@Pinksapphire:  Sending the invites was such a relief.  Seriously.  Once I have some firm numbers in my excel workbook I’ll feel even better.

@littleprettyliz:  I feel the same. I knew what I still had left to do but I feel like random things are popping out of left field lately. 

I guess I should start getting started on the rest of my list with the few hours I dont have work, and if I get this new job my head will be spinning up until the wedding but one “big kid” job is better than two. Hope everyone else is not feeling as stressed 🙂

@littleprettyliz:  I know what you mean, I tried everyone who traveled for hair in my area… the prices were insane! I’m going to a salon with my mother the morning of, so we can have some bonding together- especially since we don’t live in the same area and it’s going to be a super rough day without my dad. Anyway back to the point- traveling hairstylist is obviously a business to get into! lol

 

For me, I’ve only recently crossed off honeymoon flights and transportation. Started the seating chart with those who have rsvped (planner said to make it before you get any back so you have an idea and then you can play around with it more once the list in finalized). My hair trial is next week so I’m excited, and I need to send my invitation to Mr. and Mrs. Mickey Mouse 🙂
