I feel pretty good but I freak out once in a while. I don't think I've quite grasped the fact that it's only a few weeks away! I still feel like I have another year to go hahah. There hasn't been much planning going on, but I feel like everything is pretty much done.

We're ready to send our welcome brochures to get printed, but I think we should put a hashtag on it and we're having trouble deciding on something. Mainly we can't think of anything that isn't taken ahaha. What do you guys think of azulkisses? I don't know, I'm not convinced about it so I might just scrap the whole idea and have no hashtag. Just tell people to tag us on facebook/instagram or send us the pictures. After all there's only 30 of us. 

 

We also thought the song by Shakira (Colombian), Lucky, that she wrote to her then Argentinean boyfriend. It says "lucky that you were born so far away so we can make fun of distance" (or something along those lines haha), but if we make our hashtag makefunofdistance I don't think anyone else would get it.  

 

What do you guys think?

 

Update on the BM jewelry

 

So remember how I told you guys that these gifts have been stuck at Canada Post since June 1. I tried following up with customs and Canada Post and apparently all mail that came in June 1-3 is pretty much a write off. It's gone missing, they have no idea where it all is and people are getting quite impatient. My reaction is "Are you freaking kidding me?!". The lady over at customs said that Canada Post is the one that hands the mail over to them but they haven't handed anything for those three days and they're getting calls like crazy. There's basically nothing I can do until Canada Post gets their crap together. She said that in some occasions the status won't be updated but people receive it anyway so she said all I can do is keep checking my mailbox and pray that that's my case. How frustrating is this? I thought I had ordered this with plenty of time but maybe not. I guess I'll wait until the last few weeks and if it doesn't come in I'll try to get them something locally. Which still makes me angry because what a waste of money. 

 

As for my necklace for the wedding, it was supposed to be here already but Canada Post made a mistake and sent it to the wrong place, so now they had to re-route it, according to the tracking now it should be on its way. I am not impressed with Canada Post right now at all! It's not even Christmas time!!

Hey!

 

Sorry to hear about your jewelry. I've never had a liking for Canada Post so I feel your pain. I hope it all works out.

 

My coworker recently married and used their last name and knot. So #smithknot or whatever. Just an idea!

I think your ideas are cute but personally like ones with your name somehow. But I don't hashtag so what do I know :) I think any would work! We only had one or two use wed pics :( most used Facebook like you said.

 

Congrats on being close to printing the brochure.

 

Edit - if the jewelry never shows don't you have some recourse with the site you purchased or your bank/pay pal? I'd want my money back!

One that bugs me most is I'm at HOME awaiting my package and an hour later I have a card in my box that I wasn't home. Grrrrr

That hashtag is a great idea. But I'm leaning more towards just telling people to tag us on Facebook. It will just be a lot simpler since they already do anyway . I'm sure Juan will agree with that too.

 

Yeah I'm thinking of waiting a bit longer in case it shows up in the mailbox but otherwise I think it was certified so I can probably get my money back somehow. Either from the bank or from canada post. I just don't understand how you can loose 3 days worth of mail. That's a lot of mail!

oh my! Yeah I've never had any issues but lately it seems that everything I order there's an issue with the shipping. The necklace has been on re-routed and processed for the last week or so. I hope they don't mess that one up either.

Let me guess.... are you by any chance on a superbox? lol The majority of the delivery employees are so lazy they won't even try to deliver. They sit on the truck and fill out the card and stick it in either a mailbox or a superbox. They get to leave when their "deliveries" are done so guess what....
