Arshtat determined

Two full working weeks left freakout checklist!

I'm getting there, but everytime I cross somthing off on my list, it seems like I'm adding somthing else. I NEED to go out and get more of that gold ribbon for the inside panel. I might just go with a patterned gold trim if I find somthing thin and detailed that I like.
I forgot to go to the optometrist's last week, so I think it's too late to order new colored lenses. I don't know that they'll get here in time. Maybe I'll call and ask and go see them this afternoon. Here's the rest of the list, though. I hope I'm not forgetting anything :O

Iced green tea lemonade

It's "new" drink I've fixated on. I got it by accident when someone messed up my order two weeks ago, but now I'm hooked. I thought.. the only way this could be better is if it had a hint of mint. So, I asked them to dump some mint in there for me today.
