yup cuz it kills good bugs as well as bad ones...... and take Keflex after you eat something.... if memory serves me correctly (since I suffer from CRS ALOT, this may be iffy) it has been known to cause upset stomachs and yeasty-beasty attacks
Yeah, I'm worried about a yeast flare-up. Should've said something. But if my issue is bacterial overgrowth (for the constipation), maybe it would help?
I have had a lot of nose bleeds and this winter I ended up at the ENT. Fold me for dry nasal passages, in between neti pot usage, use nasal saline mist several times per day. It has made a world of difference. Plus I got a humidifyer, which hopefully helps, but I don't notice as much of a difference as with the nasal mist.
Good luck with the tootsies!
I definitely need a humidifier. I've left water out overnight before and it vanishes! I don't know that water left near the radiators would be enough, given how dry it gets around here in the cold. Just being stubborn about the expense, since I can manage, and there are a lot of other things that require my money right now.
First thing Liz said when I exclaimed to her, "Where do you even start in planning a wedding?!" was "Set the budget, find a venue, set a date, pick a theme." Haaahh. We are totally on our own for this. Budget is mostly up to what my parents can contribute (I really can't predict how much money we'll be able to save in 18 mos), can't set a date until we know the budget (how many people we can afford to invite), our venue is my grandma's property (which doesn't allow for a back-up plan in case of rain), and we are definitely not doing a theme, unless friends, family, booze, and love are themes.

Actually, that is my favorite theme.
Edit to add actual stuff...
Is there a chance your parents can give you a clue how much they can chip in? Also, do you have a plan on how much you can set aside? This will give you a base budget. Then subtract what you have to have - a venue, presumably food of some kind, some kind of clothes to wear, etc. What is left allows you to get the things you want.
I'd suggest saving money on the following (ie. don't spend a lot) -
1. flowers. They die and frankly no one remembers them. The one exception to this is perhaps the bride's bouquet. For flower girl(s) if you have one, try to see if you can get discarded petals from florists - ones they would throw away. You are just throwing them on the floor anyway.
2. The dress - sure you want to look nice. That said you can look nice without spending $800. Do you need lace, ruffles, and frills? Chances are if you said yes you will end up looking like Honey Boo Boo or someone going to their Quincenera. Perhaps a thrift store for a kick ass vintage gown or Craig's list.
3. The booze - open bar? Not if your friends drink like mine. F' that noise.
4. Food - if you have any culinary schools in the area you may want to check with them. Our community college has a culinary club. We cater weddings and such at far lower rates (and often better food) than caterers in the area.
Anyway, just some ideas. With all that goes into planning a wedding, worrying about being broke afterwards sucks.
I hate to tell you this... but you are getting a themed ring bearers pillow/box.
Love is the theme. Sort of. Yes.
I demand that you honor my gift! :p
Love is a great theme for a wedding. It makes the world go round and everyone's heart swoon. Friends, family and booze are just added bonuses.
Since I'm planning a vow renewal, I've been looking at bridal dresses and not wedding gowns. I don't like the traditional frilly meringue looks that you see now. If you look on Nordstrom's website, they have some nice shorter dresses that are on average between $150-$350. Worth looking into if you want to go that way as well.
I rented my dress... I don't regret that at all.
