Ok! So I was able to find THE dress and cross it off the list!
(PS if anyone in Tampa Bay Area, I went to The White Closet-https://www.facebook.com/whiteclosetbridalco) They are amazing and work so well with you 🙂
ANYWAYS, when i bought the dress I was given a nifty bride hanger as a thank you because this month is their 2 year anniversary. Also entered for different prizes in a raffle! Woot! So i got my dress, 2 tickets in a raffle and this nifty hanger:
Well I was just in love with the hanger but I wanted something that was personalized to me. I had been looking at hangers on Etsy and was planning on ordering one.
I then decided I should try and bend the wire as I am a DIY girl. Anything for this wedding that I can take on myself, I am going to 🙂
So I attempted and it was okay but I have low patience (taurus). My fiance said ‘Let me try’ and I responded with NO! This is my project! (Stubborn is another Taurus trait)
Finally I let him and WOW. I couldn’t believe on his first try he did so good!
I am going to be redoing my hanger on a cherry hanger with the date also but take a look at first try:
Then of course after I posted these, a bunch of friends wanted them and the business already started growing! 🙂 We decided to use any money from the hangers towards our wedding! Great extra income!
After 3 years of being together he still suprises me!
Anyone else with a fiance that has shown you hidden talents AFTER being engaged and being together awhile?! 🙂

I know, I thought it would be easy until I realized how much patience it took! I can’t believe how fast he picked it up! 🙂 I’m just glad hes willing to bear with me and my DIY crafts so we can save money! And glad he helps with them!

Haha that’s so cool, they look great!! You guys even started a business, wow!
My BF shocked the hell out me when we moved in together. He had lived at home forever and his mom always cooked for his family. He never cooked anything more difficult than grilled cheese. When he moved in, I was like “No way am I doing all the cooking. You’re doing half.” And out of the complete blue he turns out to be an AMAZING cook. No one ever taught him but he’s good at chemistry so maybe thats it…now I have to convince him to start baking haha.

@christinaann0206: Wow, he did an awesome job!
My FI is so good at mental math, like crazy good. I love it when we go shopping because he can do percents and taxes in his head so I know how much something is on sale without having to whip out my phone. It also comes in handy when budgeting my finances(:
