Busy Busy week

I have barely had time to blog between getting things wrapped up at work and getting everything together for the BIG weekend. Yesterday I got fake eyelash implants!!! That sounds so funny, but they look really great and natural. My friend Summer just got a job as the Spa Director at a medical spa so of course she talked me into getting them. I got a great discount and they did the lowest volume. The lady implanted one lash at a time. She put around 80 lashes on each eye. It took about 2 hours to do. I won't have to wear mascara on my top lashes :) The best part is the little curl on the side lashes. I love them!

Today I'm working until lunch and then heading to Swainsboro to get my hair highlighted. Willy will meet me there around 6:00 and then we are off to Columbus!

Tomorrow I have my last dress fitting at 9am, then my mom and I will be getting pampered at the spa until about 3:00. I'm so excited! I will be getting my spray tan at 4:00 and then heading back to my parent's house to eat dinner with everyone who traveled from out of town. Willy's family will be there and my entire family will be there as well. After dinner, we will have a crew going down to the reception site hanging paper lanterns. The place said we have to do all the decorations....ugh! Who knows how long it will take us. Here's a picture of our reception site. You definitely have to use your imagination to picture PINK and YELLOW everywhere!

We will hang the lanterns on the left and right sides (you probably can't see it real well). The bars will be on the left side and the food will be on the right side. The band will be in the back of the room on a stage. We will have white chairs with white tablecloths with the most beautiful centerpeices ever! Our florist is great! The lighting will be low because there will be candles on most of the tables. Can you picture it? I can't wait to show ya'll pictures of the real thing.

Friday we are having the bridesmaids luncheon at the River Club at noon. Rehearsal is at 5:00 and then dinner is at 7:00 in the Rankin Courtyard.

Saturday...IT'S WEDDING DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
