Eighteen months ago husby and I got married. Up until this point I haven’t written about it or shared the photos with anyone other than a few close family members. Because it was perfect. And I didn’t want anything to tarnish the glowy-ness of the memories of that moment and the days surrounding it. And […]

SE Michigan loves to honk

The wedding was perfect.  There’s so much more to say, but that’s all I got right now. And we left the reception (or party#2 of 3) to find that my brothers (and possibly others? not really sure who all is responsible for this) had done their duties to decorate our getaway car. We left town […]

Seven Things: Excuses

Monday, October 10th, 2011

7. I’m getting married in a week (when it completely slipped your mind that you were supposed to write a seven things blog on the seventh of the month) 6. I’m getting married in a week (when putting off doing the dishes for yet another day) 5. I’m getting married in a week (when you […]

This is what happens when you’re two weeks away from wedding day

You start having wedding related dreams. To be fair, I had my first wedding related dream the night after we actually started planning the wedding.  I don’t remember what it was about.  The first of the “wedding-mares” came back in August, when I dreamt that all the trees had already changed color and were dropping […]

Friday, September 30th, 2011

12. After completing our seating chart I turned to Fiance and said “Do you want to just scrap the whole thing and not have a seating chart?” 13. We have a song as part of our ceremony.  I really hope people sing. 14. We’re going to dance a polka at the reception.  Not as our […]

Five years ago

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Five years ago this week I was saying goodbye to my friends and family in Minnesota.  I saw one last movie with my oldest little brother (Little Miss Sunshine, which bears an uncanny resemblance to parts of my life).  I flew to Boston to say good bye to some college friends and spend one last […]

11. I am so over photo-booths and photo-booth props.

Seven Things: I love about the new apartment

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Fiance and I moved in together about 2 weeks ago.  So far we’ve made it through the move, changing a flat on the side of the freeway, and removing a wine stain from a white carpet since we shacked up.  All without killing each other.  I think we’re in it for the long haul, folks. […]

Our wedding. A list. Part 1

Friday, June 10th, 2011

I’m going to open this post by saying that all of these choices are mine/Fiance’s, and are right for us.  Do whatever is right for you.  And don’t be offended by my opinions, because really? 1. I think cake toppers are a little creepy.  I also think saving your wedding cake for a year is […]
