We are going to Panama for our honeymoon..for two full weeks! I'm excited to finally go to the Carribean and see the Panama Canal.
We won't be leaving til a few weeks after the wedding. We were hoping (and still are) to go to Sasquatch...all three days or even one day of Memorial Day weekend. Unfortunately tickets sold out early this year, but I'm still really wanting to make it happen. (Hint hint...if anyone has extra tickets or would like to give us theirs for a wedding present I'd gladly taken them!)
It will be nice to have a few weeks between events for packing and shopping and getting out thank yous, etc. etc. It will be very hard to go to work on Monday morning after the wedding though...
I just ordered wedding sparklers for John's and my big send off as man and wife after the wedding. It will be so fun to run to our limo through a sea of lit wands waved by our friends and family. I hope we get some great pictures from them!
I'm heading to Sandpoint, Idaho this weekend to visit Melissa, my Maiden of Honor. I can't even remember the last time I saw her! ... I fly to Spokane Friday night and then we'll drive to Sandpoint and go out for some drinks. Saturday we have a Spa Day! We're getting massages, pedis and facials.
The rest of the weekend is up in the air but I'd like to go shopping for a dress for my bachelorette party in a few weeks and want some spring clothes now that the sun is finally showing itself. I am ready for a relaxing weekend away and when I get back Sunday the rest (almost the end!) of the planning and crafts will begin. 37 days and counting. I'm almost a Thimsen!
We are down to 46 days til the big day! The days just seem to be winding down quickly at this point! I've been doing a lot of little projects... Last night I painted the frame of a chalkboard I found at Good Will for $2.99. We will use this on the bar to showcase our Signature Drinks. Today I bought a cake topper and some treats that will be part of the wedding favor. I seem to be crossing two things off my list and then I add one more. Hopefully that math works out right so by May 19th or so I'm done. :)
I had my 2nd dress fitting on Saturday. It went well...it fit and we scheduled my pick up of the dress for May 21st at 2pm! Two of my girls and I will be staying at the Tulalip the night before the wedding so on the way there we'll just stop off and get my gown. I do want to try it on one more time just to make me feel better that it is all done... things are tacked together with pins still right now and there's one button that needs to be fixed. I just want piece of mind that I won't get stuck by pins as I'm walking down the aisle or that my button won't fall off or some other disaster. I know Darcy is great and will get it done...I just want to see for myself before picking it up 24 hours before I wear it...
I also sent out Rehearsal Dinner invites! May 20th at 6:15 pm we will be at Hidden Meadows dotting our I's and crossing our T's in preparation for that Saturday and then off to La Palmera for dinner and drinks and toasts. :)
