We are going to Vegas to get hitch and get our marriage license.
I always wanted a cheesy Elvis's wedding so we booked the Viva Las Vegas Chapel for July 5th @ 7:30pm. You can watch us on their webcam-details are pending....
So now I am in a mission to find "the dress," seeking for a sparkling, red, silver or gold dress. I want big hair similar to Priscilla Beaulieu.
My bridesmaids, friends and groomsmens will be joining us on this crazy trip.
DIY Invitation from Scratch!! I created 3 different covers.
After 4 long wks it's almost done!! Mailing out the invitations this week! WOOT! Pictures will be up :-)
Let me start by saying that the next couple of months will go by very fast as we prepare for our “Big Day”! A new life will begin for my future wife and I…..The story of how I met the most beautiful woman in my life. I am truly blessed!
It all began sometime during August ….. actually it was the beginning of August 04’ to be precise. I was going to Target during my lunch break. What started to be another average lunch became a life changing moment for me.
While I was waiting in line at Target, I happen to notice a very beautiful woman at other line and I couldn’t keep my eyes off her! I was hoping that my line wouldn’t be held up to long before she left the store (my mind was scrambling to figure out a way to introduce myself to her).
Unfortunately she left the store before I had that opportunity…..at the moment I thought I’ve lost her. So when I was done with my transaction with the cashier, I hurried out of the store hoping to spot her amongst the crowd. Then “bam” I spotted her in the parking lot….so I ran a little bit closer behind her (no, I’m not a stocker!) haha. My heart was beating fast, thinking what to say without looking like a total “idiot”. So with a deep breath I began to say “excuse me….excuse me”, she turned around slowly and then…..our eyes met! I begin by saying “sorry to bug you….but I happen to saw you in the store and I think that you’re very attractive!”
At this point, I wasn’t quite sure what her response was going to be (hoping that she wasn’t going to turn around and start laughing or worst…..call security!) haha.
To my delight she acknowledged my presence and said “Thank you”. So after the nervous introduction with her my confidence grew and I proceeded to give her my business card and wrote my cell number on the back. I simply asked her “I would love the opportunity to get to know you better….call me sometime”.
After the exciting moment of trying to get to know her…I told her that it was a pleasure meeting her and we both got in our cars that day and went back to our daily lives and drove off…..I was thinking a loud “man, I hope that I didn’t make a fool out of myself” but even at that moment, I did not regret what I did.
Well, a week had past and I didn’t really think much more about what happen that day at Target. Until, one Friday at work….when I was returning back from lunch, I was checking my emails and came across an email address that I didn’t recognize. To my surprise….guess who? ….tick tock…tick tock….okay, times up…. The girl that I met at Target! Feeling like I just won the lottery, I was jumping up and down…. in mind of course. haha
We exchanged email conversations that day and I asked her if she wanted to have dinner with me that Saturday night……she said “yes”.
Since then, I believe that there’s someone out there for you… if you only look.
Love comes quickly… just when you least expect it. It will be waiting around the corner for you!
FI and I was 80's Glam Rockers!!!
