                1)I was afraid that I wouldn't find a dress that was flattering and I would look like a fat cow 2) I was afraid he would have more friends/family than me (I'm kinda a loner and he's very social) and people would think he was marrying a wierdo and 3) he's catholic and my family is southern fundamentalist christian (i.e. I would have to have a dry reception, which would NOT work well)

                Don't know, it isn't done yet, but probably not. I was very hung up on not having people look at me in the dress because I thought I would look awful. Once I found THE dress, I became sad that not everyone would see me in the dress.

                Yes, two cats. Holly and Wally

                nobody, if there's one thing I've learned is that sex is meaningless and not fulfilling unless you can let go, and I'd probably be way too self conscious to let go.

                Scorpio, yes it does, but my Libra FI is balancing me out

                46. What did you do with all your time PRE-BDW?
                home decor, deciding between 100 shades of gray paint

                47. If you could choose the gender of your future children would you?
                Nope. I believe life works out to give you wonderful suprises, even ones you didn't know you wanted or needed

                48. If you could change one thing about your wedding what would it be?
                will tell you when it's all said and done

                49. What do you prefer on your FI/DH?
                anything that doesn't make him look like he's still in college, which is more difficult than it sounds

                50. What was the last meal you had?
                3 mousketeers, it's what I eat for lunch. Since I don't like healthy food, I diet by eating a lot less of nonhealthy food.

                51. Did you hint to your FI what you wanted for an engagement ring, or did he choose it on his own?
                I had only one ground rule, no yellow gold. He ended up giving me a family heirloom (thank god it didn't have yellow gold). It's perfect, I couldn't have picked out something so wonderful if I had tried

                52. How did you decide on a wedding date?
                month of January because January in New York made me miserable. We chose the 9th because it's after all the holidays, and we'll feel like we get a whole month off and then the monday after we return will be MLK day, so another day to get back into reality

                53. How are chores divided in your relationship?
                We have a maid that comes weekly, more often than not we let our filth pile up for a week and she takes care of it. I'm really a slothful person

                54. If you were forced to leave your house for good and you were only able to take one personal belonging, what would you take and why?
                a stuffed animal I have had since I was a child, I still sleep with it

                55. Do you wish your FI was an only child?
                He is an only child, so I don't know any other way

                56. If there was one thing in your life you wish you could go back and change, what would it be?
                I would have lost the 160 lbs much earlier or maybe had enough willpower to not be overweight to begin with.

                57. If you could pick one thing to see in the future would you and what?
                yes, my FI and I 25 years from now, just to see if it looks like I picture it

                58. Did you go to college?
                Yes

                59. What’s your favorite music artist?
                not really a huge music person, just listen to whatever's popular at the time

                60. What is the first vacation you remember from childhood and what made it memorable?
                We didn't vacation when I was young, part of the reason I'm determined that FI and I will travel

                61. Is your current hair color your natural hair color?
                um....perhaps? Not sure if I remember what it is, but I'm sure the current color is pretty close

                62. What is your most persistent worry?
                money, having enough to do everything we want when we want to do it

                63. Did your FI/DH ask you or your father first?
                me, but when he called my dad he pretended like he hadn't

                64. If you could pause time for a couple of hours what would you do with the extra time?
                lay in bed with my FI and snuggle

                65. Do you work out? If so, what kind of work-out do you do?
                I used to a lot more, now I go in week or month phases where I do. I always lose the weight I can be eating less before I resort to working out

                65. What is you favorite alcoholic beverage?
                pinot grigio

                66. What does your FI do?

                69. Did you always think you would have a DW?
                I never really thought about my wedding until I met FI and he proposed

                70. If your wedding budget was unlimited, what would you love to add to your wedding? And why?
                I would pay for everyone's room and travel. I would pay for all excursions for everyone.

                New One:
                71. What part of the planning process is giving you the most trouble?
                outfits for the groom and groomsmen!
