A Little Update

Chandler: Why would I kiss a girl and then put her on your bed?
Ross: Well, then, who was on my bed?
Monica: Oh! Oh! Oh!
Ross: No! No! No!
Monica: Yes!
Ross: You were under the pile of coats?
Monica: I was the pile of coats! You were my midnight mystery kisser?
Ross: You were my first kiss with Rachel?
Monica: You were my first kiss ever?
Chandler: What did I marry into? –Friends

This week has been pretty boring so far. I think part of that is because all I want to do is go home to my fiance and snuggle. It’s pouring down rain here and it makes me want to curl up with a good movie and burrow into Match’s arms.
Let’s see, what is new with me?

-Fitness: So far I have lost 4 pounds since heading back to the gym. Small victory dance, woot woot! And I didn’t even succumb to the latest diet pill review and take the easy way out. I’ve been cutting back on my portions, eating healthy snacks, and hitting the gym three times a week. My goal is to get there four days this week. So far I’ve managed one, and tonight will be two. I’ve got this!
-Wedding: We sat down with Nice Guy (Match’s close friend from High School) and asked him if he would be our officiant. He had the perfect response. When we asked him, we told him how we couldn’t imagine anyone else marrying us, as he’s so important to us both, and he’s been watching our relationship grow from the beginning. We all got teary eyed and there were hugs all around. It was a great moment and later Match and I talked about how happy we are that he said yes. Asking someone to stand up in front of 100 guests and give a speech can be a daunting task, and he seems completely up to the challenge!

Other wedding news-on Sunday Match and I found what we hope is the Venue. I will post pictures just as soon as we know for sure. I would post them now, but what if we don’t get it, and have to settle for some other place? So I will just say that it has my favorite things. Weeping Willows! I’ve always imagined getting married next to a Willow tree. Match’s Mom is going to check out the place with me this weekend, so we’ll see what she thinks.
We’ve also set a tentative date, and I’ll give you more on that later as well.

The Blog: I want to have a little poll. It’s on the left hand side of my blog if you care to take it. I’ve been toying with the idea of revealing our faces ever since Match and I got engaged. Let me know what you think. 🙂 So what’s new with all of you?



    It is certainly good to snuggle up with someone on a rainy day.

    Glad to read that Nice guy has agreed to be your wedding officiant and may you find the ideal wedding venue.


    I voted “Who Cares” on the vote. I mean, I guess I really do care. But, I also respect your privacy. Are you going to continue with your blog after you become “Mrs. Match”???


    Hi, I’m stopping over from SITS. It’s nice to meet you.

    I took your poll. It is such a tough call. Stopping from SITS!


    I voted for YES I would love to see you guys! Congrats on the weight loss! It sounds like you already accomplished so much.

    I’m looking forward to seeing pics of the venue. So cool that you have a friend officiating. I wish that we knew someone personally that would be able to do that for us. As it stands we’ll have Random Island Officiant. I hope he has a cool accent.

    I absolutely love weeping willows. I bet it will be gorgeous. I had to be the one to vote other on the poll.Congrats on the weight loss! It feels good doesn’t it? But how come it doesn’t come off like it came on?

    Its funny, I was putting together a post and I said “Is there anything more romantic than weeping willows?” I can’t wait to hear more about the wedding plans!

    Snuggling on a rainy day sounds perfect to me. And the friends dialogue cracked me up.
