HiEveryone! I made my first attempt at the centerpieces and..eh ...there not that bad. It's not as easy as I thought it would be, but I def think it's doable! I also got my shoes and earrings:). James has been amazing. He is very supportive and helpful. We're going to take advantage of the deals this week and buy our supplies for the wedding. After mailing the save-the-dates today and buying the supplies next week, I 'll have a lot of craft projects to start. We're making the escort cards out of shells and making a "de-sanding station." We are also making our programs. My break from school should be fun!
Thanks Melissa and Mama Second for the postcards! They are going to make beautiful tablecards!
Thanks for reading. Enjoy the pictures!!!

So...the save-the-dates are in and now I am just waiting for a few more addresses to send them all out together! Also I went to the Wedding Salon Expo yesterday only to realize expos just are not that much fun without a posse :(
I ordered my flower for my hair and my shoes are in the closet! We're getting there!! Flowers are ordered.
OH and it's officially Christmas time in the city :).

Have you visited the Southernmsot Hotel's website yet? http://www.southernmostresorts.com/
It is amazing and beautiful! I cannot wait to relax on a hammock by the sea!
I just spoke to the hotel and on top of the 13% discount, they are also adding an "early booking discount" of 5% if you book your hotel stay before April 1st! You can request more rooms than needed than later change the amount of days you are staying, so overbooking rooms to be safe is encouraged. You have 10 days before your stay to change the length of your stay. The rooms book fast in May and June, so overbooking may be the best bet. Remember to mention your group code "Tobin" when calling to receieve all of your discounts. The Southernmost Resorts have four properties with many room types and options for everyone's budget. For rates, please refer to our website under "Hotel." If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us our the reservation line at 1-800-354-4455. Remember the last thing we want to do is to take anyone away from a previous obligation or cause them stress, so if the trip doesn't fit into your schedule or budget we will celebrate our big day with you in our special way after the wedding. We are very blessed to have such wonderful family and friends.

If any of you know me...you know how much I love candy. Yellow and orange are not only my two favortite colors but are my two favorite flavors as well! James and I have decided to have a candy buffet at the wedding! My mouth is already drooling over lemonheads and sunkist jellybellies!
We are booking our rooms this week! Have you booked yours? For hotel discounts and information please visit our website and go to accomadations for our group codes. You'll save 13% off the regular rate. October (due to hurricane season) is a low rate month. The end of the month becomes crazy with fantasy fest madnesss, but the keys are usually quiet during the early parts of the month. This will help us all with travel arrangements and flights. Flights are able to be booked as of now...from LGA to Key West they start at $283 from LGA to Miami $231...Dallas to Key West starts at $419 and Dallas to Miami (3 hr beautiful drive) $298..Pitt to Key West is $359 and Pitt to Miami is $180.
I also found this very useful for those of you willing to wait for a better deal...http://http//web500.us/when-is-the-best-time-to-book-flight-air-tickets/
Here is another site stating the best time to buy is 21 days before your departure to get the best deals ideally in the morning on a Tuesday or Wednesday to get the best deals!
Hope this helps! We completely understand not everyone will be able to make it to the wedding, and look forward to celebrating with you on our next visit or when we come back! We know times are tough, and we completely understand and will still love each and everyone of you :).

Yes...Ladies and some gentlemen, my dress is expected to arrive any minute. I've never looked forward to a delivery as much in my life. This week I have been concentrating on decor a bit and florists. I am still waiting for a quote from the florist I contacted 1 month ago, and I think it's time to give up. I know we will have daisies and yellow and orange splashes, and my ideas are starting to surface. I found this blog and fell in love! We have also decided on a yellow and orange candy buffet! Yay!
