    @jes0912 I know! I'm really excited about it. I've never been to Europe and it's definitely been a dream of mine, so I feel like 2015/2016 will complete me in many ways!

    22 days until we leave + 27 until our wedding day!

     

    Having a really hard time believing that it's almost here and that we're so close.

     

    Not much of an update. I've been tanning (bought unlimited tanning) & booked my eyelash/nails/waxing appts.

    Chester and I are going tonight to exchange our money to USD for the remaining balance for the videographer/photographer. We've also decided that any spending money will be PESOS.. we just can't justify the additional cost for USD money when they accept PESOS there and it's pretty close to our CDN dollar.

     

    We have to finish the music playlist. We were holding off so that we could add some more songs.

     

    We went to the tailor and dropped off Chester's suit to be altered and my dress is a perfect fit right now!

     

    I have a den FULL of wedding stuff so right now that's my main worry.. just finding a good way to organize it and get it down with us.

    The next few weeks are due to be very busy for Chester and I since we have some birthdays, dinners with friends and I'm picking up my best friend from the airport in almost two weeks!! This is exciting for me because I haven't seen her in three years - she's been travelling abroad and is finally making her way home from New Zealand.

     

    I don't think I will have many more updates before I leave (ah crazy!!)

    I still can't believe you're this close! I'm super excited for you, too bad they don't have a webcam so we can watch it.

    I'm so glad your wedding dress fits perfectly, it looks so beautiful on you.

    And I'm still torn about pesos vs us dollar. I know financially it makes more sense but I always find it convenient to just tote dollar bills than the equivalent in pesos. Let me know your thoughts when you get back.

    @Wafflesmom Thank you!! <3 

     

    I know what you mean.. It's definitely easier to carry around USD.. I just don't think I can take anymore of the 30% hit. It's been pretty rough on our budget and this is one area where we can potentially cut it. We still plan to bring some USD, but we are bringing pesos for shopping and if we buy any excursions etc.

    You make a good point about using it for shopping and excursions. Plus, the exchange rate is so bad and you're right about saving money. We're doing renos so we still have lots of expenses after the wedding.

    @perianjay it's coming up so soon!!!! I'm so excited for you!!

     

    I hear you on the playlist...I'm getting nervous about ours being ready as well. Luckily we have a friend who has offered to help us put it all together and gather songs we don't already have. I just have to sit down with him to go through it all. 

     

    The packing of the stuff is starting to worry me too. Let me know how the packing goes!!

     

    Can't wait to see it all come together!!!

    Woohoo so awesome that your day is fast approaching. Can't wait to see it all together. These 22 ish days will fly by!!

    Glad you decided on peso and really it's not that much more to carry around :). Who doesn't love to save some money especially in this season (and economy)
