    How did you meet your FI? One of his friends saw me at one of my volunteer gigs and told him I was someone he should date. He waved her off saying that I probably was married or had a boyfriend. Fast forward 10 months, a friend of mine recommended that I read a blog she found and I loved it. I emailed the author and we started a friendship via email, then phone and finally decided to meet for a drink. He turned out to be the guy who saw me at my volunteer gig.

    When is/was your wedding (date)? November 10, 2012

    What do you love about your FI?  He is so sweet and considerate, he is incredibly well read and able to converse on virtually any topic and he makes me laugh.

    What do you wish was different about your FI? I wished he didn't smoke

    What's your favorite part of planning a wedding? Choosing the invitations

    Hobbies: Reading, Volunteering and I LOVE to cook & bake.

    Pets (bonus points for PIP): Not anymore, but I grew up with both dogs and cats.

    Things you like: Relaxing rainy days, the excitement I get from getting a new cooking utensil and being able to laugh for no reason.

    Things you don't like: Broccoli, I try but it tastes like I am taking a bite out of someone's front lawn.

    Do you prefer cats or dogs? Why? I can't choose. I love them both...dogs love to rough house and play and cats love to cuddle. I am sucker for both.

    How did you meet your FI? I actually whent on a date with a friend of his first and the 2nd time he invited me out he took me bowling with a couple his buddies (my fiance, Keith being one of them). I was immediately attracted to Keith. Brian is a great guy, but we knew we weren't compatible as a couple. I actually found Keith on myspace (back when it was cool) and initiated going out on a date.

    When is/was your wedding (date)? June 16, 2013

    What do you love about your FI? He is a selfless person. Usually makes his decisions based first on how it will affect others. He is not at all jealous. He is very supportive of my hobby/obsession/side business (breeding, showing, training horses). 

    What do you wish was different about your FI? I wish he wanted to ride with me, but the horses just isn't his thing! But he tries to be involved.

    What's your favorite part of planning a wedding? I love that it can be however you want it! You can do the same old things that have been done time & time again or you can march to the beat of your own drum.

    Hobbies: Riding horses, hiking, working out, concerts, helping Keith brew his beer.

    Pets (bonus points for PIP): We have 5 horses: Joker, Windy, Sierra, Tramp & Thomas (2 on the way) and 8 dogs: Oscar, Bailey, Amber, Lindy, Avery, Fatty, Whitey & Hamtaro.

    Things you like: Sushi, rodeo, being around my friends, going to the horse races, cooking.

    Things you don't like: Onions, rain, cold weather, liar, flakes, people who cut you off when you're driving, traffic.

    Do you prefer cats or dogs? Why? Dogs, because nothing beats the excitement of a dog when you get home from being gone...whether it was 5 minutes or 5 hours.

    Tell us something random: Today is a typical sunny southern california day...I love it!

    For some reason I cant get the picture to show up, but this is my competitin hors, Windy: <img src="http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/301677_304182836263715_100000160035920_1497322_1540013715_n.jpg">

    How did you meet your FI? We met in high school. We were both involved in a one act play- I tried out for a part on stage and he was supposed to be the behind the light board, but we were one MAN short, and I can't act, so the director put me behind the light board and forced him on stage. He spent the next 3 months telling me that I was doing his job allllll wrong, and we hated each other. 6 months later we were dating, and we've been inseparable ever since. 

    When is/was your wedding (date)? June 30th, 2012

    What do you love about your FI? He is a super nerd. 

    What do you wish was different about your FI? Sometimes he doesn't know when to stop with a joke or an argument and it just goes too far.

    What's your favorite part of planning a wedding? Thinking about how awesome it is going to be and having all the people I love there with me, especially friends and family and thinking about all the things we're going to do to make the day special, not only for me but for our guests (late night karaoke and pizza, hell yes!)

    Hobbies: I've done karate for the last 12 years.

    Pets (bonus points for PIP): I don't currently have any pets, but I used to have a hedgehog named Turbo. 

    Things you like: school, sleep, friends, karate, baking. 

    Things you don't like: people who think wearing leggings is the same thing as wearing pants.

    Do you prefer cats or dogs? Why? I like both, but I'm mildly allergic to cats and FI is very allergic to cats, so I'd have to say dogs win out on this one.

