My Mommy’s Dress April 6, 2008

Like me, my mom has some body issues and kept putting off the search for her dress until the last moment. I’m so glad I convinced her to look for a dress and I’m even more glad she found one that she loved.

Unfortunately, the first she really liked was a discontinued style. Cool neckline, though:

After several more tries, this was the winner. We ordered it in a light green. Hurray, Mommy!


Catching up…

Admissions of a Blogophobic Groom… March 4, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — superhugguh @ 10:43 pm

Everybody, i.e. all of this blog’s faithful readers, must have been wondering why the Groom to be has been incognito. Connie is not a modern day Walter Mitty/Billy Liar. I do exist, as some of you can actually attest to meeting me. There are a few reasons that I’ve been an absentee bloglord…

1. I’m not too confident in my writing skills.

2. I’m a ridiculously private person who often has difficulty talking to people I see on a day to day basis. Ask Connie.

3. I don’t want to write anything that might jeopardize my standing as a great boyfriend. Connie might read one of these and realize she’s actually marrying an utter buffoon.

4. I’m trying to minimize the amount of non-job search related stuff that I do online. I’m a goldfish when it comes to being easily distracted. Damn you internets!!!

Anyway, I’m here now and my presence will be a lot more visible. I hope we can bring a smile to your faces as you peer in on us ambling madly toward wedded bliss.


Happy Valentine’s Day!!! February 14, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — lemontangos @ 8:26 am

Josh and I agreed not to spend any money on Valentine’s Day this year since we are already making the ultimate gesture of love in August. A pricey one, I might add.

When I came into work this morning three totally awesome Doctor Who valentines were on my desk from the completely thoughtful and wonderful Ellen. My favorite said that I was “Dalek-table.”

I really wish I took the time to make special valentines this year. Of course, part of the problem is that my bank account has about $11.82 in it right now and we don’t get paid until tomorrow. D’oh!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. Next year you’ll be receiving fancy gocco’d V-Day cards!


A Kleinfeld blowout sample sale? February 2, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — lemontangos @ 10:33 pm

Ooh.  Ooh ooh.  Ooh ooh ooh!  Up to 70% off on gowns and accessories?  Ok, so I’m not going to freak out and wish that I waited to buy my dress because 1) A “sample” sale means that they’re selling the samples that brides try on.  2) THE DRESS I tried on, loved, and bought fit, but it wasn’t perfect.  3) I’d rather have a virgin dress that no one else has had their paws on and is a perfect fit.

I still need shoes, a headpiece, and a purse.  Perhaps I’ll skip out of work early and make a trip!


Why are my images disappearing?

Filed under: Uncategorized — lemontangos @ 8:44 pm

Ok, so I just noticed that the photos I’ve been putting on the blog so far are disappearing.  They’re there one day, and then gone the next.  #$%^&#$%!!!!  Alright, please forgive the technical difficulties, the photos are coming back, even if I have to hold them up myself!


Hello internets January 26, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — lemontangos @ 4:44 am

Reasons for the long silence:

  • Had I known that my laptop was on its last gasp, I would have signed a DNR for the poor thing and at least prevented its Terry Schiavo-like death at the hands of Geek Squad.  I basically had no computer for 4 months.  Oh well, I’m now typing on a schmancy new MacBook Pro!
  • Did I mention I got promoted in August?  Yeah, totally exciting, until the moment that I realized working for three editors means a shit load of shit to do.
  • A crap load of TV and videogames (Guitar Hero 3; The Wire; Veronica Mars; House; Friday Night Lights; Battlestar Galactica; Firefly; Doctor Who; Katamari Damacy….).  Tsk tsk, I know.

Ok, so the clock is ticking, but Josh and I are going to whip this wedding into shape.  Folks interested in the latest and greatest of wedding developments, please stay tuned here.
