Oh my gosh... yes.. I'm a complete nut lately! I've been stressing about everything, but I'm beginning to see the light. I have so much to do. Work always seems to get in the way though... must we work 40 hours?!?!?!?! I mean isn't that a bit MUCH!!!

I am really excited.. I just wish the day were here already! The map turned out great!

So what's your latest wedding obsession???... Mine's been the programs. Not sure why.. I really should pick a hairstyle since my trial is next weekend.  

So how were the job interviews?

My obsession...all the little things ...invites, programs, looking at ribbons, candles, etc. I just need to sit down and order the damn stuff. Also, looking for RD/honeymooon clothes and BMs gift stuff! LOL. That should be the last thing on my list. My big goal today hopefully is to order my invites but it makes me nervous so I have been putting it off.

Thanks. The map took some time and I hope it prints small ok...now I have to figure out on what will I print it and how (home or get it done somewhere).

The interviews went good. One cut short, only night shift available. So I am keeping my fingers crossed for the other...really loved the floor when I was given a tour and the manager is super nice.

Do you know what kind of programs you're doing?.. the fan kind, a booklet, the tiered kind..

I'm trying to do a booklet, having a hard time finding light pink cardstock though for the cover. It's all too bright.

What are you doing for BM gifts?

Hi there...I think I am going to do a booklet/trifold. I saw some ivory trifold programs at Staples that I may use and I might just stick a gold ribbon on top. Something simple that I dont have to pay a fortune for!!! All my invitation, etc etc is ivory so that is what I am aiming for.

Light pink cardstock?hmmm, have you tried maybe a scrapbooking store?

For the BMs I am giving them each a tote with flipflops, body wash and a photoalbum. All different colors/scent/etc for each girl. I have 3 of them who will be here the whole week before the wedding so I wanted to do the tote. In addition I am getting them earrings and a bracelet to match their BMs dresses. I am having Mindy by bedazzled by Mindy do it. Still need to make an appointment with her though. Thats about it. It shoudlnt be too much for the gifts since I have only 3 of them. The body wash was way cheap at nordstrom rack...$5 for a 7 pack and flip flops are on sale at Old Navy right, 2 pairs for $5. :) The totes I wil get on ebay for like $14 a piece. So Im thinking under $60 for each!

What are you doing? Have your BM's gotten their dresses yet? Man mine havent even gotten their tickets yet. I need to harp em though. I told them by the end of March beginnign of April they need to order those suckers (the dresses at least). I guess we'll see what happens!

Alright...so after sleeping the day away (those night shifts are not fun!) I thought I'd update my journal.

No real news. I have been hassling Bridal and Tuxedo gallery to find out when my veil will be in (they originally send two weeks, then it was supposed to come in yesterday). I dont understand why it is so hard for them to look on the computer and see "oh, maybe next week!). Gosh!!! They always have to call me back. And then they don't. I know they always call when something is in but I still wanna know! Maybe I will just have to go there and hunt them down and then they can't call me back later! LOL.

I am anxious for it to come in though because I wanna see if the shoes I got will go. I really love the shoes...I think they go perfect with the beach idea and they arent super high heeled (I hate heels...I only wear little heels and flip flops mostly!). The shoes were only $40. I originally wanted these $160 shoes but they didnt really go with my dress! Anyway here's another pic of the shoes if anyone wants to see:


Ok so the other thing is I am trying to get my BMs on the ball to order their dresses. Why is this so hard? Ughh. FI's sister (my nieces are in the wedding) informed me that my cutie flower girls are going to order their dresses too. I keep going back and forth with what color though? A white dress? or Ivory? It will have a coral sash. I am leaning towards white since Im in white and the groomsmen will have white shirts. What do you all think?

Alright so I have been chatting with Torrey about every few days or so. Well I was venting to him and I told him how I just want all of this planning done. His response? "Everything is planned." The boy does not understand all the little things left (invites, programs, map inserts, gift buying, menu cards, seating, final meetings...this list could go on). Ughh!!!! I know he is super patient with me and I apreciate that and he insists upon being told all the wedding stuff while he is away and coming home to help me. I have to be patient with him too I guess. He has really stepped up to the plate with all to do, so for that I am very thankful to him.

After my mall trip last week I am still on the look out for dresses for RD and changin into after the wedding. They do have these cute strapless dresses at J Crew for $99. But I dont know if that is too much to spend. I might just opt for a skirt and top for the RD. I need to go up to LA and give the stores there a look. I have though been able to find lots of honeymoon stuff! Flip flops, tanks, capris....Man when I get shopping sometimes I am just on a roll!

Anyways, I think that is it for now. I still need to order my invites (which my mom wanted to put off till next week) so hopefully this upcoming week those puppies will be on their way. I have some more days off next week so I think I may work on the inserted cards for the invite, looking for ribbon for the xmas ornaments, ordering seashells, and maybe ordering the BMs totes from ebay! Hope I can try to get some of the list done.

How's everyone else doing???
