only 51 days left !!!!!

People have been asking if I am stressed out...and I am not surprisingly. People have also been asking what is left to do and what we could use help with.

So here is the list of things I still need to do:

Get the dress altered (Rachel thinks she has someone)
Find the broach for the dress
Find the amazing hairpiece or cute little black hat with little black veil
Find more money LOL
Figure out how and where to get my hair done
Figure out how and where to get my nails and makeup done
Meet with Raya about the food
Do up a list of photographs for Kirsten
Find out how and where to get all my underclothes, before I do the dress
Figure out what to do now regarding the honeymoon
Start packing up the house!
Find someone with a pick up that will help us do a dump/recycling run so we can pack up the house and have a place to put boxes!
Kiss my honey!
Get the ball rolling on counselling!

Chris is working on the ring, the suit, the pastor and the marriage licence!

We are really excited about moving into the new house…we are saving our pennies for storage items (ie a cabinet in the bathroom, or closet system), backyard items (ie we want to get a bbq, a pool, some backyard furniture) , covers for our little couches, a new entertainment stand and the piece la resistance….we would like one of those amazing ottomans that has a cushion on one side and a tray on the other, so it can also double as our coffee table!

We are really looking forward to slowly building these things together as we build our life together and look forward to our own family.

We thank each and every one of you for support us and we are sorry if we haven’t be able to invite everyone to the wedding. We will be hosting a party to celebrate Tanya and Andre’s new purchase, our housewarming and our wedding and any other celebrations people want to tack on! Have a birthday this summer…bring a cake and some friends….have an anniversary this summer…come on over and bring some champagne!

Seriously doesn’t that sound like fun!?

Continued adventures in dating.....

Good Morning readers!

All three of you!

I know you are chomping at the bit to hear all about my wild and crazy adventures in babysitting uh online dating.

Well for the most part it seems to be a wash out.   I will talk with some interesting guys and it seems good and then POOOOFF...they are gone.   I suspect its because i don't jump on the hey come F^&* me train fast enough?   Either that or my busy schedule doesn't work for them.   For the most part thought its just dudes looking for nookie!

Don't get me wrong, it hasn't all been bad, I have talked to some really nice guys but so far it hasn't turned in to much.   But let me tell you about one experience I had last night.

I have seen this guys profile on a couple of different sites - he uses the same three lame pictures which were taken one right after the other and then describes how amazing he is in the context of the stuff he has and what he has accomplished.  He is kind of cute.. i guess...in a bit of a we…

A Waste of Good Underwear....

Or alternatively…How I got stood up Once, Uh twice, WAIT Three times in one week!
Well....
To say that this week has been disappointing is an understatement.   I have to say about midweek last week I was feeling pretty on top of the pile.   I had dates lined up all the way until Thursday of the next week with some nice gentleman,I had dropped some more weightI had worn an old amazing pair of jeans and looked good!!I had nailed some tricky harmoniesI was learning 2 languages at the same time!I had made a new group of friends in Rome online (yes mom I am being safe and there are girls!), one of whom is a single, gorgeous Italian guy who wants to take me for Aperativo     and a night walk through some of the fountains in Rome! So you know feeling pretty good!

Then Sunday came….I was supposed to go for Coffee with  uhm lets call him Dutch we have been talking for a few months now.  I was actually surprised he got the nerve up to actually ask to meet.     I was supposed to be in Surrey but…

This week in online dating - you are Amazed by Me....

Or..alternatively - How does this chick get all these guys??

I think sometimes people are a bit amazed when they see me and see that I don’t really have a problem getting dates.  Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a post about me bashing myself so get off your soap boxes; but I think we have this media culture that tells us

FAT IS BAD!  NO ONE LIKES FAT!  FAT IS UGLY!! IF YOU ARE FAT YOU WILL BE SINGLE FOREVER!
NO ONE WILL WANT TO GET WITH YOU!



 I am going to have to call bullshit!
I will admit, if I a guy is super-hot, I generally don’t email or wink at him first.   I automatically assume that they will not be interested in me.   It always boggles my mind when a total hottie messages me and tells me how beautiful I am.   I regret to say I often ask them if they have seen all my pictures and know that I am a bigger more fluffy girl.   99.8% of the time the reply I get back is:
OH YES….I love a girl with gorgeous curves like yours.
I have to be honest; I get about 3 times as many messages as I te…