    Tell us something random: Totally random? I'm eating lunch right now. Wedding random? This year is our wedding, both of our parents 25 anniversaries, and my grandparents' 50th anniversary. How cool is that?

    Oh, on E? Yeah, I read that post. I lurk there a lot. They really are all nice ladies. They just get a lot of the same questions over and over again (just like here on PS), so they get a little tired of it. I'm sorry you felt like they were jumping down your throat. They gave you some good advice, but I know that sometimes their delivery can be a bit harsh. Try not to take it personally.
    ETA - I have no idea why this posted weird. Sorry.

    How did you meet your FI?
    when we were both still in high school, he got a job at the truck stop where I worked. I walked in the breakroom some reese's cups I was about eat and he begged me not to open them because he is severely allergic to peanuts and forgot his epi-pen that day. We always joke about how I almost killed him the first time we met.

     April 27, 2012.

    What do you love about your FI?
    So much, he's been there for me at all hours of the night when I was going trhoug some tough things, he was and still is my best friend.

    What do you wish was different about your FI?
     He doesn't think before he speaks, most often. He doesnt know when to stop, either so when he says something stupid he wont just drop it. I

He loves our dogs and cats as much as I do and I know he is going to make an awesome dad if we decide to have kids one day! And he has amazing blue eyes!
    What do you wish was different about your FI? Sometimes he is lazy and unmotivated when it comes to cutting the grass or help me with cleaning the house. I would like it if he stood up to his mom when she makes snarky comments about me or our wedding.

Nagging FI to cut the grass. People who are mean to animals - Those people I could do very mean things to.

    I worked with his sister at my first job in h.s. and we would hang out after work at their house...  we were around eachother but not really friends, then a couple years later I was sort of dating his roomate, so I was over there a bunch, (the roomate was actually my frist kiss.  LOL.  we are both still good friends with him) fast forward about 5 years and his sister moved back into town after being away for college and he and I reconnected hanging out with her one night 2 1/2 years ago.  He finally asked me out and we've been together ever since

    What do you love about your FI? He is incredibly loyal. He is the person I call if I needed to hide a dead body. 
    What do you wish was different about your FI? I wish he took criticism better and wasn't so hard on himself. Especially with him being in the military that sometimes makes things a million times harder than they are. 
    What's your favorite part of planning a wedding? So far, I've had great experiences dress shopping. I like dressing up, so it's fun. But ask me again after I go try on things with my mother. 
    Hobbies: I garden, well, I have plants in pots that I try not to kill. I also love to cook. I'm learning how to cross stitch because I found this awesome thing I want to do for our house: http://www.etsy.com/listing/84862251/mawwiage-customizable-pattern
    Pets (bonus points for PIP): You can see them in my avatar and sig pic. The puppy is Archie (Archimedes), and he's a Corgi/Jack Russell mix. He looks so different right now because he just went to the groomer and he got a summer shave because so.much.hair. He's just about 10 months now, we got him when he was 8 weeks. The cat is Huck Finn. I found him abandoned as a kitten when I was in college, and he'll be seven at the beginning of August. 
    Things you like: I love blue cheese, the stinkier the better. Also, rainy days (which are rare here in Texas where we're living), farmer's markets, and LUSH bath stuff. And nail polish. So much nail polish. And vintage hats. 
    Things you don't like: I am really really bad at certain parts of cleaning, simply because I don't like them. I clean things like dishes and bathrooms, because I don't like things to be dirty, but everything else, I'm just pretty unorganized. And I hate dusting. 
    Do you prefer cats or dogs? Why? I would have always said I'm a cat person until about a year ago. And even then I always preferred dogs who acted like cats because they're generally pretty low maintenance. And they're chill, and will come and love on you, but they don't require heaps of attention. Then we got Archie. He's nuts and has taken forever to even get basic training and he has to walk at least 30 minutes a day. And I love him. So, we're thinking of getting another dog in a year or so, once this one grows up a bit. 
    Tell us something random: I will go up to 30 minutes out of my way to avoid driving on an interstate. Which sucks because where we live right now (San Antonio, TX) everything's on an interstate. I really don't like driving and didn't get my license til I was 21. My FI got his when he was 22.

