Soooo close now!
I was worried about the tags getting wrecked to being pre attached but we had no issues on both the maracas and the fans.

10 days is going to fly by.

I didn't realize people stopped mail anymore, maybe because I have a community mail box and get lots by email in way of bills. I wish they'd just stop sending them lol

  • Call your cell phone provider and inquire about adding an international package to your plan for the week or two you will be abroad. Depending on your phone carrier you might be able to get this for free if traveling to Mexico or for a small prorated fee if traveling to the Caribbean. An international plan on your phone will allow you to communicate with family/friends or vendors without incurring enormous roaming fees.
  • If you have a smart phone and do not have an international data plan, make sure you turn off your data while abroad or you could incur outrageous fees when your phone automatically updates email/text messages EVEN if you don’t use your phone. Call you phone company for details.

Goodness, I hope these days fly by! I am so excited!!!

We're stopping our mail just so our box doesn't get full. We use to have our neighbor collect our mail when we went abroad,  but we've moved and are still new to our city.

I wish we didn't get bills, either  :( 
The world would be a happier place if everything were free! lol


I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.
