November 16.
So, I went to bed at 4am today, and got up at 10 because I still had a ton to do...which included running some more errands...

Okay, so today I had to finish the fortune cookie boxes, finish all the fortunes to put in the fortune cookies, and make the cookies themselves....50 of them...

AND you can only make like 3 or 4 at a time because they harden quickly...so you don't even want to know how long I was at the stove and how many batches I had to whip up during the day.....I'll spare you the gruesome details...haha!

So, on top of that, I still had to add music to the slideshow, which I thought would only take me an hour. So, I started around 11pm, and I didn't get to bed until 3:30, and I had to get up at 5:30 to meet at the restaurant by 7.....GRR...another LONG night!

Just ask Cassie, I was about at my witts end! HAHA

KerBear I wasn't even looking at the dates so I hadn't caught on that all of this had already gone down! Looking forward to seeing all the photos and hearing about the big day!

aurian Wow! How very cool... I've never made my own fortune cookies, but this is inspiring me to think about my own Christmas gifts! :)

LeahMarie25 Hmm... it sounds like a lot of work. Not sure if I'm really up to making those myself now. Might be a good Valentine's Day idea, though, with some naughty fortunes. Ha!
