What Are You Doing This Weekend?

Ladies, I have a four day weekend!!! Hooray!  I do hope that I make good use of my time this weekend and get some things accomplished, as well as enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend.

WR
Work on invitations (I'm serious this time...Ksturgis, are you with me girl?!)

In looking at my list I realize that I have been "working" on the same WR items for the past three weekends, and I haven't gotten anything accomplished.  I need to get on the good foot, for real.

NWR

Clean up house
Watch my tv shows recorded during the week

    Thanks Tam!  We have a three tier cake - first tier is amaretto cake and amaretto buttercream icing layered inside, second layer is tiramisu cake with chocloate mousse layered inside, third layer is pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese icing layered inside.  The entire outside will have italian buttercream icing.

    For the rehearsal dinner we are having it at a Mexican restaurant so for starters we'll have:
    - guacomole and salsa with chips
    - choice of three salads
    - butternut squash soup (OMG this is soooo good)

    For the entrees we have mix and match tacos:
    check out www.eatdrinknada.com for all the varieties...I can't type them all!  LOL

    For dessert we have our baker making a red velvet two layer cake with cream cheese icing and a layer of white chocolate mousse in the middle.

    tamtam, I don't know yet. The FI are going to look at venues in Durham, Mebane, Belmont, and Forest City. We live in Durham, but my family lives in Shelby (in between the mountains and Charlotte). So we're considering everything between Durham and the mountains.

    WR:
    New E-pics to put up for ceremony and reception.

    Continue working on the aisle runner

    Order a new cake topper (FI f&cked up the other one trying to put the bling on before I got home. I appreciated that he wanted to help but he messed it up in the process. I am glad I only paid $14. If it was higher I would have killed him I think lol)

    Pick out our ceremony wording and work on our vows.

    NWR:

    Dinner and Movie on tomorrow night with FI
    throwing out the kids and cleaning the house from top to bottom.
    Just chill out and enjoy this blissful ride to my wedding day.....

    Eagles, what did you decide to do for your rehearsal dinner?  I still think you should have it at a museum.  LOL.

    @ Cincy, your cake sounds so yummy!  We are going with a three tier cake too.  I looooove Tiramisu.  FI doesn't.  We were going to go with an amaretto filing too.  I loooooove amaretto.  But we ended up with a tres leche cake with prailine filling and the other two will be vanilla and rum cake with buttercream frosting and pecans.  I wish I would have gone with the amaretto for the third tier now though.
