Not Engaged Yet

Introduction!

Hello all!

I already posted on the intro thread, and I was being good and reading the "rules before posting" thread, and it suggested to introduce myself as well.

I joined the Knot because my younger sister is getting married next July and I am the maid-of-honor. I am having a lot of fun helping her plan her wedding! I thought this would be a good website to get ideas.

I stumbled upon the boards when I was checking out the website today. I am in a serious relationship, not engaged yet and not talking about getting engaged at this point.

A little about myself-I am 27, live in Michigan, and a civilian contractor for the Army. I have a pup chihuahua/jack russell mix named Jilly and I enjoy spoling my nephew, eating delicious foods and drinking wine. Christmas is my favorite holiday. Did I already say I enjoy wine? :)

Hope to "meet" you all soon!

    It's a toss up between cheesy green bean casserole or garlic mashed potatoes! I love both and not having seconds of either is not an option.

    Welcome.

    I like your intro.

    If you don't like Harry Potter, that's ok.  We can ignore the posts together and talk about something else.

    Love Harry Potter. Although, admittedly I am a little behind on the movies. I have read all of the books, though.

    I could care less about Canada. Except for Michael Buble. He's hot, and I enjoy his music. (If you had asked me about Canada when I was 19, I might have answered this differently :)

    This sounds like a story. What's the story about Canada at 19?

    Is it because Canada is awesome and has a lower drinking age than here and you went over there to drink?  Please say yes, I don't want to be the only one. ;)

    Canadians don't bother me.

    No specific story, however here in Detroit it's as simple as crossing the border and you magically go from being able to legally drink at 19 instead of 21. It's pretty awesome when you are 19. After you turn 21, you're over it.

    If she's the same as me at 19:
    My ultimate vacation plan was to go to Canada so I could participate in my recreational activities of choice without legal consequences...

    PPE, I drank in Canada at 19 :) And took my little sister there to drink on her 19th bday too. But I still love Canada, despite my legal drinking status in the US. . . I am not just a fair weather friend of Canada!<div>

    YES!  I also loved Canada when I was 19 and 20.  Though it's a bit further trek for me.

    My friends also crossed the Canadian border for the purposes of drinking at a lower age than that of MN.

    Loopy and ML-
    Glad someone's with me.  I don't care that the threads exist, I just don't open them and rain on everyone else's parade.
    So if anyone pages or mentions me there, I will never see it.

    I'm pretty mad that I forgot what 'The Sorting Hat' was, and opened that post mildly interested.  Dirty tricksters.

    Drinking age in Alberta and Quebec is 18, eh? The rest of Canada is 19. I forgot that you Americans liked to cross the border for that ;)

    Did any of you ladies who travelled to Canada to drink ever go to Danny's?  I know from here we usually go to Windsor and there's one there.  I've never been, but I had some friends that have.

    I only went to Canada twice before turning 21 and both times were to the casino. Most of my/FI's friends are a year or two younger so I didn't hit Ouellette Ave and the clubs until everyone was at least 19 and I was 21. I was never really into the club scene but Killer Koolaids were always amazing!
