The 3 milks at our resort is delicious!!!! That's what we chose. It can be very sweet so if you have a filling option I would suggest balancing it with something not as sweet.

I think you can never go wrong with vanilla but I would clarify about the dulce de leche. 3 leches and dulce de leche are not the same. 3 leches is like a moist, sweet, tasty cake. It tastes like a vanilla cake infused with condensed milk, just delicious. Dulce de leche is also very yummy and it tastes a lot like caramel, but better in my opinion, so you'll love it! :D 

 

Whichever of those two it is (dulce de leche or 3 milks) i think your cake will be a hit ;)

@MrsCtoB @TinkerSofi

 

Thanks!  Those are great descriptions, and sound really good.  I'm guessing its the 3 leches, versus dulce de leche.  I'm all about sweet, so it could be a good option!

 

 

 

HORRIBLE UPDATE:

So before my workout last night, I was playing with the dog and throwing the toy.  I tripped and caught myself in a standing position, but heard a "pop" in my foot.  Turns out I have a fracture in my 5th metatarsal (little toe) and am in a walking shoe for probably 6 weeks.  GUESS WHAT HAPPENS IN LESS THAN 3 WEEKS?!  I'm so upset :(  I'm trying to be optimistic as much as possible, of course.  

 

The good thing is the pain should subside in 7-10 days, and the shoe is removable so I theoretically shouldn't be too worried about it, for the wedding itself.  The Monday excursion may be an issue, and getting around the resort a lot.  I'll have to see if they have scooters and things, just in case.  I have an appointment on Friday with the surgeon, to make sure it doesn't require surgery.  Until then, I am chugging ibuprofen/icing it and elevating it as much as possible.  Heal, heal, heal!

Oh no! That is the LAST thing you want to worry about right before your wedding! Crossing my fingers for you that you won't need surgery. Definitely rest it as much as you can to keep swelling down and promote healing in the meantime. I had a stress fracture in my ankle once and the swelling was really the worst.

 

Just have people carry you around like a queen at the resort! Fanning and feeding you grapes is optional. May not be so bad ;)

@beckys98  Thank you!! I told my FI that I'd need to get one of the Rascal Scooters for the resort and the ruins excursion, hahaha.  I like the carrying around better, since it comes with food! :)

Oh man that truly sucks and I'm so sorry. Hopefully it will be half healed by the time the wedding rolls around and the cast can come off at times, for longer periods of time.

 

As someone who got stuck with a non-removable cast for half a summer I feel your pain, but the good thing is that at least you can remove yours to swim and things like that :)

that would be the best haha.

 

I remember when I had that cast, I went to a place that was like a huge supermarket/home store (i lived in Argentina back then) and they gave me a scooter to get around. I felt like the queen of the store. It was so much fun haha.

Oh that is horrible. But I guess worse things can happen. Chin up girly and if you rest it and do as you are doing then it should heal faster. Keep us posted.

Oh no!!! Sorry to hear that  :(  I know you must be so upset. At least now you can tell the airline that you need extra time to get to your seat and settled in! Not sure if your traveling with your dress in hand, but extra time is always a good thing. Rest up and I will be hoping you won't need surgery!! ::fingers crossed::

@marinah84 OMG!! That's horrible!!! Take care of yourself for the next three weeks and perhaps it will be ok by then! I have my fingers cross for you that you won't need surgery! Sending all my good karma and well wishes your way! Positive thoughts! Positive thoughts!

My FI cracked off his front tooth over the weekend... Right to the gum... Has to get a crown and a post! It's going to take a month to fix... thank god it happened now instead of a few weeks before the wedding!
