    How many days are you taking off before the wedding? 2 but the 4th is a holiday so I get 3 days off :)

    How many days are you taking off after? Taking the Monday afterward off and we leave for our honeymoon the Friday of that week.

    Are you going on your honeymoon right away? Nope, leaving the following Friday. I wanted time to spend with my family all day after the wedding, and I also only wanted to take 5 days off work for it. So we had to leave on a weekend.
     
    If you are going on a honeymoon where are you going? Sandals La Toc in St. Lucia!

    Have you started to shop for honeymoon clothes yet? Well I bought a bunch of dresses for dinner there, and I have new bathing suits. And I bought some new shorts and a skirt for this summer, but not honeymoon specific. I still need to lingerie shop...

    How many days are you taking off before the wedding?  3 days.

    How many days are you taking off after? just 1 day

    Are you going on your honeymoon right away?  No, we are going two weeks after because FI's best friend was supposed to get married the week after us. The wedding got cancelled but then my friend is getting married that weekend so we decided to keep our plan of going away 2 weeks later and attend my friend's wedding.

    If you are going on a honeymoon where are you going?  Bali (Indonesia). I love southeast asia, but have never been to Bali so I'm super excited. Two weeks in paradise!

    Have you started to shop for honeymoon clothes yet? Well not anything naughty, but I bought a sarong and a few other items I'll need. I really need to update my summer wardrobe though.

    How many days are you taking off before the wedding? I think just three....but my work is super flexible, so I may end up working from home the entire week of the wedding. WAIT I lied....I have to cover depositions the Tuesday before the wedding POOP ON A STICK. that might be the only "real" work I do that week.

    How many days are you taking off after? We get back from our honeymoon at like 11pm on August 7th. I will probably sleep in the next morning and work a half day the 8th to catch up on stuff.

    Are you going on your honeymoon right away?  yes, pretty much. We are doing a morning after brunch on the 29th, then are heading to a suite at a hotel by the airport that afternoon. Our flight is at 6am the next morning.

    If you are going on a honeymoon where are you going? Zoetry Paraiso on the Riviera Maya in Mexico

    Have you started to shop for honeymoon clothes yet? Yes, I shop too much!!!

    How many days are you taking off before the wedding?
    I'm taking off the whole week before the wedding. Originally was just going to do W, Th, F, but our firm is having our Summer Outing on Monday at the country club, so it doesn't make sense for me to only come in on Tuesday. So I'm just skipping the outing and heading to Philly that Sunday.

    How many days are you taking off after?
    Two weeks.

    Are you going on your honeymoon right away? 
    We're leaving on the Monday following our Saturday wedding. My mom is driving us back to NYC on Sunday night and we leave Monday morning at 11am from JFK!

    If you are going on a honeymoon where are you going?
    We're going to Mauritius for a week then one night in Johannesburg, then 5 days on safari in South Africa. I really, truly cannot wait.

    We're thinking of switching our hotel in Mauritius from the One & Only (clicky) to The Oberoi (clicky
    ) because we're reading a lot of reviews that say there are a bunch of kids at the One & Only and that is NOT the type of honeymoon we want. It would probably cost us about $2000 extra since we'll lose the deposit and half-board isn't included at the Oberoi, but we'll probably do it anyway.

    You only get one honeymoon, right?

    Have you started to shop for honeymoon clothes yet?
    Ugh, no. I really am not looking forward to it, either, because I have to buy safari gear and I will NEVER, EVER wear this stuff again. I am not a beige kind of gal - most of my clothes are black/grey and those aren't appropriate for safari. It attracts flies or bugs or something.

    For Mauritius I'll just need beach wear and I have
    plenty of that already. I did just buy a new Vix swimsuit though but that was mostly for bachelorette party purposes :)

    How many days are you taking off before the wedding? Technically, none. I'm a teacher, so I have about a month off before the wedding anyway.
    How many days are you taking off after? Same, about a month before we have to go back to school (although I have to do some trainings in August-- unsure of exact dates). 
    Are you going on your honeymoon right away? No, FI is a teacher, too, and he has to go to a conference about a week after the wedding.
    If you are going on a honeymoon where are you going? Nowhere planned. We'd like to do a nice long weekend somewhere and save up for a big trip for next summer.
    Have you started to shop for honeymoon clothes yet? No, sadly.

    I'm off the entire summer... So, I'll have 3.5 weeks off before the wedding and a month off after. My FI is a teacher (I'm a school counselor which is why I have off) so summer just made the most sense to get married. Plus, he coaches football & wrestling so fall and winter isn't an option.

    We're leaving three days after for the HM. St. Lucia!!

    And I've been shopping like a mad woman for HM clothes!! (Let me clarify... I do more shopping than I should a lot... but, I'm justifying it now by: Well, I can wear this on the HM.)

I feel like you guys are few and far between so I always get excited when I find another one, haha.  She is at an elementary school here in Indianapolis, she absolutely loves it! she is always taking random groups of children on different outings/trips that remind me of your Maggiano's experience you posted about a few weeks ago!

