Tinkersofi's Planning Thread - Azul Fives August 13, 2015

Hey! No I have a suspicion he didn't let it heal properly. He drives truck for work and probably didn't wear the boot long enough. Visually you can tell it's been repaired and there is just a lot of scar tissue there that I think it rubs and gets angry. He doesn't seek care when it does. I'm sure there are much better outcomes.

 

Ugh I've never had a pilonidal cyst but I've helped drain them. I feel for you! I can't believe it randomly drains itself. That must hurt like a ****.

good to know! I'm always on people's case to do physio because I think it's so important, especially after spending so much time without using a muscle. Unfortunately the body is on a different time to heal and we're just way too impatient. 

 

The cyst is ok now. It bugs me very rarely, and when it does open up is not really painful anymore, but it was at one point where I couldn't sit too far back. Funny enough, my parents go me this natural ointment from Australia when it opened back up for a 4th time. I would honestly cry at the mention of another surgery because they were painful and took so long to heal, plus it wasn't guaranteed that it wouldn't come back. I have no idea what this ointment was, they got it online but it worked like magic! It hasn't really bugged me ever since using that.

This is completely true! I thought my fiance would flake out on it a bit but he was very diligent about going twice per week and he would also swim once he was allowed. It is SO important! The only issue he has is he has to be careful which gym shoes he buys because some come up higher in the back and rub the scar, but he still plays basketball 3 times per week!

Sorry I've been MIA for so long now! I'm so sorry to hear about your dad! I really hope he gets healed up but I think he will. If the timeframe is 9 weeks then physio he should be in good shape to enjoy both his vacation and your wedding! Positive thoughts!!

 

Your guestbook cards are so cute!! What a neat idea!

This weekend somewhat productive day in the wedding planning department. Most of it involved shopping though haha. 

 

I'm done with the bridesmaid gifts. I'm getting their dresses so I didn't want to spend too much. I got 4 gifts even though I only have 2 bridesmaids but 2 are for Juan's sisters. I didn't really get the response I wanted from him. He said that it was totally unecessary and I basically wasted my money :(. He also said that I'm being way too generous. I don't know, he seemed to be in somewhat of a bad mood today. I didn't even mention to him what he was going to get the groomsmen because it would have ended in somewhat of an argument, which I didn't have the energy for. Anyways, back to the gifts themselves. I got them a pendant and earrings from a seller on etsy, they come in a little box with a message that says "I couldn't say I do without you". 

 

I also got my garter from etsy. My plan was also to go cheap here because I didn't think it was all that important but I wanted to have one. I found one that I liked for $6 with $3 shipping so I was sold haha. 

 

I'm all set in terms of bathing suits and beach gear. I went to the mall this week with a friend and we tried on some bathing suits so I got one. I tried one of those high waisted bottoms and I thought I would hate it, but surprisingly it looked really good :). My bathing suit addiction is officially out of control. When I came home I set them all on my bed and counted how many combinations I could have. Let's just say I could go on vacation for about 3 weeks without ever repeating the same combination haha. I need to stop buying them :(. I also got a really nice floppy hat which makes me feel like Carmen Sandiego/J.Lo :P 

 

Tomorrow is my alterations appointment. You really wouldn't know considering how much bread I stuffed my face with today :(. I know, it's awful but I couldn't stop, I just love bread too much. On the bright side, if it fits after eating bread, it'll fit in Mexico, right? haha. I'll make sure to eat light things tomorrow at work that won't bloat me, otherwise I'll come out of that appointment feeling miserable. Wish me luck!

@@TinkerSofi haha love your Carmen Sandiego reference!! Sounds like you had a very productive weekend!! 

 

Do you mind sharing your the etsy seller you used for your garter? that's also on my to do list.

 

Sending you good dress fitting vibes!! I totally agree - if it looks good after all the bread it will look great in Mexico! My designer said the same thing to me after I had some fittings during the holidays …after all of the Christmas cookies!  ;)

 

Just looked at your ticker - 3 months and 3 days!!! Woohoo! I just got really excited for you! Sooooo soon!!!

I know! It's getting so close, I can't believe it. It's been forever since I've wanted for the time to pass by :P 

 

The vendor for the garter is mythreeaunts and she's in Toronto, so you might even be able to pick it up! haha. I think you'll like some of her stuff since it seems we have very similar tastes :).

 

This is the one I got. I don't know if you guys will be able to see it, but i'll try.
