  • I would call the Park office and chat with them, they're very helpful. A lot of people get married at Schwabacher's Landing, but that area will be closed this summer due to budget cuts   Scroll down on this board and view posts about the Jackson a…
  • Yep, it is. Just try not to get sucked into all of the things that the media, friends, and relatives tell you that you "have to have." There are many things that people don't "need" to spend money on, they just want to. Maybe re-evaluate your lists …
  • I gave up giving up things for Lent, HA! But seriously, I'm not religious in any way, shape or form and people keep asking me what I'm giving up. I think I should have a plate of chocolate for dinner.
  • You girls crack me up. I'm going to a friend's bachelorette party. 3 of her good friends live in the city so she wanted to have it there (she lives in UT). The party is May 18th & 19th, brunch the morning of the 20th and then I might go to Hal…
  • Nicole, you should relax your grip on the weights, usually during the concentric phase - like in a bicep curl, you would loosen your grip slightly as you lower the weights. Otherwise, blood flow is constricted. Tell your trainer how you felt after y…
  • What a deal! You look great in it too! Congrats
  • Venue: Ceremony & reception in a friend's yard (see PIP below) Theme: Don't really have one DJ/Band: I - Pod Flower Inspiration: maybe succulents & other flowers that I haven't decided on Colors: brown, green, white Dress: Etsy sample dress…
  • Happy New Year ladies! WR: not much. Working on knitting my bridesmaids' shawls, hoping to get the 3rd of 4 finished this weekend. NWR: watching football, eating, cross-country ski trip on Sun. my FI is a sound tech so he's always workin…

  • That's what my group of friends does when faced with adversity - girls night / happy hour. Just spend time with her and if she wants to talk about it, be there to listen. It's good she has friends like you who are concerned & will be there for h…
  • I didn't feel an argument either, it's just an interesting thing to discuss.
  • Beautiful! So glad you're happy with them after all the waiting. Very sweet you left a chair open for your dad, that teared me up a little. I agree, your niece looks like a baby doll, too cute!
  • I got way more excited about ours than FI did too. Boys. 
  • Bleh, sorry about your accident too. I'm lucky (I guess?) I had an avulsion fracture when I was 16 at a Joffrey audition and my teacher sat me down & told me that she wasn't going to tell me I couldn't perform, but that she wanted to train me to…
  • Yay!  Megabus? That sounds scary
  • Have you checked if a company in another town rents them? It might be a lot less hassle to drive an hour or so away with a U-haul than to make them. I think it's a beautiful idea though.
  • The ribbon is a nice touch. Those came out great!
  • A friend of mine had a soft kennel for her little dog. The sides were mesh so she could still see out the window. She had it on a booster kind of thing so it was high enough for her to see out the window and it was secured by a seat belt.
  • Not necessarily wedding related, but there are a lot of hilarious stories about how she exasperates her husband - Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson (the Blogess). It's a good vacation read. But if you're offended by foul language and…
  • Yeah, screw men and their freakish metabolism. pffffft! Congrats on getting another card paid off Jennie!!! That must feel awesome. It's great that you're taking charge and working so hard on your debt.

  • Nicole, remind me, are you going to NZ for your honeymoon? If I don't chat with you before then, have a great time!! (I won't be on the TK Weds. & Thurs.) ...and only 19 days until I leave for my honeymoon...new bikini in the mail yesterday...w…
  • try this: http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/group.php?gid=137318479645392&ref=ts If that doesn't work, put a post out to SuperRNLuvsChef (that's Lisette) and ask her to send you an invite to the group.
  • I'm not a fan of all inclusives, but my daughter and I stayed in a little place in Negril, Jamaica and there were all inclusives in that town. The beach is beautiful and it's on the west end of the island, so you get the best sunsets there. I think …
  • I would have made a list of things to not forget - like personal things for me. I spent the night at a condo with my BMs the night before and one of them ran to the store for me in the morning. I had no deodorant, hair brush, toothbrush, etc. etc. I…
  • In Response to Re: Hmm...TK being anti and pro-offbeat at the same time: [QUOTE]Did I misread this? I thought the MSN article was saying that these were bad ideas, but linked to a TK article that highlighted them as fun ideas.  I didn't get the imp…
  • WR: probably won't have time for anything NWR: going to watch my daughter perform at half time (her 1st performance with the dance team) tonight, volunteering at a run for charity tomorrow, lesson plans/house cleaning Sun. Not so fun now that I put…
  • It's totally up to you and what you can afford. We're letting my daughter and her best friend (ages 17 & 16) bring a plus one. The BF has been dating someone for a year & I don't want my daughter to be a 3rd wheel. Then the 4 of them can hav…
  • yum, cheese. I did vote color, but after reading the comments from people who have ordered grayscale & said it looks fine...maybe I take it back. If it's free AND it looks good...maybe stick with that
  • FI is designing the STDs & my brother is turning them into magnets at his sign shop he owns. Then bro & I are going to design the invitations & he'll print them. He's giving us printing, banners & personalized beer coozies for our we…
  • I moved back in with my mom when my daughter was 7 because my college intership was 40 hours per week for 0 pay. I also lived in an RV for a total of almost 2 years on 2 occasions (for travel and fun, I guess we were kind of homeless, but intentiona…
