Wanted to Introduce Myself and say hi :)

Hi Ladies :)

Just thought I would write a quick note to introduce myself. I stumbled accross this board while looking through the Knot , since Im on here looking around so much I thought Id just join up. I've been dating an amazing man for awhile and we are now talking about marriage. No engagement ring yet or anything and I am fine with that, Im 31 and know this is the person I want to spend my life with, so when it happens it happens. We have randomly thrown out next fall as a possibility so hence my dreaming around on The Know boards. My twin sister got married a few years ago and met some wonderul ladies through this site an got lots of help in her planning so Im hoping I can do the same sort of networking :) So yeah , thats me. Im Sara! Glad to be here and hope to have alot more communication with all of you!!

Re: Wanted to Introduce Myself and say hi :)

  • Hi Sara!

    You seem sweet!
  • Nice to meet you! It's wonderful that you are so lucky to be in love with someone who loves you back! The one thing you're going to hear a lot on these boards, and especially in this thread, that we don't condone preplanning, setting a date and making wedding related decisions unless you're engaged. 
    So you should putting the potentital wedding/engagement out of your mind and pick up a lobby! Or read. The more you focus on it, the more you will go crazy!

    Tell us more about yourself! There is a sticky at the top of the board that has a get-to-know-you post that you can fill out and post here!

    All of this.

    And don't look at too much wedding stuff before you're engaged.  Trust me... it gets old FAST!

    Do you live with your BF?

  • No more pink, please. 

    Don't plan your wedding before you are engaged. It's putting the cart before the horse, and you're taking away from the time you're having right now with the man you love.

    I was really excited at first... a seemingly normal newb! 

    Then. Then you posted your survey.

    Hates: disrespect, ignorance, cats :) 

    This is NOT okay. Putting a smiley face after it doesn't make it better.

    Brady is unamused.

  • Although I realize this is coming from a crazy cat lady who has three of her own, I will never understand how people hate cats. They're cute, funny, smart, entertaining, cute, cuddly, playful, loving, cute and a billion other words to describe them as awesome. To each their own, but cats are still the sh!t.

    Yes, but Fred is a Weasley, so he at least should be allowed to get in on the Potter time.

  • I don't think I've ever shared my kitty pics! Granted, I don't have many pictures on my computer of them (since they're not kittens anymore, lol).

    Welcome. Perhaps all you need is a little cat exposure to cure you of that dislike. ;)

    Unfortunately, I still can't post pictures. :(
