I’m so glad its friday and I got a lot done this week:
I made headbands for my flower girls
I finished and mailed out my invites to the out of state guests
I bought my jordan almonds at a great price from micheals [$3.99 a pound]
Finally got around to attaching ribbon to my Flower Girl pomanders [yes i put the ribbon in last]
Made 25 more paper cranes.. [they are taking forever!]
I also bought wood for my cake stand

Wow, great job ticking off to-do’s this week bells! Unfotunately, I feel a bit behind what I had scheduled on my to-do list. What I did get done:
Select 4 options of flower girls dresses and get the pics sent to their Mom(they are sissies) to make the final decision.
Find a florist, and decide on our wedding flowers.
Narrow hotel choices for out of town guests down to two (now just need to pick one and sign the contract)
Figure out that we may need to stay in the US on our honeymoon, as we don’t have passports, and that cost + flights may totally be unrealistic (Oh well, We love Key West)
Shop unsuccessfully for bridesmaid and my accessories (my shoes), but at least figured out the style I am looking for, for all.
**Make plans to go camping with the Fiance this weekend, leaving today… I have been neglecting him with the wedding planninng, so this was a big accomplishment** 🙂

Honestly, I haven’t accomplished anything wedding related this week. But I stayed on track in terms of my eating and working out. So that’s good.

we are behind on buying everything but the “figuring out what exactly we are going to get” part is coming along nicely ….here are some of the decisions we’ve made this week….
-get a caterer instead of diy food…..found local prices that are available on our day
-finalized the invitation idea ….now its a matter of figuring how much paper and purchasing it and getting it printed and assemblied….
-found linens online for cheap…..just have to buy them now
-figured out idea for favors….(again, just have to purchase them now)
-booked freindor for hair and make-up
we still have so much do to…..but its nice to finally know what we’re doing for some items…. 🙂

It’s Not Wedding Related, but I got two interviews and I applied to be an assistant manager in a small clothing store, and they’re supposed to call me today! 🙂
In wedding news, I bought my Bridesmaid or Best Man dress for my friend’s wedding, finished her bridal shower invites and I did my menu for my wedding.
