Midwest Brides Unite!

Recommended Posts

Our office was closed today, but pretty much everyone is salaried and working (except for my lazy-ass boss). I had a huge manuscript submission deadline, so I've been answering stupid repetitive emails all day. Ok, I might be in a bit of a bad mood LOL

 

we got 3.5 feet of snow from 2 PM yesterday to 10 this morning! FI tracked it with a yardstick and took pics every two hours. I grew up in DC and a storm like this would cripple them for weeks. I can't believe we'll be back at work tomorrow! :-(

i don't think it's lame at all we probably should have done that too.  It was not a fun morning having to shovel at that snow.  And now I am all congested and not feeling well :(

They actually closed the bank down yesterday!!  Was so happy!  I had to work a little bit from home since our boss told us on Monday that we could work from home Wednesday.  Once I got the word the bank wasn't opening at all (original annoucment said it would open at noon), I shut the computer down! LOL

oh my goodness I'm glad we didn't get that much snow here, your pictures cracked me up too! 3.5 feet is a crazy amount of snow, even for the midwest. I'm from Neenah, Wisconsin (about 1 1/2 hours north of Milwaukee) and my FI Trever and I are getting married January 2012 in Jamaica!!! We haven't picked the exact date yet but it'll be towards the end of the month. I'm currently having a hell of a time deciding between the Grand Palladium and Iberostar Rose Hall Suites for the wedding. It's sooooo hard to pick a resort, i don't want to make the wrong decision!!!

I'm getting married at the Grand Palladium in June!  Though you will most likely have your resort picked out by then, I will let you know how it goes!

I was kinda thinking the same thing too, that's why it's hard to choose because they are ALL so incredibly nice! I think we're going to have it at Iberostar! Now i just have to decide on a resort for the honeymoon ha! I am very glad i found the forum everyone has been very helpful and has some really awesome ideas!

Hey midwest brides! I'm candice and I live in Milwaukee, wi. My wedding will be on April 29th 2011 at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. My Fi lives in Philly part-time (where I met him) but stays here with me a week or 2 at a time. People often ask me how I got someone to move to WI in the winter.... It's called love!!! Lol!!!
