Re: Let's Get to Know Each Other

  • good call, Leisel.

    Where are you from? grew up in Western Massachusetts, migrated to Northern Virginia


    What do you do for a living? im a paralegal in an office that assists people with disabilties.


    Any pets? 2 cats, Cheyenne and Ada and a fish named Barney


    What's your favorite vacation spot? Tough call.  I love going to my grandparents house in Rhode Island, but I also loved when we went to St Thomas and St John.


    How did you meet your significant other? What do you like most about him/her? We met in a college political organization.  I like that FI makes me laugh.


    What's your favorite part of your wedding/future wedding? I think my favorite part will be the ceremony- we are hoping to have a friend officiate it.

    Where are you from? I'm going to guess Vermont

    What do you do for a living? I think that you're probably an interior designer

    Any pets? 3 cats?

    What's your favorite vacation spot? The Seychelles...

    How did you meet your significant other? Hot dog stand at a baseball game? I think he probably offered to buy you a hot dog, then you asked for a veggie burger instead, and he knew at that moment that he would never eat another piece of meat.

    What do you like most about him/her? His curly hair

    What's your favorite part of your wedding/future wedding? I'm confused because it looks like you already had your wedding but I would say you were most excited about your beautiful dress!

    Where are you from?
    Winnipeg, Canada (halfway between Toronto and Vancouver)
    What do you do for a living?

    My official title is "Student Resources Coordinator" for a private vocational school. Basically I manage an admin office and write for the school's blog
     
    Any pets?

    We have 1 furbaby. A cat named Nermal

    What's your favorite vacation spot?

    Internationally I would say Ireland. H and I got married there last year and we both miss it soooooooooooooo much. I also loved South Africa though.
    Within Canada I would say Whiteshell Provincial Park or Montreal. Depending on what I was in the mood for (camping vs. big city)

    How did you meet your significant other? What do you like most about him/her?

    We both worked at the airport in our city. I worked for the tourism department and he worked in security. I was friends with his dad and we were eventually introduced. What I like most about him is that he completely balances me out. I'm very "type-A" personality and he's a lot more relaxed.

    What's your favorite part of your wedding/future wedding?

    The venue. We got married at Ashford Castle in Western Ireland and it was breath taking. The weather wasn't bad (it drizzled a little but compared to the weather back home it was almost tropical) and we did some Falconry on the castle grounds the day before the wedding (which was my birthday). I feel like the decor and the ambiance in the venue really suited us and it was intimate (just the two of us, the photog, officiant and two witnesses we had never met before :P).

  • Hello ladies!

    Where are you from? Chicago suburbs (born and raised in western, live in northern now). 
    What do you do for a living?  I am an environmental engineer.  I clean up all the dirty nasty stuff that was dumped in the ground before regulations made it illegal. 
    Any pets?  FI and I have a cat named Oreo.  Here's a picture of him sleeping:

    Where's your favorite vacation spot?  I don't get to take too many vacations, but my favorite place I've ever been is Cinque Terre, Italy.  I'm sure Hawaii will be on the list after my HM.
    How did you meet your S/O?  What do you like most about him?  We met on engineering orientation day, freshman year at U Illinois (I-L-L).  We were in the same group for ice breakers and a foil boat building for holding pennies competition (civil engineering at it's finest).  My favorite thing about him is how good he is at making me feel better when I'm down. 

    What's your favorite part of your future wedding?  The honeymoon!  I can't wait to be off work for 2.5 weeks.  Actual wedding stuff, I think my favorite part is my dress.
