- Wedding: February 2015 - Mount Hermon
I saw the May girls post an introduction thread and thought it would be a good idea. So, introduce yourself! Tell us about yourself, your FI, your wedding, and anything else you’d like to mention.
I’m Ally, I’m almost 23, my new last initial wil be C, and I no longer want to be an RN but I haven’t decided what to make my new username. We’re getting married on Sunday, the 22nd, which happens to also be our 3rd anniversary (by my count. FI thinks it was Valentine’s Day. Whatever). We met in college, through my roommates, and bonded over our mutual love for really well-executed fiction (books, TV, and movies). That’s a really fancy way of saying we’re giant nerds.
We’re getting married in the Santa Cruz mountains, in CA. It’ll be a heavy DIY wedding, especially the flowers, which everyone will probably pitch in to help with, just like with my cousins’ weddings. I am totally in love with my dress, I got shoes, and we have a photographer. Everytime I think about how much we have left to do I want to curl up in a ball and cry. It’s overwhelming!
My mom is….a difficult person, made worse by the fact that I live with her at the moment. My dad is a saint. He and my FI are very alike (shut up, Freud).
We’re dog people, and I can’t wait until I can get my big, fluffy, golden retriever puppy. But, since that is not an apartment dog, first I will be getting an all black kitty. I’ve never had a cat before, but what the hay? I like other people’s cats.
Oh what else….? I was a psychology major and haven’t decided if I want to go to grad school. I love Disney and Disneyland with all my heart. My engagement ring diamond is FMIL’s and I almost cried when FI told me she wanted to give it to us. I hate heat and summer and sweating and love winter. I like to write fiction, and started writing when I was 13. Jesus, it’s been 10 years? Wow. I recently joined a Methodist Church and LOVE it. I like hiking and camping, and we are actually planning to go camping for our honeymoon (my idea).
Let’s get to know one another. Ask me questions! Post stuff about you and I’ll ask you questions.
