    8. What is your dream job?

    9. How did you and your fiance meet?
    We meet on my campus when he was there passing out flyers for his fraternity party

    10.  When did you get engaged and how did he do it??
    We got engaged on June 12, 2009.  He took me to Seal Beach and got me to go walking on the pier.  After our walk we sat on a bench and watch the sun set.  After being together for 16 years and taking numerous vacations together that was the first time we actually sat and watch the sun set.  During this time he told me he loved me and he thought he was a good dad and would be a good husband.  When I turned around (I was leaning on him) he had my ring! 

    11. When is the Wedding Day?
    June 5, 2010

    12. Where is the ceremony and reception?
    Westridge Golf Club

    13. What are your wedding colors?
    Brown and different shades of green

    14. Where are you honeymooning?
    Well we kind of took a pre-moon in January – we went to Cancun for 7 nights.  At this time we don’t have anything planned, which is kind of a relief.  But I do know that some of my co-workers know we don’t plan on taking one so they all chipped in and got us a weekend get away to Santa Barbara – we will probably try and do that the following weekend.

    15. Favorite wedding vendor so far?
    You know I think would have to be my photographers!  I have used so many of them throughout this process and I really like them all.  We have never taken so many pictures before and I will cherish all of them for my lifetime.

    16. Biggest wedding splurge?
    The entire wedding – since we are paying for it ourselves I’m amazed on how much this is costing us and what we could have done with the money otherwise.

    17. What is something you wish you could have at the wedding but don't?
    I think it is a toss-up between a photo booth and chivari chairs.

    18. Another knottie wedding you'd like to attend?
    Everyone’s

    19. Favorite book?
    A few years ago I went through a reading frenzy – I read so many books I couldn’t keep up – I should have had stock in blackexpressions.com – but I really say I had a favorite – I just LOVED reading their fiction romance.

    20. Favorite movie?
    I’m soooo not a movie person – I love going and watching movies with Kelvin because he LOVES them but I really don’t have an all time favorite. 

    21. Favorite tv show?
    Anything reality – right  now: ANTM, Hills, City, Kendra, TAR, Survivor, Big Brother, American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, Kimora, Project Runway, Kardashians – I need to stop before I embarrass myself even more.  

    22. Favorite wedding dress designer?
    St. Pucchi

    23. Any advice you can give?
    I know it is all exciting but take your time before you book anything – shop around and do your research.  And once you do book it – stop looking for something better.

    24. Anything you wish you could change about your wedding?
    I just wish it wasn’t costing so much!

    25. Share something about yourself!!
    People who know me find it hard to believe that I used to work in Juvenile Hall and wanted to be a police officer.

    Hey Dawn!

    Nice learning more about you...

    I LOVE reality TV myself...

    Did you see ANTM finale last night? What did you think?

    At any point, did you ever think that you would never get married to Kelvin? (I was starting to worry that after being with Ty for 9+ years before the proposal, hewas fine being bf and gf)

    As far as The City goes, Olivia...UGH! Cant stand her!

    Thanks for sharing, Dawn. I think the weekend after the wedding is a good plan for going away. It will give the two of you a chance to re-group after the wedding. btw, i love the Hills-don't ask why, i just do.

    It was nice learning more about you. I like Kendra and the Kardashians too. I still can't believe Kendra is someone's mother.

    It was great learning more about you! The engagement story was so sweet. I don't think my FI and I have ever watched the sunset together. I think we should try it.
