I just had my first Body Shop party! It was fantastic! I had a few friends, family and other friends friends....we did the makeup party which is called Champagne Shimmer so I included a glass of bubbly with my home made pavlova and ice cream :D AND I made 130 bucks commission. I'm so excited...this is basically gonna pay for a quarter of the wedding!

Today is the day of reckoning for our deck. Its my partners last full day off before everyone starts arriving on thursday.

If we dont get most of it done today we are just going to cordon it off (dont want anyone to get injured at our party)

I feel like im getting anticipation sick haha. Have so much left to do.....and am running out of time, although it would have helped if i cleaned more of my house yesterday instead of having a lazy day watching movies on the couch. Looks like I'll be busy tonight!

Sounds like me, Mel! "Oh I need to do the laundry....hmm might just watch one more movie first" Good luck! I hope your party is fantastic and you have a great time!

You're organized, Sidonie! We haven't even begun to look at BMs dresses although I have a pretty good idea what will suit everyone and what we'll end up with, depending on money. Glad your party was a success! What kind of products do you sell? I love the body shop body butter :heart:

Good luck at work today, Erin! I'm sure you'll be fantastic!

Well I have finally received the photos of me in my dress from mum and they are now posted in my show and tell :-)

Also invitations are done we just need to print the additional info cards and stick the magnets on the back of the invites.

Mel good luck with the deck and your engagement party :)

Had an absolute breakthrough on getting stuff done last night.

Most of the deck is done, bar the stairs (actual decking planks or whatever they are called will definitely go in tonight and tomorrow and will be done.

Most of the my house is absolutely spotless (in prep of my Mum coming to see it for the first time, our first owned house that is). She says to me, "your friends wont care what your house looks like but there better not be any dirty laundry hanging about. People will think I didnt raise you right" hehe. I love her.

And I got the majority of my invitations made last night!

After a day of feeling really hectic yesterday I now feel in control and on top of things. Also Im just about to put some pics of the invites I made in my S&T

Haha your mum sounds cute, Mel. Good work on the deck, you must be relieved!

I'm nearly finished my noodle boxes! Thank jebus! Now, as long as I don't change my mind (again) I should be set! I doubt I'll change my mind though because I really don't fancy making another 100.

Awwww, Erin! That sucks! I know what it's like though. My FH has to leave for work at about 4:30-5:00 and doesn't get home until 9:30-10:00. So he's usually too wrecked to do anything but eat and shower and sleep. Just think how lucky we are to have partners who work so hard for us!
