The Countdown Begins

I started a post this morning that actual required a few brain cells to put together. It was all about life insurance and why it is so important to get it now while you are young instead of later. about halfway through though I ended up completely spent and decided ditch the topic. It is actually something I feel strongly about and have lots of info on so I'm sure I'll return to it someday but now is just not the time.

The WEDDING is now just 2 days away. The rehearsal dinner was last night. Everything went well, the banquet hall is beautiful and no matter what the situation Justin and I always have fun with whatever we do.

I proofread Justin's speech on the hour and a half drive up and I'll admit that if he sticks to what he wrote it blows mine out of the water (I'll post a copy later). It is much more heart felt and chockful of personal memories that he shares with the groom.

The dresses are finished being altered and short of me looking like a giant brown Christmas tree (my brother's description not mine) everything fits well.

I'm not sure if it is a cold or allergies but whatever "IT" is Madison has it. She started with a stuffy nose yesterday and now has a little cough and droopy eyes. Hopefully I can find some meds. today that don't come flying out as soon as I give them to her so we can make it through the weekend. I've also decided to do her hair myself. $90.00 plus tip is just insane for a three year old's hair. She doesn't have much, it is very fine and two little hands could destroy anything that is done in a matter of seconds. I just can't bring myself to spend that kind of money on her hair. here is a pic of what I was able to do in under 10 minutes. I curled it with my smallest curler, pulled the crown of her hair back and added the bow. The bow is a little lopsided and I'll take more time on Sunday but overall I think it came out pretty good. What do you think?

I'm off to pick up a few odds and ends before coming home to pack up for tomorrow. Then I'm going to try and spend the rest of the day curled on the couch with Madison in hopes of a speedy recovery for her. She keeps telling me she is better now but I'm not chancing her getting run down!

Amy said...

her hair looks great like that! i wouldn't spend $90 on my own hair! i think my wedding up-do (as the bride!) was only $75!
and leave it to Cor to call you a brown christmas tree... lol

Danielle said...

$90! What were they gonna do- give her extensions. OY! I am sure you don't look like a big brown x-mas tree. I can't wait to hear the details.

Andrea said...

Her hair looks so pretty!! And wow...$90 for a hair style??? That is crazy...I've never even heard of it ever costing that much. I'd definitely do my own child's hair too. I hope you have a good time at the wedding and that Madison is not feeling sick or anything!! Let us know how it went. :)
