I'm back

It feels good to be back. After a loooonnnggg break from the preps, due to our ISO audit, here i am again. I miss blogging, bloghopping, surfing, chatting and of course the preparations... Anyway, we only have 7 days left before the big day and we still have a lot to do. (See my june 1 post). I wish Paul and I can finish everything at least by thursday to have time to rest by friday to look refreshed on our big day.
My parents arrived last thursday and I was happy to see them again. My family is complete again. Paul will be arriving by 10am today. I'll be picking him up at the airport (at least now I have someone to help me with the preparations.) After he arrives we will meet our coordinator and my designer. I still need to buy my bridal shoes so that my designer can put beads on it. I fit my gown last thursday and holla!!! I gained weight!!! (so stupid of me!!! sarap kumain eh!) They need to adjust half inch on both sides so that my gown will look ok. I need to visit them later to fit again. haayyy... I hope it fits me well this time.
That's about it for now... I still need to prepare some documents for our meeting with the coordinator later. Please pray for our preparations and for the big day!

It's just really difficult now coz the wedding is getting close and I can't go hands on now with the preparations because of my work. Our ISO surveillance audit is on June 8 and I'm the one handling it kaya I can't focus on the preps now.

I know prayers can do wonders, with God's grace, everything will turn out the way we wanted it (both in the audit and during the big day!)
