When we were in HS, my then BF would cut out the precious moments square (have no idea what it's called) from the LA Times which said "Love Is ...." He also found the cutest figurines for me. When we started looking for a cake topper, he really wanted a Precious Moments one, and we found it last weekend:
and some variation of Tiffany blue/teal
So one night, FI and I were listening to a song on Kost (sp?). He swore it was by Frank Sinatra and that he knew the name. The idea of the song was about a couple who had split up but now they are back together and the song is about them being back together. This is really vague but the song was sooo beautiful and we talked about it being our first song. Of course now, neither one of us can remember what the song was. I will keep searching, though. My first stop will be pandora and youtube.
I have been dying my hair for god knows how long and most recently it's red (when we met it was red). For the wedding, I am thinking of 1) dying it a chocolate brown; 2) growing it out; and 3) getting extensions. Some of my inspirations for the hair are:
(this one is my least favorite)
First time we met: 1997, I was on a date with someone else and could not even remember having met him (he remembers me and my bushy, busy brows).
Second time we met: 1999 at an JROTC camp. We were from different schools but stuck together for the camp. Both had the same impression of each other: arrogant and annoying---that apparently a true love makes ;-) Spent the next week picking on each other; picking turned to liking; and liking turned to more.
We have dated on and off for a looong time. College, grad school, and other relationships (my first husband, his two kids) got in the way. Blah, blah, blah--won't bore anyone with the details. The bottom line is that 11 years after we started dating, we finally decided that it's meant to be once and for ever :-D
I am sooooooo excited about planning this wedding and making it perfect. Since we have to pay for it ourselves, though, I am looking for great DIY ideas :-D Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!
