Hangovers suck!!! I wish I could of stayed longer! Next time :) that dress is gorgeous on you...I would want straps too...when you have big boobs strapless is just not comfortable! I can't wait to see it once its finished :)

 

Good luck with your job interview! I hope you get it!! It's getting down to the wire now for you...what day do you leave for Mexico?

Thank you ladies. You're all so sweet!

 

@@Meandhim we fly next Sunday the 18th! 11 days to go!! Woohoo! I can't wait now. I haven't seen my son in a year so I'm going to be scouring the airport for him since his flight from Vancouver lands right after ours. Hopefully we'll get to talk in customs line or something lol  He's next door at one of the Iberostar resorts, not right with us which I'm really upset about but they waited too long and our resort is now sold out. Doug says he's really not in for paying for passes back and forth for the whole week and I agree but still.... We're off to Vancouver next month for 5 days so we'll get another visit with him then but on vacation, it would have been really nice to have all of us together in the same spot.

Beautiful beautiful dress! You look so great in it and you can see how happy you are in that dress (despite the hangover).

Good luck with the interviews!

Aahhh!  6 days until we leave for Mexico! And finally getting organized I think. Quiet thanksgiving for us today after getting back from the US late last night for the grandsons' birthdays. And I got to pick up my goodies too!! Very happy with everything. Well worth the wait!

 

I want to give a shout out to our Etsy bride to be Perian. The talents this young lady has are unbelievable! She did a chalkboard sign for me to take to Mexico that is absolutely gorgeous, and two chair signs - Mr. Right and Mrs. Always Right in beautiful pink. Thank you Perian! And all of this was done with her own wedding only 2 months away! Even Doug was impressed with how the signs turned out and believe me - that's saying something! He's a guy, what can I say! lol But he does like them and has carefully wrapped them up for the trip!

 

So here are the goodies that I picked up yesterday.

The little ring box for pictures.

I found this Etsy seller that does these beautiful hangers and the only one I found that does the "I Do Again" idea. It's perfect for us and I love the pink flower she added to it.

My beautiful Adrianna Papell blue shoes. I love the sparkly bottom. I just need to rough up the bottoms because they're very slippery.

Our labels. Love how they turned out. Don't know what I'm going to do with them all since we only have 6 cups but there is a minimum order now required so there will be extras!!

My necklace and earrings set. This turned out perfectly! Would highly recommend the Etsy seller!

Chair sashes, the table runner and the gold overlay for the table with the cake. Sorry the colours aren't very good in the pics.

 

 


Here are the rest of the goodies.

The maracas. Pink and blue and will go with the white I already have. Each person will get a white and a colour.

Our bags. These are so great and exactly what I wanted. Guys will get royal blue and girls turquoise or pink. These were so reasonably priced and the price goes down with more ordered so definitely worth it. I had them shipped to the US but I think it would be worth looking into shipping to canada.

 

I've started putting my oh sh!t kits together. I picked up a bunch of stuff at a store in the US so each bag will have a couple of bandaids, a shout wipe, a small sink pack of Tide, rolaids, pepto, travel bottle of scope, advil, chapstick, emery board for the ladies, a small container of safety pins, Axe for the guys in a travel size, hand sanitizer from BBW, anti-bacterial wipes, aloe lotion. I think that's everything. With only have a few people it was easy to do a bit more. I also have a robe for each of us since we're doing hair and makeup all together and a shower puff. Don't think at this point we'll be adding much more. Doug still has to get something for the guys just to add in but I have no idea what.

 

We're almost there. Anxious to go now. I just want to get there. I did my dress fitting on Thursday night but it was still too long so it needs to be taken up more, the bustle needs to be done and the lace she added as straps needs to be tightened a little. It's not quite exactly what I was hoping for but it still looks awesome so I'm happy with it. I did the dreaded Spanx on the weekend on sale at Bon Ton in the US so that's off the list. I have to go back for my dress this Thursday and Doug picks up his suit so that will be done. I bought the little mini steamer that @@TinkerSofi recommended and it's great! Comes with its own little travel bag and is very lightweight so I think a good investment.

 

On the job front I had 2 second interviews - one Thurs and one Fri so I'm really hoping I hear something this week. It would be nice to come back from Mexico to be ready to start something new.

Everything looks fantastic. As per usual :)

 

Where did you get those bags from? They are the perfect size I think!

 

Love you went for the necklace with the off set broach. You know how much I love that style :)

 

Love the hanger too. Pack it well between something or leave it in the box it came in as they bend out of shape very easily.

 

Good luck on the jobs and I hope you hear soon. I had an interview last week myself :) keep us posted.

How did I miss that pic of you in your dress? You are absolutely glowing in it, it's the perfect dress for you. I can't even tell you have a hangover, and wine hangovers are the worst.

 

I love everything you've picked up, from the bags, the maracas, ring holder and of course the shoes. I love that blue tone. If they're too slippery, you can always buy slipguards for the bottom. They should have them at Walmart or aldo (really any shoe store). They have clear ones so they won't take away too much from the shine on the soles.

 

And that's so exciting that you leave this Sunday, I'm excited for you!!

 

Oh and good luck on the job front. Two second interviews is great. It would be wonderful if you can quit your old job before leaving huh?