    Oh how fun!!! Here in Chi, school counseling jobs are SO HARD to find. I'm working in a high school career center helping students with post-secondary planning. It's fun- I'm in my fourth year of doing that. My position isn't technically a 'counseling' job, although I graduated w/ my Masters in School Counseling three years ago. And, basically you need a counseling degree to do it. It's confusing how certain school districts classify jobs. I don't even know if that all makes sense.

    No, that definitely makes sense! I remember my "counselor" in high school who mostly just helped me with college applications/life planning/etc. It sounds like you are in a great place!!

    Most of my MOH's friends from her master's classes are jobless, it's really sad!! She was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, and she had lots of connections at the school where she ended up getting hired.

    How many days are you taking off before the wedding? 2 Days

    How many days are you taking off after? 6 days

    Are you going on your honeymoon right away?  Yes, the wedding is on Saturday
    and we're leaving Sunday morning.

    If you are going on a honeymoon where are you going? Just to a cabin in WI. We're
    from Sunday to Saturday & doing a family-moon (bringing all 5 of our kids ranging in ages from 11-22).
    We'll do famiy cabin type stuff - lounging, games, fishing,
     boating.


    Have you started to shop for honeymoon clothes yet? Nope, don't really need
    to. My shopping will revolve more around meat to grill, s'more stuff, making
    sure we have enough beach towels. etc.

    Yeah, I also do a shitton with financial aid & scholarships. A lot of students/parents need help with the FAFSA, so I do a lot of those with them. Like literally sit down one and one and go question by question.

    A lot of the girls I went through grad school don't have anything in education yet. I'm probably the closest to a 'counseling' job.

    But, I work at the high school with my best friend/MOH and FI. I actually met FI through her. Then, this is my first year at this high school. I was doing the same thing at another high school for the three years prior. So, we make it fun. And, I actually eat lunch with my FI every other day (We're on a block schedule) so, yeah.. haha.

    mbody/butterfly - My MOH/BFF is also a school counselor... she finishes her masters next year.  Jobs are almost impossible to get here, as well!  (She works at the college level right now.)

    How many days are you taking off before the wedding? - 2 days to a week, depending on how we work it out

    How many days are you taking off after? - Technically I'll have the rest of August off, but we'll be on our HM for a little over 2 weeks.  I just got a school library job so I'll be going into the schools a bunch of times after we get home to setup and see if there's anything I need to put on order.

    Are you going on your honeymoon right away? - Wedding is Saturday, our flight is EARLY Monday AM!

    If you are going on a honeymoon where are you going? - Hawaii - Oahu, Maui, and a week in Kuaui!!!

    Have you started to shop for honeymoon clothes yet? - Yep.. I only shop sales because our budget is so tight, so I've gotten little things over the past few months.  I just ordered some new bathing suits, too.  I only really need to get a ton of sunscreen and water shoes (we're doing lots of kayaking).

    I'm looking forward to the honeymoon way more than the wedding.  I've never been one for being the center of attention or dressing in fancy gowns.

    How many days are you taking off before the wedding? I'm a teacher, so I have 4 weeks before.

    How many days are you taking off after? 4 weeks after before school starts, but I'll definitely be doing work for most of the last 2 weeks.

    Are you going on your honeymoon right away?  We're flying out at midnight the Wednesday after our Saturday wedding. Wanted some time to relax with friends and family after the wedding, and then we'll still have a day or so to put presents away and pack for the honeymoon.

    If you are going on a honeymoon where are you going? St. John's in the USVI- so excited!
     
    Have you started to shop for honeymoon clothes yet? Nope. I've been too busy to shop for the HM, though I love to shop. I just have one dress specifically for the HM so far and another from my first shower that I'll bring. Need to find bathing suits and coverups and shorts and more dresses. A lot of my summer clothes don't fit because I've lost 15 pounds in the last 2 years and last summer wasn't really sure if the weight would stay off.

    ETA: Oh right I bought some lingerie and sleep shorts too when I was at the outlets. I guess I just need more day-wear.

    How many days are you taking off before the wedding?
    I work for FI.  We are taking the day before off because it is a Friday and I don't have any work on Friday since the post office closes early.  We are leaving by 12pm or 1 pm that day and traveling to our wedding venue. So we are taking one day off and that day happens to be my birthday.

    How many days are you taking off after?
    We are taking a mini-moon.  We are coming back three days after our wedding. 

    Are you going on your honeymoon right away? 
    Our HM place is the island we are getting married on so we will already be there.

    If you are going on a honeymoon where are you going?
    Like I said in the last question, we are staying on the island where our wedding will be.  It is an island on Coastal Georgia called Jekyll Island.  It was where the old millionaires of the United States went to get away.  I mean people like the Rockefellars, Carnigies, Firestones, Macys.  Yeah, those people.  They started the Jekyll Island club which is now a hotel on the island. We wanted to stay there, but it is really expensive so we are going with our usual hotel.

    Have you started to shop for honeymoon clothes yet?
    I have looked for things.  Does that count?  Haha!  I am looking for some cute simple tanks and a couple sun dresses.  I am going to see if FI and I can go to TJMAXX tonight.  That is where I got my night before wedding dress.  I am also looking for some lingere.
