I’ve decided to book at mani-pedi for each of us on Feb 10. Leon gets the paraffin treatment, I get the nail polish finish. It’s not cheap over at the Ezcape Spa, but we are worth it. I can just imagine us all relaxed and glowing when we get to Florida. Ah… Each day should be a Honeymoon from here on in.
In the meantime, I am terribly distracted by wedding plans. I am falling behind in my marking and my studies. It’s so hard to be focused on classes when I am busy figuring out what to engrave inside Leon’s ring.
My dress has been in the bathroom getting steamed for over 2 weeks and it still has huge marks where it was folded for shipping to the store. I will try to machine wash it as recommended. I hope it works. I’ve also been busy repairing some old jewelry. I decided to change the findings on a pair of mother of pearl earrings. I think they will be suitable for the wedding now. I remade an old bracelet into a long strand I can wrap around my wrist. That’s been packed for the trip as well. I still have more jewelry to repair. Maybe tomorrow? Life has a way of getting in the way.
The planning for the return party continues. I’ve invited everyone so far. I got their email addresses so I can send them a proper invitation. Now I am trying to plan a menu. So far it’s Jerk Chicken Wings, Coconut Shrimp,plantain chips with cilantro dip, maybe some Jamaican patties, tropical fruit salad (?) and cupcakes. Of course I will pick up some suitable drinks, maybe coolers in crazy flavours and beer with lime wedges. I need more food ideas.
