Gah, the things we do to look good, lol!
Oooo a liver cleanse is a nasty thing. It basically flushes everything out, gall stones, liver stones, fatty deposits and waste.

I haven't done one yet, I did some research in my desparation to look good showing my bare stomach and started taking pills to do a parasite cleanse which you do first. The pills are natural supplements (fig powder actually) which kills off parasites. That I just take on an empty stomach every day and I can feel a slight difference, nothing to be nervous about. The liver cleanse on the other hand is olive oil, grapefuit juice and epsom salt. Yikes right? So you do this for 24 hours and go through it, it's not eay or fun or comfortable but my friend did it before her wedding and dropped 10lbs. You're also supposed to follow it up with 1 - 3 colonics.

Sorry girls if this is TMI... I am having trouble even thinking of attempting this, trust me.

On the up side, she said that she's never felt healthier and cleaner and slept better in her life. So I figured what the heck... I am going to attempt it. If anyone wants me to send the instructions for the liver cleanse or doesn't want to continue this convo here, just email me johnnygirl777@yahoo.com :)

The olympic torch just went by my work... so strange lol.
wow. I find this all fascinating!! 'ring me' is such a normal thing for anyone in the UK - I wouldn't even have thought that would sound weird to anyone!!!

'cute' is another American thing! and 'y'all'! if I'm not careful, with all the time I spend reading all your posts, I'm going to end up sounding like you all!! haha

I shrugged it off and woke up the next morning to a text from him (he already had my number somehow) I got the job and we were dating two weeks later officially. 2 weeks into our relationship he asked me to move out with him and I accepted, then a few weeks after that he told me he loved me. So we've been living together for over 5 years and together 5 1/2 years now. Live and work together... we're best friends though so it works :)

No you're not being thick! Maybe it's not an international game yet :) It's a party where everyone wraps a gift of a certain amount ($20 for our party) and you don't mark who it's from so it's annoymous. Then after some drinks and fun we all count how many of us there were (23) and we put numbers 1 - 23 in a hat, pick numbers and that's the order you go in. Number 1 goes and picks a gift and it's normally something silly or terrible and then number 2 either can steal the gift or pick a new gift. A gift can only be stolen 3 times before it can't be stolen anymore. Once you get a gift stolen from you, you must pick and open a new gift from the pile. It's a lot of fun but FI ended up with a tacky heart shaped necklace he prompted put on and sported all night wink.gif
well it doesn't sound like moving fast was a bad move!! what a lovely story :o)

I was the opposite!! me and my FI started 'seeing each other (you guys probably call that dating lol) in Dec 06, had THE best month ever, and then he got cold feet. turned out he'd been in a long term relationship and got very badly hurt and he didn't know what he wanted or what he could handle. we stayed talking for a month and then he ended up calling me some pretty nasty things one night and I stopped talking to him for about 4 months. we ended up running into each other on a night out organised by a mutual friend and things started up again after he had some time to miss me....and here we are!

took nearly 10 months for us to get together 'officially' but things are so great between us. both having come from long term relationships before, we were both upfront with our downfalls as well as better off for a lot of lessons learned. we have a VERY honest relationship are careful not to take each other for granted.

ah man, that's made me miss him loads!! I can't wait to marry him :)

Aww Katies that's cute! Sometimes people get so burned by previous relationships they just get scared or nervous, I am so the same way, so was FI. Good strong relationships just take trust and that takes time so I think you did it the right way for sure :)

That sounds similar to Ryan and I as well. We started seeing each other VERY casually for about 6 months. Then, we went on a trip together (I was sooo nervous...we had never spent that much time together!). AND we fell in love, and I moved in 4 months later! Then, we were engaged 5 months after that. YAY!!!

I dont understand some that try 1 dress on and know it's the one. I tried about 80, my mom was about to strangle me because I dragged her out of the house almost every sunday for 6 months. But I am absolutley in love with my dress, so it was all worth it.
See! That's what I am talking about! haha Yes, you gotta count them all out, just to make sure. wink.gif

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
