sigh.

i just checked my email. so here's the story. FI's brother in law is a minister and he agreed to officiate our wedding. i got all excited and wrote up this super cool unique civil ceremony. i sent it off to him and he wrote me back today and said how he thought we were going to do a christian one and that he hopes i will change some of it to reflect more of that nature but if we still wanted to do the civil one, he would still do it.

i feel really weird about the whole thing now, i emailed him back and told him that i was sorry that i didn't inform in the beginning that i wanted a civil ceremony and not because i don't believe in God but i just choose to be more introverted about it. hence the whole reason for getting married outside of a church.  plus i think i am more spiritual than religious (i was raised catholic).  i'll have to talk to FI and get his input. i feel weird asking him to still do it though, especially if he feels it is against what he believes in. my best friend though (and "wedding coordinator") offered to perform it for us and just get ordained for the day or whatever you call it, as a plan B.

and another thing. I don't know why she did this, but FI's sister-in-law, the one that wrote me the kinda rude email, bought tickets for FI's mom to come visit us for two whole weeks before the wedding WITHOUT EVEN TELLING US. i mean come on! let us know in advance!  what is she gonna do for 2 whole weeks? what will she eat? will she makeover my kitchen and fill it with white rice and fried foods and encourage FI to eat it all? cuz that's what she did when we were up in SF and he ended up gaining some of the weight that he had lost over the year. i think she thinks i starve him.

yes. a happy valentine's day indeed.

Hey there, just thought I'd stop in to say hi. That kinda sucks about your officiant. But if it's not what he believes in, I'd be afraid he'd try to put in other stuff or something. I'd say just get the officiant for a day thing just in case. It's only $50, and you'll probably feel better having it as a backup. Plus, she can go off and marry someone else that day! J/K. 

Maybe next time at kickboxing, you should bring a pic of FI's SIL, and put it on the punching bag....

oh and btw, i sent invites to friends + partner if they were together for a long time or living together. he did not fall under either category.

and FI's brother in law emailed me back with the ceremony revision but i'm too scared to read what changes he made. i'm so going to the gym tonight.

ok i just ran 5 miles and i feel SO much better than i did earlier. i kept telling myself that it'll be alright. the wedding will be fun and exciting no matter how many people there are! i told my friend he could bring her. i guess he must be pretty serious about her if he asked right?

what a great day this has been, and i'm not being facetious.

i came home early from school since our afternoon session was cancelled (woohoo!) and my 42 bamboo cups from the coconut king came in. yaaay!

also, FI's ring from costco came in today too! my ring came back from the diamond gallery (FI had it engraved) and they cleaned it and it looks so shiny and pretty.

and my caterer, Ellis from Yokozuna's can score me a sheet of haupia (coconut pudding dessert, kinda like flan) for the wedding. that means i can decrease my dessert order from Edelweiss, saving us more $$$.

AND, i got a flower quote from Wholesale flowers, so i may end up getting my flowers from them.

i love it when things come together.

we got so much done today! we are only waiting for 4 more couples to let us know whether or not they are coming. sweeet!

i bought the paper for our table numbers. about to print them soon... i went to "scrapbook your life" off rosecrans and while it was a nice store, they did not have 8.5x11 paper. so i went to the one in poway, by michael's and joanne's. that place has a ton of cool scrapbooking stuff.

on the way home, we decided to eat at sipz, a vegetarian restaurant. it was actually really good, even though the service was slow as hell. i've never had tofu 'meat' before. i ordered the curry 'chicken' and then we had the coconut stuffed with sweet rice for dessert. omg it was so yummy!!!  i'd go back just for that stuffed coconut. the prices were awesome too, and then even have brown rice!!!

FI is watching tv right now and working on the parasol for my sister. it's kinda funny glancing over at him, holding a paintbrush and watching the basketball game.

oooh we also went to wholesale flowers and i placed my flower order. that place is so awesome. and the prices for the flowers make me swoon.

let's see, what else did we do... we dropped off FI's ring to be resized and engraved and i paid off my edelweiss balance. we initially ordered wedding cake, cheesecake, and fruit tarts. but now we are just getting cake from them because we are going to order the fruit tarts (since they are way cheaper) and haupia from yokozuna's. mmmm haupia (coconut pudding).

aw yes. things are starting to come together. i think our next big project is the seating arrangement and the place cards. oh and FI still needs to finish the card box.

i also had my consultation appt with natalie bohlin. i had all these ideas and wanted to have a hair trial (last minute) and she was nice enough to accomodate me. dude i totally loved it!!! and she is so nice, i'm totally looking forward to having her do my hair and make-up in (gulp) 27 days!
