I know. One of the girls sent us a screenshot of the weather over there and all I thought was "dear god. We're going to die" haha but I honestly love the heat so I'm really excited!

Packing today. It made me realize that I might want to start packing for Mexico like 2 weeks before haha. There's just so many things to think of and do at the last minute. And if I forget anything this time it's kind of like whatever. But I would hate to forget something important when going to Mexico!

When I'm going on a big trip, I start to make a pile somewhere about 2 weeks before I'm leaving and I put things there when I think of them. Often I think of the strangest things at the strangest times and if I don't grab them right then, I might forget. Oh, and also I'm a huge fan of lists!  :D Have an awesome time in Vegas!

@TinkerSofi Just an FYI that I needed to call Karisma today about something and Ivis answered the phone in the wedding department. Not sure if you're waiting on any answers but if you are today might be a good day to call!  :)

I've been thinking about you and how your trip to Vegas went... with the 'excessive heat watch' and all :) Hope you had fun!

I'm back!! I came back last night at around 1am. The trip was great, it was HOT!! 40 something degrees every day and the last 3 days we had the heat watch thing, which was extreme heat without any wind. My flip flops actually melted a bit from walking, that's how bad it was. I still loved it. The girls surprised me with a bachelorette party in our room and then we went to see the chippendales, everything was just so much fun :). Before we left for Vegas I asked them whether I should get some bachelorette stuff like beads and things like that and they were like "I guess, if you want to" but they didn't sound too convinced about the idea. As it turns out they had bought everything already and were going to surprise me hahaha. 

 

This was sort of my trial before Mexico in terms of the heat, sunburn, etc. The good thing is that Mexico doesn't get that hot, it's usually around 30-35 degrees and even considering the humidity, the breeze by the ocean makes it more bearable. This was all heat + concrete= just terrible. I didn't get sunburnt!! This is such an achievement for me because I always do, but I made sure to wear my hat pretty much everywhere and reapply sunscreen every 2 hours or every time I came out of the water or if I was sweating a lot. Talking about sweating, I will die in my dress, but that's ok :P

 

@snswedding2016 I did get a reply from Ivis while I was in Vegas. Well, it turns out half the stuff on my sheet is still wrong, despite me writing all the changes down in point form on my email. I honestly couldn't make it any clearer. I'll have to e-mail her again tomorrow. Today I was just grasping the fact that vacation is over :(. At least it's just 2 months to go for the next one! :D

I was definitely thinking of posting pictures haha! I have them in my external hard drive so you'll all have to wait until I get home haha :P

 

They don't let you take pictures at the chippendales until the end where you have to pay. That was a blast though. We were pretty rowdy and in my group we had everything, from the girls that scream and try to get one of their shirts to me and my other married friend, who just looked at each other and giggled nervously :P. It was a good show, I can definitely appreciate the dancing haha. They asked me up to the stage (to my dismay) and they gave us tasks to do, at least I got the tamest one.

yeah it was nice to get away for a bit before mexico, I felt like I really needed it. Also, stress was running somewhat high between Juan and I, so it was nice to miss each other for a few days :)

 

Back to wedding planning: 

 

- My parents bought me a necklace to wear on the wedding day. It's from the same seller on etsy as the rest of my jewellery. She had sent me a 10% discount after the first purchase and I completely forgot to use it this time, but she actually still refunded me the 10% since it was my second purchase, which was super nice of her! I can't wait until it arrives to post a picture of it and see how it goes together with my earrings and bracelet :D.

 

I didn't want a necklace originally thinking that I'd be too decked out, but then I saw some pictures of other brides and then when I went to fitting appointment I felt like something was missing around my neck. 

 

- You guys remember I bought my bridesmaids some necklaces as well? I'm getting a little worried since according to the tracking they've been in customs since June 1st :S. I don't know what to make of that. I'm not saying it's the seller's fault. She did have a few problems with the supplier but she let me know and I agreed that I could wait a little longer, she actually shipped them promptly after the was able to sort that out. I'm more like "customs, get your s** together!". It's just 4 necklaces!
