Thanks @snswedding2016!  I can't believe how much I've accomplished, makes me want to just finish everything lol

 

It's crazy that we are leaving next Saturday!  I am sooooo excited!  I can't wait to see it all come together too  :)

@deecol you're leaving so soon!! It looks like you are in amazing shape and ready to have a nice relaxing couple of days before you head off! Everything looks amazing! I love your place cards!

 

What a lovely surprise party your work put together! That's so sweet and I loved that they faked a possible early birth - haha!

@deecol not going to lie, I am incredibly jealous of your list and that you're going to Mexico in 4 days!

Your place cards are beautiful! And how sweet of your coworkers.

Enjoy your couples massages :)

I love our place cards too, I'm obsessed with her writing. She also did the "and so the adventure begins" sign and those mugs.

Omg @snswedding2016 I couldn't believe the effort they went to to pull this off, they were sure that I knew because I generally know everything that's going on lol but my mind has been so sidetracked they got away with it all. Planned a fake meeting while the others set up and then one of my coworkers pretended to receive a text that one of the girls who is pregnant was in trouble, she just said "Christine... Her belly!" And ran and I ran too lol it was amazing. I'm super happy with the progress, can't believe we leave so soon!

@calgarybride2015 I'm happy to hear you were also calm! It definitely helps to have things organized. Thank you!! I'll be sure to share some pics as soon as I can!

@ashhtayy honestly a month ago my list seemed really daunting, it scared me. Just start hammering away and the rest falls into place, don't worry! Thanks! I'm so looking forward to our massages!
