                  waiting until the last minute to get things done that I do not want to do

                  28. what's your middle name? does it have significance?
                  Laraine - my dad's mother was named Loraine and my mom's mom is named Lorraine so they just changed the spelling

                  He acts like he doesn't hear me sometimes when I am asking him a question and I will get irritated when he doesn't answer - then he will come back a few minutes later with the answer - I don't know, maybe it is a software engineer geek thing - :)

                  31. What’s your favorite movie?
                  I love romantic comedies - too many to name

                  32. Why did you choose a destination wedding?
                  I've been to way too many weddings and they are all so similar. This is not bad, but I just wanted something different - something where all my guests could go on vacation.

                  33. How long were FI and you together when you got engaged?
                  4 years - well minus 7 months - we broke up for a little bit because I needed to "explore" - thank God we are back together

                  34. What person in your life really gets under your skin, and how do you know them?
                  My mom can really get under my skin sometimes with her trying to run my life still at 25 - but I lover her to death and I think it would be weird if she just stopped one day.

                  35. (my question) When and how did you and your FI meet?

                    1. What is your current job, and if you had to switch careers, what would the other career be?

                    I currently work as an Acquisitions Consultant for Samuel Lynne Galleries. I recently also became an Independent Distributor for ForeverGreen. I love both of those jobs, but if I had to switch careers I would love to do something with travel or with brides (actually I'm working on setting something up at our gallery for an Art Registry! That would fulfill my dream =))

                    2: What is your favorite hobby?
                    I love giving presents - shopping for them, wrapping them, making them... the whole works. I think Christmas is on my mind

                    3: What is your favorite holiday, and why?
                    Well I guess I kind of made that obvious in my last question, but in case you're still wondering it is definitely Christmas! I just love the feeling that is in the air around that time. So special, and a whole day to spend exchanging presents and spending time with family - how can life get any better than that!?!

                    4: What is your greatest achievement?
                    Gosh that is a good question... I think when I graduate college next semester that will be my greatest achievement.

                    5: What is your favorite animal... and why?
                    Ollie is my favorite animal! He's our spoiled little Dachshund. Actually he's laying on my lap right now in his little red hoodie making it very difficult to type...

                    6: What is your dream trip?
                    My honeymoon! @ The Royal Plantation in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. I'd also like to travel around Europe and visit Italy and Scotland for sure!

                    7: What is your fav food?
                    Potatoes & Cheese! Sadly, I'm off of dairy because it doesn't agree with me. Boo!

                    8: Who has made the biggest impact in your life?
                    Martin, my Dad and my Grandparents.

                    9: If you were a crayola crayon, what color would you be, and why?
                    Silver because it's fun and I could color on black paper! lol

                    10: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
                    Oh gosh, that's a tough one! I would want to travel all over first to pick out a place. Probably somewhere Spanish-speaking though.

                    11: How many siblings do you have?
                    2 half-sisters through my Mom. They're 12 and 16 years older than me. I'm close to one of them.

                    12: What is your biggest fear?
                    Losing control - I hate Dallas traffic, I'm always panicking driving around in it. I also have a weird fear of falling down the stairs.

                    13: Whats your favorite holiday dish you make for your family?
                    I love to make long-stemmed, big chocolate covered Strawberries at Christmas time!

                    14: Do you have a nickname?
                    Apparently I have one on here - "JL" lol Other than that, not really - other than little names Martin calls me.

                    15: What causes do you support?
                    Animal Rescue Organizations, Orgs. that help Children, the Earth, etc.

                    16: What is your guilty pleasure?
                    Mint Chocolate Martini - lololol

                    17. If you could have one Special Power..What would it be & Why??
                    I think it would be... to be able to feel serene and calm whenever I wanted! (Have a lot of anxiety!)

