#5. 6 years ago...

I met my future husband and didn't even know it.

In January of 2003, I moved from Ohio to Florida, to partake in what is know as the Walt DIsney World College Program for the next 7 {amazing} months.

While there, I lived in an apartment complex that was strictly other fellow college program goers. I became really good friends with the people who lived above me. Well, one of these people, whom I will call Cesar, had some friends visit him from Texas for their spring break. I hung out with them the whole week they were there and became good friends with the 2 of them as well. In fact, these 2 guys had so much fun visiting, that when they went back home, they immediately joined the program too! Well, needless to say, one of these boys was Mr. T-Love

For the rest of this program I hung out with these guys a lot, and we all became extremely close friends. I consider them some of my best friends. But Mr. T-Love and I, even though we had tons of fun together, all the time, we didn't know then, how much our lives would collide after the program was over, considering I live in Ohio, and he lived in Texas. But you can find out about that in my next post, in the mean time, here are some pics of us during the college program with Disney.

Mr. T-Love, Myself, and Grizzly

Mr. T-Love and Myself with a little froggy - We had no clue at this time that 6 years from then we would be engaged to each other. We were just friends.

Cesar and I. Man, that was so long ago.

I love looking back on these pics, and thinking about that whole experience (it was one of the best experiences of my life) and just thinking about how back then, T-Love and I just had no clue what fate had in store for us. I love it though. Find out more in a future post!

#4. Funny Story...

So I was doing some stumbling on the internet today, when I came across this great little story. It is an absolute must read!

Jennifer’s wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her
excitement — not even her parent’s nasty divorce.

Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear and would be the best
dressed mother-of-the-bride ever!

A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father’s new
young wife had bought the exact same dress! Jennifer asked her to
exchange it, but she refused. ‘Absolutely not, I look like a million
bucks in this dress, and I’m wearing it,’ she replied.

Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, ‘Never mind sweetheart.
I’ll get another dress. After all, it’s your special day.’ A few days
later, they went shopping and did find another gorgeous dress. When they
stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, ‘Aren’t you going to return
the other dress? You really don’t have another occasion where you could
wear it..

Her mother just smiled and replied, ‘Of course I do, dear. I’m wearing
it to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding.’


I love it...

I stumbled on it at Wedding Glee

#2. One Thing

As of this moment, EVERY aspect of our wedding day, is, well, a bit unclear. But good news! There is one thing that I do know. This is what we will be giving to our guest as favors. Yummy!

This pic came from Stylish Giving. But I originally saw it somewhere else first, a while ago, and now I don't remember where!!!! When I do find it, I will post that one, because I will probably package it a little more closely to that one than to the one above. But either way, I am uber excited about this for some reason, I think it's so appropriate too because I definitely plan on having a bonfire on my wedding night!

#1. Umm, so uh, HI!

My name is Cookie. This is my blog. Nice to meet you! Here, is the scoop:

1. This is my first blog EVER!

2. OK, number 1 was a lie, but I didn't stick to my first blog for very long. It wasn't very fun. It was about dieting. I'm no good at dieting, and let's face it, it's not fun, hence the ever so early blog death.

3. THIS blog will be about Me, my Love, and My Wedding, and anything and everything else I wanna talk about!!! Yay!!! Now that is way more fun to write about if you ask me.

4. We shall call my fiance Mr. T-Love, and I shall be Miss Cookie. We have a dog, Maliboo (Boo for short), and a kitty, Peaches, who I sometimes call Kitty.

5. I have only been engaged for a week now. He popped the question on Friday, April 17th, 2009. I haven't stopped smiling since.

6. I'm no good at planning things, I am the most indecisive person EVER and it will show through in this blog. I will most likely change my theme every week for the first 2 months until I settle on one, and then repeat the cycle as required.

7. Since April 17th, 2009, I have developed a new, and severe addiction: Wedding Blogs! I can't stop reading them and I LOVE all the spectacular ideas and stories that you all have. Which makes me excited because I will be stealing some for my very own special day.

8. I can't wait to get married, I can't wait to plan the Wedding, and I can't wait to dive even further into all the excellent blogs that I have just subscribed to and to find even more bloggy goodness in the future.

9. Here's some pics of us before I sign out.

T-Love and Cookie

Kitty and Boo (sometimes they forget which is the dog and which is the cat)

Well it was nice to meet you! I'll be back soon with some more bloggish stuff...
