Love your ring choices!! I definitely understand what it's like when you feel like you're just drowning in work and life! Work has been busy for me lately and then on top of that i'm almost a month out from leaving so it's starting to feel a bit more hectic. You're still doing really well regardless! :)

Ack! Just got an email that my TA is on an immediate leave of absence for personal reasons and someone else is taking over. Final payments are due in exactly one month. Hope this transition goes smoothly!  :huh:

Well, the new TA seems alright. She's been responsive to my emails and just emailed to our group about the final payment deadline in early December (well, I know at least 3 of us have received them). So that's a relief and hopefully everything goes smoothly. 

 

We had dinner last night with Jeff's family. It was his dad's birthday and his parents' 40th anniversary. 5 of the 6 of us are going to Mexico (his brother-in-law will stay home with their kids - unfortunately the whole family can't afford to come). It was fun to talk about the trip and listen to them discuss the things they want to do and the research they've done on the area. They are excited! :)

 

I picked up our rings today. Whoo-hoo! I know I already posted pix, but those weren't the real deal, so I'm posting again  :D

Oh, and we booked our honeymoon resorts. I've already mentioned we are flying from Cancun to Costa Rica. The first three days will be at Tulemar, a resort with a private beach, on the Pacific side of the country near Manuel Antonio National Park. The second three days will be at Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel & Spa, in the interior, up in the hills. Our last night will be near the airport (not booked yet). We're really excited about the trip! Maybe even more excited than about the wedding?!? :blink:

@calgarybride2015 Hahaha too funny. Actually the original plan was to go to Belize, but it was too tough to get to from Cancun (go figure - since it's practically next door).

You gotta take a bus :)
We had planned to see Shawn's cousin in Merida. Then spend Some time in Cancun and then Belize by bus. At the end I just think it would have blown our budget then his cousin kinda fell thru/took to long to confirm so we picked Cuba.

@vancouverpetunia  Oh I LOVE the rings!! They're gorgeous! Well - can you say gorgeous about a guy's ring? Guess not... so yours is gorgeous and his is very nice and masculine! But I love them both! lol

 

You so absolutely have to review Costa Rica please!! I can not wait to get there. It's on our retirement list. So is Belize. Third is Panama. Doug says we're going to start the scouting trips next year but that may get delayed a bit. I'm trying to convince him to go to the Gran Bahia in Mexico in April and meet up with family from the UK but we'll have to see... lol But I would really love to hear about what you think about the country and since you're going to be in the interior, what you thought of it. We don't want to be right on the beach because the heat is too high.

 

I agree with @calgarybride2015  It's fun listening to everyone be excited about the trip. Enjoy it! It's so good to have the support!

 

Good on the new TA that it's working out so far! Fingers crossed it stays that way!!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@acw271011 Shawn's friends moved to the ambergris area of Belize at one point. Sounds gorgeous.
