Thanks!
I'm glad things are progressing even though we are so far out from our wedding date! I'm trying to get little things done. It looks like the next major hurdle is Xmas. We are spending the holiday with DF's family, so I am sure I will be answering questions and playing TA. No worries, I have my bag of info ready! I'm thinking dress shopping on the 29th-need to confirm with mom. We'll see how that goes!

How in the world have I missed your PJ up until now? It is wonderful! Your story is so sweet and I LOVE that your DF jumped through hoops to fulfill all of your wishes. The planning is so much fun and I can already see that you are creative and kind (love the TY card and the honorary MoH sentiment!), so it will be a lot of fun to follow your planning!

Hi-ya!
DF has definately done his work! Thanks for jumping on...it might be a long ride! Most likely the end of 2010...Kind of wishing it was sooner-but gives me more time to plan...or change my mind
Glad you're enjoying it!

Mini Rant

Ok, So this is probably the first of many mini rants RE: My mother. I'm lucky to have her but sometimes she just doesn't get it.
So, today we are talking about the wedding. Go figure this will be an ongoing conversation for the next 2 years to come. Fine. Somehow we get to talking about having the wedding at home. Um. No.
1. DF wants a small wedding. I'm cool with this. I don't see why I have to entertain a bunch of my parents friends and family that I could really care less about, don't see or don't know. (sounds harsh-but true)
2. This kills me! My mom hits on the whole "You'll get more gifts if you have a home wedding." Why is my mother so obsessed with getting gifts? Is she looking at getting a return on the gifts that she has given over the years? DF and I have lived together for 7 years...7...this means that we have a full apartment full of furniture, all of our kitchen stuff-to the point where we have no room for anything else. We're registering with Disney Honeymoons so that I can have something to register for...but there isn't anything that we need or want so desperately that we need to have someone else buy it for us.

Isn't it the parents that are supposed to be telling the bride and groom that it isn't about getting gifts as much as it is our love for each other? I think my mom is regressing...

Needless to say. I shut that down quickly. Yeah, it bothers me to not have some people there, but (said in Bridezilla voice) I'M SAVING HER MONEY BY HAVING A DFTW, GETTING THE FAIRYTALE I WANT WITH OUT HAVING TO DEAL WITH ALL THE HOOPLA. IT'S OUR DAY. DF WANTS A DFTW TOO...SO BACK OFF WOMAN! Now, if I had had the guts to tell her that in those words, it would have been even a bigger success. Instead, I explained-calmly that I wasn't changing my mind and that I'm happy with the plan and so is DF. She laid off...but if this is going to become a constant trend with her...Do you think the Genie could make her disappear?

Ok I'm done. I feel better now. Thanks

Okay, first of all- Do we have the same mother?!

That's exactly what my mother says to me.. all the time. She doesn't understand why I want to get married at Disney ("no one will come.." "you won't get any gifts" "it's expensive for just champagne and cake!", etc etc).

I know how frustrating it can be. Just know we all go through Mommy issues. I'm sure she just wants you to have the best Wedding EVER. Which you will. Sometimes mom's just don't realize that you're happy just the way you are.

Don't worry.

At least we're in the same boat! If they don't stop...we can make them walk the plank (ARR!) Sorry, I'm having way too much fun with the smileys. She means well...All mothers do. My mom hasn't pulled the "it's expensive for just champagne and cake" yet. Shhh! I'm not going to tell her that one. *yikes*

I'm glad I've got someone that I'll be going through this with-it makes it so much easier to know you're not the only one! Thanks!

Hello!! Can't believe I only just came across your PJ!!

I love finding brides with future dates! (Like me, although I'm yet to find someone later than my April 2011! - touch obsessed I think!)

Your plans sound great, I loooove your ring!!! And I'm very jealous you live in NY!!

Howdy!
I'm glad I'm not the only one with a future date! If you feel obsessed you've come to the right place. I've been "planning" for oh 7 years at least! Now I can finally write about it!

The Latest

Howdy!
With my internship done, no classwork to do, no deadlines, and only working 1 day a week...Leaves me for a ton of time to do nothing! I'm bored! This has never happened before, but it gives me the opportunity to wedding plan, play wii, be on the wii fit once a day (gotta get in dress shape) and cook for DF...Which I don't do much of once school starts.

Xmas is in a couple of days. Every year DF and I get a xmas bulb for the tree. This started when we got our first tree and needed to get ornaments-that was an expensive year! DF didn't want ANY xmas bulbs and I insisted on just one-at least. So, each year we've gotten a bulb from Hallmark. It's become tradition. The years that we don't get a Hallmark bulb we get a mouse ears one from WDW and have it painted and mailed home-Nothing like getting pixie dust when you get back from your trip! There is one stipulation to this. The year we get married, each child's first Xmas-gets an ornament commemorating that year. So, this year, instead of getting a bulb, I found this...


I fell in and had to have it! The only problem I have is that it doesn't have the date on it. So, I'm in search for a small silver tag to put on it to have something like "Engaged 11/19/2008" Now, if I can only find a tag that doesn't go to a bracelet or cost a ton, we'll be talking business. Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Ok off to sharpen my Wii skills. DF downloaded Super Mario Bros. Figures, he gets me an up to date game system and I want to play the old games!!! He even bought me a Wii Points Card to get them! I'm telling you-that boy doesn't buy me flowers-he buys me electronics...And that's ok-they last longer!

Adorable!!! Unfortunately, I don't have any ideas for a tag.. Could you find someone to personalize it? Maybe right inbetween Mickey and Minnie's legs?

I our Wii! Have fun!

The floor space between their legs is plastic-I'd be afraid it would break with engraving...Good idea tho...I'll have to see what I come up with!

The Wii is great-We just got Super Mario Bros Its like being 13 again!

Just found ur planning journal! Love it thus far! The ornament is so cute. They make paint pens in silver and gold- I bet you could use one to write between their feet!

That just might work too!
I'm going to go to the mall today and see what I can find. At the very least, I'm gonna try Things Remembered.
We'll see if something turns up there-it not I just might be on the hunt for some paint pens.

Subscribing. It's so funny reading your pj because your DF sounds allot like my BF. We are going ring shopping in a few days and have already agreed we want a DFTW (his idea) in March or April of 2010 depending on what's available. I can't wait to hear how everything goes. Congrats!!

YEAH another 2010 bride! Enjoy ring shopping. DF and I did ours over the internet. It seemed the only time we had was a half hour here and a half hour there. At the time that was all our schedules could handle! Enjoy every minute of it!
