Being Girly

First of all, I have to say that Fuzzy is the most amazing person in the planet and I am more in love with him every single day and I now I know what all the fuss about love and romance is about and I want to spend every day with him for the rest of my life. And he is perfect. And so so handsome. And cute. And funny. And sweet. And generous. And caring. And loving. And wonderful. And I love him. And I think that marrying him is the best decision that I have ever made.


There is nothing like getting engaged to make you feel totally girly. Like really girly. I'm not normally one to squeal over rainbows and pink shiny things and kittens (ok, kittens), but I feel like that is all I have been doing since we made our engagement public. And while we are going to have a fairly laidback and un-fancy wedding, you better believe that I am going to make a fuss. The dress I found is to-die-for gorgeous, and once I saw it, I knew that it was the one for me. I don't want to say too much about it, since the dress is supposed to be a mystery or something, but lets just say that I am waiting for the approval of that store's credit card so I can do some shopping. And it is only $325. SCORE!

And can I just talk about this ring? I know Fuzzy has talked about it, but I must echo him and say that it is the Most Beautiful Thing In The World. I just stare at it all day. And the fact that it is a family heirloom that the Gerdes-es (Gerdes's? Gerdeses?) wanted me to have makes me feel all the more welcome into the family. It was so unexpected and it makes me so happy.

The real challenge in planning this wedding will be that Fuzzy and I would probably both much prefer to sit on the couch and watch tv or play video games than do any real work...but I'm sure that because it is work this exciting, we'll be just fine.

Thanks to all for your excitement, happiness, and well-wishes!


Hey, if you want to outsource the couch-potatoing, tving, and video-gaming so you can get more done on the wedding, just let me know - I may have an opening!
