    How Long You've Been Together: 4 1/2 years

    Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married): January 3, 1937. That would have been cool, 1337 for a wedding day. But no, we're not engaged yet so N/A
    Real Babies:
    I'd say in 6-10 years I'll come back to this question to update. For now, no.
    Fur Babies: Quincy, the beagle/chihuahua/dachund
    Loves: Where I live. The architecture, the history (something to do with some type of a revolution ;)...), the autumn foliage. Born and raised!
    Hates: I hate when people cut me off, don't use a blinker, or don't let a car change into their lane. Masshole driver? I'll accept that. It is what it is!

    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: He can also be passionate about video gaming...when I'm sitting on his bed twiddling my thumbs!
    Describe Your Personality: I'm really quiet before I get to know people. I take in the environment and my surroundings.

    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): Pretty low I guess, 3. N00bs and pre-planners don't upset me they just kind of annoy me because they always come in packs. All you other ladies with your quick words get to them first anyway :p

    How You Came to Be On TK:
    I used to want to be a wedding planner. That was a short lived dream. I work at a florist too so I was always looking at floral arrangments (even for my very distant wedding 0_o). I ended up clicking on "Community" and finding NEY. Thanks, NEY :)
    How I like my potatoes:
    Mashed and Instant. Or scalloped.
    Favorite book/author: I almost said "The Help", but that's because I just read it and loved it. My all-time favorite would probably be The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. It's probably that book that got me so interested in the culture. I've taken two years of Arabic Language & Culture classes as well as "The Islamic World" and I'm signed up for "Islam and the Medieval World" for next semester! Once I finish my language classes I can declare and Arabic Studies minor....all that from just asking me my favorite book I'm sorryEmbarassed

    State of Relationship: Living together
    How Long You've Been Together: A little over a year, officially.
    How You Met: At my BFF's wedding. We were both in the wedding party. I even caught the bouquet. He noticed me first, at the rehearsal, when I was rehearsing with the pianist (I did some singing for the ceremony). Gave me his dessert at dinner. We started talking on Facebook when I still lived in NYC, then AIM, then phone. I'd take long walks around Brooklyn and we'd talk until my battery ran out. I came out to MN for a 6-week summer job and decided to stay. :)

    Real Babies: n/a
    Fur Babies: One cat, male, 1 year old, named Marlon. Here he is:

    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): Usually no more than 2. But if we're venting about someone who's being unfair or hurtful to a fellow NEYer, it can go up.
    I've Been On TK Since: Fall 2010. (I may have jumped the gun a little, but I'm all better now.)
    How You Came to Be On TK: I was a little batty and looking too much at dresses, flowers, etc., way before I should have been. (Didn't do anything crazy like visit venues or contact vendors, though.) In my defense, people kept telling me they thought my BF was going to propose by Xmas 2010 and it fed the BSC.
    How I like my potatoes: Baked with butter, salt, and pepper; sweet potatoes with butter or candied; will admit to liking the pouch mix by Idahoan--they taste most like real.
    Favorite book/author: Can't pick! I'm one of the Harry Potter fans on the board, though.
    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: I speak conversational French. I make killer buttermilk pancakes from scratch by way of a four-generations-old family recipe.

    How Long You've Been Together:
    5 years as of May

    How You Met: My friends all moved to Maine to become beatnicks after high school. BF happened to be living in the apartment above them and we met at one of their house parties. We hit it off right away.

    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: When he shaves he leaves all his hair in the sink. It's gross.

    Describe Your Personality: I'm the cynical touchstone for most of my friends. I'm way nicer on boards than I am IRL.

Now one of my good friends is getting married and we're doing something similar. I'm NEY so I started posting on the boards.

    How I like my potatoes: I really only like potato chips and fries. I'm the worst Boston, Irish girl ever.

    Screen Name: snorwo3

    Age: 20, 21 in a few weeks.

    Significant Other's Age: 27

    What You Do: Currently a student at LSU. I wait tables and I work at a bar.

    What SO Does: The best job ever. Travels for 5-9 days at a time setting up counter-terrorist training courses for SWAT, police, and first responders. His trips are in no particular pattern, but last 5-9 days each. He's gone 40-50% of the year if I'd have to guess and it's done wonders for our relationship. Sometimes that time alone helps everything.

    State of Relationship: Dating. Living together.

    How Long You've Been Together: 2 years and some odd months (exact time in sig)

    How You Met: Don't make fun.. but on a local sports website. We ended up having tons of mutual friends and it's surprising we didn't already know each other.

    Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married): n/a

    Real Babies: 0

    Fur Babies: LUCY!!!! My Westie (photo in my sig)

    Loves:  Proper grammar, house decorating, DIY crafts/projects, cooking/dining out.. I'm a big foodie, traveling.

    Hates: What a hard question for me, lol. There are things I hate but they don't seem important enough to put in an about-me questionairre. I really hate non-genuine people... like people who pretend they're something they're not. 

    Pet Peeves: Way too many to type here, lol.

    Hobbies/Activities: I always thought I had no hobbies and it made me sad, but lately I've been all about crafts and DIY projects around the home! Also, I enjoy painting. I have no artistic ability, but I enjoy it and don't care.

    Favorite Thing About Your SO: He understands me and what I need out of a relationship. If I want alone-time, I get alone-time. If I'm feeling "needy" (as we call it) he'll cuddle me and be sweet. He also has an infectious personality that makes everyone love him.

    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: He's much more emotional and sensitive than I am and sometimes gets offended at things I never meant to be offensive. It's no big deal when I get the chance to explain, but sometimes his emotions get the best of him and he gets angry at me for something I never meant to do. As you can see by my rambling, it's something we've been working on. 
    Also.. my other least favorite.. he's ADD and refuses medication. That's fine and all, but I have to repeat 90% of everything I say when he has ANY distractions and it drives me insane.

    Describe Your Personality: I am silly and free-spirited while still sometimes overly-organized. It's an odd combination. I am a grandma for my age and it's pathetic hahahaha. I do crafts and sit at home rather than going out and getting wasted every night. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing. I truly try to see the good in all people, but I'm honestly not a people person. I am introverted and enjoy my time alone. Contrary to those traits though, I have many friends. I'm indescribable.

    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): I'm not certain how to answer this, but I can definitely be snarky lol.

    I've Been On TK Since: 2008? But these forums not too long.

    How You Came to Be On TK: Love weddings. Not even my own future one only... Just wedding stuff in general.

    How I like my potatoes: I hate potatoes.

    Favorite book/author: I'm an English major. Too many.

    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: I'll have to come back to this one as an edit.
