Hello all! Here I am! Ta-da!
What, you're like, who? It's me, the weddingbee reader who's been avidly following this site for over a year, voraciously reading the daily posts, meticulously combing the archives of all my favorite bees (I know I'm not the only one who has spent a late night or a "work break" clicking "more by Miss/Mrs. ____"!), applied once to be a bee and was REJECTED, tried again, and now I'm here!
Still not helpful? Well let me give some specifics and me and Kevin (the husband to be).
Kevin and I live in a small apartment, with our pug, in NYC. Within a few blocks of our apartment are several delectable bakeries, which is important because I don't think we can function without constant supplies of sugar. It also doesn't hurt that there is a cozy neighborhood wine shop nearby--nothing like a bottle of bubbly stashed in the fridge 24/7. Who's with me on that one?
I like to cook and bake, and we love to have people over for dinner and serve them food on funny paper plates (shaped like skulls or candy corn in October; Barbie princess plates for birthdays) because our "dishwasher" putters out (i.e. Kevin doesn't want to do the dishes). We enjoy horrible tv shows (him: Korean drama series and me: Girls Next Door), and bestow unreasonable amounts of attention on our pug. In short, we are big dorks.
We met over three years ago when a friend set us up on a date, and we got engaged two years later while on vacation. Here's the fam:
Now we're planning a wedding--actually I plan it and then run things by him, which works for us--for about 50-60 guests out in Half Moon Bay, California.
Us in a nutshell. I think it'll be great to host this awesome party for our friends and family, and I totally look forward to sharing my experiences with all of you along the way!
