Well, after meeting with Susan last night, I think we’ve got our woman. I mentioned her before – and she’s definitely a perfect fit for us. we pretty much will get to hand craft our ceremony. And she’s a bargain compared to some of the other officiants – sold! Aside from that – we also decided to go with Instant Request as our DJs. everything seems to be falling in place for the big details! Tomorrow morning – our first cake tasting. We’ll see how that goes as well. I’m not in as big of a rush for that, but it should be interesting. I hope I can get hungry for cake at 9am.

20 minutes of terror.

Okay – I have to let you all in on my 20 minutes of terror this morning.

I get up, get in the shower, and within like, 2 minutes of showering realize my engagement ring is not on my finger. I check my other hand for rings (wondering if I had for some reason taken them all off before going to bed) – but they were all there. Engagement ring = missing. My plan of having enough time to shave my legs is thrown out the window – did I even condition my hair? Who knows.

I rush out of the shower and check the possible spots I would have left it and it’s not there. It’s slowly occurring to me that I TOOK IT OFF IN MY SLEEP!!! WHAT?! Then I start crying and flash back on the gorgeous star sapphire ring my parents gave me on my 16th birthday and how I managed to lose that within 2 weeks of getting it. Lo and behold, after 20 minutes of tearing all the bedding off and ransacking the house, the fiance picked up a throw rug in our bedroom and it rolled off.

Uh, yeah. So – I TOOK MY RING OFF IN MY SLEEP. Please, please tell me someone else has done this before. I may need to glue this thing on.

Ceremonies and Beer

This is far too entertaining not to share with everyone. I’ve been emailing back and forth with a woman about officiating our ceremony. I found her online at When I asked her about when we could schedule a meeting, the Reverend suggested we meet at a place in NE Minneapolis called Gasthof’s. For those not familiar…this tends to be a rowdy German bar/restaurant. In the words of the fiance, this is handy – we can “Have a beer, snuff shot and book our minister.” Should I be concerned? Or elated? I’m not sure – I’m leaning towards elated. :) Anyway, we’ll see what happens next Thursday night when we meet her there. :) Tonight – 7pm – meeting with potential DJ. This should be interesting!

Metal Mouth

Well, I just got back from getting my top teeth covered with braces. Yep, I’m a brace face again. Not so much metal mouth as these are technically “clear braces”. I dunno…I can see them. All in the pursuit of straight teeth (again) for the wedding…and forever. Everything went fine – I only gagged once when they did the impressions. Hats off to the technician at Dr. Colby’s office, Jen. She was super nice and I didn’t vomit from having clay in my mouth. High Five!
