wedding stuff: biggest boo boo EVER!

so i've been dragging my feet a little when i came to wedding prep for the singers wedding. 

firstly cos it was meant to be only a small do for the extended family so nothing fancy and secondly (and mostly) because i know boss has got my back.

we're having a picture booth and some props and because mum knows how busy we'd be, she has requested we print a life-size picture of us so her friends can take pictures with us. i wasn't super keen because that's just one more thing to do BUT just to make her happy, we did it anyway. haphazardly.. we emailed the printer from melbourne with a coarsely edited half length picture and told them to print it life-size. i even added that "im a regular size girl, about 1.6m tall". rejected all offers to see a mock up cos we were THAT confident...

until we picked it up yesterday afternoon.. our jaw dropped!!!


and to add salt to injury, it could NOT fit into our car so my brother had to drive real slow with the trunk popped. and i had to crawl to the trunk and hold it so it won't fly off. we were such punks and drove so so slowly we backed up traffic a little.. :p the entire time laughing till our cheeks ached.. *sigh* good times..
