    Any other young brides?

    My husband and I just recently tied the knot. He was 23, and I'm 21. Everybody said that we were too young, but it happens at different times for everybody! Just ignore it, they don't know your personal situation!

    BDW Cabo trip May/June 2010

    Sad day, this sounds like so much fun, but we just paid off our trip to Punta Cana in October, and DH put his foot down and said no to 2 trips within 4 months.

    Hey there CWS fans...

    Hey ladies, thought I'd check and see if there were any other College World Series fans on here. This year is the last year that Omaha will be hosting the world series at Rosenblatte. They're demolishing it after the final game! Anyways, I have access to some super cheap tickets to the world series, just wanted to see if anybody was up for making the trek to Omaha to go to a few games and have a few drinks!

    Any Chicago area 2010 brides out there?

    Hey ladies, So, DH and I finally rebooked our honeymoon, and we'll be flying out of Chicago O'Hare on 10/5. We're going to be in IL for a wedding the weekend prior anyway, so it just made more sense to fly from Chicago rather than drive back to Omaha, and then fly in, only to have an overnight layover in O'Hare anyways. Moving on....sorry for the tangent of unnecessary info. I will be in Chicago from the 3-5, at a hotel in my hotel chain, and I won't know anybody or have the slightest idea of how to entertain myself for 36 hours. I know it's way, way early, but is anybody up for some drinks? Yes, no? We've threatened to get together a few times on this thread, and I'm thinking it's time we actually went out and had some fun!

    Calling all *Curvacious* women!!

    I know! I was sooo peeved at him. Luckily my photog suprised me earlier today with another disc of photos that had been "misplaced". WOOO HOOO!!! I have crown free and coat free photos. I heart my photographer, as he is some kind of special miracle worker. Apparently after I got back on the trolley he whipped the troops into shape and got some good pics of them, which makes me so happy. Anyways ladies, I'm starting to get busy here in the office, so I guess I should actually get some work done....or at least effectively look like I am doing so.

    Calling all *Curvacious* women!!

    The whole group....yes, the hiddeous burger king crown made it into ALL of our photos, even the pro ones. Could've killed Lee for that one. Cake time....right before getting it all over my hair. The women of our wedding party....such pretty prett girls! Not really sure why, but this professional photo just makes me sad....it was so cold, nobody would part with their coats, so our photos aren't as pretty as I'd have liked. And oh heck yes, best for last. You all have photos on the beach and in the sunshine, but how many of you have photos directly after a blizzard. That's waht I thought. You know you're jealous .

    Calling all *Curvacious* women!!

    Woo hoo! I am (finally) posting my wedding photos. It only took a month and a half to get everything together! Anyways, a few that I've had time to photobucket for your viewing pleasure...(my face looks HUGE in these,but they're still pretty cute) My momma trying to finish getting me ready as I was counting down the minutes and getting VERY nervous. My poor MOH trying to mellow me out.. My half of the wedding party....There were 22 of us!

    Starting a Wedding Planning business...crazy?

    I'm doing it! I've never been so passionate about anything I've done, and it's been really rewarding thus far. I'm still staying in school for Psych, but depending upon how this next year shapes up I may forgo the entire Grad school idea so that I can get this up and running. Still thankful for DH's salary, otherwise we'd be living on macaroni and cheese, but he's been really supportive. Woo hoo! The brides I have right now are wonderful, and if I do these weddings well, we have a friend of the family who may hire me for her $80,000 wedding. YAY!!! As for your question, I did not go to Notre Dame. I'm a Creightonian all the way.....Go JBlue ays!

    The Person Below Me- Game!!!

    1. I'm not much of a kid person. If you could switch places with anyone for a day, who would you choose?
  10. So I've been thinking a great deal about what to do with the remainder of my life....I had always figured grad school would be the next step for me. Idk though, after singlehandedly planning my own wedding, and then taking on the wedding of a friend of mine, a former soririty sister and my cousin and his fiance I think I've decided that this is something I have a passion for. I've picked up on how to negotiate with vendors, and how to weed out the good ones from the bad, as well as planning 4 weddings that were on very, VERY different budgets. I've been thinking about starting a small business and getting into the wedding industry. I'm just not sure if this is a wise business decision. I mean, I live in Omaha, so it isn't like there's a huge market for this, but DH is looking into transferring to Chicago for work. Just wondering if anybody else has any experience in this field, and if this is an idea that could actually come to fruition without me having to live on ramen noodles in a studio apartment. Any thoughts?

    Needed

    My husband and I did this for part of our wedding party gifts. I don't remember the name of the company off the top of my head, but when I get home from work at 11 I'll ask FI (or better yet, I'll just check who the money was sent to from our bank statement) and post it on here for you! I think we spent $2.25 per glass....maybe $3 with the engraving and stuff. Anyways, I'll get back to you ASAP, just wanted you to know I probably have a solution for you!

    Calling all *Curvacious* women!!

    Hello my lovelies! It's been a while..I've been getting busy with grad school applications and whatnot, so it seems like forever since I've touched base with anybody! Forgive me, I'm about to hijack the thread for a minute. I AM SOOOO FRUSTRATED! Andy and I have been married for almost a month, and we are yet ot get our photos back from our photographer. WTF, is it that hard to drop off the disks to me? Christ, mail them if it's that big of an issue. I'm getting ansy and oh so sick of waiting. On an unrelated topic, I know that I'm supposed to post this is the starfish passing thread, but if I'm going to do this, I want it to go to one of you ladies. I have a beautiful topaz colored starfish bouquet charm who I've taken to calling Philbert. He was my little piece of DW when we were married last month, and I'd love for him to actually get to go on a trip and be somebody's something borrowed. I'll send a journal with him, the only thing I ask is that you send him back when you're done with him, as my mother will be using him in her vowel renewal this fall. If you're interested, just email me! Anyways, I hope all is well with you ladies!

    The Person Below Me- Game!!!

    Hahaha....well since they loaded our food with MSG and I had a God awful allergic reaction at my wedding, I think is I had it to do over I'd take the rain. If you could relocate to anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

    What's your new name?

    "Chesty Nightthighs-Heavenshock" wow....I knew I shouldn't have kept my maiden name and hyphenated. That's a bit of a mouthful.