    How did you meet your FI?  We went to the same (small) college at the same time, but we didn't know each other then.  Just knew of each other (it was that small). Then a couple years after graduation we ended up working at the same company together for awhile, where he had a huge crush on me but never let on.  He tried to come back and visit/ask me out a few times after he quit, but chickened out every time. That was in about 1994.  In 2010 he was poking around our school's facebook alumni page looking for his old roommates, and found me.  Offered to take me out to dinner and the rest is history.
    When is/was your wedding (date)?  Still working on it, but hopefully spring of 2013.

    What do you love about your FI?  He has a kind heart and is quick to give people the benefit of the doubt (sometimes to a fault). He has an incredible way with words, especially when he's being sweet.  He has a fantastic work ethic and feels a responsibility as the 'man of the house' without being sexist about it.  He respects me as his equal but still feels protective of me.  And he has the corniest sense of humor ever.

    What do you wish was different about your FI?  He has a very difficult time forgiving himself for things. He's a Republican (though I'm working on that). And he'd lose his head if it wasn't attached.

    What's your favorite part of planning a wedding?  So far all of it, but we're just barely starting.  I'm looking forward to creating something that really reflects us both.
    Hobbies:  Cooking, reading, beauty and makeup stuff.  I like gardening but I can't tolerate heat well enough to do it.
    Pets (bonus points for PIP):  My cat Gracie.  I'm freaking out about what to do because my future stepson is  deathly allergic to cats, so she can't come with me. She's very very attached to me and hates all other people. I don't know anyone who can take her so I'm really scared about how to provide for her.  FI wants a dog so I'm sure we'll get one eventually.

    Things you like:  My Fi, days off work, pedicures, chocolate, long drives with FI where we just talk the whole time.
    Things you don't like:  My job, cleaning, bills, cat barf, reptiles, broccoli.
    Do you prefer cats or dogs? Why?  Cats, they just fit my personality better. I like how smart they are.  But I like dogs too. 

    Tell us something random:  One of my customers at work today forgot her own name.

    How did you meet your FI? I was in an aol chat room, looking for suggestions on fun places to hang out after I moved to an area I didn't know very well.  He sent me a private message and one thing led to another and here we are.....

    When is/was your wedding (date)? 4/14/13

    What do you love about your FI? There is not a mean bone in his body.  No matter how tired, broke, or stressed out he is, he ALWAYS makes time when someone needs help, needs to talk, or needs him in some way.  He would do anything for the ones he loves.

    What do you wish was different about your FI?
    I wish he was better at cleaning up after himself.  Doesn't take but 2 seconds to put your empty water bottle in the recycle can or to put the empty toilet paper roll that you just changed into the garbage. 

    What's your favorite part of planning a wedding?  Aside from the fact that we're not doing the typical cookie cutter wedding, I love all the little touches that incorporate who we are and what we like.

    Hobbies: reading, cooking, and trying to be a good mommy to our daughter, who is almost 5.

    Pets (bonus points for PIP):  none.  However, at my daughter's request, we just bought a plastic fish bowl with a plastic fish that swims around when you turn it on.  lol

    Things you like:
    the smell of freshly cut grass, sitting by the water to think, spending time with my family, finding new things to do/new places to explore.

    Things you don't like: cruel people, people who don't control their unruly children in public, mushrooms, sushi, Target, and being a "widow" during fantasy football season

    Do you prefer cats or dogs? Why?  I like cats because they pretty much keep to themselves and take care of themselves.  They're not as needy as dogs and I'm the type of person who doesn't want to have to stop and pet a dog, play fetch, go for a walk, etc when I'm in the middle of doing something. 

    Tell us something random: For 8 years, I lived in an apartment that was haunted.  Even dd saw "the man" that she later told us was named Bill.  He would turn on her musical toys during the night - in the same order that they were lined up on the shelf or on the floor.  He turned down our thermostat, even after I put clear tape over it.  He bent one of my Christmas candy cane decorations in half.  We would often hear him walking up and down the hallway.  Strangely, he never hurt us - he just liked to be recognized and once I started talking out loud to him, he would go away for a while, then come back for more fun.  I never actually SAW him, but all the kids in the family did, and he was always in the same spot in the kitchen.  When that apartment flooded and we had to move out, he was mad.  He kept slamming cabinets and turning lights on and off and knocking boxes over.  I don't think he wanted us to go.  Hopefully, the new occupants are nice to him so he can be happy again.
