well Hi everyone. It's been ages, and I feel a little guilty cos I'm good at stalking, but just haven't been posting. I'm feeling quite relaxed and mostly organised, except for the weightloss aspect. Some of you sound so disciplined and controlled with your food intake. My excuse is partly that I can't really lose weight, cos my dress won't fit if I do, but I'm tempted to just slightly up my exercise for the last month. See how we go...
Had my Hen's last Saturday, it was fantastic. Nothing crazy, we just booked a private room in a pub in Sth Melbourne, organised a belly dancing teacher to come in first, then ate dinner and talked. The Belly dancing was so much fun, and a great icebreaker to start the night with, everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves, which was what I was hoping would happen. I did get put into a belly dancing costume (midriff baring and all!!), so that was great entertainment for everyone, and secretly a bit of fun for me. My cousin who lives in Sydney flew down as a surprise, I had no idea she was coming down, so that was great too.
Today I dropped my e-ring back to the jeweller, to get the wedder made to fit. Fingers crossed he will be organised & have it back before the 8th...starting to think I should contact the DJ & the photographer to make sure they're both still okay, am assuming they are, but I do like to have these things sorted. So far we have 65 yes's, just waiting on 15 more to reply, but they still have a couple of weeks to go for the official RSVP, so not stressed yet. We did a menu tasting a week or so ago, which was good, except for the fact that they prepared the wrong menu selection, so we didn't get some of the dishes we wanted to try, so we're going back again next week to do the remainder. Once that's done, I can get the menus printed, as well as our place name tags. This weekend DF is off to Brisbane to watch a football match, so I'm off to my parents for the weekend, which will involve decorating our cake boxes, and making the jam for our bombonierre. And we start our dancing classes next week, which i'm looking forward to, should be a bit of a laugh. We want our wedding dance to be "You'll never walk alone", partly because we love the words, but also, it's a Celtic football club theme song, and has a good chance of making at least half of our congregation cry... and I can't think of anything more, other than between now & the wedding, I also have to organise a 2nd birthday party for my son, so have to decide whether I'm doing a dinosaur or a tractor cake...oh the stress
Anyway, hope you're all well, and that everything is coming together for you all. it's getting exciting now!
