Lately, it seems like all my friends are getting married. We just went to one wedding, and we have three more in the next year! Now, I am very excited to announce that Ira and I are jumping on the band wagon and gettin hitched too! We're planning for Memorial Day weekend of '09.
It is so weird. I am excited to get married, but am feeling a little uncomfortable with the terminology. I just can't refer to Ira as my Fiance. Instead I have elevated his status by calling him my "manfriend" instead of "boyfriend". Likewise, I feel weirded out about referring to myself as a bride. We got engaged weeks ago, but I haven't announced it here yet because I wasn't sure if it was fitting or not. I don't want to turn into the typical bride who can only talk about dates, venues, flowers, and other details. Ira and I do plan on doing as much as we can for ourselves and so I want to document anything we do "from scratch" that might be fitting with my blog topic. Keeping that in mind, I am making a promise NOT to become a Bridezilla and have my blog taken over with wedding updates instead of food.
But OMG, let me tell you about some fabrics I am thinking about for my dress....Just kidding.