                    18. How old are you?
                    25

                    19. If you won the lottery (hundreds of millions) what would you do?
                    First, I would donate at least a million to charity. Then I'd buy Martin a badass car, then I'd pay off our house, my Dad's house and help out anyone else in our immediate family who needs it! OH AND I'D GET INSURANCE!!! LOL

                    20. What gadget do you not need, but still want?
                    A tv behind our bathroom mirror (our neighbors have those )

                    21. What is your favorite T.V. show?
                    Lost for sure

                    22. When did you know that FI was "the One?"
                    I think I'm starting to realize that more and more as time passes, and our love has changed from "lust" to different types of "love" and all the struggles in between! But that's kind of a lame, general answer, so I'll also add that when all of my friends and family gave him the thumbs up I knew he was the one!

                    23. What is your favorite item of clothing?
                    Jeans

                    24. How many or do you want children?
                    2

                    25. Have you ever met anyone famous? If so, who?
                    Some famous artists (Peter Max, Alexandra Nechita...), Chuck Berry, and several local celebs.

                    26. If you could be someone else for a day who would it be and why?
                    Hmmm... definitely someone I really respect to see how they handle things that come their way. Not sure exactly who though. Probably just an "average" person.

                    27. was your worst bad habit?
                    Lately? Laying around in my PJs past noon!!!

                    28. what's your middle name? does it have significance?
                    Lynne - it most definitely has significance. Lynne was my mother's name, and I will also pass it on if I ever have a daughter (it will be her middle name too). Also, my Dad just opened a gallery and it's named Samuel Lynne; the Lynne being after me! :)

                    29. What's the craziest thing you've ever done?
                    Oh lord... we're not *that* close! HAHAHAHA

                    30. What is the one thing that your significant does that drives you CRAZY?
                    He forgets things like CRAZY! Seriously, I can tell him something and TWO MINUTES later he will ask about what I just told him.

                    31. What’s your favorite movie?
                    That's a tough one. I loved Devil's Advocate and Across the Universe.

                    32. Why did you choose a destination wedding?
                    I think I always knew I was a little "different" in that department. I never wanted a local wedding in a church. Even if I'd done it local, it probably would be at the Arboretum or some other visually stimulating place. I took Martin to Mexico a few years ago and he absolutely loved it! Mexico holds a special place in my heart. We were engaged there June '07. We knew before then - that was actually during our site visit! LOL Plus, when else will you have this chance to spend several days to a week with your closest family and friends AND celebrate the biggest day of your lives?

                    33. How long were FI and you together when you got engaged?
                    About 2 years I think?

                    34. What person in your life really gets under your skin, and how do you know them?
                    Oh gosh - there are a few. But to save face I'll just say my best friend for being late all of the time (that is annoying!).

                    35. (my question) When and how did you and your FI meet?
                    Kind of a long story - we grew up right down the street from each other, went to the same HS, same college... but never "knew" each other. Then 5 years after HS we met randomly at a bar. Martin said he saw me walking across the street and I was completely lit up and he was mesmerized. He got distracted for a minute and when he turned around I was standing right in front of him. He was so baffled and shy he didn't know what to say, so I said "Hey, I think I know you...". He was so shy though that I thought he was blowing me off. Little did I know! We talked for 4 hours and I swear it was just like a movie - everyone else faded into the background and all I remember was him and a fire burning behind him (we were outside). Eventually I had to go, and we gave each other a "Half-hug" (we joke about that all the time now) and said we'd find each other on Myspace. I was bitten by the love bug, and ran home and found him ASAP! (Stalkerish much?!? LOL) He was slightly taken aback but also really happy. The rest is history...

                    36. Even with all the ups and downs along the way, would you still go through with your DW knowing what you know now?

                    We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

                    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

                      : What is your current job, and if you had to switch careers, what would the other career be?
                      I'm in my Master's program to be a school counselor (graduate in May-yay!), and interning as a counselor in a high school. Because the internship is unpaid, I'm also still working my old job, which is a residential instructor at a boarding school for children with special needs. I love my job(s), but if I had to switch, I think I would be some sort of instructor in an exotic location...SCUBA instructor or skydiving instructor would be awesome!
                      2: What is your favorite hobby?
                      Reading, painting, traveling, shopping
                      3: What is your favorite holiday, and why?
                      Thanksgiving! I love food and I love getting together with my family
                      4: What is your greatest achievement?
                      It will be graduating my graduate program...so close!
                      5: What is your favorite animal... and why?
                      Penguins...not really sure why
                      6: What is your dream trip?
                      Around the world in a hot air balloon
                      7: What is your fav food?
                      spinach or ice cream...it really is a close tie
                      8: Who has made the biggest impact in your life?

