Great idea for a thread!

I’m MrsMcGyro! I’m a transplant from Boston living in New York. I’m 26 (almost 27), and I still look like I’m 13, which most likely is due to the fact that I wear jeans and a zip up hoodie practically every day of my life, except for when I’m wearing awesome hats.

I’ve been married to my darling husband for just over 4 months.

We are parents to the rudest, most spoiled, most adorable pup in the world Seamus. Sometimes he takes me on joyrides in his boat.

A little more about me:
I LOVE: Cooking new recipes, the first cup of coffee of the day, online videos of cute animals, and I’m a TV junkie to the max. My DVR is always filled to the brim with the latest episodes of Dexter, Boardwalk Empire, The Walking Dead, Weeds, Sister Wives, The Real Housewives of every state in the country, The Office, Parks and Rec, 30 Rock, Up All Night, Glee, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, or Oprah’s Lifeclass. I could go on and on and on. I’m obessed.

I HATE: A full sink of dirty dishes, a full basket of dirty laundy, paying bills, milk, and the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

LITTLE KNOWN FACTS: I have 5 tattoos, 2 of which are rather large, but you’d never know it because I keep them covered! I’ve also died my hair every 6-8 weeks for the past 12 or so years with varying degrees of sucess.

CONFESSION: I’m a horrific driver. Like seriously- don’t get in a car with me if you want to live. I also sing in my car at the top of my lungs to songs I don’t know the words to. I like to imagine my grandmother watching me from Heaven laughing at me.

I’d say that just about does it!

  • Wedding: September 2012

Hi! I’m Miss Great Dane! I’ve been around for a few months. I’m planning my September 2012 wedding in Maryland. My Fiance is a doctor in the army and just got restationed to Hawaii, so we’re settling into life in island paradise and trying to not go crazy planning a wedding from so far away. I’m a journalist and work from home, so I’ve been struggling to get out of the house and find ways to meet people in a new place. 

 

Likes:

Big dogs, lifting weights, reading and writing, Pinterest, cooking, shopping online, hiking, beer, the beach, football (Go Redskins!), traveling. 

 

Dislikes:

Fiance working crazy hours, people who use the subject line of an email to convey actual information not repeated in the email text, winter, squash. 

 

Little known facts:

I’m originally from Vermont and grew up on an apple orchard there! After high school I wanted to be out of Vermont really badly, but now I love going back to visit.

I am also guilty of being a faceless bee who has been around for a while, so here goes!

I just turned 30, I have been living in NYC for 7 years and I work in insurance. I am the youngest of 4, completely spoiled and already have 8 nieces and nephews with two more on the way. I was married in Philadelphia on a hot summer day in June 2010 (the first day of the record summer long heat wave) and hope to move back there one day, although I’m not sure if it’s even physically possible to leave NYC and I might miss the pizza I’ll be honest.

Likes

  • DH (Duh)
  • Dogs, actually pets of any kind but mostly dogs and I think Pomeranians are the CUTEST
  • Dirty Martinis
  • Girl Dinners
  • Historical Fiction
  • Going on Vacation with DH
  • Cooking

Dislikes:

  • I agree with Bakerella about people walking slow which leads me to:
  • 1) People leaning on the pole everyone has hold onto in a crowded subway
  • 2) People pushing and screaming “Move in, PEOPLE!!!” on a crowded subway
  • 3) When the subway stops in between stations for no reason.. for 10 minutes.. and I have to pee really bad..
  • 4) When healthy passengers do not offer a seat to pregnant or old people on a crowded subway
  • 5) When I wait forever for people to slowly get off of the subway and I’m one of the first people to get on and the doors slam closed on me
  • Are you sick of hearing about the subway?
  • When someone calls me and immediately says “What’s up?” um.. you called me??

Little Known Facts

  • As a favor to my sister, I tried out with her to be an Eagles Cheerleader and actually made it to the second round
  • I dislike most desserts
  • My favorite place I’ve ever been to is Ko Phuket, Thailand
  • I met DH at work and we carried on a secret office relationship, which everyone actually knew about

Confession

I am guilty of being ‘that girl’ who just wanted to get married while I was in high school and college. When I look back and think of what my life would be like right now if I had married any of my previous BF’s, I shudder at the thought. Not that I dated any flubs (well maybe one flub), but they definitely were not right for me. I am thankful that I spent my early 20’s being single and learned to appreciate a great man like my DH when he came along.

I love this thread. I’ll play, too. I’m MrsJazz. I’ve actually been a long-time lurker and occasional poster under another username. It’s weird and I feel like a stalker sometimes because I recognize and read a lot of the longtime bees and am interested in what they write, but they have no clue who I am. Ha. I joined when MrsSwan became a Bee blogger and the two of us share the same wedding date. (Anyone remember MrsSwan?) I changed my username because mine used to be my first name and I thought that was too much info.

I’m in PR and my DH is a teacher. Our engagement photo was once the featured photo. We met at a bus/train stop in Brooklyn and went back there for our photos. His first words to me were: “Do you like jazz?”

Likes:
Poetry
Michael Jackson Dance Experience on the Wii
EATING! I love food.
Cooking
Traveling
Tattoos

Dislikes:
Yogurt
Heights
Flying
Driving or being in cars
Cold weather

Little known facts:
I can play “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” using my nose
My high school graduated at Madison Square Garden

Confession:
I can’t poop with socks on.

Favorite wedding photo:

And we’re adding a little jazz to the family! Due April 9! We find out the sex next week.

I just thought of another subway dislike! I’m on a roll, lol!!

It is very disagreeable to me when people who are clearly sick enough to stay home ride the subway. And it depresses me even more when they go ahead and cough and/or sneeze withough bothering to cover it up. I had the flu 3 times last year and I don’t even have kids – I ride the NYC subway!!

Hi! I’m BlueSatinBows. Clearly, you can tell by my username that I am obsessed with bows!! Big theme for my wedding in May πŸ™‚ I will be 21 in a few months and I’m from a small town near St. Louis. I graduated from beauty school and have my cosmo liscence but I am going back to school starting in Janurary to get my degree in education (either elementary or secondary Spanish). when i’m bored, i really love to take pics of myself on my mac, like this…

Likes: 

  • wearing big flowery headbands or headbands and pins with bows πŸ™‚
  • my super sweet, funny, supportive, and darling Fiance

  • family time
  • shopping πŸ™‚

Dislikes:

  • being in a LDR and not seeing my Fiance as much as I’d like
  • when people blow their nose at the table
  • rushing
  • when people chew with their mouth open
  • being broke…which i usually am πŸ™

Little Known Facts:

  • I am almost fluent in Spanish. In high school and college, i was a freak about spanish class. I LOVED it!
  • My eyes change colors depending on the light/ time of day

Confession:
I’ve been planning my wedding since I was 8. I know a lot of girls do this. But I was so  super serious about it. I have had a subscription to Bride’s Magazine since I was in 7th grade. When Fiance and i got engaged, I pulled out a huge box in the basement full of years of issues of wedding mags, my planning notebook (full of guest lists, song choices, dress sketches, and menus) and my inspiration book (filled with all the pics i’d taken from magazines for my dream day). Needless to say, my ideas have changed a lot since I was 13. πŸ˜‰

@cherrydoll: I would recommend it to anyone. It’s one of the most beautiful and challenging journeys, and gives you such a fulfilling feeling when you make it back down after reaching the peak! (I’d say a fulfilling feeling when you reach the peak, but for most people it’s a “i want to puke and my head is going to explode lets take pictures and leave” feeling..)
