I'm sorry to hear about everything with your daughter in-law.  Don't feel bad for unloading we're all here for you =)  The Canadian Dollar situation really sucks!  I hope it gets better soon because it makes things a lot harder for us brides that are going to be married soon.  I'm starting to feel that I need to start cutting out some extras I had initially wanted just so I can stay on budget.

i know! It sucks completely! They said this morning it was an eleven year low!! Doug and I went south to North Carolina in 2002 and I remember the dollar was at about 63 cents back then. Boy - did we take a hit. I'm in the same boat though. I've just scrapped the idea to pick up a couple of little things to stick in the bags because by the time I pay the shipping it's not worth it. Not for the number that I need. If the number was worthwhile I might pay it but for about 6 it makes no sense. We're off for Labour Day weekend with the trailer to New York but it will be a quiet weekend for sure with the exchange. We booked at the beginning of August and if we cancel now we won't get anywhere decent to go for the weekend since it's the last of the summer.

@acw271011 Ugh.  Reading about your Daughter-in-law made me cringe!  So awful!  So sorry you have to be legally related to someone like that.

 

You know you can unload on us anytime!!! xoxoxo

Man That Sucks! Sorry to hear about all your DIL trouble...she sounds like a piece of work! Like @deecol said...this is the spot to unload! we all have done it! and that's what we are here for!

 

The sight of the dollar right now is making me physically ill! I hope something happens soon and it goes back up...although chances of that are unlikely!

Always here for support. I've unloaded my emotions many of times on here, but I think I gravitate to this forum because there are so many amazing ladies on here who offer some great support. Always here when you want to spill the feelings. I'm really sorry to hear about this situation with your DIL.. she sounds like a very irrational person and someone i'd never want to bother affiliating with. I'm so sorry that you have to deal with that. Sending hugs your way!


Ps. let me know how your door hangers turn out!! :)

It's been a busy few weeks so I'm a late in catching up. So glad you finally got to try on your dress. It's beautiful and you will feel like a million bucks in it when you walk down the aisle :) 

 

I have haven't tried most of these tricks, but check out Pinterest for shoe stretching tips: 

https://www.pinteres...aking-in-shoes/

I have taken shoes to a shoe repair place to have them stretched and that has worked out pretty well. Costs a few bucks though.

 

I'm sorry to hear about the stuff with your DIL. Not cool. I wish things were easier for you.

 

OMG the Canadian dollar is killing me. Actually, I'm in complete denial and pretty much ignoring it. We don't have to pay for most things until next April, so I'm hoping it will improve. Although it doesn't really sound like it :(

@vancouverpetuniab I'm on the same wavelength as you - just hoping the US dollar turns around by April!  Fingers crossed!!!

@vancoucerpetunia @deecol Last night I had an actual breakdown over the Canadian dollar lol. I was also denying it up until this point where i'm now three months away and i'm panicking about our terrible dollar. :(

 

I never thought i'd cry over how poorly our currency compares to American currency.. ohh weddings.

It's tough, no doubt. I'm so used to it since my stepson has been in the US for 8 years so I don't like it, but I'm able to balance it out. For anyone not used to it, it's sticker shock for sure!


I received our sunglasses yesterday and the bags and a couple of other things have been delivered to my stepson in PA - my jewellery, the table runner and chair sashes, our cup labels and other things. I won't pick them up until about mid september though so by then I'll be able to put everything together. The good thing is that our friends from here are on the same flight with us and parking their car in our driveway while we're gone, then we're all going in my truck to the airport. It means I'll give them their bags before we go and they can pack them into their luggage. No transport for me! Yay! lol I will take a couple since there are Vancouver people joining us in Mexico but less than what I thought. I can live with that.
