Happy Sunday!

I did two for her at her request.  She is buying her 2 daughters their airline tickets to Cancun as their Christmas present. So while they are boarding passes, I pulled in their love for Hello Kitty, Bling & Shoes... so while each are centered around Hello Kitty they different in their pictures etc.. the undertone is our wedding with highlights of their mom & dad giving this gift to them.  So the "same" boarding passes but with a different spin. 

 

I posted the pdf file a while back but most weren't able to open.  I will post pictures soon....this week will be pretty busy with me being out of the office since Wednesday last week and I don't return until Wed this week ;-)  Helping one of my BMs move tomorrow & Tuesday.  I will try to go in the office early Tuesday morning to at least print  so that I can do some DIY stuff if I'm not too tired Tuesday evening. Friday nite I will be out with some of my nursing staff as my Lead Clinician and right hand woman is leaving to go back to school sad.gif  Saturday I morning I have a class at church and then off to pick up my Grandma & mom to go try on my dress and/or pick it up if it fits to a T ;-)  When I'm tired already LOL

I hope your Thanksgiving holidays were well. I am asking that you pray for my family at this time. My FMIL passed away yesterday morning and my FI is an only child, so this is extremely difficult; especially when we are 5 months away from our wedding. He is handling this as best he can, but I ask that you pray (if you pray) for his strength at this time. Thanks in advance.

Hello brides,ni hope everyone had a goodThanksgiving!  I was wondering if anyone has been able to find luggage tags at Michaels?  Not the plastic ones, but the regular tags.  I think they came in silver & maybe a few other colors.  I can't find them anywhere!!

I haven't ran across them in the Michaels that I shop in. I'll be venturing to two new Michaels stores over the next week or so, so I'll keep a look out! How many do you need?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
