Recommended Posts

I couldnt vote. I have a 4'0" 6 year old who had to press the democratic button for his BOY Barack Obama. Amir had the honor of voting a few times today with me dad, nana, and pop pop.

If he won Texas I don't think I'd sleep for 3 days. The excitement would be too much!

 

Happy early birthday!!!

I'm a Dallas girl who voted for Obama as well! I live in a mostly gay area so everywhere I look there are Obama signs and supporters. But on my way to work, its all McCain. Feels like a different world...5 miles apart.

I just want Texas to be a closer race...at least get to "lean" rather than automatically marked red :)

I voted Obama. I agree with him on nearly everything- economic, education, the war in Iraq, and basically all social issues. I feel that McCain may have been a good person originally, but he has twisted his beliefs to appeal to a wider conservative base and I wouldn't trust him any more after all of his flip-flopping. I just think Obama will be a more positive leader in the world stage for America.

 

Also- I'm an Obama fan in Aggieland (Texas), and yeah... I wish the votes were going closer. One day I hope Texas will be even leaning slightly towards my type of candidates:) Its nice to know there are other Texans who support Obama!

Ok so I'm watching the coverage on the news. I'm sitting in the office my DH has the tv on in the bedroom. They show a map of the US and of course Alaska and Hawaii are at the bottom. The news lady says I quote "Where are Hawaii and Alaska...oh I see at the bottom...wait is that where they really are?" OMG seriously? I just had to share. Crazy.

Calia - LOL what channel are you watching?? Also, how do you say your name? It looks so pretty! I think I've asked before. Is it Cay-lee-ah, or Cal-ee-ah, or something else?

 

Hello to my fellow Texans! (I'm an Aggie, too!) Hugs!

Thanks Maureen! I'm not big on talking politics, but it's nice to be able to give a little background on my feelings and not worry so much about being blasted by others who don't share my sentiments! Nice thread.

I would quote but I'm too lazy tonight.

 

Great discussion thus far and I'm absolutely THRILLED it stayed on topic and didn't become attacking.

 

Thanks for the libertarian vote- I do like the ideology of the party but I felt my vote would be better put to use for the two big parties. I would like to see more options in the future though and I know I'm definitely not helping that wheel turn but I really like Obama too. We actually had a measure that proposed making it a two party system in our state- which is determined in the primaries. I totally voted a big NO on that one.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
