Things To DO List

What's on your Things To Do List that you dread doing?  What's on there that you can't wait to do?

I remember in the beginning of my search I couldn't wait for all of the food tastings.  The cake tasting, etc.  But now my list is pretty boring and I pretty much hate everything on there.  The thing that I'm dreading the most is the DIY projects, because I'm not very crafty. 

What about you ladies?

    I'm not DREADING anything yet. But I'm so anxious to hurry and find a venue!!! Kristi and I are going to an open house at the venue I super want week after next! I'm so ready!!!

    When I get the venue, then I can REALLY pick the colors. {Semi-dreadful}

    Things to do - LOVE: 
    - tasting with caterer (done)
    - cake tasting (done - twice.  LOL!)
    - e-pics (June 13th!)
    - make up trial (June 13th!)
    - buy dress and veil (done)
    - hair trial (done)
    - shop for jewelry with bridesmaids (this summer)
    - book photographer and videographer (done)

    Things to do - HATE: 
    - DIY projects, so I'm starting to think I won't even attempt to DIY anything
    - anything related to linens, place settings, escort cards, table numbers, etc.  I don't care that much about that stuff, although I want it to look nice.  I really don't want to spend much time thinking about those things.
    - transportation (thank goodness FI is handling this!)
    - more updates to wedding web site (I liked doing it the 1st time, but don't want to mess with it anymore)

    The one thing I'm dreading is the guest list. Everything else I think I can deal with.

    I'm dreading getting the response cards back. We already received 1 where the person didn't mail it back (wasting my damn stamp) and didn't put their name on it. It was FI's coworker though so I knew who it was. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come.

    <div>Tam, when is your next hair trial?  Are you trying for that same Eva Longoria style or are you definitely going with a bun now?  Are you doing air brush make up?  I can't remember if you said you found an air brush MUA in NC? </div>
