    I just caught up on your to do list – you’re making great progress! One suggestion… as to the ? mark by Target for your registry… I have heard lots of people complain because their return policy on gifts is kindof terrible, and if people buy you a gift from there they sometimes forget to give the cashier the registry info, or get a gift receipt. Just a thought… might be a headache. I love the pics of the hairpiece – I bet you can do that no problem – I’m excited to see the finished product. Talk to me when you do invitations… that is my FAVORITE part. 🙂

      Thanks! Good point about Target. I heard the same thing from friends, that’s why I was debating. That’s a really good call about people forgetting to say its for a registry when they purchase, too. Its a lot easier at a BBB, because they usually ask you. At Target – no way.

      I will DEF keep you in the loop and consult on invitations. I haven’t really thought too hard about them because I don’t really know what I want. When did you start thinking about invitations?

    What is your something old? I put the cross from my great-grandmothers rosary on my bouquet – I bet your giant Catholic family has something neat like that!

      That’s right, I need something Old, something New, right? That is a fantastic idea. I think you told me that before – love it!
