Beautiful Blogger Award

Dorothy! I’ve just been speaking to that good looking reporter over there who just got back from Russia, and he told me some very interesting things. It snows there in the summertime, and they don’t have many attractive women – do you realize what that means? When we go to Russia I will have my pick of any man in the country and you can make a snowman in June! -Blanche, The Golden Girls

The poll results are in and wow, it looks like you guys really want to see what we look like. I must admit I’m kind of honored. 🙂 Match said I better pick a good one or you guys are going to be disappointed, hehe. I still won’t be using our real names, so hopefully the anonymity stays intact. I think I’ll wait until the professional wedding photos come out. But…if the engagement photos are good maybe I’ll cave and do the unveiling then. We’ll just have to see. Speaking of the wedding…we set the date! Continue reading Beautiful Blogger Award

Wedding Registries Rock

Mimi: I’m still trying to figure out how to make our wedding registry vital to national security.
Stanley: You’re already planning our wedding registry?
Mimi: Oh, since I was twelve. And I’ve already taken off the list luxury items that we already have such as your Star Wars collectors’ glasses. –Jericho

I’m so excited to finally be able to fill out a wedding registry! Of course we still have to set the date, but when we do…we’re going to have so much fun picking out things for the registry. I just need to tell my practical Virgo side that it’s ok to register for pretty things, like serving platters and a new dinner set, instead of
allergy mattress covers or a vacuum (though I’d be happy with those too!). I love shopping off registries because you know the person you’re giving for actually wants these things. I want to try to avoid getting anything super weird-thanks for the baby maker blanket grandma! That’s not awkward at all…

Birthday Twin and the Wine Party

Marin: “Can you think of a better way to celebrate this new chapter in our relationship?”
Jack: “We, uh, we have chapters?”
Marin: “Mm-hmm. Chapter one, ‘strangers,’ chapter two, ‘sex’… chapter three, ‘friends.'”

Today Couple Wife and I went to Birthday Twin’s wine party. It was their “Spring Release Party” where they had live music, mouth watering tritip and bbq chicken, and of course, their fantastic wine. Couple Wife drove us in her hubby’s car, so when we drove up, BT didn’t recognize me at first. He started signaling where to park, and I waved at him through the window excitedly. His mouth broke out into a huge grin and he pointed us to the front row parking space. As I got out of the car he grinned and said, “Had to give you the VIP parking spot” and grabbed me and gave me a big hug.
It felt like I just saw him yesterday, even though the last time we actually hung out was July, at my fundraiser. He looked cuter than I remembered, his eyes were a brighter blue, maybe because he had a tan. Couple Wife nudged me and said, “He’s cute, love the eyes” and winked at me.

Baby Talk and Mad Gab

Bailey: I’m pregnant, you blind moron.
Chief: You’re what?
Bailey: My heart rate is 110, I’m burning three thousand calories a day, my legs are swollen, I got indigestion and gas. Did you know carrying a boy in your uterus means you burn ten percent more calories than if you had a girl? Guess what I’m carrying. I tried for seven damn years and a month before my fellowship notifications the stick turns blue. Men… from the very beginning they just suck the life right out of you. I’m not leaving. I’m pregnant. –Grey’s Anatomy

Last night Match and I went over to our Couple Friends house to play games. It’s crazy to see how far along Couple Wife is getting in the pregnancy. She looks great-she’s all belly, and in my opinion hasn’t gained anywhere else. If you listened to her though, she thinks she’s as big as a house. Continue reading Baby Talk and Mad Gab
