@perianjay – OMG I can’t believe you ordered your flowers 10 months out and all I have done is decided on them but not yet ordered. So behind.
Sweat Topic – I was thinking of wearing a little, non-sexy pair of shaper shorts under my dress if it works. My dress is really form fitting so it may show and that may need to be axed. Although I don’t sweat a ton I figured leg sweat was inevitable, especially in a dress like mine and the shorts may help. I had no idea about that product from Sephora so thank you for the heads up. I’ll add it to my shopping list! Mike and I will definitely benefit from using it.
@krystalball – I’ll grab some of that deodorant you mentioned. When Mike had to wear dress shirts for work I can’t even guess how many we had to throw out over the years.
Men’s Attire – I quickly checked out that site you sent and the prices are amazing. We were at Yorkdale today and popped into a few stores to get some ideas. Linen isn’t out yet and I’m nervous we will be cutting it to close it we wait. Ordering online and getting it altered may be the way to go. We saw a lot of grey and blue and Mike decided he is set on blue, navy actually. That's progress, right? lol
Registry – @TinkerSofi what an overwhelming experience! We went today and it was a lot more stressful than I had envisioned. In my younger days (lol) I could make decisions on the fly but now I have such a hard time committing to anything. We did select a fair bit but the consultant told us to over-scan and go online and delete afterwards. Example – if you like two toasters scan both and make a decision once you get home. It was tricky doing it with Mike too. We really do have everything we need but we certainly don’t have the best of the best. His response to almost everything was “well we already have that and it works fine, what are we going to do with it if we have two?” lol Men. So cute.
@acw271011 – He is super sweet. We are lucky to have found one and other. It’s all about being in the right place at the right time. Never would have thought I’d meet the love of my life across the Country on a work trip. Everything happens for a reason
Wedding Band Update
Checked a big one off the list today! We ordered our wedding bands...YAY! We decided to have each ring engraved with our Mexico wedding date and each other’s names. Some may think that is cheesy, I personally think it’s adorable
Mike says once we get legally married he is going to wear the band everywhere EXCEPT around people that are coming to Mexico LOL I didn’t say anything then but come on, that can’t really happen haha
I'm including a picture of my engagement ring as well so you can somewhat invision them together. We kept it pretty basic but I couldn't be more happy. They're perfect
We had decided to do something super low key since only my family is in Ontario – like go get married and then take my parents and brother out for dinner. Well we got a big surprise last week. Mike’s Mom and Nonna are flying in from BC for a week over Easter. This was the perfect surprise because we thought we wouldn’t get to see his family until the wedding. I think this will be the perfect time to tie the knot (legally). They will be shocked and will love that we included them.
That’s it for updates. After a day of shopping we’re cozy on the couch watching a movie and I’m working on some of our stationary. The time is flying!