                      9: If you were a crayola crayon, what color would you be, and why?
                      Haha, I love this question! I don't know if anyone else remembers when they asked people to name crayons and they were these really cool names...My favorite was always "macaroni and cheese." If I had to choose I would be the one called "mauvelous" and I think I just like the name, although the color is cool too....to this day I still say "mauvelous" instead of marvelous when I use the word :)
                      10: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
                      I would love to live somewhere warm, but being close to my family and friends is more important. So I guess I'll be staying in New England...
                      11: How many siblings do you have?
                      A younger brother...he's about to turn 18
                      12: What is your biggest fear?
                      falling
                      13: What’s your favorite holiday dish you make for your family?
                      kahlua pecan pie
                      14: Do you have a nickname?
                      Rach

                      20. What gadget do you not need, but still want?

                      22. When did you know that FI was "the One?"
                      When he cried in front of me one night...he'd kill me if he knew I was sharing this...
                      23. What is your favorite item of clothing?

                      25. Have you ever met anyone famous? If so, who?
                      I work at a small pizza joint in Litchfield, CT...which attracts a lot of people in the fall for the "leaf season." I've waited on Ben Stiller and his wife, who were excellent tippers (more than their meal cost if I remember) and also the coach of Miami Heat...I'm not into sports so I didn't really care but the guy was a dick.
                      26. If you could be someone else for a day who would it be and why?
                      someone very young...seeing the world for the first time and enjoying every moment of it!
                      27. What is your worst bad habit?
                      Does speeding count?
                      28. What's your middle name? Does it have significance?
                      Hannah...it doesn't really have significance, although my name was almost Hannah Rachel instead
                      29. What's the craziest thing you've ever done?
                      Flew to Paris to see my FI while he was stationed overseas in the army...Paris might not seem crazy, but the fact that it was just for a weekend and I spent more time on the plane than I did with him made it pretty ridiculous...but totally worth it :)
                      30. What is the one thing that your significant does that drives you CRAZY?
                      plays video games
                      31. What’s your favorite movie?
                      Sleeping Beauty
                      32. Why did you choose a destination wedding?
                      I have always wanted to get married on the beach...although I never really expected to be doing it somewhere thousands of miles away. Basically, I really wanted a smaller wedding, with just my closest family and friends. If I had my wedding close to home I would feel obligated to have my extended family there. It's not that I don't enjoy their company, but a wedding is a very special event, that will hold significant meaning for my FI and I...I only want to share it with the people that care about us the MOST...not the family members who I see maybe once a year...I hope that didn't sound too selfish...
                      33. How long were FI and you together when you got engaged?
                      We started dating in November of 2005, and got engaged in February of 2007...so not even a year and a half...but it's even less than that because he was deployed to Germany in February of 2006...so if you want to get technical we were only really "together" for 3 months...crazy huh? It scares me a little when I think of the amount of time, but when you know you know :) reminds me of that song from Serendipity...I think it's called "when you know"
                      34. What person in your life really gets under your skin, and how do you know them?
                      One of my professors in my graduate program...ughhh I can't even think about her...she makes me crazy...
                      35. When and how did you and your FI meet?
                      To put it in a nutshell, we technically met in college
                      (we had one or two classes together but didn't really talk), but we ran into each other at a bar one night and that's where we started talking...I think it began with "you look familiar..." Not the most exciting story...
                      36. Even with all the ups and downs along the way, would you still go through with your DW knowing what you know now?
                      Absolutely! We have been really laid back about the whole process...we're not doing a private reception or anything like that, so I'm probably not as stressed out as most of you DW brides...we're having about 20 people and hopefully it will be a good time :)
                      My question: Do you have any pets?
                      My answer: We have fish because we don't have time for anything else...we will be getting a puppy next summer as a wedding gift to ourselves though...can't wait!
