  • Hello, all! I've posted a few times, but I've never really said anything about myself before. Here goes:

    Screen Name: fschuller
    Age: 23
    Significant Other's Age: 24
    What You Do: I work security for now and after we get married, we'll be moving to a new state where I'll join local Law Enforcement
    What SO Does:he's working part time and going to school full-time, he's getting his doctorate in Physical Therapy...which reminds me...I'm marrying a DOCTOR! whoo!!! sorry, had to get that out there.
    State of Relationship: We've been together since 2010, he proposed May 2012 and we will be getting married October 18,2013
    How Long You've Been Together: 2 years
    How You Met: Crazy story. I was working a waitress and I received a wrong number at 1:30 am. I had just gotten off work and was feeling social. We talked for a while, became friends, and he introduced me to my husband to be 2 weeks later. He will be serving as one of our groomsmen. : )
    Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married): October 18,2013. It's a Friday!
    Real Babies: none, but we've discussed having them in the future
    Fur Babies: We have a mini-weenie named Loki (aptly named) and when I get more settled, I have wanting a cat.
    Loves: While we're on the subject, cats. Also my fiance, working out, swimming, reading, my mom, and naps.
    Hates: There's not a lot of things I hate, but I dislike it when people say irritating things just to annoy me, I hate it when stupid movies get good reviews
    Pet Peeves: When the toilet seat is left up, bad grammar in an email, and that screeching sound of nails against a chalkboard.
    Hobbies/Activities: I covered most of these, but reading,swimming, running, watching movies/show with the FI, taking Loki to the dog park, and I think that's just about all the hobbies I have, other than wedding planning.
    Favorite Thing About Your SO: There are so many things I love about him: the fact that he accepts me for who I am, he makes me laugh, he keeps up with my randomness, the way he makes me think. I guess my absolute favorite thing about him is how we can have a deep philosophical or political discussion and then immediately start singing "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey
    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: hmm, I don't really like how easily he gets stressed. I find myself trying to calm him down a lot of the time, but that is to be expected with a job and a trying class load. Not mention his father and his sister in law both have cancer.
    Describe Your Personality: I'm laid back, kind of a tomboy, also a bit of a hippie all rolled into one. I'm a nerd, too.  I'm a bit of a smart alec, but I am extremely loyal to the ones I hold dear. The friends that I have, I have had for over 10 years.
    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): 9.8
    I've Been On TK Since: About 2 or 3 months before I was officially engaged.
    How You Came to Be On TK: I knew a venue search was going to be the hardest part of my wedding planning so I started asking around early. A mother of a bride refered me to TK and I've been a member ever since.
    How I like my potatoes: Sweet potatos with cinnamin and marshmellows. yum!
    Favorite book/author: Haha, I'm not even going to try to answer that with one author or book so : Laurel K. Hamilton, Kim Harrison, Bruce Coville, Tamora Pierce, Jodi Picoult, Dan Brown, John Grisham, and Phillipa Gregory.
    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: I've been in the Army for the past 6 years, I recently extended for another year so my FI can share some of my benefits after we get married. We were originally trying to plan our wedding with a deployment in the future, but it was canceled. So, I'm not deploying, but I was hoping that my deployment would pay for a lot of our wedding expenses. So, I'm not an ARMY wife or a military bride in the traditional sense that you immediately think of, I am literally a bride who is in the military who is getting married to a civilian. Oh, and the FI's name is Jody. Which my coworkers find hilarious. FYI: "Jody" is the slang term for the man who steals soldiers' girlfriends/wives while they're overseas. Silly, but true.

  • Klyn1983, that is awesome! How did your family react when you told them you were getting married on a Friday? Also, did you know that at about 11:30 that night, there is going to be a lunar eclipse seen in North America? It was actually one of the reasons I decided on the 18th instead of the 19th.

    Lollie424, I imagine that height difference was strange at first, but after 6 years, you must be used to it! Are you going to wear high heels on the big day? I have a friend who is 4'10 and is a bridesmaid of mine. She is trying to get away with wearing REALLy high wedges  (6" easy) at the outdoor wedding. Should be interesting. : )

    Favorite Thing About Your SO: I’m high strung and he is not, so he is the most amazing person in the world at calming me down and making me look at the big picture, and making me breathe, smile and be happy!
    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: He’s very nonchalant about most things and sometimes I just need him to pretend like he cares a little haha.

    And I started playing an instrument in 3rd grade (violin) then switched in 5th grade (trumpet) and added another my junior year of high school (French horn). Played that and then picked up one last instrument (mellophone) all through my 5 years at college. 9 years of marching band and 16 years of concert band/orchestra.
